Narsingh Jayanti 2018 Date

Narsingh Jayanti celebrates the Avatar day of fourth incarnation of Lord Vishnu - popularly known as ‘man-lion’ or ‘half man – half lion’ incarnation. Narsingh Jayanti 2018 date is April 28. The main aim of the Narsingh or Narasimha incarnation was to end the tyranny of Demon Hiranyakashipu and restore the path of Dharma. Prahlada, the young son of Hiranyakashipu and an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu, paved the way for the removal of Adharma.

Narsingh Jayanti is observed on the 14th day of the Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of moon) in Vaisakha month (April – May). It is believed that Vishnu appeared in the form of Narasimha on the day to annihilate demon Hiranyakashipu.

Some Vishnu devotees observe a fast on the day. Special prayers and pujas are performed on the day. Jaggery and gram sprouts are offered to the deity.
