Literally, it means- I bow to you, the all-pervading God.

Peace-the quality of our Soul

Om Nama Shivaya

There is an original and causal power concealed in the mantra ‘Om Namah Shivaya’. If one chants this mantra reverentially as well as faithfully, he will soon find his path of salvation. Those who wish to have a Guru, will find a guru. If the person decides to meditate, sooner or later he will surely find his steps and methods of sadhana including specific meditation techniques. And if someone wishes to increase his power of will, he will achieve that too.
