After the Kurukshetra war satta Yudhishthira went to see Bhishma. Bhisma was lying in arrow bed. Lord Krishna advised Yudihisthira to seek advise from Bhishma. He did so.

The dialogue between them is narrated in Anusasayan Parva of Mahabharata. Bhishma gives the Lord’s thousand names in Vishnu Sahasranama.

There are 108 verses in Vishnusajasranama. Each and every name has got its own hidden potentials.

Learned saints have prescribed certain names for curing certain ailments. They have also prescribed certain verses for recitation to fulfill one’s desired desire.

I am giving below one portion of the above details for the benefit of all.
