the monumental work of the Commentaries on Sri

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
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
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

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