Half-Animal Body for killing a pashu...

Brilliant explanation of why Bhagavan Shree NaraSimha is Half-a-Lion-and-Half-a-Man from "Shree LakshmiNaraSimha-Panchasat". 


"Shree LakshmiNaraSimha-Panchasat", Verse 10:

प्रह्लादे नरतां निरीक्ष्य नरतां तत्याज्ञ नैव स्वयं 
तत्ताते मृगतामुदीक्ष्य मृगतां अङ्गीचकारानाने । 
रुपव्याकरणं समस्तजगतां यत्कृत्यमाहुर्बुधाः 
तद्रूपं न तृगस्य नौव मनुजस्येत्यद्भुतं दृश्यते । । 

prahlAde naratAM nirIkShya naratAM tatyAj~na naiva svayaM 
tattAte mRRigatAmudIkShya mRRigatAM a~NgIchakArAnAne | 
rupavyAkaraNaM samastajagatAM yatkRRityamAhurbudhAH 
tadrUpaM na tRRigasya nauva manujasyetyadbhutaM dRRishyate | |

Explanation: "It is indeed a matter of wonder that the Lord’s sacred body as Narasimhan does not relate to that of either an animal or a human entirely. We witness this mystery. 

The knowledgeable ones say that it is His deliberate act to differentiate between all the objects of His creation and determine which is which and how to relate to them. 

PrahlAdan had human qualities (naratAm). Therefore, the Lord did not abandon the attributes of the human being and assumed a human form below his neck (prahlAde naratAm nirIkshya naratAm svayam tatyAja naiva). 

PrahlAda’s father exhibited the qualities of an animal (mrgatAm). Hence, the Lord took on a fierce animal face to relate to HiraNyan and to frighten him out of his wits and destroy him (tat tAte mrgatAm udIkshya mrgatAm Anane angIcakAra)".

Destructive Music of Shree Krishna...

The following Verses of "Shreemad-Bhagavatam" illustrate how Shree Krishna uses even His Conchshell as a Weapon. For fans of idm, industrial and just destruction. 


शङ्ख-नादेन यन्त्राणि हृदयानि मनस्विनाम्
प्राकारं गदया गुर्व्या निर्बिभेद गदाधरः

"Shreemad Bhagavatam", 10.59.5: "With the sound of His Conchshell Bhagavan Shree Gadadhara (Shree Krishna) then shattered the magic seals of the fortress, along with the hearts of its brave defenders, and with His heavy Club He demolished the surrounding earthen ramparts"

Tika by OM VishnuPad Vishwanatha Chakravarti Thakur ("Shree Sarartha-Darshini"): "With the Sound of His Conchshell Krishna pierced the mystic armour (yantrani) protecting the hearts of warriors".

पाञ्चजन्य-ध्वनिं श्रुत्वा युगान्तशनि-भीषणम्
मुरः शयान उत्तस्थौ दैत्यः पञ्च-शिरा जलात्

pA~nchajanya-dhvaniM shrutvA yugAntashani-bhIShaNam
muraH shayAna uttasthau daityaH pa~ncha-shirA jalAt

"Shreemad Bhagavatam", 10.59.6: "The five-headed demon Mura, who slept at the bottom of the city's moat, awoke and rose up out of the water when he heard the vibration of Lord Krishna's Pancajanya conchshell, a sound as terrifying as the thunder at the end of the cosmic age".

Tika by OM VishnuPad Vishwanatha Chakravarti Thakur ("Shree Sarartha-Darshini"): "The word "ashani" (thunderbolt) compares the sound of Krishna's Conchshell, which woke up the sleeping demon Mura, with the fearful sound of the thunderbolts at the time of universal devastation. 

The word "ashani" was also used earlier to describe how the wrestlers at Kamsa's arena saw Krishna as a terrifying thunderbolt: mallana ashanir (10.43.17)".

No fear and Shree LakshmiNaraSimha...

If you study "Shree Brahma-Purana", you will be very happy to know, that "Shree NaraSimha-Mahatmya" is a part of "Shree Brahma-Purana". 
I will cite some brilliant Verses from "Shree NaraSimha-Mahatmya" in my blog, just laconic posts in 3-6 Verses.  


भक्त्या दृष्ट्वा तु तं देवं प्रणम्य नरकेसरीम् /
मुच्यते पातकैर् मर्त्यः समस्तैर् नात्र संशयः 

"Shree Brahma-Purana", 55.5: "By devoutly visiting Bhagavan Shree NaraSimha and by bowing to Lord Shree NaraSimha one is liberated from all the sins. There is no doubt in this". 

नरसिंहस्य ये भक्ता भवन्ति भुवि मानवाः /
न तेषां दुष्कृतं किंचित् फलं स्याद् यद् यद् ईप्सितम् 

"Shree Brahma-Purana", 55.6: "Those men on the earth who are the bhaktas of Bhagavan Shree NaraSimha, incur no sin at all. The will have all their wishes and dreams fulfilled" 

तस्मात् सर्वप्रयत्नेन नरसिंहं समाश्रयेत् /
धर्मार्थकाममोक्षाणां फलं यस्मात् प्रयच्छति 

"Shree Brahma-Purana", 55.7: "Hence, by all means one should resort to Bhagavan Shree NaraSimha, since Lord Shree NaraSimha grants kama, artha, dharma and Moksha".

Vaishnava-Mantra of the week...

ॐ ब्रह्मरुद्रादि उपास्यत्ववचो निर्वाहकारकाय नमः
OM brahmarudrAdi upAsyatvavacho nirvAhakArakAya namaH

This is Mantra NO. 848 of "Shree Vedanta-Desika-SahasraNam". 

Tika from SADAGOPAN's edition: "Salutations to Swamy Desikan, who reminded us that Rudhra bhakthan cannot gain Moksham directly unlike VishNu bhakthan 

PramANam: Brahmaa and Rudhran bless their BhakthAs with Jn~Anam conducive to Moksham and therefore become the kaaraNams for Moksham.

The phalan of worshipping Sooryan in seven JanmAs make one a Rudhra Bhakthan; continuation of worship of Rudhran in seven JanmAs will make one a VishNu Bhakthan, who becomes eligible for moksham directly. 

Thus Rudhra Bhakthi is the reason for becoming a VishNu Bhakthan"
