Brahma created the world. Shiva along with Shakti is engaged in the eternal process of recreation and dissolution of the world. The monumental task of controlling and running the world is done by Lord Vishnu. Time and time again when the world was in peril He saved it through His various Avataras. The Bhagavatam Purana which gives the details of his various Avataras is regarded as the most important Purana. The Bhagavad Gita He taught to Arjuna during His incarnation as Krishna is undoubtedly the greatest religious discourse in the world. Goddess Laxmi, His consort, is the giver of eight types of wealth. No Vedic ceremony is complete without reciting His Purusha Suktam.
Purusha Sukta Homam : It is stated in the Suta Samhita that Lord Vishnu himself told about this homa to Sanatkumara.
“Putrapradam Aputraanam Jayadam Jayakaminaam
Bhuktidam Bhuktikamanam Mokshadam Moksha Kaminaam”
“Those who wish progeny, success in all undertakings, worldly enjoyments and mukti shall get it by performing this homam.”

After that the Vishnu Sahasranama stotra recital, which is one of the most common “cure all and get all” remedies prescribed in the scriptures, will be done.. After that homam with the prescribed materials will be performed. It will end with ghana patham. The Purusha Sookta is the Vedic Sookta of Lord Vishnu and recited in most of the homas. It is said in Purusha Sooktam that:-
Yagyena Yaguamayajantha dhevaah
Thaani Dharmaani Prathamaanyasan
