Finding 1Prahlada undaunted at his blazing wrath,
Manifested in burning eyes and scorching forehead
That keeps in dread the most dreadful of the dreadfuls
Besides turning the dynamic into static and vice versa,
2Narasimba, the fourth incarnation of Lord 3Maha Vishnu,
Emerged fast to slay that ruthless demon 4Hiranyakasipu
And to prove that His omnipresence is ever ready
To save 5saranagatha and punish the 6duragatha
And justify His sublime attribure-7Bhakta Paradheena
Entreated him in a tone soft, and look benign thus
Amn't I horrible with my man-lion hideous shape
Unseen by any, or unknown to any
Assumed I this awfully terrifying strange visage
To strike death
to the power intoxicated 8Loka kantakas
Remorseless 9Kamaandhas and soulless
How then could you Keep that matchless mental poise
keep divine serenity over flowing throughout?
Where from that peerless
How could you display such unique fearlessness?
my son, speak the reason and please me ?
