RAMA DHYAANAM (Contemplation of Sri Rāma)
raamaya raama bhadraaya
raama chandraya vedase
raghu naathaaya naathaya
seetha yaah pataye namaha
I bow down to he who is known as Rāma, the haven of security, the moon of
delight, the all-knowing, the lord of the Raghu dynasty, and husband of Sītā.
daataaram sarva sampadaam
lokaabhiraamam shree raamam
bhooyo bhooyo namaamyaham
I bow again and again to Shree Rāma who removes all obstacles, grants
wealth, and pleases all.
This Ramanavami I send prayers to Sri Ramachandra to keep you and your family safe.
