The Secret of Vishwaroopam
“Udayji, my son who is doing his major in science has been asking me to remove the Vishwaroopam picture from the drawing-room. He says his friends who visited my house teased him as superstitious. I am a follower of your articles and have read the book ‘Why Am I a Hindu?’. Can you help me understand the concept of Vishwaroopam scientifically and rationally so that I can convince my son? Please help me…” Sathananth Raja from Kaula Lumpur.
“What, according to you, is Vishwaroopam?” I asked Raja.
Raja said: “The 11th Chapter of the Bhagavad Gita says that Lord Krishna (Vishnu) showed His universal form (Vishwaroopam) exclusively to Arjuna.”
“Viswharoopam is also mentioned in other scriptures like Vishnudharmottara Purana, Agni Purana, Aparajita Prichcha, Devta Murti Prakarana, RoopManadana, Hayagreev Samhita, etc. In Ramayana, when Mandodari was trying to convince Ravana mentioned Vshwaroopam.”
“Oh – I didn’t know that. So many people have seen Vishnu’s Vishwaroopam?”
“Puranas say that Vishnu has several roopas (forms). Many such as Yasoda, Bhishma, Duryodhana, Karna, Utanga, and others saw similar forms of Vishnu, though not exactly Vishwaroopam. Again, Vishwaroopam need not to be in the same pattern. For instance, Arjuna perceived it as scary (Ghora) and Sanjaya perceived the same as peaceful (Shantha)!. It depends upon your state of mind…”
“But everything was Vishnu’s forms only, right? Vishnu is our supreme God.”…. From my book: “The Secret of Krishna’s Birth: Deciphering The Krishna Code”
