Vishnu Stotram

Mantras, Quotes, Hymns with Meaning of Sri Maha Vishnu

Sri Vishnu is part of the trinity and plays the role of the creator. He took ten incarnations to save the world and the good people from the hands of demons. There are many mantras to please Sri Maha Vishnu.

Vishnu’s powers of preservation, restoration and protection manifested in the world in a series of ten earthly incarnations called avatars. Avatars come to prevent great harm or to do good on earth. Nine are said to have already descended: three in non-human form, one in hybrid form and five in human form. The most important are Sri Rama and Sri Krishna.

The Vaishnavites, one of the largest Hindu groups, are devotees of Sri Vishnu as Ishvara, the Supreme Being, worshiped in the form of his manifestations or incarnations. Due to their ubiquitous presence, the images as a center of worship are of great importance, as is the architecture and sculpture of the temple.
