- Chanting Sri Rama’s name is the only saving mantra for one who wants to be liberated from ignorance and attain salvation and cross over the many cycles of births
- Srimad Ramayana is the path, leading to the supreme abode of Sri Rama. Reading and studying the life story of Sri Rama is an excellent remedy to remove all inauspiciousness in our lives and gives us the power of dharma and ultimate peace.
Sri Rama’s form is a divine and auspicious form. In the Treta Yuga, Sri Vishnu Bhagavan descended as Sri Rama, on this earth as the son of King Dasharatha, Sri Rama. He embodied the beauty of Supreme Truth, the magnificence of knowledge, heroism, bravery, and magnanimity. He was the epitome, of what the Vedas regarded as the “Purushottama”, with these divine attributes. Lord Rama’s purpose has been to discipline those who were unrighteous and holding unethical and unprincipled values and protect and uphold the good in the world. Reading Sri Ramayana is equivalent to reading the Vedas.
