Hitherto Unknown Secrets !

Archive for the ‘ramayana’ Category


Mahasagar seeing Hanuman fly inspired Mainak, who was drowned in the sagar, “O, Mainak, rise up and do the seva of Rama doota, ask him for taking rest on your peaks ”

Mainak parvat rose in the ocean and asked Hanuman, “Oh! Veera kindly take some rest on me and eat fresh sweet fruits.”

Hanumanta embraced the golden peak, and there was pushpa-vrishti (shower of flowers) from devatas as even when there was scope for rest and some enjoyment, Vayudeva rejected it and concentrated on Raam Karya only [we do get sukh intermittently in life but life is about sadhana, if sukha becomes a hindrance to sadhana that that sukha should be rejected].

Devndra Indra applauded Mainak, “I am happy with you Mainak, you have done Raam seva and thus, I give you Abhaya-protection.”

Just because Mainak served Hanuman he got preeti of Indra that too without asking. Vayudeva seva will give preeti of all devats they will bless unasked and give phala. Indra immediately came and said all by himself, when Mainak was actually hiding in ocean by from the fear of Indra. The prelude to this unasked blessing from Indra is the story where Indra had cut wings of all mountains, but, Mainak had escaped that. But by offering seva to Hanuman instantly, a major problem of Mainak got solved.

For many years Mainak was afraid of Indra and never came up due to that fear. Mainak Parvati Devi’s brother, shyala (brother in law) for Rudra, even Shiva could not help. Mainka was in dayniya parishthithi (miserable situation), he was hiding obscure from world. This bad karma of Mainak also got washed away [without thinking about it] and he was given relief.

When one does very high order punya, its effect is seen immediately [one does not have to wait till nexd janmas to get its fruits] and Vayudeva’s seva is Atyutkat Punay- punya of highest order, it immediately gives results, sheeghra phal dayak- gives desired instantly [even if you have not intended for it in seva sankalpa].

The immediate problem at hand gets solved if one does Hanumat seva. even if elders [whom we fear] are not happy and we feel uncomfortable, Hanumat seva solves those issues without having to think about it or struggle to find solution for it.

At times we face very bad days, destiny goes against us, nobody helps us, even our own relatives express inability, and finally, we resign to fate and say to ourselves, “homa japa are not giving any phal, do they give instant result, all karmas give phala in next janma, now I am asking for job, money, these homas etc. What is the use if they give good job in next janma? What use is it if I am born wealthy in some other janma? Will my problem get solved now? Is there a WAY?”


Some thoughts that can occur in one’s mind- Does Vayudev listen to our request? He is a busy soul and I am alpa jeevi, should I be praying directly to .. HANUMAN, even when I know is ever busy with important assignments assigned by the Lord. This doubt can be cleared by the following instance-

Hanuman asked Mainak, “what is your problem? Why are you staying in the ocean like this? Look at the karuna of atyant dayalu Vayudeva he did ignore Mainak by saying, I am busy here, as I have a very important work to do, even though he was on Raama Karya, what could be more important than that- Samudra Langhan was the highest mission of Hanuman’s life, yet he kept an open mind, enquired the kushal mangal of Mainak, observed his vyatah and addressed it. That is an utmost SATTVIK laxan.

A satvik Guru always addresses the difficulties of one who approach them, even if one has NOT ASKED for that.

In today’s world, even ordinarily successful person would forget about problems of others and be busy in show of their so-called success. They, when asked for help, will repeatedly say, “I don’t have time; I have to catch next flight; can we discuss this later? Okay, two minutes, can you sum up your problems? Your two minutes are over, next time gentleman you have just wasted my time- all these are durlaxanas. Giving an ear to needy is must but most SATTVIK does not even

give ear he asks [however busy he may be] never fails to enquire the trouble and difficulties and addresses them.

When a request is made to anyone whom we love, but that person feels people that he is being flocked because he is great what does he do- he rejects the love and the request that is made due to that love.

But Vayudeva is not like that, even in his busiest moment [even in the middle of an important work such as Rama-Karya] he asked Mainak, “why are you in the ocean?” And when Mainak offered service (seva), he EMBRACED him not disappoint him, because a Sattvika soul does not show constraints or contempt, he simply obliges. He finds ways and means to oblige. He is attentive because he intends to oblige, he doesn’t feign a busy schedule.

We all have constraints, but when faced with acute constraints some abhyagat is before us we will say, I want to help, but my hands are tied. Sorry, I cannot do anything at this moment but friend I sympathize. God is great,” such words are empty words. They show denial, they hurt. Sattvika people do not use these words; they assist others in finding solutions, by being with them, and not leaving them half way.

Hanuman embraced Mainak, and saw to it that Indra comes to Mainak and gives him abhaya. For a small gesture a SATTVIK gives back in mountainous amounts. What a Sattvika did even if MAINAK was disturbance in work, he (HANUMAN) did not scold him, and he helped. Hanuman is our person in charge and he is very dayalu, he doesn’t allow us to open our mouths, he himself asks, “yes any problem? Why are you looking dull today?”

Some people, who like to show their power and busyness need a following so that their egos are continuously satiated, but Hanuman did not ask Mainak to follow him, he waited saw his plight, asked him his kushal-mangal and also embraced him [all the while explaining what is the importance of Raam karya, why rest is not needed, as he is not tired] etcetera. So much indulgence our boss shows in those who offer him service.

In our lives we keep false hope on people and run after to appease them for a favor- job, interview, position, etcetera], but that favor from a mere human becomes a far-fetched idea.

But our boss (Hanuman) is not like that, he sees your preparation, your problems, appreciates your intentions, and awards you immediately. One must serve those people where results are immediate, why serve the ONE who doesn’t even know what’s their capacity?

I have written with my alpamati what little I have understood. But each incident in Ramayan one can dwell for years- that’s what Narayna Panditacharya says!

So, without any worry just do Hanumat Seva!


Ravan Sanatkumar Samvaad !

Once Ravan with folded hands and extreme devotion and politeness asked in solitude  Son of BRAMHA ,SAGE SANATKUMAR  – “OH Sage ! who is supreme  most among devatas ? Who is the one , taking the shelter of whom devtas always win over their enemies in war ? Whom do the dwijas worship always  ? Whom do the Yogis meditate UPON ? Oh benevolent one ! kindly answer my questions as you know everything ! .”

Sanatkumar through his divine sight[ yogadruk ] , found out the real intention of RAVANA behind these questions and then said -” Oh son RAVAN ! Listen as I give answer to your questions . One who regulates this UNiverse and sustains it always , one who does not have death and birth , one who is worshipped by both devtas and asuras That imperishable supreme being is HARI NARAYANA .. He is the one from whose navel was born BRAMHA He is the creator of this animate and inanimate world  , taking shelter of HIM al the devatas always win over their enemies in war . Yogis meditate on NARAYANA and dwijas engage in his japa …”

Having listened to Mahrshi’s words , RAVANA again said thus ” Daitya danav always get killed by VISHNU , what happens to these daityas where do they go and what do they achieve ?”

Sanatkumar rishi continues -” those who are killed by other Devatas , they go to the best of  Swarga heaven and after sometime they fall down to earth and according to their previous life’s good and bad deeds they attain births and deaths continuously . BUT those who die in the hands of VISHNU get their ultimate gati as ordained by HARI ”

RAVAN with a happy disposition in mind thought for a moment and decided so I shall fight with HARI then . GUAGING the mind of RAVANA , Sanatkumar rishi proclaimed ” oh RAVAN your wish will be fulfilled ! you wait for some more time and enjoy ”

HAving said so SAGE continued ” HEy RAVAN ! LORD VISHNU exists everywere , he is omnipotent , he is flowing as river in rivers , he is standing as dense forest among forests .. he is manifested everywhere in all shapes and sizes ..HE is in OMkara , truth , savitri , prithvi , and the He is in SHESHA the one wo is hodling this entire universe ” HE is as devatas among devatas , He is the kAALA , he is the MOON and SUN as present in them , He causes SUNRISE SUNSET day night , HE is in VAYU , he is in fire agni , HE is in INDRA , He is in YAMA , he is parjana , vasus , … Bramha Rudra and all devatas owe to their existence to HIM ,, He causes lighting hesports in all this creation ,and also protects it ..He is present everywhere in all creation and sustains it .. He is  of bluish in color and that too of hue that of lightning  and  wears a  peetambar , Like a golden [ of jambunad fame ] jewellery , MAHALAKSHMI is adorning his chest and she is embracing looking at him with awe …

LORD VISHNU  cannot be seen by any daitya danav devata or nag etc ..ONLY those whom he graces [ yasya prasaadam kurute sa chainam drashtum arhati ] ,those with whom he is pleased only those can see him by his grace alone ..

YAGNYA tapasya , daan or ADHYAYAN  or any other means does not qualify to be eligible to see HIM ..Only his devotees who with single mind  ever engage in his thoughts through unmixed VEDANTA [ unmixed with dirt of doubts ] , whose vision is totally pure and cleansed [ which has become malaheena -amala drushti  ] with vedanta vichaara Only they can see LORD NARAYANA ! ”

SAge continues .. -‘RAVAN ! now if you want to have his vision easily without any such difficult means , Then in TRETAYUGA , for the welfare of devatas and humans , LORD is taking avatara in IKSHVAKU  lineage as the best of EMPERORS , as the SOn of DASAHRATH b name RAAMa !!!! He will leave for forest along with his brother and wife to uPHOLD the words of his Father . He will wander in DANDAKARANYA along with his wife SEETA who is [maya herself ] …I have told all these to you in details RAVAN ,now worship LORDRAAM along with his consort with continuous devotion[” bhajasva bhaktibhaven sada RAAMAm SHRIYA yutam “ ] ”

thats the advice SANATKUMAR gives to RAVAN to fulfil his desire of having VISion of LORD RAM in his heart

AGASTYA MUNI says to LORD RAAM ” thus having listened to SAge sanatkumar oh LORD RAM ! Ravan  went into introspection and contemplated thus , I shall make opposition with allthe devatas in the universe and LORD RAM will then oppose me. Ravan having decided so ,became very happy at the possibility of fulfilling his wish

RAVAN thus went on war spree so that he would get a chance to oppose SHRI RAM and then to get KILLED by RAAM , the wise RAVAN  abducted  JAGANMATA devi JANAKI ”

One who listens to this katha , or reads it or gives a discourse to others who are interested , he shall attain longevity , freedom from diseases , health and infinite prosperity happiness , he will gain his wishes and make extreme profits and his wealth will never decrease but  will keep  ever increasing


RAMAYANA- Shwetaraaj charitra !

