Nrusimha Maha Mantra
Malolan2 Ugram Veeram Maha Vishnum
[O' Very Fierce and Brave Great Vishnu]
Jwalantham Sarvatho Mukam
[Your intense fire and heat permeate everywhere]
Nrusimham Bheeshanam Bhadhram
[O' Nrusimha you are everywhere]
Mrithyor Mrithyum Namamyaham
[You are the death of death, Salutations to Thee]

Nrusimha Saranagathi (Prapathi) Manthra
Nrusimha Prapatti is an all time great sloka. Nrusimha worship entails a lot of rules about purity, hygiene etc.
In Nrusimha Prapatti, we surrender to LakshmiNrusimha wholly and unconditionally. He becomes our Mother, Father, Brother, Friend, Lord, everything. So, there can be no mistakes or flaws when we chant it because we are just His instruments doing His Bidding.
This sloka is effective for planetray afflictions(especially Shani dosham). It confers all forms of welfare. One can chant it anywhere (except in restrooms). One can chant it during travel, sitting in a class, meeting. It does not have to be a pooja room. Also, one may even chant it before bath. It is a slokam where LakshmiNarasimhar embraces us wholly.
Nrusimha is best worshipped as:
  • Swami LakshmiNrusimha - all beaming and happy with MahaLakshmi on His Lap.
  • Next is the YogaNrusimha form, where He is in a divine trance. This form confers mental balance, supression of undue desires, a spiritual personality etc.
  • The third form of Nrusimha by Himself as Ugra Nrusimha is very powerful to be handled by individuals. This worship is best left to temples.
In any form though,Nrusimha is Mercy, Grace, and Power in one potent Persona. Viva Nrusimha! Pallandu, Pallandu,---- Vaazhga,Nrusimha!

Yatho Yatho Yahihi, Thatho Nrusimha

-- The Nrusimha Saranagathi (Prapathi) manthra composed by Lord Sri Ramachandra Himself in His incarnation as the son of Dasaratha . During his visit to Ahobila Kshethram on His way to Lanka for fulfilling His Avathara Kaaryam He visited Ahobila Kashethram and offered His saranagathy to Sri Lakshmi Narasimhan and recieved the Ahobilam Lord's blessings to complete His mission at Lanka.
