In the image above we see Vishwarupa, a cosmic form of Vishnu. Vishnu ( विष्णु) is the Supreme God of Vaishnavism, one of the major traditions within Hinduism.
Vishnu is depicted as the one “who has neither a beginning nor an end” and as “the great effulgence.” He is “pure consciousness.” He is depicted as having “a thousands or infinite heads, thousands of eyes and thousands of feet.” For some Vishnu is known primarily as a deity of worship and for others he is an image of the csomic Self.
According to Shankara’s commentary on the Ten Principle Upanishads, Vishnu is the form of Brahman, the supreme Self and eternal Truth. Ultimately, all things are are representations of eternal Truth. Vishwarupa is a reminder of this truth.
We cannot perceive the true nature of Brahman (the supreme Self) by form or by properties. The supreme Self is neti neti, ‘not this, not this.” Because the eternal Truth is beyond representation, we represent this Truth in images and forms of the deity, such as Vishnu or Indra. 🙏Source: https://jenniferlilla.wordpress.com/2012/03/27/vishnu/🔥Art by MW Wallpapers 🕉✨
