Everyone is afraid of the malefic planet Shani (Saturn) because generally he is associated with extreme sorrow and suffering. However, Shanideva himself has devised a way of solving this problem by obtaining the blessings of Lord Nrsimha.

Shani made an agreement with the Lord that he would never trouble those who recite his Nrsimha Stuti when they are facing troubles related to dvadasha-ashtama-panchama (a situation where Sani-käta lasts for 7 1/2 births) If one recites with devotion Shani’s Sri Nrsimha Stuti, especially on Shanivara (Saturdays) and when Shani graha comes to 12-8-5 Janma Rashi or 10th AL, one will please the Lord who is the Supersoul of Shanaishchara and the Lord will remove all obstacles and suffering and bless His devotee.

Sri Krishna Uvacha-
sulabho bhakti yuktänäm durdarsho dushta chetasäm |
ananya gatikänäm cha prabhuhu bhaktaika-vatsalah || 1 ||
Shanaishcharastatra nrsimha-devastutim chakärämala-chitta-vrittihi |
pranamya sashtangama shesha-lokaha kirita niräjita päda-padmam || 2 ||
Lord Nrsimàhadeva is easily accessible to the devotees and punishes those who are evil-minded. He is the saviour for those who are helpless who desire to seek refuge in Him. When the demigods of innumerable planets bow down to His lotus feet, the bright jewels from their crowns are reflected on His toenails which gives the impression that lamps are being waved in front of them. Unto His lotus feet, Sanideva prostrated and prayed (in the court of Brahmä).

Sri Shanir-uvächa -
yat päda-pankaja-rajaha paramädharena
samsevitam sakala kalmasha räshi-naäsham |
kalyäna kärakama sheshanijänugänam |
sa tvam nrsimha mayi dehi krupä-valokam ||3||
Sri Shani said - By the mercy of the dust of Your lotus feet which destroy a multitude of sins, grant infinite auspiciousness to Your devotee who always worships Your lotus feet with devotion. O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.

sarvatra chanchalatayä sthitayäpi laksmyäh |
brahmädi-vandya-padayä stirayänya sevi ||
pädäravinda-yugalam paramä-dharena |
sa tvam nrsimha mayi dehi krupä valokam ||4||
Your lotus feet are worshipped by Goddess Lakshmi, even though She is fickle by nature (chanchala [meaning that She, or wealth, easily moves from one place to another, though She is ever-steady in Her devotion to the Lord]) and by Lord Brahmä and Lord Siva whose feet are worthy of worship with devotion. O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.

yad rüpamägama-Shirah pratipädhyamädhya |
mädhyätmikädi paritäpa haram vichintyam ||
yogésvarai rapathagäkhila dosa sanghaih |
sa tvam nrsimha mayi dehi kurpä-valokam ||5||
By contemplating or meditating upon Your appearance, which is expounded in the Vedas extensively, the best of the saints are liberated from the three-fold miseries and from all misfortunes. O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.

prahläda bhakta vachasä hariräviräsi |
stambhe hiranyakashipum ya udhärabhävaha ||
urvornidhäya tadhuro nakhärai rdadhära |
sa tvam nrsimha mayi dehi krupä-valokam ||6||
By the word of His devotee named Prahläda, Lord Hari, who is generous and kind, appeared from a pillar and by placing Hiranyakasipu on His thighs split open his stomach with His nails. O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.

yo naija bhaktamanalämbudhi bhüdharogra |
shringa-prapäta visha dhanti sarisrupebhyaha |
sarvätmakaù parama-käruniko raraksa |
sa tvam nrsimha mayi dehi krpä-valokam ||7||
You protected your own devotee Prahläda from a raging fire, the deep ocean, from falling from a tall mountain peak, poison, a mad elephant and the fangs of poisonous serpents. You are omnipresent and supremely generous. O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.

yannirvikära para-rüpa vichintanena |
yogishvarä vishayaveeta samastarägäha ||
vishränti mäpura-vinäsha vatim paräkhyäm |
sa tvam nrsimha mayi dehi krupä-valokam ||8||
By meditating upon He whose great form is devoid of imperfections, the best of the saints attained liberation from the ocean of materialistic attachments and obtained unmitigated salvation. O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.

