Srimad Bhagavatham 5:18:8 & 9
ओं नमो भगवते नरसिंहाय नमस् तेजस्-तेजसे आविर्-आविर्भव वज्र-नख वज्र-दंष्ट्र कर्माशयान् रन्धय रन्धय तमो ग्रस ग्रस ओं स्वाहा अभयम् अभ अभयम् अभयम् आत्मनि भूयिष्ठा ओं क्ष्रौम्
स्वस्त्य् अस्तु विश्वस्य खलः प्रसीदतां ध्यायन्तु भूतानि शिवं मिथो धिया
मनश् च भद्रं भजताद् अधोक्षजे आवेश्यतां नो मतिर् अप्य् अहैतुकी
I offer my respectful obeisances unto Lord Narasimahaya, the source of all power. Hail to the light of lights. Fully reveal yourself, O my Lord who possesses nails and teeth just like thunderbolts, burn down, burn down our latent desires. Swallow up, swallow up all darkness (in the form of ignorance in our hearts) We offer our worship oh Lord ! please appear in our hearts so that by Your mercy we may become fearless in the struggle for existence in this material world.
May all be well throughout the universe, and may the wicked become gentle. May all living beings contemplate good to one another with their intellect and may their mind resort only to that which is good by Chanting the Divine names; and may our thought as well as the thought of others be fixed on You with out any motive (whatsoever)
Sri Ammãlu Ammãl song on our Kalyana Srinivasa Perumal, Madhurapuri
'nã kku kã la murtiyu neene' - 'Oh! Lord! One who is four 'kã la' Murti! At dawn ('udaya kã la') You are verily Sriman Narayana! From 10 to 12 noon You are Rama.
Sri Ramachandra Prabho! Why? When the Sun is so hot You stand as Rama in order to turn the Sun as cool as the Moon! So, You stand as Rama between 10 a.m. to 12 noon!
At dusk ('pradosha kã la') You stand as Lakshmi Narasimha, Oh! Lord!
At night ('sayana kã la') You stand as 'Dorai' (Lord) Venunã tha!
Gopinã tha! Gopijã ra! Gopi ka vallabha! Wearing such Names, You wander about at nights! You are verily the four 'kã la' murti.
