Summary: The English translation of the Narayaniya (Narayaneeyam), literally, “the work containing everything about Narayana”) which is a small text of 1006 verses occurring in the Shantiparva of the Mahabharata. The aim of the text is the glorification of the God Hari-Narayana, who is described as the God of gods (devadeva).
Narayana is described as the goal not only of all sacrifices and rites but also of austerities and the different philosophical systems of Samkhya, Yoga, and Pancaratra.
This translation is based on the constituted text of the critical edition of the Mahabharata.
