Nṛvarāha (नृवराह) refers to one of the various Vibhava manifestations according to the Īśvarasaṃhitā 24.262-264.—Accordingly, “one should meditate upon that Supreme Lord who is unborn, who is like the atasī flower, holding conch, discus and mace, having the parts to be the instruments for sacrifice, who is capable of lifting up those, who are immersed (in worldly bondage), who provide support for His glorious power, who is resplendent with desire, knowledge and activity, ever-rising like the billows of the sparks (of fire) of various kinds of specific knowledge, who sustains the (universe), staying (stable), pleasing to the heart, not wanting (in anything) powerful, producing a loud sound, and who could not be spoken about”.
These Vibhavas (e.g., Nṛvarāha) represent the third of the five-fold manifestation of the Supreme Consciousness the Pāñcarātrins believe in.
Pancaratra (पाञ्चरात्र, pāñcarātra) represents a tradition of Hinduism where Narayana is revered and worshipped. Closeley related to Vaishnavism, the Pancaratra literature includes various Agamas and tantras incorporating many Vaishnava philosophies.
