Ram Shabd Men Shuchi Samaadhaan. ...5.
|Thinking, repeating name is sweet,
To sing it in loud refrain is sweet ;
To sit in silence, in mind's retreat,
And listening there to Name is sweet.
|Recitation of Sri Ram's holy name sanctifies everything - ‘dhyaan’, ‘saadhanaa’, meditation, contemplation and revelations (answers to the problems appearing during meditation). As the devotee recites 'Ram - Ram', the spiritual significance is felt keenly and subtly; while it is vocal chanting of the word, the Saadhak really meditates and reflects on the spirit. ...5|
|Amrit Rasnaa Wahee Kahaave,
Ram-Ram, Jahaan Naam Suhaave.
Amrit Karm Naam Kamaaee,
Ram-Ram Param Sukhdaaee. ....6.

|Who seats Ram-Ram within his mind,
To him comes blessings of all kind ;
The notes of name vibrates wherever,
All woes and ills disappear therever.
Sri Ram-Naam in the inmost niche of the heart fills the devotee with
sublimity and higher spiritual 'wealth'. Happy tidings marked by good
fortune, peace and prosperity visit the place while the agents of gloom,
pain and doom depart from where Ram-Naam is uttered.
‘Visham-Vishaad’: The three constituents (’Gunas’) of 'Prakriti'- 'Sattva', 'Rajas' and 'Tamas' stand for happiness and goodness, pain and restlessness, and darkness, negativity and passivity respectively. He who is afflicted with ‘tamas’ gets entrapped in the vicious circle of passivity, apathy and inactivity that are difficult to overcome and defy all remedies. ...11

The way to all round success and excellence is paved automatically and the devotee is helped to undertake higher spiritual pilgrimage in a propitious(auspicious) environment. ...12|

Atishaya Mangal Mool.
Visham-Vikat Sankat Haran,
Kaarak Sab Anukool. ...13.
Source of blessings un-told,
Slayer of ill and evil,
Giver of help mani-fold.
O Saadhak! With keenness and complete faith, remember forever ‘Ram-Naam’ - the Provider of invaluable inner peace, comfort, happiness and equanimity, and the Victor who vanquishes agony, anguish and inauspiciousness.
‘Visham-Vikat-Sankat’: Onset of intolerable and terrible difficulties all at once. ...13
Japnaa Ram-Ram Hai Sukrit,
Ram-Naam Hai Naashak Dushkrit.
Simre Ram-Ram Hee Jo Jan,
Uskaa Ho Shuchitar Tan-Man. ...14.
|Repeat the Name-'Tis
best of acts,
The Name-Ram-Ram-all ills corrects ;
Whoever repeats the Name Ram-Ram,
His body and mind become pure and calm.
|Devout recitation of Sri Ram's holy name is the most sacred act that ennobles, elevates and sanctifies, besides cleansing the inner dross (evil) by overwhelming the evil and the evil deeds of the devotee. ...14|
Jismen Ram-Naam Shubh Jaage,
Us Ke Paap-Taap Sab Bhaage.
Man Se Ram-Naam Jo Uchaare,
Us Ke Bhaagen Bhram Bhaya Saare. ...15.
|When blessed Name awakes within,
The mind is purged of pride and sin ;
Whoever in joy chants name and sings,
His doubts and fears at once take wings.
One whose inner being gets aglow with the Holy Light of Ram Naam no longer suffers the pangs of suffering, adversity, doubt and fear. Anyone who remembers Ram-Naam with devotion, faith and reverence is not bothered by fear and doubt.

‘Bhaya’: Fear of misfortune such as loss of life, property or prestige. ...15

|In whom the sacred name is nested
In him Shri-Ram is manifested ;
When Name Ram-Ram in mind appears,
One swims ashore from sea of fears.
|He has all his desires fulfilled who consecrates his inmost niche with Sri Ram's holy name. Passionate and ceaseless remembrance of Ram-Ram enables the devotee to attain eternal salvation from the mortal world. ...16|
|Ram-Simran Hove Sahaaee,
Ram-Simran Hai Sukhdaaee.
Ram-Simran Sab Se Oonchaa,
Ram Shakti Sukh Gyaan Samoochaa. ...17.
|Ram-Ram repeat, He helps, does
Giver of health and wealth and weal ;
Repeat Ram-Ram, highest of all,
Giver of peace, wisdom and all.

