Sri Narasimha Jayanthi 2019 Date - 17 May 2019

Sri Narasimha Jayanthi is celebrated on 17 May 2019 (Friday). Sri Narasimhar is an Avatar of Lord Vishnu. Sri Narasimhar took avatar on Vaishakha Shukla Chaturdashi.

Sri Narasimhar appeared from broken pillar with half lion body and half human body to kill Hiranyakashipu and save his devotee Prahalada.

Sringeri Jagadguru Shankaracharaya in his Anugraha Bhashanam said Lord Narasimha took avatar for two reasons. One is to show he is present everywhere and second is to make true his devotee Prahalada's assertion that God is there in the Pillar too.

In Sringeri Jagadguru Shankaracharaya will perform special puja to Lord Narasimha in the afternoon. Vedic chants comprising of Narayana Sukta, Purusha Sukta and Vishnu Sukta will fill the air. Jagadguru Shankaracharaya will read portions of Bhagavatam in praise of Lord Narasimha
