I am not sure if "Ayana" in sanskrit means without ending. The name of vishnu when formless and endless is Anantha and not Narayana. Also, Narayana is depicted standing with the four arms holding an ayudha (or weapon) in each arm (Shanka - Conch, Chakra, Gadha - Mace, Padma - Lotus)helping a human through the 4 directions/aims of a human life (Purusharthas)- Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha.

Also, the mantra provided in the Narayana Kavacha is "Om Namo Narayanaya" and not "Om Namo Narayana"

Narayanan song of the prodigy
Narayanan is a song by the Prodigy on the album "fat of the land"; which I think a link should be added to the main page. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1UDaWTkAbs —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:59, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
Some of the views expressed are those not of other Vaishnavite schools. Schools of Vaishnavism, such as those followed by Ramanuja, hold Vishnu to be supreme and Krishna as an avatar. Only the Gaudiya Vaishnavite school makes a sharp distinction and hold Krishna to be supreme.
This article says: "Narayana is another name for Vishnu, as Vishnu is a finite form of infinite Narayan."
I really do not understand from where that comes. As far as I know Vishnu is also infinite. In Vishnu sahasranama one of the names of Vishnu is Ananta or "infinite". 22.214.171.124 (talk) 17:18, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
