Narasimha Jayanti Thoughts and Quotes by Hindu Blog

A a few thoughts and quotes on Narasimha Jayanti. Narasimha Jayanti is the day when Hindu God Vishnu appeared in the form of Narasimha.

I said to him, ‘Not even a leaf moves except by the will of God.’ Where is man’s free will? All are under the will of God.
