|Caption||After Lord Nrsimhadeva [the half-man, half-lion incarnation of the Lord] killed the demon Hiranyakashipu, He continued to be very angry. All the saintly persons and demigods offered Him prayers of glorification and praise, but no one could pacify Him. Lord Brahma then requested Prahlada to go forward and appease Lord Nrsimhadeva. Prahlad gradually walked toward the Lord and fell down to offer his respectful obeisances with folded hands.|
"When Lord Nrsimhadeva saw the small boy Prahlada Maharaja prostrated at the soles of His lotus feet, He became most ecstatic in affection toward His devotee. Raising Prahlada, the Lord placed His lotus hand upon the boy's head because His hand is always ready to create fearlessness in all of His devotees."
