Jayanti means birthday celebration. Narasimha Jayanti signifies the first appearance of Lord Narasimha on the planet earth. God Narasimha is the fourth and the greatest incarnation of Lord Vishnu. People believe that, Narasimha appeared to protect his devotee, Prahlada, from his father Hiranyakashyapu. Devotees observe Narasimha Vratham or fast on this day. They take sankalpa during aparhana (afternoon time), perform Narasimha jayanti puja in the Sandhya kaal (during sunset).

Lord Narasimha  is a half-man half-lion avatar of God Vishnu and looks quite outstanding and unique. Narasimha Jayanti is observed on the Chaturdashi (14th day) of the shukla paksha (waxing phase of the moon) in the Vaishaka masa. This year, Narasimha Jayanti is on Friday, 20th May 2016.
