The Ultimate Liberator!

For the seekers of knowledge
Can there be a knowledge?
better than
The Knowledge of The Divine, Shri Rama!

The one who liberated
Even the blades of grasses
And all the swarms of ants

Leaving none behind
That ever existed
In the Good City of Ayodhya

And placed them in
An exotic heaven
Created exclusively for them
By the Great Grandshire Brahma!


Ramayanam is Agriculture
Bhagavatham is Harvest

The twin-syllable, Rama
When a devotee exalts!
The Birth-Death cycle
It permanently halts

Goodness and Wealth
It everyday brings
Sin and poverty
It cleanses and shrinks


Goodness Honesty Sweetness Simplicity
Gentleness Strength Humility Bravery
Valour Talent Prowess Success
Memory Trustworthiness Heroism Genuinity
Such adorable qualities and so much more
By chanting Rama's name you will score!


My Lord's Story: Goodness Incarnate

Ramayanam in English poetry.

The Supreme Lord of the Universe was once born on this earth as a Human Being, faced challenges and had His share of pain and pleasure going through both good and bad times like any of us. Like any of us He too, took His turn in laughter and cry.

This humility of The Lord, that makes Him come down to earth and share with us our difficulties to show us a way to handle them is what I admire in Him. This quality of Him, makes me surrender to Him unconditionally and makes me want to sing His Glory on and on and on.

My Lord's Story is an out pour of my devotion that seeps out in gratitude for the pains He took to be a lighthouse for us, to cross the ocean of Samsara.

16 Good qualities of Lord Rama.

1) He never spoke lies.

2)He never spoke foul language.

3)He will not expect the other person to speak first. He himself will smile and start the relationship.

4)He never played games that involved luck.

5)He never remembered what he gave to others.

6)He never thought about his greatness.

7)If someone did many misdeeds to him but only one good thing sometime, he will only talk about that good thing and never about those many misdeeds.

8)If someone comes to him criticizing him, he will understand why that person is disappointed with him and answer him in such a way that the misunderstanding is erased.

Very happy to read about the good qualities of our Lord Shri Ram. Many thanks for posting this Ramesh.

Our Lord is Purushottam. He had all the excellent qualities that made him an 'ideal' person. We may never be able to fully cover all His good qualities or be satiated talking about it.

You may consider writing a book focused on His good qualities..

One of His qualities which is very endearing is his equanimity and equipoise in life. He was never unduly affected by what happened to Him. Thus, whether he was to be coronated as the future King or sent to exile, he was happy in both situations..

shri ramesh sadasivam said...

Thanks for your encouragement Vish!

Yeah, we can go on talking about Our Lord Shri Rama! And there is so much we can learn from our Lord, We can life times...In Worshiping and celebrating Our Lord!

Loard Rama is "samdarshi".

Who is not excited in favourable situation and not depressed in unfavorable situation. Always calm, peaceful, and satisfied.

He always perform ("kartavya" / "dharma") duties, happily and honestly. (As friend, as brother, as son, as king as student, etc eg. perfect & superb personality means loard rama)

He is kind, loving, caring, generous, wise, obey Guru (master/teacher/saint)

His each quality is unbeatable. No one can be like him. We just can try to be like him.

He is Greatest character, holy, bold (powerful), charming, master in behaviour, master in war art, great king, simple & sober (no proud), transparent person, always speak truth, never hide any truth, confident personality, never talk about his abilities to other, believe to perform good deeds for society, believe to live for others, can give everything to needful( great donor ), Great devotee.

No one can count his all positive & great qualities.

Always obey his alder (guru,parents),
Respect everyone, his life is an example how we should live. No matter whatever the situation is, be calm, face the situation with the same spirit as you perform while your favourable situation. How to perform our duties with happiness & honestly.

All positive qualities we can find in him eventhough his qualities cannot be counted.

(Thank you shri ramesh sadasivam ji,
For this blog)
