Vishnusahasranama & Brahmasutras

|| श्री लक्ष्मीहयग्रीवाय नमः ||
|| श्रीमदानन्दतीर्थ गुरुभ्यो नमः ||
|| श्री राघवेन्द्रतीर्थ गुरुभ्यो नमः ||
|| श्री वादिराजतीर्थ गुरुभ्यो नमः ||
|| श्री गुरुभ्यो नमः | हरिः ॐ ||


The purpose of this page is to map the names of Paramatma in the Vishnusahasranama to the Brahma Sutras.

Sri Madhwacharya has declared in his Mahabharata Tatparya Nirnaya that the Vishnusahasranama is the very essence of Mahabharata and consequently contains the essence of entire shastra.

This naturally means that the meaning expounded by the Brahma Sutras is delivered by the Vishnusahasranama as well. The Sutras help us understand shastra. The Vishnusahasranama is the essence of shastra. Therefore, it must be possible to map the message of the Sutras to the names of Paramatma in the Vishnusahasranama.

This page is an attempt to do the same.

Quite obviously, I will be relying upon the Bhashya, Tika and Tippanis from the sampradaya of Sri Madhwacharya while attempting this exercise.

Disclaimer: This page will be a work-in-progress for a very long time.
