History: The object of Narasimha incarnation of Lord Sri Mahavishnu was to destroy the Demon Hiranya. The demon had such a boon that he could not be killed by any power, anytime, any weapon etc. Using the loopholes in his boon, Lord Vishnu took the Narasimha form (human body with a lion’s face) and destroyed him.
