|| Om Sri Vishvaya Namaha Om ||
eshwaro vikrami dhanvi medhavi vikramah kramaha |
anuttamo duradarshah krutagnah krutiratmavan || 9 ||
an (un), utta, ma (me in mercy), ha (ha in hard)
One who has none superior (to him)
Uttama means one who is very good. Anuttama means one over whom there is none (greater). Vishnu is the Supreme. There is none even equal to HIM. So, the question of someone being better than HIM does not arise. Hence, Anuttama is a very apt name for Vishnu.
Om Anuttamaaya Namaha Om
