PURPORT
The Laghu-bhāgavatāmṛta (5.383) states:
ata evā purāṇādau
kecin nara-sakhātmatām
mahendrānujatāṁ kecit
kecit kṣīrābdhi-śāyitām
sahasra-śīrṣatāṁ kecit
kecid vaikuṇṭha-nāthatām
brūyuḥ kṛṣṇasya munayas
tat-tad-vṛtty-anugāminaḥ
"According to the intimate relationships between Śrī Kṛṣṇa (the primeval Lord) and His devotees, the Purāṇas describe Him by various names. Sometimes He is called Nārāyaṇa; sometimes Upendra (Vāmana), the younger brother of Indra, King of heaven; and sometimes Kṣīrodakaśāyī Viṣṇu. Sometimes He is called the thousand-hooded Śeṣa Nāga, and sometimes the Lord of Vaikuṇṭha."
