Manyu Suktham is greatly revered and first line translates, ‘Oh god of anger with sharp nails..’, therefore, this hymn is dedicated to the Avatar God. In the classic epic Mahabharata, Bheema thought of Lord Narasimha and chanted this suktham while he tore apart Duryodhana. There’s an interesting tale of how this sukhta came into existence.The seer or mantra drashta of this suktha is Manyu, son of Tapo Muni.
There was an outbreak of civil war in the kingdom and a king of that time sought refuge in the Seer Manyu. He said that only the presiding deity of anger could relieve the king. The divine sage envisioned the suktha and immediately 14 riks (the Vedic verses with chandas or metres are called Rik) spurted out from him. This resulted in the enemies fleeing and the king was thus saved.
