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.

Worshipping The Lord with Actor Kamal Hassan's titles.

Kamal KuttaiKamal NettaiKamal UlagaNayagan ShriKamalaHassan
AboorvaSagotharan AskaarNayagan MaruthaNaayagan ShriVishwaroopan
PunnagaiMannan SakalaKalaaVallavan Sathya ShriPanchaThanthiran
Naayakan DevarMagan Vikram Indian ShriAalavanthaan

This photo of Kamal Hassan is very apt here. Because, this is the way he is looking at the Lord. With one eye. One sided view point. That's why all he has about Our Lord is only complaints. But still, as you can see here, he cannot stay away from using Our Lord's Names in His Titles nor can he stop adding beautiful songs about Our Lord in his movies. Anyway because of Him, devotees of The Great Lord Maha Vishnu in Tamil Nadu have got so many beautiful songs about Our Lord!

Also, this person is a True Vaishnavite in the true sense, though he is an atheist. He has donated his body for research. According to him, there is no soul, it is just the body that is magically function. (he he he... Will believe in such magic but will not accept the logical conclusion that there is an highly intelligent design behind this body and that it needs some intelligence to work for such a thing to exist) Anyway, this person believes he is his body. And he has given it for the welfare of the society. Which means he has given himself for the larger welfare of the society. This is indeed a true Vaishnavite quality. He has a better chance of reaching The Lord's Abode Vaikuntham than many devoted Vaishnavites who wouldn't move a little finger to help a suffering person.

Explanation for the 18 names of Maha Vishnu given atop:

1.Kamal- Vishnu is called Kamal because- His face is always a fresh blossomed Lotus-His eyes are pink like Lotus petals- He sprouted Lotus from His navel on which Brahma was born-His palm is like a Lotus bud when He blesses- And His Feet are Pinkish and soft like Lotus too
2.KuttaiKamal- is Vamana- when He went for alms to meet Bali and get land He could measure by taking three steps.
3.NettaiKamal-is Vikrama-when He measured the three worlds immediately after receiving the boons...
4.ulakanaayagan- is Varahamurthy-When he retrieved Earth from the bottom of the water body and re-placed Her on Her orbit---And He married Her too...So He is ULAGANAYAKAN.... Earth's Husband and Hero....
5.shrikamalahaassan--Kamal-already explained-Hassan-is Urdu word-which means-Good Looking one---The Lord is indeed good looking and therefore very apt....
6.Aboorvasakotharan---As Vishnu AdhiSHeSha is His brother-- the Lord being a brother to a snake is a rare thing---Hence He is Abhoorva Sakotharan
7.Askaar Naayakan-- In Bhagavath Gita Arjuna was full of questions- So in Tamil we can name him as kelviyaar--When Tamil Kelvi is replaced by English Ask-- Arjuna becomes Aaskaar--And by answering all the questions and scoring a cent percent- ShriKrishna becomes AaskaarNayagan- A Hero in handling people with full of questions
8.MaruthaNaayakan--Marutha is agricultural land--ShriRanganathar is well settled amidst two branches of Kaveri-which is an agricultural land--Hence MaruthaNayagan--Lord of the agricultural land---
9.ShriVishwaroopan--ShriKrishna-Who showed Vishwaroopam to Arjuna in The Gita
10.punnagaimannan- The Lord's Smile has been celebrated by all devotional poets as the most beautiful and mesmerising--All of them have unanimously given verdict saying that-- One who sees the Lord's smile--therafter decide to be His slave and are ready to do anything to be His slave therafter--So The Lord, is punnagaiMannan in two ways--He is the King of smiles and also He rules only by blossoming a mesmerising smile
11.sakalakalavallavan--The Lord is an expert in all fields of art--ShriKrishna's Flute is very famous--But Lord Rama was also an expert in all sorts of musical intruments--and also in various other arts such as drawing-warfare-archery-administration-martialarts--etc...etc...There was nothing that Lord Rama did not know...Shri Krishna too
12.Sathya--ShriRama--When Lakshman wanted to add weightage to His arrow that He shot to kill Indrajeeth--He said-'if it is true that my brother has always spoken only the truth, then may Indrajeeth's head be cut off by this arrow'- and it did--Indrajeeth's head fell on the ground---That's the power of Lord Rama's Honesty---
13.ShriPanchaThanthiran--The Lord uses five steps in handling the wrong-doers---Sama,bera,betha,thanda and thagutithatham--Sama is explaining the mistake-Beram-Making offers to end the mistake- Betham is warning-Thantam is kicking--Thagutithatham is tricking--the last will be used anytime after understanding the issue...
14.Naayagan--Hero-The Lord is the only Hero for the wise--For others--He is the Hero of Vishnu Purana-Ramayana-Bhagavatham--Mahabharatham---VarahaPUranam--etc etc.,
15.DevarMagan---ShriKrishna was VasuDeva's Son-- So He is VasuDevarMagan alias DevarMagan....
16.Vikram--Original name of NettaiKamal--When He measured the worlds with three steps---Vikram means one with immeasurable potential
17.Indian--Even DK people are asking-- how come your Lord always Incarnates in India?---So the answer could be that He is a patriotic Indian...Jokes apart--Historians say all continents were in the beginning one huge continent and it got shattered later--The Lord Incarnated in different places of the land-- as people worshiped Him in these places their cultures became very similar and therefore they are now collectively called as Indians...
18.ShriAlavanthaan--Lord Rama came down to earth to Rule The Earth--So He is Aalavanthaan...

வேதவாணர் கீதவேள்வி நீதியான கேள்வியார்
நீதியால் வணங்குகின்ற நீர்மை நின்கண் நின்றதே!

These two lines from Thirumazhisai Aazhwaars...Thiruchantha Virutham... Substantiates the title...'Aaskaar Nayagan' for our Lord....

Veda Vaanar--Experts of Vedas....
Gita Velvi--Increasing knowledge by asking questions...
Neethiyaana Kelviyaar-- people who ask the justifiable questions....
Neethiyaal vanankukinra---Showing Revence to some one bec they found him good after judging Him....
neermai ninkan ninrathae---Such quality is found in you.....

Experts of Vedas who increase their knowledge by asking questions ask justifiable questions and judge you. And then they bow to you with reverence because they realise you are a just person and it is justice, or the right thing, to bow to you...This quality is well established in you! Oh Lord!

Lakshman had never left the side of Shri Rama since infancy. So Lakshman has been a very honest person all his life. Yet Lakshman did not try to strenghten the arrow's power with his honesty...and preferred to strengthen the arrow with His brother's Honesty....This was because....Lakshman had once said His dad was bad for sending Rama to the forest....And also about Bharatha, that Bharatha intended to kill Rama..These were actually wrong...Therefore, Lakshmana had utter false statements and his words lost the power of Honesty....This shows how SathyaViratham/Vow of Honesty works and empowers our word....

This also shows How perfectly Lord Rama stuck to His vow of Honesty....He did not utter a lie consciously... nor did He say things...without ensuring that they were true.....Jai Shri Sathya Ram! Jai Jai Shri Sathya Ram!!
