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.

Sita Weds Rama.

That which witnesses every cause
And That which performs without a pause
Were born on this earth to be Husband and Wife
Wishing to lead a human life

Both were born with a silver spoon
Both grew up like the sun and moon
Of course, they were in different places
One not knowing the other's traces

Time had come for them to unite again
And to be partners in life's pleasure and pain
Sage Vishwamitra entered the scene
And demanded The Sun to wipe darkness, clean!

The little Sun walked with His bow and arrow
And wiped off all the ascetics' sorrow
Amazed by the Prince's fight
The sage thanked Him for ending the plight

"You have indeed performed a mighty feat!
I would like to gift you a lifetime treat"
Saying this, the sage started to walk
The prince followed him without a talk!

On the way, was a good old rock
Which, among the fauna, was a laughing stock!
Some dust from the princes feet, on it did fall
And lo! There arose a woman beauteous and tall!

"You have released me off my husband's curse
For an act, I had did, ugly and worse"
Saying this thankfully, the woman vanished!
The little prince watched her, astonished.

They walked further and entered a city
Whose people never knew what was pity!
They walked through all its streets and lanes
Admiring eyes peeped through the window panes.

They then entered a palace gate
Which was nothing but, the plan of fate!
Warmly welcomed by the royal host
On that eve, they were the toast.

They were then taken, to see a bow
Which was on dais, kept for show!
It had humbled numerous kings and princes
Who attempted to lift it, to marry the princess!

Our little Prince took it like a piece of cake!
And broke the bow, as though it were fake!
All the witnesses sang hymns of praise
Swept off their feet by the prince's grace!

The Princess arrived there, a divine beauty!
Thinking, 'To serve this prince is my eternal duty'
Her eyes with shyness fixed on His feet
She garlanded Him, with a smile so sweet!

The Gods showered blessings from their divine abode,
Who always served this couple's accord!
Thus were married Sita and Rama
The Divine Duo who play the eternal drama!

I really enjoyed your blog! Like you I am also going thru a spiritual journey on my blog, and what you said about anger really resonated with me. You might like my blog. I'm chronicling my yearlong journey through the daily exercises in A Course In Miracles, and many of the concepts are very similar to the ones you write about.
