vishvam – vishnur-vashatkaro-bhoota-bhavya-bhavath-prabhuhu |
va (as in warn), sha (as in sharp), t (as in top), ka (as in car), ra (as in run), ha (as in hard)
One who is known as the giver of “six” things viz birth, existence, growth, change, downfall (decay) and death.
Va means “this”. Shat means six. Kara means “one who is known as”. Every living being goes through six states – jaayate (is born), asti (exists), vardhate (grows), pariNamate (changes), apaksheeyate (decays), mriyate (dies). The lord alone is the one who gives these six to all beings.
