Each and every god/deities having corresponding mantras itself. However Lord Paramesvara said in Vishnu Saharanamam the most valuable and powerful mantra to be chanted is:

ईश्वर उवाच
श्रीराम राम रामेती रमे रामे मनोरमे ।
सहस्रनाम तत्तुल्यं रामनाम वरानने ॥27 ॥

ishwara uvAcha:
sri rAma rAma rAmethi rame rAme manorame |
sahasranAma thatthulyam rAma nAma varAnane |

But my question is, what is the mantra (only one mantra) if I going to chant and get blessing from all deities (in three worlds swargaloka, bhooloka, pathalaloka) and satisfy them.

  • Aum or om would be that mantra. Or else.some mantras of vedic samhitas would be of that idea – Rakesh Joshi Aug 3 '18 at 22:24
  • Further gayatri is general purpose mantra and is considered the most important of all vedic mantras – Rakesh Joshi Aug 3 '18 at 22:25
  • @RakeshJoshi, pranava and gayatri mantra are not for distribution without qualification. – ram Aug 4 '18 at 7:20

There technically is "no only one mantra" if you're planning to please all the deities in the Triloka. But there are alternatives. If you wish to get the mantra which all the gods adhere to and pay allegiance, but non-Vedantic - then try the Gayatri Mantra. It is present in many sources, however I am taking it from the Surya Upanishad.

Surya Upanishad Verse 3

Aum bhūr-bhuva̱ḥ-suva̍ḥ |
tat sa̍vi̱tur vare̎ṇya̱m bhargo de'vasya dh'īmahi |
dhiyo̱ yo na̍ḥ praco̱dayā̎t ||

Om, Earth, middle region and sky; we meditate on the adorable splendor of Savitar (Sun) who may inspire our thoughts.

Vishnu and Shiva mantras are generally favoured if you want direct blessings from every god out there.

Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya.

Om Namo Bhagavate Rudraya.

These mantras are invoked at the beginning of many Puranas and stotras.

If you want an all encompassing Gayatri for deities combined in a single flow you can refer to Mahanarayana Upanishad and keep on chanting all the Gayatris.

Mahanarayana Upanishad

If you're looking for a deity-less all encompassing mantra, there is only ONE and ONE only:

AUM - ॐ

  • Swargaloka, Bhuloka and Patala exist in this material world. If you are aiming for Moksha (liberation) you don’t need the grace of beings in these three worlds. Secondly, as mentioned by Arkaprabha, there is no ONE mantra... – Hayagreev Ram Aug 2 '18 at 19:07
  • @HayagreevRam how many times is moksha or mukti mentioned in vedas.? – Rakesh Joshi Aug 3 '18 at 22:25
  • @RakeshJoshi The concept of Moksha is mentioned mostly in the Upanishads, which are considered to be a part of the Vedas. Not sure as to how many times it is mentioned... – Hayagreev Ram Aug 3 '18 at 23:18
  • @HayagreevRam ok when you have time go through my post on upanishad and Vedas. – Rakesh Joshi Aug 3 '18 at 23:19
  • @RakeshJoshi But where can I find them?? – Hayagreev Ram Aug 3 '18 at 23:20

The Gayatri Mantra is only for the brahmins who have been initiated properly as per our scriptures. This I found in Writings of Sri Sitaramdas Omkarnath, a famous saint from Bengal.

The following mantra which is there in so many puja books is beautiful:

प्रीयतां पुण्डरीकाक्ष सर्वयज्ञेश्वरो हरिः।
तस्मिन् तुष्टे जगत् तुष्टं प्रीणीते प्रीणितं जगत्॥
Translation: May Lotus-eyed Hari, who is the Lord of all divine activities or sacrifices be pleased. If He is satisfied, all is satisfied. If He is pleased, all is pleased.

The Gitaprasasti also says: सर्वदेवमयो हरिः meaning that Hari is the abode of all gods.

So I think the above mantra can praise all deities.

  • not only brahmins but anyone who is having upanayana or sacred thread can do it. it includes other varnas too.. – Rakesh Joshi Jan 21 at 21:41
  • The gayatris of kshatriyas and vaishyas are slightly different so far as i know – user17294 Jan 22 at 4:28
