The Vishnu Sahasranama is found in the great epic MahaBharata authored bySri Veda vyasa. Through all this names we get 1000 indirect and indicativedefinitions of the unknown supreme lord in terms of the known. There areexactly 1031 names of Lord Vishnu in the ‘Sahasranama’ and we find somerepetitions also. Since this is a chant of glory repetitions are generallyaccepted.
When to chant this:
Devotees usually do this chanting daily; if this is not convenient they performthis at least on their birthdays, on eclipse days and on the day which sunmoves from one zodiac to another.
This chanting has been prescribed by sastras for warding of troubles arisingfrom the position of stars, planets, anger of rulers, incurable diseases andruthless enemies. Moreover this purifies mind there by letting one gain moreinner poise for meditation.
