How to do this Vratham?
In Kaliyug to receive the grace of the Lord Narasimha, this Vratha is the easiest means. As soon as one performs this vratham any kind of difficulties will vanish. This vratha that was told by Lord Narasimha himself is very easy to perform. Anyone can perform this vratham anywhere. When one does not have mental peace, have financial / health problems or any other kind of issues all their difficulties can be overcome by performing this vratham. Also if one is performing any auspicious ceremonies (Housewarming, marriages, starting education etc) one can do this vratham. Immediate positive results can be seen if the vratham is performed to improve one’s job or business prospects.

Lord Narsimha Swamy and Lakshmi Devi

This vratham can be done at any time. If it is performed in months of Magha, Vaishaka, Sravana, Karthika, Margasira months or on Dasami, Ekadasi, Pournami or during the days of stars Poorva palguni, Swathi or Shravana, the results are more evident. One can do this vratham either in the morning or evening. This vratham has 5 stories. The vratham can be done in one’s own home, rented house, temple or holy place or on the banks of a river.

If a person performs this vratham with devotion and dedication, the Lord himself will come in some form or other to partake the Prasadam.

The other important thing that the Lord himself said is that if one cannot perform the vratham so elaborately due to financial or any other constraints, then they can perform it alone in their house. As far as possible invite friends and relatives while performing the vratham. The place where the vratham would be performed should be first cleaned. Then arrange a mandap and keep the photo of Lakshmi Narsimha Swamy along with a Kalasam (Small tumbler of water with a coconut on top.).

Pray to the Lord Vinayaka made of turmeric powder that the vratham should be completed successfully. Then pray to the Navagrahas (nine planets) and Ashtha dikpalakas (8 gods governing the directions) in your mind. All the five stories have to read to complete the vratham. Sitting in front of the photo of the Lord first pray to Lord Vigneshwara. Then pray to the
Navagrahas and Ashtha dikpalakas. In a tray keep some tulsi leaves, coconut and some fruits and flowers. Do Namaskaram to the Lord and read the stories in the mind. Once the stories are read then offer the coconut, fruits and flowers to the Lord. Partaking the offering will help overcome the difficulties faced by the devotee.

Those who can afford, can break a coconut after every story. Dahlia or Semolina mixed with sugar can be offered as naivedyam. Pulihora is another naivedyam that is dear to Lord Narasimha.

The Lord loves tulsi leaves a lot. To maximise the benefits of the vratham, offer tulsi leaves during the prayer. On completeion of the vratham these tulsi leaves can be distributed as prasadam. Devotees will be blessed with good health, wealth and prosperity. Once the vratham is completed break the coconut and distribute it along with the prasadam.

When possible perform this vratham in an elaborate way by establishing the Kalasam. If it is not possible then it can be performed in a simple manner.

One thing everyone must remember. No one knows all our difficulties except for our Lord.
Hence pray to the merciful Lord to remove all the difficulties. He will definitely bless his devotees
with prosperity.

Sri Narasimha Swamy Vratham Kalpam

First Chapter:
There used to be a place called Krishna patnam in Avanthi Nagar. A priest named Ananthacharya lived there. He used to spend all his time in praying in the temple of Yoga Narasimha Swamy. His wife Sumathi was also holding a lot of devotion towards the Lord. Although the couple was happy in all ways they were dissatisfied and unhappy as they did not have any offspring even after 12 years of their marriage. Daily they used to pray to the Lord requesting for children.

After a few years, Bhagawan who loves his devotees a lot, appeared in Anantacharya’s dream and said “Oh Acharya Purusha! You and your wife pray to me everyday with lot of devotion. This makes me very happy. I will tell you a way to beget a son soon. Oh Devotee! The month of Shravan has begun yesterday. On the day of Swati nakshatra perform the Narasimha Swamy vratham. You will soon blessed with a son. This vratham is very easy to perform. Tomorrow morning a devotee from a far away place will come to the temple. His name would be Vishwanadha. He is my beloved devotee. Vishwanadha will explain to you in detail about this vratham. If you perform the vratham as specified by him, you will surely get a child”. Saying so He disappeared.

