Sri Narasimha Nakha Stuthi

After reading Ms.Shyla’s comment on  Narasimha Jayanthi, that one should read Narasimha Nakha Stuthi, I searched for the same. I found the lyrics written in Sanskrit, and couldn’t actually say the words. It has been a couple of decades since I had learnt Sanskrit. So, attached below are the lyrics in Sanskrit and also an online recital. Not sure who has sung this, but many thanks for posting the same.

And the lyrics are:

Attached is the English translation. I have tried my best to do so, just to assist in reciting the same.

paantvasmaanpuruhuutavairi balavan matanga madyatghata
kumbokshadrivipatanadikapatu pratyeka vajrayitah
shriimadkanteeravasyaprathathasunakhara daritaratiduura
pradvastha dvanta shanta pravitata mansa bavita buuribhagaih

lakshmiikantasamantatopikalayan naiveshitus te samam
pashyamittamavastu duuritarato pastham raso yastamah
yadroshakkhara dakshanetrakutila prantopitagni spurat
khadhyotopamavishpulinga basita brahmeshashakrotkarah

P.S: You can find the meaning of this sloka here at harekrisna site”

    After seeing the great Vayustuti composition by Sri Trivikrama panditacharya, Sri Madhwacharya wrote these two slokas and orderd that these should be recited before and after vayustuti. For full text of Hari Vayustuti and some other stotras, you may visit Uttaradi matha official web site. They have given them as free e-book by name ‘Mantra stotra sangraha’
