Panakala Lakshmi Narasimha Swami
Andhra Pradesh

Panakala Lakshmi Narasimha Swami is a cave temple situated on the Mangalagiri hills. Mangalagiri is one of the Ashta swayamvyaktha Kshetras of Mahavishnu. Narasimhar is Swayambhu here.
@LostTemple7
Sthala Puranam says that there was an asura, Namuchi, who was destroyed by Mahavishnu here. It is said that Mahavishnu has told Devas that offering Panakam will cool down his anger after slaying demon Namuchi. This happened in Krithayugam, and
he would be satisfied with ghee in Threthayugam, milk in Dwaparayugam & with panakam(Jaggery water) in Kaliyugam.

We can pour Panakam to Wide open mouth of Narasimhar and a gargling sound is heard while pouring. This will happen every time we pour the jaggery water.
There are no traces as to where this Panakam goes, also we cannot find any ant nearby. Panaka Nevidyam is very famous here.
ॐ उग्रं वीरं महाविष्णुं ज्वलन्तं सर्वतोमुखम् ।
नृसिंहं भीषणं भद्रं मृत्युमृत्युं नमाम्यहम् ॥

Narasimha Murthaye Namah
🙏🕉🙏

Today is Vrischikam 1

Vrischikam month of Malayalam is very important for devotees of Ayyappa Swamy. Vratham of 41 days are taken before Darshan of Ayyappa in Sabarimala. Ayyappa Swamy, Hari Hara Putra (child of Mahavishnu in Mohini Avatar). Pandalam king who went
@LostTemple7
for hunting saw the child with bell in his neck & named him Manikandan.
Manikandan avatar was to destroy Mahishi the demon. When aim is fulfilled he requests his father, wish to do Tapasya in forest & built a temple there. Whoever visit Sabarimala should take a 41 day Vratham
The ultimate aim of Vratham is self-transformation. Ayyappa Vratham & journey to Sabarimala is one & perhaps, most realistic way to reach him in this Kali yuga. Mudra mala symbolizes beginning of the Vratham. It reminds the devotee that God is inside him.

Prabodhini Ekadashi : Tomorrow

ऊँ नारायणाय विद्महे, वासुदेवाय धीमहि
तन्नो विष्णु प्रचोदयात्
Ekadashi tithi which falls on Shukla Paksha of Karthik month is called Prabodhini Ekadashi or Dev Uthani Ekadashi. Mahavishnu, who goes to Yoga Nidra on Dev Shayani Ekadasi,
@LostTemple7
which is termed as Chaturmas period, wakes up on this Prabodhini Ekadashi.

Importance of Dev Prabodhini Ekadasi is narrated to Narada Muni by Brahma Deva. It is said that Mahavishnu married Tulasi on this day, so Tulsi Vivah is performed on this day. Ekadashi story is
related to Mahavishnu's Yoga Nidra, which was not predictable.

Asuras who took this as an advantage disturbed Devas, one among the asura was Shankhyayan. He stole the Vedas that were the source of all creation. Thus every Devas approached Mahavishnu who fought with asura &
