Hiranyakashipu was blessed by god after being pleased by his long meditation. But when he heard from him commander-in-chief that his brother Hiranyakashipu was killed by lord Bishnu, he stopped worshipping hari in this kingdom. Hiranyakashipu while knew that his son prahjlad in a hari-worshipper he sent him to his teacher gurudeb sukracharya. But sukracharya was busy in meditation. So the verponsibility of prahlad was taken try sukracharya's two sons shando and awarko. After few days prahlad was asked by his father to slow what he has teart. Hiranyakashipu asked his son what is the ultimate learning? Prahlad answered, Hari-worshipping. Hearing this the demon king Hiranyakashipu was so angry that he ordered to behead his own son. But during beheading the sword was broken into two pieces. It was then ordered to throw Prahlad in front of poisonous snake. But the snake, after listening Hari-chant from Prahlad refused to bite him. Then demon king ordered to throw Prahlad before a rogue elephant. But the elephant refused also to do any harm to Prahlad. Demon queen Kayadhan repeatedly requested her husband to pardon his son, but it was in rain. Now the king ordered to throw Prahlad in the deep sea after tying him with a huge stone. But now commander-in-chief refused to obey the king's order. Angry demon king killed his most trusted soldier for disobeying. When someone else threw Prahlad in deep sea lord Narayan himself saved him. Seeing all this the demons started chanting Hari's name. At last Nrisingha Abatar appeared out of a pillar and freed anti-Bishnu mighty demon king Hiranyakashipu.
