Meaning of Loka Veeram

Could you pl. send me the meaning of lokaveeram fully...... ?

Sripradha Srikanthan, Coimbatore
-------------------------------------------------

Aravind Subramanyam - as a person with very little knowledge started to enter the world of Sanskrit - started some ten years back - only with this Loka Veeram....

And “my” Lord Hariharaputra took care of me…

Thank you for reminding me the yester years...

This once unlettered boy, whom He took under his benign and protective care, as a fond father would do, and made him what he is today, submits ananta koti namaskarams with reverence and humility to ever merciful Bhakta Paripala Maha Sastha

Now the Slokas and their meaning –
