🦁Narasimha Jayanti - नृसिंह जयंती

Narasimha Jayanti Date: Thursday, 4 May 2023
Narasimha Jayanti

On the day of Narsingh Chaturdashi, Bhagwan Vishnu appeared in half-lion and half-human form to protect his devotee Prahlad, this form of Bhagwan was called Narsingh. The rules, guidelines and procedures of Vaishakh Shukla Chaturdashi festival i.e. Narasimha Jayanti Vrat (fast) are similar to the Ekadashi Vrat of Srihari.

A day before Narasimha Jayanti, devotees consume only one Prahar Bhojan (meal). All types of grains are prohibited during the fast of Narasimha Jayanti. Therefore, it is advisable to do puja at night and end the vrat only after doing visarjan (immersion) puja and dan-dakshina in the morning the next day.

Special worship of Bhagwan Narsingh should be done in the (Sandhya) evening. That is, before the end of the day and before the night begins, according to the Puranas, Bhagwan Narasimha appeared in this period.

Sandalwood is offered and anointed (Abhishek) exclusively in the worship of Bhagwan Narasimha. Narsingh is an incarnation of the form of the god of Bhagwan Vishnu. So sandalwood is offered to calm their anger. Which gives coolness. Abhishek done with milk, panchamrit and water is also done to pacify this raudra form.
