Ahobalam in South India as the actual place of Lord Nrisimhadeva's pastimes
As we walked in the same forest again this morning, Yasodanandana Swami, who returned from the South yesterday, asked Prabhupada to confirm Ahobalam in South India as the actual place of Lord Nrisimhadeva's pastimes. He had taken photos that he wanted to publish in Back To Godhead. However, Jayadvaita and others doubted the claim. Prabhupada said if there is some controversy, it should be avoided. "You know the taka-taliya-nyaya? There was a tree, tal tree. So one crow was there, and the tal fruit fell down. Two panditas, they began to argue, 'Because the crow sat down on it, therefore the tal fruit fell down.' The other said, 'No, the tal fruit was falling down, and the crow could not sit on it.' And they began to fight: 'No, this.' 'No this.' 'No this,' and so on."
He said that the main point is that Lord Nrisimha is our worshipful Deity, no matter where He is. Then he quoted from the Brahma-samhita. He is situated everywhere, why just this place or that place? He then noted that Yasodanandana Maharaja was barefoot in the forest. Yasodanandana shrugged it off, saying it was all right. But Prabhupada got a little annoyed with him. He said it was not all right. It was a risk in the forest. Then he told him to go sit down. Then, out of consideration for his disciple, he said we should walk on the road.
