    About Narsimha

    Narsimha- The Preserver

    Also known as Narsingh and Narasingha, NarsimhaNarsimhaNarsimha
    Also known as Narsingh and Narasingha, Narsimha is believed...
    is believed to be the fourth incarnation of Hindu God, Vishnu. He is visualized in the form of half human and half lion. His lower body was that of a man but his face was of a lion and he also had claws. He took this form to save his devotes from a tyrant and ruthless king named Hiranyakashipu.

    Hiranyakashipu and His Son Prahlada

    Hiranyakashipu inflicted pain and misery by his evil ways of ruling. He wanted to claim the three worlds and to be worshipped as a God. But threatened by the devotion of people towards Lord Vishnu, he decided to kill him. He had to gain immortality to face Lord VishnuVishnuVishnu
    Vishnu is one of the Supreme Gods of Hindus and is a part of Hindu Trinity,..
    for which he started meditating to Lord Bramha. He forgot about his kingdom and prayed for months without any interruption and finally Lord Bramha, impressed by his devotion, woke him up from his meditation.

    Hiranyakashipu, known for his manipulating skills, asked Lord BrahmaBrahmaBrahma
    According to Hinduism, the whole creation is the work of Trimurti (the Hindu Trinity)...
    to keep him away from death. He wished to be killed neither by a man nor by an animal nor by God, neither at day nor night. No weapons could kill him and neither in heavens nor on earth, neither inside nor outside the house, should he be harmed. Lord Brahma even after knowing the evil result of grating this wish, couldn’t say no and over joyed with power and immortality Hiranyakashipu went back to his kingdom. He started his evils ways again and drove Devas from their abode. He tormented humans, sages and Devas alike.

    His ego only came crumbling down after the birth of his son Prahlad, who was a serious devotee of Lord Vishnu and denied to pray to anyone else. Hiranyakashipu tried to kill his son many time by throwing, drowning and poisoning him. He also asked his sister Holika, who was granted a wish to stay unharmed by fire, for help. He set fire an asked Holika to sit inside the fire with Prahlad in her lap. Holika was burnt by her sins but Prahlad remained unharmed.

    Prahlad claimed that Vishnu was everywhere and keeps his devotes safe. Hearing this, Hiranyakashipu got angry and kicked a pillar, from which Lord Vishnu in the avatar of Narsimha emerged. He killed Hiranyakashipu with his claws, in twilight, in his lap thus not going against the boon granted to him.

    Beliefs

    Narsimha is believed to be omniscient. He is everywhere and helps his devotes in the time of needs, even if the situations are impossible to deal with. Prahlad’s devotion symbolizes that it is not your birthright that is important but you are defined by your actions. Even if you are born in an Asura family, through dedication, you can be the true bhakth of God.

    Temples and Prayers

    Lord Narsimha is believed to have 9 forms which can be seen together in Ahovalam in Andra Pradesh. Other famous temples are Sri Hari It is another name of Lord Vishnu.Vaikuntha Ksetra in Bangalore, Sudarsana Temple in Kerela and Sri Ugra Narsimha Temple in Maharashtra.

    The most famous prayers in his name are The Narasimha Maha Mantra A group of sacred words chanted in order to gain something, be it materialistic pleasures or peaceful mindand Narasimha Pranama Prayer and are sung by devotees who believe that Lord Narsimha is everywhere and he is the death of deaths. He is also the origin of everything and in his supreme power, we all find refuge. We surrender to him.
