Since he abides everywhere, He is Vasu; being conscious of all the things, He is Consciousness. Being the purifier, He is known as Pavana, the purifier. Being ever immutable, He is the Meru mountain. Being the essence of all, He is the Ocean; since He brings out the world from His stomach, He is Skanda. Having defeated adversaries, He is Bhrigu. Being adorable, He is Recitation. Being propitiated, He is Yajnya, the Sacrifice.
