I recently came across this picture of Vishnu's incarnation Narasimha being worshiped by various Devas:

enter image description here

Most of these Devas are recognizable. Starting from the top left and going counterclockwise, I recognize Garuda, Surya, Agni, Daksha, Shiva, Nandi, Kamadhenu, Ganesha, Kartikeya, Parvati, Brahma, Ketu, Tumburu, Vishvaksena, and Garuda.

But my question is, who is the headless god kneeling in the bottom left corner of the picture? And how did he lose his head?

He may be associated with the two horned figures kneeling to him, if that helps.

  • Where did you get this picture from ? – TheLittleNaruto May 29 '18 at 4:42
  • @TheLittleNaruto From a discussion group for shishyas of the Sri Vaishnava Acharya Mudhaliandan Swami. (He is a descendant of Ramanujacharya's nephew Mudhaliandan. I am also a descendant of Mudaliandan, but I come from a different branch of Mudhaliandan's family tree.) – Keshav Srinivasan May 29 '18 at 4:49
  • Is it possible to ask them and post an answer ? Because I doubt here anyone would be able to answer this because of unclear drawing. – TheLittleNaruto May 29 '18 at 6:01

    Couldn't he just be bowing too much that his head is not in perspective? – Surya Jun 24 '18 at 16:06
