Narasimha Runa Vimochana Stotram

06/22/2010

The Sanskrit word Runa stands for debt. All human beings with their very conception incur four kinds of debt . The four  Runa’s are

1.Pitri Runa

2.Deva Runa

3.Rishi Runa

4.Manushya Runa

The first Runa is to be paid back by performing the Pitri Tarpana daily as you would not be here if your forefathers had decided not to marry.It is a different story that a sanyasi removes the Pitri Runa of  atleast eight of the previous generations when he decides to become one .However not everybody can become a true renunciate . Coming back to the second Runa it is to be paid back by performing Yagnas which benefit all of mankind. The third Rishi runa has to be paid back by spreading knowledge among people . The fourth Manushya Runa is to be paid by treating all living things kindly and in helping mitigate their problems.

In addition to these all of us accumulate many karmic debts to our parents and family members. The present birth one enjoys and the present relations one has are all caused by previous karma and cannot be changed. One cannot choose the parents he or she is born to ,nor can one choose the children he or she will have nor can one decide the time of his birth or death.  The paying back of all your debts is the stage when your karmic account is clean and you reach moksha. This is a very exalted stage and all of us continue to pay back some debts while accumulating new ones. The grace of god is definetly needed to help in this matter by removing some of the debts .

Narasimha Runa Vimochana Stotram is one of the most powerful stotras to Lord Narasimha to save us from the karmic debts.In case you are wondering Mars and Saturn are the two planets which are responsible for most of the karmic debts in one’s horoscope . Anyone who recites 108 counts of this stotra with full faith will also be saved from financial difficulties. What matters the most is the faith and beleif of the reciting person. This stotra has been recommended since ancient times by astrologers to cure many problems.

One example of how Mars is used in astrology to diagnose problems

For the purpose of completion of the need of the devas,
You appeared from a pillar in a palace,

Who removes fear of elephants, which guard all directions,

Sri nrusimham mahaveeram namami runa mukthaye. 6

God who was kind to Prahlada,
The lord of Lakshmi and he who ripped apart the king of demons,

Sri nrusimham mahaveeram namami runa mukthaye. 7

God who gives freedom from fear to devotes,
Who are being troubled by cruel planets,

Sri nrusimham mahaveeram namami runa mukthaye. 8

God who is the lord of Vedas, Vedanta and sacrifices,
Who is worshipped by Brahma, Rudra and others,
Oh Narasimha, who is a great warrior,
I salute you to get rid of my debts.

Ya idam padathe nithyam, runa mochana samgnakam,
Anruni jayathe sathyo, danam seegramavapnuyath. 9

He who reads daily this prayer for getting rid of debts,
Would surely become debtless and would soon earn lot of money.
