Sri Narasimha Jayanti
The story behind the Avatara
Lord Narasimha is the fourth of the ten main incarnation of Lord Vishnu and is with a Lion's head on Man's body. He appeared to save His ardent devotee Prahlada from the demon king Hiranyakashipu.
Hiranyakashipu performed great penance to please Lord Brahma and sought a boon that he cannot die on earth or in space, in fire or in water, during the day or at night, at the hands of humans or by the gods or by any species, by the animate or by inanimate, either inside the house or outside the house. Being very please by his penance, Brahma granted the boon.
Soon Hiranyakashipu, proud by the boon he got from Brahma, conquered the gods and brought all the worlds under his control. He began to harrass the gods and torture the saints and other devotees of Vishnu. Hiranyakashipu declared himself to be the God of the whole universe and proclaimed that there was no other God but himself. To that end, he banned all worship of the Omnipotent Vishnu. In time, his wife, Queen Kayaadu, became pregnant with Prahlada. While in his mother's womb, Prahlada had the good fortune to listen to Sage Narada tell stories about Lord Vishnu and his infinite compassion towards His devotees. Hence even before his birth, Prahalada became engrossed in the name of Lord Vishnu.
Hiranyakashipu considered Lord Vishnu his arch enemy and had banned anyone from even saying Sri Vishnu's name in his kingdom.
Hiranyakashipu could not bear the torture of having his own son chant Lord Narayana's name. He tried to teach Prahalada that Hiranyakashyapu himself was the prime god and greater than Lord Vishnu. But Prahalada would not be swayed and stayed true in his devotion to Lord Vishnu.
Having failed, Hiranyakashipu tried to kill his son in various diabolical ways. He ordered him to be trampled under foot by an elephant but the elephant was unable to do succeed. Then the king ordered the boy to be thrown off a cliff but, as Vishnu resided in the heart of Prahlada, he came down upon the earth as gently as a flower floats down to the ground. Poison, fire, starvation and other measures were also tried in vain. Nothing could hurt him in whose heart dwelt Lord Vishnu and who felt Vishnu's presence everywhere.
To this, Prahalada replied that Lord Vishnu is omnipresent. Hiranyakashipu pointed out at a pillar in his palace and asked Prahalada whether Vishnu was present in it. Prahalada's reply was affirmative. The Demon using his Gadha(Mace) broke open the pillar and there emerged Lord Narasimha who slain the demon using his sharp paws and blessed Prahalad as his topmost devotee on earth.To mark the above incidence and to pay our respect to the Lord, Narasimha Jayanthi is celebrated at several temples.

|Share Your Food
Help yourself while helping the Needy
Giving food to the hungry is one of the highest forms of charity. When this charity is coupled with self-denial and sacrifice, it makes the giver more devout. To encourage self-discipline and preserve the world's resources, HH Sri Swamiji has created the 'Share Your Food" (SYF) vrata or fast.
Tuesday is recognized as Hanuman's day. For the SYF vrata, on every Tuesday for the next three years, make the pledge to fast for one meal either breakfast, lunch or dinner. Soon you will become habituated to eating one meal less. But it does not stop there. That sacrificed meal must reach a hungry mouth! Set aside the food or money from that skipped meal to give to yo
ur local food banks or other worthy
For your convenience, the Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple will be collecting donations for the "Share Your Food" project. Those interested may come to registration desk at the Temple to make their financial or non-perishable food donations. Those who register at the Temple will have their information added to the list of vrata participants across the globe.
All non-perishable/canned food collections at the Temple will go to the North Texas Food Bank while monetary donations will be shared equally
between local charities and the Datta Venkateswara Temple in Mysore, where thousands of destitute people are given free meals every purnima.
Sri Swamiji Says
Divine Guidance for Devotees
The reason for the apparent lack of harmony in our life is our utter disregard for the source of all harmony namely God. We are living today
because there is that Spark of Divinity in us. By realizing it we can achieve harmony and balance in our life. Behind the veil of maddening chaos shrouding our life an unseen and invisible eternal order and arrangement exists.
-- Parama Pujya
Sri Sri Sri Ganapathy
Service to mankind is
indeed service to God!
