Narasimha Nembo Devanu Lyrics – Shorter Version

Narashima2

I have posted the complete lyrics in an earlier blog post, however the shorter version was what my Mysore Ajji taught us. We are learning this song as part of our weekly group and so decided to post the shorter version.

The full lyrics is posted at the below link:

ನರಸಿಂಹ ನೆಂಬೋ ದೇವನ ನಂಬಿದಂಥ ನರರಿಗೆಲ್ಲ ವರವ ಕೊಡುವನು ||

ಓಂ ನಮಃ ಶಿವಾಯ ಎನುತಲಿ ಅಸುರ ತನ್ನ ಸುತಗೆ ಬರೆದು ತೋರಿಸೆಂದನು
ನರಹರಿಯ ನಾಮವನ್ನು ನಲಿಯುತಾರೆ ಬರೆಯುತಿರಲು
ಎಡದ ತೊಡೆಯಲಿರುವ ಶಿಶುವ ಬಡೆದು ಧರೆಗೆ ನೂಕಿದನು ನರಸಿಂಹ ||೧||

ಕಟ್ಟಿ ಕಂಭವನ್ನೇ ಉರುಳಿಸಿ ಅಸುರ ತಾನು ಪಟ್ಟದಾನೆ ಕೈಲಿ ಕೊಲ್ಲಿಸಿ
ಹರಳು ಮನೆಯ ಮಾಡಿ ಸುಟ್ಟು ಹುಲಿಯ ಬೋನಿನೊಳಗೆ ಬಿಟ್ಟು
ಯತನವಿಲ್ಲದೆ ಸುತನ ಕರೆದು ಶಕ್ತನಾಗಿ ತಾನು ನಡೆದ ನರಸಿಂಹ ||2||

ನಿನ್ನ ದೇವರಿದ್ದ ಎಡೆಯನು ಅಸುರ ತಾನು ಸುತಗೆ ಕರೆದು ತೋರಿಸೆಂದನು
ಎನ್ನ ದೇವರಿಲ್ಲದಂತ ಎಡೆಗಲುಂಟೀ ಲೋಕದೊಳಗೆ
ಕಂಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಇರುವನೆಂದು ಕೈಯ ಮುಗಿದಿ ತೋರಿದನು ನರಸಿಂಹ ||3||

ವಜ್ರಕಂಭವನ್ನು ವದೆಯಲು ದೇವ ತಾನು ಉಗ್ರ ಕೋಪವನ್ನು ತಾಳಿದ
ಕಟಕಟೆಂಬ ಧ್ವನಿಯ ಮಾಡಿ ನಖಗಳಿಂದ ಕರುಳಬಗೆದು
ಕರುಳ ಮಾಲೆಯನ್ನೇ ಧರಿಸಿ ಕಂದಭಕ್ತ ನಪ್ಪಿಕೊಂಡ ನರಸಿಂಹ ||4||

ಲಕ್ಷ್ಮಿ ನರಸಿಂಹ ಚರಿತೆಯ ಉದಯ ಕಾಲ ಉಚ್ಚರಿಸಿದಂಥ ಮನುಜಗೆ
ಅಷ್ಟ ಐಶ್ವರ್ಯಗಳನು ಪುತ್ರಸಂತಾನಗಳನು
ಕೊಟ್ಟು ರಕ್ಷಿಷುವ ನಮ್ಮ ಪುರಂದರ ವಿಠ್ಠಲ ರಾಯ ನರಸಿಂಹ ||5||

Narasimha nembo Devanu Nambidanta Nararigella Varava Koduvanu ||

Update: Sree Narasimha Jayanthi – May 9 2017

Narasimha Jayanthi celebrated on May 9 2017

Narashima2

Khambha-Narashima

This day signifies the appearance of Lord Narasimha on the planet. Lord Narasimha is the fourth and the greatest incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He is believed to have appeared to protect his devotee, Prahlada, from his father Hiranyakashyapu .

If you listen to the song ” Narashima Nembo davana” posted on youtube, there is a paragraph which explains how Lord Narashima came from the pillar. Hiranyakashyapu pointed out at a pillar in his palace and asked Prahalada whether Lord Vishnu was present in it pillar. Prahalada who was a great devotee said yes. Next, you know Hiranyakashyapu uses his Gadha and broke open the pillar and there emerged our Lord Narasimha who than slained  Hiranyakashyapu using his sharp paws.

The day signifies the triumph of good over evil and the eagerness of the lord to protect his devotees from evil.

When my Parents visited us last year, my Father recited the “Bhagavatha Purana” for three weeks at my place. The way my Dad explained this part of the Purana, brings tears to my eyes every time I listen “Narashima Nembo Devana”. The greatest mistake I made was to not record the purana. Hopefully will record the next time my Father visits us.

Here is the link for the song Narashima Nembo Devana on Lord Shri Lakshmi Narashima

Here is the link for Kayo Shree Narasimha.

About Narasimha Jayanthi: Ms. Lakshmi’s write up summary from the book  “ಭಾರತೀಯ  ಹಬ್ಬ  ಹರಿದಿನಗಳು” by ಶ್ರೀ ಶ್ರೀ ರಂಗಪ್ರಿಯ ಮಹಾದೇಷಿಕ ಸ್ವಾಮಿಗಳು.

