Adhyatma Chintane – Issue #15: The Meaning of the Word “Janardhana”

Today we will learn the meaning of the word “Janardhana.”

“Na Jayathe Ardhayathi Cha Samsaram ithi janardhana,” meaning, one who is birthless (Na Jayathe) and who redeems the suffering of his Bhakthas (Ardhayathi Cha Samsaram). Here the sufferings refer to “Samsara.” Since he does both he is called “Janardhana.”