As soon as Ananthacharya woke up, he told his wife Sumathi about the dream. She was very happy. They both got up earlier than everyday had a bath, completed their rituals and reached the temple. By the time the Suprabatham and Archana were completed, an old Brahmin came and stood with other devotees. After the naivedyam, Anantacharya started distributing prasadam to all devotees. He then came to the old Brahmin. The Brahmin appeared very happy and smiled after taking the prasadam. Anantacharya guessed that he must be Vishwanadha about whom Bhagawan specified in his dream.

Then the old Brahmin introduced himself as Vishwanadha and called Anantacharya and Sumathi aside and blessed them saying “Oh dear Devotees! You are very dear to Lord Narasimha Swamy. You will soon be blessed by Him”. Antacharya and Sumathi bowed to Vishwanadha and said “We realised you are the devotee that the Lord told us about in the yesterday’s dream. Please have mercy on us and tell us how to perform the Sri Narasimha Vratham”.

Vishwanadha replied “Children! I will surely explain the process to you. All this is Bhagawan’s grace. I am able to explain the procedure only with His blessings. Listen carefully”. “Oh devotees! Sri Narasimha vratham is very powerful. Those who perform this vratham with all devotion and with proper rituals will be blessed with all kinds of prosperity. All kinds of disease will surely vanish. As soon as one performs this vratham, they will get rid of fear of enemies, mental problems, physical problems and difficulties due to the positions of the planets. All kinds of auspicious things will happen and you will be blessed with wealth. You can perform this vratham on any day without seeing the day of week, nakshatra and tidhi. You need to keep the photo of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy. First perform Vigneswhara puja followed by Kalasa
puja and then the puja to the Lord. Then you should read the 5 stories. Naivedhyam can be made with either Dahlia or Sooji along with sugar. Offering Pulihora is auspicious. This vratham if performed in the months of Magha, Vaishaka, Sravana, Kartika and Margasira or on the
Dasami, Ekadasi or Pournami days or on the days with the stars Purva Palguni, Swati or Shravana will yield better results. In which ever house this vratham is performed, all the members of the house, those who listen to the stories and those who partake the prasadam will be blessed with prosperity. If this vratham is conducted in the temple, not only that village but also all the villages surrounding it will prosper with abundant rains and good crops. All business will flourish with lots of profits. Those who are studying will get good jobs, unmarried girls will get good husbands and all the married woman will be sumangalis, their husbands will have a long life. All the people in the village will be blessed with prosperity. Both of you perform this vratham, on the coming Swati Nakshatram day to receive the Lord’s blessings for begetting a son”.

Anantacharya couple prayed to Vishwanadha “Swamy! We do not know where you came from. You are almost of my father’s age. Please stay in our house till the day we perform the vratham on swati nakshatram. Please help us perform the vratham in a systematic way”. The old Brahmin agreed to their request and stayed with them. Anantacharya and Sumathi performed Sri Narasimha vratham with complete devotion under the guidance of Viswanadha. They were soon blessed with a son. They dedicated their lives to the service of the Lord, lived very happily and ultimately attained Moksha.

Second Chapter
In olden days King Vikramasimha ruled Kalinga kingdom. Vikramasimha was an able ruler and ruled the kingdom very well with the help of his intelligent ministers. All the neighboring kings were jealous of Vikramasimha. When ever possible they would try to conquer his kingdom.
They would loose the battle at the hands of the brave Vikramasimha as he was very good at protecting his kingdom. Among these neighboring kings, the king of Kosala kept waging war against Kalinga in spite of loosing at the hands of Vikramasimha several times. Vikramasimha
was fed up of these constant wars. He decided he has to conquer the King of Kosala. He prepared his army and started to Kosala to wage a war on an auspicious day that the ministers had decided.

It would take around one week to reach kingdom Kosala. Vikramasimha would undertake the journey in the day time and would take rest along with his entire army in the night. On the third night, King Vikramasimha was resting along with his army near a small village. When the King
was discussing the war matters with his ministers a soldier requested for audience. He said “Maharaja! I have a small request. Close to this place there is a village called Singama Palle where there is a very ancient temple of Lord Narasimha. In that temple the Lord is in five forms
Yoga, Abhaya, Jwala, Dhyana and Lakshmi Narasimha. From generations He is being worshipped by devotees. I request that you should take darshan of that Lord”.

