Manusmriti stressing that the Word is the origin of all Forms

Nama Article 11th February 2013

Manusmriti - 2:87


सर्वेषां तु स नामानि कर्माणि च पृथक् पृथक् |

वेदशब्देभ्य एवादौ पृथक् संस्थाश्च निर्ममे ||


Lord Manu says, the names of things and beings and the working of their acts, as differentiated from each other, were created from the revealed word (Words in Vedas are the words of God himself).


Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


The omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient Lord understands his worship and out of sheer mercy makes the 'jeeva' realize Him through the idol.


Feeling that these Forms alone will not suffice for redemption of the world He also became the Divine Names such as 'Hari!' 'Siva!' and is ever alive in these Names.


It is verily the Name of the Supreme One - the one who creates, sustains and rests it in Himself


Name and the Named are but one


God, Guru, Srimad Bhagavatam and God's Divine Name --- all are one and the same.


The Divine Name of the Lord ('Bhagavan Nãma') has the power to redeem one and all.


God's Name is superior than God's form


Thus we are able to comprehend to a certain extent that there is no difference between the Name of the Lord and the Lord. Don't we?


Each Name has a form. Each Form has a name



Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