‘Simran’: Remembering Sri Ram - Sri Ram with utmost faith and keenness. ...17

‘Hari’: The Almighty God who overpowers and conquers all evils.
‘Bhaj’: (Ruminate) Remembering God's name in the same manner as the animals enjoy chewing the cud long after having eaten the fodder. Likewise, the devotee should be filled with ecstasy and pure bliss as he fondly and passionately remembers and recollects the majestic name of Shri Ram. ...18
Maat-Pitaa Baandhav Sut Daaraa,
Dhan Jan Saajan Sakhaa Pyaaraa.
Ant Kaal De Sake Naa Sahaaraa,

|Mother, Father, Relations, Son,
Wealth, Power, Husband, Friend dear as life,
At death, to help, no one will wend,
Ram-nam alone will save at the End.
|As the spirit within prepares to depart from the human body, all the worldly relations and familial bonds prove of no avail. 'Ram - Naam' alone accompanies the Spirit on its onward journey to God's abode and is Its saviour/protector. ...19|
|Simran Ram-Naam Hai Sangi,
Sakhaa Snehee Suhird Shubh Angi.
Yug-Yug Kaa Hai Ram Sahelaa,

So near and dear within your call ;
From age to age His Light has shone,
A devotee of Ram is never alone.

In fact, Sri Ram's devout devotee is never lonesome, as His blessings and protection are always available to him. ...20|

When all around is death, darkness,
As light of Name Ram-Ram is lit,
Of own accord all sufferings quit.
|Be it a desolate and forsaken jungle, an awesome dark night, seemingly endless tribulations and agonies - all these disappear instantly and of their own accord as soon as our inner being is aglow with the Holy Ram-Naam. ...21|
Baadhaa Bardhi Visham Jab Aave,
Vair Virodh Vighna Bardh Jaave.

Sachaa Saathi Jo Hitkar Traataa. ...22.
|When odds and ends obstruct way,
Enemies abound, jealousies sway,
In Name Ram-Ram seek rest abide,
Comforter, companion, well-wisher, true guide.
|The devotee should constantly remember and recite 'Ram- Naam' - the infallible (sure) remedy for enmity, hurdles, resistance or opposition as ‘Jaap’ of 'Ram-Naam ' alone proves to be a dependable friend, benefactor and protector. ...22|

|Day in day out I seek His Grace,
His grace does all problems efface ;
The end of life is safe in His Hands,
He is protector of men and lands.
|I invoke Sri Ram’s Grace (and Forgiveness) so as to protect and secure myself against troubles, turmoils, sinister (evil) designs and misfortunes. As the Preserver and Protector, Sri Ram’s Grace saves and secures at the end of this mortal life. ...69|
Ram-Kripaa Hai Shubh Sanyog.
Ram-Kripaa Sab Saadhan-Marm,
Ram-Kripaa Sanyam Satya Dharm. ...70.
|The Grace of God is Highest Way,
The Grace of God is "passion-play" ;
By Grace of God comes self control,
Comes love for truth, deep search for soul.
|Sri Ram’s Grace and Compassion is the noblest form of divine benediction; the core content of spirituality; the quintessence of metaphysics (‘Rahasyavaad’); and the sure way to Supreme Will-Power, conquest of the Self and Knowledge of the Highest Religion. ...70|
|Ram-Naam Ko Man Men
Supath Ram-Kripaa Kaa Hai Paanaa.
Man Men Ram-Dhun Jab Phire,
Ram-Kripaa Tab Hee Avtare. ...71.
|The path of grace - if you may
Enshrine the Name then in your mind ;
When in your mind the Word swings,
Welcome coming of King of Kings.
Imbibing Sri Ram’s Holy Name is a sublime way of receiving His Grace. Only when the heart is genuinely imbued (filled) and resonant with Ram-Naam, do Sri Ram’s Grace and Benediction bless the devotee.
‘Dhun’: Spontaneous, continuous and harmonious resonance of the Holy Ram-Naam within the Devotee. ...71
Naam Men Ho Kar Leen,
Jaise Jal Men Ho Meen Adeen.
Ram-Kripaa Bharpoor Main Paaoon,
Param Prabhu Ko Bheetar Laaoon. ...72.
|Oh may I live in Name as free,
In waters as a fish is free,
And fill myself with grace and Love,
Within, around, below and above.
|Just as the marine life (sea animals like fish) roam around fearlessly in water, I wish to be fully immersed in the glory of Ram-Naam and to experience Oneness and complete identification with Sri Ram and His Grace. Indeed, Sri Ram and His Grace are one and inseparable from each other. ...72|
Bhajte Ram-Kripaa Kaa Nidhaan.
Ram-Kripaa Us Jan Men Aave,
Jis Men Aap Hee Ram Basaave. ...73.

Of Grace of God seek treasure trove ;
On him alone does Grace descend,
On whom He Himself chooses to send.

Ram Kee Deni,
Kaal-Vyaal Janjaal Har Leni.
Ram-Naam De Rahit Vivaad. ...74.

