Vaikuṇṭhavāsī (वैकुण्ठवासी) refers to “one who is a resident of Vaikuṇṭha” and is used to describe Viṣṇu, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.25 (“The seven celestial sages test Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as the seven Sages said (with false words) to Pārvatī: “[...] A befitting bridegroom for you is lord Viṣṇu endowed with all good qualities. He is a resident of Vaikuṇṭha [i.e., vaikuṇṭhavāsī], lord of wealth and is skilled in sports. O Pārvatī, with him we shall fix your marriage that will confer all happiness on you. Leave off this obduracy. Be happy. [...]”.
