Nrisimha, the man-lion form of Vishnu in the Egyptian style. Gouache on paper by Keshav. Vishnu, the all pervading one, in the man-lion form, knocks on the door of each one of us. We have to surrender our ego, which is the closed door to the heart. Once the surrender is complete, God enters our heart. Prahlada, the demon's son, is seen with folded hands. In the background, one can see the entire story of Hiranyakashipu, how he tries to kill his son for not obeying him -- for not accepting him as the almighty.
