Product Description

Satyanarayana is another name of Vishnu or Narayana (Satya + Narayana). Satyanarayana is sometimes depicted as Krishna, an avatar of Vishnu.

According to one theory, the present form of the puja is attributed to the Hindu-Muslim veneration of Satya Pir (a supposed 16th-century Sufi saint of Bengal) which originated during the time of Mughal emperor Akbar's efforts to propagate his syncretic Din-i Ilahi sect. The accompanying story (katha) initially did not contain the dialogue between Narada and Vishnu and the character of the Hindu saint was essayed by the Pir; these changes were introduced over time along with other modifications bringing the story inline with the Hindu Puranas. Satya Pir is still worshipped in some regions of Bengal while the Satyanarayan katha has become prevalent all over India
