Who recorded Vishnu Sahasranamam?


Vishwaroopa Darshan

Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – Who recorded Vishnu Sahasranmam when Bhishmachariyar recited it? Did someone take notes in the battlefield? Our Paramathma asks and answers this question. A great anugraham for all of us to know this information.

Many Jaya Jaya Sankara to Smt. Malathi for the share. Ram Ram

Maha Periyava on who recoded Vishnu Sahasranamam

Once  way back in 1940s or 50s someone was interviewing Maha Periyavaar. That gentleman recorded the interview using a tape recorder. Periyavaa then posed a question.

“Does anyone know which is the oldest known tape recorder?”

Nobody was able to answer. Then Maha Periyavaa asked another question.

“How did Vishnu Sahasranamam comes to us?”

Someone said Bheeshma gave it to us.

All agreed. Then Maha Periyavaa posed another query .

“When all were listening to Bheeshma on the battlefield, who took notes at Kurukshetra?”

Again silence.

Maha Periyavaar explained…

When Bheeshma was glorifying Krishna with Sahasranamam Everyone was looking at him including Krishna and Vyasa. After he finished the 1000 Namas all opened their eyes. The first to react was Yudhistirar. He said, ‘Pithamaha has chanted 1000 glorious names of Vasudeva. All of us listened but none of us have noted it down. The sequence is lost’. Then all turned to Krishna and asked for His help. As usual He said, ‘I also was listening like the rest of you. What can we do?’
Then all beseeched Krishna to help them recover the precious rendition. Then Krishna said, ‘It can only be done by Sahadeva and Vyasa will write it down.’

Everyone wanted to know how Sahadeva could do it. Krishna replied, ‘Sahadeva is the only one amongst us wearing SUTHA SPATIKAM. If he prays to Shiva and does dhyanam he can convert the SPATIKA into waves of sound and Vyasa can write it down. Then, both Sahadeva and Vyasa, sat in the same place, under Bheeshma, where he had recited the Sahasranamam. Sahadeva started the dhyanam to recover the sound waves from the Spatika.

The nature of Spatika is that it will capture sounds in a calm environment which can be got back with proper dhyanam of Maheswara who is Swethambara and SPATIKA. So, the world’s earliest tape recorder is this SPATIKA which gave us the wonderful Vishnu Sahasranama.  when Maha Periyavaar explained this all were stunned… From the Spatika recording, the grantha came to us thru Vyasa.

  2. Only our Paramacharya knows & answers on the recording detail for getting Vishnu Sahasranamam to the whole Universe.
    Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara

  3. Only mahaperiyavaa can give such ‘scientific’ clarifications.
    Ram Ram.

  4. MAHA PERIYAVAL Reincarnation of SRI ADI SANKARA only could enlighten with such details.Hara HARA SANKARA JAYA JAYA SANKARA

  5. Only Mahapriyava can give such explanations. Bagavane.

  6. We have to thank first, for the person who noted this and informed public., even after his multi, after 22 years. We are seeing the site for these kind of matters only. Of course only very few can grasp, remember, note these kind of informations.

  7. This information is like a all time treasure. Till I read this article, the question never knocked me or even myself never thought of this aspect of who would have recorded Vishnu Sahasranamam. On top of it ,Spadikam has this . quality of receiving sound waves and retain with it. The beauty is it can broadcast by doing dynam of “Parameswaran.

    My thanks with folded hands to this article Smt.Malathy and Sri Sai Srinivasan.

    Hara Hara Shankara Jaya Jaya Shankara

  8. A great explanation by Msaha Peeiyava.
