Viṣṇu Sahasranama Stotram Lyrics and Meaning:
śuklāṃ baradharaṃ viṣṇuṃ śaśi varṇam catur bhujam |
prasanna vadanaṃ dhyāyet sarva vighnopa śāntaye || 1 ||
One should meditate for the removal of all obstacles upon Vishnu who is clad in white garments,
who has a lustre like the moon, who has four arms and a beneficent face.
yasya dviradha vaktrādya pariṣādya paraśatam |
vighnaṃ nighnanti satataṃ viśvaksenaṃ tamāśraye || 2 ||
I take refuge in Vishvaksena who always eliminates all hindrances,
The commander of the elephant-faced attendants and the numerous others.
vyāsaṃ vasiṣṭa naptāraṃ śakteḥ pautraṃ akalmaṣam |
parāśara ātmajaṃ vande śukatātaṃ tapo nidhim || 3 ||
Vyasa is the great grandson of Vasishta and the grandson of Shakti. He is the son of Parasara
and the father of Suka. I offer my obeisance to the Vyasa who is free from all defects and is a
repository of austerities.
vyāsāya viṣṇu rūpāya vyāsa-rūpāya viṣṇave |
namo vai brahma-nidhaye vāsiṣṭāya namo namaḥ || 4 ||
My repeated salutations to Vyasa who is the form of Vishnu and to Vishnu who is the form of
Vyasa — sage Vyasa who is a descendant of Vasistha and who is a treasure of Knowledge of
avikāraya śudhāya nityāya paramātmane |
sadaika rūpa rūpāya viṣṇave sarva jiṣṇave || 5 ||
I offer my obeisance to Vishnu, Who is devoid of all mutations, Who is by nature pure and
eternal, Who is endowed with a form which is uniform at all times and Who is the victor over all.
yasya smaraṇa mātreṇa janma saṃsāra bandhanāt |
vimucyate namas tasmai viṣṇave prabha viṣṇave || 6 ||
My salutations to that Supreme Being Vishnu, by a mere though of Whose name all persons are
freed from the bonds of Samsara. Salutations to the omnipotent Being Who is signified by the
śrī vaiśampāyana uvāca:
śrutvā dharmān aśeṣeṇa pāvanāni ca sarvaśaḥ |
yuddhiṣṭiraḥ śāntanavaṃ punar-eva abhyabhāṣita || 7 ||
Sri Vaishampayana said — Having heard all the Dharmas in their entirety (without anything
having been left out) and having learnt about all purificatory acts, Yudhisthira again addressed
Bhishma as follows;
kiṁ ekaṃ daivataṃ loke kim vā ‘pyekaṃ parāyaṇam |
stuvantaḥ kaṃ kaṃ arcantaḥ prāpnuyāt mānavāḥ śubham || 8 ||
Yudhisthira said:— Who is the One Supreme Being which the Scriptures declare? What is the
one Supreme Goal which should be sought ? By the recitation of what mantra is a person
released from the bonds of repeated birth and death? Which in your opinion is the highest form
ko dharmaḥ sarva dharmāṇāṃ bhavataḥ paramo mataḥ |
kiṃ japan mucyate jantur janma saṃsāra bandhanāt || 9 ||
What spiritual path is that, which according to thy judgment is the foremost of all paths ? What
are those mantras by reciting which a being becomes freed from the bonds of birth and death.
śrī bhīṣma uvāca:
jagat prabhuṃ deva-devam anantaṃ puruṣottamam |
stuvan nāma sahasreṇa puruṣaḥ satatotthitaḥ || 10 ||
Bhishma said:— A person who is always engaged in praising with the hymn of a Thousand
Names; the Lord of the Universe, the God of gods, and the limitless Supreme Being,
tam eva cārcayan nityaṃ bhaktyā puruṣam avyayam |
dhyāyan stuvan namasyaṃśca yajamānas tam eva ca || 11 ||
And engaged in worshipping Him with devotion, meditating upon Him, glorifying Him, offering
obeisance and adoring Him,
anādi nidhanaṃ viṣṇuṃ sarva-loka-maheś
lokādhyakṣaṃ stuvan nityaṃ sarva duḥkhātigo bhavet || 12 ||
one who is ever engaged in praising the Lord who is without beginning and end, the Allpervading-One,
the Ruler of the Universe, the Supervisor of the worlds, the One Who is to be
known from the Vedas, Who is Himself the Knower of all Dharmas, the One Who is constantly
engaged in the Universal Welfare, Lord of the Universe, and the Cause of all beings — such a
devotee transcends over all the sorrows of this material world.
