Sri.Thiagaraja Ramayanam [Aranyakandam] Tamil Speech by S.V.Ramani.
In Sri Thiagaraja Ramayana in Aranyakandam Thiagaraja told in his songs that Sabari waits eagerly for Rama's arrival for several years and offers him athithi satkaram. Even in our daily pooja, while weoffer naivedyam, we recite this sloka,
Lord Rama's meeting with Hanumanwith Sraddha (Swamiji attaches lot of importance to Sraddha – the commitment) and automatically Perumal with the help of Acharya will rescueus -- just like He rescued Sita with the help of Hanuman.
Sri Thiagaraja describes Rama is an avatharam of Lord Srimannarayana; Rama was worshippedby his subjects not because he was the Lord, but because of his qualities.Lord Rama with his exemplary behaviour depicted to the world how one shouldbehave and react to adverse circumstances. In addition to the peripheralstoryline in Ramayanam one should understand the underlying philosophic meaning of each episode and follow it as far as possible to lead a "PERFECT LIFE". Let us all sing Rama’s name.
