Perhaps the best translation into English of Vishnu Sahasranamam is by Eknath Easwaran. This book entitled Thousand names of Vishnu is available from the Nilgiripress. The poetry is quite as well as the explanation (I have not compared side by side withParashara Bhattars commentary) is good for a translation. Costs $12 for paper back and $22 for hard bound. Excellent quality books. Can be phone ordered by calling 1-800-475-2369. Suprabhatam translation will also be good if we can convince Eknath Easwaran to take up on that project, otherwise , it will be just like Krish has pointed out. By the way a poetic translation of Bhagavadgita has been made by Swamy Ramanujananda of Ramakrishna Mutt in Kerala. It is okay. K. Sreekrishna.
