Muslims have the "Most Excellent Names." Holy, Merciful, Compassionate, Truth, the One-such names appear in all religions, emphasizing that however we worship, the Lord is one and the same. In India, one of the most popular of these litanies is the Thousand Names of Vishnu, Vishnu is God the Preserver, the sustainer of life , worshipped by millions in his incarnations as Rama and Krishna. "Om ! I worship Lord Vishnu, who has become the universe and pervades all. Lord of past, present, and future. He is being and the essence of all beings; he is the pure and supreme Self in all.
