STORY BEHIND NARASIMHA AVATAR :
After the death of Hiranyakashyap brother, He considered lord Vishnu as his enemy.
Prahlada, son of Hiranyakashyap, was a devotee of Lord Vishnu.
When Hiranyakashyap got to know about prahlada , he refused to worship Vishnu .
He started arguing, where is your god? Is he in this pillar ?
Suddenly Lord Narasimha , came out from a pillar with half of human face and half of lion face.
He showed his aggression. On this day , Lord Vishnu turned out to be Narasimha to protect his devotee Prahalda .
He killed Hiranyakashyap, the king of demons. So, we celebrate Narasimha Jayanti 2023.
It is also said that, if you worship lord Vishnu on this day, one can get rid of physical and mental problems