ShriRAMA after reining Ayodhya for 13000 years once  visited Agastyashram . [ This is after killing Shambuka ] .

Agastyamuni who is born out of pitcher is known as  Kumbhasambhava  . Immediately rose from his seat on seeing LORD RAAMA and offered his prayers .And after prayers offered one beautiful  MAALA [ garland ] which was clean and crystal clear and very pleasing to the mind –  nirmala amalina malaa . With devotion Agastya muni says ”

HEY RAAM ! This garland has been given to me by KING SHWETA to be offered at your LOTUS feet .

Once while Agastya muni saw a  dead body in the midst of the jungle . After sometime SAGE saw a very bright divine aircraft  descending from the heavens .From the PLANE alighted a Luminous KINGLY personality . The KING in divine heavenly form descended from the PLANE and started eating the flesh of the dead body . Looking at the ghastly sight .. Sage AGASTYA asked OH divine King who are You ? why are you performing this dastardly act . what besieges you to eat a dead mans’ flesh . You do not seem to be a demon or demonic creature either .. and you are descending from heaven so you must have done only good deeds in previous birth as you have reached heaven .. then why this evil has befallen you ?

The KING said ” Oh salutation to you Oh Sage Agastya ! its my good fortune and end of bad karma that I have had a holy sight of divine person like yourselves .. Now my miseries have ended … ! Listen Oh pious Bramhin rishi … I am king Shweta .

I was doing tapasya [ penace ] in this region known as Dandakaranya . This region was ruled by a KIng named DANDA . it was once a beautiful KINGDOM full of palaces and streets . Once Danda was infatuated with the daughter if SHUKRACHARYA . For this Shukracharya the guru of demons cursed him and his kingdom to become a uninhabited dense Forest . [ ie king became daridra for having lusted guru’s daughter  ] and this place came to be known as DANDAKARANYA .

KING Shweta had done many tapasya and conducted many vratas , yagnyas . BUT after completing the VRATAS NIYAMA YAGNYA etc ,, KING did not do nay bramhana BHOJANA .. so all his yagnyas became anannayagnya . Because the yagnyas he did get Swarga  but there he could not  eat any food for himself .. All sort of food abhorred him … He was dissatisfied  even in HEAVEN among apasaras and all sorts of enjoyments but Hunger troubled him a lot and all the food available could not be eaten by him … SO unable to bear hunger He asked BRAMHA as to why this evil had befallen him . BRAMHA devaru said .. as he had not given for Bramhana bhojana and annadana after yagnyas …He will be dissatisfied even though he got heaven for his karma , he  will not be able to eat heavenly food . SO king asked where to seek satisfaction from hunger .. He said his heavenly body still in the DANDAKARANYA and he has no option but to eat his own flesh there to find satisfaction ..

Unable to bear this bad situation .. KING shweta pleaded BRAMH deva to relieve him off his pain .. and give him some remedy for his FOLLY ..

BRAMHA ji  took pity on him and said .. Oh KIng SHWETA .. take this garland .. and give it to SAGE AGASTYA to offer this LORD RAAMA .. THis will relieve you from this evil state .

saying so King Shweta offered with devotion a divine garland to Sage AGASTYA .. and the dead body disappeared .. and again KING Shweta went to heaven peacefully in the divine plane .

SAGE AGASTYA offered the GARLAND to LORD RAAMA narrating this incident.

note – why did BRAMHAji not ask KING shweta to offer garland directly to LORD RAAMA .. ?

ans – KIng’s problem was only to get relieved from the state of hunger .. Offering garland to RAAMA would have resulted in much more punya , which KING was not seeking .and was not eligible either … Thus BRAMHAJI asked KING to give garland to sage AGASTYA and it was Sage AGASTYA who offered GArland to RAAMA and became eligible for complete Punya arising out of such offering …

special point to be noted – OFFERING GARLAND TO LORD RESULTS IN OBTAINING ANNA FOOD [ this is a great secret ] ..

“devaay maalarpaNena analabho bhavatiti paramarahasyam ” – poojakalapalata grantham

Thus while narrating this story SUN set in the west and SO LORD RAAMA spent the night among the sages in the ashram .

NEXT day LORD RAAMA said ” punaste darshanam BHUYAAT ” .. to agastya muni that “We shall meet again .Oh Sage you are the one who cleanse the men off their sins and make them pure ” .. sage burst into tears and said ” Oh RAAM ! by constant remembrance of  lotus feet I HAVE BECOME CLEANSED myself  ! You are the very GOD Oh RAAM ! just by listening to your name , remembering your avataras and singing your praises , even those who have sinned with mahapatakas ie unpardonable sins also get purified cleansed and respected devout ”

LORD RAAMA with a soft smile looking at the SAGE boarded the PUSHPAK VIMANA and reached AYODHYA .. and then asked PUSHPAK to return whenever called for .. Having said that PUSHPAK automatically left for KUBERA’s place . on a autopilot mode .

THEN LORD SRIRAAMA invited BHARAT AND LAKSHMAN to his palace and decided to do a YAGNYA .. LAKSHMAN suggested ASHWAMEDHA YAGNYA ! .

SHREE SEETAARAM STOTRA – for happy married life !

श्रीगुरुभ्यो नमः

नमो नमो रामा देवो ।त्तमांजनेय प्रेमा । क्षमापश्रितजनसमूह कल्प । द्रुमापराध क्षमापनम कुरू ॥ अजात नररूप रघुजाम् । जजाप्त कुलदीप ॥ अजेश भुजगाद्विजेंद्र मुखसुर ।व्रजाधिपति हरे गजेंद्रवरद ॥ अयोध्यापूरि निलया नित्याऽ-।वियोगिनि प्रिया ॥ दयाप अस्मदभयापहर  रुषि । सुयाग रक्षक त्रयिमयात्मा ॥ सनातन सुमित्रा दशश्यम् – । दनाख्य नृप पुत्रा ॥ अनादिमंगल सुनाम चरिता ॥ घनाशनभिनव जनार्दनविठ्ठल ॥

All those can recite this stotra daily with shuchi ….. and most importantly anusandha should be

seeta raama nityavayogini priya ……

SEETA RAAMA are never separated … RAMAYANA is for daitya mohana …. SEETADEVI always resides in the heart of RAAMA as Srivatsa mole .. she is never separated from her husband ….. neither was actual seeta at RAVANA’s ashoka vatika … it was seetakruti led by INDRA .. RAAMA never missed SEETA ..  RAAMA looking for Seeta in RAMAYANA is Lokvidamban ……

LORD RAAMA gives instant results … he gives all the desired to his devotees and his name is RAAMA …. one who attracts everyones and grants all his wishes to his fullest satisfaction and then seats permanently in their heart ,….

LORD RAAMA , as He is in our hearts similarly  HE is also present in others heart … RAAMA in our heart is no different than RAAMA in our spouse’s heart ,,,,  so if RAAMA in our heart is pleased with us  , so also the RAAMA in our spouse’s heart is pleased ,… thus when RAAMA in our heart is pleased with someone standing before us … we have a benign charm on them …. we think positively about the person and so also the other person responds favourably [ one need not ask a mortal spouse for our happiness when RAAMA does everything for us ] …. As RAAMA is especially a MODAMOORTY , he causes immense pleasure ….  RAAMA means one who gives bliss  happiness and creative sporting joy …  when he decides to shower his grace .. one finds heaven in his house …..

So oh HANUMADANTARGAT SEETA  RAAMA  be pleased with me !

With this anusandhana if one reads this stotra ,will get all his marital issues solved ….


ArdhaikVimshopaka – Marriage Muhurta & SEETARAAMAKALYANA

  • What is the importance of VIVAHA muhurta ?
  • Why should a marriage be solemnised on a good auspicious time ?
  •  If man and woman and their married life is prewritten or predestined , then why people run helter skelter to PANDITS to get a muhurta !
  •  WHy one cannot marry as they wish at whaterver convenient time in a day or night on  a convenient SUNDAY where all the relatives and friends can attend the marriage without having to take a LEAVE from office .

Marriage is about getting a good wife . Who is a good wife , Shubh sheel sanyukta is what is called as good wife . Why it is required ? because it is then TRIVARGAkaranam ! what is that ?

dharma arth kaam are trivarga , this can be obtained only through a wife who is shubh and sheel sampanna . What makes a  marraige shubha sheela sanyukta ?

The vivaha lagna is largely responsible for subh svabhava and sheel and materialisation of trivarga sadhana .

And also the quality of progeny and their behaviour is also subjective to vivaha muhurta .

How should be a VIVAHA fixed ?

usually parents get a horoscope and and they refer to a pandit or if they are astro savvy , use software to know if the nakshatra are matching and then declare yes marriage would be good or bad as the case may be .

a PANDIT may at the most see additionaly the chart for  a possible manglik kuja dosha and reject or accept a horoscope for a yejamana , once a accepted then family bursts into happiness and a muhurta is chosen as per convenience ,  oh my daughter has no leave , uncle cannot come in may ,my best friend has to attend two more weddings on that day ,  all the bujjis have exams , groom wants to leave for offshore assignment , choultry is not available . PANDITJI give a convenient date ! Least people are bothered about importance of muhurta and whether it matches vadhu and vara for a long happy journey .

So what should be the right procedure ?

as soon as the horoscope probable comes , take it to a good astrologer with ratna vastra phala tamboola and dakshina . after paying respects to the astrologer , ask him a prashna , that daivagnya we have recieved the horoscope of  prospective groom and will it be suitable  for the groom or bride .

After seeing preliminary nakshatra etc … Astrologer in a good frame of mind should see the prashna chart .

if moon is in 10 , 11 , 3, 7 , 5 from ascedant lagna and if jupiter aspects this moon , then immediately the marraige will be fixed with said groom or bride .

if lagna is vrishabha tula or karka with benefics in it or aspected by benefics , even then marraige will take place .

if the question is from a girl asking ” panditji will I marry the person of my choice ?”

then if venus and moon are in odd signs in BHA AMSHA and if strong planet aspects the lagna or if lagna lord with strength aspects the moon . then girl will get the desired groom .

if the same question is from a boy then moon and venus should be in even signs in BHA amsha .

