Mukunda Mala Stotra 16 – The only rescue from the waves of material existence
he martyah paramam hitam shrinuta vo vakshyami sankshepatah
samsararnavam apad-urmi-bahulam samyak pravishya sthitah
nana-jnanam apasya cetasi namo narayanayety amum
mantram sa-pranavam pranama-sahitam pravartayadhvam muhuh
O mortal beings, you have submerged yourselves fully in the ocean of material existence, which is filled with the waves of misfortune. Please hear as I briefly tell you how to attain your supreme benefit. Just put aside your various attempts at gaining knowledge and instead begin constantly chanting the mantra om namo narayanaya and bowing down to the Lord.
