Story of Origin – Vishnu Sahastranama

Just like Arjuna, Yudhisthira – the king of dharma, was confused about the biggest dharma to follow in life. Arjun got guidance from Lord Krishna but at the end of Kurukshetra War Yudhisthira went to his Bhishma. At that time Bhishma was badly hurt and was lying on a death bed of arrows. Yudhishtra asked him 6 questions –


1. kimekam dhaivatam loke? Meaning – Who is the greatest Lord in the world?


2. kim vaapyekam parayanam? Meaning - Who is the one refuge of all?


3. stuvantam kam prapnuyuh manavah subham? Meaning - By glorifying whom, can man attain peace and prosperity?


4. kam arcanat prapnuyuh manavaah subham? Meaning – By worshipping whom can man reach auspiciousness?


5. ko dharmah sarva dharmanaam bhavatah paramo matah? Meaning - What is, in thy opinion, the greatest Dharma?


6. kim japam mucyate jantur janma samsara bandhanath? Meaning – By doing Japa of what, can creature go beyond the bonds and cycle of birth and death?


Bhishma answered all these questions by reciting one thousand names of Lord Vishnu. He also mentioned that by meditating on these names one can reach the auspicious state and get rid of Bhandan (bonds) and Karmas.
