The Saiva view is not acceptable to Advaita. Adi Sankara has rejected
Saiva Pasupata views.
In Sankara Digvijaya there is one incident. One Kapalika tried to
sacrifice Adi Sankara to Siva. But Padmapada prayed to Narasimha.
Narasimha came and killed the Kapalika and saved Adi Sankara.
This incident is showing we have to worship Narasimha but not Sarabha
tomorrow. Many Smarta Brahmins have Lakshmi Narasimha as Family god. I
have not heard people with Sarabha as Family god.