When the question is o behalf of girl , then in prashna moon should not be in 6 or 8th from asc ; mars planet should not be in seventh  or eighth , this would bring end within 8 years of marraige .

when a question is on behalf of boy , 5th house must be inspected especially during prashna , if it contains malefic , and if that is aspected by enemy and or is debilitated in fifth , the marraige will be trouble owing to misconduct of the girl . [ such a match should be avoided ]

if only fifth is afflicted then dead children will be born .

even if moon is exalted and in  own house in 6th or 8th , if aspected by inauspicious planets , engagement or marriage breaks .  

if such yogas are found and still couples insist on marraige then , girl should resort to savitri vrata or pippalavadh etc remedies should be undertaken and then given to a good longevity groom .

When looking  for bride , on nakshtras , uttarashadha , svati , shravana , purvaphalguni , poorvashadha , purvabhadra , anuradha , dhanishtha , krittika , after giving good dresses and fruits and gifts when girl is happy , she should be proposed for a marraige , such a marriage lasts longer .

when looking for  a boy , girls brother along with  a bramhin   and purohit on a auspicious day , with yagnyopaveet flowers ,sweet fruits and dresses , go to the groom on dhruv nakshtras , krittika purvaphalguni , poorvashadha and poorvabhadra and fix engagement or marraige date . [ such a act will not give shocks of negative behaviour from grooms ]

Boys should marry in odd years of their age , and girls in even years of age . girl should have guru bala and boy should have ravi bala . BOTH should have chandrabala on marraige day .

  • VISHAKHA nakshatra pada 1 2 3 girl will bring auspicious results to the younger brother of the groom .
  • MOOLA nakshatra pada 4 will bring auspiciousness to Father in law
  • ASHLESHA nakshatra pada 1 will bring auspicious results to MOTHER IN LAW
  • GANDANTA NAKSHATRAS like jyeshta revati ashlesha is insuaspicious only for the last 48 min
  • magha ashwini ,moola are inauspicious only in first 48 min .
  • As GANDANTA rashi only initial  12 minutes is inauspicious
  • As GANDANTA lagna only last 24 minutes is inauspicious .

the shadvarga of lagna should have atleast 4 benefic rashis .

The Vivaha muhurta shoudl not have a retrograde planet in second and a planet in 12th , this will bring misfortunes and misery owing to separation etc .

Vivaha moon with sun gives poverty , with mars gives death , with venus enemity and with shani it gives disinterest in sexual life after marriage .

Marriage in 8th lagna of girl will see her come back to her parents house after marraige .

If navamsa lagna of vivaha is 8th of girl’ asc or moon then wife and husband will quarrel and separate .

YOG PANCHAKA and BAANA should be seen properly for a muhurta to avoid , theft of jewelery , fire mishhaps , sudden attack of disease or any misfortunes like income tax raid or problems with authorities  on marraige day .

SHUBH navamsha is a must for vivaha muhurta  if one aspires pativrata stree .

where a planet should not be there !

  • 12th saturn ,
  • 10th mars ,
  • 3rd venus ,
  • afflicted  moon in asc ,
  • asc lord , venus or moon in 6th ,
  •  8th moon , asc lord ,benefics and mars
  • all planets in seventh are unfavourable

where planets do good !

  • ravi ketu rahu shani in 3 6 11 8
  • mars in 3 6 11
  • moon in 2 3 11
  • mercury and jupiter do good in places other than 7 12 8
  • venus does good in places other than 8 3 7 6 12

WIth a lagna having above said planetary positions  shoudl be chosen .

Ardhaikavimshopaka – 21and 1/2 point formula .

the following points are accorded to each planet

  • mercury – 2
  • venus – 2
  • moon – 5
  • sun – 3 1/2
  • jupiter – 3
  • shani 1-1/2
  • rahu 1-1/2
  • ketu 1-1/2
  • mars 1-1/2
  • total 21-1/2

In the previous paragraph Various places have been enumerated as good for a planet ,some places as bad .

  1. Cast a muhurta chart
  2. lacate the lagna ascendant
  3. count the positions of moon jupietr shani etc nine planets
  4. if the planet is in exact position as given in good placement table add its points .
  5. the planet placed in exact good position as per table will contribute full points
  6. the planets in other than good and bad positions table will contribute half
  7. the planets in exact bad positions will contribute zero points .
  8. Take only auspicous places of planets and add the points
  9. make a total
  10. if the total is below 5 do not even touch the muhurtha
  11. if the total is between 5-10 this is ashubha muhurta , [ should be used only in emergency ]
  12. if the total ARDHAIKAVIMSHOPAKA is between 10-15 it is medium muhurta
  13.  if the total ARDHAIKAVIMSHOPAKA is above  15 it is a good muhurta .
  14. see if doshas exist with some bad placements of planet in mixed muhurta .
  15. then if jupiter in kendra or 5th and 11 sun destroys doshas
  16. vargottama lagna or chandra destroy doshas
  17. mercury in kona and 1 4 10 [ not seventh ] destroys 100 doshas
  18. venus in same place destroys 200 doshas
  19. Jupiter in same place destroys 1 lakh doshas
  20. Just as fire destroys a  heap of cotton so also lagna lord in 11 1 4 10 places destroys evil .

VIVAHA lagna is the body of  bride , venus is mother in law , sun is father in law , seventh from lagna is groom , moon is mind of bride , BASED on these planets the happiness and misery of the following realations should be ascertained . The state of mind of the bride is known by moon on the day of marraige , CHANDRA BALA as per ashtakvarga will make it a happy event .

If the above planets are in bad avasthas so shall be the rekationships and the marraige will result in unhappiness for ex if venus is badly placed , mother in law will be unhappy with the marriage . if sun is badly placed then Father in law will be uncomfortable with the marraige . ALL marraiges in month of oct nov and jan feb will bring misery to Father in law . Marriages in the month of march april brings enormous happiness to parents of grrom .

For all LOVE marriages gandharvadi vivaha tripadi nakshtra should be chosen for muhurta .

Count the days nakshatra from SUN’s nakshatra , first 4 are inauspicious , next 2 are good , next 3 ashubh , next 1 shubh , next 4 shubh , 6 ashubh ,3 shubh , 1 ashubh , 3 shubh .  choose shubh for love/ register marriages

WHEN cows are returning from the forests in the evening , the dust seems to be raising from the hoofs of the cows and atmosphere is filled with  dust and dispersion with rays of setting sun , SUCh a time is very auspicious and no lagn a planet placement dosha etc should be seen at this time , ie 12 minutes before and after sunset this time known as GODHULI MUHURTA is best for marraige .


SRIRAAMA and LAXMANA along with SAGE VISHWAMITRA stayed in the KINGDOM of SUMATI born to VISHAL who was son of IKSHVAKU [ ANCESTOR of RAAMA ] and very beautiful  apsara ALAMBUSA of swarga .

HAVING spent the night in his Kingdom , SRIRAMA left for MITHILA .

In the small forest[upavana] near Mithila ,sage Vishwamitra showed an ashram to RAAMA and said thus :

Oh RAAMA , to cut down the excess punya of sage GAUTAM , INDRA in his absence , mated AHALYA to accomplish the Devakarya .[surkarya ] 

note ::[ INDRA did not mate AHALYA with lust , he violated Ahalya for the welfare of GAUTAMA as decided once in the devasabha ]This point is enumerated in valmiki ramayana also

kurvata tapaso vighnam gautamsya mahatmana: | krodhamutpadya hi surkaryamidam krutam || -(valmiki ramayana 1/49/2 )

AHALYA too did not lust INDRA . she mated him as he was in the dsguise of GAUTAM rishi her husband . Indra having violated her did not annihilate her pativratya .

Gautama when he came back to ashrama ,with his divyadrushti came to know of the events and immediately in anger cursed INdra to have meshvrushana [ testes of sheep ] and one with 1000 eyes. HE cursed AHALYA to be immovable as stone [ not a stone ] and invisible to others . She remained as herself but immovable as stone and yet invisible for others .

INDRA having meshavrushana and 1000 eyes was his prarabdha and gautama curse was only a nimitta .

GAutama said AHALYA will be relieved off the curse BY SRIRAMA .

DEVATAS and pitrus cut out the extra teste of Sheep of INDRA by their yogasiddhi .

As Sage VISHWAMITRA retold the events to RAAMA , sage said , ‘OH RAAMA mahendra [ INDRA ] is your devotee , kindly fulfill his desire , please bless this auspicious women AHALYA . [ what was the desire of INDRA , INDRA thought AHALYA was unnecessarily punished , she did not do any wrong , she is VISHNU BHAKTA and her condition is definitely owing to the act of INDRA , though my act did not render her impure , though it was for the benefit of GAUTAMA ,yet she is pained and being VISHNU BHAKTA , this tantamounts to giving pain to vishnu devotee , thus he had the desire that RAAMA should immediately relieve her off the curse .

2. once misunderstandings between wife and husband creep in and they separate , usually the bitterness reamains for rest of the life . It is difficult for them to live harmoniously with same enthusiasm and love as before . this may be due to non forgiveness of either towards each other . EVEn if one has forgiven , the incidents might come to rememberance again and again , factors like jealousy attachments and anger may arise temporarily again and gain , thus creating unhappiness between them momentarily even after they come together .

SO INDRA pleads VISHNU in his heart , that let GAUTAM accept his wife AHALYA wholeheartedly and again the old incidents be not come to their memory ever again , and let the two live happily  with LOVE and affection of the kind even more than ever before . SATVIK INDRA thought of these wishes day and night and pleaded VISHNU and when SRIRAMA came to mithila upavana was eager to get his desire fulfilled and through his SON [ VISHWAMITRA is son GADHI incarnation of INDRA ] pleaded again LORD RAAMA to relieve AHALYA of her curse .

 SRIRAAMA casting his glance on AHALYA , immidiately made AHALYA visible and relived  her from the shilikrutavastha . [ note : popular belief is SRIRAMA touched the toe to the stone , in VALMIKI such a reference is not there , neither did AHALYA become a stone nor did SRIRAAMA touch his toe , he relieved her off thecurse by his GLANCE – sandarhana ] the verses in valmiki ramayana are thus

sa sangraha ramayan taddarshanmatrena kanta kantpriyaa babhau | – sangraha ramayana

sa hi gautamvakyena durnirikshya babhuva h | – valmiki ramayana

The lord who reduces to ashes the whole universe with his galnace , this should definitely not come as a surprise so says valmiki .

