Shuklaambara dharam Vishnum Shashi varnam Chaturbhujam Prasanna vadanam Dhyaayet Sarva Vighnopashantaye/ Vyasam Vashishtha naptaaram Shaktey Poutramakalmasham Paraashataatmam Vandey Shukataatam taponidhim/Vyaasaaya Vishnu  rupaaya Vyasa rupaaya Vishnavey, Namovai Brahma nidhaye Vaashishthaaya Namo namah/ Avikaaraaya Shuddhaya Nityaya Paramatmaney, Sadaika Rupa Rupaaya Vishnavey Sarva jishnavey/  Yasyassmarana maatrena Janma Samsara bandhanaat, Vimuchyatey  Namastasmai Vishnavey Prabha Vishnavey,Om Namo Vishnavey Prabha Vishnavey/

(At the outset we pray to Bhagavan Vishnu dressed up in pure white clothing with bright countenance of cool moon shine, tranquil and ever merciful demeanour and four mighty hands of assured shelter and safety. We also commend that Veda Vyasa -the great grand son of Maharshi Vasishtha, the grand son of Shakti, the illustrious son of Parashara Muni and the father of Shuka Muni- who was totally devoid of blemishes and a huge deposit of Tapasya and asceticism. Our heart-felt reverences to Vyasa who was virtuallly the alternate Form of Vishnu himself  besides being  replete with Brahma Tatwa. Bhagavan Vishnu is a Symbol of Purity without features and characteristics and is Eternal, Supreme, Unique, Glorious and Ever-Victorious; mere thought of that word Vishnu should suffice to provide respite from the ordeals of Life and to freedom. Hence the significance of the Chanting viz. Om Namo Vishnavey Prabha Vishnavey!)

Shri Vaishampaayana Uvaacha:- Shrutwva Dharmaanasheshena Pavanaani cha Sarvasha, Yudhishtaraa Shantanavam purarevabhya bhaashata/

(Maharshi Vaishampayana narrated to King Dhritarashtra that the virtuous and upright Yudhishtara enquired of Bheeshma to enlighten him of a set of genuine questions as follows:)

Yudhishtara Uvacha:-Kimekam Daivatam Lokey Kimvaapyekam Parayanam, Stuvantakam kam -archantah swaapnuyurmaanava shubham/ Kodharmassarva Dharmaanaam Bhavatah Paramo Matah,Kim Japanmuchyatey janturjanma Samsaara bandhanaat/

(Yudhishtara’s specific enquries were as follows:Who is the Over Lord Almighty of the Universe; Who is the one that could be approached for safety and refuge; Whom should one venerate to secure fulfillment of mental peace and material happiness; Who indeed should various Beings in Creation worship to; which is the Dharma and ‘Mata’or Religious conviction that would lead to auspiciousness and which is the kindof meditation and devotion that relieves human beings from the shackles of ‘Samsaara’ or Worldly Existence?)      

Shri Bheeshma Uvacha:-Jagatprabhum Deva Devamanantam Purushotttamam, Stuvannama Sahasrena Purushah Satatotthitah/ Tamevachaarchayam Nityam Bhaktyaa Purushamavyayam, Dhyaayan stuvannamaschyanschaya Yajamaanastamevacha/ Anaadi nidhanam Vishnum Sarva loka Maheswaram,Lokaadhyaksham stuvannityam Sarva Dhukhaatigobhavet/ Brahmanyam Sarva Dharmagjnam Lokaanaam keertivardhanam, Loka naatham Mahadbhutam Sarva Bhuta bhavodbhavam/ Yeshamey Sarva Dharmaanaam Dharmodhikatamo Matah, Yadbhaktyaa Pundarikaksham stavairarerchannarssadaa/ Parmamyo Mahattejah Paramam yoh Mahattapah, Paramam yomahadbrahma Paramam yah paraayanam/ Pavitraanaam Pavitram yomangalaanaam cha mangalam, Daivatam Devataanaamcha bhutaanaam yovyayah Pita/Yatassarvaani Bhutani Bhavantyaadi Yugaagamey, Yasmimcha Pralayam yaanti punareva yugakshayey/ Tasya Loka pradhaanasya Jagannaathasya bhupatey, Vishnornaama Sahasram mey srunu Paapabhayaapyaham/ Yaani Naamaani Gounaani Vikhayaataani Mahaatmanah,Rishibhi parigeetaani Vkashyaami Bhutaye/ Vishnormaamnaama Sahasraschaya Veda Vyaaso Maha Munih, Chhandonushusthataa Devo Bhagavaan Devaki sutah/ Amrutaamshodbhavo beejam Shaktirdevaki nandanah, Trisaama hridayam tasyasshantarthey viniyujyatey/ Vishnum Jishnum aha Vishnum Prabhavishnum Maheshwaram, Aneka rupa daityantam namaami Purushottamam/

