  1. Your blog is very informative and has lots of useful information. I am looking for the text of Sarpa Sukta from Rig Veda. Could you let me know the Mandala and Sukta # s for this Sukta?


  2. Hi Hari,

    Thanks for your response. As far as I know, Sarpa Sukta is in both Rig Veda and Yajur Veda. Perhaps, the Sukta from Krishna Yajur Veda that starts with Namo Astu Sarpebhyo is more popular. has an audio of Sarpa Sukta and the mantrocharana is of Rig Veda style. You can listen to that on
    I have been searching for the Devanagari (or Kannada) text of this Sukta and have not been able to find it so far. Perhaps, if you listen to it, you might be able to help me. Thanks, Jagadish

  3. Hi Hari, I have another question. Could you please let me know what are considered Pancha Suktas according to Madhwa Sampradaya? Are they
    Purusha Sukta, Sri Sukta, Manyu Sukta, Ambhrini Sukta, Balitta Sukta.

    I read somewhere that SaptanAgni sukta is also considered part of Pancha Suktas. Is this same as Agni Sukta? If not, could you please let me know where I can find this Sukta?

    Thanks for your time and help – Jagadish

  4. Hi Jagadish,

    Sri Bannanje Govindacharya, in his book Pancha Suktagalu has talked about SaptanAgni Sukta. You can find more information about the book from and you can find the text also in the same book (I guess – I do not have a copy of the book though)

    Since Sri Bannanje has brought out a separate book on Purusha Sukta and Sri Sukta, I guess this book which deals with 5 other suktas was named in that way. But, as far as I understand, the 5 suktas that you mention consitute Pancha Suktas for Madhvas.

    In fact, the book “RigvedIya Ahnika Manjari” brought out by the Sri Manmadhva Siddhantha Granthalaya of Udupi has the 5 suktas you mention.

    Regards, Hari

  5. Thank you very much, Harish. If you have any updates on Sarpa Sukta from Rig Veda, please let me know. Thanks, Jagadish

  6. Hello Jagadish,

    I could not manage to listen to the link you provided yet. If I figure out the mandala and sukta that the audio corresponds to, will surely update here.

    Thanks, Hari

  8. Hello Hariprasad,

    Is the vishnu sahasranama authored by Vadiraja swamy. I read somwhere that it was authored by Ramanuja himself.


  9. Hello Sridhar,

    The Vishnu Sahasranama has a pre-Mahabharata context as well (I forget the exact situation though) but the common context that we all know is that it was recited by Bhishma to Yudhishthira as he was lying on his bed of arrows at the end of the war.

    In fact, Sri Krishna was sitting besides Bhishma listening to the whole conversation between Yudhishthira and Bhishma.

    Sri Sankaracharya has written a commentary on the same where he explains the meanings of the 1000 names but I am not sure if Sri Ramanuja has done the same.

    Regards, Hari
