Nārāyaṇa Sūktam


A comprehensive course to learn the poetic and philosophical Nārāyaṇa Sūktam, a hymn from the Mahānārāyaṇa Upaniṣat which is very similar in its import to the Puruṣa Sūktam, almost as if an extension if it, a meditation on it. While the Puruṣa Sūktam speaks of the Supreme as our all-encompassing reality and unfolds the creation of the universe and its natural laws, the Nārāyaṇa Sūktam is a poetic, heartfelt, emotional and devout personal address to the same all-encompassing divine.

The Nārāyaṇa Sūktam describes the superb greatness of the Divine and how to meditate on this reality in our own hearts.
