1. Prahlada prays to Nrsimha-deva: how to escape from the material world

    Therefore, although I was born in a demoniac family, I may without a doubt offer prayers to the Lord with full endeavor, as far as my intelligence allows. Anyone who has been forced by ignorance to enter the material world may be purified of material life if he offers prayers to the Lord and hears the Lord’s glories.

    Srila Prabhupada’s translation of SB 7.9.12
