Pilgrimage to Ahobilam — Touring the Temples of Lord Nrsimhadeva in South India with Dhruva — HD

Dhruva is a devotee born in ISKCON and educated at the Mayapur Gurukul. During his youth he was exposed to and engaged in the worship of the Nrsimhadeva deity in Mayapur and he developed a strong attachment to the Lord in this form.

Lord Nrsimhadeva is a very angry form of the Lord. He appeared as a half-man, half-lion when a demonic king, Hiranyakasipu, was just about to kill his devotee son Prahlada Maharaja. Lord Krishna appears whenever there is a need to protect His devotees and to kill the demons.

Actually the Lord appears more to protect His devotees than for killing the demos.

For killing the demons actually He does not need to appear. But when His devotees are in danger, then the Lord appears immediately to protect His devotees and to kill the demons who are harassing His devotees.

Anyhow, in this very amazing film produced by ITV, we are guided by a young Dhruva to many of the ancient temples of Lord Nrsimhadeva. It is a very wonderful film, now for the first time presented in high definition 1080p video.

About the Author

My first contact with a Hare Krishna was a most merciful Mataji in Oxford Street, London who sold me a "Higher Taste" cook book in 1984 while I was on holidays there. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia 1985 and by 1986 Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna." I joined the Hare Krishnas in Perth, Western Australia in 1986. Since then I have been chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and preaching as much as I can. That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before. Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing... Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental! That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence. Let the whole world drown in the ecstatic flood of love of Krishna!
