Story of Narasimha
Narasimha is the fourth avatar of Lord Vishnu. Hiranyakashipu was deeply hurt by his younger brother’s death. He wants to teach a lesson to the Gods. So he performed a sever Tapa. Lord Brahma appeared in front of him and asked for a boon. Hiranyakashipu told him that he must remain immortal. So he asked a boon of immortality to Lord Brahma. But God said “It is not possible to give such boon, please ask another.” He thought in his mind that God is not so clever so I can get the same boon by only changing the words. So he asked the God his boon in such a way that he never die.
The demon returned to his evil ways and instead of God he declared himself to be God. He threatens all people, rhishis-munis, even God also if they pray Lord Vishnu. He put ban on the chanting the name and pray of Lord Vishnu. Because of his threat all accepted this, but his own son Prahlad refused this.
Hiranyakashipu threatened Prahlad in different ways. But he survived all those dangers by chanting the name of Lord Vishnu.
From this we learnt that in difficult and dangerous situations we must remember God, and we must have faith in God. God always help his devotee in different ways.
At last Hiranyakashipu asked the Prahlad “Where is your God?” “God is everywhere.”Prahlad replied.  Hiranyakashipu asked him again “Is he in this pillar?” Prahlad said “Yes, he is.” The demon breaks the pillar and from it emerged Lord Vishnu in the form of Narasimha. By fulfilling all conditions of his boon, Narasimha killed Hiranyakashipu on his lap by his nail and save his devotee Prahlad.
From this we take lesson that God is everywhere, in living things as well as non-living things. God is the most perfect. He is the supreme. He is the Parmeshwar. It is not possible for anyone to play game of words with the God because God is the Supreme and he knows how to handle demons and his devotees.
From this avatar of Lord Vishnu, I kept in mind that God is everywhere. That’s why I try to find God in my parents, relatives, friends, animals, trees and in environment. Giving respect to all and taking care of them I praise the God. I must not cheat anybody because I know that cheating that person means cheating the God. I must faith in God and always remember that God always help me if I will be in any trouble or in danger. I keep my mind calm, quiet in such situation and must find out a solution on that with the help of God’s worship.
