NARADA

Prahlada

Hiranyakashipu was an enemy of the devatas (gods). Once, while he was away at the Mandara mountains for penance, Lord Indra. Kidnapped his wife Kayadu and tried to kill the child in her womb. Then Narada went to Lord Indra and prevented the misdeed by preaching him good sense. Narada then took away Kayadu to his ashram and looked after her till Hiranyakashipu came back from his penance. The child in her womb was Prahlada. Narada used to address Prahlada even while he was in his mother's womb and he would preach the child Dharma and describe the glory of the Lord. Thus when Prahlada was born he was already a great devotee of Mahavishnu.
