Bheeshma Ekadasi is the birthday of Sri Vishnu Sahasranamam
During the Mahabharata War, the great Sri Bheeshmacharya, revealed the sacred Sri Vishnu Sahasranama Sthothram. The sthothram contains one thousand names of Lord Srimannarayana, with each name being very powerful and highly beneficial in obtaining the grace of the Lord. The names in this sthothram originated as a result of severe penances performed by sages in ancient times. The benefits of chanting this sthothram gets multiplied manifold when chanted collectively.
His Holiness Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji initiated “Sri Vishnu Sahasranama Virat Parayanam”, the mass chanting of Sri Vishnu Sahasranama Sthothram, on the auspicious occasion of Bheeshma Ekadasi. Since early 1990s, several hundred thousand devotees gather at various locations, to chant Sri Vishnu Sahasranama Sthothram and seek blessings of Lord Srimannarayana.
