Sri LakshmiNrsumhaya Namaha
Sri Vedanta Desika GuravE Namaha

Being a new member of the Prapatti group I have been in the past few days
"surfing" (pardon the rather flippant expression) some archival material
posted to me by some kind bhagavatas to whom I am deeply grateful.I
fervently wish that there is some way in which "bhakthi list archives" can
be independently accessed for the benefit of newcomers like me who will then
have an opportunity to savour the most informative and deeply devotional
discussions on SriVaishnavism that have been held in the past amongst

Particularly the posting on Sudarsnaashtakam was a joy to read.

When on the subject of Sri Sudarsna one almost reflexively dwells on Sri
Lakshmi Nrsumhan.

There is an exquisite stotra on the Lord in the Ahirbudhnya Samhitam where
Lord Shiva himself has sung the glory of Lord Nrusumhan. The stotra of 12
verses is called "Mantra-raja-pada stotra". It is said that the Nrusumha
Mantram is embedded in the stotra.The stotra is said to bestow the
"paripurna kataksha" of the Lord on he who recites it with implicit faith.

I humbly request those bhagavattOmas in the group who may have "anubhavam"
of this stotra to please share it with us.
