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.

Sugar to the Soul.

Of all the names, I've ever heard
Of all the names, I've ever uttered
Your name, my Lord, is a sugar to my soul
It makes me feel complete and whole

Everytime I utter your name
My turbulent mind becomes tame
Heals me off my wounds and pain
How do I express the joy I gain?

Like a chocolate that melts on the tongue
My heart does melt when your name is sung
Like the sweetness that spreads from the sweet
My hearts pumps bliss at every beat

Shiva Himself cherishes it
Mighty Hanuman lives by it
Mystic Kabir was drunk with it
Gandhi Mahathma relished it

Wonderful devotees you've always had
Delight to the good, terror to the bad
On goodness' head you are the crown
Your devotees are gems that you adorn

I too want to be one of them
On your jewels, a tiny gem
I always want to chant your name
Forgetting health, wealth, money and fame

The tastiest of all is your name
The mightiest of all is your name
The beautiest of all is your name
Cherishable of all is your name

The day I found joy in chanting it
I realised what is contentment
There is nothing else that makes me yearn
There is nothing more I want to learn

I always want to chant your name
And live a life that spreads your fame
Take from me anything you want
And make me more eager to chant

I will always chant your name with joy
Like I called my mother as a boy
For your name, my lord, is a sugar to my soul
It makes me feel complete and whole.

Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram
Om Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram
Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram
Om Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram!

Baiyu said...

Dear Ramesh,
I felt a feeling of bliss when i went thro' your poem "Sugar to the Soul"just a little while ago.I only wish to add to conclude-----
"Call Him Rama, Call Him Jesus
Call Him what you like
Justice is what He gives
To One And All alike."
Well written Keep it up.
Incidentally I was out of touch with your writings since last two months or so due to other preoccupations.Now that I have come back to normal you can expect more regular comments from me from now on. Baiyu

shri ramesh sadasivam said...

"Call Him Rama, Call Him Jesus

Thanks for your contribution sir.

This is lovely & I have no words to express my feeling.

I liked the following a lot:
''I too want to be one of them
On your jewels, a tiny gem
I always want to chant your name
Forgetting health, wealth, money and fame''

I remembered Hanuman once I read this.Because I always pray him to accept me as either his footwear or toe ring.I wanna be like that with him & forget everything.

shri ramesh sadasivam said...

Dear Niru,

Thanks for ur comment. I know how u would have felt while praying like that. Thanks for sharing that prayer here.
