1)

 

“Then the Supreme Lord Narayana desired to create living entities. From Narayana came the life airs; from Narayana came the mind and all the senses; from Narayana came the elements – ether, air, light, water and earth, which supports the universe. From Narayana came Brahma, Rudra, Indra, Prajapati. From Narayana came the twelve Adityas, the twelve Rudras, the twelve Vasus, all the Vedic metres and all the devas. Everything came from Narayana in the beginning and everything enters into Narayana at the end.

 

2)

 

Thus Narayana is the eternal being. Brahma, Shiva, Indra, time, the directions, the subdirections, up and down, inside and outside, are all pervaded by Narayana. Narayana is everything, past, present and future. Narayana is the eternal pure effulgent Lord, without a second to compare. He is Vishnu, the Supreme Lord, says the Upanishad.

 

3)

 

One should place “om” first, “namah” second and “Narayanaya” at the end. “Om” is one syllable, “namah” is two syllables and “Narayanaya” is five syllables. Together they make the eight syllable Narayana-mantra. One who knows this eight syllable Narayana-mantra with purity in his heart attains all life, offspring, wealth, health and cows, and finally attains immortality. One who knows the Narayana-mantra and Narayana attains immortality, says the Upanishad.

 

4)

 

The syllable “om” is directly the Supreme Lord full of bliss. Composed of three sounds “a”, “u” and “m”, the pranava becomes “om”. The yogi who utters the pranava many times becomes free from the bondage of repeated material birth. One who worships the Lord with this mantra will certainly go to the transcendental realm of Vaikuntha, which is a lotus full of consciousness shining effulgently. The transcendental Lord is known as the son of Devaki, as Madhusudana, as Pundarikaksha, as Vishnu and Acyuta. The one Narayana is situated in all living entities. He is the cause of all causes, the supreme Brahman.

 

5)

 

One who recites the mantra in the morning destroys the sins of the night. One who recites the mantra in the evening destroys the sins of the day. One who recites the mantra at noontime facing the sun is freed from all types of sins. That person attains the fruits of studying all the Vedas. He attains the world of Narayana”.

karmadau vighna-nashanam “He who remembers all the forms of the Lord such as Pundarikaksha, Govinda and Madhava, will attain all auspiciousness and destruction of all obstacles in all his activities.” (Vishnu Dharmottara)

“The intelligent man who first remembers the various forms of the Lord and his pastimes before performing his activities, will attain infinite auspiciousness in all that he does.” (Rudra Yamala)

 

Adhivasa

 

Adhivasa is usually performed on the night preceding the samskara proper along with the acamana, Vishnu Smaranam, Svasti Vacanam, Ghata Sthapana, etc. (see Appendix II). If this cannot be done at that time, it should be performed on the morning of the ceremony, before the Sattvika Vriddhi Shraddha. The auspicious articles used in the Adhivasa are earth, stone, paddy, durva, flowers, fruit, yoghurt, ghee, svastika, sindhura, conch, kajjal, gorocana, white mustard seeds, gold, silver, copper, lamp, mirror, fragrant oil, tumeric, cloth, thread, camara and candana. One should offer prayers while showing all the articles together, and then offer an arati.

 

@FOOTNOTE: While saying the appropriate mantra, touch each item to the ghata (see Appendix II) which has been installed and worshipped (or if the Deity is present, first touch to His lotus feet and then to the pot), then to the earth, and finally to the heads of the beneficiaries of the rite (e.g. bride and groom if the samskara is a marriage). After presenting all the items, gather them together on a tray and present them before the (the Deity), the pot and the beneficiaries.
