Appearance of Sri Nrisimhadeva
Thursday 4 May 2023
Sri Nrisimhadeva is Lord Krishna’s incarnation as half-man, half-lion. He is glorified, described and explained in the Vaisnava scripture Srimad Bhagavatam. Devotees pray to this form of the Lord for protection, not only from physical threats but also from the selfish attachments in our own hearts.
Lord Nrisimhadeva came to protect his great devotee, Prahlada Maharaja, who constantly prayed to Lord Krishna despite being tortured by his father, Hiranyakashipu. Nrsimhadeva outwitted the demon Hiranyakashipu, who thought that he had been blessed to never die under any circumstance.
Nrisimha Caturdasi, the appearance of Sri Nrisimhadeva is a day to pray for protection and celebrate His glories.

The best way to get to the Manor is to drive. If you are using google maps, search for ‘Bhaktivedanta Manor, Watford’ and follow directions. If you are using a SatNav, use approximate driving postcode WD25 8HE and follow road signs to ‘Hare Krishna Temple’. Do not use WD25 8EZ on your SatNav, as this will lead you to Letchmore Heath village through which there is no access to the Temple. The only entrance to temple is via Hilfield Lane.
Sat-Nav: WD25 8HE
