Om Narayanaya Nama – It importance from Narayana Upanishad

Let ‘OM’ be first said, then nama and afterwards Narayanaya.
‘Om’ is one syllable
‘Nama’ is two syllables and
‘Narayanaya’ five syllables.
Thus ‘Om Narayanaya Nama’ is that eight syllable invocation, from the repetition of which are obtained: long life, wealth, and progeny; and finally, immortality, by participating in the bliss ineffable of god.
The syllable OM is composed of the letters, ‘a’, ‘u’, and ‘m’, and he who repeats these letters thus joined together shall be delivered from the miseries of transitory existence.
Hence Om Narayanaya Nama is that invocation, which whoever repeats, he shall ascend to Vaikunta.
