Swathi – Sri Narashima Murthy
Narasingha and Narasinghar in Dravidian languages is an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu, who is regarded as the supreme God in Vaishnavism and a popular god in the broader Hinduism. The avatar of Narasingha is evidenced in early epics, iconography, and temple and festival worship for over a millennium. Narasingha is often visualised as having a human torso and lower body, with a lion face and claws. This image is widely worshipped in god form by a significant number of Vaisnavaa groups. Vishnu assumed this form on top of Himvat mountain (Harivamsa). He is also primarily known as the ‘Great Protector’ who specifically defends and protects his devotees in times of need. Vishnu is believed that he has taken the avatar to destroy the demon king Hiranyakashipu.
