Narasimha Caturdasi 2017


Lord Narasimha was the fourth Avatar of Lord Mahavishnu, which was taken to kill the demon Hiranyakashipu. The story of Narasimha avatar is connected with the story of Hiranyakashipu and Prahlad. In Vishnu’s Varaha avatar the lord killed Hiranyakashipu’s brother Hiranyaksha. By this action Hiranyakashipu got angry towards Vishnu and decided to kill Mahavishnu. For this he took deep penance to appease Lord Brahma and attain magical powers to defeat Lord Vishnu. 
The Tapas continued for several years and Brahma Dev got satisfied with his great devotion and asked him what boon he need. Hiranyakashipu asked for eternity, but Brahmadev gave him the boon that he can choose his death according to his wish. Thus Hiranyakashipu wants his death to be in the following ways that, he will not be killed by any man or animal, not in air, water or sea, not in the home or outside, not at the day or at night, and not by any asthra or sasthra.
By attaining the boon Hiranyakashipu considered himself as immortal. With his powers he began to ruin the life of people in three worlds. He asked all devotees of Vishnu to worship him instead of the Lord. Those who haven’t obeyed to worship Hiranyakashipu was killed without any mercy. He captured whole world and made every one under his control. He imprisoned Devans and Rishis. 


Everyone was terrified with his mystic powers and went to Lord Vishnu for help. Vishnu gave them the relief that Hiranyakashipu’s son Prahlad will become the cause of his death. So every Gods and Goddesses patiently waited to see how Prahlad will become the cause of the death of Hiranyakashipu. As years passed by Kayadhu, the wife of Hiranyakashipu, gave birth to Prahlad in the Ashrama of Narada Muni. Sage Narada used to tell stories of Lord Narayana to child Prahlada. Hearing the glorious tales he became the devotee of Lord Narayana. Hiranyakashipu who wanted everyone to worship him was greatly disappointed by hearing his own son chanting the names of Maha Vishnu. To change the mind of Prahlad the King sent his son to the Ashramam of Shukracharya’s sons Shaku and Amarka. 

However they were also unsuccessful in breaking the solid devotion of Prahlad. Picture of Prahlad and sage Narada All the efforts of Hiranyakashipu in changing the mind of Prahlad were in vain. At last he got angry with his son and decided to kill him. But each time Hiranyakashipu tries to kill Prahlad Lord Vishnu’s magical hands were there to protect him. The King’s soldiers tried to kill Prahlad by poisoning him, drowning him in water, and throwing him down from mountain. But Lord Vishnu saved him from all these attempts. The King then created a bonfire and asked his sister Holika to sit with Prahlad on her lap inside it. As Holika was immune to fire he thought that his son will be killed. But Prahlada escaped from fire without any harm. 

The angry Hiranyakashipu challenged Prahlad asked where his Narayana can be found. Prahlad replied “My Vishnu is omnipresent and there is not a single place Narayana is not found”. The King was furious and got up from his throne and asked Prahlad “Can you show me your Vishnu in this pillar as well?” Prahlad said “Yes, He is!” The King hit the pillar strongly with his mace. With a thundering sound the pillar cracked and Lord Vishnu appeared in the form of Lord Narasimha – the half man half lion form. The furious Narasimha grabbed Hiranyakasipu, pulled him to his lap and tore open his body with his claws to kill the asura. Lord Narasimha took this way to kill Hiranyakashipu so that Lord Brahma’s boon could not be offended. As Hiranyakashipu’s death wish and Brahma’s boon, Lord Narasimha was neither a man nor an animal, the time was twilight neither day nor night, he sat on the threshold of the room keeping the body of the Rakshas Hiranyakashipu on thighs, used his nails to kill the demon instead of astra or sasthra. After killing the demon Hiranyakashipu Lord Narasimha was furious and was pacified when his devotee Prahlad touched his feet. Prahlad was crowed as the next King by Lord Narasimha.

