PREFACE

Commentary published by Sri N. Krishnamachari in Sri Vaishnava Home Page and in the Bhakti-List at groups.yahoo.com has been  
re-formatted  by me in  frames-page format here. The texts of the individual Slokams have been added in Devanagari, Tamil and Roman scripts. 

As desired by some devotees, I have also embedded the chanting (thrice) of the individual slokas by Smt. MS in the corresponding pages which open with the chanting. 
I  presume that the embedding of the audio is OK, since this site is non-commercial, without advertisement and serves the needs of devotees.
If this is not OK, I shall promptly remove this feature on receiving an intimation to the contrary from the owners. I however hope that this contingency will not arise.

The page locate-by-name contains links arranged by slokams/nAmAs.

A note/request to Professionals:
Please do not copy/reproduce with or without modification(s) any part of this web-site for monetary receipts / commercial purposes. 
Such reproductions are immoral/illegal. 
Thanks.

Five e-books of the commentary on Sri VishNu Sahsra Naamam by Sriman KrishNamAchari were released for publication on 
May 1, 2007 - SrI Nrusimha Jayanthi day, by Sriman Oppiliappan Koil Varadachari Sadagopan, with the following remarks:

It is with a great sense of Joy, adiyEn presents  now the monumental work of the Commentaries on Sri VishNu Sahasra Naamams by Sriman Narasimhan KrishNamachary, Thiruvadi of SrimushNam Sriamth Andavan of Srirangam PeriyAsramam.

As the Chief Editor of the Sundarasimham and  Ahobilavalli e-book series, it gives me great pleasure to release the five e-books on Sri VishNu Sahsra Naamams by Sriman KrishNamAchari . He has spent the last ten years to assemble content from a dozen commentators on Sri VishNu Sahasra Naamams, which is dear to all AchArya paramparais . He has focused on Swamy  ParAsara Bhattar's and Aadhi Sankarar's commentaries for the 1000 NaamAs and Phala Sruthi slOkams. Swamy ParAsara Bhattatr's commentary known as Bhagavath GuNa DharpaNam approaches the commentary from Bhagavath GuNa Soulabhyam, whereas Aadhi Sankara approaches it from the Parathvam of VedAnthic Brahman. The conclusion that both come to following BhaishmA's  counsel is: "na tE yaanthi parAbhaavm " (The reciters of  Sri VishNu Sahasra Naamams will never meet any disgrace or dishonor) and will attain VishNu Paadham and be blessed to perform nithya Kaimkaryam).

Sriman Murali DesikAchAri and his Dharma Pathni, Srimathy Jayashree Desikachari have spent untold hours  to format these 1479 pages of text and add appropriate and eye-filling divine images of the Lord created by our artist in residence, SoubhAgyavathi ChitralEkhA, Tanjore School of painters and Sri Nedumtheru  Srinivasan Mukundan, the owner of Pbase Image  archives. I am indebted to the Desikachari Dampathis for their enthusiastic and tireless support of  the Kaimkaryam.

It is a red letter day in the annals of Sundarasimham and Ahobilavalli e-books kaimakryams.Thank you all, Team Members!

Introductory remarks by Shri Narasimhan Krishnamachari, the author of this commentary-series:

Dear Devotees:

Some time back, a few friends including Sri M. Srinivasan and me from our group joined forces to write an article giving the background behind the origin of Sri VishNu Sahasra NAmam. 
I am taking the liberty of submitting this article in two or three parts to the learned audience. The material is mostly from the book "Sri Vishnu Sahasranama with the Bhashya of Sri Parasara Bhattar, with Translation in English" by A. Srinivasa Raghavan, published by Sri Visishtadvaita Pracharnini Sabha, Madras, in1983. Any misinterpretation is completely mine. 

I seek your forgiveness if I am misrepresenting the accepted and traditional concepts;  I look forward to receiving any thoughts that  you may have in correcting me or any other additional comments. 
You may record your comments in the guest book placed above or email me at the address given below.
