Vishnu stuti or Vishnu stotram is the recitation (or chanting) of verses in praise of Lord Vishnu or Srimannarayana God.


There are basically three most popular verses that are recited daily at homes in praise of Vishnu stuti. These slokas are recited after doing worship with the 24 names of "Keshava namas".

Meanings in English (shantakaram bhujagashayanam lyrics meaning and others)

Sloka 1) 
Shanta-Karam = One who is peaceful in form; bhujaga shayanam = one who sleeps on a serpent;
Padma naabham = One having his navel like a lotus or the Lotus itself as his navel; suresham = chief or head of angels; vishwakaram = universe shaped;
Gagan sadrusham = sky resembled; Megha varnam = cloud coloured; subhaamgam = auspicious bodied;
LaxmikaanTHam = one having Goddess Laxmi as his consort; Kamal nayanam = lotus eyed;
yogi hridyaangamyam= one who is not reachable or understandable even to yogis or ascetics;
Vande = to pay respect; vishnum = to God Vishnu; Bhava Bhaya haram = who drives away fear;
sarva lokaikanaatham = the only lord of all world (sarva means 'all', loka means 'world'
eka means'one or only' and naatham means' lord').

So, the full meaning of this verse is as follows:
I offer my salutations to that Vishnu, who is of peaceful or serene appearance, one who sleeps on a serpent, one who has lotus as his navel and is the lord of Devas or angels, who is embodiment of the universe and sky shaped, whose colour is like that of clouds, whose body is auspicious, who is having Goddess Laxmi as his consort, whose eyes are like lotus and who is not understable even to sages, one who removes the fears of worldly beings and who is the only lord of all lokas or universes.

Sloka 2)
megha = cloud, shyaamam= dark colour, pita kauseyam = yellow dress, vaasam = abode or one who resides in, srivatsa = srivatsa mark or sign, aangkam = having on the chest, kaustubha = the jewel of kaustubha, udbhaasita = shining, angam = bodied, punya = holi or pure, oupetam = encircled with, pundarika = lotus petal, aayata = extension, aksham = eyed, vande = to respect or salute, sarva loka = all lokas, ekanaatham = one Lord.

So, the full meaning of the second shloka is as follows:
I offer my salutations to Vishnu, the Lord of all lords, who is cloud hued, and who is dressed in yellow silk garments, whose chest bears the mark of srivatsa emblem, whose body glows with kaustubha main jewel, who is embodied with holiness, whose eyes are wide like lotus petals.

Sloka 3)
sa = with or one who is having, sankha = the conch, chakram = round ring or wheel, kireeta = crown,
kundalam = earrings, peeta vastram = yellow golden dress, sarasi = born from lake (Lotus), ruhekshanam = resembling eyes ( ruha = resemblance, akshanam = possessed eyes), sa haara = with garland, vaksha sthal = chest, shobhi= adorned, kaustubham = kaustubh mani (jewel),
namaami = saluting, Vishnum = to Vishnu, sirasaa = with my head, chaturbhujam = four shouldered.

The full meaning of this third sloka is as follows:
I salute by bowing down my head to that four shouldered Vishnu, who holds conch (named as panchajanya) in one hand and the holy wheel (known as sudarshan chakra) in another hand, one who is adored with a beautiful crown and earrings, and dressed in yellow golden-silk dhoti, one who has lotus like eyes and is wearing garland with kaustubh mani (jewel) on his chest.

So, these are the three popular slokas recited daily during prayers for Vishnu. In the next post, I will tell you about the Lakshmi stuthi or slokas recited addressing Goddess Lakshmi.
