|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 8: Talks Between Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Rāmānanda Rāya|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 8.5
"śrī-nṛsiḿha, jaya nṛsiḿha, jaya jaya nṛsiḿha
prahlādeśa jaya padmā-mukha-padma-bhṛńga"
śrī-nṛsiḿha — Lord Nṛsiḿha with Lakṣmī; jaya nṛsiḿha — all glories to Lord Nṛsiḿha; jaya jaya — again and again glories; nṛsiḿha — to Nṛsiḿhadeva; prahlāda-īśa — to the Lord of Prahlāda Mahārāja; jaya — all glories; padmā — of the goddess of fortune; mukha-padma — of the lotuslike face; bhṛńga — the bee.
"'All glories to Nṛsiḿhadeva! All glories to Nṛsiḿhadeva, who is the Lord of Prahlāda Mahārāja and, like a honeybee, is always engaged in beholding the lotuslike face of the goddess of fortune.'
The goddess of fortune is always embraced by Lord Nṛsiḿhadeva. This is mentioned in the commentary on Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam written by the great commentator Śrīla Śrīdhara Svāmī. The following verse was composed by Śrīdhara Svāmī in his commentary on the Tenth Canto of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (10.87.1):
vāg-īśā yasya vadane lakṣmīr yasya ca vakṣasi
yasyāste hṛdaye samvit taḿ nṛsiḿham ahaḿ bhaje
"Lord Nṛsiḿhadeva is always assisted by Sarasvatī, the goddess of learning, and He is always embracing the goddess of fortune to His chest. The Lord is always complete in knowledge within Himself. Let us offer obeisances unto Nṛsiḿhadeva."
Similarly, in his commentary on the First Canto of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (1.1.1), Śrīdhara Svāmī describes Lord Nṛsiḿhadeva in this way:
śarad-indu-ruciḿ vande pārīndra-vadanaḿ harim
"Let me offer my obeisances unto Lord Nṛsiḿhadeva, who is always enlightening Prahlāda Mahārāja within his heart and who always kills the nescience that attacks the devotees. His mercy is distributed like moonshine, and His face is like that of a lion. Let me offer my obeisances unto Him again and again."
