Ramanavami Parayanam of Ramayana-Periyavaa recommendation

Ramanavami  Parayanam  of Ramayana-Periyavaa  recommendation 

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander








   It is a normal practice to read    the eighteenth chapter    of Bala Kanda   of Valmiki Ramayana   which deals    with birth, Namakarana   and education of Rama  . But in web site  http://valmikiramayanam.in/?p=2032 it has been mentioned that  Maha Periyavaa   had told   that   what is needed to be read is only  the fifteen slokas   of Eighteenth   chapter  of Bala Kanda  of Valmiki Ramayana. These   are given in Sanskrit  in the above web site , To those   who may not know how to read Sanskrit  , I am giving below the   Dhyana  Slokas    as well as    the  above 15 slokas    in english along  with English meaning.  Let Lord Rama bless you


As soon as   you are ready   to do the parayana  first    you have two chant two dhyana  slokas 

1.Vaidehi sahitham surudrumathale haime maha mandape,
Madhye pushpaka masane mani maye veerasane susthitham,
Aagre vaachayathi prabhanjana suthe thathwam muneebhya param,
Vyakhyaantham Barathathibhi parivrutham Raamam bhaje syamalam.

I salute that black coloured Rama,
Who sits along with daughter of Videha,
And in the company of Baratha and others,
Inside the golden shed beneath the holy tree of Karpaga,
On the seat of flowers bedecked with jewels,
Built in its centre,
Explaining the essence of knowledge,
To the assembled sages,
And to the son of Anjana.

2. Sri Ramachandrasritha   sadgurunaam  .
Padaravindam    bhajathaam naraanaam  ,
Aarogyam Aiswaryam   Anantha keerthi,
Anthe cha vishno padamasthi sathyam

If men  sing  about the lotus like feet ,
Of the Sadguru who has submitted  to Ramachandra,
They would be healthy   wealthy  and get endless fame  ,
And at the end   truly they will attain the feet of  Lord Vishnu

Then you have to chant  the following  slokas   from Chapter 18   of Bala Kanda   of Valmiki Ramayana
