 The Glory of Rama Nama - Sri Sri Swamiji


Sri Sri Swamiji has recently composed a simple yet wonderful Kirtan on the glory of the 'Divine Name' - the 'Rama Nama'.  Giving illustrations of how, through Rama Nama, great Mahans accomplished insurmountable tasks in this worldly life, as well as attained liberation, this Kirtan in sweet Tamil Language, boldly proclaims that singing the Holy Name is the only way out in the Kali Yuga, forgetting which one is doomed!

The Kirtan in Tamil, its transliteration in English and explanation in English are presented here.  Above all, a video clipping  of Sri Sri Swamiji rendering the Kirtan himself is also available.

The Kirtan is in the tune of "Neelamegha Shyamala roopa Gopala..."

ராம நாமம் சொல்வதே கலியில் கதியாம்!
அதையும் மறந்தால் அதோ கதியாம்!

ராம நாமம் சொல்ல சொல்ல நன்மை பெருகுமே! - நாவும் இனிக்குமே!
பாமரன் முதல் பண்டிதன் வரை புனிதம் ஆக்குமே!

சிவனும் பார்வதியும் சொல்லும் நாமமாம்!
கவலையை போக்கி சாந்தி நல்குமாம்!

ராம நாமம் சொல்லி அனுமன் கடலைத் தாண்டினான்! - மலையை தூக்கினான்!
மலை போன்ற கவலையும் பனி போல் விலகுமாம்!

ராம நாமம் சொல்லி சபரி முக்தி எய்தினாள்!
நாமமும் நாமியும் வேறு வேறு இல்லவே இல்லையாம்!

ராம நாமம் சொல்வதற்கு எந்த தடையும் இல்லையாம்!
சொல்ல சொல்லச் தடைகள் எல்லாம் தானே விலகுமாம்!

The Holy Name is complete in itself. Repeating the Name is verily meditation. The ecstacy experienced out of it is verily Samadhi.
