The thousand names of Vishnu reiterate a single message: the Lord is everything, everywhere. His names evoke the qualities that elevate our lives: forgiveness, beauty, tenderness, compassion and love.
Every religion in the world worships their God with a different name. Words like ‘Holy, Merciful, Compassionate, Truth, and the One’ appear in all these religions, emphasizing that however we worship, the Lord is one and the same.
In India, one of the most popular litanies is the thousand names of Vishnu. He is worshipped by millions in his incarnations as Rama and Krishna. Eknath Easwaran comments on a fraction of these names and what each one means in our daily lives. This is a book for daily inspiration, full of personal reminders of what it means to see God in the faces and events of everyday life.
