About Vishnu Sahasranam
Vishnu Sahasranam is in the Mahabharatha. Translated literally, it means a thousand names of Vishnu. This is found in the Mahabharatha Anushasanika Parvam (chapter on orders or rules to kings).
Bheeshma Pitamaha was defeated and seriously injured by Arjuna. But since he could choose the moment of his death according to the benefits he had received, he chose to die in Uttarayana and waited for the right moment. In the meantime, the war was over, killing all the male members of his family except the Pancha Pandavas and the unborn child of Abhimanyu. Yudishtra, the eldest of the Pandavas, became the king of Hasthinapura and to whom would he turn except Bheeshma the Great. Anushasanika Parva is in the form of questions and answers between Yudishtra and Bheeshma Pitamaha. To ask what is the best possible stotra, Bheeshma answers that it is the Vishnu Sahasra Nama and teaches it in Yudishtra.
Although it describes a thousand aspects and praises of the Lord, it is not simple and easy to understand. Many great Acharyas led by Sankara Bhagavat Pada felt the need to give meaning in very clear terms so that the devotee could not only sing but also meditate on the aspect of the God he praises. But this has been done again in Sanskrit. With modern civilization, several translations of this stotra are available in English and in almost all the major languages of India.
Although it is called Sahasra Nama, in fact, it contains only 901 distinctly-sounding names. Eight hundred and fifteen names are repeated once, seventy-five of these names are repeated twice, nine of these names three times, and two of these names four times. The acharyas have tried to give different meanings to the same word in different places.
In the rest of the stotra, the goddess Parvathi asks Siva, the cosmic god, a simple way to sing this stotra for scholars. He replies that it is enough for the scholar to repeat the name of Rama and that is equivalent to singing sahasranama. It is important to note that this easy method is prescribed to very learned people who do not have the time to recite it daily and not for everyone.
