What Does Hari Mean?

Hari is one of the names for the Hindu god, Vishnu. From Sanskrit, it means “one who forgives all sins” or “the remover.”

Within a meditative yoga practice, Hari Om is a mantra that is believed to eliminate suffering by removing sins, improving karma, and alleviating the yogi’s poor astrological circumstances.


Yogapedia Explains Hari

Hari is also known as Krishna, Ram, Hari Krishna and Vahguru. In Hinduism, Hari is depicted with the skin color of pale blue like a dark cloud, sometimes lending him the name “The Dark One.” Hari is often portrayed holding a lotus, discus, conch and mace in his hands. Hari is found in the Hindu texts such as the Bhagavad Gita and “Mahabharata.”

According to Hindu legend, Hari was a romantic and was heard to make thousands of copies of himself in order to dance with multiple maidens alone, although he ended up falling in love with just one: the goddess, Radha.
