Ramayana 1st Sloka from Valmiki has a beautiful Story.. Do you know? Two meaning in one sloka...

Bhrigu rishi incarnated himself as hunter under a name "rukshun" in a forest.

Birthplace is today's small city named anbil near trichy, tamilnadu)

Narada muni appeared before him and blessed him to chant rama mantra.

Hunter who is tamil origin, struggled to chant 'rama' as tamil by its original form don't have words starts with "r". (Even now tamil scholars say ram as erama, ravanan as eravanan)

Understanding the challenge the hunter facing, narada asked "what is this?" by showing a tree.

He replied "mara". (Mara is tamil language)

Narada smiled and asked him to chant "mara mara mara".

Hunter continued chanting "mara mara mara" which became "rama rama rama.."

With the blessing of Narada, by continuously chanting "rama rama.." for years, brahma appeared and called him "valmiki".

Hunter became a muni

Brahma asked to write a detailed story of Rama as it is, who is live at present and who himself is the avatar of Vishnu.

Immediately, his wife saraswathi appeared and blessed him to become a great poetry writer.

Valmiki movies to region near thamasa river.

Valmiki who is a muni didn't had any love or hate in this materialistic world.

But, suddenly he felt attracted by seeing the nature beauty.

His heart became poetic and felt so enchanted looking at the world..

Valmiki himself was surprised to see these changes inside him.

But he did knew that he is getting prepared to write Epic Ramayana.

One day, while valmiki was roaming around the forest, he saw pair of birds happily playing with each other..

Valmiki was looking at these birds happily.

Suddenly a hunter nearby throwed an arrow and killed the male bird...

The female bird seeing his partner bird getting killed, shouted, jumped and cried...

This incident extremely disturbed valmiki and he got angry on that hunter...

Immediately, he cursed him by saying 

मा निषाद प्रतिष्ठांत्वम् 

अगमः शाश्वतीं समाः |

यत् क्रौञ्च मिथुनात्  एकम्  

अवधीः काम मोहितम् ||

- वाल्मीकि रामायण

The meaning of above sloka, as understood by valmiki himself is..

Hey Hunter (निषाद)! By killing (अवधीः) one of this paired birds (यत् क्रौञ्चमिथुनात् एकम्), who were immersed in love (काम मोहितम्), you will not attain (मा अगमः) everlasting (शाश्वतीं समाः) divine sanctity (प्रतिष्ठांत्वम्

After cursing that hunter, valmiki reached his ashram.

He felt bad about himself as he could not control his anger.


he felt surprised on how with so much anger mindset, he cursed that hunter in poetry form instead as prose form?

By knowing that he is going to write story of rama, he felt extremely worried, that his 1st sloka unfortunately came as a curse.

He felt disturbed at one side, and felt excited to see such a beautiful poem came out of his mouth.

He felt, it is a blessing of narada, brahma and saraswathi.

To clarify his doubts brahma appeared again in front of valmiki.

Valmiki explained the incident and also the sloka which came out from his mouth as curse.

Brahma said,

"Valmiki! The sloka you have recited looks like a curse for you.. but it is a perfect alika to start to write this epic story of rama.

I will explain the actual meaning of this sloka.. 

You have recited sloka as:

मा निषाद प्रतिष्ठांत्वम् अगमः शाश्वतीं समाः |

यत् क्रौञ्च मिथुनात्  एकम्  अवधीः काम मोहितम् ||

- वाल्मीकि रामायण

But, while understanding its meaning, you have connected 1st word "मा" with "अगमः".

That is,

निषाद प्रतिष्ठांत्वम् मा अगमः शाश्वतीं समाः |

यत् क्रौञ्चमिथुनात्  एकम्  अवधीः काम मोहितम् ||

- वाल्मीकि रामायण

It is ok to shift words and connect with other words in sanskrit... But it is not required to connect "मा" with "अगमः" here. 

Meaning can be understood directly by reading मा निषाद alone. 

मा means mahalakshmi (other meaning is 'not')

निषाद means stay//reside/keep (other meaning is hunter)

क्रौञ्च means raakshas (other meaning is bird)

Here is your sloka meaning.

Hey Vishnu who keeps Mahalakshmi in his heart (मा निषाद)! By killing (अवधीः) a raakshas (यत् क्रौञ्चमिथुनात् एकम्) who was immersed in love (काम मोहितम्), you will attain (मा अगमः) everlasting (शाश्वतीं समाः) divine sanctity (प्रतिष्ठांत्वम्

It does not look like a curse, but a perfect intro sloka to bless vishnu for your ramayana epic.

Thus explained brahma and blessed him to write entire story of rama in poetry form.

