  • combined with Sugam and Asana. Sukam means pleasure and Ashana means the place of comfort.Asana is involved for, firm and right status of sitting. To be steady and to have positive improvementthe devotees have to pray the Lord with the ‘Manthra’ given above.Lord Shiva and Lord Maha Vishnu Happened to meet each other in their avatars and incornatins.In one of the event, Hiranya Kasibu a notable demon King secured several boons from Lord Brahma.Lord Brahma was the creator of the worlds stars and universe. All kinds of living beings were alsocreated by him. For living, one should eat food. For that purpose, the duty went to the hands of LordMaha Vishnu. If all the living beings happen to stay permanently, then there could be no space andonly the births would be filling up to cover the world. So, the destruction of all the beings were alsoneeded. Lord Shiva accepted that job. Therefore, the creator and the accommodator and destructorwere the three charges under taken by Lords Brahma Maha Vishnu and Shiva respectively.Lord Brahma gave the boons to Hiranya Kasibu as he asked. Boon related to his life and age.His opinion was to live forever with out death and that he preferred that no one could put an end to hislife, either by man or by Divine. He specified that neither in daytime nor at nighttime should the deathoccur to him. The condition was further claimed that it should not be through animal, birds or reptiles.In both earth and heaven, the death should not reach him. He had composed for himself all themeasures in the boon and wanted to live as a sole authority for all the worlds including Divine Land.He had restricted every one worshipping Lord Shiva and Lord MahaVishnu. He inducted hisname ‘Hiranya’ in the manthras and prayers. Instead “Om Namo Narayana” the prayer for Lord MahaVishnu, he compelled to worship as “Om Namo Hiranyaya Nama”. His atrocious actions wereboundless and no one lived with happiness. Lord Maha Vishnu was requested by the Divines andsages to put an end to this arrogant giant. Lord Maha Vishnu promised them to do the essentialremedies. As per the proceedings, ‘Prahalad’ a male child born to “Hiranya Kasibu”. From thebeginning, that child behaved as devotee to Lord Maha Vishnu. When the boy grew, he was sent to theGurukulam, the residing school for studies. The teacher began to teach him the manthra “OmHiranyaya Namaha”.
  • However, the boy boldly expressed the manthra of Sri Narayana as “Om Namo Narayana”. Theadament nature of the boy was brought to the knowledge of king ‘Hiranya Kasibu’. He punished theboy, by sending the ‘Elephant’ to crush him at the soils of ground. However, the animal did no harm tohim and returned. The Boy was brought inside the palace. King Hiranya asked the Boy “Who isNarayan and where is he?” The Boy told to his father that “The Lord dwells in the pillar of palace aswell in every dust surrounded”.Hiranya got angry and went near the pillar and gave a forceful kick upon the pillar. As a strangeand miraculous appearance, a big body of a lion with the legs of a human came out ferociously fromthe pillar. It was not day or night. It was evening. The hands were four in number, the flying wheel ofMaha Vishnu (Sudharshan) and the conch “Pancha Janya” were in the upper hands and the body wasstreaking ahead to the sky. It was not earth or heaven. In the mid place, the lion faced strange beinglifted the king Hiranya. The stomach of Hiranya was torn and the blood was streaming down in hugequantity. The anger of the lion was not over even after killing Hiranya Kasibu. As per boon the deathwas not through animal or reptile. It was partially a lion with other part as man. Time was not the dayor night. It was evening. Therefore, the ferocious manner of lion Faced “Narsimha moorthy” could notinterfered by any one. The temper and mood in the victorious from “Narasimha Moorthy” startedroaring and the sound spread over the world to face the stage of destruction. In order to save the worldfrom danger Lord Shiva, wanted to divert the attention of Narasinga Moorthy and bring down to theobservation of normalcy. “Narasimha” means, ‘Nara’ denotes the human and simha denotes animal.Simha means lion. So, it was a combined avathar of man and animal. Lord Shiva turned as a bird withhorrible beak, extended the shape to the hight of the sky, and stood before “Narasimha”. For amoment, the lion faced Narasimha astonished to look a very big bird with terrifying nature. Of coursethere took place no quarrel, but, Lord Maha Vishnu in the from of “Narasimha Moorthy” came downto the normalcy and attained to the atmosphere of piece. This is what needed at that juncture. Thekilling of the demon king was over and the Lord Narasimha Moorthi and Sarabeswara (Lord Shiva inthe form of Bird) blessed the human beings and the divines. Prahalatha the son of the Demon king fellat the feet of both Lords Maha Vishnu and Lord Shiva and got their blessings.In the world if any one is fearful to oppose a big person for a noble cause, the prayer to SriSarabeswara will be helpful. The proper way and plan will be blessed to the devotee who can claim for
