Reciting rAma nAmA will remove all problems.
Why recite words which we don't understand?
Why recite words whose pronunciation we may not know.
Sri rAma jaya rAma jaya jaya rAma is the best prayer!
Thank you Madam, I do Rama nama japa on Ekadashi days,
I shall look up your Sanskrit -Tamil dictionary for this.
Wish you well and Namaskars.

Sir,
You have given the second line of 53rd verse and the first line of verse 54 as far as I can see. Here are the verses in Devanagiri script.

वृषणः शंकरो नित्यंवर्चस्वी धूमकेतनः
नीलस्तथांगलुब्धश्च शोभनो निरवग्रह: ॥ ५३॥
स्वस्तिदः स्वस्तिभावश्च भागी भागकरो लघुः ।
उत्संगश्च महांगश्च महागर्भप्रायणः ॥ ५४ ॥

The introduction to this blog of 216 Tamil poems and their stories in English.
Incidentally this happens to my very first blog since I thought I had something to share.


ஆன்மீகத் தேடலில் நான் கண்டு எடுத்த சில அரிய முத்துக்களே நீங்கள் காணப்போகும் எனது கருத்துக்கள்.

படிக்க நேரம் இல்லாததால் சிலரும், புரிந்து கொள்ள முடியாததால் சிலரும், சரியான குரு கிடைக்காததால் சிலரும் இந்த அரிய கருத்துக்களை அறியாமல் இருக்கலாம். இறைவன் அருளால் எனக்கு நேரமும் உள்ளது. நல்ல குருவும் கிடைத்தார். நான் பெற்ற இன்பம் பெருக இவ்வையகம் என்று முனைந்து இவற்றை உங்களுக்கு அளிக்கின்றேன். கருத்து பரிமாற்றங்களும் (கருத்து யுத்தங்களும் கூட) வரவேற்கப்படுகின்றன.

என்றோ விதையாக ஒளிந்திருந்த என் எழுதும் திறனை,
அன்றே கண்டு கொண்ட என் தந்தை டாக்டர் ராமனுக்கும்;
இன்றுவரை என்னை ஊக்குவித்து, உற்சாகப்படுத்தி வரும்
அன்னை திருமதி மீனாள் ராமனுக்கும் இந்நூல் சமர்ப்பணம்.

திருத்தி, மெருகேற்றிக் கொடுத்த அன்புத் தங்கை
திருமதி (கவிஞர்) ராஜி ராம் அவர்களுக்கும்,
பொருத்தி வலையில் அழகுற அமைத்துத் தந்த,
மருமகள் ரூபா ராமனுக்கும் நன்றிகள் பலப்பல.

இள வயதிலேயே இறைவனிடம் பக்தியையும்,
வளம் கொழிக்கும் இனிய கர்நாடக இசையையும்,
கணித, ஆங்கில இலக்கணத்துடன் கலந்தூட்டிய,
கண் போன்ற என் தாத்தா திரு K.R.நாராயணனுக்கு
எண்ணிலடங்காத நன்றிகளும், வந்தனங்களும்,
என் வாழ்நாட்கள் உள்ளளவும் உரித்தாகுக!

முதல் முறையாக ஆன்மீகத்தில் நுழைபவர்களுக்கு,
முதல்பகுதியில் உள்ளவை கடினமாகத் தோன்றலாம்.
முறையை மாற்றி, இறுதியில் இருந்து படிக்கத் தொடங்கி,
முயன்று நான் அளித்தவற்றை, எளிமையாக ரசிக்கலாமே!

வாழ்க வளமுடன்,
உங்கள் உண்மையுள்ள ,
விசாலாக்ஷி ரமணி.

A proverb a day to brighten the day!

595a. Ausgeben ohne zu verdienen kann nicht lange dauern.

Nothing amassed by man is infinite or inexhaustible.
Sooner or later it will all be spent ...
unless we keep on adding more to it!

zu verdienen = earning
kann = can
nicht = not

Something...Something!

Some things never change with time.
Some things should never change with time.

"Please" cannot be replaced by any other fancy word.
"Thank you" can not replaced by a more magical word.
"I love you" can not be replaced by a more sincere word.