The king agreed and went to the temple along with his ministers. During his visit to the temple the King prayed saying “Oh Swami! Narasimha! After I win this war while going back to my country, I will again come for your darshan. I will also perform your vratham after reaching my
country. Please bless me with victory in this battle. He informed the same to his Prime Minister Dharma Buddhi.

In the morning Vikramasimha started with the army and reached Kosala by the end of the week. With the Bhagawan’s grace he won the fierce battle over the King of Kosala. As King of Kosala prayed to King Vikramasimha that he will never again wage a war with Kalinga, king
Vikramasimha pardoned him. The entire army was happy over the victory and turned back towards their kingdom. In this happiness Vikramasimha forgot about the promise to Lord Narasimha. He reached Kalinga and was happily spending time with his queen.

Months were passing by, but King Vikramasimha completely forgot about Narasimha swami. The Lord was very angry. That night Vikramasimha was afflicted with a mysterious disease, his legs and hands got paralyzed and he could not even talk. The royal doctors tried their best with
all kinds of medicines but nothing seemed to work. Everyday night he would shout in fear. His ministers could not understand why this was happening. One night the Prime Minister Dharma Buddhi, in his dream, saw five lions roaring very ferociously.

The Prime Minister thought deeply about the meaning of his dream. He suddenly remembered that the king had darshan of Lord Narasimha while going to Kosala and he had vowed to do the vratham if he won the war. He realized that was the reason for the king’s disease. The Prime Minister immediately went to the queen and told her about the Kings vow. Since that day was Swathi nakshatram the queen decided to perform the vratham on the same day. She observed fast the whole day and performed the vratham in the evening with a lot of devotion. With the blessings of Narasimha Swamy, Vikramasimha got rid of his disease and became healthy once again. On an auspicious day, the king along with his queen and subjects visited Singama Pale. There, they worshipped Lord Narasimha swami in five forms and begged for His pardon. That night he stayed in the temple. Next day he performed the Lord’s Vratham, took prasadam and went back to his kingdom. He ruled Kalinga kindom for a long time and lived happily ever after.

Third Chapter
In olden days, on the banks of river Godavari, there was a village called Krishnagiri. On one side of the village there was a dense forest. There were around five to six hundered people living in Krishnagiri. There were big black hills around the village and hence it got the name
Krishnagiri. On one of the hills of Krishnagiri, there was a temple of Sri Narasimha Swamy. The temple was very ancient and well-known. It was believed that Lord Shiva himself had come and prayed to Narasimha Swamy here. Everybody believed that those who had faith in the Lord would not face any kind of problems and that He would protect His devotees from all diseases and bless them with a very prosperous life.

In Bhagawan’s temple there was a priest called Srinivasa Acharya. As his forefathers had migrated to this village and worshipped Narasimha Swamy, Srinivasa Acharya also settled and devoted his life to the service of the Lord. He would perform all the pujas for the devotees who came to the temple. Everyday he would offer dhoopam, deepam and naivedyam to the Lord with utmost devotion. Srinivasa Acharya’s wife Sugunavati would participate in the Lords service by getting up early and picking flowers.

Srinivasa Acharya had two daughters, Sri Lakshmi and Jai Lakshmi. Both were well behaved girls. When Sri Lakshmi reached her youth, her father started looking for good groom. He informed all his acquaintances that his daughter was of marriageable age and that if any suitable boy was available, then they should inform him. Every day early morning during Suprabatha seva of Lord Sri Lakshmi Narasimha, he used to pray to the Lord to get his daughters married to good boys. The Lord who gives all prosperity to his devotees wanted to shower his blessings on Srinivasa Acharya.

In the mean while Srinivasa Acharya received an invitation from a Rama Temple in Ramagiri where Sri Rama Kalyanam was being conduted. Ramagiri was 15 miles away from Krishnagiri. Srinivasa Acharya went there along with his wife and daughters. They all stayed there for four days and participated in the Sri Rama Kalyanotsavam. Among the Brahmins who came for the Kalyanotsavam, one of them had a son of marriageable age. The groom’s name was Venkatanadha. The horoscopes of Sri Lakshmi’s and Venkatanadha’s matched very well. Both families agreed to the marriage and decided to fix an appropriate day for the engagement. Then Srinivasa Acharya’s family happily returned to Krishnagiri.

