Sri Harinamashtakam for Abundance in Life

Vishnu is the preserver who is responsible for the order and regularity of the worlds and the duties that ensure the orderly progression of the worlds and beings, their bondage and liberation. In the body and in Nature he represents the binding, balancing and purifying the quality of sattva. In the sky, as the Aditya, he represents the shining and heating power of the sun. His consort is Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and abundance. His name Vishnu may have been derived from the root words vishir (to pervade), vish (spread or enter), or vishli (surround). According to this interpretation, Vishnu means one or more of the following.

  • The all-pervading light (visir) in the space,
  • He who spreads in all directions (visnati),
  • He who enters (visati) the worlds, our hearts and minds as the light
  • He who surrounds (visli) us or the worlds with light.

Vis also means material objects. Therefore, Vishnu may also means he who removes or burns our attachments to material objects. As the light in the sky, Vishnu overcomes all darkness and prevails upon the worlds. The world is nourished and sustained by his effulgence. Of the four states, Vishnu as the preserver repersents the dream states (svapnavastha). The world in which we live is but the dream of Narayana only.

Sri Harinamashtakam is a hymn praising Lord Vishnu and is capable of bringing amazing results.