Jai Sriram... Jai Sriram...

நமோ என்றால் என்ன? தெரிந்து கொள்வோமே!

"நமோ" என்றால் என்ன? 

'நம:' என்பதே நமோ என்று சொல்கிறோம். 

நம: என்ற சொல், "நான்(ம) எனக்கு இல்லை (ந)" என்று அர்த்தத்தை கொடுக்கிறது.

நம: என்ற சொல், "நான் எனக்கு சொந்தம் இல்லை. நான் பரமாத்மாவுக்கே சொந்தமானவன்" என்ற சரணாகதி புத்தியை கொடுக்கும்.

நம: என்ற சொல் "நான் வாகனம் மட்டுமே. என்னை சாரதியாக இருந்து ஓட்டுபவன் அந்த பார்த்தசாரதியே" என்ற சரணாகதி புத்தியை கொடுக்கும். 

நம: என்ற அக்ஷரத்தின் அர்த்தம் புரிந்து, உணர்ந்து கொள்ளும் போது தான், 

'இனி நாமாக எந்த முயற்சியும் செய்யாமல்.. என்னை சேர்த்து கொள்ள வேண்டிய முயற்சியை பரமாத்மாவே செய்யட்டும். 

என்னை ரக்ஷிக்கும் பொறுப்பு அவர் கையில் இருக்கும் போது, நானும் தனியாக அவரை அடைவதற்கு எதற்காக முயற்சி செய்ய வேண்டும்? 

அவர் எப்போது வருவார் என்று எதிர்பார்த்து காத்து கொண்டே இருப்பதே என் வேலை

என்று சரணாகதியின் உண்மையான நிலை ஏற்பட்டு விடும்.

சரணாகதி லக்ஷணத்தை காட்டும் "நம:" என்ற சொல்லுக்கு நிரூபணம் காட்டினாள் சீதாதேவி. 

ராவணன், ராமபிரான் இல்லாத சமயம் பார்த்து, சீதாதேவியை கடத்தி, இலங்கைக்கு தூக்கி சென்று  விட்டான். அசோக வனத்தில் கடுங்காவல் வைத்து, நரமாமிசம் உண்ணும் ராக்ஷஸிகள் மத்தியில் சிறைப்படுத்தி விட்டான்

தினமும் சீதாதேவியிடம், ஆசைவார்த்தை சொல்லி, ராமபிரானை அவமானப்படுத்தி தன் பெருமையை மெச்சி பேசி, மிரட்டி, கெஞ்சி எப்படியாவது சம்மதிக்க முயற்சி செய்து கொண்டிருந்தான்.

தன் "கற்பு என்ற அக்னியாலேயே" ராவணனை பொசுக்கி விடும் சக்தி இருந்தும், சீதாதேவி பொறுமை காத்தாள்.

தானே தப்பிக்க, சிறு முயற்சியும் செய்யாமல், சீதா தேவி "ராமபிரான் வருவார்" என்று காத்து இருந்தாள்.

ஹனுமான் இலங்கை வந்து போது, சீதாதேவியிடம் "இப்பொழுதே தூக்கி சென்று ராமபிரான் முன் நிறுத்தி விடுகிறேன்" என்று சொல்லியும், பிறர் உதவி வேண்டாம் என்று மறுத்தாள். 

இதுவே சரணாகதி தத்துவம். 

"பகவான் காப்பாற்றுவார்" என்று நிச்சய புத்தி உள்ளவனுக்கு, 'பகவான் காப்பாற்றுவாரோ?' என்ற சந்தேகம் ஏற்படாது. 

'எதற்கும் நாமும் ஒரு சில முயற்சி செய்து வைப்போமே!', "எதற்கும் இன்னொரு கோவிலுக்கும் சென்று பிரார்த்தனை செய்து வைப்போமே!" என்ற சபல புத்தி ஏற்படாது.  

சீதாதேவியை ராவணன் தூக்கி சென்ற போது, ராமபிரானுக்கு சீதாதேவி எங்கு சென்றாள்? என்று கூட தெரியாது.

சரணாகதி செய்த சீதாதேவி, "ராமபிரான் எப்படியும் தான் எங்கு இருக்கிறோம் என்று கண்டுபிடித்து விடுவார், நம்மை காப்பாற்றி விடுவார்" என்று திடநம்பிக்கையுடன் இருந்தாள். 

நம: என்ற சொல்லுக்கு நிரூபணமாக இருந்தாள் சீதாதேவி.

சீதாதேவி சரணாகதி என்றால் என்ன? என்று நமக்கு காட்டினாள்.

