Lord Narasimha and Prahlada Plush Dolls
A fundamental belief in Hinduism is that God descends to earth to take birth as human or other forms whenever the good and piety suffer and the evil ones have an upper hand. God protects the good, destroys the evil and restores Dharma (righteousness). Such a person is known as an Avatar.
In Hinduism, Lord Vishnu is the “God who protects”. He is attributed with taking 10 such avatars. They are Matsya, Varaha, Koorma, Vamana, Narasimha, Rama, Parasurama, Krishna, Balarama and Kalki.
Narasimha is the fourth avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu . He is regarded to have incarnated in the form of a part-lion, part-man being to slay Hiranyakasipu, a demon (asura) king to end religious persecution and calamity on earth, thereby restoring dharma.
Prahlada is an asura king in Hindu mythology. He was the son of Hiraṇyakasipu, who disagreed and rebelled against his father. Prahlada became a devotee of Vishnu. This angered Hiraṇyakasipu, who tried to kill the boy—but with each attempt, Prahlada was protected by Viṣṇu's mystical power.In order to kill Hiraṇyakasipu and not upset the boon given by Brahma, the form of Narasiṃha was chosen.
