In Hinduism

Pancaratra (worship of Nārāyaṇa)

Śrīpati (श्रीपति) refers to one of the various Vibhava manifestations according to the Īśvarasaṃhitā 24.272-276.—Accordingly, “the husband of Śrī, Lord of Gods, who is of a brilliance like the interior of the lotus is to be meditated upon. His two hands are beautified by conch and discus. The other (hands) are offered to lead the Goddess (around the fire) as if in sport. He reveals that He has no matter, as I am the support for it. It is its own self in the middle by holding which, those who are bent upon clear meditation, cross over shortly and easily the sea of guṇas (Guṇodadhi), which is hard to cross”.

These Vibhavas (eg., Śrīpati) represent the third of the five-fold manifestation of the Supreme Consciousness the Pāñcarātrins believe in. Note: Guṇodadhi refers to the sea of guṇas, guṇas here are Sattva, Rajas and Tamas, which belong to Prakṛti, the sea udadhi is made up of matter which suffers humanity.
