Intro

Eka sloki Ramayanam – Ramayana in one stanza

Aadho Rama thapo vananu gamanam, Hathwa mrugam kanchanam,

Vaidehi haranam, jatayu maranam, Sugreeva sambhashanam,
Bali nigrahanam, samudhra tharanam, Lanka pureem dahanam,
Paschad Ravana Kumbha karna madanam, Ethat ithi Ramayanam ||

Once Rama went to forest,

He chased the deer,

Sitha was kidnapped,

Jatayu was killed, There were talks with Sugreeva,

Bali was killed,

The sea was crossed,

Lanka was burnt,

And later Ravana and Kumbha karna,

Were also killed.

This in short is the story of Ramayanam

Day 1

Starting today we shall be sharing #SreeRamaDasa #SriRamaDasa‘s take on #AdhyathmaRamayana.

#AdhyathmaRamayana by #SriRamaDasa – Day 1

Adhyathma Ramayana is essentially a Puranic work demonstrating the inquisitiveness of Parvati and clear, unambiguous explanation by Shiva. But in the orthodox circles of Rama devotees, the Adhyatama Ramayana is considered to be a Mantra-sastra, a sacred book, each stanza of which is revered as a Mantra (mystic syllable) and devoutly repeated in a ceremonial way.

And Thus Shiva tells the story of Rama to Parvati –

“Due to always being burdened by Ravana, And his great army of Rakshasa. Goddess Earth took the form of a cow and along with crowds of sages and devas, Reached the land of Brahma who sits on a lotus and cried. And when she told about all her pain to Lord Brahma, And Lord Brahma after deep thought for some time,

Came to the conclusion that there is no alternative, Other than going and appealing to Lord of the Vedas , God Vishnu, And after thinking like this Lord Brahma with greatly added sorrow, Took all of them and reached the ocean of milk, And prayed the Lord along with the devas and sages.”

Shiva continued his story; Lord Vishnu tells Brahma the following –

“With a pure heart , in olden times, Kasyapa Prajapathi served me, For some time wishing to get a son, and I am happily ,

Fulfilling his wish and I am going to do it now.”

Kasyapa became a king called Dasaradha, In a place which is in earth, Of Brahma,

And kasyapa’s wife Adhithi became Dasaratha;’’s wife kousalya,

And I would be born as a son to them,

And there would be brother’s for me, And in the divine form , the goddess of universe , who is my friend, Who is the Goddess Yoga Maya would enter the house of Janaka, As the death to the clan of Rakshasas, not being born to any mother,

The devas shall be born in the world as monkey warriors,

For the sake of reducing the burden of Goddess earth,”

Told Lord Vishnu , and then the Lord of Vedas disappeared,

Brahma saluted him with great devotion as should we.

Adhyathma Ramayana is essentially a Puranic work demonstrating the inquisitiveness of Parvati and clear, unambiguous explanation by Shiva. But in the orthodox circles of Rama devotees, the Adhyatama Ramayana is considered to be a Mantra-sastra, a sacred book, each stanza of which is revered as a Mantra (mystic syllable) and devoutly repeated in a ceremonial way.

And Shiva continues the story of Rama to Parvati

Puthra labha alochana

(The thought of getting a son)

When King Dasaratha who had extremely good qualities,
Who was pure, king of Ayodhya, , Soul of justice , valorous hero,
Equal to one born in clan of devas, Really great valorous one,
One equal to God of love and one who is the gem of mercy ,
Along with queen Kausalya and with the two queens Kaikeyi and Sumathra, Who were giving great credence to looking after their husbands,
And along with his ministers, after thinking over the problems and blessings, Was ruling over the entire earth and due to his being not blessed by sons,
Along with great sorrow saluted the two lotus like feet of his guru and asked, “How and when can I get good sons , kindly tell me for,
If I does not have sons , for me all the wealth that I have only leads to sorrow.”

The great sage of penance , Vasishta, after hearing this, Laughed and told to king Dasaratha like this,
“ You would soon get four sons, so do not be sad, Thinking about this in your mind, Oh king,

Without delay get sage Rishya Srunga ,
And immediately perform the Puthra Kameshti sacrifice.”
