Sri Narsimh Aarti


namas te narasimhaya
prahladahlada-dayine ||
hiranyakasipor vakshah
sila-tanka-nakhalayev ||1||

I offer my obeisances to Lord Narasimha who gives joy to Prahlada Maharaja and whose nails are like chisels on the stonelike chest of the demon Hiranyakasipu.

ito nrisimhah parato nrisimho
yato yato yami tato nrisimhah ||
bahir nrisimho hridaye nrisimho
nrisimham adim saranam prapadye ||2||

Lord Nrisimha is here and also there. Wherever I go Lord Nrisimha is there. He is in the heart and is outside as well. I surrender to Lord Nrisimha, the origin of all things and the supreme refuge.

ceto-darpana-marjanam bhava-maha-davagni-nirvapanam
sreyah-kairava-candrika-vitaranam vidya-vadhu-jivanam
anandambudhi-vardhanam prati-padam purnamritasvadanam
sarvatma-snapanam param vijayate sri-krishna-sankirtanam

Glory to the sri-krishna-sankirtana, which cleanses the heart of all the dust accumulated for years and
extinguishes the fire of conditional life, of repeated birth and death. This sankirtana movement is the
prime benediction for humanity at large because it spreads the rays of the benediction moon. It is the life of
all transcendental knowledge. It increases the ocean of transcendental bliss, and it enables us to fully taste
the nectar for which we are always anxious.

(2)
namnam akari bahudha nija-sarva-saktis
tatrarpita niyamitah smarane na kalah
etadrisi tava kripa bhagavan mamapi
durdaivam idrisam ihajani nanuragah

O my Lord, Your holy name alone can render all benediction to living beings, and thus You have hundreds
and millions of names, like Krishna and Govinda. In these transcendental names You have invested all
Your transcendental energies. There are not even hard and fast rules for chanting these names. O my Lord, out
of kindness You enable us to easily approach You by Your holy names, but I am so unfortunate that I have
no attraction for them.

(3)
trinad api sunicena
taror api sahishnuna
amanina manadena
kirtaniyah sada harih

One should chant the holy name of the Lord in a humble state of mind, thinking oneself lower than the straw
in the street; one should be more tolerant than a tree, devoid of all sense of false prestige, and should be ready
to offer all respect to others. In such a state of mind one can chant the holy name of the Lord constantly.

(4)
na dhanam na janam na sundarim
kavitam va jagad-isa kamaye
mama janmani janmanisvare
bhavatad bhaktir ahaituki tvayi

O almighty Lord, I have no desire to accumulate wealth, nor do I desire beautiful women, nor do I want
any number of followers. I only want Your causeless devotional service, birth after birth.

(5)
ayi nanda-tanuja kinkaram
patitam mam vishame bhavambudhau
kripaya tava pada-pankajasthita-
dhuli-sadrisam vicintaya

O son of Maharaja Nanda [Krishna], I am Your eternal servitor, yet somehow or other I have fallen into the ocean
of birth and death. Please pick me up from this ocean of death and place me as one of the atoms at Your lotus feet.

(6)
nayanam galad-asru-dharaya
vadanam gadgada-ruddhaya gira
pulakair nicitam vapuh kada
tava-nama-grahane bhavishyati

O my Lord, when will my eyes be decorated with tears of love flowing constantly when I chant Your holy
name? When will my voice choke up, and when will the hairs of my body stand on end at the recitation of
Your name?

(7)
yugayitam nimeshena
cakshusha pravrishayitam
sunyayitam jagat sarvam
govinda-virahena me

O Govinda! Feeling Your separation, I am considering a moment to be like twelve years or more. Tears are
flowing from my eyes like torrents of rain, and I am feeling all vacant in the world in Your absence.

(8)
aslishya va pada-ratam pinashtu mam
adarsanan marma-hatam-hatam karotu va
yatha tatha va vidadhatu lampato
mat-prana-nathas tu sa eva naparah

I know no one but Krishna as my Lord, and He shall remain so even if He handles me roughly by His embrace
or makes me brokenhearted by not being present before me. He is completely free to do anything and
everything, for He is always my worshipful Lord, unconditionally.

Dus Naam Apradh


Book Name: Padma Purana (Section: Brahma Khanda 25.15–18)

1) To blaspheme the devotees who have dedicated their lives for propagating the holy name of the Lord.

2) To consider the names of demigods like Lord Shiva or Lord Brahma to be equal to or independent of the name of the Lord Vishnu.

3) To disobey the orders of the spiritual master.

4) To blaspheme the vedic scriptures or scriptures in pursuance to the vedic version.

5) To consider the glories of chanting Hare Krishna to be an imagination.

6) To give some interpretations to the holy name of the Lord.

7) To commit sinful activities on the strength of the holy name.

8) To consider the chanting of Hare Krishna as one of the auspicious ritualistic activities which are offered in the Vedas as frutive activities (Karma kanda).

9) To instruct a faithless person about the glories of the holy name

10) To not have complete faith in the chanting of the holy name and to maintain material attachments, even after understanding so many instructions on this matter. It is also an offense to be inattentive while chanting.
Every devotee who claims to be Vaishnava must guard against these offenses in order to quickly achieve the desired success KRISHNA PREMA!!!

Let us offer our humble obeisances to all the Vaishnava devotees of the Lord, who are just like desire tress, who can fulfill all desires and are full of compassion for the fallen conditioned souls.
