नृसिंहचरितवर्णनं नाम दशमोऽध्यायः
Narsimha (incarnation of Vishnu) characteristics description Chapter 10
शिव उवाच |
Lord Shiva said (to the Devas)
स्वस्थानं गच्छत सुराः सर्वे ब्रह्मादयोऽभयाः |
शमयिष्यामि यद्दुःखं सर्वथा हि व्रतं मम || 39 ||
गतो मच्छरणं यस्तु तस्य दुःखं क्षयं गतम् |
मत्प्रियः शरणापन्नः प्राणेभ्योऽपि न संशयः || 40 ||
Go to your own place without fear, Brahma and all Devas. Whatever unhappiness (you have, Lord Vishnu as Narsimha incarnation is still burning with anger even after killing Hiranyakashipu), I will extinguish in all ways. This is my vow.
Once someone comes to me for refuge, his unhappiness/sorrow disappears. One who takes refuge (in me is) my favourite, no doubt, more (dear to me) than even (my) life.
