Who We Are
Padmanabham is one of several names of Lord Vishnu. The following explanation is given by Sri Adishankaracharya in his commentary on Sri Vishnu Sahasranama. सर्वजगतकारणं पद्मं नाभौ यस्य स पद्मनाभ: – The Lotus from which the entire Universe was created, grows out of the navel of Bhagavan. Hence, Bhagavan is called “Padmanabha”. … Hence he is called “Padmanabha”.
In Kashi Shakaracharya had a strange experience: When he was going to have his bath in River Ganges, an outcaste came from the opposite direction with four dogs and obstructed the way. Shankara ordered him out of his path. To his surprise, the outcaste retorted, “O, venerable Guru! You are a preacher of Advaita Vedanta and yet you make a great difference between man and man. How can this be consistent with your teaching of Advaitism? Is Advaita only a theory?” Shankara soon realized that the outcaste (Chandala) was none other than Lord Shiva, who took this form to teach him a lesson. He immediately prostrated at Lord Shiva’s feet. Right then and there, Shankara composed five Slokas, called the ‘Manisha Panchaka’. Every Sloka ends thus:
“He who learnt to look on the phenomena in the light of Advaita is my true Guru, be he a Chandala or be he a Brahmin.”
The teachings of Shankaracharya can be summed up in half a verse:“Brahma Satyam Jagan Mithya Jivo Brahmaiva Na Aparah—Brahman (the Absolute) is alone real; this world is unreal; and the Jiva or the individual soul is non-different from Brahman.”This is the quintessence of his philosophy.Adi Shankara Acharya travelled widely in India and preached his Advaita philosophy wherever he went. He taught that supreme Brahman is Nirguna (without the Gunas), Nirakara (formless), Nirvisesha (without attributes) and Akarta (non-agent). Brahman is above all needs and desires. Brahman alone is real, this world is unreal; and the Jiva is identical with Brahman.Such teachings are available non movable in the Shastras, but very less of those teachings have been taught to the society. Objectives of Padmanabham make them continue to live as long as the sun shines in everyone’s life.
Message from the Patron Founder
Padmanabham – A Society for services to Sanaatan Dharma. The word ‘Sanaatan’ which means something which is beginningless and endless and does not cease to be, that which is eternal and everlasting. It means, if we are calling someone Sanaatan Purush, It can be only our Ishwar who is before the beginning of everything and will be after everything is over. Our Ishwar is complete and the completeness comes from completeness and if completeness taken away from completeness, only completeness remains.
ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते। पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते॥
It means, Sanaatan Dharma is the natural law which is created by our Ishwar only, which is eternal and everlasting. But Today, We have changed the definition of Everything. We are living in the world where we are doing the things according to our opinions but not according to our Dharma (Law). We are calling ourself sanaatani but we are not following our Sanaatan Dharma and Sanaatan sanskriti., We are not following our Vedas, our Granthas, our Ayurveda, our Spirituality, our Literature, our Research, our tradition. Our Indian Society is adopting the western culture and due to this only, the method of our education has been changed, the concept of our medical treatment has been changed, People are not able to deal with mental health, People are facing depression, New Generations are not giving respect to their Maata – Pitaa and People are becoming rich by money but becoming poor from heart.
We are only trying to return our culture, our education, our medical, our science, our literature and many more to our Indian Society through Padmanabham which aims to work and perform on the teachings and principles of our Sanaatan Dharma.
