"My name is Vasudeva."

In the ancient legendary tales of India, Vasudeva (Devanagari वसुदेव) represents the “Universal God". In the Mahabharata, Vasudeva means "dwelling in all things." The Lord Krishna is referred to as Vasudeva in the Bhagavad-Gita, and revealed as the ultimate goal of all knowledge and possesses the six attributes of knowledge, lordship, potency, strength, virility and splendor.

The Heliodorus pillar in Vidisha bearing a sculpture of Garuda was apparently dedicated by Heliodorus, the Greek ambassador in India in 110 BC, to the god Vasudeva, in front of the temple of Vasudeva.
