I have been reciting Sri Vishnu sahasranama for a few months now. There are a lot of translations and explanations to the great Sri Vishnu sahasranama but I haven't come across one that fills my heart with lot of love and happiness for the Lord. For every nama, different authors interpret differently, that is greatness of each nama.. Can you please suggest a great reading of the namas?

Adi Shankaracharya has written a commentary on the Vishnu Sahasranama. You can read it here.

Sri Baladev Vidyabhusana has written another commentary from the Achintya Bhedabheda school of Vedanta. You can read it here.


I suggest reading Acharya bhagavat paadar's bhashyam. As part of his great works, Sankaracharya wrote a bhashyam to vishnu sahasranamam. But, it is in Sanskrit.

    You may add some brief infromation about Bhashya and author you're talking about, also add link/reference to get or find book. Welcome to Hinduism StackExchange! – Pandya Jul 30 '18 at 8:06
  • There is a book containing meaning for every word in Vishnu sahasranama and the cost is around Rs.600/-. Pl purchase the book and go through. – Parthasarathy Raghavan Jul 30 '18 at 9:46

    @Pandya Acharya Bhagavadpaadar is none other than Adi Shankarachaya. The usr is talking about Vishnu sahasranama Bhashyam. There is a delete vote on this question but don't know why. It is answering the question pretty well. If there's a problem, it is about the question as it is asking opinions of users what to read. It can be opinion based. – Sarvabhouma Jul 31 '18 at 8:14
