I'm finding Source for "VishvAdhiko Rudro Maharshi" Mantra.

विश्वाधिको रुद्रो महर्षिः

VishvAdhiko Rudro Maharshi

1 Answer 1


Taittariya Aranyaka of Krishna Yajurveda (10.12) contains this mantra:

यो देवानां प्रथमं पुरस्ताद्विश्वाधिको रुद्रो महर्षिः
हिरण्यगर्भं पश्यत जायमानꣳ स नो देवः शुभयास्मृत्या संयुनक्तु ॥ (Taittariya Aranyaka 10.12)

This mantra is also quoted in Shwetashwatara Upanishad 3.4 with slight variation:

यो देवानां प्रभवश्चोद्भवश्च विश्वाधिपो रुद्रो महर्षिः
हिरण्यगर्भं जनयामास पूर्वंस नो बुद्ध्या शुभया संयुनक्तु ॥ ४॥

He, the omniscient Rudra, the creator of the gods and the bestower of their powers, the support of the universe, He who, in the beginning, gave birth to Hiranyagarbha-may He endow us with clear intellect!

Similarly, in Bhasma Jabala Upanishad also Lord Shiva speaks:

विश्वं भूतं भुवनं चित्रं बहुधा जातं जायमानं च यत्सर्वस्य सोमोऽहमेव जनिता विश्वाधिको रुद्रो महर्षिः(Bhasma Jabala Upanishad)

I, Soma, am the creator of various worlds, past, present, and future. I, Rudra the great seer transcending all, see the Brahma and other created beings.
