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.
