raamaayanamahaanadee...

वात्मीकिगिरिसंभूता रामसागरगामिनी। 
पुनातु भुवनं पुण्या रामायणमहानदी॥
(वाल्मीकि is the correct usage as per majority view )


വാല്മീകി എന്ന മലയില്‍ ഉത്ഭവിച്ചു രാമന്‍ എന്ന സമുദ്രത്തില്‍ ഒഴുകിച്ചേരുന്ന രാമായണം എന്ന വലിയ നദി ഈ ഭൂമിയെ മുഴുവന്‍ പു ണ്യം കൊണ്ട് നിറയ്ക്കുന്നു ..നിറച്ചും കൊണ്ടേയിരിക്കട്ടേ
vātmīkigirisaṁbhūtā rāmasāgaragāminī| 
punātu bhuvanaṁ puṇyā rāmāyaṇamahānadī||
the Sacred River that is Ramayanam, 
which originates in the mountain names Vaalmiki 
and flows into the ocean which is none other than Rama Himself, may purify the entire world.. the entire earth with all its beauty..
Today starts the Month of Ramayanam.. 
The entire spirit of Ramayanam is eulogized in the above simple slokam..
The story of Rama is sacred for all.. even beyond religious boundaries.. 
For the South Asian Continent, Ramayana is a proud chronicle of a glorious past.. 
For everyone who is looking up for an ideal human being whose life he wants to emulate, Rama is always the first choice..
For efficiency, determination, strength and steadfastness, Hanuman is the ultimate benchmark
And for all that is pure, sweet and delicate and merciful mother Sita is the standard
And Ramayana is the Story, of these three and many others ..
For the lovers of Sanskrit, Ramayanam is the first ever Kaavyam, the beacon-light of enlightenment
It is time to pay our respects to the great poet, his sublime creation and to Rama, Sita and Lord Anjaneya too
for Sanskrit lovers
