Description

The Lord shows His more powerful form and this Ugra (ferocious) form to kill the anger, pride, egoism inside of us, showing that He is above all this.

Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda

Experience the furious form of Lord Narayana as we venerate Lord Narasimha!

On this day, we will celebrate the appearance of Lord Narasimha as He bursted forth from a pillar to protect His devotee, Prahlad.

Despite being born as a demon, Prahlad was a bhakta with great piety who had been intitated into the Divine Name of Narayana by Sage Narada - even before he was born! It was because of this devotion (bhakti) that his demon-king father, Hiranyakashipu, had tried numerous ways to end his life. The culmination of these attempts came when Hiranyakashipu struck a pillar, testing the omnipotence of Lord Narayana. At that moment, Lord Narasimha manifested to protect Prahlad and soon the Lord ended the tyranny of Hiranyakashipu.

Place

Bhakti Marga has its headquarters at Shree Peetha Nilaya, meaning ‘Abode of the Maha Lakshmi’, the Divine Mother. It is located in the beautiful German countryside near Wiesbaden. Residents and guests come together every day to participate in special events, prayers, meditation, singing, seva, and to share their love of the Divine with one another.

Shree Peetha Nilaya - Bhakti Marga

In ancient times, yogis would receive Divine Inspiration through the connection to God in Nature. Shree Peetha Nilaya is such a place.
