Jagadīśa (जगदीश) refers to the “lord of the universe”, and is used as an epithet for Viṣṇu, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.25. Accordingly as Rāma narrated to Satī:—“[...] then the delighted Lord Śiva, favourably disposed towards his devotees, bestowed great boons on Viṣṇu and the other Devas. Lord Śiva said:—‘[...] You are the lord of the universe (Jagadīśa). You are worthy of the worship of the universe. You will be invincible in battle anywhere even against me. You will be endowed with great strength and valour. [...]’”.