( Bheeshma replied as follows: He is Jagat prahu or the  Over Lord of the Universe; Deva Devam or the Supreme of all the Devas who is always engrossed in the welfare of the Beings in totality ; He is none other than Vishnu  who is eternal and endless. One should indeed meditate, worship and  prostrate before that Purushottama for all-round auspiciousness; ‘Anaadi Nidhanam’ or He has neither beginning nor end but He is the final destination where no sorrows and bonds could reach; As such one should pray to Him to demolish all obstacles of life and secure everlasting existence of great fulfillment. He is the Unique One with immesurable glory and radiance, the topmost Sustainer and the Controller of every action and its Cause; ‘Pavitram Pavitram yo’ or He is the embodiment of Sanctity and of Sacredness; ‘Mangalaanancha Mangalam’ or He is the Unique Form of auspiciousness; ‘Daivatam Devataanaancha’ or He is Para Devata or of Paramount  Divinity; the Avyaya or Everlasting; ‘Bhutaanam Yovyayah Pitaa’ or the Pitaa or the Ostentatious Father Figure of Devas and all creatures in Srishti alike . All the Beings in Creation are destined to undergo the process of Creation-Preservation-Terminmation time and again and Yuga after Yuga; each Time there occurs a Pralaya or the Great Extermination,  there would also be revival of Srishti once again; yet, the recitation of the magnificent thousand names of that ‘Loka Pradhana’, ‘Jagannadha’, ‘Bhupati’ and Vishnu is adequate to  relieve the distress and anxiety of going through One’s Life and its travails. The memory of these illustrious names and their features of that Inimitable Power and Energy called Vishnu has all along sanctified Maha Rishis and Devotees of renown. Maha Muni Veda Vyasa had the high distinction of scripting these powerful Names of Maha Vishnu in ‘Anushtup Chhanda’ or the Prosody set in Anushtup Style targetted to Bhagavan with Amrita or nectar as the Flow of diction, the Beeja or the Seed as the Shakti of Devaki Nandana Bhagavan Shri Krishna himself; Trisaamaa or He is glorified with three kinds of Sama Veda Lyrics called Deva-Vrata-Proktaas; the recitation of the Sahasra naamaas is bound to result in exceptional  peace of mind and abundant accomplishment; Bhagavan  is Vishnu or the All-Pervasive-Jishnu or the Ever Victorious-Maha Vishnu or the Supreme Most-Prabhavishnu or the Form of Extraordinary Brilliance-Maheshwaram or  the Incomparable Energy of Maheshwara-Anaika Rupa or of Infinite Forms-Daityantakam or the Great Destroyer of Daityas or the Representation of Malevolent Forces; Purushottamam Namaami or Our sincere Salutations to Purushottama!)

