Hari Darshan is a saga of God and a worshiper. There is always a change in nature according to the season and a change in nature according to the season and a change in every human being according to their thoughts. Accordingly God has to take birth according to the change in the minds of people. It is an old saying and is based on brief on our ancient tradition. On these bases 24 (twenty fourth) birth of God have been shown in picture HARI DARSHAN.

There is a rivalry between God and Asoors, believers and non-believers and good man and bad man. Since ancient time.
Bhakta Pralhalad-a son of Hiranya Kashyap who was blessed by Brahma that he will not be killed by any human being or animal in day or in night outside the house or inside the house and that he is immortal had volved to destroy Lord Vishnu because Lord Vishnu had killed his brother Hiranarha in birth of Varah-was born and brought up in Ashram under the guidance of Naradji as Naradji knew it since the conception that to be borne child is a staunch descible of God. So Prahlad started worshipping God who was the enemy of his father.

Every father desires that his children should follow his path. But Prahald did not abandon his love towards God so Hiranya Kashyap put him under the guidance of his Guru Shandamarka. Even there also he did not learn to hate God.
Hiranya Kashyap was admant. He wanted that his son also should hate God. Despite everything when Prahlad did not leave worship of Hari, Haranya Kashyap tried to kill his own son. He managed to throw him in the sea, in boiling oil even tried to burn him alive through his sister Holika. But Prahalad was very dear to God and it was a profound duty of God to save him, from all the injuries. Hiranya Kashyap was so blind with revenge that he tried to punish the entire nation alongwith his own blood and flesh-Prahlad. Each and every time God had to tush to save his own dearest worshiper. Whilst trying to cut the throat of Prahlad in his court he cut the throat of Kayadhu-his dearest wife and mother of Prahlad. This was extreme.

God could hot bear not further calamities and he appeared in guise of Nrushiha i.e. body of a man and head of a lion neither a human being nor an animal and killed Hiranya Kashyap the time was neither the day nor night and the place was neither inside of his palace nor outside the palace.

And thus it is proved that those who are the real worshippers of God have not to worry from any body as they are very nearer and dearer to God.
