From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narayana 100907

Narayana (नारायण; nārāyaṇa) or Narayan is an important Sanskrit name for Vishnu, and in many contemporary vernaculars a common Indian name. Narayana is also identified as the original man, Purusha. The Puranas present divergent views on Narayana. In the Kurma Purana he is identified with Brahman and Krishna-Vishnu, but in the Brahma Vaivarta Purana Narayana is considered different from Krishna and also considered part of Krishna.[1]

In the Mahabharata Krishna is often referred to as Narayana and Arjuna as Nara.[2] The epic identifies them both in plural 'Krishnas', or as part incarnations of the earlier incarnations of Vishnu, recalling their mystical identity as Nara-Narayana.[3] Followers of Lord Swaminarayan believe that Narayan manifested himself as Swaminarayan.[4]


In Sanskrit, another name for water is ‘Naara’. The Supreme Lord Vishnu whose resting place ('Ayana') is ‘Naara’ is therefore called Naarayana. "Naara" also means the living entities (Jivas). Therefore, another meaning of Naarayana is 'resting place for all living entities. The close association of Narayana with water explains the frequent depiction of Narayana in Hindu art as standing or sitting on an ocean. Another important translation of Narayana is "The supreme Man who is the foundation of all men".

Another interpretation of the word Narayana sees Nara meaning "human" and Ayana as "direction/goal". Hence Narayana refers to the "direction of a human" (or the one that helps a human to his/her goal, i.e. towards moksha). Nara is related to moksha as both are rooted to the Water element (Ap), one of the Great Elements (Mahābhūta). (See also Tattva).

Nara means humans and Ayana means shelter so Narayana means the shelter of all human beings. it says in Sama Veda Om Namo Narayanayeti mantra upasaka Vaikuntha bhuvanam gamishyati so Whoever chants Om Namo Narayana mantra reaches the ultimate goal Vaikuntha planet there one rejoices eternal blissful life. vaikuntha is the supreme spiritual abode there is nothing exists beyond Vaikuntha, Vaikuntha means no desires.

Actually Lord Narayan is the supreme almighty, everything emnates from him in Yajur Veda it says om adha nitya Narayan ha, brahma narayanaha, shivasca narayana ha, shankarsca narayanaha and kalacha narayanaha, sarva bhutasca mekam via narayana Karan purusha makarana parabramahan and ultimately it says savo deve eko Narayana na dwitiyacha kaschit means there is only one god Narayana and no second one. He himself expands as the Brahma as the creator, the Vishnu as maintainer and the Shiva as the annihilator. whether you read Rig Veda or any other Vedas and Puranas it has said Lord Narayan is the supreme and there is absolutely nothing beyond him, it says in Srimad Bhagavatam Yesha tu Narayanam devam adevam isham that means Narayan is the lord of the lords beyond him there is nothing exists. Whoever worships with love and devotion achieves the highest destination Vaikuntha.
