Sahasranama means 1000 names. The nameless has 1000 names. The number 1000 is only figurative because Lord has infinite names. Thousand is symbolic of myriad or numerous.

Lord Vishnu is “Visveswara” – the one who reigns over the globe, the one who is supreme. In the Bhagvad Gita, Lord Krishna says, “I am the beginning, the middle and the end”. If we start visualizing that everything that is good in this world has some element of divinity in it, then we are progressing on the path towards salvation. Whenever we chant “Om”, it is a reverence to Lord Krishna as well. Lord says,
“Anything that is glorious, brilliant or powerful is a manifestation of my effulgence.”
God’s glory is great. He is endowed with abundance of virtue, knowledge and dispassion. By worshipping God, we are rid of our obsessions with the world – we are experiencing a form of mukti or freedom.Once the river merges with the sea, its identity is lost. In the same way, once we become one with the Almighty, we attain the supreme self. By thinking of the divine forms and uttering the sacred name of the Lord, our senses- faculties get sublimated to a higher level, We start on the road, begin our journey to spirituality.

Puranas say that the name “Hari” has a tremendous power to remove sin. Nama japa can be performed at any time. Divine name is the supreme truth. Never disrespect the preceptor or the guru.
In the Gita, the Lord says “constantly praising me and striving to reach me with firm resolve and offering obeisance to me, brings me closer to my devotees.” If you have any problem that is causing you heart burn or intrigue, surrender yourself completely at the Lotus feet of Lord Vishnu.
Legend of Vishnu Sahasranam:
On the war zone of Kurukshetra, Bhisma - grand dad of Kauravas and Pandavas was lying on his deathbed. With Bhishma's demise, a time of incredible intelligence and learning was going to reach an end. Lord Krishna prompted Yudhistira to look for Bhishma's direction on all parts of life. The dialog, which was seen by Sage Vyasa and Lord Krishna too, reflects path of Bhishma's life. Amid the dialog, because of Yudhisthir's inquiries, for example, who is a definitive Supreme reality of the creation; by revering whom a man accomplishes salvation; and what is the least demanding path by which humanity can get everlasting satisfaction, endless peace and get to be free from hopelessness and distress, Bhishma said thousand names of Lord Vishnu