GAUTMA rishi seeing his wife became very happy and both couples having recieved new lease of life worshipped RAAMA in various ways . and also expressed gratitude towards sage VISHWAMITRA .

THEN proceeding towards northeast SRIRAAM came to the large yagnyashala of RAJA JANAK in mithila . HAving heard of arrival of a apoorvapurusha along with sage VISHWAmitra , KING JANAk along with his kulguru Sage SHATANANDA [ son of sage GAUTAMA and AHALYA ] came to welcom sage vishwamitra .

After yatha vidhi pooja of sage VISHWAMITRA , JANAKA alongwith his family , looking at the apoorvapurusha SRIRAAMA , said :

“oh sage , who is this radiant person , with the blueish hue of markatmani [sapphire ] , with eyes like that of lotusleaves and with full of new found youth ?

shoulders and back as a lion , very broad chest , face as beautiful and attractive as full moon , deep navel , who is this person with neck of the shape of Shankha and huge wellbuilt arms .

hey muni ! with a all knowing smiling face , movement of an elephant , absolutely humble ,knowledgeable and with a multitudely meaningful speech , who is this handsome man ?

who is he ,who seems like a MANMATH to women , a humble student to thyself , a freind to needy , and death personified [ yama ] to enemies , and verily LORD himself to the yogis , who is HE?

at the same time HE seems to be very mild and sukumar and infinitely tender and handsome as a festival to the eyes , as his tender feet lands on the earth , i myself cannot withstand the thought of it getting bruised .

And by his side who is this another gentleman just like HIM ?

[ note : LAXMANA is just like RAAMA because, VAYU is pratibimba of NARAYANA and rudra and sesha are pratibimba of pavan . more importantly LAXMANA IS SANKARSHAN avesha ]

JANAK amidst his subjects who had gathered to see the beautiful verily NARAYANA RAAMA having asked thus  , sage smiled and then said

RAJAN ! HE is purushottama manohar RAAMA , son of DASHARATH , has come for the devakarya . The one similar to him is his brother LAXMANA , i have brought them from AYODHYA to sidhdhashrama .

He has protected my yagnya by killing rakshasa with an illusive ease , He was relieved Ahalya the wife of GAutam rishi from the curse by just his glance . The foremost among the archers who yield the BOW , he has come to see your SHIVADHANUSH . He is akin to the gold of highest hue among the golden heaps of archers , with a valour quotient as large as ksheersagar the milkocean , he is Puranpurusha [ one extolled by puranas] full of auspicious qualities , Make him your SON IN LAW .

Listening to the words of VISHWAMITRA , sage SHATANANDA looking towards SRIRAAMA said with absolute happiness ,

” hey DEV SRIRAAMA ! JAGANNATH [ the creator of world ] Welcome alongwith your brother ! By your Kindness my mother has found a new life !

This sage for whom you oh RAAMA , purushottama , you are showing to be his disciple , sage Vishwamitra is highly blessed in this world ‘

story of VISHWAMITRA as told by shatananda

This sage , son of GADHI once ruled as a powerful KING . HE once stole the cow KAAMDHENU [ one which gave whatever desired ] from the great sage VASHISHTHA .

note : GADHi is INDRA avatara in the lineage of moon chandravanshi kings . His daughter was wedded to RUCHIK sage . Sage RUCHIK had created two fruits with abhimantrana . [ one  to give birth to  a son full of bramhinical qualities to be taken by his wife  and another fruit with a mantra to give birth to a son full of kshatriya strength and violence to be given to GADHI’s wife ., Mother daughter duo met and unaware of the Mantra of the fruit , Gadhi’s wife thought , son inlaw might have made his own son more powerful , so she exchanged the fruits ; rishi having known that his wife has eaten KSHATRIYA fruit , expressed anger that son born would be violent . Ruchiks’ wife pleaded innocence and asked a way to mitigate the mistake , Ruchik said he can only delay the violent offspring by a generation . so JAMADAGNI was born to rRuchik in the next generation PARASHURAM the warrior bramhin rupa of HARI pradurbhava and here GADHI gave birth to a VISHWAMITRA who became bramharishi ] the reference GADHI is given by SHATANANDA is to show that VISHWAMITRA attained BRAMHANA caste by the abhimantrana  shakti of the RUCHIK sage and not by just efforts .

when VISHWAMITRA king took away the KAMADHENU , the cow created from its different organs , many armies of SHAKA , YAVANA , MLETCCHA , PALLAVA , all very powerful soldiers and destroyed the army of KING .

King then went away to forest to appease SHIVA and Rudra pleased gave him many divine astras and along with the bRAMHASTRA ,With all the astras , Vishwamitra came to fight with VASHISHTHA .

VASHISHTHA son of BRAMHA , with a VAISHNAV BRAMHADANDA , nullified all the astras of Vishwamitra got by SHAIVA aradhana .

Shatananda continues , this Sage vishwamitra created a TRISHANKU heaven for the king who had become chandal by the curse of offsprings of VASHISHTHA .

Sage accepted the meat of dog owing to hunger . Then finally decided to engage himself in the tapasya of VISHNU .

He encountered many obstacles and hinderances in his tapasya , and failed in his endeavours many times , once owing to kaama to menaka , owing to krodha to RAMBHA and again he continued his tapasya after lapses .

Completely fasting , with controlled breath , without making any movements and without any lapses and lacuna he meditated on chakrapani LORD NARAYANA  for tens of thousands of years ,  

Bramha and other devatas , at different stages of tapasya as it progressed ,  showered on Vishwamitra , rajarishitva , rishitva , maharshi and bramharishi posts .

Thus oh RAAMA , he is the most deserving and you being Bramhanpriya , you have chosen him with affection  , it comes as no surprise .

SriRaama listening to shatananda sage , looked at VISHWAMITRA [ though RAAMA is allknowing , his such action of feigning ignorance , asking approvals ,seeking  permission is only for daitya mohan , CAN there ever be darkness in the city of SUN .]

story of SEETA

Next day King JANAK , along with sages came to RAAMA near yagnyashala and said with complete devotion and humility .

” Hey Vishwamitra muni ! once while I was ploughing the the land for conducting a Yagnya , a girl incomparable to anyone in the world became pradurbhava [ manifested ] . I was struck with a happiness just as a impoverished man would be struck with joy on finding a large  hidden wealth , i found a girl struck to the edge of the plough .

note: a plough is known as ” SIRI”  , just as LORD NARSIMHA came out of pillar , so also LAXMIDEVI , came out of the LAND yagnyabumi from the PLOUGH . hence she became “SIRIJATA” the shortform of which became popularly as SITA . This is also pradurbhava .

Just as she grew from a child into a girl , I was filled with worry . How can I find a GROOM to her , just as SHRUTI [ vedas ] cannot be given to incapable people so also this beautiful incomparable girl cannot be given to an AYOGYA .

note: also JANAK was 99000 years old by then .

So I undertook a long tapasya and pleased SHIVA , who blessed me with a BOW . This bow could not be lifted by anyone other than PINAKIPANI [ shiva , the wielder of bow PINAK ] none can even touch or move it just as this earth cannot be raised by any other than VARAHA .

With this bow SHIVA had destroyed and cut to pieces DAKSHA in Dakshayagnya . and later with his power he had restored them . That kshipraprasad [ giver boons very quickly ] [ usually kshipraprasaad is GANESH but being his FATHER SHIVA is definitely a more KSHIPRAPRASAD .]

 JANAK said I did take a oath – that one who ties the string to this bow , I would  give the hand of this girl to HIM . This spread to all the directions like a sun’s rays .

Many yaksha rakshas , princes , and daityas came to test their strength . Some ran away after seeing the bow , some touched and fainted , some gave up after trying to move . Many accepted their inability and went back , others went back seeing these greats failing ,.Some gave up trial owing to fear of failure .Ten faced RAVANA too tried and fainted , But some even after failing , tried to abduct SITA by force and then a war ensued for one year , and everyone fled , BRAMHA’s boon[ that none can forcefully take SITA away ] was in  a way helpful for me ,

So Let RAAMA tie the string to the bow and marry SITA just like light merges into SUn , chandrika merges into ful Moon , JANAK urges to fulfill his oath .

[ interesting to note is the point that in mahabharata , Bheshmak raja is said to have incurred sin owing to calling for swayamvar for Rukmini . But JANAK does not get this sin for arranging the swayamvar ,

reason ACHARYA MADHVA gives is, Bheeshmak under the influence of RUGMI his son , with an intent to give RuKMINI to SHISHUPALA , arranges the swayamvar , whereas JANAK with a resolute mind that let SITA marry RAAMA arranges swayamvar .

Bheeshmak is also SATVIK and hence this sin is washed off by KRSIHNA by showing him his VISHWAROOPA . ]

Vishwamitra asked to get the bow immediately .

By the order of the King , the bow was brought in a huge box mounted on eight wheels pulled by 5000 veerottama men who were given boon by SHIVA to be able to pull the bow well protected in the box .

the fact it was kept in box of eight wheels shows how huge the bow was . and fact that it was pulled with difficulty by 5000 very brave  men not by natural strength but due to boons , shows the wieght of the bow .

vishwamitra said RAAMA , tie the string to the bow ! RAAMA said ” Ok ” and Got up towards the box .

As RAAMA walked , the sound of his earrings and radiance of his body filled the atmosphere and looking at them the women in the vicinity exclaimed and conversed with each other

” The princess of KAusal KAUSALYA devi is very blessed for having given birth to such a radiant and brave RAAMA , a look at him reduces miseries of the world and Dasharath is really a happiest person when RAAMA calls him as FATHER .

Bramha could not have created with all his might the beauty known as SITA . She has come all by herself in the land with a beauty incomparable to any thing in this universe MAhalaxmi herself has been pradurbhava as SITA and she should marry RAAMA , He alone is capable and fit for her HAND . She is alone fit for HIM .

note : this goes on to show that even common man in MITHILA knew that SITARAAM are LAXMINARAYANA .

