Importance of Chanting Vishnu Mantra in Your Life

What is Vishnu Mantra?

Vishnu is one of the Lords among Trimurti – Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. In Hinduism, he is known as the protector of the universe. He is also known as Sri Narayana, Hari, Keshav, etc. Believers say Vishnu himself comes on the planet to protect the earth and destroy evil whenever the world is in some danger. He incarnates, and he descends in the form of an avatar which then fights the destructive forces. He instils the faith of the people in Dharma and Karma. Lord Rama and Lord Krishna are his avatars who took birth to destroy the evil creatures Ravana and Kansa. Various ancient Hindu texts mention Lord Vishnu and describe him as a blue-coloured God who has lotus petal-shaped eyes and the most beautiful smile.

A mantra has lines in Sanskrit that have great significance. People chant them while meditating, and these help in better concentration. A mantra is supposed to have some spiritual and psychological powers.

Devotees chant the God Vishnu Mantra to evoke Lord Vishnu. As he is the world’s protector, by chanting his mantra, we bring peace and calm to a situation of chaos.
