"Om Namo Narayanaya" -Ashtakshara mantram.Just like Jyotirlings which are swayumbu kshetras there are 8 ashtakshara swayam vyakta kshetras of lord vishnu as said by Swami Ramanujam.The sloka is as follows:

Srirangam Venkatadrischa SrimushNam Totaparvatam
Salagramam Pushkaramcha NaranarayaNAshramam
Naimisham Cheti ME SthananyasoU Mukthi PradhAnivai
YetusvashtAksharaIkAka: VarNamUrthir VasAmyaham
TishtAmi KrishNa KshEtrE puNya SapthakOgatha:
AshtAksharasya Mantrasya SarvAkshara Maya SadA

In this verse Lord Narayana points out that the eight Swayam Vyakta Kshetrams
of Srirangam, Tirupathi, SrimushNam, Vanamamalai, Salagramam, Badri,and
NaimisharaNyam,Pushkar grant liberation to those who visit the place. The Lord
as the Archa Murthy at each of these Kshetrams signifies one Aksharam of his
Ashtakshara Mantram.
