Appearance Day of Lord Nrsimhadeva

Lord Nrsimhadeva
The Amazing Half-Man Half-Lion Incarnation of God

Today is the most auspicious appearance day of Lord Nrsimhadeva, the half-man, half-lion incarnation of Godhead, who appeared for the purpose of protecting His beloved devotee Prahlada Maharaja from being tortured and tormented by his demoniac father Hiranyakasipu. Being a pure devotee of the Lord, Prahlada Maharaja is the genuine well-wisher of all living beings throughout the entire universe. Therefore he prays:

bahir nṛsiṁho hṛdaye nṛsiṁhaḥ

"Let Lord Nrsimhadeva sit in the core of my heart, killing all my bad propensities. Let my mind become clean so that I may peacefully worship the Lord and bring peace to the entire world."

Srila Prabhupada has taught us that we should also pray in this way, both for our own purification and for the deliverance of all living beings. This is the real meaning of being Krishna conscious.
