HIRANYAKSHA

Another Demon with exactly the same immunity clause as [HIRANYAKASHIPU].

The news obviously hadn't got around about the claw back clause. This time VISHNU changed himself into a Boar, just in time to stop the Demon from dragging the whole world into the primordial ocean.

Tsk tsk and tusk tusk — another defunct demon.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Hiranyaksha graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Hiranyaksha movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Hiranyaksha statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Hiranyaksha. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
