Nrisingha is a man-lion avatar. It is told that Vishnu, the supreme lord, descended to earth as a creature half man and half lion. On earth he slew the demon Hiranyakasipu because this demon’s great pride had angered the gods as well as man. This is a very involved story which I will not attempt to tell here. Hindu mythology is always very involved and usually bloody. I find it interesting.
