Chapter 14: Song Practice (II)

 

After learning the Gurvastakam, it is only appropriate to learn the Nrsimha prayers. While there are variations as to which song is defined as the Nrsimha prayers, this song is the song that begins with the first words Namaste Narasimhaya. There is one asthayi and one antara form. The asthayi is repeated for the first two verses. The antara consumed the third verse.

 

Sometimes, the asthayi or antara might be quite lengthy. Therefore, in this presentation, it may split up, as the antara is split up into two parts.
