The Trinity of Shankara, Naaraayana and Vidhi (Brahma) outshine the other Gods thanks to their SAdhana of NAda, divine Omkaara, a facet of you as Brahman. They could uphold the Vedas and transcend them. They pervade the Universe. With NAdOpAsana, they acquired immense occult powers. They have the form of Mantra, Yantra and Tantras. They have an extraordinary long span of life comprising of Manus many life-spans (Manvantaras). They delight in vocal and instrumental music. They are worshipped by TyAgarAja. They are free souls not bound by anybody’s commands.
