Legend of Lord Ugra Narasimha of Joshimath

Lord Narasimha

Lord Narasimha of Joshimath, Uttarakhand, is widely known to a a fierce deity who had come to the rescue of his devotee Bhagvadpad Adi Shankaracharya.

Lord Narasimha's image is seated in Padmasana and is considered by many to be self manifested or swayambhu. It is made of Shaligram stone, which is found in the Gandaki river of Nepal and worshiped by Vaishnavas across India as a manifestation of Lord Vishnu.

The Lord's right arm has become very thin and is expected to break in future. The breaking of the arm would be a sign of the end of the ongoing dark age or Kali Yuga after which pralaya or destruction of the world would take place and Satya Yuga would begin.
May Lord Narasimha, the refuge of Prahlad and Adi Shankara grant us the refuge of his lotus feet!
