Shri Shanaishcara-krita Shri Narasimha Stuti
Everyone is afraid of the malefic planet Shani because generally he is associated with extreme sorrow and suffering. However, Shanideva himself has devised a way of solving this problem by obtaining the blessings of Lord Nrisimha. Shani made an agreement with the Lord that he would never trouble those who recite his Nrisimha Stuti when they are facing troubles related to dvadasha-ashtama-pancama (a situation where Shani-kata lasts for 7 1/2 births, I think..) If one recites with devotion Shani’s Shri Nrisimha Stuti, especially on Shanivara (Saturdays) and when Shani graha comes to 12-8-5 janma rashi, one will please the Lord who is the Supersoul of Shanaishchara and the Lord will remove all obstacles and suffering and bless His devotee.

He is the savior for those who are helpless who desire to seek refuge in Him. When the demigods of innumerable planets bow down to His lotus feet, the bright jewels from their crowns are reflected on His toenails which gives the impression that lamps are being waved in front of them. Unto these lotus feet, Shanideva prostrated and prayed (in the court of Brahma).

Shri Shani said By the mercy of the dust of Your lotus feet which destroy a multitude of sins, grant infinite auspiciousness to Your devotee who always worships Your lotus feet with devotion. O Lord Nrisimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance. sarvatra cancalataya sthitayapi lakshmyah | brahmadi-vandya-padaya stirayanya sevi || padaravinda-yugalam parama-dharena | sa tvam nrisimha mayi dehi kripa valokam||3|| Your lotus feet are worshipped by Goddess Lakshmi, even though She is fickle by nature (cancala) and by Lord Brahma and Lord Shiva whose feet are worthy of worship with devotion. O Lord Nrisimha, please bestow upon me Your merciful side-long glance.
