Watch Amma’s New Video Message explaining the significance and details on how to observe this appearance day of Lord Narasimha
Sri Narasimha Jayanthi is the appearance day of Lord Narasimha, the half-lion half-man incarnation of Sri Lord Vishnu, who appeared to protect Prahlaada from his demonic father Hiranyakashipu.
Hiranyakashipu received a special benediction from Lord Brahma that he could not be killed by any human being, demigod, or animal or any other entities; he could not be killed by any kind of weapons, neither during day nor night. So, the Lord appeared in half-man half-lion form and killed him with His nails at twilight, thus satisfying all the conditions.
Lord Narasimha appeared at dusk on the Shukla Chaturdashi (fourteenth day of the bright fortnight) in the month of Vaishakha (May).
