Ahobilam Nrisimha Stotram

Ahobilam (Nrisimha) Stotram
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

This prayer extols the Narasimha deva consecrated in the Ahobila Kshethra. "Ahobila Kshetra is a group of temples located on the Ahobila Hills (also known as Garudadri or Garudachala and Vedachala). The presiding deity being Ahobila Nrsimha Swamy or Prahaladavarada. Lord Nrsimha Swamy in Swamyambhu (self manifested form) is located generally in a rock cavern (Bila) as he is personified as half lion (a source of infinite energy as paramatma) and half man (limited energy of a soul)."

Pakshindra shaila bhavanam bhava nasham eesham
Gokshira sara ghana sara patira varnam
Vande kripaa nidhim ahobala narasimham

I salute the treasure of mercy, the Narasimha of Ahobila,
Who is the royal swan playing in the pond of Lakshmi's glances,
Who lives on Garudadhri*, Who is the god destroying re birth,
Who is the colour of cow's milk, camphor and snow.
* Another name for Ahobila.

I salute the treasure of mercy, the Narasimha of Ahobila,
Who does not have beginning, death, birth, change or definition,
