Re: calrification on ugra narasimhar

Dear Sri.Sridhar:


Your question is very valid, in the context that Lord Narayana 
played the role in both the Avatars. I can answer your question 
from the limited knowledge I have. It is the Avatara Rahasyam 
that plays role in the activities you have mentioned. While 
incarnating as Lord Narasimha, He was with in his limits of 
incarnation, and that might have been the reason why the 
activity that you have mentioned would not have been advocated 
by the Lord in Narasimha avatar. In this context, we also 
should not forget that He never falls short in his qualities 
whichever Avatar He takes. Avatar as Lord Rama was in Human 
form in which an ordinary Human Being could comprehend with 
acvities after killing, like last rights. 

The above explanation is bound to my very limited knowledge.


Sri Ramanuja Dasan,
