Narayanaya is another name for Vishnu who symbolizes the tendency inherent in all aspects of life to find a state of balance. This tendency manifests for example in the healing of wounds- in chemical bonds- as well as in the great incarnations such as Rama- Krishna- Buddha etc. who come to this plane when the order of the world is threatened. Vishnu preserves and maintains the cosmic order. He symbolizes compassion. This mantra attracts those who like responsibilities and who have a protective nature.
