I think that is the primary meaning. The vishu sahasranaamaavali also
says He is yajnaH|
yagno yajnapatiryajnvaa yajnaango yajnavaahanaH|
In Geeta Krishnaa says as the essence of karmayoga - yajnaartha
karmaNo2nyatra loko2yam karma bandhanaH| tadartham karma kounteya
muktasangaH samaacara| It could mean - do the action for Vishnu
otherwise one will get bound by the action - He is pleased when one
offers whatever one does with an attitude of surrenderance - yat karoshi
