Here are some high level points about Adi sheSa:
1. Adi-sheSa is a manifestation of the avyakta tattva.
2. Another name of AdisehSa is ananta - that which has not yet
manifested (avyakta) is infinite.
3. When we consider the related name samkarSaNa it is manifestation
of ahamkAra tattva. samkarSana is the one who holds tattva-s
together - this should shed some light on the role and importance of
the ahamkAra tattva. (Caution: wrong / over emphasis on ahamkAra
tattva is a tested path leading into the world of asura-s.)
Chapter 3.26 and 12.11 of bhAgavatam are good references on tattva-s and their
relation to anga upAnga of mahA viSNu.
My question to learned members,
This is not about Advaita Vedanta.But something to do with Sakaara
Upaasana of Narayana.Our Acharyas give multiple scripture based
methods to do Upaasana of Ishwara.It is well known that Iswara as Lord
Narayana or Mahavishnu reclines on Adisesha in
Kshirasaagara/Vaikunta.Our Acharyas do not give particular importance
to this Form.Neverthless,they agree this splendid Rupa is the Highest
Manifestation of Saguna Brahman(Sri Chandrashekhara Bharathi
Mahasviminaha-Saint of Sringeri-Iswaranudaya Utkrishtamaana
Vibhuti-).Ofcourse,we all know HH was personally deeply devoted to
I would be extremely thankful if learned members could 'explain' the
AdiSesha Tattva from the scriptures.
