I salute you to get rid of my debts

Krooragrahai peedithanam bhakthanam abhaya pradham,
Sri nrusimham mahaveeram namami runa mukthaye., 7

God who gives freedom from fear to devotes,
Who are being troubled by cruel planets,
Oh Narasimha who is a great warrior,
I salute you to get rid of my debts.

Veda vedantha yagnesam, brahma rudradhi vandhitham,
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.
