Glories of the Divine Name of Lord Ram

Ram Naam is most dear to Tulsidas –

Sumirat sulabh sab kaahu |

Lok laahu paralok nibaahu ||

Kahat sunat sumirat suthi neeke |

Raam lakhan sam priya Tulasi ke ||

(Manas, Baalkand 20/2, 3)

In saying, listening and contemplating the name of the Lord is most pleasing and sweet. Both Ram and Lakshman were equally dear to Tulasidasji. In saying “Ram, Ram Ram ..” there is great joy and in hearing “Ram Ram Ram” also there is great joy. Such is the great and melodious sound of the two letters in the Lord’s name. Goswamiji Maharaj says some extra-ordinary things, as if he has lost all consciousness. What is the Lord’s name like? The listeners are given such examples by which they can easily understand. In the Shri Ramcharitramanas, there are four dialogs “sanvads” 1. With Parvatiji and Lord Shankar 2) Yagyavalkji and Bhardvajji 3. Kagbhushnadiji and Garudji and 4. Saints and Goswamiji Maharaj.

In these various dialogs, Goswamiji Maharaj talks about the glories of the Lord’s name and at which time he says that these two letter are so charming and loving, just like Ram and Lakshma are dear to Tulasi. At the end of Ramcharitramanas, an extra-ordinary point is shared about the Raghu dynasty and Lord Ram’s Name –

Kaamihi naari piyaari jimi lobhihi priya jimi daam |

Timis raghunaath niranter priya laagahu mohi Ram (Manas, Utterkaand 130 Kha)

Both examples are such, that every man will be able to relate to and understand and which every man is attracted towards. If you want to understand the principles then the example given should be such that is in every man’s experience. But here Goswamiji Maharaj says – “Ram lakhan sam priya Tulasi ke” – that every man knows that how dear Ram and Lakshman are to Tulasi? If Ram-Lakshman are also dear to the devotee, then one must understand that name of Ram is so very dear! Being a poet of such a high stature, what a striking example he gives. Now how are we to understand how dear the name of Lord Ram is to Tulasi? Then is says – “Kaamihi naari piya” jimi lobhihi priya jimi daam” – just as a lecherous man finds a woman so gorgeous and just as a greedy man finds money so exquisite, similarly the name of Ram is most attractive and dear to me. “Timi Raghunaath niranter priya laagahu mohi Ram” – Goswamiji Maharaj has given two names – “Kaamihi naari piyaari jimi” – in that is wrote “Raghunaath” and in “Lobhihi priya jimi daam” – in that he wrote the name of “Ram”. Just as a lecherous man loves beautiful women and a greedy man loves money. A greedy man does not look towards beauty, he is engrossed in counting money. He loves to count money. The lord of the Raghu dynasty, Maharaj Shri Ram is seated on the throne, such a sight and form of the Lord and the name of the Lord “Ram” – both these are dear to him, in other words – the form of the Lord and the Name of the Lord are both dear to him.