brahmaṇyaṃ sarva dharmajñaṃ lokānāṃ kīrti-vardhanam |
lokanāthaṃ mahadbhūtaṃ sarvabhūta-bhavodbhavam || 13 ||
Verily He is champion of the devotees, conversant with all duties and injunctions, the enhancer
of fame and achievement of all people, the master of all the universe, exceedingly wonderful, and
the cause of the origination of all beings.
eṣa me sarva dharmāṇāṃ dharmo ‘dhikatamo mataḥ |
yad bhaktyā puṇḍarīkākṣaṃ stavair arcen naras sadā || 14 ||
This worship of the Supreme Lotus-eyed Lord at all times by a person endowed with devotion is
regarded by me as the greatest of all religious practices
paramaṃ yo mahat tejaḥ paramaṃ yo mahat tapaḥ |
paramaṃ yo mahad brahma paramaṃ yaḥ parāyaṇam || 15 ||
He Who is the Supreme Effulgence; Who is the Supreme Director; Who is the Supreme
Brahman; and Who is the Supreme, Highest and Ultimate Goal;
pavitrāṇāṃ pavitraṃ yo maṅgalānāṃ ca maṅgalam |
daivataṃ devatānāṃ ca bhūtānāṃ yo ‘vyayaḥ pitā || 16 ||
He Who is the purest of the pure and the most auspicious amongst the auspicious, The God of
gods and the indestructible Progenitor of all beings.
yataḥ sarvāṇi bhūtāni bhavantyādi yugāgame |
yasmiṃśca pralayaṃ yānti punar eva yugakṣaye || 17 ||
From Whom all beings originate in the beginning of the first Yuga and in Whom they merge
again at the end of the Yuga.

viṣṇor nāma sahasraṃ me śṛṇu pāpa bhayāvahaṃ || 18 ||
O King! Hear from me the Thousand Names which remove sins and drive away fear. The
appellations of that Vishnu, Lord of the Universe and Ruler of the World.

ṛṣibhiḥ parigitāni tāni vakṣyāmi bhūtaye || 19 ||
For the good of the world, I shall tell you the holy names of the Supreme Being, which are
indicative of His attributes and glory, well known and recited by the Rishis.
ṛṣir nāmnāṃ sahasrasya veda vyāso mahāmuniḥ |
chando ‘nuṣṭup tathā devo bhagavān devakī-sutaḥ || 20 ||
The Great Vedavyasa is the Seer of these Thousand Names of Vishnu, the metre is the anushtup,
the Presiding Deity is Lord Krishna the son of Devaki.
amṛtāṃ śūdbhavo bījaṃ śaktir devakī-nandanaḥ |
trisāmā hṛdayaṃ tasya śāntyārthe viniyujyate || 21 ||
The seed is He-who-was-born-in-the-lunar-race; its power is The Name, The-son-of-Devaki. The
heart is the One-who-is-lauded-by-the-three-Sama-hymns, The purpose of its use is the
attainment of peace.
viṣṇuṃ jiṣṇuṃ mahā-viṣṇuṃ prabha-viṣṇuṃ maheśvaram |
aneka-rūpa daityāntaṃ namāmi puruṣottamam || 22 ||
I pay my obeisance to Vishnu, the Victorious, the All-pervading One, the Mighty, the Lord of all,
the enemy of the demons of many forms and the Best of Persons.
