Lord Vishnu has taken many forms for the good of his devotees and welfare of the world. Among all the avatars of Lord Vishnu, the form of Lord Narasimha is perhaps the most ferocious one.
Lord Narasimha is fourth avatar of Lord Vishnu. This avatar was taken to destroy the demon King Hiranyakashipu and rescue his devotee Prahalada. Hiranyakashipu was King of Asuras and loathed the Devas. He considered Lord Vishnu to be his greatest enemy, as Lord helped Devas against the tyranny of the Asuras.
To be able to defeat Lord Vishnu, he performed a penance to please Lord Brahma and received a boon. The boon said that the demon couldn't be killed by humans or animals, in the sky or on the ground, by astras or shastras, not in a building or in the open. With this boon, he considered himself an immortal and started terrorizing humans and Devas.
He faced the greatest opposition from his own son, Prahalad. Prahalad was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu. Hiranyakashipu tried first to change his son's ways and on failure, he tried to kill him. All of it went in vain.
Prahalada claimed that his Lord was present everywhere, Hiranyakashyapu challenged him asking if he was present in the pillar of his palace. He took his Gada and smashed the pillar to prove the Lord's absence. But from the smashed pillar, Lord Narasimha jumped forth. Lord Narasimha proceeded to kill Hiranyakashayapu at dusk, on the entrance of the palace, placed on his lap with his own sharp nails.
Lord Narasimha drank Hiranyakashyapu's blood and wore the intestines as a garland. It was only after Prahalada came forward that the Lord calmed down. ✨🦁Narasimha Gayatri Mantra 🦁✨ “Om Narasimha vidmahe vajranakhaya dhimahi tanno simhah prachodayat"
