Guide: Prahlad

This is a guide to Prahlad: A Tale Of Devotion From The Bhagawat Purana (Volume 537). You can find it at Amazon.

Bizzell Reserves call number: PN 6790 .I443 A437 v.537

Summary: This is the story of Vishnu's incarnation as Narasimha, the Man-Lion. Prahlad is the son of Hiranyakashipu, king of the asuras, and he is devoted to Vishnu, who killed Hiranyakashipu's brother. Disgusted by his son's devotion to Vishnu, Hiranyakashipu sentences Prahlad to death, and to save Prahlad and the other followers of the gods, Vishnu takes the form of Narasimha and defeats the asura king. You can read more about Narasimha at Wikipedia.

I have not had time to write the Reading Guide for this one, so please help me with that: in addition to doing your own Reading Diary post at your blog, leave a comment here at this blog where you list the names, places, topics, anything you saw in this comic book that I could/should explain the Reading Guide later.

If you don't see anything that need explaining, leave a comment that says "Everything clear" or something like that.

That way, with your help, I'll be able to focus my attention on the comic books that people have the most questions about.
