In the Vishnu Sahasranama (thousand names of Vishnu), the names "Shiva" and "Rudra" are mentioned which Smarthas believe to be indicating nondifference between Vishnu and Shiva. Are there any popular names of Vishnu that are mentioned as Shiva's names in the Shiva Sahasranama (thousand names of Shiva) that can be used similarly to indicate nondifference between Vishnu and Shiva?