“The pillar in evil Hiranyakashipu’s royal court, signifies the ṃērusthambha, the central backbone system. Through the central nervous system called ṣuśumna, the brilliant light emanated. The energy associated came out  in its full fierce glory  as Narasimha and later transformed into the peaceful form after the destruction of evil force.”

When is Narasimha Jayanthi celebrated?

Since the inception of this avatāram is in the evening, the worship is done in the evening.

Any sātvik food can be offered with great devotion by chanting the Narasimha Mantra. sātvik  food is that food creates an internal calmness and balance, when one consumes it.

The lord graciously accepts devotees’ service and reverence.  All worship should be followed by distribution of Prasāda  or food offered to God.

How do we worship Lord Narasimha?

Lord Narasimha can be worshipped in two ways.  The first is detailed below:
Along with firm faith, worship of Narasimha is associated with rigid criteria.
This is explained in detail below
1. ācharana ṣuddhi – Requires strict adherence to performance.
2. Cleanliness of ḍravya- physical things like utensils, lamps, ingredients.
3. Inner sanctity of five senses – body, intellect, mind, place, and act of worship
4. Chastity of Mind, speech and deeds unification, compassion, calmness of virtuous soul within. These are to prevent any glitches that might distract the mind while doing the worship.
5. Taking bath and starting with daily routine worship followed by pūja sankalpa-declaration to do worship, and completion without break with little or no food intake till then.
6. Bodily calmness in turn calms the mind. This helps to open up the channel that leads to internal visualization and realization of Narasimha.
These are things that keep body, mind and intellect in balance to further the pursuit of (worship til)attaining perfection.
7. Those who seek Salvation, do fasting till worship is over in the evening.Those who seek all types of desire fulfillment  do fasting till the next day morning worship and  follow with chanting of Narasimha mantra.
8. To do further,  people could do hōma – oblation and read “Nrsimhatāpini ” upaniśad.
9. An idol of Narasimha can be donated to someone who has great respect and potential to worship the idol.

The second means of worship is detailed for those who find it difficult to adhere to the above strict rules, can do the following steps

1. ḍhyāna or  meditation – along with imagining the worship of Narasimha with the above said flowers etc.
2. Acts of mind and soul offered to God is also oblation. This is equivalent to hōmam.
3.Various purifying actions performed during puja
a. snānha – ablution, pāna – intake of water and food offered to God
b. pādya – chant with clean and clear heart and intellect
c. arghya – water offered with respect from the river of faith
d. āchamana – water used for sipping same river
e. abhiśeka – for the lord
f.  Mind filled with the flow of thoughts of God from the river of faith,
ṣraddha – as the water for cleansing.
4. ātma – Offer sacred soul which is inside the body.
5. bow and perform salutation with state of equanimity
6. ṣaranāgati– self surrender to the Lord

With pure mind and internal contemplation there is no need for external rituals to be performed. Pāramārthika or worship of realizing supreme alone with internal purity surpasses all other forms of worship. That is, true worship with internal purity is more powerful than the external rituals.

As part of worship, singing, listening to discourse is recommended at the end of the worship.

What is the power of worshipping Lord Narasimha?

Lord Narasimha destroys sins, grants virtues, grants moral religious merits, grants objects of human pursuit – Puruśhartha. The lord grants ultimate peace, knowledge, and joy. He fulfills wishes for the seekers of the worldly desires.

Insight about this incarnation of ṣri mahāviśnu:
The brilliant form of Narasimha is described as comprising of three entities.  1. Brahma from feet to naval, 2. Vishnu–naval to neck  3. Rudra–neck unto head., From there onwards– it is  the supreme Godhead,  Parabrahma.
Narasimha is personification of truth–perceived and experienced by those who are in the state of union with divine, and that, which is beyond senses – Yoga Samādhi.

The brilliant form of Narasimha is also considered and viewed as an internal phenomenon.

” ōm namō bhagavatē narasimhāya namas tējas-tējasē āvir-āvirbhava vajra-nakha vajra-damśtra karmāsayān randhaya randhaya tamō grasa grasa ōm svaha; abhayam abhayam ātmani bhūyistha ōm ksraum ”
-Stanza from Srimad Bhāgavatam

Jaya kolhapura nilaye – ಜಯ ಕೊಲ್ಹಾಪುರ ನಿಲಯೇ Lyrics

Over the past few weeks, around 8-10 of my Satsangha friends have started to learn Devaranamas. Miss. Padma asked me to teach songs, and many others decided they also want to learn and we started this online sessions on Wednesday’s and from this week on Tuesday’s in the night. The first song I taught was the song from none other than our beloved Rayaru “Indu Enage Govinda”. Last week, Miss Sasipriya requested to learn Jaya kolhapura nilaye – ಜಯ  ಕೊಲ್ಹಾಪುರ  ನಿಲಯೇ . Since I had not learnt this song, my Sister Suma said she knew and volunteered to teach us all this amazing song written by none other than Shri VyasaRajaru.

We found several web sites with lyrics in English, but none in Kannada. The book I have had the lyrics in Kannada, so I was able to scan and post it here. The tune is same as Sri. Vidyabhushan has sung on Youtube, the link which is provided. I have here the lyrics in English and the scanned copy of lyrics in Kananda.
