"I bow down to Lord Narasimha who is ferocious and heroic like Lord Vishnu. He is burning from every side. He is terrific, auspicious and the death of death personified."
Narasimha Gayatri Mantra
Om Vajranakhaya Vidmahe
Tanno Narasimhah Pracodayat
Meaning: Om let us meditate the half-man and half-lion form of the Lord Narasimha. May this great God with his nails pierce our ignorance and with his fierce sharp tooth destroy the demon of darkness and illuminate our mind and understanding.
