Lord Rama’s Birth Day – Sri Rama Navami- falls on 28th March 2015. Some decades ago all children were taught by their parents or grandparents a simple Ramayana hymn. This made the Ramayana impressed in their minds like an inscription on a stone. With Ramayana strongly imbedded in their mind, they remembered the great values Rama stood for.

The rhyme and rhythm in the Sanskrit verse made it easy to remember. Moreover it was taught in a particular tune. When elders or guests visit the house, parents used to ask their children to recite it to get a big applause from the visitors.

Let those golden days come back once again!

Here is One Minute Ramayana in just four lines:–

Adhau Rama Tapovanan adhigamanam, Hatva mrugam kanchanam,

Vaidehi haranam, Jatayu maranam, Sugreeva sambashanam

Vali nigrahanam, Samudra taranam, Lankapuri Dahanam

Paschad Ravana Kumbakarna hananam cha etat iti Ramayanam

In the beginning Rama went to the forest

He killed the Golden Deer

Sita/Vaidehi was kidnapped

Jatayu was killed

Sugreeva had talks with Rama

Vali was killed

Sea was crossed (by Hanuman)

Lanka was burnt

Later Ravana and Kumbakarna were too killed

This is Ramayana!
