The unique power of the extraordinary combination of Sri Sudharshana and Sri Naarasimha cannot be overstated. It has to be experienced. The greatest example is the quick response of Sri Sudharshana to Swami Desikan’s prayer to him in his Sudharshanaashtakam when hundreds of people were dying due to a strange epidemic. Sudharshana-Naarasimha yanthras have helped people over centuries off difficulties and evils.
The combined power of the Lord Himself as Naarasimha and Sudharshana (with delegated power) is so formidable that only foolish demons had posed a challenge and got annihilated. We shall be covering in this short monograph, Sudharshana’s greatness as depicted in the Ahirbhudhnya Samhitha, manthras, yanthras, with Naarasimha, and a review of religious literature on Sudharshana.
