Why Vishnu is called Agrani (अग्रणीः)?

Agrani  –  अग्रे नीयतेऽसौ (अग्र + नी + क्विप्) – the one who takes forward


As mentioned by Adi Shankaracharya in the Commentary of Vishnu Sahasranamam verse 37

अग्रं प्रकृष्टं पदं नयति मुमुक्षूनिति अग्रणीः

-The one who take moksha seekers to the highest level is called Agrani (अग्रणीः)

-मुमुक्षुओं को उत्तम पद पर ले जाने वाले
