Sri Vishnusahasranäma : The Thousand Holy Names of Lord Vishnu

This book of Sri Vishnusahasranäma contain these Holy Names, which are the remedy for the suffering of materially conditioned existence. Sri means beautiful on account of being full of spiritual qualities; Vishnu is the Sanskrit Name of God, the omnipotent, omnipresent Creator and Master of the universe; and sahasra-näma means a thousand Names. So Sri Vishnusahasranäma means “A thousand spiritually beautiful Names of God.” Actually God is unlimited, and therefore He has an infinite number of Holy Names. These thousand Names are just the most prominent and beneficial of His Holy Names. They are so powerful that anyone who simply hears or chants them regularly, with faith, becomes relieved of all material suffering.
