Bhagavan is called as Vishnu because He pervades this entire Universe. He is ‘Sarva Vyaapakha’.
He is also called “Vishnu” because after creating this Universe, Bhagavan has entered this Universe as antaryami, as the indweller. So, He not only pervades this Universe, but He also permeates this entire universe as an antaryami.
Bhagavan Himself says in Bhagavad Gita, “sUtre maNigaNa iva” – just as a thread that runs through all the pearls, connects them together, Bhagavan, as antaryami, connects this entire Universe. We are all connected with each other because of the presence of Bhagavan within us. Like an Indian poet put it, ‘the touch of one in the play of many’.
In Sri Madhurageetham, ‘Perumidham Adainthen Venkatava’ – our Guru Maharaj sings,
“sarva niyAmaka, sarva sAkshi, sarva antaryAmi, sarva svAmi,
sarva shakta, sarvajna, sarva sharaNya, unnai sharaN aDaindhu
perumidham aDaindhen venkaTavA.”
He says, “Sarva antaryami, Sarva Swami”.
So we are all connected by Bhagavan, who resides within all of us as antaryami.
With this wonderful thought that we are all connected by Bhagavan, who resides within all of us as antaryami, let’s offer this day to Bhagavan, by chanting Mahamantra three times:
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
