Dear Friends,

मच्छन्दादेव ते ब्रह्मन् प्रवृत्तेयं सरस्वती ॥३१॥

macCandAdEva thE brahman pravRuththEyam sarasvathI

Through my will alone has this speech flowed from your lips, O brAhmana sage!

brood not over this (anymore) Let this metrical composition be conducive to your glory.

Brahma to vAlmIkI, who was sad at his curse on the hunter who had struck down a bird and out of grief, uttered a curse on the hunter. The utterances was wonderful, rhythmic couplets, set in four metrical feet, each containing an equal number of letters (eight) possessing the rhythm of a song that can be sung to a lute.

as mountains and rivers will remain on the surfaces of the earth.

Sri Hari,

I long wanted to open a thread on Ramayana, but the sheer volume of the scripture always kept me aback. I pray, He guide and take it well, and bring out the nectar Himself. :)

Description of the city of ayODhyA and the prosperity of its inhabitants during the reign of King dhasharathA

The people of that city are happy, virtuous, learned in sacred lore,
free from greed, truthful and contented with their own fortune.

यत्र यत्र रघुनाथ- कीर्तनं
तत्र तत्र कृत- मस्तकाञ्जलिम् .
बाष्प- वारि- परिपूर्ण- लोचनं
मारुतिर्नमत राक्षसान्तकम्


yatra yatra raghunatha kIrthanam
thathra thathra kRuta mastaka anjalim
bAShpawAri pari pUrNa locanam

Hanuman, the slayer of the demons, is present with folded hands raised to his head, his eyes
brimming with tears of joy, whenever the name of Shri Rama is uttered with devotion.

1.7.13-15 (vAlmIki ramayanam bAlakANDam)

  As a result of the ministers being all upright
[in their dealings], of one mind and fully discerning,
there was no man who told a lie anywhere in the
city [of ayODhyA] Or for that matter in the
[entire] kingdom.

There was no wicked man or one having liaison with
another's wife anywhere in the [entire] kingdom.

[On the other hand] the whole state as
well as the aforesaid city of ayODhyA was perfectly
tranquil [free from turmoil or tribulation]
