Welcome and glory to Lord Narasimha!

Jai Sri Bhakti Lakshmi Narsingh Dev!

Jai Guru Dev. This new blog is designed to showcase the glories of Narasimha Dev and His many forms. Here you will find timely stories of experiences from devotees with Lord Narasimha as well as many pictures and videos of different temples and murthis around the world of the Lord.

Narasimha (Sanskrit: नरसिंह, Narasiṃha) or Nrsimha (नृसिंह, Nṛsiṃha), also spelt as Narasingh and Narasingha, whose name literally translates from Sanskrit as "Man-lion", is an avatar of Vishnu described in the Puranas, Upanishads and other ancient religious texts of Hinduism and one of Hinduism's most popular deities, as evidenced in early epics, iconography, and temple and festival worship for over a millennium.
He is often visualized as half-man/half-lion, having a human-like torso and lower body, with a lion-like face and claws. This image is widely worshiped in deity form by a significant number of Vaishnava groups. He is known primarily as the 'Great Protector' who specifically defends and protects his devotees in times of need.
