FILE INFO
CaptionHiranyakashipu could see that Lord Vishnu was standing before him in the form of a half-man, half-lion, but out of his pride, Hiranyakashipu thought, "Who can fight with me?" Raising his club, he attacked Lord Nrsimhadeva, and appeared just like a small insect who flies forcefully into a fire. Such was the effulgence of the Lord. Lord Nrsimhadeva captured the demon; and then gave him a chance to escape. Foolishly thinking the Lord was afraid of his prowess, Hiranyakashipu attacked again. The Supreme Lord laughed loudly and captured the demon again. Hiranyakashipu moved his limbs all around, but the Lord simply placed the demon on His lap and with the sharp nails on His lotus hands, He easily tore into Hiranyakashipu's body.
-Summarized from Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 7, Chapter 8
