BHAKTA PRAHLADA STORY IN PDF

Bhakta Prahlada is the first full length Telugu talkie film based on the story of Narasimha and Prahlada in Hindu mythology. The demon king, Hiranyakashipu, gets a boon that he can't be killed by a human, animal or God, he can't be killed during day or night, and he can't be killed inside or outside his home. The son of demon king Hiranyakashipu, Prahlada, is a staunch devotee of Lord Vishnu. As Gods are considered enemies to demons and Vishnu being the most hated God, Hiranyakashipu tries to educate his son to change his perspective but Prahlada comes up with a more mature argument against his father and teachers. Finally, Hiranyakashipu decides to kill his son but Lord Vishnu appears in the form of half-human and half-lion, and kills him at the entrance of his house at the time of sunset putting an end to the rule of the demons over Earth.

It is also known as Puranaratna "gem of Puranas". Presented as a dialogue between Parashara and his disciple Maitreya, the major topics discussed include creation, stories of battles fought between asuras and devas, the Avat Hiranyakashipu had received a boon from Brahma. On the strength of this boon, he conquered the three worlds. He drove out Indra from heaven and assumed the title of Indra. The gods fled from heaven svarga and roamed around the world in human forms.

Everyone had to worship Hiranyakashipu, the king of the daityas the sons of Diti. Hiranyakashipu lived in a magnificent palace made of crystal. There the apsaras danced. And Hiranyakashipu indulged in drinking wine. Young Prahlada had been sent away to study with his guru teacher.

On a vacation he came home with his teacher and Hiranyakashipu naturally wanted to find out what his son had learnt. He is saying this of his own accord. Let him unlearn all this. He was then again brought back before Hiranyakashipu. He is a disgrace to my family. On hearing these words, hundreds and thousands of daityas attacked Prahlada with all sorts of weapons. But because Prahlada was protected by Vishnu, the weapons could do him no harm.

Hiranyakashipu then let loose many poisonous snakes on Prahlada. Hiranyakshipu then asked many elephants to kill Prahlada with their tusks. The elephants threw done Prahlada on the gound and gored him with their tusks. But Prahlada thought of Vishnu and the tusks broke on his breast. On the orders of Hiranyakashipu, the daityas next lit a fire.

Prahlada was put into the fire, but the flames could do nothing to him. Prahlada went back to his guru. But whenever he could find the time, he began to teach the sons of the daityas. He taught them to pray to Vishnu. The cooks did as they were told.

But because Prahlada thought of Vishnu, the poison had no effect. The priests tried to persuade Prahlada once more. But to no avail. The priests then created a demon. The demon was like the flames of a fire. It dug up the earth with its feet. And attacked Prahlada with a huge trishula trident. This frustrated the demon and it turned around and began to attack the priests instead.

The priests ran here and there, but were all killed by the demon. This made Prahlada very unhappy. The priests went back to Hiranyakashipu and told him what had happened. Prahlada was taken to Hiranyakashipu once more. He instructed his servants to take Prahlada to the top of the place and throw him down so that his bones might break on the rocks below.

The servants did as they were told. But Prahlada thought of Vishnu as he fell, and nothing happened to him. Hiranyakashipu then called Shambarasura.

This was an asura who was well versed in the use of maya, the technique of creating illusions and hallucinations. Shambarasura used maya to create illusions around Prahlada. But Prahalda kept thinking of Vishnu. But this too failed. And Prahlada returned to the home of his teacher. The teacher taught him the things that a king should know. These precepts of royal policy had been laid down a long time ago by Shukracharya. When his education had been completed, Prahalda was brought again before Hiranyakashipu.

How will you deal with your enemies? I fVishnu is everywhere, how can there be enemies? I see firnds everywhere, Gods, humans, birds, animals, tree and snakes are all ful of the same Vishnu.

Therefore, one should look upon the whole world as one looks upon oneself. Hiranyakashipu became mad with anger. He got up from his throne and kicked his son on the chest. He told his soldiers to tie Prahlada in nooses of snakes and throw him into the sea.

They were then to throw down mountains on the sea so that Prahlada got crushed. This is precisely what the daityas did. But Prahlada kept on praying to Vishnu.

He forgot all about himself and thought only of Vishnu. Prahlada became like Vishnu himself and the nooses of snakes fell away from his body. Prahalada removed the mountains tha thad been thrown down by the daityas and emerged from the water. He prayed to Vishnu and Vishnu appeared before him. Prahlada returned to Hiranyakashipu and the father relented and embrace his son. Eventually, Vishnu adopted the form of a man-lion nrishimha and killed Hiranyakashipu. Prahlada became the king of the daityas and he ruled well and wisely.

He had many sons and grandsons. I have told you that the Vishnu Purana has six major sections. This where the first section ends. The Vishnu Purana abridged 27, words Hinduism Purana.
