Lord Shiva is considered throughout the Vedic scriptures to be the greatest of all Vaishnavas (Srimad Bhagavatam, 12.13.16, et al). Indeed, Lord Shiva himself declares that it is upon Sri Vishnu alone that he himself meditates ((Padma Purana, Brhad-Vishnu-Sahasranama-Stotra, Uttara-Khanda, 72.335, et al). In this very special talk, Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya will be revealing the direct teachings of Lord Shiva on what constitutes the supreme nature of Brahman (God).
“Mahadeva (Shiva) said: There is no better abode than Vishnu. There is no greater penance than Vishnu. There is no greater religious merit than Vishnu. There is no hymn that does not pertain to Vishnu. There is no greater truth than Vishnu. There is no greater sacrifice than Vishnu. There is no greater meditation than upon Vishnu. There is no better recourse than Vishnu. For him who has devotion to Vishnu, what is the use of many hymns, and very extensive sacred texts and thousands of vajapeya sacrifices? Vishnu is full of all sacred places. The Lord is full of all sacred texts. Vishnu is full of all sacrifices. I am telling the truth and the truth only. I have told you this, which is the full essence of all that which pertains to Brahman.” (Padma Purana, 6.71.309-312)
