Translated by P.R. Ramachander

The Vishnu Sahasranam is found in the Mahabharatha. Literally translated this means thousand names of Vishnu. This is found in the Anushasanika Parvam (chapter relating to orders or rules to the kings) of Mahabharatha.

Bheeshma Pitamaha was defeated and grievously wounded by Arjuna. But since he could choose the time of his death as per the boons received by him, he chose to die in Uttarayana and was waiting for the auspicious time. Meanwhile the war was over leading to death of all those male members in his family except the Pancha Pandavas and the unborn child of Abhimanyu. Yudishtra the eldest of the Pandavas became the King of Hasthinapura and whom else would he go for advise other than Bheeshma the great. Anushasanika Parva is in the form of questions and answers between Yudishtra and Bheeshma Pitamaha.To a question as to what is the best possible stotra, Bheeshma answers that it is the Vishnu Sahasra Nama and teaches it to Yudishtra.

Though it describes one thousand aspects and praises of the lord, it is not simple and easy to understand. Many great Acharyas lead by Sankara Bhagavat Pada, felt a need to give its meaning in crystal clear terms so that the devotee can not only sing but meditate on the aspect of the God he is praising. But this again was done in Sanskrit. With the modern civilization several translations of this stotra is available in English and in almost all major languages of India.

Though it is called Sahasra Nama in fact it contains only 901 distinct sounding names. Eight hundred and fifteen names are repeated once, Seventy-five of these names are repeated twice, nine of these names thrice and two of these names four times. The acharyas have attempted to give different meanings to the same word in different places successfully.

In the afterward to the stotra Goddess Parvathi asks Siva the cosmic god for an easy way to sing this stotra for the learned. He replies that it is sufficient that the learned one repeats the name of Rama and this is equivalent to his singing of sahasranama. It is important to note that this is easy method is prescribed to the very learned who do not have time to recite it daily and not for everybody,

Shri Vaisampayana Uvacha:

Shrutva dharmaneshena , Pavanani cha Sarvasha,
Yudishtra santhanavam Puneravabhya Bhashat, 6

Sri Vaisampayana said:

After hearing a lot,
About Dharma that carries life,
And of those methods great,
That removes sins from ones life,
For ever and to cleanse,
Yudhishtra asked again,
Bheeshma, the abode of everlasting peace.

Yudishtra Uvacha:

Kimekam Daivatham Loke, Kim Vapyegam Parayanam,
Sthuvantha Kam Kamarchanda Prapnyur Manava Shubham, 7

Ko Dharma sarva Dharmanam Paramo Matha
Kim Japan Muchyathe Jandur Janma Samsara Bhandana, 8

Yudishtra asked:

In this wide world , Oh Grandpa,
Which is that one God,
Who is the only shelter?

Who is He whom,
Beings worship and pray,
And get salvation great?

Who is He who should oft,
Be worshipped with love?

Which Dharma is so great,
There is none greater?

And which is to be oft chanted,
To get free.
From these bondage of life, cruel?

Bheeshma Uvacha:

Bheeshma Replied:

That purusha with endless devotion,
Who chants the thousand names ,
Of He who is the lord of the Universe,
Of He who is the God of Gods,
Of He who is limitless,
Would get free,
From these bondage of life, cruel

He who also worships and prays,
Daily without break,
That Purusha who does not change,
That Vishnu who does not end or begin,
That God who is the lord of all worlds,
And Him, who presides over the universe,
Would loose without fail,
All the miseries in this life.

Chanting the praises,
Worshipping and singing,
With devotion great,
Of the lotus eyed one ,
Who is partial to the Vedas,
Who is the only one , who knows the dharma,
Who increases the fame ,
Of those who live in this world,
Who is the master of the universe,
Who is the truth among all those who has life,
And who decides the life of all living,
Is the dharma that is great.

That which is the greatest light,
That which is the greatest penance,
That which is the greatest brahmam,
Is the greatest shelter that I know.

Please hear from me,
The thousand holy names,

Which wash away all sins,
Of Him who is purest of the pure,
Of That which is holiest of holies,
Of Him who is God among Gods,
Of That father who lives Without death,
Among all that lives in this world,
Of Him whom all the souls,
Were born at the start of the world,
Of Him in whom, all that lives,
Will disappear at the end of the world,
And of that the chief of all this world ,
Who bears the burden of this world..

I would teach you without fail,
Of those names with fame.
Which deal of His qualities great,
And which the sages sing,
So that beings of this wide world,
Become happy and great.

Sahasra Koti yuga dharine nama om nama ith, 28

Brahma said:

Salutations to thee oh lord,
Who runs the immeasurable time,
Of thousand crore yugas,
Who has no end,
Who has thousand names,
Who has thousand forms,
Who has thousand feet,
Who has thousand eyes,
Who has thousand heads,
Who has thousand arms,
And Who is always there.

Om Nama He who runs thousand crore yugas

Sanjaya Uvacha:

Yatra Yogiswara Krishno Yatra Partho dhanurdhara
Tatra srirvijaya bhoothirdhruva neethir murthir mam, 29

Sanjaya said:

Where Krisna, the king of Yogas,
And where the wielder of bow,
Arjuna is there,
There will exist all the good,
All the the victory,
All the fame ,
And all the justice.
In this world.

Sri Bhagawan Uvacha:

Ananyaschinatayanto  Mam ye jana parypasathe,
Thesham nityabhi yukthanam yogakshemam vahamyaha, 30

Parithrayana sadhunam  vinasaya  cha dushkritham,
Dharma samsthapanarthaya  sambhavami yuge yug, 31

Artha vishanna sidhilascha beetha, Goreshu cha vyadeeshu varthamana
Samkalpa narayana sabdha mathram  vimuktha dukho sukhino bhavanth, 32

Sri Bhagavan said:

I would take care,
Of worries and cares of Him,
Who thinks and serves me ,
Without any other Thoughts,

To take care of Dharma,
To protect those who are good,
And to destroy all who are bad.
I will be born from time to time.

If he who is worried,
If he who is sad,
If he who is broken,
If he who is afraid,
If he who is severely ill,
If he who has heard tidings bad,
Sings Narayana and Narayana,
All his cares would be taken care of.

Prayer for completion

Kayenavacha Manasendryrva budhyatmanava  prakrithai swabhawat,
Karomi yadyat sakalam parasmai narayanayethi samarpayam, 33

OM TAT SAT

I offer all that I do,
To Lord Narayana,
Whatever I do with my body,
Whatever I do with my mind,
Whatever I do with my brain,
Whatever I do with my soul,
And whatever I do with natures help

Om that is the truth.
