Lakshmi Narasimha – Malolan of Sri Vaishnavism
Lakshmi Narasimha, the statue of Lord Narasimha with Goddess Lakshmi on His lap is a very beautiful form of Lord Vishnu’s ten incarnations.
Though Andra Pradesh and Telengana are said to be the origin of worshipping Lord Narasimha with more than 500 Narasimha temples dotted across two states, the unique statue is worshipped widely across the country. Many historians claim that Lord Narasimha is the origin of Indian Lion God worshipped by tribal people of Andhra Pradesh.
The finely crafted features of the statue with the partly man and partly lion appearance mesmerizes everyone. The majestic crowns, mustache, conch and chakra on both hands, folding of his dhothi are so remarkably created in the statue. Similarly, the ornaments worn by Goddess Lakshmi and especially the blessing smile on Her face are so gorgeous to look on. The bas relief representing petals of lotus are innately figured out. Though Lakshmi Narasimha is known to be a fiercely deity, you can find Him embracing Lakshmi with his left hand, an act of caring and romance, portrayed blissfully.
Lakshmi Narasimha is called as Malolan, Ma means Goddess Lakshmi and Lolan, Lord Vishnu himself. Stories about Demon King Hiranyakashyap and his son Prahlad are connected to the worship of Lord Lakshmi Narasimha.
