Nrusimha Ashtakam
[Octet addressed to Lord Narasimha]
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[Here is a remarkable octet addressed to Lord Narasimha. I have taken this from vedicmantrasgayatris.wordpress.com/about-vedic-prayers-mantras-gayatris/.This stotra along with meaning given by Mr. Stephen Knapp has been reproduced in various web sites. My translation is slightly different.)

1. Dhyayami narasimhakyam
Brahma vedantagocaram
Bhavabdhi taranopayam
Sankha cakra dharam param

I meditate on Narasimha,
Who is realized by Brahma and Vedas,
Who is the method to cross the sea of life,
And who holds the divine conch and holy wheel.

2. Nilam ramam ca paribhuya kripa rasena
Stambhe svasakti managham vinidhaya deva
Prahlada rakshana vidhai yati kripa te
Sri narasimha paripalaya mam cha bhaktam

With your sense of mercy you protected Nila Devi and Rama,
And for saving Prahlada, Oh God, out of your mercy,
You came out of the pillar, with all your great sinless and chaste state,
And Oh Narasimha, please take care of me who is your devotee.

3. Indraadi deva nikarasya kirita koti
Pratyupta ratna prati bimbita pada padma
kalpaanta kala ghana garjana tulya nada
Sri narasimha paripalaya mam cha bhaktam

Your lotus like feet which has the glitter of gems,
Reflected the shine of billions of crowns of Indra and other devas,
And your great roaring was similar to the thunder at time of deluge,
And Oh Narasimha, please look after me who is your devotee.

4. Prahlada posha pralayarka samana vaktra
Hoom-kara nirjita nisachara vrunda nada
Sri-narada muni sangha sugiyamana
Sri narasimha paripalaya mam cha bhaktam

You are the saviour of Prahlada, your mouth is like the Sun at deluge,
Your sound "Hoom" makes the groups of nocturnal animals shiver,
And you enjoy the company of the great sage Narada,
And Oh Narasimha, please look after me who is your devotee.

5. Ratrin charadri jatarat parisramsya mana raktam
Nipiya parikalpita saantara mala
Vidravita-akhila suro ugra nrsimha rupam
Sri narasimha paripalaya mam ca bhaktam

You tear apart the nocturnal animals descending the mountain to drink blood,
You squeeze out the dirt which have settled inside us,
And your terrifying form of Narasimha makes the world tremble.
And Oh Narasimha, please look after me who is your devotee.

6. Yogindra, yoga pariraksaka, deva deva
Dinaarthi hari vibhava agama geeyamana
Maam veeksya dinam asaranyam aganya-silam
Sri narasimha paripalaya mam ca bhaktam

You are the king and protector of yoga, You are god of gods,
You remove all the sufferings and are worshipped by Vedas and Brihaspathi,
And you please see me, who does not have a home or good qualities,
And Oh Narasimha, please look after me who is your devotee.

7. Prahlada soka vinivarana Bhadra simha
Naktan charendra mada khandana vira simha
Indraadi devajana sanganuta pada padma
Sri narasimha paripalaya mam ca bhaktam

You are the protector lion who removed the sorrow of Prahlada,
You are the valorous one, who when exuberant tear apart everything,
And You are one whose feet is surrounded by Indra and other devas,
And Oh Narasimha, please look after me who is your devotee.

8. Jnanena kechit avalambya padambhujam they,
Kechit sukarma nikarena pare ca bhaktya
Muktim gatah khalu janah kripaya murare
sri narasimha paripalaya mam ca bhaktam

Your lotus like feet is depended upon by some due to their wisdom,
Others due to good acts done as well their great devotion,
And please take them mercifully, oh killer of Mura to salvation,
And Oh Narasimha, please look after me who is your devotee.
