Further to Gabriele's response here is the breakdown of the words.

OM (aum): used at the beginning of prayers as a salutation

namah: obeisance, salutation, honour

bhagavate (dative case of bhagavat): adorable, divine, blessed, holy, illustrious, worshipful

ramaNAya (dative of Ramana): Sri Ramana Maharshi

'Salutation to Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi'

Regards,

Miles

Om Namo Bhagavate Sri Ramanaya

T.S.Vaidyanathan

 

This mantra was revealed to Sri T.K. Sundaresa Iyer, an ardent

devotee, and subsequently approved by Bhagavan to invoke his

presence. It is known as the Dwadakshara Mantra of Bhagavan, which

means that it has twelve letters.

In Hinduism it is common to keep the actual mantra hidden, referring

to it as a five or six-lettered mantra without actually telling the

mantra. This is done to protect the integrity and purity of the

mantra so that the uninitiated may not misuse it.

When we read in Suri Nagamma's Letters from Sri Ramanasramam that the

Dwadakshara mantra was being chanted before the Cow Lakshmi during

her final days, this is the mantra to which she was referring. The

actual meaning is, in brief, as follows:

Om

This is the bija mantra of Lord Shiva, deriving its origin from Soham,

which indicates the unity of jiva and Shiva. It also refers to the

immanent form of Lord Shiva. It is sometimes called Pranava, which is

believed to be the fundamental sound behind all creation.

Namo

Mana in Sanskrit means mind. The mind of jiva goes out towards the

world. If the word is reversed, mana becomes nama, which means

turning to God or Self within. Namah is a common ending of most

divine names meaning "I turn to you." Thus Namo is grammatically

necessitated.

Bhagavate

bhaga.

There are six bhagas indicative of Divinity.

Only God or His true incarnations can possess them.

The attributes are all-around power, dharma, fame, prosperity, knowledge and dispassion.

 

 

Sri

Has several meanings, but in this context it means "Gracious.

 

Ramanaya

One who revels in the Self.

 

So the meaning of the mantra is

 

"I take refuge in the Gracious Divine Lord Ramana."