Destroys death's gall, all vanity ends ;
God's Grace -- so sweet, soothing, as balm,
Comes quietly on him who sings Ram-Ram.
|Sri Ram Himself bestows His Grace on the devotees and liberates the human souls from the clutches and fangs of Time - the Ruthless (without pity) Serpent. Indeed, Sri Ram’s Grace provides the nectarous (like nectar) bliss surely and unmistakably. ...74|
Brahm-Dhaam Men Aap Pahunchaataa.
Prabhu-Prasaad Paave Wah Praanee,
Ram-Ram Jape Amrit-Vaani. ...75.
|The Grace of God Gives peace,
And leads to Kingdom of Blessedness ;
On him who takes the Name Divine,
Blessings of God descend and shine.
|He attains Sri Ram’s Grace and Benevolence who chants His divine name keenly and fervently. Such a devotee also experiences Sri Ram’s liberal munificence (generosity) in being blessed with bliss and inner peace, and is led to God’s abode. ...75|
Ram-Naam Kee Khaaiye,
Mrityu Janm Ke Rog Mitaaiye.
Ram-Naam Amrit Ras-Paan,

|Of Name, - Ram-Ram 'th remedy
All ills of mortal life destroy ;
Drink in the nectar-like sweet Name,
Highest salvation thereby attain.
|The only ‘medicine’ worth taking is the Holy Ram-Naam that Surely delivers and liberates us from the endless chain of life and death, the agony and travails (pain) of mortal life, and leads us to salvation (immortality of the soul) of the purest and highest order. ...76|
Dhun Goonj Se,
Bhav-Bhaya Jaate Bhaag.

Sab Shubh Jaate Jaag. ...77.
|Chant loud Ram-Ram Shri-Ram,
Doubt & fear shall dis-appear ;
Hark within the Name Ram-Ram,
Hope & cheer shall reappear.
|With the echoes of the sound of holy ‘Ram-Ram’ all apprehensions of the birth-death-birth cycle disappear. Also vanish all the evil forces yielding place to the auspicious forces of all round well being after the devotee trains his mind and attention on the Holy sound of ‘Ram-Ram’. ...77|
Main Ram-Naam Mahaadaan,
Kartaa Nirdhan Kaa Kalyaan.
Dev-Dwaar Par Janm Kaa Bhookhaa,
Bhakti Prem Anuraag Se Rookhaa. ...78.
|I seek the Name, greatest of gifts,
The rich treasure that ever up-lifts ;
Since births Thy Gate I watch and wait,
Alas! I lack in love and faith!.
|I humbly beseech (request) and pray for the benefaction of the unparalleled Ram-Naam that dispels (removes) privation and poverty, and grants all the blessings. For the past innumerable lives, I have been devoid of His Grace and am indeed without any positive traits (qualities) like devotion, ardent desire, faith and genuine spiritual quest (search). ...78|
Charan Pardhe Kee Rakhiyo Mer.
Apnaa Aap Virad-Vichaar,
Deejiye Bhagwan! Naam Pyaar. ...79.
|But 'I am Thine', Oh,
'I am Thine',
I seek refuge singing this rhyme ;
Keep Thou Thy Word, fulfil Thy Claim,
Give me, my Lord, deep love for Name.
|I passionately beseech Thee, O Lord, Sri Ram! because ‘I am Thine’ only. Here do I lie prostrate before Thee! Pray, bethink Thine stature, magnificence, fame and, being unmindful of my vices and frailties, grant me Thine Forgiveness, Patronage, Affection, Blessings and unshakeable faith in my devotion for You! ...79|
Ne We Bhee Taare,
Jo The Adharmi-Adham Hatyaare.
Tar Gaye Ram-Naam Le Ek. ...80.
|Hath not Thy Name sinners
Wicked worthless morally depraved ?
Criminals culprits fallen in shame,
Have washed their sins in river of Name.
|The holy ‘Ram-Naam’ ensured ultimate salvation even to those who were atheistic and irreligious, and who led a life of wickedness, immorality, crime, promiscuity (indiscriminate physical relations), deceit and treachery. This was the result of remembering Sri Ram’s Name only. ...80|
Gaye Dhriti-Dhaarnaa Heen,
Dharm-Karm Men Jan Ati Deen.
Ram-Ram Sri Ram-Jap Jaap,
Huye Atul-Vimal-Apaap. ...81.
|Even those in actions and duties
With minds infirm, wavering and weak,
Repeat Ram-Ram, achieve success,
Are firm in faith, become pure, sinless.
The Graciousness of ‘Sri Ram-Naam’ saves the souls of even those who lack steadiness, faith, self-restraint and are irreligious and overtly indulgent (fond of pleasure).

