Sri Shanaiscara-krta Sri Narasimha Stuti From the Bhavishya Purana
Introduction by Payonidhi das (ISKCON Seshadripuram)
Everyone is afraid of the malefic planet Shani (Saturn) because generally he is associated with extreme sorrow and suffering. However, Shanideva himself has devised a way of solving this problem by obtaining the blessings of Lord Nrsimha. Shani made an agreement with the Lord that he would never trouble those who recite his Nrsimha Stuti when they are facing troubles related to dvādaśa -a ṣṭ ama-pañcama (a situation where Shani-kata lasts for 7½ births) [Sade Saati]. If one recites with devotion Shani’s Sri Nrsimha Stuti, especially on Shanivara (Saturday) and when Shani graha (planet) comes to 12-8-5 Janma Rasi 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.
sulabho bhakti yuktānāṁ durdarśo duṣṭa cetasāṁ | ananya gatikānām ca prabhu bhaktaika -vatsala ḥ śanaiścara tatra nṛ si ṁ ha- deva cakārāmala -citta-v ṛ ti ḥ | pra ṇ amya ṣ a ṣṭāṅgam aśeśa -lok a kirīta nīrājita pāda -padmam || 1 || Lord Nrsimhadeva is easily accessible to the devotees and punishes those who are evil-minded. He is the saviour for those who are helpless who desire to seek refuge in Him. 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, Shanideva prostrated and prayed (in the court of Brahma).
śrī śanir - uvāc a – yat pāda -pankaja- raja paramādharena sa ṁ sevitam sakala kalmaśa rāśī - nāśam | kalyā ṇ a kārakam aśe ṣ anijānugānam | sa tvam n ṛ si ṁ ha mayi dehi k ṛ pā -valokam ||2|| Sri Shanideva said –
By the mercy of the dust of Your lotus feet which destroy a multitude of sins, grant infinite auspiciousness to Your devotee who always worships Your lotus feet with devotion. O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side- long glance.
sarvatra cancalatayā sthitayāpi lak ṣ myā ḥ | brahmādi -vandya- padayā stirayānya sevi || pādāravinda -yugala ṁ paramā -dharena | sa tvam n ṛ si ṁ ha mayi dehi k ṛ pā valokam||3||
Your lotus feet are worshipped by Goddess Laksmi, even though She is fickle by nature ( cancala ) and by Lord Brahma
and Lord Shiva whose feet are worthy of worship with devotion. O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.
yad rūpam āgama - śira ḥ pratipādhyamādhya | ādhyātmikādi paritāpa haram vicintyam || yogīśvarair apathagākhila do ṣ a sa ṅ ghai ḥ | sa tvam n ṛ si ṁ ha mayi dehi k ṛ pā -valokam ||4||
By contemplating or meditating upon Your appearance, which is expounded in the Vedas extensively, the best of the saints are liberated from the three-fold miseries and from all misfortunes. O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.
prahlāda bhakta vacasā harir āvirāsa | stambhe hira ṇ yakaśipu ṁ ya udhārabhāva ḥ || urvau nidhāya udharam nakhārai dadhāra | sa tvam n ṛ si ṁ ha mayi dehi k ṛ pā -valokam ||5||
By the word of His devotee named Prahlada, Lord Hari, who is generous and kind, appeared from a pillar and by placing Hiranyakasipu on His thighs split open the his stomach with His nails. O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.
yo naija bhakta ṁ analāmbudhi bhūdharogra | ś ṛṇ ga- prapāta viśa dhamti sarīsu pebhya ḥ | sarvātmaka ḥ parama- kāru ṇ iko rarak ṣ a | sa tvam n ṛ si ṁ ha mayi dehi k ṛ pā -valokam ||6||
You protected your own devotee Prahlada from a raging fire, the deep ocean, from falling from a tall mountain peak, poison, a mad elephant and the fangs of poisonous serpents. You are omnipresent and supremely generous. O Lord
Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.
yannirvikāra para - rūpa vicintanena | yogīśvarā viśaya sāgara vīta rāgā ḥ ||
viśrāmtim āpura - vināśa vatī ṁ parākhyā ṁ | sa tvam n ṛ si ṁ ha mayi dehi k ṛ pā -valokam ||7||
By meditating upon He whose great form is devoid of imperfections, the best of the saints attained liberation from the ocean of materialistic attachments and obtained unmitigated salvation. O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.
