Preamble
By uttering Vishnu's thousand names,
one can succeed in transcending all sorrow
Yudhishthira said: Who may be said to be the one god in the world? Who may be said to be the one object which is our sole refuge? Who is he by worshipping whom or hymning whose praises human being would get what is beneficial? What religion is that which, according to thy judgment, is the foremost of all religions? What are those Mantras by reciting which a living creature becomes freed from the bonds of birth and life?
Bhishma said: One should always, with alacrity and throwing away all languor, hymn the praises of that Lord of the universe, that god of gods (viz., Vasudeva), who is Infinite and the foremost of all Beings, by uttering His thousand names. By always worshipping with reverence and devotion that immutable Being, by meditating on Him, by hymning His praises and bowing the head unto Him, and by performing sacrifices unto Him, indeed by always praising Vishnu, who is without beginning and without end or destruction, who is the Supreme Lord of all the worlds, and who is the Master and Controller of the universe, one can succeed in transcending all sorrow.
Verily, He is devoted to the Brahmanas (Brahmins), conversant with all duties and practices, the enhancer of the fame and achievement of all persons, the master of all the worlds, exceedingly wonderful, and the prime cause of the origin of all creatures. Even this, in my judgment, is the foremost religion of all religions, viz., one should always worship and hymn the praises of the lotus-eyed Vasudeva with devotion.
He is the highest Energy. He is the highest Penance. He is the highest Brahma. He is the highest Refuge. He is the most holy of all holies, the most auspicious of all auspicious objects. He is the god of all the gods and He is the immutable father of all creatures. On the advent of the primal Yuga, all creatures spring from Him. On the expiration, again of a Yuga, all things disappear in Him.
[Note: The Hindu sages never attempt to speculate on the original creation of the universe. Their speculations, however, are concerned with what is called Avantara srishti or that creation which springs forth with the awakening of Brahma. Creation and destruction have occurred ceaselessly and will occur ceaselessly. The original creation is impossible to conceive as Eternity cannot have a beginning.]
Hear, O king, the thousand names, possessed of great efficacy in destroying sins, of that foremost One in the worlds, that Master of the universe, viz., Vishnu. All those names derived from His attributes, secret and well-known, of the high-souled Vasudeva which were sung by Rishis, I shall recite to thee for the good of all. They are Om! He that enters all things, besides Himself. He that covers all things........

  1. He that is four-formed. The Lord, the Infinite is considered as having four forms meaning that He, in His manifestations in the world, takes these four forms.
    The Puranas have declared that the incarnations of the Lord in the various Yugas, are associated with different colours: white in Krita Yuga, red in Treta Yuga, yellow in Dvaapara Yuga and dark (black) in the Kali Yuga.
    According to Vedanta, the Lord, the Self, has four distinct expressions in the subjective life of each individual: the Waker, the Dreamer, the Deep-sleeper and the Pure Self. In the microcosm, the Lord's complete expression, in the total gross, subtle and causal bodies, is called as Viraat, Hiranyagarbha, Eeshvara and, beyond all bodies as the Eternal Paramaatman.
    [Above explanations courtesy Mypurohith]
  2. He that has four arms
  3. He from whom the four Purushas have sprung.
    (In the Aitareya Upanishad, the four Vyoohas or persons are mentioned: the person in the body, the person in the Chhandas or Vedic Mantras, the person n the Vedas and the Great Person).
    [Explanations within the brackets by courtesy Mypurohith]
  4. He that is the Refuge of the four modes of life and the four orders of men
  5. He that is of four souls (Mind, Understanding, Consciousness, and Memory)
