Narasimha Jayanti Significance and Observations
Narasimha Jayanti is the day when Lord Vishnu exhibited his Narasimha form to the world. He appeared as a lion-man with the face of a lion and body of a man to kill the demon of Hiranyakashipy. Observing this day is said to remove the adharma (path of wickedness) and follow a dharma (path of righteousness). It is the path towards correct deeds without causing harm to anyone.
It is believed that Lord Narasimha appeared in front of everyone during sunset when it was Chaturdashi. So people perform a puja in the evening hours. A visarjan puja is held on the next morning. Devotees observe a fast for a whole day. Narasimha mantra is recited to please God and seek his blessings.
