Preface

Tracing the projection of everything in the universe to the supreme Brahman (Purusha, or supreme Person), the Purushasukta, a short hymn of eighteen Riks, contains a succinct of the Vedanta philosophy, which deals with the relation between man, God, and the universe. It is sung on many occasions; it is recited daily by millions wedded to the search for the supreme. This Sukta finds a place in all the Vedas, with slight variations. This shows its supreme importance.

Tradition ordains that this Sukta is to be recited daily along with the Bhagavad gita, Vishnusahasranama etc. and the Gautam, Bodhayana, and Apasthamba Smriti Texts prescribe its use in various rites and ceremonies.

The Text followed here is the one appearing in taittiriya Aranyaka, III. 12-13 An expository English version stressing the spirit of the Sukta, along with the accented original is being issued for the benefit of those who are not well versed in Sanskrit, so that they may recite it knowing the implied meaning of the text. This will improve their devotional temperament.

The well known Narayana-Sukta, also from Taittiriya Aranyaka X. 13, whose "ideas" form the basis of meditation on the supreme Person, is also included in this booklet. The rendering of the Narayana-Sukta and that of the second section of Pnrusha-sukta are reprinted from our publication, Mahanarayanopani shad.

We hope the book in this popular form will be a graeat help to the innumerable spiritual aspirants who repeat these Mantra texts regularly.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
