Hiranyakashipu was a powerful Demon king who worshiped Lord Brahma for a Boon.

Brahma granted him the boon because of his hard Tapasya. Hiranyakashipu asked for such a boon which made it impossible for any one to kill him. Hiranyakashipu asked for the boon that should not be killed during day or night, neither on earth nor in sky, neither by man nor by animal, neither in  nor outside home, neither by Astra nor by shastra (tools and weapons).

After attaining such a boon Hiranyakashipu attacked Havens and earth and demanded people to worship him. Hiranyakashipu’s Son Prahlada was a devotee of Lord Vishnu . Despite of all his efforts Hiranyakashipu could not make his son to hate Lord Vishnu. Hiranyakashipu ordered to kill Prahlada . Prahlada was poisened, trembled by elephants, throun between hungry snakes, even Hiranyakashipu’s sister Holika (click here to know the story of Prahlad and Holika) could not kill him.

Hiranyakashipu asked Prahlada if he truly believe in Vishnu then he must ask Vishnu to come out of a Pillar in front of them.

Hearing Prahlada’s Pray lord Vishnu took the Avatar of Narshimha and came out of that pillar . He killed Hiranyakashipu at the Dusk (neither day nor night) on the steps of the porch of his house ( neither inside nor outside the house) by restraining him on his lap (neither in sky nor on earth) and mauling him with his claws (neither astra nor shastra).  . Narshimha is half men half lion(neither man nor animal).

  5. Nice read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch as I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch! “He who walks in another’s tracks leaves no footprints.” by Joan Brannon.

  6. Just to follow up on the up-date of this matter on your web page and would wish to let you know how much I prized the time you took to create this helpful post.

  7. Thanks, I’ve just been searching for information about this topic for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve discovered till now. However, what concerning the conclusion? Are you sure concerning the source?

  9. Between me and my better half we’ve owned more Ipods over the years than I will count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the past decades I’ve settled down to one brand of players. Why? Because I’d been happy to discover how well-designed and fun to work with the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  10. I do agree with all the concepts you have presented for your post. They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very brief for beginners. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.
