Nrisimha Chaturdasi Sevas


Lord Nrsimha roars loudly and causes others to roar. With His multitudes of arms, He tears the demons asunder and kills them in this way. He is always seeking out and tormenting the demoniac descendants of Diti, both on this earth planet and in the higher planets, and He throws them down and scatters them. He cries with great anger as He destroys the demons in all directions, yet with His unlimited hands He sustains, protects, and nourishes the cosmic manifestation. I offer my respectful obeisances to the Lord, who has assumed the form of a transcendental lion.”

“By meditating upon He whose form is fearsome, all peace, happiness and prosperity can be obtained, all sins can be obliterated, the fear arising from evil spirits, fevers and unfavourable planetary positions can be removed, O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.”

In the Bhagavad-gita, Lord Krishna explains the vision of a great devotee like Prahlada: “For one who sees Me everywhere and sees everything in Me, I am never lost to him, and he is never lost to Me.” Lord Krishna, Krsna is the protector of those who has adjusted their consciousness to that of being protected by Him. And when the same Lord comes as Narasimha, He is coming to fulfill His promise to His devotee who fully seek His protection.

It’s that time of the year again! Our savior, protector, and well-wisher is coming! ISKCON Mayapur warmly invites devotees, guests, and well-wishers from around the world to join us in celebrating the auspicious appearance day of Lord Narasimhadeva during the Sri Narasimha Caturdasi Festival 2024.

"I offer my respectful obeisances unto Lord Nrisimhadeva, the source of all power. O my Lord who possesses nails and teeth just like thunderbolts, kindly vanquish our demon-like desires for fruitive activity in this material world. Please appear in our hearts and drive away our ignorance so that by Your mercy we may become fearless in the struggle for existence in this material world." (Srimad-Bhagavatam, 5.18.8)
