What Happened To One Who Wanted To Kill The Vedic Culture

What Happened to One who wanted to kill the Vedic Culture

This is a short version of a real life event that took place many millions of years ago. This is documented in the Vedic scripture called Srimad-Bhagavatam (Canto 7, chapter 3).

Hiranyakashipu was a person who wanted to become very powerful. He found out that by performing severe penances for Brahma (engineer of the universe) for some time, he could be granted boons which would make him immortal. So he performed severe penances and after completing them, Brahma was satisfied, and asked him what boons he wanted.

Hiranyakashipu asked for the following boons:

1. He could not be killed any man
2. He could not be killed by any animal
3. He could not be killed in the air
4. He could not be killed in the water
5. He could not be killed inside a building
6. He could not be killed outside a building
7. He could not be killed in the daytime
8. He could not be killed in the nighttime
9. He could not be killed by any weapon
10. He could not be killed by any tool
11. He could not be killed during the 12 months of the year

He was granted all the above boons by Brahma. By attaining the boons, Hiranyakashipu thought he had become immortal. Anyone would think that with the above boons, one would become immortal. But one does not know how intelligent Lord Vishnu, the real God is, as we shall see below.

On attaining the boons, he became very nasty in his dealings with everyone and considered himself as the one and only God. He ordered people to only worship him as the true God and reject Lord Vishnu (Krishna). He ordered Vedic rituals and worship to be stopped and ordered Vedic priests to be put to death and so on.

Hiranyakashipu had a son named Prahlad, who was a pure devotee of Lord Vishnu. When Hiranyakashipu heard that his son was a devotee of Lord Vishnu. He ordered him to his palace and told him that he was the only God and to stop worshipping Vishnu. His son, Prahlad, refused to accept this. The angry Hiranyakashipu challenged Prahlad and asked him where his Vishnu was. Prahlad replied “My Lord Vishnu is omnipresent and there is not a single place where is not found”. The furious Hiranyakashipu got up from his throne and asked Prahlad “Is your Vishnu present in this pillar?” Prahlad said “Yes, He is!” Hiranyakashipu said “I will kill your Vishnu”. He hit the pillar very hard with a mace, thinking that this will kill Vishnu. As the pillar was hit, the pillar cracked and Lord Vishnu appeared from the pillar in the form of Lord Narasimha – He was half man and half lion form. The furious Lord Narasimha grabbed Hiranyakashipu, pulled him onto his lap and ripped open his body with his claws and killed Hiranyakashipu.

Lord Narasimha killed Hiranyakashipu, keeping all the boons intact as follows:

1. He could not be killed any man – Lord Narasimha was not a man
2. He could not be killed by any animal – Lord Narasimha was not an animal
3. He could not be killed in the air – Lord Narasimha killed Hiranyakashipu on his lap, not in air
4. He could not be killed in the water – Lord Narasimha killed Hiranyakashipu on his lap, not in the water.
5. He could not be killed inside a building – Lord Narasimha killed Hiranyakashipu on a window edge, not inside a building
6. He could not be killed outside a building – Lord Narasimha killed Hiranyakashipu on a window edge, not outside a building
7. He could not be killed in the daytime – Lord Narasimha killed Hiranyakashipu at sunset, not in daytime
8. He could not be killed in the nighttime – Lord Narasimha killed Hiranyakashipu at sunset, not in the night
9. He could not be killed by any weapon ¬- Lord Narasimha killed Hiranyakashipu with His nails, this is not considered a weapon
10. He could not be killed by any tool – Lord Narasimha killed Hiranyakashipu with His nails, this is not considered a tool
11. He could not be killed during the 12 months of the year – Lord Narasimha killed Hiranyakashipu during the 13th month (Purushottam Maas). In the Vedic calendar, every 3 years, there is one extra month, this is considered the 13th month. When Hiranyakashipu asked for the 12 months boon, he forgot that every 3 years there is one extra month.

This real life story illustrates how intelligent the real God, Lord Vishnu (Krishna) is and shows what will happen to all those who oppose, or try to destroy the Vedic culture, and those who offend the devotees of Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu is the real, seen, and proven God. He protects His devotees and destroys the demonic.

There are no cases like the above in other religions. When the real God appears and personally protects and saves His devotees. This is because there is only one God, Lord Vishnu.  He is most merciful and everyone can be protected and saved if they serve and worship Him.
