Stotrams & Sukthams

Vaachaspathi Veda Vidya seeks to provide you with a deeper understanding of India, Indians and all things Indic.

Stotrams & Sukthams are Sanskrit words, for a hymn addressed to Divinity. It can be a prayer, a description, or a conversation.One type of stotra is based on chanting a litany of names for a deity. A category of stotra of that type is the Sahasranama, which is a litany of a thousand names for deity. Sahasranama means "1000 names"; Sahasra means 1000 and nama means names. According to Hinduism, the names of God are valuable tools for devotion.
