Lord Shri Vishnu Sahasranama Part: 103

Posted by kathavarta on May 5, 2011

Adharanilayo dhata pushpahasah prajagarah
Urdhvagah sat-pathacharah pranadah pranavah panah ..102

950. Adharanilayo: One who is the support of even all the basic supporting factors like the five elements – Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth.

“One who is the fundamental sustainer” –the support for all that exists. All things and all beings are supported by the earth which itself rests upon the lord, the self, that each mind projects the entire world of names and forms.

951. Adhata: One who is one’s own support and therefore does not require another support.

“Above whom there is no other to control or to command” –One who is the supreme controller of all. He is the Law; the eternal truth is that the Law and the Law-Giver are one and the same.

952. Pushpahasah: One whose manifestation as the universe resembles the Hasa or blooming of buds into flowers.

“He who shines like an opening flower.” The bud opens and manifests into the lord at the time of deluge existed as the total Unmanifest, and thereafter, at the maturity of the vaasanaas, opens up as the manifest world of things and beings, He came to be indicated by this term.

953. Prajagarah: One who is particularly awake, because He is eternal Awareness.

“Ever-Awaked” –He who knows no sleep. Sleep means ‘non-apprehension.’ This ‘non-apprehension’ of reality is called ‘Avidyaa’ (nescience) which produces our ‘mis-apprehension’ of I and mine, and the world of pains and shocks. Since Narayana is the self, He is ‘Ever-available” and is never asleep to his Eternal-Divine-Nature.

954. Urdhvagah: One who is above everything.

“One who walks the path of truth” –a path which other implicitly follow to reach the Truth Inifinite. “Whatever an adored one does, other people will implicitly follow,” warns Krishna in Bhagava Geeta. Lord is the standard of perfection” and all devotees place him as the ideal –trying to imitate, in their own lives, His Absolute Goodness, Absolute Love and Absolute Peace.

955. Sat-pathacharah: One who follows the conduct of the good.

956. Pranadah: One who givesback life to dead ones as in the case of Parikshit.

“One who gives ‘Praana’ to all.” The term ‘Praana’ in our Sastras means the physiological functions, the manifestations of life in man. Therefore, Narayana, the self, is the Vital Source from which all sense organs, mind and intellect barrow their power of perception, capacities of feeling and their faculties of thinking and understanding.

957. Pranavah: Pranava (Aum) the manifesting sound symbol of Brahman. As He is inseparably related with Pranava, He is called Pranava.

Aum-kaara is Pranava.” The Infinite reality is indicated by ‘AUM’ in the Vedas. ‘AUM’ is the manifesting sound of the supreme self. Therefore, Sree Narayana is called ‘Pranavah’: meaning he is of the ‘nature of Aumkaara.”

958. Panah: It comes from the root ‘Prana’ meaning transaction. So one who bestows the fruits of Karma on all according to their Karma.

“The supreme Manager of the universe.” The root ‘Pana’ means “to transact.” By giving the exact rewards for all actions, Lord both orders and justly manages all activities of each individuals and things constituting this scientifically precise universe.

Lord Shri Vishnu Sahasranama Part: 52

Posted by kathavarta on October 26, 2009

Dharmagub dharmakrud dharmi sad-asatksharam aksharam
Avigyata sahashramsur vidhata kruta-lakshanah ..51

(475) Dharmagub: One who protects the Dharma.
In the Bhagvad Gita the Lord says: “In every cycle I shall manifest for re-establishing Dharma.”

(476) Dharmakrud: Though above. Dharma and Adharma, He performs Dharma in order to keep up the traditions in respect of it.
One who acts Dharma. Though He, as the Absolute Consciousness that illuminates everything, is beyond all Dharma and Adharma, Sri Narayana exemplifies what is the righteousness by His own conduct. He is, therefore, called as Dharma-Pravartaka. In the various incarnations, the Lord has exemplified how the generation should live under the ever-changing kaleidoscopic pattern of circumstances that play around us at all times.

(477) Dharmi: One who upholds Dharma.
The Supporter of Dharma; meaning the very Seat of all Dharma. Just as the waves exist in the ocean; just as the cotton supports the cloth; just as all the ornaments exist in gold-so Sri Narayana, the Infinite Truth is the very essence and support of the entire universe. Narayana is the Throne at which all righteousness take their refuge. Without direct reference to Him and His Glory, righteousness has no meaning; just as law books of a country are empty pages when the Government falls.

