Akarathil amaintha Anantha Ramayanam
Taken from Kumudam Bhakthi (7/4/2016)
(Here is a summary of Ramayanam in Tamil, with each word of the summary starting wit letter “aa”.)
Ananthane asurarkalai azhithu ,
1.Anbarkalukku arula avaniyil,
Ayothi arasanaaga avatharithaan,
Appothu Arikku aranaaka Aranin amsamai,
Anumanum avatharithathaaka arikirom.
Andru anjanai avanikku alitha,
Anbalippu allavo Anuman? Avane ,
Arivazakan , anbazhakan , Anbarkalai ,
Aravanaithu arulum arut chelvan .
1.For showering his grace on those who love him,
By destroying the asuras , The endless lord himself,
Was born in this world as the king of Ayodhya.
Then to help to that Vishnu , as an incarnation of Lord Shiva ,
WE understand that Hanuman was also born in this world.
Is not Hanuman the gift given by Anjana to the earth then,
He himself is the wise beauty , the beauty with love and is he not,
The graceful lord who hugs his devotees and protects them.
2.Ayothi adaleru , ammithilai arasavayil ,
Arasanin ariya villai adakki, anbum,
Adakkmum angangalaaga amaintha,
Azhakiyai adainthan. Ariyanayil ,
Amarum arukathai annanaagiya ,
Anantha Ramanukke . Appadiyirukka antho,
Akakikeyi asooyayaal Ayothi,
Arasanukkum adangaamal aniyayamaaga ,
Avanai aranyathukku anuppinaal.
2.That lion of war of Ayodhya , controlled ,
The rare bow of the bow of the king of Mithila.
And got the beauty whose limbs were ,
Love as well as humility .
The right to sit on the throne was for,
The Anantha Raman who was the eldest brother.
When it was like that alas , that Kaikeyi ,
Due to jealousy without becoming ,
Submissive even to the king of Ayodhya ,
With great injustice sent him to the forest.
3.Adaviyulum apaayam , arakkarkalin,
Arasan , annayil azhakaal arivu yizhanthu,
Abalayai apakarithaan, adasamukhanin ,
Akkiramangalukku , attozhiyangalukku,
Alavillai. Ayothi annal ,
Abnnai angirunthu agandrathaal adaintha ,
Anumanum , anaivarum ariyai adi paninthu,
Avanaye adaikkalamaaga adainthanar.
3.Even in the forest there was danger.
The king of Rakshasas losing his brain ,
Due to the beauty of the mother,
Kidnapped that helpless lady.
There was no limit to the evil acts,
As well as trouble some acts of the ten faced one.
And there was no limit to the sorrow of the Lord,
Of Ayodhya due to the mother going away from there.
And at that time Hanuman and all the people ,
Fell at the feet of Lord Vishnu and surrendered to him.
4.Antha adiyaarul arukathayulla anbanai ,
Arasanaaga ariyanayil amarthinar .Aduthu,
Annaikkaaka avvanarar anaivarum,
Avaniyil angum ingum alainthanar,
Alasinar.Anuman alai kadalai alatchiyamaaga ,
Adiyeduthu alanthu akkarayai adainthan.
Asoka marathin adiyil arakkikal ,
Amarthithirukka, annayai adi paninthu,
Akkanayaazhiyai aval idam alithan.
4.Then they crowned one among those devotees,
Who was suitable and placed him there,
And all those monkeys for the sake of the mother.
Wandered here and there all over the earth and searched.
Hanuman without botheration took a few steps ,
Over the ocean with waves and reached the other shore,
When the Rakshasis were sitting there , he saluted the feet,
Of the mother and gave her the signet ring,
Which was the symbol of the lord.
5.Annai anubavitha alavatha avathikal,
Anbayum arulaasiyaiyum akkaname ,
Adainthan anuman. Aduthu,
Arakkarkalai alara adithu avarkalin,
Arangalai aganthaikalai adiyodu,
Akkiniyaal azhitha anumanin
Attahasam, asathiyamana athisakasam.
5.Most of the sufferings of the mother ,
Were put out and he immediately got ,
The love and grace of the mother and then,
He made the rakshasas suffer and destroyed,
By fire their protections as well as their pride completely,
And this was an impossible valorous act of Hanuman .
6.Anantharaman alai kadalin adhipathiyai,
Adakki , athisayamana anayai amaithu,
Akkarayai adainthaan, Athasamuka,
Arakkanai amaril ayanin asthirathaal
Azhithaan. Akkiniyil ayaraamal arpanitha,
Annayaval athi arputhamai annalai,
ADainthu ariyanayil amarnthu arulinaan.
6.Then that endless Rama subdued the king of ocean,
And after building a wonderful bridge, reached the other shore,
And destroyed that ten headed Rakshasa using Brahmastra,
And when without hesitation the mother fell in to the fire ,
And she was not harmed in a wonderful manner ,
And he made the mother his own and then,
After reaching Ayodhya with the mother ,
He occupied the throne there
7. AnnalAnantha Ramanin avathara,
Arum kathai akarathile adukkadukkaka,
Amainthathu , anumanin arulaale ,
Avan adi archippom , Anaithayum ,
Aruiduvaan anbarin agam arinthe.
Due to the blessings of Hanuman the story,
Of The Lord got written down one after another,
With all words starting in letter “aa.”
We would worship his feet and knowing well,
The mind of devotes , he would fulfill all their wishes,