Two months later, on one auspicious day Srinivasa Acharya along with his family, relatives and friends started to Ramagiri on bullock carts to perform Sri Lakshmi’s engagement ceremony. To reach Ramagiri they had to cross the jungle. All of them were talking merrily to pass
time. When they reached the middle of the jungle a group of thieves attacked them. Srinivasa Acharya begged the thieves to spare them since they were going for their daughter’s engagement, but that was no use. The thieves were cruel and robbed them of all their possessions (belongings).

Except for praying to Lord Narasimha Swamy, Srinivasa Acharya could not do anything else. “Hey Swamy! Savior of those in difficulties! We have no other savior other than you. Please save us”.

Then suddenly, what a wonder! A lion with lighting speed came from the bushes and attacked the thieves. Srinivasa Acharya’s family was also scared on seeing the lion. Surprisinlgy, it did not harm anyone from Srinivasa Acharya’s family or friends. Even the bullocks which usually get frightened on seeing a lion, did not move at all. Although the lion was roaring there was no fear in the bullocks. The thieves ran away leaving all the possessions and immediately the lion ran back to the bushes and disappeared.

Srinivasa Acharya and his family realised that Lord Narasimha Himself came in the form of the lion to save them. All of them sang praises of the Lord for saving them. They reached Ramagiri safely and performed the engagement ceremony as decided. After some days, on an auspicious day Sri Lakshmi’s marriage with Venkatanadha was performed. Srinivasa Acharya couple lived happily serving Sri Laxmi Narasimha all their life.

Fourth Chapter
Once upon a time, in Kalinga Desa there was a city called Narsingapuram. Although it was a city it looked like a very spacious village. The people of the city were very happy. In that city there was a very ancient temple of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha. There was a specialty to the idols of the Lord and Goddess Lakshmi over here. In which ever direction the devotee stood and looked, it would appear that the Lord was looking that side only. If one was looking from right side then it would appear Bhagawan was looking to the right side. Also Narasimha Swamy here was very famous for granting all the wishes of his devotees. It was believed that Lord Shiva himself had done pratishta of the idols in this temple and that all the celestial beings would come every night to worship the Lord.

Every day many devotees from far and near would visit the temple to have darshan of the Lord. With all the donation that the devotees gave the temple prospered well. The temple had about fifty acres of land donated by devotees. There was a lot of jewelery that devotees had been
offering from generations. They would decorate the Lord with these jewels during special festivals. The trustee of the temple, Ramayya devoted his life to the Lord. He would spend his own money for countless services for the Lord. In that city, Chalamayya was one well known devotee. Chalamayya was very rich but very miserly. He would cheat people in business and make money through deceitful ways. Seeing the wealth of the temple he got greedy. He thought he should take over the temple authority so that he could get his hands on its wealth.

Using his connections, Chalamayya made Ramayya resign from the position of Trustee and took over the trustee position of the temple. Each week he would come to the temple and enquire from the priests how much money was donated by devotees that week. Every month he would open the hundi and get all the offerings counted by his own henchmen. If there were any valuables he would silently take them home. He became so miserly that he used to take the coconuts offered by devotees and sell them to different buyers and take that money home. The priests in the temple were very unhappy seeing Chalamayya’s behavior. They would pray to the Lord saying “Swamy! Please save yourself from Chalamayya”. They were waiting to see when the Lord would punish Chalamayya.

That day came very soon. One night Chalamayya got a dream in which he saw a lion roaring and going round his bed several times. It also jumped from one side of the bed to another.Chalamayya got very scared. He saw that the lion also was scattering all the things in the house. It was very scary for Chalamayya. In the morning Chalamayya woke up and thought that it was only a dream. Just then his wife came running and said everything in the house was scattered as if someone purposefully did it. Chalamayya jumped from the bed and saw that everything in the house was strewn. He also very clearly saw paw prints of a lion on the wall. He realized what he saw was not a dream. He was scared and realized that the Lord himself had come in the form of a lion.

