Narasimha Jayanti Story

Thousands years back, there lived a Rishi (Sage) called Kashyap in India. He and his wife, Diti had two sons Hiranyaksh and Hiranyakashipu. I

As per legends, Varaha Avatar (Boar) of Lord Vishnu killed Hiranyaksh. Due to this, Hiranyakashipu pledged to avenge the death of his brother. In his intent to defeat Lord Vishnu, he performed Tapasya (Penance) and pleased Lord Brahma to remain unconquerable.  

Misusing this power, he gained control over heaven and began to harass the Gods, Rishis, and Munis (Ascetics). At that time, a baby boy naed Prahlad was born to his wife Kayadhu. Despite being born in the demon family, Prahlad was a staunch devotee of  Vishnu and worshipped him with utmost devotion and love. He continued his reverence for the Lord and enraged by his act, Hiranyakashipu set an intention to kill his own son. 

Hiranyakashipu’s many attacks on Prahlad went in vain due to Lord Vishnu’s grace. Feeling hopeless, he then decided to burn his son and impelled Prahlad to sit in the fire together with his aunt Holika who was blessed to remain harmless in fire.

But, Lord Vishnu’s blessings saved Prahlad while Holika died in the fire. 

Hiranyakashipu then held Prahlad and asked him, “Where is your God?”. 

To his utter shock, Lord Narasimha appeared out of the pillar. As Hiranyakashipu was blessed for not being killed by Devas, either in human or animal form, neither during day or night, Lord Vishnu hence emerged in the body of Narasimha as half-man and half-lion. He laid Hiranyakashipu in his lap and killed him using his sharp nails.
