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.

Brimming Space.


Where ever I go...
When ever, I look for....
I see you!

There is no where you are not...

Between the mountains...
As mighty as them!
Between the atoms...
As tiny as them!

Between the trees...
In a forest!
Between the branches...
In a tree!

Upto the sky 
And above that too...
Down to the earth 
And even below...

You fill the cosmos...
Like water in a pot!
You fill the places...
Where air is not!

All the planets roam in you...
Mighty galaxies stand in queue...

I close my eyes...
There you are!
I open my eyes...
There you are!

In me... 
You are!
In you...
I am!

When I open the door...
Between me and the door!
When I enter the room...
In the entire room!

When I sit in a theatre...
Between me and the screen!
When the drama unfolds...
Into it too!

Darkness and Light...
Are your mistress and wife!
For, you always hide
your mistress from your wife!
For, they are eternal enemies!
For, there is no time 
you're seen with both of them!
And there is no time 
you're seen with neither of them!

And yet, you are... 
The most peaceful!
The only one who is never shaken…
The only one who is never impure…
The only one who never subdues…
The only one who never conquers…

I salute you…
Oh, wondrous one…
May I be like you…

Omnipresent
yet unnoticed...
Encompassing all
Yet undisturbed!
Gigantic
Yet harmless!
Bound by none
Binding none…
Never guarded
Yet invulnerable…
Always at rest
Yet the most vital…
All Knowing...
Yet ever silent!

You are my friend!
Dearest one!
In you I find peace!
In you I seek solace!
In you I draw inspiration!
With wide-eyed admiration!

I worship you...
Oh, delightful one…
May the ‘you’ in me expand...
And merge with you…
Dissolving me..!

The Vedas, Sâstras and Purânas, describe God as sarva-vyapi and sarva-bhuthantar-âtmâ, that is, as present everywhere and the inner reality in every being.You have beautifully brought out in your inimitable way the essence of Godhead and your yearning to realise Him.
Thanks
