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.

Twitter Ramayanam

Twitter Ramayanam is the condensed version of Valmiki Ramayanam. Similar to the seven cantos of the original version, twitter Ramayanam contains seven tweets.

I hope you know that tweet is a message posted in the twitter website and it must not exceed 140 characters including the punctuation marks and spaces.

So.... Here we go

Bala Tweet:
Young Rama was a joy to His parents and an excellent student. He went with Vishwamitra, killed Tataka, broke Shiva's bow and married Sita.

Ayodhya Tweet:
Ram exiled Himself to fulfill a promise by His father to His step mother. Sita and Lakshman went along. Bharath awaited His return and rule.

Aranya Tweet:
A demonic lady messed with Ram and got hurt. To avenge this, she set her elder brother Ravan on Sita. Ravan abducted Sita by cowardly means.

Kishkindha Tweet:
Ram and Lakshman searched for Sita. Ram made a pact with good Sugriva and killed King Vali. King Sugriva sent his army in search for Sita.

Sundara Tweet:
Ram's devotee Hanuman leaped over the sea and found Sita. In a fit of anger he wreaked havoc in Lanka, burned it down and returned to Ram.

Yuddha Tweet:
Ram humbled the ocean god enabling a bridge to Lanka. Ram killed Ravan. Sita proved her chastity by entering a pyre. Ram redeemed His crown.

Uthara Tweet:
Ram's rule was glorious. To sustain its glory, He sacrificed His beloved Sita. Yet He ever lived in her thought until he ascended to heaven.

Jai Shri Ram! May all those who read this Twitter Ramayanam be as much blessed as the ones who read the entire Ramayanam.

Its a laudable effort, and language used is simple & grammatically correct. But it leaves out many gaps as many characters/ objects are not described. I know Tweet's word-limitation. Yet this cud be overcome by using short, typical internet lingo. You may like to redraft/ re-tweet!- SubiNagpal
