Namas te narasimhaya praladahlada- dayine
Hiranyakasipor vaksah- sils- tanka- nakalaye
Ito nrsimhah parato nrsimho
Yato yato yami tato nrsimho
Bahir nrsimho hrdaye nrsimho
Nrsimham adim saranam prapadye
Tava kara -kamala- vare nakham adbuta- srngam
Kesava dhrta- nara-hari-rupa jaya jagadisa hare
I offer my obeisances to Lord Nrsimhadeva, who gives joy to
Prahlada Maharaja and whose nails are like chisels on the stonelike
Chest of Hiranyakasipu. Lord Nrsimha is here and also there.
Wherever I go Lord Nrsimha is there. He is in the heart and is
Outside as well. I surrender to Lord Nrsimha, The origin of all things
And The supreme refuge.
O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! O Lord Hari who has assumed
The form of a half-man, half-lion! All glories to you! With the
Wonderfully sharp nails on your beautiful lotus hands. You have
Ripped apart the wasplike body of Hiranyakasipu.
