God Vishnu Puja - Vishnu Bhagwan Puja - Worship of Lord Vishnu

God Vishnu Puja, Vishnu Bhagwan Pooja, Worship of Lord Vishnu

The concept of Vishnu stands for that aspect of Brahman which is engaged in the work of preservation of creation.

Goddess of wealth Lakshmi rests at his feet, serving him. The person who worships Vishnu need not run after wealth as glory follows him at his heels, serving him as his dutiful mistress.

Etymologically speaking, the word ‘Vishnu’ means ‘one who pervades, one who is omnipresent.’ Vyapnothi Vishnu-Vyapakatwat Vishnu that ‘long stride’ which covers within itself the entire universe.  Vishnu is thus the transcendent as well as the immanent reality of the universe.  He is the inner cause and power by which things exist.

Another name of Vishnu happens to be Narayana. The word means ‘one who is the abode of all human beings and one who has made the heart of all human beings his abode. The commonest Puja for Vishnu’s form Narayana is Shri Satyanarayan Pooja.

The commonest form of Vishnu icon has one face, four arms holding Sankha (conch), Chakra (discus), Gada(mace), Padma(lotus) and wears a necklace with the famous gem Kausthubha dangling on the lock of hair Srivatsa, on the left chest. He is also wearing a garland, Vijayanti by name. The four arms represent the absolute power of god in all directions. The Sankha represents the five elements like earth, water etc. Chakra represents the cosmic mind, Gada the cosmic intellect and Padma points to the cosmic world. Just as the lotus is born out of water and unfolds gradually in all glory, the world is also born out of causal waters and evolves gradually in its entire splendor. Hence the lotus stands for the evolved world. The garland Vaijayanti is symbolical of subtle elements (bhuta-tanmatras). The curl of hair, Srivatsa, represents all objects of enjoyment, the products of nature. The gem Kaustubha, resting on it, stands for the enjoyer. So this world of duality consisting of the enjoyer and the enjoyed is like an ornament for lord.     Hence the meaning of this symbology is that the Lord Vishnu is the creator and master of the world.

Aspects of Vishnu commonly worshipped

Jagannatha of Puri in Orissa is an image shaped out of a log having prominent eyes. The image represents Sri Krishna with similar images representing Balarama and Subhadra.

Panduranga Vittala commonly known as Vittala is the deity of the famous Vishnu temple at Pandharpur in Maharashtra. This is the form of lord Vishnu revealed to a Brahmana, Pundali by name, because of his intense devotion to his parents.

Ranganatha, along with Varadaraja of Kanchipuram and Venkatesha of Tirupathi is the most popular aspect of Vishnu worshipped in South India. The well known temple at Sri Rangam in Tamilnadu is the very heart of Srinivasa cult. The deity is in Yogasayana (lying on serpent bed in Yoga). Similar yogasayana images are found in Sriranga of Karnataka or Tiruvananthapuram of Kerala where it is known as Padmanabha in Ananthasayana.

Venkatesha, also known as Venkateswara Srinivasa or Balaji of Tirupathi in Andhra Pradesh is perhaps the most popular of all the Hindu deities in the country. The word Vengadam of Tamil origin signifies a hill. So Venkatesha is the lord of the Hill. The image is said to be Udbhavamurthi (spontaneously manifested) and does not conform to the known Agama traditions.
