By Payonidhi das

We have just found these prayers to Lord Narasimha on the Acaraya folio, they are prayers offered by Saturn Personified, Sri Sani deva, Saturn is so much feared that in India on Saturday some persons collect donations for his worship in a bucket with his deity form, covered in some kind of oil. Actually he is great devotee of Lord Narasimhadeva. Many devotees are spending much money on astrology and yajnas to counteract the influence of inauspicious planets or constellations, Lord Narasimha protects one from the influence of so-called bad planets and make them auspiscious for ones devotional planets.Sr Sani is obviously a great devotee of Lord Narasimha as is evident from this text.

I just travelled with a devotee to South India who was going to spend 1000th of dollars for having bad planetary influence counteracted.There is no need simply please take shelter of the Lotus feet of Lord Narasimhadeva as shown bySri Sani. Saturn is the day of Lord Narasimhadeva and a perfect day to worship Lord Narasimha.

Śrī Śanaiścara-kṛta Śrī Narasiṁha Stuti

Everyone is afraid of the malefic planet Śani because generally he is associated with extreme sorrow and suffering. However, Śanideva himself has devised a way of solving this problem by obtaining the blessings of Lord Nṛsiṁha.

Shani made an agreement with the Lord that he would never trouble those who recite his Nṛsiṁha Stuti when they are facing troubles related to dvādaśa-aṣṭama-pañcama (a situation where Śani-kāta lasts for 7 1/2 births)

If one recites with devotion Śani’s Śrī Nṛsiṁha Stuti, especially on Śanivāra (Saturdays) and when Śani graha comes to 12-8-5 Janma Rāśi or 10th AL, one will please the Lord who is the Supersoul of Shanaishchara and the Lord will remove all obstacles and suffering and bless His devotee.

When the demigods of innumerable planets bow down to His lotus feet, the bright jewels from their crowns are reflected on His toenails which gives the impression that lamps are being waved in front of them.

Unto His lotus feet, Śanideva prostrated and prayed (in the court of Brahmā).

iti Sri bhavisyottara purana raksobhuvana mahÀtme Sri
Sanaiscara krta Sri Narasimha stuti sampĂŒrnam

Thus ends the prayers offered to the universal protector Sri Nrsimha by the great soul Sani.

actually whoever translated it forgot ” iti Sri Bhavisyottara Purana”, so it is from the Bhavisyotarra Purana

I found this nice vers from that Purana too:

prema-bhaktau yadi sraddha mat prasadam yadicchasi
tada narada bhavena radhaya radhako bhava

Shri Krishna says: O Narada!! If you have faith in the process of prema-bhakti and wish to attain my favour, then please become the worshipper of Srimati Radharani in the mood of ecstatic emotion. (Bhavisyottara Purana)

It would be nice to know if there is a good english translation of this Purana

5 Bhakta Piyush

I offer my respectful obeisances unto Lord Nrsimhadeva, the source of all power. O my Lord who possesses nails and teeth just like thunderbolts, kindly vanquish our demonlike desires for fruitive activity in this material world. Please appear in our hearts and drive away our ignorance so that by Your mercy we may become fearless in the struggle for existence in this material world.

Srimad Bhagavatam 5.18.18

May there be good fortune throughout the universe, and may all envious persons be pacified. May all living entities become calm by practicing bhakti-yoga, for by accepting devotional service they will think of each other’s welfare. Therefore let us all engage in the service of the supreme transcendence, Lord Sri Krishna, and always remain absorbed in thought of Him.

Srimad Bhagavatam 5.18.19

these verses you quoted is the essence of our prayers to Lord Narasimhadeva to remove anarthas to become prorperly qualified to worship Sri Sri Radha and Krsna under the guidance of Sri Guru and Gauranga.

Five Prayers to Lord Narasimha

by Bhaktivinoda Thakura

Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura has written five beautiful prayers in “Sri Navadvipa Bhava Taranga” for receiving the mercy of Lord Narasimha. These prayers are certainly assurance to all sincere devotees that the worship of Lord Narasimha is purely in the line of aspiring love and devotion to Sri Sri Radha and Krsna. Those prayers are as follows.

e dusta hrdaye kama adi ripu chaya

kutinati pratisthasa sathya sada raya

hrdaya-sodhana ara krsnera vasana

nrsimha-carane mora ei to’ kamana

Within my sinful heart the six enemies headed by lust perpetually reside, as well as duplicity, the desire for fame, plus sheer cunning. At the lotus feet of Lord Narasimha, I hope that He will mercifully purify my heart and give me the desire to serve Lord Krsna.

kandiya nrsimha-pade magibo kakhana

nirapade navadvipe jugala-bhajana

bhaya bhaya paya yan’ra darsane se hari

prasanna hoibo kabe more daya kari

Weeping, I will beg at the lotus-feet of Lord Narasimha for the benediction of worshipping Radha and Krsna in Navadvipa, perfectly safe and free from all difficulties. When will this Lord Hari, Whose terrible form strikes fear into fear itself, ever become pleased and show me His mercy?

yadyapi bhisana murti dusta-jiva-prati

prahladadi krsna-bhakta-jane bhadra ati

kabe va prasanna ho’ye sa krpa-vacane

nirbhaya karibe ei mudha akincane

Even though Lord Narasimha is terrifying toward the sinful souls, He offers great auspiciousness unto the devotees of Lord Krsna headed by Prahlada Maharaja. When will He be pleased to speak words of compassion unto me, a worthless fool, and thereby make me fearless?

svacchande baiso he vatsa sri-gauranga-dhame

jugala-bhajana hau rati hau name

mama bhakta-krpa-bale vighna jabe dura

suddha cite bhajo radha-krsna-rasa-pura

He will say, “Dear child! Sit sown freely and live happily here in Sri Gauranga-dhama. May you nicely worship the Divine Couple, and may you develop loving attachment for Their Holy Names. By the mercy of My devotees, all obstacles are cast far away. With a purified heart, just perform the worship of Radha and Krsna, for such worship overflows with sweet nectar.”

ei boli’ kabe mora mastaka-upara

sviya sri-carana harse dharibe isvara

amani jugala-preme sattvika vikare

dharaya lutibo ami sri-nrsimha-dvare

Saying this, will that Lord delightedly place His own divine lotus-feet upon my head? I will experience sublime love for the Divine Couple Radha-Krsna and undergo the ecstatic transformations called sattvika. Falling on the ground, I will roll about at the door of Sri Narasimha’s temple.

(Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, - “Sri Navadvipa Bhava Taranga”, 36-40)

The only reason we offere prayers for protection for ourself ,the spiritual master and others, is to be abel to serve Srila Prabhupada and Krsna without obstacels.Lord Nrsinhadeva certainly appears in the holy Dhama of Navadvipa to protect the devotees of Lord Caitanya, and the Yogapith (Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura installed Laxmi Narasimha there) and also He has appeared in His Ugra Narasimha form in ISKCON Mayapure, but according to some vaisnavas Lord Narasimha is certainly also there to take darshan of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, The Pancha Tattva and Radha Madhava.Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Prabhupada gave the following Kavacha for the protection of sannyasis he had send to the west:
