ॐ नमो भगवते वासुदेवाय (Sanskrit)
ॐ નમો ભગ્વતે વાસુદેવાય (Gujarati)
Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya means
“Om, I bow to Lord Vasudeva or Lord Krishna”
This twelve syllable mantra is known as a Mukti (liberation) mantra and a spiritual formula for attaining freedom.
“ सर्वधर्मान्परित्यज्य मामेकं शरणं व्रज ।
अहं त्वां सर्वपापेभ्यो मोक्षयिष्यामि मा शुचः ॥१८- ६६॥”
Relinquishing everything else and all ideas of righteousness surrender unto me (Krishna) exclusively.
I (Krishna) will deliver you from all sins (sinful reactions), do not despair. [Gita 18/66]
Krishna also proclaimed “Everybody should recite “Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya” mantra daily whenever possible so that I will stand by them. I respond to the call of the heart immediately and invariably. See me in your duties. I am committed to those who are committed to their duties. Believe in putting faith in me and make me your own”.
