Who Would Have Recorded Vishnu Sahasranama?

Who Would Have Recorded Vishnu Sahasranama?

In the battlefield of Kurukshetra, Bhishmacharya gave the thousand names of Lord Vishnu.
This became famous as Vishnu Sahasranama.
But as Bhismacharya went on saying these names, all were just listening with eyes closed.
Nobody was writing them down or even memorizing them.
After they opened their eyes, Yudhishtira was the first one to realize this.
He asked: has anyone noted this down?
No.
Yudhishtira asked Krishna: can you please recollect?
No.
Even I was totally absorbed in it.
But Krishna gave a solution.
Sahadeva was wearing a sphatika (crystal).
Sphatika absorbs and stores sound waves around it.
It would have stored the Sahasranama also.
Lord Krishna told Sahadeva to meditate upon Lord Shiva.
When he did that, he could hear the names ‘recorded’ in the sphatika being played back.
Then they were noted down.
The same were made eternal by Sage Vyasa in his Mahabharata.

When should we read Garuda Purana?

Garuda Purana focuses on path of the soul after death and the significance of death rites performed to aid that soul through each step. It should be read in connection with death rites.

Who was Karna in his previous birth?

Karna was an incarnation of Surya Deva. Evil had increased beyond the limit on earth. Bhumi Devi went to Brahma and complained that she could not bear the load. In fact, the Asuras who were evicted from Swarga had incarnated on earth and were creating trouble. Brahma asked the Devas also to incarnate on earth and destroy them. This could happen only if a war took place. Brahma asked Surya to incarnate as Kunti's son, Karna. Karna's friendship and support would give Duryodhana to get into conflict with the Pandavas.
