A handy booklet meant for Chanting
These thousand names of the Lord provide us with a thousand clear arrow-marks rising from the known, indicating the unknown. Contemplation upon these can deepen our faith, broaden our devotion and improve our understanding of the all-pervading Reality, Vishnu.
Since each of them is thus an indicative definition of the unknown in terms of the known, each term here can rocket us up into the realm of the divine experience only when we have lifted our minds towards it through contemplation.
Thus the Vishnu Sahasranama is employed not only by the devotess in the sweet attitude of sporting with the Lord but they are also employed by contemplative students of philosophy as gliders to roam in the realms of inspired higher consciousness.
