This penta - syllablic word "NAMASIVAYA", consisting of 10 letters is a potent chant with deep 'mystic' significance. It simply means "I bow to Siva", but it is endowed with such mysticism and infinite power that it blesses the chanter with an invulnerable Armour that he comes out victorious in every venture he undertakes. Normally it is imparted to the disciple or sadhaka by the Guru - preceptor at the time of initiation to join into the fold of Saivism. The sadhaka is enjoined to chant it prefixing it, with the pranava AUM invariably. Hence twice blessed - two flowers at a single pick, in a way. Importantly, it is one of the three Saiva emblems, the others being smearing of sacred ash and wearing of Rudraksha mala, going by the name of visible emblems discussed above. And the panchakshari is a mental one, so invisible.
