This is how Bhagavan Vyasa Describes the
manifestation of Krishna the Narasimha in the palace
of Hiranyakashipu when a pillar was shattered by a hit
of the demon..Utterly paranoid about the presence of
Narayana, Hiranyakashipu asks his Son, the child
Prahlada, whether the latter's Hari would be present
in the pillar. And yes, the Lord, ever eager to endorse
the words of His staunch devotee, was present in the
pillar and sprang out in a fierce form which was
neither that of a man nor that of a beast..
"To make true the words of His beloved servant
(Prahlada), and to prove to all that He was manifest
everywhere, in all space, there appeared in the pillar
of the hall of Hiranyakashipu, His form which was at
the same awesome and wonderful, it was neither
human, nor of animal."
Basically, human life is all about keeping one's own
promises. and living up to one's own faith..
And Krishna by this wonderful act, has promised that
He will help His devotee to any extent in keeping such
I love you Krishna
