SRI LAKSHMI NARASIMHA SWAMY BHUJANGAM
Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Bhujangam was written by Sri Adi Shankara in order to reduce the anger of Lord Narasimha, and to pacify him through his wonderful Stotra. By reciting this stotra, clashes in the households would be controlled, and great peace would prevail in the family. Anger is our bad activity, and sometimes people would destroy others also out of the outcome of the anger.
Lord Narasimha after killing Hiranyakasipu was unable to control his anger, and in order to pacify him, the great child devotee Prahalada had recited wonderful stotras and pacified the Lord. Similar to that one, Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Bhujangam is composed by Sri Adishankara in order to make the Narasimha deities found in the Narasimha temples to become soft and gentle.
We should keep reciting this wonderful stotra of Lord Narasimha as a daily practice in order to remove the miseries and sorrows in our lives.
The contents present in the popular Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Bhujangam are as follows:-
