The Lord Ramachandra Prayers!

he Lord Ramachandra Prayers!
"Rama Nama Namaskar"
Special Daily Worship Procedure
for Lord Sri Ramachandra

This worship procedure was given by Sathguru Venkataraman to a few of his students for the 1984 Rama Navami celebrations. We take great pleasure in sharing it with the world today.

As you may know, Maha Guru Agasthiar was a Guru to Lord Shri Rama Himself. From the position of a Guru, he taught Lord Rama the great Aditya Hridaya Maha Mantra on the eve of the Lord's ultimate battle with the demon Ravana. Thus who better than Maha Guru Agasthiar and his Siddha Lineage to teach us how to worship Lord Ramachandra!

In this pooja procedure, there are five mantras. Each mantra should be chanted 101 times. After each time, a full body namaskar (prostration) should be offered at the lotus feet of Lord Sri Rama, Mother Sita and Lord Hanuman.

5 mantras X 101 times = 505 chants (and 505 namaskars).

Women do not have to do a full body namaskar. They can just kneel down and touch their foreheads to the ground. Men should do a full body namaskar where the entire length of the body touches the ground and the hands are held together in front at full stretch. This full body namaskar signifies total surrender (saranagati) to the Divine Grace of Lord Shri Ram, Mother Seetha and Lord Hanuman. It is an important part of these "Rama Nama Namaskara Mantras."

This is a very powerful worship procedure. Serious Rama devotees should offer this worship to Lord Shri Rama daily. This special  daily worship procedure results in remarkable spiritual uplift, if done with sincerity, devotion and an attitude of surrender (saranagati). If you cannot do it daily, at least do it on weekends and on special Rama worship days.