The tieing of Bow need not be the point of cognizance for RAAMA to be a fit husband for SITA . one need not test him through this , Just as one need not test the light of the SUN with a small lamp . RAAMA’s strength and SITAPATITVA is a foregone conclusion .

Let this PRINce RAAMa who is NARAYANA himself get the hand of SEETA and we ll be blessed with the view of this incident of marraige as we prepare ourself to surrender our punya through SEETA to NARAYANA RAAMA .

SRIRAAMA with his left hand easily lifted the SHIVA DHANUSH .as thousands viewed and JANAK RAAJA got up and VISHWAMITRA recited svastivachan , as LAXMAN smiled RAMA tied the string to the bow . As RAAMA pressed the bow head , the bow as high as baniyan tree , broke into pieces . in the hands of SRIRAAMA , just as sugarcane breaks into pieces in the trunk of INDRA’s elephant AIRAVAT . [ INDRA’s elephant is a huge elephant multitudes times stronger than ordinary elephants in the world , sugarcane stick breaks in any elephants trunk easily more so very easily like twig in the trunk of AIRAVAT ] breaking shivadhanush was pointer to enormous strength of LORD RAAM .

The sound of the bow breaking into two propagated into the space travelling fast in all direction in three worlds , as though it was eager to announce ” RAAMA has wed SEETA ” in all the world like a speeding messenger filled with joy and uncontrollable urge to spread  the message .

The sound triggered the celebrations in the three worlds with people devatas animals bursting into joy .

Accomplishing the feat not possible by anyone in the universe , exhibiting enormous unparalleled strength RAAMA with a smiling face akin to moon , stood gazing MUNI vishwamitra and his brother LAXMANA .

Just as VEDA emanated from creator BRAMHA , LAXMIDEVI in the form of Princess of mithila emerged from the palace . The rings of the bells in the anklet and with a walk and gait that would put RAJAHANSI to shame slowly walked towards RAAMA with extreme happiness increasing with every step and step after step .

EVERY time as viewed SEETA DEVI looked anew , even though not smiling her radiance seemed to make fun of everyone else [ who looked ordinary before her ] even though silent her beauty seemed talking to everyone SEETADEVI was a bright festival to eyes of the people gathered .

The kindness , beauty and attraction and infinite qualities of SEETADEVI , who on this earth can describe? Those qualities when out of curiosity when attempted to describe , even CHATURAANAN would seem ACHATURAANAN ! wont’ he ?

note : LAXMIDEVI has all the qualities crores of times greater than rujus and even BRAMHA cannot describe qualities  her in words , if attempted even he would seem achaturanan [ with a mouth without chaturya ] even though he is chaturaanan [ four faced ]

As though a divine river dashed against a ocean , forcefully flowing river named shyness suddenly encountered a huge ocean of devotion , SEETADEVI shyly vieweing RAAMA by side glances , suddenly owing to devotion , gasped at RAAMA slowly . SEETADEVi initially had shyness and at the same time devotion towards RAAMA . finally devotion took upper hand and SHE GAZED at RAAMA .

HAPPY elated FACE , LOTUS EYES . BLUEISH hue , PERFUMED with shrigandha and devadaru ,an  epitome of bravery , youthful ,and shelter to his subjects ,Such a RAAMA is her HUSBAND , the very thought made her happy again and again.

SEETADEVI continuously gazes her husband as LAXMI she does that ceaslessly towards NARAYANA , yet NARAYANA seems evernew to her . This is a adbhut quality of BHAGVAAN VISHNU , that he always seems new to his WIFE every second he exhibits a new quality and new rupa to LAXMI and this activity goes on infinitely . [nityanutan navayauvanyukta  ] he gives happiness to his wife LAXMI again and again .

THEN SEETADEVI puts the garland of golden LOTUS smeared with newly grated chandan still wet and fresh ., onto SRIRAAMA . SRIRAAMA also immediately bestowed  the look swelled with wetness of  amritarasa [ nectar ]of affection and LOVE towards SEETADEVI .

LORD RAAMA’s marraige was fixed with SEETADEVI  on uttaraphalguni nakshatra , amidst loud music and stotras and vedaghosha entire universe including BRAHMA RUDRA AND INDRA and DEVATAS showered flowers from the heaven to their creator  PARAMPURUSHA ADIPURUSHA  SRIRAAMA and SEETADEVI.

Krishnarpanamastu . .


Parmatma Vasudeva to create this world manifested Chaturmukha bramha from his navel . Bramha created devatas , asuras and manavas .

bramha created Sanatkumar etc to further procreate but they being totally Virakta engaged in tapasya and bramhcharya . Seeing this Bramha expressed anger . From anger Came RUDRA SHIVA from his forehead . He became deity incharge of AHANKAARA . He in turn procreated but only BHOOTA PETA PISACHA etc . Seeing this vikruti , BRAMHA asked him to stop further creation and himself engaged in further srishti .

Just as seeds of trees further growth in population of trees in to forest , similarly Bramha gave rise to seeds like MARICHI VASISHTHA etc saptarishis . And sons like Bhrigu Narad and Kardam rishi .

The greatest seed of the todays human population SAge KASHYAP was born to MARICHI . To ADITI by Kashyapa was born SURYA , just like agni emanates from ARINI .If this world is a big tree then KASHYAP is the seed of this jagadvruksha .

Surya gave birth to MANU by name Shraaddhdeva . In this lineage great Kings like Ikshvaku took birth .The brilliant lineage with personalities  like pearls of garland [ ratnamala ] and among these array of precious stones ,like a main MANI Dasharath was born . he was the leader among his race .

Dasharath wa born to King AJA . DASHARATH is avatara of SWAYAMBHU MANU .

Dasharatha ruled from the city named AYODHYA and ruled over the land spread over SEVEN seas saptasamudra BHUMANDALA . under single banner of his kingdom and thus was Chakravarti DASHARATHA .

In his Kingdom , dharma was venturing like a ox with artha and kaama  as its horn and moksha as its hump and complete with four limbs of dharma as shuchi, tapas , daya , satya . He ruled justly .He was extremely daanveer and none ever went empty handed from his palace . None ever dared to attack him and those who aspired enemity with him never raised their heads .

But he had only one dosha of not having a child .Just like the spot in the moon , though He was praiseworthy in all aspects he could not beget a child .not able to get child from either of three wives , He introspected :

just like a Jignyasu after studying three  Vedas still introspects without getting the conclusion about [ TATVANIRNAY ] . just as having three wives despite being not bale to see a child a MIMANSAKA  struggles to see the LORD [ aparoksha ] tatvanirnaya despite having mastered three vedas .

Without studying BRAMHASUTRAS tatvanirnay is not possible is the goodartha [ hidden meaning in this ] . Mimansaka is described as VEDAADYAARTHAVICHAARKARTA .

also further DASHARATHA undertakes Atharvavedopaya to beget CHILD is noteworthy .

Struck by fever named childlessness , King lost interest in all activities and called upon the meeting of his ministers SUMANTRA and others to discuss the solution . One struck with fever loses his sense of taste and everything seems tasteless and also when health takes a backseat everything else in the life is affected . Just as one seeks medical advise during illness KING sought advice of his able ministers .

Dasharatha concluded , that He would pacify Lord NArayana to seek a son , if Lord is pleased what is impossible in this world , everything can be had by pleasing NARAYANA. So Dasharath decided to perform ASHWAMEDHA YAGNYA to please NARAYANA . And asked Sumantra to seek best of the bramhin ritvijas well versed in mantra and tantra and yagnya vidhi and He himself would take shelter in VASISHTHA the kulaguru just a yesteryears Kshatriyas took shelter in Bramhins akin to Anil and anala [ air and fire ] . Kings always make progress if they are in able guidance of Brahmins .

Thus with antargat bhavana of VASUDEVA in Dasharatha bowed again and again with devotion to the bramhins brought by his ministers .

Suyagnya ,VAAMADEVA , Jabali  , Kashyapa and Vashishtha were invited with devotion and increased the gait of the event like panchagni [ five fires ] – avahniya ,garhapatya ,dakshina , rukmak , ahitagni .

Finding the blessings of the rishis King Dasharath along his family started collecting the ingredients of yagnya and preparations for the grand event .

In a lone moments when King was still sceptical about procuring SON , the wellversed learned SUMANTRA advised King Thus . “ Oh king I wish to reveal to you a DEVARAHASYA that i had overheard during a sabha [ gathering ] of Munis by revealed by SANATKUMAR rishi . Vibhandak rishi, son of KASHYAPA  is very adept in shastras and very stringent in austerities [ teekshnatapasvi] . Such A rishi Vibhandak has given rise to a yet another gem of austerities RISHYASHRINGA rishi just like agni from arani is fit for yagnya , so also Rishyashringa from VIBHANDAKa is fit for the yagnya you are envisaging .

Lomapada king of ANGA desha wanted to bring Rishyashringa to his country [ as the country was reeling under famine ] Rishyashringa , who had horns of deer on his head , was ever engaged in bramhacharya and good conduct . Women of kingdom of LOMAPADA , dressed as munis somehow managed to get RIshyashringa into the Kingdom of ANGA . As he set his foot the soil of the kingdom , RAINS poured down heavily on the famine struck country , giving much pleasure to its citizens and KING himself . KIng Lomapada with an aim to keep the rishi in his Kingdom and as a token of gratitude married his daughter SHANTA to Rishyashringa .

Sanatkumar said , DASHARATH will also call this rishi Rsihyashrunga and get a yaga done then LORD ADHOKSHAJA SRIHARI will be born to him as SHRIRAMA as his SON . SRIRAAMA with his bright fame akin to the full moon night will destroy the andhakaara [ darkness ] and give happiness to the entire universe .

SANATKUMAR’s this revelation of DEVARAHASYA i have heard and now revealed , so oh KING go and get the rishi from the house of LOMAPADA and he will get you your desire fulfilled . “

note when a highly devoted person starts to get some doubts or chinta , LORD himself appoints advisors to clear off his apprehensions beyond doubt with a clairvoyant prophecy [ ASTROLOGY for SATVIKAS is nothing but clairvoyance to carry out the duty without any apprehensions and reap happiness even before the fructification of KARMA . similarly in MAHABHARATA too SAHADEVA , Mandhata , MAndukya many rishis keep on encouraging YUDHISTHIR during vanavasa and other troubled times to keep faitha nd one day he will win the great WAR and get rid of his enemy permanently , astrology gives immense happiness and steadfastness to SATVIKAS ]

Dasharatha having heard SUMANTRA took the permission of VASHISHTHA and went personally to LOMAPADA and brought  Sage RISHYASHRINGA [ born to a deer and SAGE VIBHANDAK ] to AYODHYA for the ashwamedha yagnya .