(May Bhagavan Mukunda purify us as he is seated on the Ocean of Milk in the surroundings of sand that reflects the illumination of precious gems while wearing garlands of pearls transparent like crystals and adorned with Gada-Shankha-Chakra-Padma besides smiles of blissful trance showering rains of nectar from pure clouds over head on the blue skies; I salute Vishnu with admiration and deep veneration as He his physique representing the Three Worlds apppears as though Earth is His Sacred Feet, Sky His Navel, Air as His breathing, Sun and Moon as His eyes, Dishas or Directions as His ears, Heaven as His head, Fire as His Countenance and Oceans as His stomach. I salute Vishnu who contains the Universe in totality with Devas, humanity, birds, cattle, snakes, Gandharvas, Demons and so on all of whom  act and play in their own ways and means. I salute to and prostrate before Vishnu who is the Paramount Power  in all the Lokas as He is the embodiment of Peace and Tranquility resting comfortably on Sesha Naaga as Padmanabha or with a Lotus sprouted from his naabhi, Suresha or the Over Lord of Sura Ganas, Vishwaakaaram or the Divine Profile of Vishwa or the Universe, Gagana Sadrusham or like the most undefinable Skies, Neela Varnam or of Blue complexion and Shubhangam or of the most auspicious Physical Frame; Lakshmi Kantam or the family partner of Devi Lakshmi; Kamala nayanam or of the enticing eyes of Lotus; Yogi hriddhyaana gamyam or the Ultimate Goal of the heart-felt meditation of Yogis; Bhavabhayaharam or the Single Saviour of the Dread and Distress of Life’s Travails and the Unique Chief of all the Lokas; Bhagavan is also renowned for His Physique of Cloud-like Blue Complexion, His abode as the Ocean of Milk or dressed in yellow robes, Shri Vatsa mole on his Chest,  the bright Koustubha Mani on his body, Punyopetam or surrounded by devotees and Dharmaatmas and of Lotus Eyes. Bhagavan is famed as the ever-adorned with Shankha-Chakra-Kireeta-Kundala-Yellow robes, Lotus like vision, Sacred and glitttering neck laces on chest and the outstanding Koustubha all decorated on his Four Mighty Hands! Indeed to that unparalleled Bhagavan Vishnu, my sincere salutations and Prayers!)

( The above are the Thousand Glorious Names of Paramaatma Keshava the recitaion and hearing  of which should  always result in auspiciousness: The  Braahmanas would accomplish higher knowledge of Veda Vedangas, Kshatriyas victory, Vaishyas would reap abundance of wealth and all others would be blessed wih happiness and fulfillment; those in pursuit of Dharma or Virtue  would secure their objective and Persons seeking wealth, material contentment, and Authority and Status would achieve their respective aspirations too.Those who recite or read the Shasra Naama with devotion and faith especially in early mornings with concentration would certainly reach their goals without fear and hindrances, diseases, poverty, insecurity, pangs of birth-old age-death; avarice, irritability, arrogance; dissattisfaction and ignorance; on the other hand, they would be blessed with health, fame, courage, handsome-ness, brightness, peace of Life, intellect, and over-all fulillment of Life. Indeed, various Rishis, Yogis, Pitru Devatas Deva-Devis, Pancha Bhutas,Veda Shastras, Brahma Vidyas, Sankhya and so on originate from Janardana. Bhagavan Vishnu who is Singular, All-Pervading, and Eternal would protect and sustain Srishti from Krimis/Worms to all the Moving Objects and Immobiles upward to  Brahma. With all humility and modesty , Arjuna then  reiterated  his devout confidence  in  Janardana  the Lotus Eyed and Lotus navelled Devadi Deva would oblige and enthuse his Bhaktas and save them all from the miseries of Samsaara. Bhagavan confirmed that those especially of Pandavas-reciting even one name of his Sacred Saharsranama-let alone the Thousand names- should certainly be eligible for the fruits as mentioned!)

(Veda Vyasa then saluted Vaasudeva then and hailed him as the Supreme Lord of the Tri Lokas containing all the Beings while Devi Parvati who was closely following the proceedings of the Vishnu Sahasra Naamas exclaimed to Ishwara that indeed the Shravana- Pathana of Vishnu Sahasra Naama should always grant the fruits of fulfillment and Maha Deva affirmed to Parvati that just as in the previous Treta Yuga the recitation of the hallowed Rama Naama thousand times would equate that of Vishnu Sahasra Naaama. Then Brahma Deva reacted saying: My earnest prostrations to Maha Vishnu who materialises thousand Swarupas, thousand Faces, Eyes, hands and  Feet and that he should be extolled by Saharsa Naamas as he is the Magnifecent Creator of Koti Yugas. Sanjaya of the Royal Court of Dhrita Raashtra stated that as revealed in his own mind and inner consciousness, Yogishvara Krishna accompanied byArjuna  would most certainly be adorned with victory.Bhagavan’s final assurance was that there would not be any hesitation in the minds of the Public as he was the Emblem of  Safety providing protection and welfare to each one of them; His Declaration to the posterity   would be that as and when  there would be infringement of Dharma in the Yugas to follow, He would generate himself again and again to safeguard and strengthen it in the series of his Incarnations. Those who are  shaken by incidents of dismay and horror and by incurable diseases and tribulations be firmly and stoutly confirmed that mere recitation of my Sahasrra Nammas should redeem most certainly and positively!)
