In ancient times, there was a Rishi named Kashyapa. He had a wife named Diti and had two sons, Hariyanksha and Hiranyakashyap. Although they were the sons of Rishi, they had the tendency like that of demons. In this pretext, Lord Vishnu incarnated himself as Varaha and  killed Hariyanaksha to protect the earth. Then, Hiranyakashyap got furious at his brother’s demise and resolved to take revenge for his brother’s death and be victorious. After this, he pleased Brahma Ji with deep meditation and received a boon for the fulfillment of his desire. Further, he captured heaven by defeating deities and established his rule and thus, he became the lord of all the three worlds and started considering himself as god and became arrogant.

When he grew up, his father asked Prahalad to worship him but he did not agree with him and started speaking against his father’s wrongdoings. Also, his father tried everything possible to digress his son’s attention from worshipping Lord Vishnu. He also tried to kill him by pushing him from high mountains and burning him alive with the help of his sister. However, all the attempts went in vain owing to the influence of Lord Vishnu.