Narayana Kavacha (With meaning in ENGLISH) - Srimad Bhagavatam (A Shield - To cure all disease and guard from enemies)

Narayana Kavacham

(Srimad Bhagavatam) Canto 6: Chapter 8

Bruhaspati is the 'Guru of deva' (demi gods in Heaven - Swarg Lok).
One day, when Bruhaspati went to see Indradeva in his Court, Indra was enjoying watching the dance of Apsaras (demi goddess with extreme beauty and dancing skills).

Knowing that his guru was coming to see him, he thought, "Why is he coming at this odd time?"

Knowing Indradeva's intention, Bruhaspati felt disrespected and returned quietly.

After the dance was over and the royal court had disbanded, Devendra went to the ashram to see his Guru Bruhaspati. 
But, Bruhaspati disappeared and stayed out of his vision.

The asuras learnt that "Bruhaspati is angry with the Devas. This is the right time" they said, attacking the Devas and beaten them out of heaven. 

Devas (Demi Gods who control the 5 Nature space, air, fire, water and earth) were thrown out of the Swarga Loka and wandered in earth like human beings and begging for their good time.

"Is there no redemption for this?" They regretted about their situation and appealed to Lord Brahma.

"Once without a Guru, anyone bound to struggle always. Don't be without a guru. Until Bruhaspati repents, keep Tvashta's son Viswaroopan as deva guru. Listen to him. He will tell you the way to deal with the asuras.", Brahma replied.
Vishwaroopan, a three-headed Brahman, agreed to be a guru to the demi gods (30 crore Devas).

To Heal incurable diseases and to conquer enemies, Vishwaroopa recited "Narayana Kavacham (shield)" to the demi gods (devas).

Indra diligently recited this Mantra Shield with dedication and understanding.

With this Power of Mantra, he defeated the demons (Asuras) and achieved a great victory. He recaptured the heavenly world.

Rajo Uvaacha - श्रीराजोवाच
(King Parikshit asks Suka Brahma Rishi)

यया गुप्त: सहस्राक्ष: सवाहान् रिपु सैनिकान् ।
क्रीडन्निव विनिर्जित्य त्रिलोक्या बुभुजे श्रियम् ॥

yayaa guptaḥ sahasraakṣaḥ
savaahaan ripu-sainikaan 
kreeḍan niva vinir jithya
tri-lokyaa bubhuje śriyam  

The Indra God with a thousand eyes (sahasraakṣaḥ), protected (guptaḥ) by which (yayaa) magical mantra, defeated all (savaahaan) the forces of the enemy (ripu-sainikaan) just like a game (kreeḍan niva) and attained (bubhuje) all the wealth (śriyam) by achieving the victory (vinir jithya) to become the leader of the three worlds (tri-lokyaa) back again!
भगवंस्तन्ममाख्याहि वर्म नारायणात्मकम् ।
यथाततायिन: शत्रून्येन गुप्तोऽजयन्मृधे ॥

bhagavas tan mama akhyaahi
varma naaraayaṇa aatmakam  
yathaa tataa yinaḥ shatrūn
yena gupto ajayan mṛdhe  

Bhagavan! You (bhagavaṁs tan) should teach (akhyaahi) me (mama) the art of Narayana Kavacham (naaraayaṇa aatmakam) which gives a great protection (varma).
No matter how (yathaa) the enemies (shatrūn) try to defeat him (tataa yinaḥ), by (yena) chanting the Narayana Armor Mantra, Indra Deva was protected (gupto) and undefeated (ajayan) in battle (mṛdhe).
SriSuka Uvaacha - श्रीशुक उवाच
(SriSuka BrahmaRishi Says)

वृत: पुरोहितस्त्वाष्ट्रो महेन्द्रायानुपृच्छते ।
नारायणाख्यं वर्माह तदिहैकमना: श‍ृणु ॥

vṛtaḥ purohitas tvaaṣṭro
mahendraa yaanu pṛcchate
naaraayaṇaakhya varmaaha
tad iha yeka-manaḥ śṛṇu

Indra Deva (mahendraa) asked “What is the trick to defeat enemies?” (yaanu pṛcchate) to Viswaroopa, son of tvaastro (tvaaṣṭro) appointed priest of the demi gods (vṛtaḥ purohita).
Hence, Viswaroopa preached the Narayana Kavacham (naaraayaṇaakhya varmaaha) to Lord Indra.
Sri Sukabramma Rishi said Parikshit “I preach that (tad) same here (iha). Parikshit Manna! Listen (śṛṇu) with one mind (yeka manah) what Viswaroopa said”
Viswaroopa Uvaacha - श्रीविश्‍वरूप उवाच
