Sri Nrsimha Runa Vimochan Stuti to Worship Ugra Narasimha

The powers of these slokas are profound and overwhelming and the regular recital of them would invariably relieve everyone of their sufferings and difficulties.

This is a prayer to Lord Narasimha to get rid of the debt of Karma that have to be eliminated without which salvation cannot be achieved.

Significance of Runa Vimochana Narasimha Stotram

 This is a powerful sloka that when recited regularly will relieve people of their debts and insolvency however severe and acute.

Recitation of Mantra generates sounds which is divine in character.
This sound is alive and you feel its strength in every part of you. A
spiritual aspirant cannot deny its psychological effect and spiritual
significance. It is in the intrinsic nature of sacred sound to bring
human being into contact with the divine. It enables man to feel the
spiritual presence and to find it in the cavity of his own heart. We
could pray anywhere. But if the prayer is done properly and with
utmost devotion, you get glimpse of the SUPREEM FORCE.

Sri nrusimham mahaveeram namami runa mukthaye.

The Runa Vimochana Stotram is contained in the Nrusimha Purana. Every
individual incurs three kinds of debt at birth. These
are Deva Runa (debt to the Devas), Rishi Runa (debt to Rishis) and
Pitru Runa (debt to ones ancestors).

The debt could be explained also as the debt of Karma, which we have
to get rid off to attain salvation.

These are repaid by offering aahuti in Yagas, performing Veda
Adhyayanam under great masters (sages), and performing Tarpana and
Shradda, respectively.

However, these debts are so great that they cannot be repaid in ones
lifetime. The Runa referred to in this Stotra is also the bondage
arising from ones Karma on account of Samsaric association. The Runa
Vimochana Stotram extols the munificent grace of Sri Bhagavan
Nrusimha, as a result of which an individual is absolved of these debts.

The first eight verses glorify various attributes of Sri Bhagavan
Nrusimha, each verse ending with the line " Sri Nrusimham Mahaveeram
Namaami Runa MuktayE " . Verse 9 contains the Phala Shruti for this
Stotram. The salutations Nrusimham and Mahaveeram have their origins
in the most sacred Nrusimhanushtup Mantram.

Deva karya sidhyartham, sabha sthambha samudbhavam,
Sri nrusimham mahaveeram namami runa mukthaye.

Granting boons to devotees takes on special significance in this
context. Sri Bhagwan incarnated as Narasimha from the pillar in
Hiranyakashyap's Sabha to rush to the succor of his Bhakta.

One verse extols the back-to-back forms of Sudarshana and Nrusimha. The
foremost characteristic of the Sudarshana Chakra is to destroy ones
sins and point a supplicant in the direction of the SUPREME.
Sudarshana is the fierce Jwala which forms the center of the Kala
Anala fire at the end of time).

Sri nrusimham mahaveeram namami runa mukthaye.

Oh supremely valorous Bhagavan Nrusimha, salutations to
you! Please absolve me of my debts.

From the highest step of the widely striding Hero, His multiple splendors!
Rig Veda I, 154
