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.

Ganesha Pancharathnam and Me:


Ganesha Pancharathnam has always been very close to my heart. While I fast for Sankata Hara Chathurthi, the fourth day of the waning moon, for Lord Ganesha, Ganesha Pancharathnam acts as the Theme Song of The Day. For more than a couple of years, I had been hoping to write a similar song for Lord Rama in the same tune and style. Last Friday was Sankata Hara Chathurthi. I fasted. The next day, I wrote this poem, Rama Pancharathnam and posted it in my Tamil blog.

I realised Lord Ganesha had blessed me the previous day that my wish would be fulfilled. And to me, this song is nothing but a Gift by Lord Ganesha, to His Maternal-Uncle Shri Rama, through me.

This song is offered to My Lord Shri Rama which immense Gratitude and a million thanks to Lord Ganesha!

Jai Ganesha! Jai Jai Ganesha!
Jai Shri Ram! Jai Jai Shri Ram!!
