Sri Nrisimha Pranama
(sung after arati)

by Srila Narottama dasa Thakura

namas te narasimhaya
prahladahlada-dayine
hiranyakashipor vakshah
shila-tanka-nakhalaye

ito nshimhah parato nrisimho
yato yato yami tato nrisimhah
bahir nrisimho hridaye nrisimho
nrisimham adim sharanam prapadye

I offer my obeisances to Lord Nrisimha-deva, who is always giving bliss to His devotees like Prahlada Maharaja and chiselling at the hearts of demons like Hiranyakashipu. The devotee always sees Lord Nrisimha everywhere. Lord Nrisimha is within and without. Therefore let us all take shelter of Lord Nrisimha.


Prayer to Lord Nrisimha

tava kara-kamala-vare nakham adbhuta-sringham
dalita-hiranyakashipu-tanu-bhringam
keshava dhrita-narahari-rupa jaya jagadisha hare

O my Lord Nrisimha, Your hands are very beautiful like the lotus flower, but with Your long nails You have ripped apart the wasp Hiranyakashipu. Unto You, Lord of the universe, I offer my humble obeisances.

jaya nrisimhadeva, jaya nrisimhadeva
jaya prahlada maharaja, jaya prahlada maharaja
