Shiva Sahasranama -- Shiva Purana Version

Many eons ago, a fierce war was raged between gods and the demons. The gods received a sound trashing and fled. While they were running away, they happened to encounter vishnu. When Vishnu asked the reason and learnt about it, he advised the gods to start praying Lord Tripurari (Shiva) since "only he is capable of subduing these demons". Then saying so Vishnu also joined the gods to invoke Lord Shiva to their presence. Guided by Lord Vishnu they chanted the 1000 names of Lord Shiva.
