Along with Lord Brahma and Shiva, Lord Vishnu is one of the most important gods in the Hindu Pantheon. Lord Vishnu is known as the preserver and guardian of men because he protects the order of dharma and the created universe. He appears on Earth in various incarnations to fight demons so the cosmic harmony on the planet remains balanced. Lord Shri Vishnu ji is the maintainer of this world. He nurtures all the living beings of this universe. There is always auspicious result of his worship and praise.

It’s been scientifically proved that chanting Vishnu Sahasranamam cures one of depression, stress,anxiety and improves memory power.

But if you can’t chant it, just saying Ram Ram would be sufficient. Chant it as much as you can.

When you are in your bed and chanting his name, Ram sits and listens . When you are sitting and chanting his name, he stands up and listens. When you stand up and chant, he dances with joy and listens to you. And when you are chanting it often, he just opens the door of Vaikuntha for you.

Shri Vaishampayan said:


After hearing a lot about Dharma that carries life and of those great methods that remove the sins from one’s life and to cleanse forever ,Yudhishthir asked Bhishma again the abode of everlasting peace.


Yudhisthir uvacha —


Kimekam daivatam loke kim

vaapyekam paraayanam |

Stuvantah kam kamar-chantah

praap-nuyur maanavah shubham || 8 ||


Yudhishthira asked:


Who is the one (Supreme) Deity? What is the highest goal of life? By praising which Deity’s auspicious qualities will human beings attain prosperity in this world as well as bliss in the next? By meditating on which Deity will human beings get salvation? By reciting which Mantra will man be released from the bondage of the cycle of birth and death? Of the three Means ( Dharma) referred to above ( i.e, Recitation, Praise and Meditation), Which is the best means for attaining the grace of the Supreme Deity based on your vast experience and knowledge?


In summary Yudhishthir asks ,”Given my despair and sorrowful state of mind, I want to expend the least effort and get the most benefit out of it. I want relief from my despair. please tell me the means for this.





Yudhishthir asked 


Ko dharmah sarv-dharmaa-

naam bhavtah parmo mata |

Kim japan-muchyate jantur-

janm-sansaar-bandhanaat || 9 ||


Yudhishthir asked 

Yudhishthira now wants to know, which dharma, in Bhishma’s opinion, is the highest of them all.


Bhishma uvacha


Jagat-prabhum dev-devam-

anantam purushottamam |

Stuvan nama-sahasren

purushah sat-totthitah || 10 ||


Bhishma replied:


A person will be free from all the sorrows in this world by Reciting with undiluted devotion “ The Sahasranama i.e The Thousand Names”  of the Eternal Person, That All-Pervading Being who is the Master of the Worlds, who is Supreme over all Devas and who is the Supreme Spirit.

Worshiping Him always with devotion, Meditating upon Him, Glorifying Him, Saluting Him by prostrating before Him, and Adoring Him. Of all the Dharmas or practices, The Dharma Or Practice involving service done to the Lotus-Eyed Lord Krishna, without any desire for benefit, through Worship (Archana) and Hymnal Praise ( Stava), is the best Dharma. Worshipping and praising God does not require any effort other than the willingness to chant. This is the best way to get relief from all the Miseries, Sorrows, and Sins”.

Note: Praising is easy which involves only Speech and does not involve any Material Sacrifice or Bodily Exertion. It is open to all and does not need help from or dependence on others. Other kinds of Worship might require Money or other resources to perform the Worship or the need to impose on other people for their involvement (e.g. A priest to give instructions on the Method of Worship etc.). For the purpose of Chanting the name of God. There is also no constraint on the Ahsrama (i.e., Brahmacharya, Grihasta, etc.) to which a person belongs unlike e.g. the constraints that the Vedas place in performing the Ceremonial Rites with Sacrificial Fire. There is also no requirement regarding Time, Place, Status Of Purity etc. The key element of the Act of Chanting as a means to attain The Lord’s Grace is the Sincerity and Purity of Mind and there is no other constraint or consideration.

Contemplation on Personal form of the Vishnu: In the milky ocean, which has a bed of sparkling pure emeralds, the God who can give salvation to his devotees is seated on a throne decorated with strings of pearls, covered by an umbrella of clouds which shower nectarine dews as though they are flower petals, His ornamented body glittering with pearls and precious gems and holding the conch in his hand. I pray to this God, to make me pure.

Contemplation of the Cosmic form of the Lord: I bow to Lord Vishnu who has the three worlds as His body. The earth is His feet, and the sky His navel. Wind is His breath, and the sun and the moon are His eyes. Directions are His ears, and the Heaven is His Head. Fire is His face and the ocean His abdomen. In Him is situated the Universe with the diverse kinds of gods, men, birds, cattle, serpants, Gandharvas and Daityas (Asuras) – all sporting in a charming way.

I bow my head to Vishnu, carrying a conch and a wheel, wearing a crown and ear-rings, wrapped in a yellow garment, with eyes like lotus, with a garland and the Kaustubh gem lying on his chest and possessing four hands.  The next meaning must be from some other shloka. It is unrelated! I seek refuge in dark-haired, long-eyed, jewel-bedecked, four-armed, moon-faced Krishna, adorned by the Srivats mark on his chest, accompanied by Rukmini and SatyabhAma, seated on the golden throne under the shade of the celestial Parijata Tree.
