Anadi bhurbhuvo lakshmih suviro ruchirangadah
Janano janajanmadir bhimo bhima-parakramah ..101

941. Anandi: One who has no beginning because He is the ultimate cause of all.

“One who is the first cause” –and who is himself the uncaused. The eternal, the Beginingless is Sree Narayana.

942. Bhurbhuvo: ‘Bhu’ means support. One who is the support (Bhu) of even the earth, which is known to support all things.

“The very substratum or support for the earth.” Since the earth revolves in the space in which the universe exists and revolves is the supreme, Narayana.

943. Lakshmih: He who is the bestower of all that is auspicious to the earth besides being its supporter.

“One who is wealthy, the richness or glory of the universe.” If self were not, then all would have been inert, unborn, deed. As the one life every-where, as pure existence, all the glories of this dynamic Universe are in him and from him alone. There is a reading wherein the terms 942 and 943 are coupled, in which case their combined meaning would be: “One who is the glory in the universe and in the interspace everywhere.”

944. Suviro: One who has many brilliant ways of manifestation.

“One who moves through various ways which are all divinely glorious.”  Or, One who exhibits in all his Incarnations the inimitable splendour of valour in his actions and achievements.

945. Ruchirangadah: One who has very attractive armlets.

“One who wears resplendent shoulder-caps” –a kind of ornament used by ancient Indian kings to protect their upper arms and shoulders from their enemies slashing swords.

946. Janano: One who gives brith to living beings.

“He who delivers all living creatures.” Lord Sree Narayana is the great Father of all living beings as all the universe comes from him alone. He alone was before all creation; from him alone everything has risen; in him everything exists, is nurtured and nourished by his Glory. Thus, as the very progenitor of the universe, Sree Narayana, the Self, is the only jagat-Eesvara (Lord of the universe).

947. Jana-janmadir: One who is the root cause of the origin of Jivas that come to have embodiment.

“One who is the sole Cause of birth for all living creatures in the universe.” The immediate cause is, of course, the vaasanaas of each being, but the real and ultimate cause in the self, Sree Narayana.

948. Bhimo: One who is the cause of fear.

“One whose form is terrible and frightening to the sinners.” “Oh, Glorious Sir, seeing yours wonderful but awesome from, the whole world is shuddering with fear,” cried Arjuna upon beholding the cosmic Form of the lord. He adds: “Having seen Thy Immeasurable Form … the worlds are terrified and so am I.” Again, “On seeing thee touching the sky…my heart is stricken with dread and I find no courage nor peace, O Vishnu.”

949. Bhima-parakramah: One whose power and courage in His incarnations were a cause of fear for the Asuras.

“One whose prowess is irresistible and fearful to his enemies.”
