Vishnu Sahasranama : Chanting : pArAyaNam (Audio)

At the request of Lakshmi Prasana, I have recorded a slightly different version of Vishnu Sahasranamam which she is used to. This golden state was preserved from invader by making it the colour of black stone. The golden form came to light very recently. Courtesy : Arun Ganagadharan Nair : All Rights Reserved :

As I pointed out to my sahapATin Ajay Kashyap, Krishna said that any new task will have faults, which will disappear with practice. yOgah karmasu kaus’alam. Wherever I have noticed a mistake I have repeated the s’lOka with an Aum preceding the correction.

Again, the argument I had with the Ujjain lady in Janta Mantar resurfaces in my mind. “It is not perfect, it is not complete, I am not ready” I say. “At least tell us what you have learnt, please”, she says.

If Sri Maha Vishnu can hear my imperfections and corrections every single day, why not my sweet Lakshmi Devi?

What is there that is not done by Him and unknown to Him?

Thus saying I share my efforts with you.

Read Along and Learn Text and Slow Pronounciation : the pronounciation is very good.. the translation follows one of the Vaishnava traditions.

Translations of Vishnu Sahasranamam : “Though it is called SahasraNama 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.” (Sri P.R.Ramachander)
