Bhuta-bhavanah: One who nourishes and nurtures all beings.

The Supreme Lord nourishes all the living beings of this Universe and takes care of all the Jivatmas or the created beings to ensure they grow well and they enjoy this Universe. The Lord provides all the necessities for life sustenance alongwith  enjoyment. He is present in our food, Sun, Moon etc. He supplies the eternal knowledge to the soul to free itself from this material world. He is the only true friend or atma-bandhu for each of us.

gām āviśhya cha bhūtāni dhārayāmy aham ojasā

puṣhṇāmi chauṣhadhīḥ sarvāḥ somo bhūtvā rasātmakaḥ  (BG 15.13)

Permeating the earth, I nourish all living beings with My energy. Becoming the moon, I nourish all plants with the juice of life.

Chanting of His holy names can get us more nourishment. Let us chant and ask Him to nourish our soul.
