One mantra dedicated to Lakshmi Narsimha says: “Oh Great God Lakshmi Nrsimha, Who lives in the ocean of milk, Who holds the holy wheel as weapon, Who wears the gems of the head, Of Adhisesha as ornaments, Who has the form of good and holy deeds, Who is the permanent protection of sages, And who is the boat which helps us cross, This ocean of misery called life, Please give me the protection of your hands.”
Hiranyakashipu went to the mountain Mandara and began the severe order of penance and could successfully invoke Lord Brahma from whom he received a boon that he could be killed neither by any creature created by Brahma; either in the house nor outside it; neither either during the daytime nor at night; no weapon could cause his death and he should not die either on land or in the sky. Armed with such a boon, the demon crossed all limits and wrought havoc on heaven and earth. He even dethroned Indra, the king of heavens. Hiranyakashipu's son Prahalad was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu right from his very childhood. Prahalad had not pay any attention to the orders of his father not to worship Vishnu. Hiranyakashipu is father tried to kill his son in a fit of anger. But all his attempts were foiled by Prahlad's saviour Lord Vishnu.
At last Hiranyakashipu thundered at Prahlad and asked him who was his protector? Prahalad replied: "It was Hari who gave me this courage. He is stronger than anyone else. You and I, the universe, even Brahma are nothing before his strength. He is the real Lord of the Universe.”
He shouted in rage: “Show me where is he” Prahlad replied: “He is everywhere.” The king could no longer control his anger. He hit a pillar with his mace. “Is he here?” He asked Prahlad. He drew out his sword and pounced upon the little boy. A terrible deafening sound came and as the stunned men watched, the pillar split into two and was born the Sri Hari, in the form of Narasimha with a head of a lion and the body of a man. (Nara = Man: Simham = Lion).
He ultimately killed Hiranyakashipu and saved the world.
