Ram Navami Short Prayer (For children) By Pratibha Jani

Another  short and sweet  sanskrit prayer for Lord Rama.

My dad used to sing this all the time around the house. I can still hear him sing it.

Very short and beautiful prayer especially for younger children to learn quickly and easily.

Ramo raja Mani : रामो राज मणिः

रामो राज मणिः सदा विजयते,  रामं रमेशं भजे |
रामेणा विहता निशा चर चमु, रामाय तस्मै नामः
रामान्नास्ति परायणं पर तरं, रामष्य दासोस्म्याहं,
रामेचित्त लयः सदा भवतुमे, भो राम मामुद्धर.

Ramo raja manih sadaa vijayate, ramam ramesham bhaje

Raamenaa vihataa nisha chara chamu, Ramaya tasmai namah|

Raamaannaasti paraayanam para taram, raamashya daasosmyaham,

Raame chitta layah sadaa bhavatume, Bho rama Maamuddhara.

Enjoy and remember to pass it on.

How to make Panchamrut (five nectars) for pooja

Hi every one,

Panchamrut is considered to be the nectar for offering to gods in various religious occasions in Hindu culture.  Panch- is five in sanskrit and Amrut is nectar.  At the end of the Pooja, a little bit of panchamrut is offered to all who have attended the pooja as part of the Prasad.

When making Panchamrut, use the quantity according to the people present. When using just to offer to god, this following quantity should suffice. Make sure to add one Tulsi leaf  before offering to God.

Here is how we make Panchamrut:

Ingredients:

  • one table spoon of fresh luke warm milk
  • one teaspoon of fresh (preferably home made) yogurt
  • one tea spoon of pure Ghee
  • one teaspoon of good quality Honey
  • one teaspoon of Guud (Jaggery)  Or Sugar.

Method:   Take Milk in a bowl and add all other ingredients in the order as above stirring each one gently to mix well as you add.

Now add one tulsi leaf and offer to God for pooja.  After Pooja and prasad distribution to all, any left over panchamrut should be offered to a plant pot or tulsi if not used up.

Enjoy
