    IIRead this from my friend. She forward this msg to me. Hope it's useful for u all. Importanc of chanting Vishnu Sahasranamam.

    Every person has a Slokam from Vishnu Sahasranama Sthothram, based on his or her birth star and paadam. On chanting that Slokam everyday, the person attains spiritual and material benefits. To know what is your Slokam you have to follow the method explained here:

    In Vishnu Sahasranama Sthothram, there are 108 slokas. Totally there are 27 stars, list of which is given below. Each star or nakshatram has 4 paadas. Each person is born in one of the paadas. Therefore totally there are 108 paadas, in one-to-one correspondence with the 108 slokas of Vishnu Sahasranaama Sthothram. Your slokam is that which corresponds to the serial number of paadam in which you are born. For example, if your star is Rohini, paadam is 3rd, your slokam no. = Ashwini 4 +Bharani 4 + Kruttika 4 + Rohini 3 = 15th slokam of Vishnu Sahasranaama Sthothram, which is "Lokaadhyakshassuraadhyaksho..."

    This is the list of nakshathras and the sets of slokam numbers for each star:
    1) Ashwini - 1-4
    2) Bharani - 5-8
    3) Kruttika - 9-12
    4) Rohini - 13-16
    5) Mrugasira - 17-20
    6) Ardra - 21-24
    7) Punarvasu - 25-28
    8) Pushyami - 29-32
    9) Aaslesha - 33-36
    10) Magha - 37-40
    11) Purva Phalguni - 41-44
    12) Uttara Phalguni - 45-48
    13) Hasta - 49-52
    14) Chitra - 53-56
    15) Swati - 57-60
    16) Vishakha - 61-64
    17) Anuradha - 65-68
    18) Jyeshttha - 69-72
    19) Moola -73-76
    20) Purva Ashaadha - 77-80
    21) Uttara Ashaadha - 81-84
    22) Sravanam 85-88
    23) Dhanishttha - 89-92
    24) Shathabhisham - 93-96
    25) Purva Bhaadrapada - 97-100
    26) Uttara Bhaadrapada - 101-104
    27) Revati - 105-108

    Vishnu Sahasranaama Sthothram has the power to activate Sahasraara Chakra, cause Atmajnaana and Brahmajnaana. To attain Moksha, one's Sahasraara Chakra must be fully opened. Daily concentrated reading of VSS will activate the Kundalini and other Chakras too. VSS contains the 1008 names of the Bhagawan. It was compiled by Sage Veda Vyaasa, and is a part of Mahaabhaaratam. In Mahaabhaaratam, it is told by Bheeshma on his 'ampasayya' to Yudhishtthira (Dharma Raaja) who wanted to know what is the way to attain Moksha..., who asks "ko dharmassarvadharmaanaam bhavatah pramo mataha, kim japan muchyate jantur janmasamsaarabandhanaat ," meaning, which is the greatest dharma and by chanting what do we attain Moksha. Bheeshma chants the VSS to Pandavaas who were present before him at that time.

    I chant Vishnu Sahasranamam along with M.S. Subbulakshmiji's voice everyday but I don't follow any rules which you said about birth star and etc. I can say one thing, chanting gives me happiness / peace of mind that I can't explain.

    The complete chanting of Vishnu sahasranama will take about 20 -25 mins; Better to chant it fully for best results; one should learn properly and chant since right pronunciation is important