yad rūpam - ugra parimardana bhāva śāli | sa ṁ cintanena sakalāgha vināśa kāri | bhūta jvara graha samudbhava bhīti nāśam | sa tvam n ṛ si ṁ ha mayi dehi k ṛ pā -valokam ||8||
By meditating upon He whose form is fearsome, all peace, happiness and prosperity can be obtained, all sins can be obliterated, the fear arising from evil spirits, fevers and unfavorable planetary positions can be removed, O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.
yasyottama ṁ y aśa umā -patim padma-janma | śakrādi daivata sabhāsu samasta - gītam || śaktaiva sarvaśa - mala praśamaika dak ṣ am | sa tvam n ṛ si ṁ ha mayi dehi k ṛ pā -valokam ||9||
Your transcendental fame is sung gloriously in all the divine assemblies of Shiva, Brahma and Indra, etc. and your power is steadfast in wiping out all impurities, O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.
evam śrutvā stuti ṁ deva ḥ śaninā ṁ kalpitā ṁ hari ḥ | uvāca brahma v ṛ ndasta śani ṁ ta ṁ bhakta-vatsala ḥ ||10||
On listening to the heartfelt prayer composed by Shanideva in the assembly of Lord Brahma, Lord Hari, who is ever compassionate to His devotees, spoke to Shanideva as follows.
śrī n ṛ si ṁ ha uvāca – prasannoham śane tubhya ṁ | varam varaya śobhana ṁ || ya ṁ vāñchasi tameva tvam | sarva- loka hitāvaham ||11||
Śrī N ṛ si ṁ ha said – O Shani, I am pleased with your devotion. Whatever you desire that will benefit the world, ask for that kind of boon and I will grant it.
śrī śanir uvāca – n ṛ si ṁ ha tvam mayi k ṛ pām kuru deva dayā -nidhe | mad vāsaras tava prīti - kara syat devatā -pate ||12|| mat k ṛ tam tvat param stotra ṁ ś ṛṇ vanti ca pa ṭ anti ca | sarvān kāman pūrayetās teśām tva ṁ loka- bhāvana ḥ ||13|| Sri Shanideva replied –
O Lord Nrsimha, O reservoir of compassion, please be kind to me. O Lord of all gods, let my week-day (Saturday) be Your favorite day. O Purifier of all the worlds, may You fulfill the
desires of all those who listen to or read this great prayer to You composed by me.”
śrī n ṛ si ṁ ha uvāca – tataivāstu śaneham vai rak ṣ o-bhuvana sa ṁ sthita ḥ | bhakta kāmān pūrayiśye tva ṁ mamaika vaca ḥ ś ṛṇ u || tvat k ṛ tam mat param stotram ya ḥ pa ṭ ecch ṛṇ u yāccha ya ḥ | dvādaśā ṣṭ ama janmastād bhaya ṁ māstu tasya vai ||14||
Sri Nrsimha said – O Shani, let it be so! By virtue of My being the universal protector ( rakshobuvana ), I fulfill the desires of all My devotees. Please listen to My words - let there be no fear of the twelfth and eighth birth positions (and implicitly any unfavorable birth positions) and consequent troubles from you for anyone who reads or listens to this prayer to Me composed by you.
śani narahari ṁ deva ṁ tateti pratyuvāca ha tata ḥ parama-sa ṁ tu ṣṭ o jayeti munayovadan ||15||
Then Shanideva replied to Lord Narahari that he would follow the Lord’s instructions. Then the joyful saints and sages present there (in Brahma’s assembly) responded with cries of, ‘jaya, jaya!’”.
śrī k ṛṣṇ a uvāca – itam śanaiścarasyāta n ṛ si ṁ ha deva | samvādam etat stavana ṁ ca mānava ḥ || ś ṛṇ oti ya ḥ śrāvayate ca bhaktyā sarvānyābhī ṣṭ āni ca vindate dhruvam || 16||
Sri K ṛ ishna told Dharmaraja, “Whoever listens to or recites this conversation between Shanideva and Lord Nrsimha in the form of this prayer of devotion will definitely have all desires fulfilled and will always rejoice.”
iti śrī bhavi ṣ yottara purā ṇ e rak ṣ obhuvana mahātme śrī śanaiścara k ṛ ta śrī n ṛ si ṁ ha stuti sampūr ṇ am
Thus ends the prayers offered to the universal protector Sri Narasimha by the great soul Shani from the Bhavishya Purana
