Shri Lakshmi Narasimha Pancharatnam

Tvatprabhu jeeva priyamich chasichetu

Narahari poojaam kuru satatham

Pratibimbaa lankruti drutikushaloo

Bimbaalan kriti maananutee

cheto bringa bramasivrutaa

bhavamaruboomo virasaayaa

bhaja bhaja lakshmi narasimha

Anaga padasarasija makarandham

If you wish to earn the affection of your master then always worship the man-lion (form of the lord). One who is keen on seeing an adorned image (in a mirror), (always) decorates the object (first). O mind-bee! you wander in vain in the worthless desert of mundane existence. Entertain yourself incessantly with the honey from the pure lotus-feet of (lord) Lakúmènarasimha.

Shuktau Rajathath pratibhaajaathaa

katakaa dyartha samarthaa chethu

dukhamayee te samsruthiresaa

Nivrutidaane nipunaa syaatu

cheto bringa bramasivrutaa

bhavamaruboomo virasaayaa

bhaja bhaja lakshmi narasimha

Anaga padasarasija makarandham

If the silver that appears in the shell could be made into articles like bracelet etc., then this sorrowful worldly life of yours could also confer eternal-bliss. O mind-bee! you wander in vain in the worthless desert of life-circle. Entertain again and again with the honey from the pure lotus-feet of (lord) Lakúmè-nsarasomha.

Aaakruti saamya chaal malikusume

sthalanali natva bhramama karo

Gandhara saaviha kimu vidyeete

Viphalam bhraamyasi vrusavirasesmin

cheto bringa bramasivrutaa

bhavamaruboomo virasaayaa

bhaja bhaja lakshmi narasimha

Anaga padasarasija makarandham

You have mistaken the silk-cotton flower for a lotus grown on earth due to similarity in form. Are fragrance and sweetness present in it? You hover around this in vain, which is devoid of sweetness. O mind-bee! you wander in vain in the worthless desert of mundane existence. Resort again and again to the honey from the pure lotus-feet of (lord) Lakúmènarasimha.

Srakchandana vanitaadeen vishayaam

sukhandaan matvaa tatra viharase

Gandhaphalee sadru shaa nanu te mee

Bhogaanantara dhukha kru tasyahu

cheto bringa bramasivrutaa

bhavamaruboomo virasaayaa

bhaja bhaja lakshmi narasimha

Anaga padasarasija makarandham

Thinking that objects of enjoyment such as a garland of flowers, sandal and women as giving (permanent) happiness you amuse yourself in them. They are like the Ketaki flowers, causing grief after enjoyment. O mind-bee! you wander in vain in the worthless desert of mundane existence. Resort again and again to the honey of the pure lotus-feet of (lord) Lakúmènarasimha.

Thava hita mekam vachanam vakshye

Runu sukhakaamo yadi sathatham

svapne drustam sakalam hi mrusha

jaagrati chasmara tadvaditi

cheto bringa bramasivrutaa

bhavamaruboomo virasaayaa

bhaja bhaja lakshmi narasimha

Anaga padasarasija makarandham

I shell tell you something beneficial. Listen! If you are desirous of eternal happiness. All things seen in a dream are untrue; you bear in mind that all things seen in the wakeful state are also alike. O mind-bee! you wander in vain in the fruitless desert of mundane existence. Entertain again and again with the honey of the pure lotus-feet of (lord) Lakúmènarasimha.

Om Namo Naaraayanaaya

Om namo venkatesaaya

  1. I know little bit about Narasimha (nrisingha),an Abatar of Vishnu. The back ground and details of Lakshmi Narasimha ( Narasimha with Lakhmi on his lap) is not known to me. I have visited Yadagirigutta temple in Andhra pradesh and also I worship Lakshmi Narasimha. I shall be grateful if a bit elaboration is mailed to me.

  2. om sai om sai om sai om sai om sai om sai sadguru sai maharaj ki jai sadguru sai maharaj ki jai sadguru sai maharaj ki jai jai jai sai jai jai sai om sai om sai om sai om sai ram

    Kindly bless us – all your humble devotees save us from all problems.
