Weekend With Wisdom: Reflections on the thousand names of Vishnu (Morning Session)

Of all the Sahasranāmas that are extant, the thousand names of Viṣṇu are the most popular – so much so that when the prefix is dropped and “Sahasranāma” is mentioned, it is the Viṣṇu Sahasranāma that comes to mind. What explains this popularity and what does the chanting of the names do to a person? Is there a logical sequence to the ‘beads’ that are strung together and what does it mean when it is said that each name is complete and a meditation in itself. This is an exploration by a seeker who stumbled onto the beauty of the Sahasranāma.
