THE GLORIES OF LORD NARASIMMHA DEVA CAN NOT BE GIVEN IN A SINGLE ARTICLE. WE WILL SEE IN PARTS. TODAY, WE READ A FEW:
Lord Narasimmha Deva killed Hiranya Kasipu who is the symbol of serious material attachments and saved Prahalada from many of Hiranya’s serious tricks to kill him for worshiping Lord.
Therefore, anyone who likes to come out of material attachments should surrender to Lord Narasimmha Deva.
Once you are free from material attachments, you will be able to go closer to Krishna without fall downs. Because only our material attachments hinder our improvement in devotion to Krishna.
Therefore, for anyone who wish to grow fast in the devotion to Krishna, worship of Sri Narsimmha Deva is important.
Recite/ sing this Narsimmha Pranama every day in the evening (Or, in the morning also):
SRI NRISHIMMA PRANAMA:
Ugram Veeram Mahaa-Vishnum,
Jwalantham Sarvatho Mukham
Nrisimham Bheeshanam Bhadram
“O’ Angry and brave Maha-Vishnu, your heat and fire permeate everywhere. O Lord Narasimha, you are everywhere. You are the death of death and I surrender to You.”
namas te narasimhaya
I offer my obeisances to Lord Narasimha, who gives joy to Prahlada Maharaja and whose nails are like chisels on the stone like chest of the demon Hiranyakasipu.
ito nrsimhah parato nrsimho,
yato yato yami tato nrsimhah,
bahir nrsimho hrdaye nrsimho,
nrsimham adim saranam prapadye
“Lord Nrsimha is here and also there. Wherever I go Lord Narasimha is there. He is in the heart and is outside as well. I surrender to Lord Narasimha, the origin of all things and the supreme refuge.”
tava kara-kamala-vare nakham adbhuta-srngam,
kesava dhrta-narahari-rupa jaya jagadisa hare
“O Kesava! O Lord of the universe. O Lord Hari, who have assumed the form of half-man, half-lion! All glories to You! Just as one can easily crush a wasp between one’s fingernails, so in the same way the body of the was like demon Hiranyakasipu has been ripped apart by the wonderful pointed nails on your beautiful lotus hands.”
GLORIES OF LORD NARASIMMHA DEVA :
SRIMAD BHAGAVATHAM (5.18.7):
Sukadeva Gosvami continued: My dear King, Lord Nrisimhadeva resides in the tract of land known as Hari-varsha. In the Seventh Canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam, I shall describe to you how Prahlada Maharaja caused the Lord to assume the form of Nrisimhadeva. Prahlada Maharaja, the topmost devotee of the Lord, is a reservoir of all the good qualities of great personalities. His character and activities have delivered all the fallen members of his demoniac family. Lord Nrisimhadeva is very dear to this exalted personality. Thus Prahlada Maharaja, along with his servants and all the denizens of Hari-varsha, worships Lord Nrisimhadeva by chanting the following mantra.
SRIMAD BHAGAVATHAM (5.18.8):
I offer my respectful obeisances unto Lord Nrisimhadeva, the source of all power. O my Lord who possesses nails and teeth just like thunderbolts, kindly vanquish our demonlike desires for fruitive activity in this material world. Please appear in our hearts and drive away our ignorance so that by Your mercy we may become fearless in the struggle for existence in this material world.
SRIMAD BHAGAVATHAM (7.9.19):
Sri Prahlada Maharaja to Lord Nrsimhadeva:
My Lord Nrsimhadeva, O Supreme, because of a bodily conception of life, embodied souls neglected and not cared for by You cannot do anything for their betterment. Whatever remedies they accept, although perhaps temporarily beneficial, are certainly impermanent. For example, a father and mother cannot protect their child, a physician and medicine cannot relieve a suffering patient, and a boat on the ocean cannot protect a drowning man.
SRIMAD BHAGAVATHAM (7.9.38):
Sri Prahlada Maharaja to Lord Nrsimhadeva:
In this way, my Lord, You appear in various incarnations as a human being, an animal, a great saint, a demigod, a fish or a tortoise, thus maintaining the entire creation in different planetary systems and killing the demoniac principles. According to the age, O my Lord, You protect the principles of religion. In the age of Kali, however, You do not assert Yourself as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and therefore You are known as Triyuga, or the Lord who appears in three yugas.
5 BEAUTIFUL PRAYERS TO LORD NARASIMHA
BY SRILA BHAKTIVINODHA THAKURA IN“SRI NAVADVIPA BHAVA TARANGA
Within my sinful heart the six enemies headed by lust perpetually reside, as well as duplicity, the desire for fame, plus sheer cunning. At the lotus feet of Lord Narasimha, I hope that He will mercifully purify my heart and give me the desire to serve Lord Krsna.
Weeping, I will beg at the lotus-feet of Lord Narasimha for the benediction of worshipping Radha and Krsna in Navadvipa, perfectly safe and free from all difficulties. When will this Lord Hari, Whose terrible form strikes fear into fear itself, ever become pleased and show me His mercy?
Even though Lord Narasimha is terrifying toward the sinful souls, He offers great auspiciousness unto the devotees of Lord Krsna headed by Prahlada Maharaja. When will He be pleased to speak words of compassion unto me, a worthless fool, and thereby make me fearless?
He will say, “Dear child! Sit sown freely and live happily here in Sri Gauranga-dhama. May you nicely worship the Divine Couple, and may you develop loving attachment for Their Holy Names. By the mercy of My devotees,all obstacles are cast far away. With a purified heart, just perform the worship of Radha and Krsna, for such worship overflows with sweet nectar.”
Saying this, will that Lord delightedly place His own divine lotus-feet upon my head? I will experience sublime love for the Divine Couple Radha-Krsna and undergo the ecstatic transformations called sattvika. Falling on the ground, I will roll about at the door of Sri Narasimha’s temple.
Let Lord Narsimmha Deva helps all of you in growing your devotion to Krishna.
