Viṣṇurūpin (विष्णुरूपिन्) refers to “being in in lord Viṣṇu’s forms”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.32 (“The seven celestial sages arrive”).—Accordingly, as Himavat (Himācala) said to the Seven Sages: “I am blessed. I am contented. My life is fruitful. I am the best person worthy of being seen in the three worlds. I am as pure as any of the holy centres. All this is because you, verily in lord Viṣṇu’s forms (viṣṇurūpin), have come to my abode. Perfect ones such as you, what special purpose can there be in visiting poor persons like me? Still I am your servant. Some task there may be to be entrusted to me. Mercifully may it be spoken out. May my life be fruitful”.
