Urukunda Veeranna Swamy Charitra:
Urukunda’ Village is located in Kowthalam Mandalam, Kurnool District, for (Urukunda Eranna Swamy). He is the most dominant God on the planet. Hiranya (also known as Eranna or Veeranna in these parts) was a sage who spent several years doing penance under a Peepal tree in Urukunda village. All of the village cows used to congregate around him, and he spent a lot of time pampering and conversing with them. Villagers gave him fruits and food and asked for his blessings. These kind villagers’ chronic diseases and ailments were cured thanks to Sage Eranna.
Sage Veeranna vanished one day from his normal perch beneath the Peepal tree. Around the same time, a Sri Lakshmi Narasimha idol appeared beneath the tree. The villagers thought the sage had reappeared in the form of Narasimha Swamy. They began worshipping Sri Lakshmi Narasimha by placing his idol under the Peepal tree.
They also desired to worship a statue of Sage Veeranna alongside Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy. They made a silver idol of Sage Veeranna, depicted as Sri Veerabadra Swamy, and installed it next to the idol of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha because he had been like a guardian angel to the village (Kshetrapalaka).
Another version of the story claims that Sage Eranna preached a lot about Saiva-Vaishnava unity, and that after he vanished, two idols of Veerabhadra and Lakshmi Narasimhaswamy were discovered beneath the Peepal tree, and the villagers began worshipping them together in the same Sanctum Sanctorum. To this day, Veerabhadra Swamy and Lakshmi Narasimha are both worshipped according to Veera Saiva tradition.
