53. Rama nama japa

Those who don’t have time to do meditation, can simply say “rama nama“. One who chants “rama nama” one crore times, will get the darshan of “rama”.

When bridge was built by  monkeys under the leadership of Hanuman, to bring back  Sita from Lanka, Hanuman wrote the name of “rama” in small rocks and threw them into water. The rocks floated in water. Rama himself threw some rocks into the water but they got immersed in water. Hanuman explained Rama that rama nama is more poerful than Rama.

Those who want peace and happiness in life should do rama nama japa. Shri Thyagaraja got the darshan of Rama after chanting his name for one crore times. Those who die in Varanasi will get moksha as Lord Parameshwara himself will chant “rama nama” in their ears. The name rama is the combination of Parameshwa”ra-ma”heshwari. While doing rama japam we actually do pranayama. The inhilation and exhilation of air during rama japam is very good for health and also for the realisation of God.

I used to chant rama nama at the time of travel. I get peace of mind and could reach my destination safely. Rama nama is known as taraka manthra. It relieves us from the cycle of birth and death. The letters “ra” from Om namo Narayana and the letters “ma” from Om nama Shivaya give rama and by doing rama japa, we get the blessings of Shiva and Vishnu. So, make time to do rama nama japa.
