The structure of this mantra is a simple S/V/O: I/adore/14 names of Vishnu. Visualizing each attribute and really feeling each mood is very helpful to incorporate those divine characteristics and capacities into your inner Being. This may be sung after chanting Om Namo Naraayanaaya.
Naraayana means abode/goal (ayana) of man (nara).
