I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Sri        
Balasubramanian forbringing the passage of Sri Rudram where the name
Siva occurs, in response to my request for passages referencing the name

I was aware of the passage in Sri Rudram.  However, I am looking for the
context in which the name applies to Sri VishNu in the context of Sri
Vishnu SahasranAmam.  So I was looking for references to Gita, Srimad
Bhagavatam, Sri Valmiki Ramayanam, Mahabharatam, etc.  I hope I am not
maing a mistake by limiting myself to passages which describe the guNas
or attributes as they apply to Sri Vishnu in the context of Sri Vishnu
sahasranamam.  Please forgive me if I am not approaching the issue in
the correct context and spirit.  I did learn Sri Rudram, but do not have
a good vyAkhyAna for it.  I looked up at the brief footnote in Sri
Radhakrishna Sastri's SahasranAma vyAkhyAna to find out if I could
resolve the words "asubhamapi etc.", but it was not detailed enough to
answer the questions that I have which I have referred to in my

My sincere thanks again to Sri Balasubramanian for his kind note.
