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

I offer my obeisances to Lord Narasimha, who gives joy to Prahlada Maharaja and whose nails are like chisels on the stonelike chest of the demon Hiranyakasipu.

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

Lord Nrsimha is here and also there. Wherever I go Lord Nrsimha is there. He is within the heart and is outside as well. I surrender to Lord Nrsimha, the origin of all things and the supreme refuge.

tava kara-kamala vare
nakham adbhuta-shringam
dalita-hiranyakashipu-tanu bhrigam 
keshava dhrita-narahari-rupa
jaya jagadisha 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 wasplike demon Hiranyakasipu has been ripped apart by the wonderful pointed nails on Your beautiful lotus hands.

Sri Srimad Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja

We offer nrsimha-pranama:

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

This is atma-niksepa, do you understand? This is atma-niksepa. This direction Nrisimha, ito nrisimhah parato nrisimho. In this direction is Nrisimha, in that direction is Nrsimha. All directions is Nrisimha. Do you understand? yato yato yami tato nrisimhah, wherever I go there is Nrsimha. Do you follow me? Yato yato yami, wherever I go there is Nrisimha... bahir nrisimho hrdaye nrisimho, within and without Nrisimha, bahir means without; hrdaye - in the heart, within; within and without Nrisimha, nrisimham adim sharanam prapadye. In this way I am completely surrendered unto adi nrsimha, original Nrisimha. Do you understand? That is atma-niksepa. This is atma-niksepa, do you understand?


And Nrisimhadev gives protection, yes, yes, bhakti... whatever obstacles come in the path of bhakti Nrisimhadev gives protection because we are completely dedicated unto Him. Therefore we offer this pranam mantra to Lord Nrsimhadeva.

audio Prayers to Lord Nrsimhadeva by the Demigods. Recited by Srila Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja on Lord Nrsimhadeva's Appearance Day, 1995. Time: 1:37 mins


Sri Srimad Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja

This is the prayer offered by the demigods to the Supreme Lord in the prison house of Kamsa when Krsna was about to appear in the womb of Devaki, this is the prayer, demigods' prayer:

matsyasva-kacchapa-nrsimha-varaha-hamsa-
rajanya-vipra-vibudhesu krtavatarah
tvam pasi nas tri-bhuvanam ca yathadhunesa
bharam bhuvo hara yaduttama vandanam te

O supreme controller, Your Lordship previously accepted incarnations as a fish, a horse, a tortoise, Narasimhadeva, a boar, a swan, Lord Ramacandra, Parasurama and, among the demigods, Vamanadeva, to protect the entire world by Your mercy. Now please protect us again by Your mercy by diminishing the disturbances in this world. O Krsna, best of the Yadus, we respectfully offer our obeisances unto You. [SB 10.2.40]

Yathadhunesa, O best of the Yadu dynasty. You appear in many, many incarnations, Matsya incarnation - fish, Kurma - tortoise incarnation, Varaha - boar incarnation, Hayagriva incarnation - horse head incarnation, Nrsimha, Hamsa, Vamana, Balarama, Ramacandra, Buddha, Kalki etc. They are all lila-avatars. All of these various lila-avatars appear here in this material world to annihilate the demons, those who are great burdens on mother earth, thereby lessen her burden, therefore we offer our obeisances to you repeatedly.
