Narasimha Chaturdashi (also called ‘Narasimha Jayanti’) is the Appearance Day of Lord Nrsingadev, the most merciful protector of His devotees. Although He appears ferocious in His ugra form, He is actually the sweetest of all to those who are surrendered to Him. Nrsingadev restores balance, eliminates all darkness and cleanses and purifies the mind of negativity. The world needs His energy, His grace and His power.
Lord Narasimha is the half-man/half-lion Avatar of the Supreme Lord, Narayana. Out of love for His devotee, He manifested Himself out of a stone pillar to protect four-year-old Prahalad from his demon king father, Hiranyakashipu. Although His manifestation only lasted only six hours, He took on nine different aspects. You can see them all in the Bhutabhrteshwarnath Mandir.
“The Lord shows His more powerful form and this ugra (ferocious) form to kill the anger, pride, egoism inside of us, showing that He is above all this.” – Paramahamsa Vishwananda.
