Sri Lakshmi Nrusimha KarAvalambha StOtram

Dear devotees and friends: Re: Sri Lakshmi Nrusimha KarAvalambha StOtram.

Recently I was fortunate enough to come across a nice translation of the verses of Sri Lakshmi Nrusimha KarAvalambham into Tamil. They were being kindly forwarded to me by Sri Jagdishan, one of my close friends and former colleague during my college days in Loyola College in Chennai. Through his help, I was able to correspond with the author of these translations, Smt. Nirmala Subramanian.  She has been kind enough to provide a  thoughtful and nice easy flowing translation of these beautiful verses in Tamil and has allowed us to share the same through this web site. I wish to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to her for providing the same and sharing the same with all of us through this web site.

This is the Tamil month of Adi. Last week we celebrated ThiruvAdi Pooram, the Thirunakshatram of Sri Andal. It is therefore befitting to upload the meaning of Sri Lakshmi Nrusimha KarAvalambha StOtram in conjunction with this auspicious occasion.

The following two links refer to two documents. One of them contains a few selected verses of Azhwars on  Sri Lakshmi Nrusimha. The second link provides the translation into Tamil of the meaning of the verses of Sri Lakshmi Nrusimha KarAvalambham.

Although this site will have Azhwars’ Pasurams, I would like to provide links to three stotras that I had recorded previously. They were originally presented to Perumal in our temple in Toronto.  We still sing Sri Ranganathashtakam of Sri Adhi Sankara and recite the Sudarshanashtakam of Swami Desikan routinely on Saturdays after Thirumanjanam of Perumal after reciting the Sahasranamams and Sri Lakshmi Ashtotram. The other Stotram is Sri Lakshmi Nrsimha Karavalambha Stotram of Sri Adhi Sankara.  May the Lord Sri Lakshmi Nrsimha’s grace be with us always.
