It just occurred to me today, we don’t study any statements spoken directly by Lord Nṛsiṁhadeva. So what is to Lord Nṛsiṁhadeva as the Bhagavad-gītā is to Kṛṣṇa? It’s the activities, statements and especially the prayers made by Prahlāda Mahārāja that are studied in relation to Lord Nṛsiṁhadeva. Of course Lord Nṛsiṁhadeva’s actions speak louder than words. His appearance before Hiraṇyakaśipu is testimony itself to the Lord’s affection for His devotee. And his wrath towards those who persecute His pure devotees. Not only that, the behaviour and character of Prahlāda Mahārāja speaks volumes of the Lord’s character. What is the leader like, if His followers are such wonderful individuals in their own right?

It is interesting to note that in the pastimes of Lord Nṛsiṁhadeva we study the teachings of Prahlāda Mahārāja since in effect their is no specific treatise spoken by the Lord like that of the Bhagavad-gītā spoken by Kṛṣṇa. Why is that do you think?
