The fight (between Nringadev and Hiranyakashipu) was fairly similar, catching…releasing…flying in the air, fighting with each other. When it was the right time, then Nrsingadev grabbed Hiranyakashipu like a big bug. But this time he sat on his throne, took him and bifurcated him into two…took out the intestine and everything.
And in that lila, it is said that Lakshmidevi could approach (Nringadev). In the Bhagavatam lila He was too angry, even She couldn’t approach. But in this one She could approach. Everyone has little differences. She sat on Nringadev’s lap. The Devas wanted to approach and offer prayers, but it was so intensely effulgent from Nrsingadev, they told…communicated..whispered to Lakshmi that, “Effulgence cooling please!”.
So the Lord has different kinds of jyoti, intense hot jyoti and also cooling jyoti, like moon rays. So then She whispered something in His ear and, He switched the jyoti to ‘cooling’…’cooling mode’. Then everyone came and offered prayers and Prahalad came and offered. Like that..very interesting that, not only one time Nringadev comes.HH Jayapataka Swami Lecture Nrsimha Caturdasi, 2008 Sridham Mayapur
