Think of him as the all pervader Vishnu, when taking medicines.
As Janardhana, the destroyer of evil, when taking food.
As the lotus bellied, Padmanabha, when in bed,
And as Prajaapathi, the chief of all people, in marriage.
Think of the wielder of the Sudarshana, Chakradhara, in war,
As the conquerer of the three worlds, Trivikrama, while on travel,
As the dweller of all creations, Narayana, at the time of death,
And as the bearer of Lakshmi, Sridhara, when meeting a loved one.
Meditate on the protector of the cows, Govinda, in a nightmare,
On the destroyer of Madhu, Madhusoodhana, in difficulties,
On the man lion form of Narasimha, in a forest,
And on the water dweller, Jalasayina, in the midst of fires.
Call on the Sacred Boar, Varaaha, in turbid waters,
The beloved of the Raghu clan, Raama, in the heights of mountains,
On the short dwarf Vaamana, while on the move,
And summon the Sweet lord of everything, Madhava, for every thinkable activity.
He who recites these sixteen sacred names of Vishnu,
Every morning at the hour of dawn, will get absolved from all his sins,
And reach Vaikuntha when he sheds his mortal coils.
