While the other say that when all the Gods were helpless to pacify Lord Narashima , the three Goddess Parvathi Devi, Saraswathi Devi and Lakshmi Devi created Prathiyangara Devi and sent to fierceful Lord Narashima, who was destroying the whole world after he extinguished the demon King Hiraniyakasipu. http://catalogs.indiamart.com/products/goddess-statues.html
