Unleashing the Power of Narasimha: The Divine Avatar of Lord Vishnu

Narasimha Dev is an incarnation of the Supreme Lord Vishnu or Krishna. He assumed a special form of half-man (Nara) and half-lion (Simha) to protect His five-year-old devotee Prahlad from the ghastly attacks of his demoniac father Hiranyakashipu. He killed the demon to prove that whoever is surrendered to His lotus feet is always taken care of by Him. Lord Narasimha is worshiped in many parts of South India and is considered an important deity in the Vaishnava Sampradaya.

What does Narasimha symbolize?

Although the form of Lord Narasimha appears fierce to the general people, it appears as beautiful and sweet as the lotus flower to His devotees. His ferocious yet transcendental form signifies His rage towards the demoniac persons who try to harm or blaspheme His devotees who are very dear to Him. The devotees always worship and remember Lord Narasimha in their minds because He is the source of all bliss and fortune and is also the cause of all causes. The Vaishnav Acharyas explain that the Lord"s killing of Hiranyakashipu symbolizes the killing of Anarthas such as lust, anger, greed, illusion, attachment, and false ego residing in our hearts. One who has taken the shelter of the lotus feet of Lord Narasimha is at once purified of all contamination which is a barrier in Bhakti.
Image

Which day is for Lord Narasimha?

Since Lord Narasimha is Vishnu Tattva, the Vaishnavas worship Him and observe fasting from grains on Ekadashi which comes on every 11th day in the Hindu or Vedic calendar. On this day, the devotees either completely refrain from eating and drinking anything (Nirjala) or only take grain-free Prasad for satisfying their hunger. They chant the Lord"s holy names, visit temple, and read His pastimes mentioned in the Vedic scriptures. Being completely absorbed in the thoughts of the Lord, the devotees peacefully observe the fast and remain blissful. Another very important day dedicated to Lord Narasimha Dev is “Narasimha Chaturdashi” which comes once a year. It is celebrated as the appearance (His advent on this planet) day of the Lord. On this day, the Vaishnavas congregate in the temples and chant His unending glories and beg for His causeless mercy so that they may eternally be engaged in His devotional service.

Where is Narasimha Swamy statue?

You can find many statues or deities of Lord Narasimha in different states of India such as Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, etc. The most revered place for the Vaishnava community is Ahobilam situated in the state of Andhra Pradesh. This is the holy site where Lord Narasimha chose to appear from a stone pillar indicating that He is present everywhere. The Narasimha Swamy temple in Ahobilam is where all the nine forms of Narasimha Dev are situated; Prahlad Varada Narasimha, Chatravata Narasimha, Yogananda Narasimha, Ugra Narasimha, Kroda Narasimha, Malola Narasimha, Jwala Narasimha, and Pavana Narasimha. Thousands of people from across the globe visit this temple to take the divine blessings of the Lord.
Image
The Vedic scriptures such as Srimad Bhagavatam advise everyone to worship and take the divine shelter of Lord Narasimha dev, the Supreme Lord, in all circumstances, knowing that He is our only hope. Those who do so experience the highest form of bliss and never get bewildered even in adverse conditions of life.

The Divine Beauty: Exploring the Meaning and Symbolism Behind Krishna Statues

Lord Krishna is known by various other names such as Govinda, Gopala, Giridhari, Madanmohan, Radharaman, Maakhanchor, etc. The Vedic scriptures mention Him as the Supreme Lord, the cause of all causes, and the controller of living entities. In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna Himself says that there is no Truth superior to Him and that in all the Vedas, He is to be known. Different people see Him differently. Some people see Him as their son, some as their friend, some as their master, and some as their beloved. He is the source of all pleasure and bliss. There are so many pastimes described in the Vedic literature where it is seen that whoever approached and served Lord Krishna with full faith and devotion, was never bewildered even in the greatest calamities, and was always protected by Him. Lord Krishna is therefore the ocean of mercy.

Lord Krishna expands Himself into different forms to fulfill a particular purpose in the material world. For example, to save His five-year-old devotee Prahlad from the ghastly attacks of his demoniac father Hiranyakashipu, the Lord assumed a special form of half-lion and half-man, Narasimha, and appeared from a stone pillar and killed the demon with His sharp nails. This shows an interesting quality of Lord Krishna. He is very possessive about His devotees. He never tolerates blasphemy against them. Those who try to harm them in any way, the Lord punishes them the hardest way.

Is Krishna statue good at home?

If you want to please Lord Krishna with your service and devotion, keeping the deity of the Lord will be good for you. Wherever there is Krishna, there is opulence, victory, extraordinary power, and morality. Worshiping the deity is one of the easiest ways to build a strong relationship with the Lord. There is no difference between the deity of Krishna and Krishna Himself. The Lord said in the Bhagavad Gita that we can worship Him by offering Him a leaf, a flower, water, or a fruit. If the Lord is pleased, you will feel great satisfaction within your heart and you will experience transcendental bliss. Therefore, keeping the deity of Lord Krishna at home and following the necessary rules and regulations in the deity worship process is highly auspicious.
Image

Which Krishna statue can be kept at home?

