The nectar of Rama Bhakti


Sri:
Srimathe Ramanujaya Nama:

Priya arangan adiyars,

Our age oscillates between the frustration born out of excessive indulgence in worldly affairs, and the stagnation born out of a misguided renunciation. To remove the darkness of this age, Svami Ramanuja taught the deep secret of Vedanta which is Bhakti to redeem the people. Bhakti is the loving service of the Supreme Person (Paramapurusha) through all means available to the soul. Bhakti is the fruit of the Lord’s activity itself. It is created and nurtured by the waters of His auspicious attributes (Kalyana Guna). It is to display that the Lord incarnates and drenches His devotees in the waters of His Kalyana Gunas which in-turn lead to the inculcation of Bhakti.  Lord Rama is an excellent example of His incarnation where He won over the hearts of all people by simply displaying His auspicious qualities. We see that even His sworn enemies like Ravana praise His qualities. Such was His influence that He easily aroused Bhakti in several devotees. Sri Ramayana itself is called ‘Floodwater of Bhakti’ or bhakti-vellam by Thiruvarangaththu Amudhanar.

Lord Rama’s qualities have held their impact into Kali Yuga. Across the length and breadth of the country, several saints have emerged in different times captivated by the auspicious glories of Lord Rama.

Through the grace of Lord Rama, who walked the expanse of this country, Sri Ramayana is now walking the expanse of the world through the Sri Ramayana Contest conducted by Srimaan Trust. Spanning ten (10) countries including the UK, Australia and the USA, the Contest was conducted both inside and outside India. Over fifty thousand
​ (50,000) students
​​
participated at
​450 centres in Bharat(India) only​
. Many students scored excellent scores and tie-breakers had to be used to resolve the proficient performance. Transcending language, the Contest was conducted in s
​ix(6)​
languages like English, Tamizh, Hindi, Telugu
​, Malyalam and Kannadam.​


The promise of Brahma echoes in our ears,

yāvat sthāsyanti girayaḥ yāvat saritaśca mahītale |
tāvad-rāmāyaṇakathā lokeṣu pracariṣyati ||

"As long as the mountains stand and so long as the rivers run on this great earth, the legend of Sri Ramayana will nourish all the worlds (with Bhakti)."
