For more information on Shree Vishnu Sahasranam and its benefits please visit the link given below:

As per Epic Mahabharata after the war Bheeshma Pitamah lying on the arrow bed on the war field of Kurukshetra narrated Shree Vishnu Sahasranam to Yudhisthir.

Believers claim that chanting Shree Vishnu Sahasranam Shloka and Sahasra Namavali (1000 names) on this day (parvakal) with belief and full devotion will provide them Rakshana / Raksha for 1 year (i.e. till end of Dakshinayan ) Daily chanting has much higher benefits as stated in Phala Shruthi of Shree Vishnu Sahasranam.
