O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! O Lord Hari, who have assumed the form of
half-man, half-lion! All glories to You! Just as one can easily crush a
wasp between one's fingernails, so in the same way the body of the
wasplike demon Hiranyakasipu has been ripped apart by the wonderful
pointed nails on Your beautiful lotus hands.

All glories to Lord Nrsimha
