phalam me rakshatu dhvanim

nrisimho me drishau paatu

kavachasyasya mantrasya
mantra-siddhih-prajayate

anena mantra-rajena
kritva bhasmabhir mantranam


27. This Kavacha-mantra is the king of all mantras. One attains by it what would be attained by anointing oneself with ashes and chanting all other mantras.

tilakam vinyased yas tu
tasya graha-bhayam haret

tri-varam japamanas tu
dattam varyabhimantrya cha


28. Having marked ones body with tilaka, taking achamana with water, and reciting this mantra three times, one will find that the fear of all inauspicious planets is removed.

prasayed yo naro mantram
nrisimha-dhyanam acharet

tasya rogah pranashyanti
ye cha syuh kukshi-sambhavaha


29. That person who recites this mantra, meditating upon Lord Narasimhadeva, has all of his diseases vanquished, including those of the abdomen.

garjantam garjayantam nija-bhuja-patalam sphotayantam hatantam
rupyantam tapayantam divi bhuvi ditiyam kshepayantam kshipantam

krandantam roshayantam dishi dishi satantam samharantam bharantam
vikshantam purnayantam kara-nikara-shatair divya-simham namami


30. Lord Narasimha roars loudly and causes others to roar. With His multitudes of arms He tears the demons asunder and kills them in this way. He is always seeking out and tormenting the demonic descendants of Diti, both on this earth planet and in the higher planets, and He throws them down and scatters them. He cries with great anger as He destroys the demons in all directions, yet with His unlimited hands He sustains, protects, and nourishes the cosmic manifestation. I offer my respectful obeisances to the Lord, who has assumed the form of a transcendental lion.

iti shri brahmanda-purane prahladoktam
shri nrisimha-kavacham sampurnam


Thus ends the Narasimha-kavacha as it is described by Prahlada Maharaja in the Brahmanda Purana.
