Course Overview

Course Description:

Sri Visnu Sahasranama, most delicious, focused, exclusive description of Lord’s qualities in one scripture. No tinge of Karma, jnana, yoga in this, it speaks about Lord’s mahatmya and yadatmya only. Complete nectar from the beginning till end. At least once in this lifetime we should hear this sastra to relish Lord completely.

We will learn Sri Visnu Sahasranama (1000 names of Lord), with the help of three acaryas, namely Sri Parasara Bhattar’s bhasyam called “Bhagavat Guna Dharpanam”, Srila Visvanatha Chakravathy Thakura commentary, Adi Sankaracarya and few other Srivaisnava & Madhva commentaries. Each name describes Lord’s qualities, pastimes, form, glories and lessons for us to learn.

We can relish Lord in 1000 different ways to immerse our mind in His thoughts. It’s very helpful for us to meditate on Lord’s quality, to preach and discuss His qualities with others. It is very much relevant to our Nama sankirtana movement.


Course Content:

In Sri Mahabharata, Sri Bhismadeva at his death bed glorifies Lord with complete devotion and brings out the essence of the Vedic conclusions. This sastra has 6 invocation slokas, 16 introductory slokas, 8 dhyana slokas, 108 slokas consisting of 1000 names of Lord & 32 slokas of Phalasruti with total of 170 slokas.
