Monday Mantra to Vishnu for Compassion

Lord Vishnu

This mantra to Vishnu helps us develop compassion for others by reminding us that all beings are part of the same universal energy and we all contain that spark of divinity.

In Hinduism, God is not an abstract idea, separate to humans. "God", or Brahman, Om, is the universal energy to which we all belong. We are all connected by this energy. We all are this energy. And so we all are God - we are all Brahman.

But God in this sense is not the God in the Christian sense, not an entity which is all-powerful and "in charge" of humanity. To think of ourselves as God in that sense would be egotistical, and blasphemous.

Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya
