Colonial Discourse and the Suffering of Indian American Children Book Cover.webp

In this book, we analyze the psycho-social consequences faced by Indian American children after exposure to the school textbook discourse on Hinduism and ancient India. We demonstrate that there is an intimate connection—an almost exact correspondence—between James Mill’s colonial-racist discourse (Mill was the head of the British East India Company) and the current school textbook discourse. This racist discourse, camouflaged under the cover of political correctness, produces the same psychological impacts on Indian American children that racism typically causes: shame, inferiority, embarrassment, identity confusion, assimilation, and a phenomenon akin to racelessness, where children dissociate from the traditions and culture of their ancestors.

This book is the result of four years of rigorous research and academic peer-review, reflecting our ongoing commitment at Hindupedia to challenge the representation of Hindu Dharma within academia.

Jagannatha Sahasra nama stotram

Translated by

(There was a great king called Indra Dhyumna in Orissa who was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu. One great scholar once told him about a very rare but extremely holy form of Lord Vishnu called Neela Madhava . The king send all his courtiers in search of this great form of Lord Vishnu . Excepot one minister called Vidhyapathi all of them failed Vidhyapathi with extreme difficulty located Neela Madhava being worshipped by A gentleman called Vishvavasu belonging to a tribe called SAbara. On his information the king Indra Dhyumna did reach the place where he found Neela Madhava but was disappointed as he was not able to see the god there. However he was instructed by God Nila Madhava to construct a temple on the top of the Neeladri(Blue mountain) and get a a wooden statue of him consecrated there by Lord Brahma. The God instructed the king to collect the wodden piece sent by him to carve out the idol of the god. It is believed God himself came in the form of an artist to carve the statue. He instructed that he should work alone and should not be disturbed. He said he would work inside the temple and the doors should be closed,. Unable to stifle his anxiety to see the God , the king one day opened the doors of the temple. The Statues of Krishna, Balabadra and Subadra werenot completely finished and did not have legs and arms. The God ordered the king to worship him in that form only. This is the Lord Jagannatha of Puri and this Sahasra Namam is written about him. But I could not see the one thousand names of the Lord in the Sahasra Namam. Possibly a part of it is missing and I could locate only 580 names. The English text can be viewed at

If a human being reads this prayer of one thousand names,
Or study it or hear it.

2.SAhasraanaam sathenaiva yagnena paripoojathe,
Yath punyam sarva theertheshu vedeshu cha viseshatha.
The benefit accrued is greater than doing hundreds of thousands ,
Of sacrifices and also greater than all sacred waters and reading of Vedas.

3.Thath punyam koti gunitham achiraal labhyathe nara ,
Jagannadhasya naamaani punyaani saphalaani cha.

And the man would get billion times the effect of that
And the blessed names of Jagananadha also would yield good results.

4.Vidhyarthi labhathe viudhyaam, yogarthi yogam aapnuyath,
Kanyarthi labhathe kanyaam , jayarthi labhathe jayam.

He who desires for a maid will get a maid and he who desires for victory will get victory.

5.Kamarthi labhathe Kamam, puthrarthi labhathe sutham,
Kshatriyaanaam prayogena sankrame jayadha sadaa.

He who needs fulfillment of desires would get them fulfilled, he who desires sons would get a son,
And a Kshatriya who uses it will always win in a war.

6.Vaisyaanaam sarva dharmasyaach , Sudranaam sukham yedathe,
SAdhunaam padatho nithyam jnanadha phaladha thadhaa.

A merchant would get all Dharmas and a Sudra would get pleasant life,
And a sage reading it daily would get divine wisdom because of it.

7.Na apavadham na dukham cha kadhaa cha labhathe nara ,
SArva soukhyam phalam praapya Chiram jeevi bhaveth nara.

A man will not get a bad name or suffer sorrows at any time,
And he getting all pleasures would live for a very long time.

8.Srunu rajan mahabaho mahimaanaam jagat pathe ,
Yasya smarana mathrena sarva paapai pramuchyathe.

Oh valorous king , please hear Just by thinking ,
Of the greatness of the Lord of the earth, all sins would be destroyed.

9.Jagananadham loka nadham padathe ya sadaa suchi,
Kalikalothbhavam papam thath kshanaath thasya nasyathi.

Ould immediately loose the sin of being born in the Kali age.

Ithi Sri Brahme maha purane BHeshma Yudhishtra samvaade ,
Sri Jagannadhga sahasra namam stotram sampoornam.

Thus ends the prayer of one thousand names of Jagannadha which occurs in,
RTHe discussion between Yudhishtra and Bheeshma which occurs in the great Brahma Purana.
