Vishnu

Vishnu, meaning "all-pervasive" is the supreme Deity of the Vaishnavite faith. He is God as personal Lord and Creator, the Divine Personality, who periodically incarnates as a living being to reestablish dharma. Considered the embodiment of goodness and mercy, Vishnu is thought by his faithful to have lived on Earth as ten incarnations-including as a fish and boar (theorized as symbolizing evolution)-and a future incarnation, Kalkaji, is yet come. Venerating Vishnu is to also act with goodness and mercy, to forgive and forget injuries to ourselves and refrain from injuring all living beings.
