Invisible Rama Kills Visible Vaali Enacted in Sculpture

In Hindusim on October 28, 2014 at 12:39

Lord Rama killed Vaali,who was fighting his brother Sugreeva,by hiding behind a Tree.

 

Vaali and Sugreeva were visible to Him , but not Rama to Vaali or Sugreeva.

 

This is the description by Valmiki in the Ramayana.

 

Can one recreate this on Stone exactly as described by Valmiki?

 

Yes this Sculpture is in Darasuram, Irawadheswarar Temple near Kumbakonam.

 

One can not see Rama from the pillar where His sculpture is, the pillar where the Sculpture of Vaali and Sugreeva are fighting.

 

But from the pillar where Rama’s sculpture is the fighting of Valli and Sugreeva are visible.

 

The sculptures are so vivid in detail one can see the Bows strings .

Rama Pattabhisheka Pitru Welfare Happiness Children Valmiki

In Hinduism on September 12, 2014 at 11:05

People are aware of the benefits of reciting the Sundara Kanda of Ramayana.

 

Rama Pattbhisheka grants  good results,declares Valmiki.

 

 

Reciting the Pattabhisheka Sarga on seven or nine days will yield very good results.

 

Naivedyam.

 

Panaka,Neermor,Vada and Sakkarai Pongal.

 

Other procedures as explained in my post Procedures for Sundara Kanda Parayana.

 

 

What are the beneficial results by Rama Pattabhisheka Parayana.

 

On hearing the narrative of his coronation in this world, a person seeking for,

 

sons gets sons.

 

for wealth, gets the riches.

 

A king conquers the earth and overcomes his enemiesven as Kausalya, the mother has Rama as her living son, or as Sumitra has Lakshmana or as Kaikeyi has Bharata, the women likewise can become mothers of living sons, endowed with children as well as grand children and thus become happy forever.

 

a person gets longevity to life. He or she, who hears with attention and with a subdued anger, this poetic composition done by Valmiki long ago, that person overcomes the difficulties.

Whoever hears this poetical composition written by Valmiki long ago, they at the conclusion of their absence from home, meet their relatives and get rejoiced. They get all the boons, entreated from Rama.

All the gods get pleased with those who carefully listen to it.

Whoever carefully listens to the epic in his house, all obstacles come to an end. A king conquers the earth. A person staying away from home, fares well. On hearing the epic, the menstruating women give birth to excellent sons. The adorer and the reader of this ancient epic gets relieved of all sins and obtains longer life.

The epic is to be listened by warrior-class, after offering their salutation with their heads bent low, from brahmins every day regularly.

There is no doubt that the listener and the reader of this entire Ramayana will get lordship and the birth of a son.

Rama gets forever pleased with him who listens to or reads Ramayana daily.

He is indeed the eternal Vishnu, the Lord of preservation.

Rama is the primordial Lord, clearly placed before the eyes the powerful Lord removing the sins and the great-armed; who has abode on waters (of the ocean of milk) Sesha (the serpent-god forming his couch is said to be Lakshmana.

Tell this epic which occurred long ago in this manner, to those who ask for it, fearlessly. Let there be happiness to you! Let the strength of Vishnu increase! By studying and listening to this epic, all the gods get appeased. By listening to this Ramayana, the forefathers forever get pleased.

To those persons who transcribe with devotion this collection of poems depicting the story of Rama residence in heaven is assured

By listening to this highly meaningful and auspicious poetical composition, a person gets family-prosperity, augmentation in money and grain, superior women, exquisite happiness and all the acquisition of wealth on this earth.

This narrative is to be listened invariably by good people, seeking for wisdom, longevity, health, fame, fraternity, intelligence, welfare and brilliance.

Ramayana Sundara Kanda Navaha Slokas Video,Benefits

In Hinduism on September 11, 2014 at 11:59

I had posted an article on  the procedure to be followed in Sundarakanda Parayana.

 

I deliberately left the Navaha in the article.

 

 

That is reciting the Sundara Kanda 68 Chapters in Nine Days.

 

Reason is that the Navaha is most effective and I wanted to post an artilce on this.

 

There are 68 chapters in the Sundarakanda.

