On this day, I would like to share the most celebrated chant of the great Soul, the “ASHTakshara Maha Mantra: OM SHRI RAAGHAVENDRAAYA NAMAHA”, in the audio clipping posted below.

Om shrI raghavEndraayanamaha ityaSHTaakshara mantrataha

This verse from Shri Raghavendra Stotra, composed by Shri Appannachaarya, describes the significance of the AshTa Akshara(8 lettered phrase: om shri raaghavendraaya namah) thus: One who chants the aSHTaakshara mantra of Om Shri RaaghavEndraayanamaha, daily, shall gain all that he desires for, meaning all his dreams shall come true and there is no doubt about this. Such is the conviction with which the ardent devotee of Shri Raghavendra Swamy has composed this verse.
