Nrsimha-Stuti

 

sri-nrsimha, jaya nrsimha, jaya jaya nrsimha
prahladesa jaya padma-mukha-padma-bhrnga

All glories to Nrsimhadeva! All glories to Nrsimhadeva, who is the Lord of Prahlada Maharaja and, like the honeybee, is always engaged in beholding the lotuslike face of the goddess of fortune. [Cc. Madhya 8.5]

vag-isa yasya vadane lakshmir yasya ca vaksasi
yasyaste hrdaye samvit tam nrsimham aham bhaje

Lord Nrsimhadeva is always asisted by Sarasvati, the goddess of learning, and He is always embracing to His chest the goddess of fortune. The Lord is always complete in knowledge within Himself. Let us offer obeisances unto Nrsimhadeva. [from Sridhara Svami's commentary on Bhag. 10.87.1]

prahlada-hrdayahladam bhaktavidya-vidaranam
sarad-indu-rucim vande praindra-vadanam harim

Let me offer my obeisances unto Lord Nrsimhadeva, who is always enlightening Prahlada Maharaja within his heart and who always kills the nescience that attacks the devotees. His mercy is distributed like moonshine, and His face is like that of a lion. Let me offer my obeisances unto Him again and again. [from Sridhara Svami's commnetary on Bhag. 1.1.1]

See Srimad Bhagavatam, Canto 7, Ch. 9 for Prahlada Maharaja's prayers to Nrsimhadeva.
