Ram Raksha Stotra
Ram Raksha Stotra is the most robust cure to all of all problems. Anything is possible when Lord Rama’s name gets attached to it. The Setu Bridge that was built to reach and capture Lanka, was made with stones that floated on water. All these stones had the name of Maryada Purushottam Rama written on them. In Sanskrit literature, poetry written to venerate any God or Goddess is known as Stotra. It is believed that the recitation of Ram Raksha Stotra with adherence to all rules and regulations laid down in the ancient times , brings an end to the difficulties faced by a human being at once.
Ram Raksha Stotra should be recited by duly observing all the rituals associated with it. Rites and rituals which should be followed during any ceremony find a special place in our religious scriptures. Many a times, we do not get fruitful results after worshiping the Gods regularly and also eulogizing our Isht Devis and Devtas. It so happens because we tend to disregard the proper rules and regulations. Likewise, Ram Raksha Strot should also be recited by conforming to the necessary holy formalities.
Ram Raksha Strot’s Creation
Ram Raksha Strot was penned down by Budh Kaushik Rishi Valmiki. However, as per the mythological beliefs, it has been believed that Lord Shiva appeared in the dreams of Sage Valmiki and recited the Ram Stotra. As dawn broke, Valmiki ji woke up and wrote down the entire Ram Raksha Stotra. This Strot is available in Devvani Sanskrit. It is not necessary to recite it when all hell breaks loose and you are surrounded by difficulties. In the normal circumstances also, Ram Strot can be chanted to remain at the receiving end of auspicious results and Lord Rama’s blessings.
Ram Raksha Stotra : Reciting Rituals
Rama Strota’s successful recitation brings success and prosperity to various aspects of a native’s life. However, according to the work, changes are also seen in its method. This hymn or Strot must be recited 11 times. It has also been stated that if Shri Ram Raksha Stotra is recited 11 times, then its impact lasts throughout the day. If you recite Ram Stotra continuously for 45 days, then its effect doubles. Ram Raksha Strot should definitely be chanted during the time of Navratri. However, one should purify his/her soul and body and eulogize Lord Rama before initiating its recitation.
