  • Lord Nrisimha Deva is one of the beloved deities in South India especially around Madras (a place called Sholinganallur) and in Trichy. He is also known as 'Azhagiya Singar' meaning the Beautiful Lion. He is worshipped as Sri Lakshmi Narasimhar, with his consort Lakshmi and in this form He is very calm and gives bountiful mercy and blessings to one and all.
  • Hare Krishna,

    Even demigod Ganesha takes shelter from Lord Narshima and gives the power to remove inauspiciouness for the materialistic people.

    Lord Narshima is same as Lord Krishna.

    Wonderful pastime of Narasimha Deva -(submitted by HG Shyam gopal prabhu)

    Now allow me to tell a true story that happened some 10 years ago in
    South-Africa. The father and the daughter who experienced this event told
    this story to my friend, a sannyasi and devotee of Lord Nrisimhadev.
    This stories was also found in the newspapers, and several witnesses of this
    truck-accident after this incident became devotees of Lord Nrisimhadev.
    This happened to a simple Vaishnav family that lives there. They had a back
    then 5 years old daughter. This girl was a great `fan' of Nrisimhadev âa"
    she found Him simply funny, as he looked half lion half man and felt very
    attracted to Him. She often told her playmates about her favorite God, a
    lion and the kids always wondered about what of God this could be a lion.

    What can a five years old girl know about God, she wasn't initiated, not
    even her parents, as far as I can remember. The father of the family
    followed a guru and surely later accepted initiation. But there was a small
    Hindu-community they were in close touch with.

    So, one day the girl was playing outside with her ball together with other
    kids, beside the street. The ball, how else could it be, fell on the street,
    and the girl ran after her precious ball. There was nearly no traffic, a
    rarely used country road. But this time a very fast truck came running down
    the road. The girl in her play didn't see the truck coming.

    The father was in the first floor of the house and saw his baby girl running
    on the street âa" but he also saw the huge truck coming down, closer to his
    daughter with huge speed. The father yelled at her, but she didn't hear him.
    So he jumped out of the window of this first floor to save his daughter, and
    broke both his legs, when coming down, and remained laying on the ground in

    He had to watch how his little girl was hit by the truck and thrown through
    the air, some 20meter away. All children and neighbors around who observed
    this froze the blood. The father later said his only desire when he saw this
    was to die.

    From the other direction came a police car that also witnessed the accident.
    The truck went on and the policeman stopped his car across the street to
    stop him. The truck-driver hardly stopped his truck and he seemed to be very
    drunk.The policeman immediately called the ambulance and ran over to the
    motionless laying girl in the grass.The closest hospital was a small private
    clinic and the ambulance came, but refused to take the girl, being afraid
    they wouldn't have the necessary devices and machines to help the injuries
    the girl must have. They advised the policeman to call the main hospital, as
    only they could efficiently help her, as her spine must be broken, etc.
    The policeman was in despair, not even knowing where the father of the girl
    was. Actually he didn't even know if the girl was still alive, as he didn't
    dare to touch her, not knowing how injured she was. However, in the end she
    was brought to a right hospital, the policeman accompanied the girl, and
    also finally the father there.

    The chief-doctor heard then what has happened to the girl, and they
    immediately x-rayed her to see first results. The policeman wanted to rest
    assured how the girl was doing, and waited there to see the results.
    Everybody was shocked to hear what terrific accident had happened to the

    So the nurse brought the x-ray pictures to the doctor, who became very upset
    and started yelling at the nurse she should for-God's-sake bring the right
    pictures, things were about death and life. He threatened to fire her, as it
    was unacceptable to make such mistakes. The nurse was scared and didn't
    understand what was happening. Those were the pictures of the five year old
    girl that was hit by the truck. The nurse wasn't aware yet of what had
    happened to the girl.The doc said this cannot be on the x-ray there was not
    a single broken bone. So, the doc all the time again and again repeated
    impossible it can't be'.

    Then suddenly the girl awoke from her faint and then told a story at ful
    consciousness which made its tour through the media.

    In the moment she picked up the ball from the street, she saw the truck
    coming up to her. And the only thing she could do was to yell out for help.
    She didn't call for mommy or daddy, but for her Nrisimhadev. In this moment
    when the truck should hit her, she suddenly saw how Nrisimhadev picked her
    up from the ground, smiled at her, and said, `don't be afraid, nothing will
    happen to you'. The girl continued her story that the Lord had put her on
    the other side of the street into the grass. But when putting her down, He
    accidentally scratched her waist, which still hurt her a bit.

    She spoke about how beautiful Nrisimhadev was, His hair, His eyes, etc. But
    his claws were very sharp, He should cut themâaN he wore a golden dhotie,
    etc. The doctor didn't understand anything and told the policeman she still
    was in shock and hallucinated, which is normal.

    So, the girl was profoundly checked for any injuries, but the only injury
    they found on her body were those scratches and the doctor said this must be
    from a wild animal like a lion, as he had cases like this before. So, he was
    disturbed and asked if they had brought the girl to hospital as this one was
    inured by a wild animal, not a truckâaN Nobody was clear what had happened.
    The same doctor and the nurse who took care of her later became devotees, as
    they later learned from the parent who `that lion' was.

    As we can see miracle still today happen. Not only in Mahabharata, Puranas
    or shastras that are more than thousands of years old. The little girl was
    very attracted to this form of God, and in her despair she called Him for
    help. Lord Nrisimhadev did not look if she was initiated and have the right
    to call His name He protects His devotees, that sincerely worship Him in
    their hearts.

    I am sure this litte girl was no common soul, who knows what she did in her
    previous life. The sannyasi heard that she very much liked to eat sweets,
    and prepared a big plate ful of sweets for her to rest assured she will not
    be able to eat it all up. He gave her the mounted plate of sweets, she took
    some of the sweets and ran out playing with her friends.

    As soon as she was gone of the room, the sannyasi went over that plate and
    took the rest, as for him, this was the best maha-prasad available! Who last
    time has met Lord Nrisimhadev? Narada Muni maybe?? The girl for sure, and
    she must be a great soul.

    Jai Narsimhadev!
    Hari bol

    • what a beautiful pastime of lord nirshamadev , actually he protects all the devotees in all circimstances but we

      dont recognize it , and when we are saved from any calamities in life we think it is coincidence or luck, but no

      it is lord nirshamadev who always is behind like a shield. In my life I have been protected manytimes by him ofcourse i have not seen him perssonaly  with these mundane eyes but i have felt his presence in many aspects

      of my life, 

      That is why we all devotees sing the nirshamdev prayers daily , one can also read the nirhshama kavaca, which is very auspicous


      haribol , jai jai laxmi nirshama , jai prahlada maharaj

Generally people says that we should not keep ugra narshimha in our home. but narshimha deva is so loving and caring, no matter in whihc rupa you keep, he always have soft heart for his devotees. He is ugra for demons for devotees he is namra. wo to bahut pyare hai.
    • Yes, You must asap bring Narsimha deva to altar.
