Ekena Chakramaparena Karena Shamkha-
Manyena Sindhutanyaaamavalambya Tishhthan,
Vaame Karena Varadaabhayapadmachihnam,
Lakshmi Nrsimha Mama Dehi Karavalambam (Lakshmi Karavalamba Stotram,14)
Oh Great God Lakshmi Nrsimha,
Who holds Sudarshana, the holy wheel in one hand,
Who holds the conch in the other hand,
Who embraces the daughter of the ocean by one hand,
And the fourth hand signifies protection and boons, and so,
Please give me the protection of your hands.
