Narasimha Caturdasi Celebration, May 14 th

Hare Krishna Temple invites you to join us on the joyous occasion of celebrating the Appearance day of Lord Narasimhadeva – Sri Narasimha Caturdasi (Actual Day 9th May), on Sunday May 14th 2017 at 4pm.

Sri Narasimha Jayanti is the appearance day of Lord Narasimha, the half-lion/half-man incarnation of Supreme Lord Krishna, who appeared to protect Sri-Prahlada from his demoniac father Hiranyakashipu.

Hiranyakashipu received a special benediction from Lord Brahma that he could not be killed by any human being, demigod or animal or any other entities; he could not be killed by any kind of weapons, neither during day nor night. So, the Lord appeared from a pillar, in a half-man/half-lion form and killed Hiranyakashipu with His nails at twilight, thus satisfying all the conditions.

Unmatched and Supreme, He is present on earth, heaven and everywhere.

Sri Narasimha Bhagawan ki Jai !!!
