Prahlada (Sanskrit: प्रह्लाद, romanized: Prahlāda), In Hinduism, was a prince who was very devoted to Vishnu. His father, Hiranyakashipu, was a powerful demon who wanted his son to worship him instead. But Prahlada refused, and he continued to worship Vishnu.[1] Hiranyakashipu tried to kill Prahlada many times, but Vishnu always protected him. Finally, Vishnu appeared in his Narasimha avatar, a half-man, half-lion form, and killed Hiranyakashipu.[1]