Courtesy and culture do not change with time.
Customs may but courtesy remains the same.

Respect for elders does not change with time
Gratitude for others does not change wit time.

In other words the basic human values remain the same all over the world at all times.
Calling people who are courteous and courageous as old fashioned in sheer nonsense.

Something...Something!

There are two distinct group of people everywhere in everything.
Half the population is always worried about its good (?) health.
The other half never bother about its bad health - until it can't be ignored anymore.

I had a neighbor an old gentleman who just dropped dead near the bathroom door in the middle of a night. His good wife go worried that he did not come back from the toilet.

She got the shock of her life seeing him lying lifeless near the bathroom.
Both of these are equally bad - though in in different ways and for different reasons.

The creaking door get lubricated. When something starts creaking it is better to attend to it than let it alter one's beautiful life to one's ugly death.

The introduction to My second blog of English articles
which were prepared for The Young world of The Hindu.

The world we live in, is filled with marvelous things, both God-made and man-made. If we retain our childlike curiosity, we can still wonder at hundreds of things around us.


I try to admire these and want you too to do so. So this is just an attempt to impress you with what impressed me in the first place.

I have written articles on 261 topics under 18 different subheadings-so that every one is sure to find something interesting to read!

Happy reading! Send back your comments and suggestions!

#01. An Introduction​

The first of its kind.

Necessity is the mother of invention. Modesty also at times becomes the mother of invention-as in the case of the stethoscope.Nothing was invented and perfected at the same time.

So when we take a look at the original versions of the various inventions, we can’t help admiring and registering how much they have been improved to get the current versions!

Human mind can think only in steps and not in leaps and bounds! So every practical problem will be set right giving the next improved product. This goes on and on!

Well, this is not the end either! The future will have much more improvised products for the convenience of the people.

In this blog let us take a look at what made these inventions and discoveries necessary and how they have evolved over the time.

Something....Something!

Something out of the ordinary is a terrible warning issued by the human body.
Most of us tend to ignore them and put off the diagnosis and treatment ALAP!

Two people in the family circle have come down to half their original & normal weight.
It could not have happened overnight on in a matter of a few days or even weeks.

Instead of finding what had gone wrong, they both chose to ignore the problem until it has become impossible to be treated and cured.

Human body speaks a silent language. It sends out signals whenever something is wrong. It is wisdom to be alert, listen to the warning and do what is necessary ASAP!

#02. An Introduction​

SPIRIT AND SUCCESS

Geniuses are few and far between! It has been already proved that genes have nothing to do with genes. Even the home atmosphere may or may not contribute the achievements of a person.

Surprisingly even physical challenges and mental disabilities did not seem to dampen their spirit to succeed!

An ordinary man may accept his lot, wallow in self pity, demand sympathy from everyone in his circle and become a parasite for life.

But those persons were determined to win in spite of every physical challenge and restriction placed on them by the cruel hands of Fate.

In this thread we will look into a few of those great men and women who have risen above their disabilities and made an indelible mark in the history of human achievements- a sheer success due to their indomitable spirit.

Something...Something!

Human body if often compared to a dress worn by the soul.
A soul takes on a new body just like a man wear a new dress.

When the dress gets very old, the man tosses it away and wears a new dress.
The soul drops down the old worn out body, takes a new body and lives on!

Now the reverse has started happening.
Just like old clothes are repaired, restored and reused
the old worn out human bodies are repaired and restored for reuse.

It is a good idea but it fails when the dress is damaged beyond repairs.
So also it fails when the body has got damaged far beyond repairs.

ONE must use one's discretion and decide
as to when to toss off the old worn out dress
and when to 'let go' a suffering human being.

#03. An Introduction

Accident is an unplanned incident.

One of the (N.R.I) swamis defined an accident very differently. He said that when two persons or vehicles A and B try to be at at the same point P at the same time T an accident takes place. He was absolutely correct.

Accidents occurring in man’s life may be unpleasant and scary…but not necessarily always!

When the right things come together at the right place under the right conditions at the right time, a lucky accident happens!

Some of the best discoveries have resulted from unforeseen and unplanned experiments-so to say accidents!

They have later been proved to be ‘Lucky Accidents’.
Let us view at some of the many lucky accidents.