After getting the HORSE make a round of the entire BHUMANDALA[ BHUPRADAKSHINA ] KING Dasharath took the deeksha of the YAGNYA on the northern banks of SARAYU .

RAJA Dasharath was as impressive as KUBERA himself in wealth and finding his invitation all the Kings of bhumandala came to witness the yagnya like ordinary vaishyas brought precious gifts to to impress the KUBERA of the KINGS . They paid respects to him for his stupendous feat . EVEN ordinary men from all walks of life rushed to witness the great yaga .

In the whole place of deeksha and yaga , only words that were heard were ‘ please be seated ; kindly eat , please drink to your satisfaction ; kindly wear this beautiful garment , accept this wonderfull dress “ No one ever mentioned the word ‘’ DEHI’ ;’give me  this ‘ or can i have this ‘ where is my so and so “ all these words were never heard at all .

That means guests were made available everything even before they wished for anything ; There was no scope for even asking , all the necessities were accessible and within reach and given by royal attendants , people and invitees alike were just dumbfound at the stupendous arrangements .

[note : this is very important point that one must all learn especially the madhvas , as everytime RAYARA aradhana comes  , hundreds of madhva volunteers spring into action to celebrate the aradhana , but rarely we find that there is man management or time management or resource utility to maximum .

ALways even after 300 years aradhana experience the common sight of thousands of footwear outside mutt or facility exists , the guests are seated hours before the spread and it takes a while to announce RAJARAJADHIRAAJ gurusarvabhouma govinda govinda ! much to the surprise that even before the sentence ends , the leafs will be empty gasping here and there [ swamy innu alankaar pankti mugillilla , appa nammaur ge sambharu sigalilla , payasa ee pankti ge badasale illave , even before majjige comes half the pankti is heading towards the blocked door , yaradru bagilu tegire maharaya kai tolakobeku ] and then after the Krishnarpana , it is again a common  sight to see raised hands with buttermilk still dripping from wrists and taps overflowing with indiscriminate struggle to reach the ordeal .

And then endless saga of missing shalyas dhotis and tambige is usual sight . and ofcourse it will be great relief if you come back with your own footwear amongst the ocean of footwear ! I hope someday good senses will dawn ! Our culture is optimisation to the core , our youngsters must know this and implement it in day today life  ]

Expert in Vibhandak’s son Rishyashringa and Bramha’s son VASHISHTHA and other ritvijas  completed the Yagnya successfully . Ashvamedha is the great  among the yangnyas

LOrd SRIHARI was especially present to the full in sannidhi in every aspect of yagnya such as Mantra , tantra ,upkaran , kartru , vahni ,desha , kaal ,blemishlessly in every visible aspects and thus it completed to the fullest and in a highest way .

All the subprocesses of the yagnya such as , pravarga , somarasa trisavan , varieties of havis and many other things owing to perfection satisfied VAYU and other devtas to the full .

Pravarga is a special ahuti ; pratah madhyandin and sayam are the tri savanas .

WIll words be enough to describe the yagnya when Yejamana is someone like DASHARATHA and YAJAKA  is sage VASHISHTHA and the phala is SRIRAMA PRADURBHAVA . Great is such event as this indescribable is its mahima .

Dasharatha gave away his entire Kingdom in divisions to the RITVIJAS , but they refused it [ just as ritvijas refused kingdom from pandavas  and instead opted for dhana money ] Thus DASHRATHA instead gave them billions [ arbud] of gold coins to each of the ritvija . He also gave lakhs of cows to each . [ TANTRASARA recommends giving 1 lakh cows to the pradhan archaka in a yagnya ]  .The king of all castes RAJA DASHRATH donated silver  four times the amount of gold to each bramhins . and everytime he donated HE bowed touching his head to the ground with reverence that VISHNU be pleased with me .

When the cloud named DASHARATH rained gold in billions , the entire universe filled with happiness like an ocean just ready to erupt in joy breaking the boundaries during tide . Just as bramhins flew like ocean water into his kingdom , when he sighted poor among them , daridra among them he rewarded them with his own bracelets and personal belongings [ personal belongings of a chakravarti would be more precious than ordinary gold . [ This reminds of BHEEMSEN rewarding bramhin in the midnight by his bracelet for upanayana of his son ]

Seeing the datrutva bhava of KING the subjects praised him wholeheartedly .

Totally pious and cleansed by the avabrutha snana of the yagnya when along with the wives DASHARATHA bowed before bramhins they blessed him wholeheartedly to get his desired .

Rushyashringa muni then advised PUTRAKAMESHTHI yaga from upanishads of ATHARVAVEDA to beget a son and to completely achieve the KARMAVIMUKTI .

This time by the power of Rushyshringa muni , to accept the havirbhaga [ the oblations of yagnya ] devatas personally came to yagnyashala .Having spotted the devatas , with folded hands RUSHI RISHYSHRINGA pleaded to Devatas “ oh devatas , my Yajamana , RAJA DASHARATHA , one who has just concluded ASHWAMEDHA yagnya , is seeking your shelter and surrenders to your feet , to seek a SON for his lineage . Kindly grant him  SON . “

Rishyashringa makes a plea on behalf of the KING [yejamana ] [ Note the culture of SANTANA dharma , vedik dharma , people here make pleas for the others with sincerety and devotion , the one who is hit by shoka [ emotional breakdown , hit by destiny may perhaps make mistakes or may not be in right frame of mind so the yajak makes the plea ]

“Oh devatas , DASHARATHA is aspiring for a unrivalled SON , even the destiny also is due for one for LOKAKALYANA , kindly bless him his desire “

DEVATAS after giving RAJA DASHARATHA a boon fulfilling his desires , immediately hurried to Bramhaloka .

DEVATAS worshipped BRAMHA , “ SWAMY ! Kindly save this world from the clutches of RAVANA and Kumbhakarna etc RAKSHASAS “

After listening to the Plea Bramha said with a smile “ that Only VISHNU looks after us all about our YOGA KSHEMA , HE has already readied a solution , lets go to HIM “

Yoga means – getting the desired or availability of desired ; kshema means – praptasya parirakshanam – safeguarding the desired that has been got or made available ;

Bramha says just as the ox is controlled by the strings through its nose held by the owner , so also we are controlled by SRIHARI and we pray HIM and he would bring mangala auspiciousness to our lives .

Thus along with SHIVA BRAMHA took all the devtas to KSHIRSAGAR .[ the ocean of milk ].

ALL the devatas who lived on nectar , saw the kshirsagar , it seemed to be a reflection of the ocean of qualities of GOD , white like a necklace of pearls .It looked like a big podium often raised  by the waves of the ocean leading into some big city of the GOD . The ocean was making a huge splashing sound like the stotra of the HARI in a baritone voice and at the same time seemed like the mind of the devotee seeking fruits , which is irrestive from inside due to anxiety of a boon , and rising like dancing maid full of devotion to KRISHNA .

Bramha and Rudra and others standing at the crease of the Ocean , praised the HARI with a relaxed mind .

Oh NARAYANA ,resting on the Sesha and complete with many pleasures and without beginning , middle or end oh Lord salutation salutation salutation salutation to you .[ four times salutations to beget four purusharthas ]

You are the only entity who can impart  srishti laya niyama stithi gynana agnyana bandha moksha .

You have infinite qualities , even if all of us together , separately start counting the quantum of your single quality , all of us puttogether also cannot reach conclusively to the end of it . You have unfathomable depth of quality . what about others qualities which you still have infinite in you , We are just too infinitesimal in all aspects before you  OH NARAYANA .

SWAMY ! Raavana the fire is ready to burn the entire world , even before it does so , please take birth as the SON of DASHARATHA and douse this fire with the infinite  water of your infinite veerya . and free from misery the devotees who have immense faith in you .

Lord with kaoustubh mani , immensely radiant like crores of sun at the time of sunrise , wearing a yellow silk very attractive NARAYANA appeared before BRAMHA and others .

With a smile that brings happiness to the Devatas , HARI said in a voice akin to the thunderous cloud ,which destroyed the fear in the devatas , said “ oh devatas leave aside the fear and get back to your places , I shall slay the Demon soon . [ Again satvikas have ensured a prophecy to allay their fears and increase happiness and cast away doubts , astrology helps , it is word of GOD’s will to satvikas  ]

Devatas went back to swarga .

Here a devata from BRAMHALOKA by the order of LORD NARAYANA , appeared in the fire of putrakameshthi yagnya . This bright devta gave a golden  bowl of KHEER [ payasa ] and that mahadbhut vyakti said this will give you a SON ;

RAJA DASHRATHA gave half of the kheer to KAUSHALYA devi[ 1/2 ]  . From remaining half , he gave another half of it to SUMITRA[ 1/4 ] . from the remaining half  , he gave a half to Kaikeyi [ 1/8 ] and reamaining Half he gave it to Sumitra devi again  [ 1/8 ] ;

having eaten the payasa , the women were looking bright and happy as the fuller queen bees who have just suck the nectar of flowers of the plants of the vasant rutu . Soon they became pregnant to enlighten the lineage of RAGHU .

Seeing the birth of LORD eminent in the kings palace , Bramha ordered all the devatas to be born to themselves among the bears and monkeys and other animals and also as humans  to serve the LORD .

Soon devatas were born among these kapis , Jambavan was already born from the yawn of bRAMHA as bear mighty to kill many rakshasas . HANUMAN was born to anjali devi . Some devatas were born as goangulas , ie black faced monkeys too .

Indra took birth as VALI , he had HARI avesha , Surya took birth as  SUGREEVA and he had BRAMHA avesha . Chandra was born as ANGAD with Indra sannidhan . Agni was born as NEEL .VARUN came down as sudeshna , vishwakarma as NAla , Mainda and vividha were Ashwini devatas . vividha with Indra avesha was stronger than Maindha .

Pran apaan etc were born as gaja gavaksh gavay vrush and gandhmadan , they were born to kubera .

Sweth and Sampathi are maruts with vasu avesha of panas and shatabali .

