the evil king, hiranyakshap, was givin "powers" by lord vishnu
dnt hyranyakshap wanted everyone to worship him and not god, but his son prahlad didnt want to worship him so the evil king (his dad) got reallly mad and wanted to kill him.
then his father told him to jump off a moutin, but he remained safe and not hurt
that didnt work so he got wild elephants to trample him but that also didnt work, so he tryed posioning but it turned into necter in his mouth. So none of that worked so he put him in a room with wild mean snakes but they didnt do nothing too him. Then he put his son on a girls lap and she had cover in a shal but he lit her on fire and theen the shal flew off her onto prahlad and the girl died and he didnt.
Then lord vishnu turned into half man half lion and killed hiranyakshap at dusk on his porch steps.
