Śrīkṛṣṇa spoke: O Arjuna! Are you aware of those names from sahasranāma stotra (1000 names panegyric) on knowing which a man liberates various sins. One should know and remember (them as follows): First is Hari and second is Keśava. Third is Padmanābha and fourth is Vāmana.
Fifth is Vedagarbha and sixth is Madhusūdana. Seventh is Vāsudeva and eighth is Varāha. Ninth is Puṇḍarīkākṣa and tenth is indeed Janārdana. One should know eleventh is Kṛṣṇa and twelfth is Śrīdhara.
Understand that these twelve names are spoken by Viṣṇu. He who reads these twelve names every morning and evening, listen the puṇyaphala (fruits of virtue) that becomes of him. He attains the puṇya of a thousand Cāndrāyaṇa, a hundred kanyādāna, and a thousand aśvamedha without any doubt.
Especially on Amāyā Pūrṇimā and on Dvādaśī, he who reads these names at morning liberates all the conglomerate of sins.
