यावत् स्तास्यन्ति गिरयः सरितश्च महीतले
तावद् रामायणकथा लोकेषु प्रचरिष्यति
yāvat stāsyanti girayaḥ saritaśca mahītale
tāvad rāmāyaṇakathā lokeṣu pracariṣyati
യാവത് സ്ഥാസ്യന്തി ഗിരയ : സരിതശ്ച മഹീതലേ
താവത് രാമായണകഥാ ലോകേഷു പ്രചരിഷ്യതി
as long as there exist on the face of this earth the mountains and rivers till then the story of Ramayanam will be established here.
my respected friends, this is a repetition. not exactly because I have gone dry of themes.. From today onwards, for the month of Karkidakam, we pay tribute that great epic Ramayanam...It is the living monument of the purity, loftiness, truth and all that is great for which our Bharathavarsha stood for. Ramayanam is not a fiction, not a string of words, not merely the worship of the parabrahmam in mortal human form but it is a testament of faith for an Indian. We believe there was a millenium here which stood for dharma alone, and the everlasting promise of hope that even though truth and virtue may be eclipse for a limited period, great values always triumph in the end. Let me quot a beautiful couplet from Valmiki ramayanam
स रामः पर्णशालायं आसीनः सह सीतया
विरराज महाबाहुः चित्रया चन्द्रमा इव
sa rāmaḥ parṇaśālāyaṁ āsīnaḥ saha sītayā
virarāja mahābāhuḥ citrayā candramaa iva
the man born to be the emperor of the world, Rama, along with Sita the Goddess of wealth incarnate, sat in a hut made of wild leaves and they radiated their brillianace like the full moon in chaitra...where the constellation of chitra stars come in union with the full moon in vasntha rtu. Yes, the greatest ever born took this form only to uphold dharma, no, he is the embodiment of dharma
रामो विग्रहवान् धर्मः
rāmo vigrahavān dharmaḥ
may the mere utterance of the name of that Lord of Lords, wash away all our sins and establish dharma in this world.
