ISKCON Bangalore organizes a special World Event “Sri Vishnu Sahasranama Akhanda Parayana” – A Global Chanting of Sri Vishnu Sahasranama stotra for 108 times for the Universal Welfare.
Sri Vishnu Sahasranama comprises of one thousand names of Lord Vishnu. This is a familiar prayer from the epic Mahabharata, chanted by the devotees of the Lord and each of the thousand holy names of Lord corresponds to His various incarnations, qualities, pastimes, etc.
Reciting the holy names of the Lord is recommended in the scriptures as the only process of spiritual practice in the Kali-yuga for relief from all miseries and liberation from the cycle of birth and death.
Lord Krishna states in the Bhagavad-gita (10.25): Of sacrifices (yajna) I am the chanting of the holy names (japa). This is the most simple and effective means of God-realization in this age of Kali.
Srila Prabhupada taught that there is no difference between the Lord’s names and the Lord Himself. Each of His names has all the spiritual powers of the Lord. Thus by chanting the holy names of the Lord, one will come in direct contact with him.
The Mahabharata assures that one who recites or hears these thousand names of Lord Vishnu with devotion every day, will attain all material perfections and finally liberation from material bondage.
