Vishnu Sahasranamam Benefits

Traditionally our prayers end with a phala sruti – a section on the benefits of reciting the prayer.  The Vishnu Sahasranamam is no exception.

The necessity of cleansing our body regularly to maintain hygiene and good health is recognized by everyone.  But with the busy nature of today’s world, we do not see our mind the same way as we see our body.  As a consequence, the need for keeping our minds clean is not appreciated.

Those who do not cleanse their mind on a regular basis become mentally ill over a period of time.  Prayers are a means to mental cleansing when they are chanted with sincerity and devotion.  The importance of chanting Sri Vishnu Sahasranamam is that the deity being worshiped is none other than Vasudeva. Sri Vedavyasa, who was responsible for stringing the naamas together in a poetic form, points out that it is by the power and command of Vasudeva that the Sun, the Moon, the stars, the world and the oceans are controlled.  The whole universe of the Gods, Asuras and Gandharavas is under the sway of Lord Krishna. In Bhishma’s expert judgment, chanting Vasudevas’s name with devotion and sincerity will ensure relief from sorrows and bondage.  The person who recites is not the only one who benefits, but also those who for whatever reason are unable to chant benefit by just hearing the chanting as well.