 

And Rama Pattabhisheka from Yuddha Kanda is to be recited on the concluding day.

 

So for Nine days it totals to 69 chapters.

 

Recite Eight chapters a Day or Seven days.

 

On the Eighth Day , Six Chapters.

 

On the Ninth, concluding day , recite the balance Seven chapters.

 

Begin with Parayana Slokas before Sundara Kanda.

 

Smarthas may follow Smartha Sampradaya Parayana  Slokas and Sri Vaishnavas, Vaishnava Smpradaya Slokas.

 

Follow the other procedures as mentioned in my earlier post.

 

Link is provided here, which also details the Naivedya to be offered.

 

Benefits of reading Sundara Kanda.

 

  • Salvation can be achieved by reading the first chapter daily for six months.
  • Effect of attack of devils, ghosts, spirits can be warded off by reading 3rd chapter.
  • To get rid of dullness of brain, read 13th chapter
  • To get rid of the sin of having affair with some one else’s wife, read chapters 7-11.
  • To get permanent wealth and happiness read chapter 15.
  • To get rid of bad dreams read Chapter 27.
  • To get good behavior read chapter 20-21.
  • To rejoin with lost relatives read chapters 33-40.
  • To get rid of impending danger read chapter 36.
  • To get pardon from god for insult done to him knowingly and unknowingly read chapter 38.
  • Read chapters 42-47 to win over enemies
  • To become just and charitable read chapter 51
  • For improvement of assets like house, land etc read chapter 54.
  • To get peace and happiness read Chapter 61
  • To get perennial happiness and to attain God read chapter 67.
  • To get what one wishes read chapter 41
  • To realize God and to become one capable of sweet words read chapter 19.

The Navaha delivers all the results one desires.

 

 

Rama With Four Arms Conch Sudarshan Chakra

In Hinduism on September 7, 2014 at 17:59

It is rare to find Lord Rama with four arms and Chank and Chakra.(Conch and Discus)

 

One Temple is in Bhadrachalam,Andhra Pradesh,India.

 

 

Rama is an Avatar where he was not conscious that he was the Avatar of Vishnu whereas In Krishna Avatar He was aware all the while.

 

There is a Temple Ponpadhar Koodam, a small village at about 10 kms east of Chengalpattu, just further to PV Kalathur.

 

Sri Raama is seen here with Sri Sita Devi, Sri Lakshmana on the sides and Sri Hanuman in front of them.

 

Hanuman is in front of Sri Rama,seen in a very humble gesture facing Sri Rama with His palm closing the mouth in obedience.

 

This Hanuman  is called Sri Bhavya Aanjaneyar.

 

“यत्र यत्र रघुनाथकीर्तनं तत्र तत्र कृतमस्तकांजलिम्
वाष्पवारिपरिपूर्णालोचनं मारुतिं नमत राक्षसान्तकम्
Yatra Yatra Raghunaatha-Kiirtanam Tatra Tatra Krta-Mastaka-Anjalim
Vaasspa-Vaari-Paripuurnnaa-Locanam Maarutim Namata Raakssasa-Antakam ||

Meaning:
1: Wherever the Glories of Raghunatha are Sung, there, with Hands held over His Bowed Head in Salutation, …
2: … and Eyes Filled with Tears, Maruti (Bhakta Hanuman) is Present; I Salute Maruti Who puts an End to the Rakshasas.”

 

Once in 1982, Pattaabhishekam was performed to Sri Rama here.

 

When the rituals were happening, a monkey had visited the temple sat quietly and had witnessed the whole ceremony and had left the place after the Pattaabhhishekam, without disturbing anyone.

According to the native villagers, there were no monkeys present in the village before and after this incident.

But no one knows how a lone monkey arrived at the temple exactly for the Pattaabhishekam ceremony.

The villagers believe that it was Sri Hanuman Himself, who came and witnessed Sri Rama Pattabhishekam.

 

How to reach.

 

Ponpadhar Koodam can be reached from Chengalpattu by Road, Buses, autos available.

 

Chengalpattu is 57 km by Road, by Train 31 km

 

Buses and Suburban Trains are available.
