Narasimha also spelled as Narasingh, Narsingh and Narasingha, whose name literally translates from Sanskrit as "Man-lion", is an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu and one of Hinduism's most popular deities, as evidenced in early epics, iconography, and temple and festival worship for over a millennium.
Narasimha is often visualized as half-man/half-lion, having a human-like torso and lower body, with a lion-like face and claws. This image is widely worshipped in deity form by a significant number of Vaishnava groups. He is known primarily as the 'Great Protector' who specifically defends and protects his devotees in times of need.
Narasimha is also a protector of his devotees in times of danger. Near Srisailam, there is a forest called Hatakeshwanam, that no man enters. Shankaracharya entered this place and did penance for many days. During this time, a Kapalika, by name Kirakashan appeared before him. Kapalikas are a set of people who live in the burial grounds and pray to God by giving human and animal sacrifice. They were against the Vedanta system of Adi Shankara, which preaches love and shuns violence. He told Sri Shankara that he should give his body as a human sacrifice to Kali. Sankara happily agreed. His disciples were shocked to hear this and pleaded with Shankara to change his mind, but he refused to do so saying that it was an honor to give up his body as a sacrifice for Kali and one must not lament such things. The Kapalika arranged a fire for the sacrifice and Shankara sat beside it. Just as he lifted his axe to severe the head of Shankara, Lord Vishnu as Narasimha entered the body of the disciple of Shankaracharya and Narasimha devotee, Padmapada. He then fought the Kapalika, slayed him and freed the forest of Kapalikas. Adi Shankara composed the very powerful Lakshmi-Narasimha Karavalambam Stotram at the very spot in front of Lord Narasimha.