Braihaspati took the vatara of TAar kapi . Sachi became his sister TARA . Kubera took birth as kaththan kapi . Nirruti [ gatotkach ] became durmukh vanar . Kesari is marut . parjanya became sharabh kapi . then 1000 of rishi gandharva and siddhas took birth as humans to serve SRIRAAMA .

These vanaras monkeys were extremely strong , they could lift trees mountains and could stop rivers and in anger can even split the earth , each had the strength of 10000 elephants and required no weapons except their own nails and teeth ,

earth became a glorious place by the birth of these extreme warriors who were akin to mountains in size and attacked like a tumultuous rains during pralaya . expert in many types of warfares were ready for the service of SRIRAMA .

Thus in VAIVASVAT manvantara , in TRETAYUGA uttarayana , chaitra shukla paksha Navami morning in PUNARVASU NAKSHATRA , when JUpiter and MOON were in kARKATAKA [ cancer ] in cancer ascendant SUn in ARIES and five planets in exaltation , PARAMAPURUSHA NARAYANA manifested from the the complete austere clean and pure KAUSALYA DEVI just as a tatava gyani gets his realisation after pure and clean and austere life . This is SRIRAMA pradurbhava .

As he descended , Satvika delighted and tamas demons were rejected and dejected and went into deep slumber but world on the whole rejoiced .

Bramha and other devatas showered flowers from the heavens and AYODHYA filled with happiness and atmosphere went into frenzy with the beats of dundhubi and drums .

The bed of The SRIHARI ADISESHA thereby descended onto earth to serve the LORD , SRIRAMA , in ashlesha nakshatra when SUn was in cancer . LAxman actually took births few months later . SRIRAMA in chaitra masa and Laxmana in Ashadha masa as son to SUMITRA

Then Abhimani devatas of CHAKRAPANI HAri’s chakra KAMA took birth in PUSHYAMI nakshatra as son to KAIKEYI as BHARATH .

PANCHAJANYA shankha abhimani devata ANIRUDDHA [ kaamaputra aniruddha avatara] took birth again to SUMITRA devi as SHATRUGHNA .


SRIRAMA from VASUDEVA rupa , LAXMAN with avesha of SANKARSHANA , BHARATH avesha of PRADYUMNA rupa and SHATRUGHNA as avesha of ANIRUDHHA rupa of HARI .

Suddenly when daridra gets abundant wealth ,he loses his state of mind , similarly RAJA DASHARATH lost his senses by the happiness of birth of the sons . Similarly entire AYODHYA witnessed the a strange kind of happiness never seen before in the household of every citizen be it women or men , they danced and sang with mahasambhrama ,

VASISHTHA rishi made the jatahkarma rituals and DASHRATHA gave away infinite wealth in dana as vipras gave ashirwaad to new born child ,

RAJA Dashrathaalongwith many sages named his Chid [ NARAYANA of ananatanaama infinite names ] as RAAMA ,

  1. one who attracts everyones mind
  2. one who stays inside the heart as ATMARAAM and is of blueish hue like that of markatmani , Thus he is known as RAAMA .
  3. As HE is always accompanied by Ramaaa so also he is called as RAAMA .
  4. He grants all the wishes dear the the minds of a women so also HE is called as RAAMA .
  5. He gives happiness muda to everyone thus HE is called as RAAMA .

It is for this Same RAAMA upasana RAYARU has come on the earth from BRAMHALOKA . As Shankukarna he was deity incharge of bringing Tulasi to the RAAMA upasana that BRAMHA was doing in BRAMHALOKA ,. Everyday as BRAMHA was worshipping MOOLARAMA  VIGRAHA , Shankukarna secretly nurtured the desire to do the archana of SRIMOOLARAAMA . One day As SHRIRAAMACHANDRA present in SHANKUKARNA inspired him to delay the supply of TULASI to Bramha . BRAMHA [ though a sampoorn saatvika and adhipati of MAHATTATVA does not have an iota of tamas in him to have dosha like anger ] yet showed anger on SHANKUKARNA and cursed him to be born on earth firstly as demon and later as human . The idea behind the curse was let SHANKUKARNA fulfill his desire of worshipping the RAAMA vigraha on the earth .This is known as ANUGRAHA SHAAPA !

Shankukarna was born as Prahalada . and then as SHRI RAGHAVENDRA SWAMY ,

Bramha gave the MOOLARAMA vigraha to MANUputra KING IKSHVAKU and then it remained with SURYA VANSHI KINGS including LORD RAAMA whereby it was worshipped by BHARAT SHATRUGHNA VIBHEESHANA and HANUMAN , from there it came to BHEEMSENA during DWAPARA , from there it remained with GAJAPATY kings in orissa ,  FROM ORISSA NARHARITEERTHA [ disciple of MADHVACHARYA ] who ruled KALINGA for 12 years [ as a result of RAAMAUPASANA as stated above ] brought it and gave it MOOLSANSTHANA of MADHVACHARYA . as the parmapara descended , GURUSARVABHOUMA RAGHAVENDRA teertha worshipped this MOOLARAAMA VIGRAHA fulfilling his long cherished desire .

MOOLRAAMA is still being worshipped in MANTRALAYAM by the saints of this Great PARAMAPARA of which we are all proud to be part of !

Pitru Vatsalya – The story of Bhagirath

If the lagna of father is 10th to that of son , son will have extreme devotion towards his father and ancestors . similarly pitru pada and lagna pada are in mutual kendras there will be extreme affection between the son and the father .

Sanatan dharma [ vedic way of life ] stresses extreme importance of the kartavya [duties] towards our pitru[ father and ancestors]
. Pitru tarpan and solace to ancestors departed is very essential to the happiness and general well being of the family . However it is quality of followers of dharma that they perform duty out of consciousness of Dharma coupled with love towards Pitrus rather than greed of well being . This is known as Pitru vatsalya .

The story of Sagar putra is good example of this vatsalya as how generations together a dynasty struggled to free its ancestors from sin and curse. This is a great lesson to us that we our actions affect our pitrus and vice versa . So one must be careful with one’s karma as it affects 7 generations prior to us and seven generation following us . a man can suffer himself but cannot bear to see his children and manes suffering owing to him .

Once there lived a very pious King named SAGAR . he had two wives , one son named ASAMANJAS from one wife and 60000 from other . Asmanjas grew to be very cruel , he threw the children of the city into sarayu river . The subjects complained to the King and King abandoned Asamanjas . Asamanjas had developed ‘vairagya ‘ and wanted to take sanyas and leave the world . But as sagar was intent on making him King , He acte like cruel , once abandoned he made his real intention clear and brought back all the children from sarayu river.

Many years later Sagar decided to perform Ashwamedha yagnya . The horse of Aswamedhayagnya was stolen by Indra and tied it near Kapila Muni in patala loka .60000 sons of Sagar went to search the horse . In their attempt to reach Patal they dug the entire earth . This resulted in lowering of the land and samudra [ocean ] surrounding jambu dweep entered the earth and thus we could see formation of SAAGAR .[ sea] . as samudra gave way to smaller sea [ this was due to Sagar sons’] and thus named SAAGAR .

Now as they reached Patala loka , they thought Kapila muni himself has stolen the horse , in ignorance like patanga insects attacking fire flame , attacked Kapila . [ Kapila is form of VISHNU] Lord Kapila opened his eyes and all the 60000 were reduced to ashes . [ Lord who is capable of bringing pralaya and reducing entire creation to ashes , this act is no surprising] .

Asamanjas ‘s son Anshuman went looking for the horse , As he came to patala , he prayed Lord kapila and asked his forgivance towards his uncles . Lord blessed Anshuman and gave him the horse , also told him that only Ganga if brought down on earth to Patala , when flows over the ashes of the sagar sons will ensure them a place in swarga .

Anshuman took the horse and Sagar completed the yagnya . To give solace to his pitrus , Anshuman started a penace to bring the Ganga to the earth . Even before achieving the task , he left the world . His son Dileep also went into forest to bring the Ganga , but died before achieving the task in his life time . [ imagine spending a lifetime in penace and giving life in the pursuit to bring solace to Pitrus]

Dileeps son Bhagirath  too wnet into forest and after a penace of 1000 years to Bramha asked the Ganga to be brought down to the earth . Ganga expressed her force was too heavy and would split the earth if she falls unchecked and hence would require someone to control and check her flow. Bhagirath went into penance for another 1000 years to Lord Shiva and requested him to take it into his jata . But AS GANGA FELL INTO THE JATA  , to teach ganga a lesson and relieve her from ego , Shiva tightened his jata that not a single drop flew out of it . Bhagirath again prayed for many years to request Rudra to release ganga . 

Shiva released a strand and with great flow Ganga fell on himalayas . Bhagirath the noble minded in order to make many places pure and blessed , took Ganga to trace  a long track around earth to Patala . On the way , Ganga ‘s flow disturbed Agastya muni and Sage drank entire ganga . Bhagirath again prayed to the sage and Sage brought out the River through his ears . [ Thus all bramhins are said to have sannidhi of ganga in the ear ] .

Bhagirath brought the Jhanhvi [ being daughter of kingJahnu , Ganga is also known as Jahnvi] to Patala to flow over his mane’s ashes , Sagar sons went to swarga .

Ganga had come into existence by the touch of foot of Lord Trivikrama[ haripada] .So ganga is HaripadaUdaka . and thus by the touch of sacred pada of the Lord , it can destroy many sins and purify the sagar’s sons and absolve them of the sins . here should not be any doubt then that Pada of Hari himslef when resorted to can destroy many a sins and purify us .  Thus shravan manan and kirtan [ listening to , meditating on lords’ feet] will definitely give Moksha
Krishnarpanamastu .


Mercury with mandi or gulika aspected by mars in badhak sthana will make one suffer from abhichara dosha .

Enemies resort to abhichara when they cannot harm a person through wits and schemes . Abhichara acts only through purva janma yoga . When a person is having a good phase of time abhichara does not affect him but affects in due course when bad times strike.

It will not be an exaggeration if a statement is made to the effect that 90 % of the people in the world are affected by abhichara .

Sometimes a very good family with happy ties and bonds suddenly fall prey to internal mishaps and severe enmities . Brothers suddenly stop talking to each other . Two families eager to tie knots to their siblings stop conversing and worst become severe enemies. Two most loving couples fall prey to misunderstandings and stay apart for long time .

though in all such cases there is longing for reunion but when they come across face to face a moment of rashness destroys their peace attempts unknowingly they drift away from and lament later .

