The fourth and the best incarnation of Lord Vishnu around his ten prime avataras is Lord Narasimha who rose out of a column as Man-Lion, i.e.,lion's head on Man's trunk. He ate up Demon-Lord Hiranyakashyapu who was Master Prahalada's father. At the point when Prahalada was in the womb of his mother, Queen Kayaadu, he had the fortune of listening to Devarishi Naradha in regards to Lord Vishnu's empathy towards his lovers. Thus right from his introduction to the world Prahalada was committed to the name of Lord Vishnu.
Hiranyakashyapu who was a most outstanding opponent of Lord Vishnu and an image of torment to honorable souls, couldn't hold on for his child and began tormenting youthful Prahalada from various perspectives in the wake of attempting through his thugs to exhortation Prahalada that Hiranyakashyapu himself was the prime god and Lord Vishnu stood invalid before Hiranyakashyapu. Junior Prahalada censured such contemplations and adhered to his intelligence that Lord Vishnu was "Purushothama", the incomparable. One day, Hiranyakashyapu shouted at Prahalada and addressed him as to where his Lord Vishnu was available and whether he could spare Prahalada from death at his own particular hands.
To this, Prahalada answered that Lord Vishnu is inescapable. Hiranyakashyapu called attention to at a column in his castle and asked Prahalada whether Vishnu was available in it. Prahalada's answer was confirmed. The Demon utilizing his Gadha(mace) tore open the column and there developed Lord Narasimha who killed the devil utilizing his sharp paws and favored Prahalad as his highest lover on earth.to mark the above occurrence and to pay our admiration to the Lord, Narasimha Jayanthi is praised at a few sanctuaries.
