Aditya Hrdayam Again - Part 4.1 (Vishnu)

Not open for further replies.

Brahma and Vishnu share a unique relationship in the Puranas. Brahma is said to have been born out of Vishnu's navel. Sri or Lakshmi is also said to have been born out of Vishnu's navel.

Science says Gravity and Inertia share a twin relationship. It is like that of Brahma and Vishnu. If Brahma is Gravity, then Vishnu is Inertia.

Inertia is the property of all matter. From its navel is born the Gravity. Inertia and Gravity cannot exist separately. 'Mass' as determined through inertia and as determined through Gravity are one and same.

Vedas and Puranas say Maya covers the whole Universe. They say Maya is the feminine form of Vishnu. They say it is the maya that masks us from discovering from what is behind. We are all in the Maya and what we see is Maya. It takes a great amount of intuition and intelligence to go and discover what is behind Maya. What is behind this Maya is Brahma, Vishnu and Siva.

If Brahma is Gravity, Vishnu is Inertia, then Maya is the 'Rest-Mass'. The rest-mass covers the whole Universe. The mass is manifestation of other forces like Gravity, Inertia and Energy. But they are all covered by the rest-mass and we observe only the rest-mass. If we go behind the rest-mass, we observe Gravity, Inertia and Energy as the sources that cause the Rest-mass.

But Vishnu is not just the inertia. It is the expression of the Supreme Consciousness. Sri Suktam says the 'Sign' (Lakshmi) of that Supreme consciousness is Sri. It is the Sri who manifests in all matter and beings as the Sign of that Supreme consciousness. Hence Sri is also depicted as one who springs from the navel of Hari or Vishnu.

Thus the depiction of Sri as springing from navel of Hari is in the dimensions of Consciousness. The depiction of Brahma springing from the navel of Vishnu is the dimension of gross(stula) Science. In other words Vedas and Puranas integrate Science and Consciousness.

Vishnu – The Inertia, ‘Potential (At rest)’ and ‘Kinetic (In Motion)’ in Energy

Vishnu which means ‘ever-working’ is Inertia. Inertia is ever-working motion.

Inertia is the property of Mass/Energy to resist changes in its state of motion. Thus Vishnu is both at continuous motion as well as at rest. Vishnu is potential in energy (at rest) as well as Kinetic in energy (in motion/movement).

Vishnu is the Inertia that bears and controls the movement in energy. Since Skanda is the six types of energy, Vishnu the bearer of the potential and kinetic in energy, is called ‘Skanda Dhara’.

The twelve names of Vishnu are in six pairs. Kesava-Narayana, Madhava-Govinda, Vishnu-Madhusudhana, Trivikrama-Vamana, Sridhara-Hrsikesa and Padmanabha-Damodara. These are the potential-kinetic pairs that manifest in 6 different ways.

The six potential-kinetic pairs are Nuclear Potential-Kinetic, Electromagnetic potential-kinetic, Mechanical potential-kinetic, Chemical potential-kinetic, electric potential-kinetic and Thermal potential-kinetic.

These six potential-kinetic pairs make/guide the evolution of Universe. These potentials are also present in our body. That's why our body is considered an exact representation of the Universe.

The Six Potential-Kinetic pairs - In Universe and our Body

Kesava-Narayana is the potential-kinetic pair of 'Expression'. It is the nuclear potential-kinetic pair that causes mass, which is the expression of Universe. The mass causes the gravity and hence Brahma is shown born from Narayana.

In our body the part of expression is our 'mouth'. In Anga-Vandanam, when we say 'Kesava-Narayana' we move our thumb across our mouth.

Madhava-Govinda is the potential-kinetic pair of 'Light'. It is the Electro-magnetic potential that manifests at a distance and causes evolution of matter and beings. If all the matter had been within that primordial fire at the source, evolution of intelligence would not have taken place. The matter goes farther from the source energy and yet receives its energy and wisdom through the conversion of EM potential to kinetic. Go-Vinda means on that seeks the 'Go' (wealth).

In our body it is our eyes that receive larger amount of information and knowledge through reception of light. In Anga-Vandanam when we say 'Madhava-Govinda' we move our ring finger across our eyes.

Vishnu-Madhusudana is the mechanical/motion potential-kinetic pair. This is the mechanical/motion potential-kinetic conversion that manifests everywhere visibly in the Universe.

In our body it is symbolized by the 'movement' of our breadth. In Anga-Vandanam, when we say Vishnu-Madhusudana, we move our index finger across our nose.

Trivikrama-Vamana is the set of three thermodynamic potential-kinetic pairs. There are three thermodynamic potentials that manifests in sub-atomic world, world of elements and world of biological beings. In the sub-atomic world (which is the Patala) heat energy manifests as Helmholtz free energy potential. In the world of elements/compounds (Earth) enthalpy manifests with pressure and volume. In the world of biological beings Gibbs free energy potential manifests as chemical potential.

All biological beings are manifestations of not just the Chemical potential, but also the thermal potential and enthalpy. Hence in Anga-Vandanam, when we say trivikrama-vamana we move our little finger across our head touch the ear-lobes on either side.

Sridhara-Hrsikesa is the Electric potential-kinetic pair. The potential of a point charge is Electric potential. Charge is the basis of every action in this Universe, notably even our consciousness. Hence it is the 'Sri-dhara' (holder of Sri or holder of 'Consciousness'). All our senses are perceptions are because of this Electric potential.

Vedas claim that consciousness resides in the Heart. It is possible that some ultimate consciousness in brain is controlled by the Heart, through electric signals. In Anga-Vandanam when we say Sridhara-Hrsikesa we move our middle finger across our Heart.

Padmanabha-Damodhara is the ultimate Internal energy potential-kinetic pair of thermodynamics. It is the energy to create a system. It is the energy that created this Universe with all its matter and beings.

Padma-nabha means Lotus Navel or Supreme Consciousness (Padma on which Sri resides) from which everything is born (Nabha). In Anga-Vandanam, when we say Padmanabha-Damaodhara we move our hand from our Navel (Nabhi) to Top of the Head (Padma or Lotus Chakra).
