हरिः ॐ

This is मंगलाचरण (manglaacharan).

It seemed appropriate to use मंगलाचरण as it protects the auspiciousness of the sentiment, until the structure of this can be discovered and determined, and created and expressed for this. And then the structure can carry within itself the auspiciousness, without the need for an explicit invocation.

The first semantic level मंगलाचरण happens with the invocation to Sri Ganesha. This invocation not only qualifies as मंगलाचरण for the main page entry but also as the मंगलाचरण for the entire journey. The story underneath serves as मंगलाचरण for all that comes after. So there is मंगलाचरण within मंगलाचरण.

Please note the invocation of Sri Vishnu in the energy of नारायण (Narayana). The story is meant to serve as providing the objective of the text that is to come - to see what is, to understand the nature of illusions and differentiate between eternal and temporary. This is the quality of विवेक (Viveka) and said to be the first quality needed to be developed for the one walking the path to liberation.

Sri Ganesh is invoked here as an energy that removes hurdles from the path and as an energy that is the first guru (Adi Guru).

ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥
