Gita Sloka
Naasato vidyate bhaavo naabhaavo vidyate satah;
Ubhayorapi drishto’ntastwanayos tattwadarshibhih.
Chapter 2: 16

The unreal hath no being; there is no non-being of the Real; the truth about both has been seen by the knowers of the Truth (or the seers of the Essence).

COMMENTARY: What is changing must always be unreal. What is constant or permanent must always be real. The Atman or the eternal, all-pervading Self ever exists. It is the only Reality. This phenomenal world of names and forms is ever changing. Names and forms are subject to decay and death. Hence they are unreal or impermanent.

Friday January 30th: Bishma Ekadasi Pooja

6:00 - 7:30 pm - Vishnusahasranama by devotees
7:30 - 7:45 pm - Archana & Arati
7:45 - 8:00 pm - Prasad


Individuals and Groups are welcome to join 3 rounds of Sri Vishnusahasranama recitation.

Bhishma Ekadasi is an auspicious occasion, because it is the birth day of Sri Vishnu Sahasranamam. This stotram was revealed to the Pandavas by Bhishma Acharya during his last hours of his life. While Bhishma Acharya was lying on the bed of arrows, Lord Krishna requests him to help the Pandavas by sharing his divine wisdom. At this request and blessings from Lord Krishna, Bhishma Acharya reveals Sri Vishnu Sahasranama Stotra to the Pandavas on Bhishma Ekadasi day in the presence of Lord Krishna. He reiterates that reciting this holy names of Lord Krishna regularly or even listening is a divine experience that empowers one with the strength to overcome all the difficulties of life and drive away fear making one strong spiritually. This fact was endorsed by Lord Krishna.

On this auspicious occasion all devotees are cordially invited to join Sri Vishnusahasranama recitation at the temple.
