NRSIMHA CHATURDASI

Appearance Anniversary of Lord Nrsimhadeva
May 25, 2020

Lord Nrsimhadeva (Nara meaning “man,” simha meaning “lion,” and deva meaning “god”) assumed the form of a half-man half-lion to protect His devotee Prahlada Maharaja. Prahlada’s father was an evil king who wreaked havoc in the world and was inimical to God and His devotees. Prahlada, however, was a devoted believer of God, which enraged his father to the point of his trying to kill his own son. Lord Nrsimha appeared from a pillar to protect Prahlada from the wrath of his father. The Lord was so pleased with Prahlada’s devotion and faith that He manifested in this unusual form to reciprocate with his love. On Nrsimha Chaturdasi we seek the blessings and divine protection of this unique incarnation of God.
