Canto 7: The Science of GodChapter 8: Lord Nṛsiḿhadeva Slays the King of the Demons

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 7.8.51

śrī-cāraṇā ūcuḥ

hare tavāńghri-pańkajaḿ

bhavāpavargam āśritāḥ

yad eṣa sādhu-hṛc-chayas

tvayāsuraḥ samāpitaḥ


śrī-cāraṇāḥ ūcuḥ — the inhabitants of the Cāraṇa planet said; hareO Lord; tava — Your; ańghri-pańkajam — lotus feet; bhava-apavargam — the only shelter for becoming free from the contamination of material existence; āśritāḥ — sheltered at; yat — because; eṣaḥ — this; sādhu-hṛt-śayaḥ — stake in the hearts of all honest persons; tvayā — by Your Lordship; asuraḥ — the demon (Hiraṇyakaśipu); samāpitaḥ — finished.


The inhabitants of the Cāraṇa planet said: O Lord, because You have destroyed the demon Hiraṇyakaśipu, who was always a stake in the hearts of all honest men, we are now relieved, and we eternally take shelter of Your lotus feet, which award the conditioned soul liberation from materialistic contamination.


The Supreme Personality of Godhead in His transcendental form of Narahari, Nṛsiḿhadeva, is always ready to kill the demons, who always create disturbances in the minds of honest devotees. To spread the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement, devotees have to face many dangers and impediments all over the world, but a faithful servant who preaches with great devotion to the Lord must know that Lord Nṛsiḿhadeva is always his protector.
