Remarks/ Extra Information:

This song was recorded sometime in mid to late 1970s to early/mid 1980s. This song was from the Golden Avatara tape Nrsimha bhajans which were a collection of Nrsimha prayer (namaste narasimhaya) from all over the world. However, there was a nice recording of this song. It was definitely worth noting here.

 

The rendering of this song is in Raga Bhimphalasi in Visva Vandita Tala.

 

Verse 5, in some versions, is sung as hiranyaka nisudhana.
