Lord Narasimha after killing Hiranya drank blood. He could not control. As usual all went to Siva and requested him to control Narasimha. Siva and Narasimha had gruelling fight and at last Narasimha fell on the ground with folded hands in front of siva. Any puranic reference for this. Shiva puranam says about Shiva's bravery.Vishu puranam speaks about Vishnu's bravery. As Narsimha cannot be overthrown by anybody bcoz he is the supreme God. Narasimha [Vishnu] is the creator, preserver and destroyer. After Vishnu it is Brahma and then only Shiva.

  • That answer has story taken from Shiva Purana. So, exactly a duplicate. – The Destroyer Aug 30 '16 at 10:09

    @ParthasarathyRaghavan First of all, Story can be real or imaginary (see meaning of word "Story"). Second, You asked Puranic reference, and that question has answer taken from Shiva Purana. And finally, don't assume i belong to Shiva sect just by seeing my Profile picture and info on profile page. – The Destroyer Aug 30 '16 at 10:15

    Might be offtopic,but i'm sad to say this.This hatred btween Vishnu devotees and Shiva is only to be found mostly in Southern India apart from ofcourse Isckon who propagte such haterd.This hatred is non existent in Northern India which is ideally the way it shud be. – Rickross Aug 30 '16 at 14:56
