Narasimha is the 4th incarnation of Lord Vishnu that appears in the form of half lion and half man to kill the demon to destroy evil by kill demon Hiranyakashipu. The word ‘Narasimha’ comprises of two words – ‘nara’ meaning ‘man’ and ‘sinha’ meaning ‘lion’. His birth is celebrated as Narasimha Jayanti that falls on Vaishakha Shukla Chaturdashi. In 2019, Narasimha Jayanti will be celebrated on May 19. On Narasimha Jayanti, devotees take sankalp during Madhyahna (afternoon) and perform puja in the evening before the sunset, as it is believed that Narasimha appeared during sunset. Devotees observing fast on the day are advised to break it next day after performing Visarjan puja and giving a donation to the brahmins. Those observing the fast consume only a single meal a day before Narasimha Jayanti.
