Om Namah Shivaya is a Hindu mantra in reverence to lord Shiva, who is a personification of the highest, most auspicious aspect of pure consciousness that resides in all beings.
The 5 syllables of the manta relate to the 5 elements, and that chanting Om Namah Shivaya purifies their corresponding sensory mechanisms for elevated awareness and enlightened action: na/earth/smell, ma/water/taste, shi/fire/sight, va/air/touch, ya/ether/hearing.
