    Description

    7 Secrets Of Vishnu explores the beliefs, legends and symbolism related to the Hindu God Vishnu.

    Summary Of The Book

    The author is proficient in writing about Hindu mythology and beliefs. In this book, 7 Secrets Of Vishnu, he goes into Vaishnavite philosophy and stories of Vishnu.

    Vishnu is the Preserver of the Hindu Trinity, Brahma is the Creator, and Shiva is the Destroyer. Being the Preserver, Vishnu is the God who comes to the aid of Devas, humans and even animals when they are in desperate situations.

    It is Vishnu who takes numerous avatars or incarnations and descends into the world of humans and restores order. The most famous among his incarnations are celebrated as the Dasavatar or the Ten Avatars. Among these are Rama and Krishna.

    This book explores these avatars and other stories. The author presents Vishnu as the God who shows the importance of the material world and the need for material growth in order to fully attain spiritual wisdom.

    The book also draws a parallel between the progression of his avatar in different forms, and evolution. The first avatar was Matsya, a fish. Next he is an amphibian, Kurma, the Tortoise. Then comes the Boar, Varaha, followed by a combination of human and beast, Narasimha. This is followed by the dwarf, Vamana, and the fierce Parasurama.

    After this comes Rama, a wise and cultured man. As Krishna, he showed that it is possible to indulge in the game of life and yet be a wise person who emphasizes the thoughts behind one’s actions. As the yet to come Kalki, he demonstrates the need to let go of status quo in order to bring in a change for the better.

    Besides these, 7 Secrets Of Vishnu also explores the story of Lakshmi and her sister, Alakshmi, and that of Saraswati. It looks at Narada, the sage who is known as a troublemaker, and the reason behind this. It explains why people don’t worship Brahma the Creator. It also explores the philosophical significance of the various stories and the importance and meanings of rituals and symbols used in the worship of Vishnu.

    An Enlightener and Glass Breaker Book

    Usually authors find it very hard to explain religious stories and events in simple yet thought provoking manner no matter how many books that author has written. This book is NOT one of those. There is a consistent approach to explanation that makes it for the mind very easy to soak message and believe in what that author has written. This is a phenomenal book, at least for me, who has been searching to get a lot of answers regarding Hinduism and the meaning of certain Vishnu-viate events. ...

    Very enlightening read!!

    For all those who find mythological stories appealing, this great piece by Dr Pattanaik will be a feast for the mind. The writer has very finely ellaborated the different avataars of the cosmic administrator Mahavishnu in the simplest and easiest writing style. From Mohini the enticer to Mohan the preacher of the great Bhagwat Geeta, Vishnu has shown the world the Pravarrtti Marga as opposite to Shiva's Niwrratti Marga. Living in the material world with the goal of achieving salvation that is...

    An amazing read

    This book is for all people who have missed out listening to tales of Hindu mythology or more precisely that of Vishnu folklore during their childhood. It is also for people who know it all and still want to refresh it one more time. Each page has illustration on its left side and lucid description on the right. The book begins with the secret of Mohini describing importance of spiritual and material reality. The book then makes us understand the purpose behind each of Vishnu's avatar. The bo...

    7 Secrets of Vishnu

    This book is almost like a poem on Hinduism, more specifically on Vishnu, in prose. This book throws a different, novel perspective on our perception of Lord Vishnu and elevates him as a Super Lord, a God by every measure and mean. Each chapter is description of an Avatar of Vishnu on Earth, heavily mixed with DP's imagination, although strictly abiding to the Hindu description of each of the Avatars. A thoroughly engaging book for anyone who is spiritually inclined.

    7 Secrets of Vishnu

    This is a great book, it makes us aware of what our practices are and how Vishu is present all over India in many forms. If you are in mid career, then lots of tips for leading a well life. The concept of Lakshmi (Prosperity) is the highest form of Maya, and many others are worth visiting.
    Highly Recommended.

    worth reading if you like devdutt's style of myths retelling

    I bought this book alongwith 7 secrets of Shiva.
    Devdutt describes various aspects of 7 of the incarnations of Vishnu but not in too much depth.
    He deciphers the meanings of various symbols in hindu calendar art.
    Like most of the other devdutt's books , this book also gives you joy of reading with expanding your mind for mythological stories you read in amarchitrakatha or heard from your parents/grandparents or watched in television serials.
    This book leaves on the reader to decipher their o...
