Satya Narayana Vratam Manual

Title

You can use the resources on this website to perform Satya Narayana vratam by yourself. Satya Narayana vratam is a very effective ritual for the current age. As per Skanda Purana, Lord Vishnu taught Satya Narayana vratam to Maharshi Narada when the latter asked Lord Vishnu how human beings can overcome their strife in the terrible age of Kali yuga. This ritual is supposed to be an easy solution to the problems of human beings in this age. It is appropriate for spiritual progress as well as material success. It gives results based on one's aptitude.

Satya means truth. Satya Narayana is the personification of Truth. At the highest level, the only Absolute Truth in the cosmos is the Supreme Cosmic Being. At a lower level, there are many many relative truths that arise in the pure consciousness of Supreme Cosmic Being. Like the dream objects that arise in our dreams, various beings such as the Creator (Brahma), Sustainer (Vishnu) and Destroyer (Shiva) arise in the pure consciousness of this Supreme Cosmic Being and the entire field of "duality" comes into play. There are many relative truths pertaining to and governing this field of duality. Lord Satya Narayana is the personification of all the Truths of this cosmos, starting from the Absolute Truth to the relative truths in the field of duality.
