sri rama mantram

sri rama mantram

The syllable raa was picked from the great eight syllabled Narayana mantra, Om Na mo Naa raa ya naa ya and the syllable ma was picked from the great five syllabled Siva mantra, Na ma si vaa ya. Thus Rama mantra combines the power of the Namasivaya mantra and the Om Namo Narayanaya maha mantra. Thus the “Rama” mantra represents the perfect merger of Siva and Narayana. Hence the pre-eminent position of the Rama mantra amongst mantras.