(478) Sat (or Sad): The Parabhrahman who is of the nature of truth.
The Existence in all things and beings is the same ever, and it is All-pervading. The sun exists; the space between the sun and the earth exists; the ocean and the creatures therein exist; the physiological organs and their functions, mind and its activities, the intellect and its agitations -all exist. This Ever-present Principle of Existence is Sri Narayana. That which remains the same without any change in and through all changes, unaffected ever, same in the past, present and the future is called in Vedanta as ‘Satya.’ One who has all these natures is called Sat-Purusha. In the Upanishads, the Supreme Brahman is indicated as ‘Satya’ –“This, O Child, indeed was Sat.” In the Gita while describing the Changeless Factor behind the eternally changing matter, Bhagavan says: “That which is the All-pervading in this world, that alone is indestructible and no one can destroy it.”

(479) Asat: As the Aparabhrahma has manifested as the world He is called Asat (not having reality).
The Conditioned; Limited; the One who appears at this moment as the limited, conditioned, and therefore confined only to the world of plurality. That which actually is not, but apparently seems to be there, is called a delusion and this is indicated by the word “ A-Sat.” In the Vedantic terminology, higher-Self (Param) is ever Immutable and Eternal, while the lower-Self (Aparam) constituted of all the universe of manifested things and beings, is mutable and ephemeral. Sri Narayana Himself is, in His Apara nature, expressing as the world of the many that we today recognise around us. Bhagavan Sri Krishna confesses to Arjuna in the Bhagvad Gita: “Arjuna, I am at once immortality and mortality. I am both existence and non-existence.”

(480) Ksharam: All beings subjected to change.
The Perishing. One who is the very Immutable Self in all things, that appears to suffer from constant mutation: The changeless-core in the midst of all the changes. All the changeable and variable things and beings of the Universe play in Him who is the only Substratum and, therefore, the Immutable Eternal Reality is called here as the Mutable; the changing and the dying waves are all ever nothing but the changeless ocean indeed.

(481) Aksharam: The changeless one.
Imperishable. In order to recognize the change, there must be a changeless entity knowing it. If one ornament is to become another, there must be indeed the changeless consistent gold permanently supporting it all the time. In the same way, there must be a Changeless Factor which must be the essential core, that holds together the pattern of the constant changes, which together constitute the play of the universe. This Changeless Factor is called Narayana. Krishna says in Bhagvad Gita: “all creatures together constitute the Kshara-purusha and the Changeless in an creatures is the Akshara-purusha.”

(482) Avigyata: One who is without the attributes of a Jiva or vigyata like sense of agency etc.
The Non-knower. Here we must carefully understand the term ‘knower.’ The “knower” of the emotions and thoughts is the Self, imprisoned in the body, mind and the intellect, and, therefore, functioning as the perceiver, feeler, thinker-called in the Vedanta Shashtra as the “Jeeva,” This individualised personality is the ‘doer’ and the ‘enjoyer’, in the calamitous world of activities. Sri Narayana is the Pure-Self, who has not been contaminated by the matter- vestures and their agitated-nature, and the consequent sorrows. Therefore, ‘Vishnu,’ the Pure-Self, is indicated here as Non- Knower (Avijnaataa), meaning the “Jeeva.”

(483) Sahashramshur: One with numerous rays, that is the Sun.
The thousand-rayed. As the Pure Consciousness, He is effulgent, and in the Upanishads we read that even the sun, moon and stars gain their effulgence from Him alone. In fact the Upanishads conclude that all living creatures are resplendent after His effulgence alone. Or, we can say that it means Sri Narayana, in the form of the Sun, illumines and nourishes the world of living creatures; because the name of the Sun in Sanskrit is ‘Sahasraamsuh.’ In praising the Lord Sun it is usual to sing of him as ‘Suryanaaraayana.’

(484) Vidhata: One who is the unique support of all agencies like Ananta who bear the whole universe.
All-supporter .As the final sub- stratum for everything, the Lord supports the entire universe of living creatures, and nobody supports Him, He alone is His own support. The Lord is at once the material, instrumental and the efficient causes for the universe of forms.

(485) Krutalakshanah: One who is of the nature of consciousness.
One who is famous because of six qualities, such as glory, righteousness, fame, wealth, knowledge and detachment. Again following the Puranic literature, Sri Narayana is the one who made on His own bosom the great mark of the feet of Maharishi Bhrigu. In fact from the standpoint of pure Vedanta, the term indicates the Ever-existing Pure Consciousness which is the very goal (Lakshana) to be ultimately achieved for liberation. Lakshana also means the scriptural textbooks and, therefore, the term also can mean He who is the author (Krita) of the Scriptures (Lakshana).

