Vishnu – ವಿಷ್ಣು

ಕೌಮೋದಕ್ಯರವಿಂದಶಂಖವಿದಧಚ್ಚಕ್ರಂ ಚ ವಿಷ್ಣುರ್ಮುದಾ

kaumOdakyaraviMdaSaMKavidadhacchakraM cha viShNurmudA

  Vishnu has several meanings, and few of them are:

  • Vishnu: vishvavapata, sarva gatha. – Omnipresent, all pervasive, indweller of everybody and everything.
  • All-Pervading essence of all beings, the master of—and beyond—the past, present and future, one who supports, sustains and governs the Universe and originates and develops all elements within. Vishnu governs the aspect of preservation and sustenance of the universe, so he is called ‘Preserver of the universe.’
  • The term Vishnu is dissolved as Veveshti Vyaapnoti iti Vishnuh-That which pervades everywhere is Vishnu. That which has the nature of pervasiveness is Vishnu. He is the one who pervades all and nothing ever pervades Him. ‘Eesaavaasyam Idam Sarvam’-All this is indwelt, pervaded by the Lord. This very same idea is described in the typical style of the Puranas, in the incarnation of the Lord as Vaamana, the short-boy (Vamana), who, with His three feet, measured the entire universe. Because of this act, the Lord got the name Vishnu, says Mahaabhaarata. Vishnu Purana (3-1) says: The root Vis means ‘to enter’. The entire world of things and beings is pervaded by Him and the Upanishad emphatically insists in its mantra ‘whatever that is there is the world of change’. Hence it means that He is not limited by space (Desa), time (Kaala) or substance (Vastu).
  • Vishnu involves the root viś, meaning “to settle, to enter”, or also (in the Rigveda) “to pervade”, and a suffix nu, translating to approximately “the All-Pervading One”. An early commentator on the Vedas, Yaska, in his Nirukta, defines Vishnu as ‘vishnu vishateh; one who enters everywhere’, and ‘yad vishito bhavati tad vishnurbhavati; that which is free from fetters and bondages is Vishnu.’
  • Destroyer of the fear of samsara.
  • Giver and provider of things.

 

 

Madhusudhana – ಮಧುಸೂಧನ

ಚಕ್ರಾಂಕೋ ಮಧುಸೂಧನೋ ದಧದಸೌ ಶಂಖಾಬ್ಜಕೌಮೋದಕೀಃ

chakrAMkO madhusudhanO dadhadasau shaMkhAbjakaumOdakI

  Govinda has several meanings, and few of them are:

  • “Madhu + Soodana” – He has killed Madhu named daitya.
  • “Madhu + Soodana” – One who clears all wrong knowledge (samshya, agnana, and viparitha gnana)
  • “Madhu + Soodana” – One who gives us sukha (pleasure and comfort) and removes asukha
  • One who gives the eternal sukham (Moksha), and who destroys all the material pleasures and comforts for sadhakas
  • One whose form is like honey (sweet)
  • One who provides and knowledge to control our Indhriyas (Madhu = Indhriyas).
  • One who gave us the sweetness of bhagavadgeetha
  • One who killed ahi, vrutra, and vrutrata daityas
