Sarabeswara Astothra Prathyingara Female Narasimha

Sarabeswara is an Avatar of Lord Shiva and Prthaynkara ,an Amsa ,part manifestation of  Devi.

Narasimha, an a Man Lion Avatar of Vishnu, after killing Hiranyakasipu, remained furious and was ferocious, having tasted Blood, which induced Rajo Guna.

Devathas effort to calm Him down were of no avail.

At the behest of the Devas, Lord Shiva took the form of Sarabeswara, Bird Animal.

To cool down Vishnu, (it may be noted that Vishnu is known for His Calm and Serene demeanor),Lord Shiva , (with the help of Devi), had two wings, Prathyankara and Soolini, the parivaras of Devi .

The two wings of the Saraba could not cool down Narasimha, despite the wings fanning Him.

Out of Vishnu’s anger rose Kandaberunda and it started attacking Shiva.

Shiva then ordered Prathyankara to fight.

Prathyankara killed Kandaberuna and drank his blood.

Devi Pratyangira was released from his wings and took the female form of Narasimha and calmed down Lord Narasimha.

She is also known as Narasimhika [in Kalisahasranama Stotram).

Sobered Narasimha then cooled down.

Narasimha then performed an Astotra for Lord Shiva.

Lord Shiva then revealed to all the Devas that “to annihilate the Asura, Lord Narasimha came, and to appease Lord Narasimha, I have come as Sarabeswara. Be aware that we are both one and the same like water and water, milk and milk, ghee and ghee, both inseparable and to be worshipped as one”.

“Yatha Jaley Jalam, Kshiptham, Ksheeram, Ksheeray Kruthang Kruthey|
Yekayeva Thatha Vishnu: Shiva Leetho Nachanyatha”||

Lord Brahma, out of gratitude for saving the universe from the anger of Sri Narasimha, worshipped Lord Sarabeswara with “Sri Sarabeswara Ashtothra”.

The advent of Sri Sarabeswara has been vividly mentioned in Atharva Veda, Linga Purana, Skanda Purana and Brahmanda Purana. Special mention is also made in Rigveda and Thaitriya as well, at the Uttara bhaga of Sri Lalitha Sahasranama.

“Paayaanno Deva: Sarabasthva Payaath
Sathaarirogath Vipinorakaapyam
Vaiswanaro Kugari Ritchakebya:
Prethebyo Bhoothebyo Rusha: Krudanthan” ||
(Atharva Veda) 

The Veda mantras affirm that all our sins are wiped off by chanting the powerful mantra of Sri Sarabha. Sage Veda Vyasa in his Linga Purana (96th Chapter) categorically says that those who worship Sri Sarabeswara, will get rid of all the afflictions caused by bad dreams, chronic ailments, poisonous bites, besides the great disasters caused by earthquake, floods, cyclone, thunder, lightning and such bad conglomerations.

“Sarva Vigna Prasamanam, Sarva Vyadi Vinasanam
Arichakra Prasamanam, Sarva Dukka Vinasanam,
Atraanyothpada Bookamba thaavagni Paamasu Vrishtisu
Thatho duswapna Samanam, Sarvabhootha Nivaranam,
Vishagraha Kshayakaram Puthra powthraadhi Vardhanam,
Thathraksha Daaranam Kuryaath Jangamaangey Varaananey”|| Linga Purana – 96