‘Dhriti’: steadiness. ...81
Man Mukh Men Bole,
Ram-Naam Bheetar Pat Khole.
Ram-Naam Se Kamal-Vikaas.
Hoven Sab Saadhan Sukh-Raas. ...82.
|Mutter Ram-Ram in mind, in mouth,
And open the gate of heart's house,
Ram-Nam opens Lotuses within,
Flowers to joy each discipline.
|Silent and persistent recitation of the Holy ‘Ram-Naam’ dispels(removes) with its resplendence (dazzling brightness) the dark clouds of ignorance and, instead, fills the devotee’s inner being with Superconsciousness. Knowledge of the ‘Brahman’-the Lotus brings our spiritual quest (search) to its grand finale-Oneness with the Creator. ...82|
Ghat Bheetar Base,
Saans-Saans Nas-Nas Se Rase.
Sapne Men Bhee Na Bisre Naam,
Ram-Ram Sri Ram-Ram-Ram. ...83.
|With every breath, in every vein,
Through-out your body, pulsate the Name,
So place in name your every thought,
You, even in dreams, forget it not.
|When the Holy ‘Ram-Naam’ pervades (fills) our heart and soul, the entire Being, including every pore and breath, pulsates with Sri Ram’s Grace as spontaneously as the hilly springs gush forth effortlessly. Thereafter, not in the slumberous state (dreams) does the devotee become oblivious (forgetful) of the auspicious ‘Ram-Ram’. Instead, ‘Ram-Ram Sri Ram-Ram-Ram’ becomes integral part of his consciousness and he experiences abiding remembrance of ‘Ram-Naam’. ...83|
Ram-Naam Ke Mel Se,
Sadh Jaate Sab-Kaam.
Dev-Dev Deve Yadaa.

Get united with the Name,
Whatever task they undertake,
Success there-in attain.

Aho! Main Ram-Naam Dhan Paayaa,

When in your tongue Its honesty abounds,
When in your mind its rhythm resounds.

Kar Ram-Naam Dhan-Raashi,
Ghor-Avidyaa Vipad Vinaashi.
Bardhaa Jab Ram Prem Kaa Poor,

|O seeks Ram-Nam's power
Destroy deep darkness and distress ;
Of love for name when comes the tide,
Difficulties and doubts are swept aside.
|As the devotee is blessed with the unique spiritual wealth of 'Ram-Naam', the dark and painful clouds of ignorance dissolve and disappear. Also get washed away in the deluge (flood) of Sri Ram’s Grace all the evil forces of fear, doubt and misfortune. Fond and devout devotion to Sri Ram transforms itself into an infallible remedy and antidote for even the worst forms of ignorance, doubts and misfortunes. ...86|
Ram-Naam Jo Jape Ek Ber,
Us Ke Bheetar Kosh-Kuber.
Ram-Ram Jap Hove Nihaal. ...87.
|But once who is able to unfold,
The Name, he finds treasures un-told ;
Broken, bleeding, or poor, wretched,
Repeat Ram-Ram, become blessed.
|Passionate and soulful remembrance of Ram-Naam, even though once, enriches the devotee spiritually in a way that can compare well with Mammon - God of Wealth. Recital of ‘Ram-Ram’ with devotion and faith endows even the helpless, hapless, destitute, indigent (needy) and depressed with wealth, affluence, eminence and good luck. ...87|
Ram-Naam Se Bhariye,
Sanchaya Ram-Naam Dhan Kariye.
Ghat Men Naam Moorti Dhariye,
Poojaa Antarmukh Ho Kariye. ...88.
|O fill your heart! Ram-Ram within,
Gather the treasure of Name there-in,
There place idol of God, -- Shri Ram,
Worship Him there in silence calm.
|We should amass and accumulate the only sacrosanct wealth of ‘Ram-Naam’ in our hearts. In fact, ‘Ram-Naam’ should be embedded in the inmost niche of our Being. We should introspect and forever remain in a state of devout and profound contemplation on the glories of Sri Ram Who graces our inner being. ...88|
| Aankhen Moond Ke Suniye Sitaar,
Ram-Ram Sumadhur Jhankaar.
Us Me Man Kaa Mel Milaao,
Ram-Ram Sur Men Hee Samaao. ...89.
|Then close your eyes, listen to
Ringing the rhythm of Name so clear,
And tune your mind to music sweet,
Be one with Ram, Ram-Ram Repeat.
|We should be attuned to the celestial (heavenly) harmony emanating (originating) from the holy ‘Ram-Ram’ that forever orchestrates (runs, performs) within. In fact, our consciousness should lose its independent identity and mingle and merge with Sri Ram’s Superconsciousness. ...89|

In silence I say, Ram-Ram-Shri-Ram,
Aloud I sing Ram-Ram-Shri-Ram !
