Nithya Karma’s in Ramayana-II

Nithya Karma’s in Ramayana-II
During their first Aranya visit with Rishi Vishwamitrar, they are sleeping peacefully on the banks of Sarayu River. During the Sunrise, Rama and Lakshmana Look like bala Suryas.

“Rama! Purva Sandhya Pravarthathe ! Uddishta NarasaaDhuva Kartavyam Daivamanmigam”

Oh Rama! Wakeup ! Time is important to do the Nitya Karma (so don’t say Let the day dawn little more). The sky have became Red in the east due to sunrise and you have to do the nitya karma so wakeup

Upon hearing this Rama and Lakshmana wakeup and then, they did Sandhayvandana by chanting Gayatri Mantra infront of the person who created the Mantra.

They Finished their nityakarmas and went along with Rishi Vishwamithra. They stayed that night in a place where there were lot of Great rishis residing. They will not do anything against Dharma at any situation. (Desham Pabam na Vidyathe). They did not have Pambam(Atharma) even in the size of an atom. Even Though they have that kind of Knowledge they did the Nityakaramas with at most sincerity.

“Ydhargham Ajaban Santhyam Rushayasthe Samahitha” (Bala Gandam Sar23)

They did Nithyakarmas with fully involved and sincerely even though they have all the knowledge.

They reached Siddharsram where Vishwamitra going to start the Yagam and Vishwamitra took the yagna Diksha . Both Rama and Lakshmana Slept well during that night and the next day,

“Prabthakale Sotthaya Puurvam Sandhya Mubashya Sha” (Bala Gandam Sar 29)


Rama Lakshmana Wokeup in the Morning and complete the Daily Rituals.

Upon completion of the Yaga Succesfully, vishwamitra told “Rama , because of you, this place (Siddashrama) got its meaning.”

“Sa hi Ramam Prasashyvam Dapyam Santhyam Upakamath” (Balagandam Sar 30)

After praising Rama, Vishwamitra did the Sandhyvandanam along with Rama and Lakshmana

After that they begin to travel to Mithila. Lot of other rishis also took part in that. Normaly, when lot of persons travel as a group , it will be more fun, but this group is not like that.

Did they thought “we are in travel , we can do our Nithyakarmas upon reaching Mithila”?? no they did not think like that. Once the Day dawned they completed the Daily Rituals on time.


On the way to Mithila, they spent a night on the banks of River Sonai. Sun rose but Rama Was still sleeping. Vishwamitra could have let him sleep, but he was in a hyrry to see “seethe Kalyanam”.

“Subrapatha Nisa Rama Purvaa Santhya Pravathathe!

Utthisto Utthista Pathram The Kamanaya Prosaya!!” (Balagandam Sar 35)

“Night has gone Rama! Wake Up. Arunan Already appeadred in East. We have to continue the Travel”

Nithya Karma’s in Ramayana


Nithya Karma’s in Ramayana

Though Shri Mahavishu took 6 avatars before Rama Avatar, only in this he born and lived as other humans. All other avatars were need of that moment only.

Though all the Puranas Sasthras and other books Describing the Karmas which we need to do in days to days life, we have a doubt whether we can do that or not?

If we think that those karmas are only for the purpose of Upanyasa , it will be a great dishonour to the Rishis who gave them to us. All the Karmas given by them can be done even today. They have given only the Karmas which we can follow now. If we say we cant do that today , then its our weakness only. Since you are not following a particular Karma or Dharma , you cant say that Dharma or Karma is Entirely Wrong.

Rama Avataras main aim to show that world , every one should and can follow the Nithyakarma without Fail.

You may say that i don’t have time . My Day is full of work in office and in home. Yes its true. Similarly in Rama’s life also, he face enormous problem. He did not spend his life in palace alone. He went to Aranyas, Sea and faced lot of problems and difficulties. But there was not even a single day in his life, in which he did not follow the Nithyakarmanusta.
