Vishnu: “He who is All Pervading, Omnipresent, Remover of darkness”

Vishnu is the extraordinary form described in the Srimad Bhagvatam as a beautiful male with four hands, where in each hand is held a club (gada), conch shell (Shanka), Disc (Chakra) and the Lotus flower (Padma). He has a darkish blue complexion and is decorated with many spiritual gems.

The Supreme Lord Krishna expands into the Maha Vishnu – who creates the innumerable Universes, Garbodakashayi Vishnu – He enters into each Universe and then creates the planetary systems; Ksheerodakashayi Vishnu – He enters the heart of each and every being as well as each and every atom of the Universe.

Krishna explains in the Bhagavad Gita that the ultimate goal of the mystic yoga is to fix the mind on the form of Vishnu who rests in the heart. If this is done, then one can transfer to the spiritual world which is beyond the material Universe.

mattaḥ parataraṁ nānyat kiñchid asti dhanañjaya
mayi sarvam idaṁ protaṁ sūtre maṇi-gaṇā iva (Bg. 7.7)

O conqueror of wealth, there is no truth superior to Me. Everything rests upon Me, as pearls are strung on a thread.

We are all connected with each other—as the Lord resides in each of us as Paramatma. Krishna as Paramatma resides in each of us to remove the darkness in our consciousness and guide us towards the light.

Lets chant the Holy Name and recognize the Paramatma in each, stay kind, spread love and learn to move closer to the Lord.
