Namaste All
The nRsimha karAvalamba stotraM is said to have been composed by Sri
Shankara BhagavatpAda. Even if a later pontiff of the Sringeri Matha
composed it, it remains a popular and significant hymn.

However there are too many variants with significant divergence not just in
a few words here and there, which can be ignored as pAThAntara but in even
the size of the hymn itself.

If someone is aware of something like a critical version of the same,
kindly share it. This has been a source of some doubt since years and any
input is appreciated.

It would be very helpful.

Some versions...
