What is the Importance of Narasimha Jayanti?

Narasimha Jayanti is a festival to celebrate the strong relationship between the devotee and the Lord. Prahlad was an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu. He used to pray Lord day in and day out, which was not liked by his father, King Hiranyakashipu. When the tyranny of King Hiranyakashipu on his devotee Prahlad reached its peak, then the Lord became angry and in this anger, he assumed his fiery incarnation. Even in anger, Lord Vishnu didn’t lose control of himself. He attacked only the enemies and not the innocent humans.

This incarnation teaches us that even when we are angry, we should not give up our conscience. We must have compassion for mankind. Narasimha Jayanti is also a festival symbolizing the victory of good over evil. By celebrating Narasimha Jayanti 2023, we should take a pledge to keep ourselves motivated in our devotion to God and stay away from evils.

Know the Story of Lord Narasimha on Narasimha Jayanti 2023

In ancient times, there were two demons Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu. Once Hiranyaksha hid the earth in the sea, therefore, Lord Vishnu took the incarnation of Varaha to take out the earth and kill Hiranyaksha. Hiranyakashipu was filled with anger towards Lord Vishnu to avenge his brother’s murder. He did hard penance and took a boon from Brahmaji that neither any arm nor any weapon, neither day nor night, neither man nor animal, neither deities nor demons could kill him.

He misused this boon and started torturing people. His wife Kayadhu gave birth to a son whose name was Prahlad. Prahlad became a great devotee of Lord Vishnu. Hiranyakashipu did not like this and made various efforts to kill Prahlad. In the end, Lord Vishnu killed Hiranyakashipu by taking Narasimha’s avatar from a pillar. The devotees observing a fast on Narasimha Jayanti 2023 should definitely read the Vrat Katha since it’s considered very beneficial.
