Little Heroes is a series of children books introducing important personalities from the Hindu religion.
So far there are six booklets: Prahlad, Luv Kush, Krishna, Hanuman, Ganesha and Bheema.
This is the story of Prahlad. His father Hiranyakasipu was a great demon, and after he unsuccessfully tried to make his son to become a demon, he gave order to kill him, because Prahlada was a very devoted follower of Lord Visnu. They tried all kinds of ways to kill Prahlad without any effect. Last Hiranyakasipu was angrily stucking a stone pillar thinking of Visnu, and it broke and Visnu appeared in the form of Narasimha, and he killed Hiranyakasipu. Now Prahlad was giving prayers to Narasimhadeva, and the Lord became peaceful and blissfully lifted his dearest devotee Prahlada on his lap, thereafter He went back to His abode in the spiritual world.
Prahlad became later Prahlad Maharaja and was ruling over the kingdom.
