Narayana Sukta
"Whatever all this universe is,
seen or heard of—pervading all this,
from inside and outside alike,
stands supreme the Eternal Divine Being (Narayana).[1]

The Narayana Sukta is a hymn in Yajurveda. Some commentators see it as a mystical appendix to the Purusha sukta.[2][3] Narayana, in Hinduism, is considered as thousand-headed one, thousand-eyed, and thousand-limbed and this hymn is a sung to worship Narayana, the universal Self which is identified with the Trimurti, the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.[4]