yad rüpamugra parimardana bhäva shäli |
sachintanena sakalägha vinäsha käri |
bhüta jvara graha samudbhava bhiti näsham |
sa tvam nrsimha mayi dehi krupä-valokam ||9||
By meditating upon He whose form is fearsome, all peace, happiness and prosperity can be obtained, all sins can be obliterated, the fear arising from evil spirits, fevers and unfavorable planetary positions can be removed, O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.

yasyottamam yasha umä-pati padma-janma |
shakrädi daivata sabhäsu samasta-gitam ||
shrutyaiva sarvashamala prashamaika daksham |
sa tvam nrsimha mayi dehi krupä-valokam ||10||
Your transcendental fame is sung gloriously in all the divine assemblies of Shiva, Brahmä and Indra, etc. and whose power is steadfast in wiping out all impurities, O Lord Nrsimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.

Sri Krishna Uvacha-

evam shrutvä stutim devah shaninäm kalpitäm harihi |
uvähca brahma vrundastam shanim sadbhakta-vatsalaha ||11||
On listening to the heartfelt prayer composed by Sanideva in the assembly of Lord Brahmä, Lord Hari who is ever compassionate to His devotees, spoke to Sanideva as follows.

Sri nrsimha uvächa -

prasannoham shane tubhyam |
varam varaya shobhanam ||
yam vänchasi tameva tvam |
sarva-loka hitävaham ||12||
Sri Nrsimha said – O Sani, I am pleased with your devotion. What ever you desire that will benefit the world, ask for that kind of boon and I will grant it.

Sri Shanir uvächa -
nrsimha tvam mayi krupäm kuru deva dayä-nidhe |
madväsarastava pritikaraha syat devatä-pate ||13||
matkrutam tvatparam stotram shrunvanti cha patanti cha |
sarvän käman pürayetästeshämtvam loka-bhävanah ||14||
SrI Sanideva replied – O Lord Nrsimha, O reservoir of compassion, please be kind to me. O Lord of all gods, let my week-day (Saturday) be Your favorite day. O Purifier of all the worlds, may You fulfill the desires of all those who listen to or read this great prayer to You composed by me.”

Sri nrsimha uvächa -
tathaivästu shaneham vairakso-bhuvana samsthitah |
bhakta kämän pürayishye tvam mamaikam vacha shrinu ||15||
tvat kritam mat param stotram yah patet shrunoti yah |
dvädashasthama janmastäm tadbhayam mästu tasya vai ||16||
Sri Nrsimha said – O Sani, let it be so! By virtue of My being the universal protector (raksobhuvana), I fulfill the desires of all My devotees. Please listen to My words - let there be no fear of the twelfth and eighth birth positions (and implicitly any unfavorable birth positions) and consequent troubles from you for any one who reads or listens to this prayer to Me composed by you.
Shanirnaraharim devam tatheti pratyuvächa ha

tatah parama-santustahajayeti munayovadan ||17||
Then Sanideva replied to Lord Narahari that he would follow the Lord’s instructions. Then the joyful saints and sages present there (in Brahma’s assembly) responded with cries of, ‘jaya, jaya!’”.

Sri krishna uvächa -
itam shanaisvarasyäta nrisimha deva |
samvädametat stavanam cha mänavah ||
shrunoti yah shrävayate cha bhaktyä
sarvänyäbhisthäni cha vindate dhruvam ||18||
Sri Krishna told Dharmaräja, “Whoever listens to or recites this conversation between Sanideva and Lord Nrisimha in the form of this prayer of devotion will definitely have all desires fulfilled and will always rejoice.”

iti Sri bhavisyottara puräne rakshobhuvana mahätme sri
Shanaishchara kruta Sri nrusimha stuti sampürnam||
Thus ends the prayers offered from the Bhavisyoattara Purana to the universal protector Sri Nrisimha by the great soul Sani.
