Sri Nrusimha Saraswati
The second "Avatar" (incarnation) of Lord Datta in this age of Kali was in the form of Sri Nrusimha Saraswati. To the pious couple, Madhava Sharma and his wife Amba, who lived in a village named Karanja or Laad- karanja in the State of Maharashtra, was born this divine child who amazed every one from the time of his birth, not by crying, but by uttering clearly the "Pranava-Nadam" (the sound of OM). The child named "Narahari", grew upto be a handsome boy of five, but he could not speak. This was a cause of worry to the Parents.One day the young boy conveyed to his mother that he would speak if his "upanayanam" was performed. No sooner than the child was invested with the sacred thread, the divinity in the child swelled out and keeping his promise, he started reciting all the Vedas and immediately sought "Bhiksha" from his mother. He then did "pradakshina" (pacing in a circle thrice around a person(s)/deity etc.) of his Parents and sought their permission to enter the "Sanyasa Ashrama", (i.e. the fourth Stage of religious life).
