Narasimha Chaturdasi
Lord Narasimha's Appearance Day Festival

All glories to Lord Narasimhadeva! - who is the Lord of Prahlada Maharaja and, like the honeybee, is always engaged in beholding the lotus-like face of the goddess of fortune.

om namo bhagavate narasimhaya

namas tejas-tejase avir-avirbhava

vajra-nakha vajra-damshtra karmashayan

randhaya randhaya tamo grasa grasa om svaha.

Abhayam abhayam atmani bhuyishtha om ksraum.


"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 demon-like 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-Bhagavatam, 5.18.8)