All these times all these people keep sighing If only …….

These are all definite signs of abhichara being applied onto the people by enemies . Vidweshan is powerful form of abhichara which brings two people at war . Then maran is applied to kill all the parties involved . This is tamas vidya and should not be adhered to even in extreme danger .

Vidweshan can be cast , when teeth of elephant and lion powdered and mixed with butter if applied onto two people they will become enemies forever .

homa between two houses with malati flowers can cause vidweshan . however vidweshan mantra should be made sidhdha with two falcons in each hand .

Enemies are constantly in effort to separate good friends , brothers and lovers . etc . To avoid these one must always protect self from sudarshan mantra and Hanuman kavach .

When Yudhisthir put on gamble bait his brothers , Duryodhan exclaimed to Bheema , ” hey Bheem and Arjun , deplore your elder brother , who has treated you like objects and I shall grant you the freedom “

Bheem says , even now Yudhisthir is very dear and respectable to us . He has every right onto all of us and whole of Indraprastha . nothing wrong in putting us on bait as son is the property of the father , elder brother is akin to father , to obey is our duty . We do not seek freedom you , as an order from Yudhisthir will be enough to release Him from your clutches as I send you to the clutches of Yama . “

The attempt by Duryodhan to create Vidweshan through mantras given by durvasa and Shukracharya did not have any effect on Bheemsen . As Bheemsen was reciting Manyusukta . Even while killing Duryodhan Bheemsen recited Vrushabh sukta as Duryodhan was chanting 3 crores of mantras all at once onto Bheemsena .. This goes on to show that one must always protect oneself from enemies .

In Ramayana Agastya muni asks Lord Shri Rama as to how he manages to keep his siblings so dear to him , how come there never has been a squabble between them and why when enemies in this world are always attempting to dismantle a family harmony , what is a secret to his happy family . Shri Rama says . Kshama is the only mantra for keeping the family intact , one must always forgive severest of severest mistakes of brother and he will ever remain loving to the all . Else a small angry rift will make enemies take advantage and sow seeds of enmity among brothers . That is the reason why Rama did not kill Vali at the first instance giving a chance to the siblings to come to terms as brothers are naturally born of same blood and hence sibling fraternity can arouse any moment . One must never fight with younger brothers and treat them like one’s own son .


Maryada Purushottam Ram

Bhagwaan Ramchandra , the son of Dasharath ,the very God has enacted many leelas [ acts that creat illusions in the minds of people] . All through the avatara Lord illustrated how a ideal human should live a life .Though he remained as simple as manushya , people extoled him as Maryada Purushottam Ram .Contrarily in Krishnaavatara however Lord showed his prowess as divine people dismissed him as just a Kshatriya or Yadav.

Yet certain incidents in Ramayana clearly depicted his divine nature

  1. Vishwamitra asking Dasharath to send Ram to kill the rakshas [ These rakshasas could not be killed by Dasharath or any other kings nor could they be destroyed by the curse of Vishwamitra ]
  2. Breaking Shiva Dhanush [ The whole world could not even lift the dhanush , but mere touch of Ram broke the bow]
  3. Fight ensuing between Parshuram and RAM [ both are vishnu ] they appeared to be different and fought to create illusion.
    • Because , once there  was a demon named Atul ,he completed great penance and asked Bramha a boon that he wants to pervade the entire universe. As only Lord Vishnu alone can pervade entire universe , Bramha asked him to stay in a PArshuram’s stomach . But he could pervade entire universe only till he does not think Vishnu as seperate from himself. ie There is no difference between Vishnu and his avataras and there is no difference among avataras as well .
    • As fight ensued between the Parshuraam and Ram , Parshuram enacted to be very angry with Ram as he was Kshatriya and also he broke the Shiva Dhanush which was given by Parshuram .
    • But Ram seemed to vanquish Parshuram and as astras flew towards Parshuram and Parshuram showed himself weak against it , Atul inside starteed fearing for his life and contemplated that Parshuram was different from Ram and he would die if any astra hits Parshuram.This contemplation killed Atul and put a stop to his allpervasiveness.
  4. Accepting exile on Father’s words rejecting coronation
  5. Relieving Ahalya from the curse of Gautam by mere touch of his toe.[ clearly divine]
    • Not only Ahalya had shap vimochan ,this was simply not enough ; Gautam had cursed her in anger , she needed her husband’s love and affection too mere restoration of body was not enough . {INDRA particularly had requested to restore love and affection between the couples]
    • Story goes , in olden days all the men and women were born equally beautiful and had same features common and equal . Thus there was no jealousy or misery owing to possession of beauty.
    • Bramha once insoected all the creatures looking alike , he felt bored and created a uniquely beautiful woman called Ahalya . everyone was amused by this new beauty and were secretly hoping to marry her.
    • Bramha after long thought called upon Gaitam to look after his new creation carefully till he finalises on the groom for her.Gautam took care of his new guest but never lusted her .
    • Impressed by the Gautam’s dedication and indriya nigraha , Bramha gave her in marriage to Gautam .
    • Gautam had amassed a lot of punya by that time , this would hamper his chances of gaining Mukti . Those who have excess punya have to lose their punya either  by giving away the punya or losing it by misdeeds.
    • Indra hoping to bestow mercy on Gautam , planned to annoy him , he induced feeling of having enjoyed Ahalya in Gautam in wee hours , when he appeared in the guise of Gautam leaving his house.
    • Gautam cursed Indra to have multiple eyes all over his body .
    • Gautam cursed Ahalya [ who had not defaulted at all] to be a stone .
    • GAutam lost interest in the world and went away to forest for penance.
    • Gautam had lost his punya by cursing elders like INDRA.
    • Indra though not at fault had indeed felt bad for Gautam and recommended Ram  to restore love between the couples.[ love between the couples is not a independent feature of humans , even this is also dependent on God], if God wishes two people can always be locked in love]
    • But past incidents can disturb this peace and loving disposition , so INdra asked Lord Ram to give Gautam a vismarana [ forgeting ;selective amnesia] about this incident.
    • This incident shows how merciful lord Ram is !!!!
  6. Using RAM BANA on a crow because it hurt his wife Seeta on the breast.
  7. Running after Golden deer [ even though everyone knows such a deer does not exist ] and weeping for Seeta [ abducted]
    • There were few rakshasa who had done great tapasya and asked Bramha that they wanted to achieve Moksha .
    • Bramha granted they will achieve their goals only when they do not assume seperation [VIYOGA] between LAxmi and Vishnu
    • Laxmi Vishnu are AVIYOGI according to the VEDAS . LAxmi always resides on the chest of NARAYANA as  mole named Srivatsa ! Both Laxmi And Vishnu are equal in space as they occupy every part of the universe and space [ both vyakta and avyakta AKAASHA]
    • Thus Laxmi and Vishnu are never seperated from each other ;
    • Thus Narayana is known as SRIDHAR and Laxmi is known as AMBHRANI as they are never for a moment without each other’s company.
    • Thus even when Ravan took [sitakruti] , seetha was still with RAM as Srivatsa .
    • Ram never missed his wife , but he enacted as a grief stricken man asking trees and clouds and lakes about the whereabouts of his wife Seeta.
    • This generated the doubt in the minds of the demons that Ram and seeta had seperated and they were not divine but mere humans who cry at mere separations and long for union. This thought entitled these demons perish from the path of moksha .
  8. Hitting Dundhubhi with toe touch;
  9. Piercing seven zigzag Tad Vrakshas with one arrow
  10. Sitting before the Ocean to ask for a way .
  11. Showing anger on the ocean to dry up if not appeared .
  12. Building a bridge [ every stone scribed RAM floated on the water]
    • All the monkeys were writing RAM on the stones and it floated on the water to be cemented for the bridge.
    • Looking at this RAM lord took one stone and threw it the ocean , it sank .
    • STrange , you write his name ,it has a power to float ,but he himself throws it does not float
    • some say RAM naam is more powerful than RAM
    • This is faulty thinking .
    • Hanuman explains : BY taking the name of RAM we can float in the ocean named samsara [ jeevan maran] and reach the shore named Moksha [ Vaikuntha]; But if ,such lord Ram himself leaves his hand [support] onto us , then we are sure to be drowned in this samsara without recourse. Thus one must always engage in RAM NAMA!!!
  13. Making a saashtanga Namaskara to Ravana
    • RAvana was a bramhin and learned , Lord made  sashtanga namaskara to illustrate ,all bramhins are respectable irrespective of nature.
    • When elders make a sashtanga to the lesser ones , their longevity is reduced .
    • Ram the lord is the greatest GOD , ravana is a mere soul , only GOD has right to the namaskar , thus by this namaskar Ravans punya was absorbed by the lord and his longevity nullified .
  14. War with Ravana
    • Ravana with the boon of bramha had 10 to the power of 32  clones equally powerfull as Ravan hidden in a cave.
    • They all came out of the cave and ran towards the Lord RAM to attack him
    • RAM seemed to be still without movement ,yet all the clones of RAVAN died one after the other with arrows even before they emerged from the cave
    • Hanuman explains ; RAM was so fast in leaving arrows that it defied persistence of vision , thus he appeared still , yet within 1/10 of the second he applied crores of arrows to kill 100000000………….00000(32 zeros) in few minutes.Yet he appeared to others as if he was still doing nothing.
  15. Agni PAriksha :
    • Ravana had never abducted real seeta he had abducted Seetakrutii ,enacted by INdra and Agni [ with Vedavati as instrumental Seeta].
    • HAving accepted it Ram  would have accepted a different woman .
    • Thus Agnipariksha was enacted to exchange it with original seeta who was his Wife .
    • Had Laxmidevi [ Seeta ] were to be in Lanka , Lanka would never have vanquished or Ravan would never have been defeated . Where there is Laxmi[ jaya laxmi ,vijayalaxmi etc] there cannot be defeat and misfortunes. Thus LAxmi could not have been abducted by Ravan to face misfortune.
    • Ram with Seeta ruled Ayodhya for 13000 years.RamRajya.

!!Ram rameti rame raame manorame sahasra naam tulyam tannamparanane!!


Let sri MoolRama bless all of us on this auspicious day of RAMNAVAMI .
