On the occasion of Shri Rama Navami, I am rendering this shloka on Sri Rama, in this post. May the Lord bless us all with Wellness and Prosperity.
Once Goddess Parvati asked Lord Shiva thus:
kEnOpaayEna laghuna viShnOrnamasahasrakam
paThyate paNDitairnityam shrOtumichchaami prabhO||
Meaning: I would like to listen to that abridged form of Vishnu Sahasranaamam, which is sung by the Saints and Scholars, each day.
As a reply, Shiva said ‘The only divine name of Lord Rama benefits a devotee with all that VishnuSahasranaama(the thousand names of Vishnu) bestows him/her with”, quoting the Stotra below:
shrI raama raama rAmEti ramE raame manOramE
sahasranaama tattulyam rAma nAma varAnane||
Thus is the power of the divine name of Lord Rama.
Happy Ramanavami Festival to all the Viewers :)
