Srinarasimhakutumbam.org is an interactive blog cum portal initiated by His Holiness Srimad Jagadguru Shankaracharya Sri Sri Swayam Prakasha Sachidananda Saraswathi Maha Swamiji AdiShankaracharya Sharada Lakshmi Narasimha Peetam, Sree Math Hariharapura.
Sri Sri Mahaswamiji’s objective behind this initiative is to raise the awareness of viewers about various temples of Lord Narasimha in India and other countries, who are the devotees of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy.
Sreemath Hariharapura has developed this blog as a humble service to Lord Sri LakshmiNarasimha.This blog is aimed to benefit devotees worldwide, and to serve as a useful resource to all those interested in learning about Lord SriNarasimha. The blog, as the name suggests “srinarasimhakutumbam”, aims to bring in all Narasimha Kshetras and Narasimha Bhaktas under a single roof, thus facilitating Satsanga and strengthening the bond between devotees and temples.
To facilitate Bhaktas and Yatrigas, Sreemath Hariharapura has initiated an effort to furnish full-fledged details about these sacred dwellings of Lord Narasimha, by developing an interactive blog cum portal by name ‘srinarasimhakutumbam.org’. This blog becomes a comprehensive guide to all the Narasimha Kshetras of India. Sreemath Hariharapura has assigned a team of workers, who personally travel to every Narasimha Temple and collect reliable and authentic information.
The information so gathered and confirmed by the temple priests/authorities, is published in this blog and presented to viewers. For further reference, video clippings recorded at the particular temples are also uploaded. The blog also plans to post timely updates on the upcoming festivals or Poojas that are to take place at the various Narasimha Kshetras.
The main attracting feature of this blog is the Aasirvachanam of Mahaswamiji. Guru Anugraha can only guarantee the Poorna Anugraha of Lord Nrsimha. The Anugraha Bhashanam of MahaSwamiji is published regularly, so that users can gain both Guru and Deiva Anugraha. In addition, this blog also includes the exclusive speeches of scholars, divine experiences of devotees, stories from ancient texts, Shlokas and Stutis in praise of Lord SriNrsimha, and the like.
Also there is a special audio, vedio section in this portal, for music and dance lovers on Narasimha rendered by great artists.
Classification Of Kshetras
Srinarasimhakutumbam.org is an extensive research project on the Narasimha Temples of India. A committee under the able guidance of Mahaswamiji works on this blog to keep it current and update. Presently, our blog coordinators have found more than 1200 Narasimha Kshetras in India. For clear and organized presentation of the collected data, we have categorized the Narasimha temples under 3 heads
- Divya Kshetras
- Punya Kshetras
- Well-Known Narasimha Temples
- Divya Kshetras
Narasimha Maha Mantra is the most powerful Mantra of Lord SriNarasimha. This Mantra, also called the Mantra Raja (King among all Mantras), contains 32 Aksharas. According to many revered Narasimha Upasakas, the number 32 is very closely related to Lord Nrsimha. The divine significance of the number 32 is considered a very effective and beneficial aspect during Narasimha Aaradhana. With regard to the same, in this blog, we have listed ’32’ Puranic temples of Lord sriNarasimha under the title “Divya Kshetras”.
The 32 Divya Kshetras are those Kshetras where Lord Narasimha is said to have manifested on His own or the Kshetras where Maharishis performed severe penance worshipping the Lord Sri Narasimha and got His direct blessings.
Although many more temples may qualify to be included under the ‘Divya Kshetras’, we have restricted it to only 32 Temples, for the sake of presenting in accordance to the auspicious number 32.
- Punya Kshetra
Temples with more than 300 years of history are listed as ‘PunyaKshetra’.
- All other temples come under the title “Well-Known Narasimha Temples”
We also hope that this kind of an initiative will bring to light many obscure unpublished temples still in dilapidated condition, and thus lead towards the restoration of such ancient Kshetras to their rightful glory.
We invite all to actively participate in this blog, by sharing with us about the temples you have visited, the miraculous happenings you have encountered, Shlokas and stories that you know, and all other facts and information regarding Lord sriNrsimha. Your feedback for the improvement of this site is much awaited.
We welcome all to join this divine family and get soaked in the Poorna Anugraha of Sri LakshmiNarasimha Swamy.
