Thinking about Shri Vishnu Sahasranama today, I saw more clearly that the Self has so many attributes, so many characteristics. This helped me to embrace such diversity of divine qualities within myself.  I then realized how much compassion there is in the scriptures when they share the Lord’s many names.

Thank you for this posting. For the past few weeks, I have been dedicating time to studying Shri Vishnu Sahasranama in a study group, so I am happy to learn a little bit of its history. Over the years, I have come to reflect upon the beauty and majesty of this sacred text that illustrates so richly the immense nature of the divine. Each time I recite it, I feel as if I am in a protective embrace. I feel very close to my heart. The verses inspire me to continually contemplate the infinite nature of the divine.

Studying the translation of Shri Vishnu Sahasranama has been a great practice of svadhyaya for me. I've found the descriptions of the Lord imparted by Bhishma to be so moving and beautiful. Whenever I read these poetic words of wisdom, I find vivid and inspiring pictures being painted in my consciousness.
 
Thank you, Bhishma, for your great service of imparting the thousand names of Lord Vishnu to Yudhishthira. Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya!
