Dear Sri Prasannakannan,

I was blessed to visit this kshEthram called ma~ngaLagiri" (near GuntUr- in 
Andhra), at the age of 14. What I still can recollect and remember (at 40) 
is:

The Divya mangaL vigraham of Sri PAnaka Nrusimhan accepts pAnakam offered in 
any container of any size, and he consumes half of the quantity offered by 
devotees. Then it overflows from His "large" mouth..

Since it spills on the ground, the floor was sticky (due to sweet pAnakam); 
but there was not a single fly or an ant in the hill. ANother divine 
marvel..

Regards
Narayana Narayana

Hi everyone,
            I am really curious about the mangalagiri
temple.From reading the articles on the web i found
that the offering of Panaka is made  by pouring the
offering into the mouth of the Lord with a Sankha or a
conch and only half of the quantity is accepted by the
Lord while the rest is left to the devotee as prasada

  I would like to know which of thes statements is
right

1) only half of every conch full of panaka is accepted
..
2) the panaka offering starts to overflow only when
the total quantity of panaka is halved.

Thank you in advance for answering my question

Prasanna
