With the blessings and guidance from HH Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji, for the benefit of all , JET Australia Foundation, Perth Chapter planned a divine colossal chanting event called Sarva:rishta Sa:nthi Nakshathra Graha Anuku:latha: Siddhiprada, aho ratra, astotthara shatavara, akhanda, virat sri vishnu sahasranama parayanam’ known as ‘Shanti Sahasram’.
1. What is this “Shanti Sahasram”event?
Chanting Sri Vishnu Sahasranam Stotram for 108 times representing each Nakshatra, to pacify the effects of any unknown planetary dispositions, is Shanti Sahasram.
2. How Sri Vishnu Sahasranama Stotram and Nakshatras are related?
As per our Vedic tradition, every person born will have a specific birth star (‘Janma Nakshatra)’, no matter whether he/she knows it or not. Each ‘nakshatra’ is controlled by a devata, adhi devata and pratyadhi devata. Showing our gratitude to those devatas in a proper Vedic procedure with faith and devotion brings us good results. There are 27 stars (Nakshatras). Each nakshatra will have four ‘padas’ (quarters). These nakshatras of 27 x 4 = 108 padas are divided into 12 Rashis (Zodiac signs). Based on these zodiac signs, the results of planetary positions will be determined. Sri Vishnu Sahasranama Stotram is a powerful mantra, given to the world by Sri Bhishmacharya, after the Mahabharata war. This is a divine garland of 1000 names of almighty having 108 slokas representing each quarter of every nakshatra. The phala shruti of this stotram reveals that, whoever chants this Sahasranama with faith and devotion, will get rid of all the difficulties caused through graha and nakshatra doshas. Praising the almighty through Sri Vishnu Sahasranamam and honouring each nakshatra through Vedic mantras is one of ‘Shanti Sahasram’ the procedures given to us by our acharyas. This Vedic procedure not only makes to get rid of any unwanted affiliations of planets and stars, but also makes our life filled with joy, peace and prosperity. Let us create a positive energy in our surroundings through this mega chanting event.
