2: PRAYER FOR THE REMOVAL OF THE THREE KINDS OF AFFLICTIONS
Swami Desikan reveals to us that Kaamaasikaa Narasimhan has three eyes, which are in the form of the Sun, Moon and Agni.
He says that the Lord of this Divya Desam is the essence of the secrets revealed by Nrusimha Taapaneeya Upanishad. Swami prays for the Lord to banish the three kinds of Taapas (afflictions) of all of us with His three eyes. The three afflictions are Aadhyaatmikam (physical ills, fear, anger, desire et al), Aadhi Bhowdikham (Ills caused by animals and humans) and Aadhi Daivikam (Cold, heat, storms, rains et al ).