Abundance Affirmations

Each day is an opportunity to embrace the abundance that the Universe provides. The All is waiting to be seized with your co-operation to manifest dreams and goals. The energy of Abundance is always within your grasp. There is no lack unless you believe there is lack and once you realize this, your money will increase, your abundance will multiply, and you will be in alignment with the flow of Abundance energy. Once in alignment, you can serve others and help them reach their potential too, help them which your infinite value to see and believe and know in their own infinite value.

Today I listened to a very inspiring audio lecture by a wealthy man named Tony Rush called “Making friends with Money”. Tony Rush was in the same situation as most of us, struggling to make money and feeling like he’d never make the type of big money he dreamed of making, until he changed his perspective on money. With his old perspective he was repelling money, by thinking he didn’t deserve it and feeling angry and wrongfully judging people who do have lots of money. He would think, they must be taking advantage of people to have achieved the type of money they have. But when he joined the Empower Network and began to shift his perspective on money, things began to radically change for him. He started to believe he deserved money and tap into the Abundance energy and to believe and know fully his infinite value in this world.

I’ve compiled a small list of affirmations which I got from the lecture as well as some other sources of inspiration too. These affirmations can be used by anyone to re-focus your energy and perspective and come into alignment with the Abundance energy. I hope this helps you!

Affirmations:

– Money is my Friend, my Best Friend!
– It’s 100% ok to get/be Rich!
– I deserve to be Rich!
– Abundance is Free Enterprise (My value and worth is complete Richness, never believe your value is less)
– Make your money as a value and service to people, share the Abundance.
– I am Rich!
– The life you want also wants you!
– Ask, Believe, Receive
– I am Wealthy
– I have a constant flow of money coming to me!
– Money is Energy
– I am the Abundance Magnet

More Affirmations from a Spiritual & Biblical perspective (Yeshua and Yahushua ha Moshiah = Jesus Christ):

– “Who Feels it Knows it” (Bob Marley)
– Wake up in the morning and say the blessings of Jah, it has made me Rich, and there is no sorrow in it.
– My source shall supply all my needs, according to His Riches in Glory by way of Yahushua ha Moshiah.
– “Seek ye first the Kingdom of Jah and His Righteousness and all else shall be added unto you.” (Yeshua)
– “Ask, and it shall be given you, Seek, and ye shall find, Knock, and it will be opened t you.” (Yeshua)
– “the harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few, Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into His harvest.” (Yeshua)
– Build it and they will come

I’m also going to give you a couple videos to inspire you!
The first one is a mantra and visualization which can be used to focus and draw money into your life.

Lakshmi Narasimha Mantra: Eastern Law of attraction to Attract Money (Sankalpa Siddhi)

This next one might seem a little bit of a different vibe then what this post is about but really it fits in very well. I put it here to emphasize the fact that who or what you associate with, you also become. Even Buddha said: “What you think, you become.”

Associate with negative people, you become negative too.
Associate with positive people, you become positive.
Associate with overweight people, you become overweight.
Associate with spiritual people, you become spiritual.
Associate with rich people, you become rich too.
And so on…

So, this video is more for fun then anything, but it could be used as a song/video to get you fired up to the right perspective, a motivational song to direct your focus towards Abundance and associating with others also in alignment with Abundance energy.

Gwen Stefani – Luxurious ft. Slim Thug

I’ve always loved this song by Gwen Stefani!

Regardless, the more you surround yourself with positive and affirming people, places, and things the more you become that, by doing this, you will be making the most important life changing decision you have ever made to changing your reality and receive the wealth and riches you deserve. Come into alignment with the Abundance energy!

HAPPY NARASIMHADEVA APPEARANCE DAY

“Lord Narasimha is here and also there. Wherever I go Lord Narasimha is there. He is in the heart and is outside as well. I surrender to Lord Narasimha, the origin of all things and the supreme refuge.”~Narasimha Purana

Narasimha is the Lion form of God in India. He represents Divine Majesty and Protection.

I always felt a connection to this Lion form of God because of how much I loved the form of Christ as the Lion of Judah.

Listen to Bob Marley singing the song Lion of Judah:
