Nrsimha Caturdasi

Wednesday 6th May marks Nrsimha Caturdasi – the Appearance Day of the half-lion, half-man incarnation of God. 

As you will know, the Manor is currently on lock-down due to the Corona-virus and will not be able to accept guests. However, there is a core-team of ashram residents who are taking care of the beautiful shrine, looking after the estate etc.

Due to popular demand, the resident devotees have decided to keep spirits high and make sure that on Nrshimha’s Appearance Day the class, drama skit, special prayers and yajna will be available online on Manor Media and

The planned schedule is as follows:


Lord Nrsimha is the incarnation of Lord Krsna that appeared to protect his young devotee Prahlada. He appeared as half-man half-lion and killed the envious, atheistic demon, Hiranyakashipu who was materialism personified (hiran-gold, kasipu-soft bed). Devotees pray to Lord Nrsimhadeva for protection and to kill their material desires.