There is nothing more sublime than serving the lotus feet of Lord Krishna for it is the very aim of human life. Therefore, you can worship any form of Lord Krishna as your heart desires. You can either keep the deity of the original two-handed form of Krishna playing His flute or the childhood form of Krishna eating butter. You may also keep the deity of Krishna along with Srimati Radharani, His internal potency. If you want to attract the causeless mercy of the Lord and engage in His offenseless service, worshiping the deity of Lord Jagannath, the most merciful form of Lord Krishna would be the best for you. Lord Jagannath does not take offenses of the devotees and only looks at their good qualities and intentions.

The Divine Boar Incarnation: Varaha and His Significance in Hindu Mythology

Varaha Dev is the white Boar incarnation of Lord Shri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Whenever there is a discrepancy in the religious principles followed by the living entities in the material world, the Lord advents and re-establishes religiosity and kills the miscreants. He is the maintainer of the entire universe and comes personally to protect His devotees from great difficulties. The devotees of the Lord always remain engaged in His devotional service and thus experience the highest form of spiritual bliss.
Image

Which demon was killed by Varaha?

The pastime of Lord Varaha killing a demon is elaborately mentioned in the third Canto of Srimad Bhagavatam. There were two demoniac brothers named Hiranyakashipu and Hiranyaksha, the sons of Kashyap Muni. They bore uncommon bodily features and thus flaunted their supremacy everywhere. Their bodies grew just like mountains, touching the sky, and they blocked the view in all directions. The demon Hiranyaksha once upon a time exploited enough gold from the earth, causing it to go out of orbit. The planet then fell into the causal ocean. Seeing this, Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe, was thinking about how to lift the earth from the ocean. He prayed to the Supreme Lord, who then took the form of a small white boar and came out from his nostril. He then grew taller and taller and looked like a gigantic elephant. The Lord dived into the ocean and took the earth on His tusk and lifted it. He then looked at the Hiranyaksha demon with His eyes full of rage and killed him in the water.
Image

What does Varaha symbolize?

The word Varaha is a Sanskrit term that translates into “Boar”. The Acharyas in the path of Bhakti explain that the Supreme Lord took the form of a boar to exhibit His extraordinary potency and to show that out of love and care towards His devotees, He can assume any form to carry out the purpose of relieving them from the danger of demons or non-devotees. The special form of Varaha Dev symbolizes the victory of righteousness over evil. The Lord never fails to reciprocate with His devotees who remain always absorbed in His thoughts.
Image
Although the Supreme Lord Krishna took the form of a boar, it is not to be mistaken as a material form that eventually perishes. The Lord is eternally situated in His spiritual form which is full of bliss and knowledge. When Lord Varaha Dev defeated Hiranyaksha and killed him, He returned to His own abode in the spiritual abode. All the demigods, knowing that no one is equal or greater than the Lord, offered their respectful obeisance to Him and sang His glories.

How to keep a Brass statue well-maintained?


Brass statues are known and appreciated for their exquisite beauty and luster. The brilliant bright gold appearance of Brass makes it appropriate for casting aesthetic statues and sculptures. Brass is a metal alloy composed mainly of copper and zinc. This chemical composition makes brass a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material. Due to these properties, Brass statues and sculptures can be kept both indoors as well as outdoors. They also last for many decades without losing all their natural shine.

 

Brass statues can withstand even harsh weather conditions very well due to their corrosion-resistance properties. However, maintaining the luster and natural beauty of brass statues is essential if you want to prolong their life and appearance.

 

  • The best and simplest way to maintain a brass statue is to clean it at least twice a week using a soft cloth or cotton rag. This will prevent dust from accumulating on the surface. Dusting is especially important for outdoor statues since it is prone to dust accumulation much more than indoors.

 

 

  • To give a natural shine and luster to the statue, you may apply coconut or olive oil using cotton on every portion. You can use a toothbrush to get to the small crevices but do not be too harsh. This will make the brass statue appear fresh and new with a polished look.


  • In case you have a colored brass statue, you may apply mustard oil using a soft brush or clean cloth on the brass portion while for the colored portion of the statue, you may use coconut oil with a cotton cloth. 

 

Brass idols of Hindu Gods and Goddesses are especially known for their intricate and detailed work of art. Nepalese sculptures are famous for small brass idols portraying Buddhist deities. These sculptures are beautified with gold gilding and inlay of precious or semi-precious stones. Religious brass statues can be kept at home altars. You can keep a decorative brass statue in your garden or roof to embellish the area and fill it with divinity.
