namas te narasimhaya
I offer my respects to Lord Narasimha who gives joy to Prahlada Maharaja and whose nails destroy the stonelike demon Hiranyakasipu.
ito nrisimhah parato nrisimho
yato yato yami tato nrisimhah
bahir nrisimho hridaye nrisimho
nrisimham adim saranam prapadye
Lord Nrisimha is here and also there. Wherever I go Lord Nrisimha is there. He is in the heart and is outside as well. I take shelter of Lord Nrisimha, the origin of all things and the supreme refuge.
tava kara-kamala-vare nakham adbhuta-sringam
kesava dhrita-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 a wasp is easily crushed, you easily destroyed the wasplike demon with the nails of Your beautiful lotus hands.