Chalamayya comprehended that the Lord was warning him in this way for the wrong things that he was doing in the temple. He immediately went to the temple, resigned from the trusteeship and handed over the same to Ramayya in the presence of everyone. Everyone was surprised to see such a change in one night. The priests were very happy that Ramayya again became the trustee. Chalamayya stopped his unjust and miserly ways and spent his life in the service of the Lord.

Fifth Chapter
Long ago, in a town called Rathnagiri there was a carpenter named Kurmanadha. His wife was Indumathi. Kurmanadha and Indumathi were a loving couple and very religious. In what ever way they could they used to perform their daily pujas. Due to the karma of past lives
they did not have children even after 10 years of marriage. Both used to crave for children. Kurmanadha was very skilled in carpentry and used to earn well, hence they led a comfortable life.

Once Kurmanadha got work to make doors, he needed rose wood for that. He went to the merchant Narayana Setti who sold rose wood. The merchant Narayana Setti was a great devotee of Lord Narasimha and used to spend a lot of time in prayers. After taking the required wood, Kurmanadha was about to pay for the same. He then came to know that there was Sri Narasimha vratham taking place in the merchant’s house. Narayana Setti’s house was adjacent to his shop. Kurmananda wanted to see the vratham, so he kept the wood to one side in the shop and went to the merchant’s house. Narayana Setti and his wife were doing the vratham. A lot of relatives and friends had come to participate. Kurmanadha
sat in the last row and heard two stories.

By the time the third story began, his brother Kasinadh came running and said “Brother, a trader has come to our house for you from another town. He wants to get a lot of carpentry work done in his house. I heard that you were here and came to fetch you. Let us go home immediately. If we get late, the trader might go back to his town. Kurmanadha said “Kasi! Narasimha swamy vratham is going on here. Two stories are already over, the third one is going on. Let us listen to the remaining two stories, take the Lord’s prasadam and leave”. However, Kasinadh was not ready to listen and he pressurised his brother to leave. Kurmanadha was adamant that he would not leave until he listened to all the five stories. Despite Kasinadh’s forcing, Kurmanadha made sure he listened to all the stories.

There seemed to be some delay in distributing the prasadam, Kasinadh told his brother that they can come back later and take it. Kurmanadha could not do anything so he thought that he would come back later to take prasadam and went home. By the time they completed talking with the trader it was late in the evening. Kurmanadha completely forgot about the prasadam.

As a result of listening to the stories of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha vratham, Kurmanadha couple were blessed with a son in a year’s time. Due to ill luck the boy was lame. They were happy that they had a son but sad that he was crippled. Although the boy turned seven he could not walk.

Once a sadhu came to their town. Kurmanadha came to know that the Sadhu was knowledgable. Kurmanadha couple met the Sadhu and told him about their son. The Sadhu closed his eyes to meditate and said ‘Kurmanadha! Do you remember some years ago you attended the Sri Lakshmi Narashimha vratha and heard the stories? But you thought you will take the parsadam later and completely forgot about it. The Lord was angry with you and
that is the reason for your son’s lameness. I will tell you a way to get rid of your son’s lameness. Take your son and go to Dhyana Narasimha Swami’s temple that is 20 miles away from here. Perform the Narasimha Swamy vratham there and your son will become alright’.

The next week itself, Kurmanadha and his family went to the temple. The temple was on a hill and there were about 200 steps to climb. Kurmanadha put his son on his shoulder and started climbing the hill. After climbing about fifty steps he got tired and made the boy sit on a step and sat along with him to rest. Wonder of wonders!!! As soon as the boy’s leg touched the steps, his lameness vanished and he started climbing the steps. Kurmanada family’s joy knew no bounds. They realised it was the miracle of Dhyana Narasimha Swamy. They climbed rest of the steps with devotion and took darshan of the Lord. They also performed Sri Lakshmi Narasimha vratham, took the prasadam and returned home
happily. From that day, every month on Swathi nakshatra day they would go to the temple perform the vratham and take blessings of Dhyana Narasimha Swamy.
