Vaisakha Sukla Chaturdasi-Nrisimha Jayanti May 26th


Vaisakha sukla chaturdasi falls this year on the date of May 26th. This was the day Lord Vishnu incarnated as Sri Lakshmi Narasimha to protect his dear devotee and maha bhagawata Prahlada. This is a very important day for the Vaishnava bhaktas and usually devotees fast on this day. Each incarnation of the lord conveys a hidden meaning of the divine play .Andhra pradesh has the largest concentration of Lakshmi Narasimha swamy shrines and the festival is celebrated with vigour. It is also a day that can be used by people afflicted with Mars problems . Mars is represented in vedic astrology by Lord Narasimha and Lord Karthikeya . Both of them can be prayed to for releif from Mars related problems.