Lord Shri Vishnu Sahasranama Part: 51

Posted by kathavarta on October 26, 2009

Svapanah svavasho vyapi naikatma naika-karma-krut
Vatsaro vatsalo vatsi ratna-garbho dhaneshvarah ..50

(465) Svapanah: One who enfolds the Jivas in the sleep of Ajnana.
One who puts people to sleep; stupefying. Lord Vishnu as Isvara has for Himself the total Vaasanaa (Maayaa) as an equipment for His self-expression as Eesvara (Narayana). He, through His Maayaa, veils each individual and renders them ignorant of their own divine nature. This “veiling-power” (Aavarana Sakti) creates many agitations (Vikshepa), due to which individuals rush out for sense-gratification. Since Isvara, thus, with His Maayaa-power deludes everybody, He gathers to Himself this epithet Svaapanah meaning “the mighty stupefying force.”

(466) Svavasho: One who is dominated by oneself and not anything else, as He is the cause of the whole cosmic process.
The One who has everything under His own personal control; the totally independent. Since He is the Supreme Consciousness, all living creatures and phenomenal powers are functioning by His grace, drawing their capacities to exist and act from Him only. If He withdraws His patronage everything in this Universe must stop functioning immediately. He is supremely independent inasmuch as, though the world-of-objects needs Him, He is entirely self-sufficient and needs no world for His Existence. Thus He is totally free. The waves need the ocean, but the ocean is totally independent of the waves’ existence.

(467) Vyapi: One who interpenetrates everything like Akasha.
All-pervading. Pervasiveness in philosophy indicates subtlety. Thus All-pervading means that which is “subtler than the subtlest.” This concept is again sustained by the physical observations in the world. The cause always pervades all the effects; the gold pervades all ornaments. The entire universe is an effect and He being the Cause, He pervades all and everything at all times. Thus the All-pervading, in its suggestion, indicates that He is the Ultimate-cause and Himself in His pervasiveness is ever-present everywhere and in everything, presiding over all behaviours, actions and work, everywhere in the universe.

(468) Naikatma: One who manifests in different forms as the subsidiary agencies causing the various cosmic processes.
Many-souled. Lord, the Infinite, though ever the one, expresses Himself as the many, while manifesting Himself, in the form of the universe. It is He, the One Great Consciousness, that expresses Himself as the creator, sustainer and destroyer-in order to maintain the play of the eternal dance, among the phenomenal things and deeds. He who becomes the Trinity is the great Vishnu Tattva.

(469) Naika-karma-krut: One who engages in innumerable activities in the process of creation, sustentation etc.
The one does many actions, as He is the one Lord of all evolution, preservation, and involation of the universe. where he is not presiding over, no activity can ever take place.

(470) Vatsaro: One in whom everything dwells.
The Abode of the Lord. Not only Lord is living in each one of us our inner-Soul (Antaryaamee) but He is at once, the All-prevading Essence in which, the entire universe exists, and as such, He alone is the Abode of the creatures, He is the endless ‘time’ and the infinite ‘space’ at once. for, in the time-space field alone do things exist. the term “Vatsa,” in sanskrit also means “calf.” the world under discussion, therefore, can also mean “one who gives away claves.” this has reference to krishna who returned to Gopas all the calves, when they were taken away by the enemy.

(471) Vatsalo: One who has love for His devotees.
The supremely affectionate. One who loves his devotees extremely. Narayana is one who has got more affection towards his devotees that all the paternal and maternal love in the world put together. Supreme love is the meaning of the world ‘Vatsalah;’ Lord Narayana is Love Incarnate.
(472) Vatsi: One who protects those who are dear to Him.
The Father. One who has infinite number of children; Lord considers the entire living kingdom as His own children; and nurses and nourishes them. It can also be interpreted as one who trains and protects the calves in the herd.

(473) Ratna-garbho: The Ocean is so called because gems are found in its depths. As the Lord has taken the form of the ocean, He is called by this name.

The Jewel-wombed. Like the ocean, One who has rich wealth concealed in Himself.

On the whole, the term Ratna-garbhah only means that the Lord is quick in His bestowing all the desired objects on His devotees.

(474) Dhaneshvarah: One who is the Lord of all wealth.
The Lord of wealth. Here the term “Wealth” means all the good things in the universe- all objects of happiness. He is described in the Puranas as the Lord of the Goddess Lakshmi (Lakshmipati) and as such He is ever the Master-of-all-wealth. The greatest of wealth is, of course, the liberation, and Lord Narayana is the Isvara of this great wealth, He blesses the true devotees with the experience of complete liberation from the entanglements and sorrows of the vestures of matter around us.
