Why should we learn about Rama? – Nammalvar

கற்பார் இராம பிரானையல்லால்மற்றும் கற்பரோ?,

புற்பா முதலாப் புல்லெறும் பாதியொன் றின்றியே,

நற்பால் அயோத்தியில் வாழும் சராசரம் முற்றவும்,

நற்பாலுக் குய்த்தனன் நான்முக னார்பெற்ற நாட்டுளே. (2) 7.5.1

Why would anyone want

to learn anything but Rama?

Beginning with the low grass

and the creeping ant

with nothing


he took everything in his city,

everything moving,

everything still,

he took everything,

everything born

of the lord

of four faces,

he took them all

to the very best of states.
Poet: Nammalavar

  1. Good one Vairam.

    கேட்பார் கேசவன் கீர்த்தியல்லால் மற்றும் கேட்பரோ !

  2. Without understanding Rama you can be good. But once you understand Rama you can never be bad. That is the greatness of Rama.
