How do Shaivas and Shaktas interpret the Vishnu Gayatri mantra, which is from the Narayana Suktam of the Yajur Veda:

"Narayanaya vidmahe vasudevaya dhimahi | tanno Vishnuh prachodayat"

which identifies Narayana as Vishnu?

    Yes, I knew that but some people who read questions here on Hi SE don't know that thing. For their sake you may want to mention that thing in your Q. – brahma jijnasa Feb 7 '19 at 1:03
  • @brahmajijnasa I added it now. – Ikshvaku Feb 7 '19 at 1:03

    Why would Shaivas, Shaktas interpret this mantra? What is their problem if Vishnu is Narayana? @Ikshvaku – Rickross Feb 7 '19 at 5:03
