WHich of the following comes to mind when we think of Lord Narasimha
(1) Narasimha is a scary form (2) Removes obstacles of devotees that deter them from following the right path in life (3) That Lord is everywhere. (4) The Lord comes to help his devotees anytime.
And (2, 3, 4)
Lord Narasimha is not to be feared but hes the one who helps in removing obstacles of devotees that deter them following the right path in life. This avatara also shows that Lord is everywhere and comes to help his devotees anytime.
Parasara Bhattar swami says that Narasimha was so beautiful that if one looks at him, even the most beautiful human being will look ugly compared to him – the most beautiful lion will look ugly compared to him. His beauty combining half lion and half man was the most beautiful being! Narasimha avatara, though considered a fearful avatara, is actually the most kind avatara from the perspective of his devotees. He did all this because he wanted to help his devotee Prahlada. One should not be afraid of Narasimha. In fact, Narasimha is the form of the Lord that is the most kind ,removing the obstacles of His devotees to help lead the right life thinking about him.
