The Supreme Absolute of the Vedic tradition is known by the divine name Sriman Narayana. Narayana is the source of all reality, transcends all materiality, is never subject to illusion, and is the utmost highest of all beings. In this powerful livestream event, Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya explains to us two verses from the beautiful Vedic scripture known as the Sri Vishnu Sahasranama that reveal what is the true nature of God.
“The sages, Pitaras (departed ancestors), gods, the mahābhūtas (great elements), and their effects, the moving and the non-moving objects which comprise the entire universe – all have been projected from Nārāyaṇa.” (Sri Vishnu Sahasranama, Uttara Bhāgaḥ, 18)
“Vishnu is the unique and unparalleled deity in that He pervades the great elements of different kinds and the three worlds of existence. He is the Super-soul of all beings and their protector. He transcends all of them and is not touched by their defects. Thus He enjoys supreme bliss.” (Sri Vishnu Sahasranama, Uttara Bhāgaḥ, 20)
