Narasimha is the Hindu god, Vishnu’s fourth avatar. This deity is said to have incarnated as a half-man, half-lion to defeat Hiranyakashipu, restore dharma, and bring an end to persecution on the basis of religion.

How to chant protection mantras
Now that you know these essential protection mantras, I’ll next show you how to chant them. To chant mantras for protection, you need to have your quiet space – which is a place free from noise and distraction.
Next, you must condition your mind and have an inner conviction in the power of the protection mantras you’re about to chant.
I recommend that you practice this as the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning. Practicing the protection mantra later in the evenings is also beneficial for protecting you as you sleep.
When your mind is clear and receptive, you have to ensure that your body is in a state of comfort when you chant these sacred sounds. Get your posture right – keep your back straight. You may go with the basic yoga asana – Lotus position or stay on a meditation cushion or mat.
To begin, record the protection mantra and play it repeatedly. This should get you started, but it’s not sufficient, because it is crucial that you hear yourself and observe the reaction of your body every time you say these words. Therefore, you have to turn off the recording and repeat the chants yourself.
Take note of how many times you are repeating the mantras, and ensure that the total number is a multiple of nine. For example, 9 times, 18 times, 54 times, 90 times, 108 times, etc. You require a total of 108 repetitions for the maximum impact. You can count 108-stone mala beads to keep track of the number of repetitions.
Note that there would be a lot of negativity around you, and so you need so much focus to visualize the deity to whom you’re chanting these protection mantras. This is why visualization is crucial. Simply close your eyes and imagine what goes on beyond the eyes to achieve this.
