The concept of reorienting to your true self is old,
but ever fresh and ever inspiring. The
reorientation is followed by reuniting with your
true self. This requires some activity on your
part; and is called SADHANA. In India there are
hymns addressed to different forms of the
Almighty (cosmic consciousness) and included in
daily routine of people; by the seers.
Vishnu Sahasranam is a world famous hymn
from Mahabharata and incorporates around one
thousand names of Lord Vishnu.
These names actually are descriptive terms to
give you the insight of your existence, your true
self, the universe, the cosmic consciousness and
dynamic interactions; the eternal orchestra.
Those (especially children are advised so that
they get longer time of life to reap fruits) who
learn Vishnu Sahasranam; may not understand
the meaning initially; but as and when they begin
to go through the experiences of life; they
gradually blossom in every way with Vishnu
Sahasranam and then start exploring and
appreciating the enlivening insights of Vishnu
This is the reason why most seers have written
commentaries on Vishnu Sahasranam.
My feeble effort in this direction is published in
Marathi with the title, SAHASRANETRA and is
uploaded for free download.
