I would like to tell you all an incident, which was told to me by my mother.In coastal Karnataka, there is a highway, named National Highway no.48, which connects Goa to Mangalore, and then further goes to Kerala.There are many towns and cities on the route of this national highway.Also there are many wondrous beaches.One of the beaches is Maravanthe Beach.It is mind-boggling beach.The highway road passes alongside the sea.On one side is the sea, and on the other side is a river called Suvarnanakha.A very beautiful sight, as the road is sandwiched between the river and the seashore.
On the left side is seen the Suvarnanakha river, and on the right side is the Arabian Sea.In the middle is the National Highway No.48.I have passed through this highway, and I have seen this beach many times.
Well some years ago, this highway was in danger of getting submerged under the sea.If the highway would have gone under the seawater, it would have been difficult to build a new easy road.
A noted scholar, and well versed pandit, whose name I cannot recall now, assembled a group of men,to save the road.They all sat near the seashore,on the sands, and at 6 pm at evening, started chanting the Vishnu Sahasranama, in chorus.They started reciting the Vishnu Sahasranama together,at 6 pm in evening, for many days.And Wonder of the wonders ! The sea started going back !!! Such was the power of Vishnu Sahasranama, that even the sea was forced to go back !! This highway was saved because of this only.
Today, all those group members who had participated in the chanting, recite the Vishnu Sahasranama at their respective homes.The power and collective recital of the Vishnu Sahasranama, has thus; very high power.
So, all of you should recite the Vishnu Sahasranama, every evening....
