TRANSLATION

1) I am meditating on the Supreme Person known as Nrsimha who is attainable through Vedanta philosophy. He is the carrier of the conch and the Sudarsana disc, and He is the only means for crossing the ocean of birth and death.

 

2) You mercifully protect Nila and Rama with Your chaste, spiritual internal potency. You also extend Your protective energy over Prahlada Maharaja. O Nrsimha please protect me too, for I am also trying to be Your devotee.

 

3) Your lotus feet are comparable in effulgence to the brilliance of the sum total of the jewelry possessed by all the demigods. Your roaring is like that of the thundering clouds at the universal dissolution. O Nrsimha please protect me too, for I am also trying to be Your devotee.

 

4) You are the maintainer of Prahlada Maharaja and Your open mouth is exactly as the sun which causes the destruction of the universe. O Lord, Your grunts frightens all the roaming predators of the night. You are always beautifully glorified by sages such as Narada Muni. O Nrsimha please protect me too, for I am also trying to be Your devotee.

 

5) O Nrisimha, Your divine form is horrifying. You are tearing apart all the wild animals descending from the caves of the mountains to terrify and to drink the blood of everyone. O Nrisimha please protect me too, for I am also trying to be Your devotee.

 

6) O King of the yogis, Lord of lords and the protector of the process of yoga. You are the remover of the sufferings of those who are dear to You. Your wonderful form is described in the agamas. Please glance upon me who is without shelter and possesses no good qualities. O Nrsimha please protect me too, for I am also trying to be Your devotee.

 

7) You are the auspicious lion that dispersed the grief of Prahlada Maharaja. O Powerful Lion, who tears everything apart in an intoxicated mood, You are the Lord of the ferocious predators of the dark night. Your lotus feet are surrounded by all divine and pious personalities beginning with Lord Indra. O Nrsimha please protect me too, for I am also trying to be Your devotee.

 

8) Some people try to embrace Your lotus feet through the process of knowledge. Others try by performing pious activities and yet others by the path of devotion. O Murari by Your mercy all of them attain liberation. O Nrsimha please protect me too, for I am also trying to be Your devotee.
