A prediction

In 2013, 1 Tuesday, I chanted a whole day praising Rama's Feet. The next day morning I had a dream. In it I won an Oscar. I'll win 4 sure.

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!

-Nammazhvaar


Ramayanam is Agriculture
Bhagavatham is Harvest
-Me


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

-Kambar


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!

-Me

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.

Valentine's day thoughts


I don't have anything for or against Valentine's day. If I had a girl, I would definitely celebrate it. I don't have one and therefore I don't celebrate it. I've never been in a two way relationship. Yet, I have many love stories in my life. All stories have ended at the courtship level. And the jist of the stories has always been the same.

A girl would seem to be interested in me. Believing which I would take step. She would all on a sudden seem interested on some one else, or at least, not so interested in me. It would turn me off and I would put an end to taking steps. But I always, at the bottom of the heart, would hope that if the girl truly loved me, either she would wait for me or would try talking to me.

Not a single girl did that and therefore I've been very single. (I am not blaming any one here.) But if you think I'm feeling unlucky or sad about it, you're wrong. I've realised that this misfortune is actually a blessing in disguise.

I've been enjoying my bachelor life like a lion that roams free in the wild. I never had to report myself to anyone. I could go to a movie wearing a wrinkled shirt. I didn't have to settle down in a job that I really didn't like. I could admire women's beauty without being guilty of being unfaithful. I've smoked like a train without anyone to question me and I've roamed all around the city by walk not caring to buy a bike or hire an auto. Bachelor's life is a no worry period in a man's life and I am so glad that I could prolong it thus far.

Meanwhile, I've realised that there is no such thing as 'True Love.' Everyone's love/crush/infatuation/interest is like a shrub. If time and environment favour it, it grows into a tree and stands for ever.

There was a time I was looking for a girl who truly loves me. Then, there came a time when I was waiting for a girl who was destined to live with me. But now, I am not anymore waiting for anyone. I'm happy single. I know this freedom would soon be snatched away and therefore I would enjoy this freedom to the fullest, as I always have. Also, there wouldn't be any Love episodes in my life. Straight away, it would be marriage. It would be more than enough for me, if my parents choose the girl and I see her for the first time on the day of my marriage!

I am truly a Hanuman! Ain't I? Jai Shri Ram! Jai Jai Shri Ram!!
