The UpAsana of ashTa mukhagaNDabherunda narsimha is always passed down through secret small upAsaka groups ( mostly viravaishanavas ) so it is very difficult to find out any related stuff ins mantrashAtra compendiums. The texts related to ashTa mukhagaNDabherunda narsimha are almost kept hidden from adikshita folks and persons initiated in some other mantra. From fragments of such a text I’m posting “sharbha kruta ashTa mukhagaNDabherunda narsimha stava ” for common welfare of upAsakas & for preservation of such a very rare stuti of asThAsya gaNDabherunda swAmI .

Dear Sri Animesh
Very much delighted to see posting of Sri Ashtamukha Gandabherunda Narasimha Stavam; as you have mentioned, there are many anekamukha, pratimukha mantras of this form is hidden and very tightly kept as secret. Though the intention of those who are keeping this top secret is to prevent misuse of it but after few decades, when their generations are not into practice, pursuing materialistic career, they will fail to understand its value and it will disappear in total one day. If such things happen it is a great loss to manusha vargam, which we should avoid. Purpose of this jivatma is to preserve old scriptures and put them into practice. A person who has realised the value of mantra, veda, tantra only can dedicate his time, energy and life for preserving such great treasures. You had given us a great treasure, what else we need. Your service is really appreciable. Wish you long life with all prosperity.
Dear Shri Animesh
aNeka Koti Sharaba bakshanaaya – indicates Narasimha kills many Sharabas in line with Vaithika Nirnaya.
However, Kanda berunda is not much popular in vaithika kriya but amongst Tantrik, who has difference of opinion on this.
If you have any more details to share on this, be it Stuti or Stava or any text to clarify, it would be very helpful
with thanks and regards
Gandabherunda is tantrika deity so even hoping of his deployment in vaidika karma is like vandhyAputra. According to gandabherunda kalpa shiva in form of sharabha killed narsimha and mahAvishnu took form of gandabherunda to kill sharabha . Actually both shiva and narayana were cursed by bhrigu maharshi to become vichitra pashu rupa so for shApAnugraha both did this lilA . No shaiva vs vaishnava or vice versa element .When ashTAsya mahapakshIrAja will allow I will post the gandabherunda avatarna katha ( mula Sanskrit text from kalpa ) .
Do you have any other stotras, namavalis etc of Sri Gandabherunda?
No I don’t have
