In a recent post I wrote about Vaisnavism, and Hinduism in general in the Kali Yuga. In doing so, I considered the form of Vishnu which is prescribed for devotion in the Kali Yuga, that of Venkateswara, or Balaji.
Before that, I wrote a post about the Face of God, in which I noted that Vaisnavism, more than any form of worship, puts a face (more accurately, a multiplicity of faces) to the Faceless.
Over the next few posts (aside from a short interlude devoted to Navratri) I plan to delve into some more of the forms and avatars of Vishnu, along with some other figures associated with Vishnu.
I intend to provide my own take, the esoteric meaning that I get from my own, very personal undestanding of my path. That’s what it is, afterall. A very personal path which one walks (or rolls in my case) all the while chipping away at all that which blocks one’s vision of Oneness.
Take this as a series of mini-biographies, some of them historical, some of them celestial/mythical, or as a series of glances at the Singularity that the form of Vishnu Himself represents, but from different angles.
Jai Hari Aum!
