Is there any difference in applicability between the mantras "Om namo baghavate vasudevaaya" vs. "Om namo narayanaya"? Is there a superior among these 2 mantras? And which one can be recited by the un-initiated?

    Finding the superior mantra and the greatest mantra etc., gives rise to primarily opinion based answers and who can recite the mantra is a duplicate of old questions. – Sarvabhouma Jan 2 '18 at 1:55

  • Sorry i must have said 'dwadasakshari' - only realized after posting topic. Also, when posting topic, no match turned up. That is why question on who can recite. – JRD Jan 2 '18 at 6:39
  • This is not an opinion based question! The Q is valid and it can be answered according to the scripture, namely perhaps some scripture may have said some mantra is superior to some other mantra. By the way, some scripture says some mantras are superior to some other, this is not uncommon. – brahma jijnasa Jan 3 '18 at 11:45

That mantra is best which we find mentally repeating without our being aware of our action. In fact all mantras are oriented to serve the purpose of taking sadhaka to his inner consciousness where God resides who is nameless and formless.
