Say it again and again ! The mantra that purifies your mind, thoughts and body. You see it in every Vishnu temple. This mantra has lots of link with a place called Thirukostiyur near Karaikudi in Tamil Nadu. Sri Ramanajua learned this manthra from his guru in exchange of a promise on Shri Lakshmi Narasimha Murthy (Avathar of Lord Vishnu) that he won't say it out for common people. The moment he learned this mantra from his guru he yelled it sitting on top of the Thirukostiyour temple. Sri Ramanuja wants every human to know this mantra and get his soul purified saying this mantra again and again. Eventually his guru realized that its a great mistake from his part for not saying this mantra out and keeping it known to a very closed circle. He praised Shri Ramanuja then.

Thirukostiyur temple is one of the 108 sacred Vishnu temples and speaks about the unique shaped architecture of the ancient kings of Tamil Nadu. Thirumeiyyam another great temple of Lord Vishnu is located near Thirukostiyur. Thirumeiyyam is also one of the 108 sacred Vishnu temples.
