Hrishikesha (Sanskrit: हृषीकेश; IAST: Hṛṣīkēśa) is another name of Hindu God Vishnu and is the 47th name in the Vishnu Sahasranama. According to Adi Shankara's commentary on the Vishnu Sahasranama, the name has several meanings:
- The lord of the senses.
- He under whose control the senses subsist.
- He whose hair consists of the rays of the sun and the moon, which give joy to the world.
