rmate rmnujya nama
ukl baradhara viu ai varam catur bhujam | prasanna vadana dhyyet sarva vighnopa ntaye || 1 ||
One should meditate for the removal of all obstacles upon Vishnu who is clad in white garments, who has a lustre like the moon, who has four arms and a beneficent face.

I take refuge in Vishvaksena who always eliminates all hindrances, The commander of the elephant-faced attendants and the numerous others.
vysa vasia naptra akte pautra akalmaam | parara tmaja vande ukatta tapo nidhim || 3 ||
Vyasa is the great grandson of Vasishta and the grandson of Shakti. He is the son of Parasara and the father of Suka. I offer my obeisance to the Vyasa who is free from all defects and is a repository of austerities.
vysya viu rpya vysa-rpya viave | namo vai brahma-nidhaye vsiya namo nama || 4 ||
My repeated salutations to Vyasa who is the form of Vishnu and to Vishnu who is the form of Vyasa sage Vyasa who is a descendant of Vasistha and who is a treasure of Knowledge of Brahman.

My salutations to that Supreme Being Vishnu, by a mere though of Whose name all persons are freed from the bonds of Samsara. Salutations to the omnipotent Being Who is signified by the Pranava. r vaiampyana uvca:

Sri Vaishampayana said Having heard all the Dharmas in their entirety (without anything having been left out) and having learnt about all purificatory acts, Yudhisthira again addressed Bhishma as follows; yuddhiira uvca:
ki eka daivata loke kim v 'pyeka paryaam | stuvanta ka ka arcanta prpnuyt mnav ubham || 8 ||
Yudhisthira said: Who is the One Supreme Being which the Scriptures declare? What is the one Supreme Goal which should be sought ? By the recitation of what mantra is a person released from the bonds of repeated birth and death? Which in your opinion is the highest form of religion?
ko dharma sarva dharm bhavata paramo mata | ki japan mucyate jantur janma sasra bandhant || 9 ||
What spiritual path is that, which according to thy judgment is the foremost of all paths ? What are those mantras by reciting which a being becomes freed from the bonds of birth and death. r bhma uvca:

Bhishma said: A person who is always engaged in praising with the hymn of a Thousand Names; the Lord of the Universe, the God of gods, and the limitless Supreme Being,
