[O devotees! So far the narration was around the way the Sukham Tharum Sundara Kandam story was formed, from this episode, through the grace of Almighty and Guru Agastya, the slokhas He mentioned by chanting which one can get rid of specific issues will be given. Pay attention to it’s subtlety, implement it and find peace in life.]
Guru Agastya began:
“Though Valmeeki gave Ramayana in 7 different Kanda, the Almighty gave importance to Sundara Kanda. Navagraha Dasha, those who suffer from the Disha Bukthi, to attain the holy feet of the Lord for those who suffer with such trouble, it is the Maha Punya path that almighty has shown. Though He is the one who lets the punishment for those, we Siddhas understood that He himself is keen to provide a way out for those who wants to transform and realize their mistakes. Those who follow this with a steadfast focus, surrenders to the Lord, salvation is for certain. What they think will happen.”
“Sundara Kanda was formed to praise Hanuman. In other Kanda, the Lord showed that even He takes an avatar as human, He has to undergo the cause and effect, the Karmic effect, that He requests his Dasa (though servant is a lame translation for this word, it more suits with admirer), to praise all the heroic deeds he performed by chanting which, showed the ways for the mankind to get rid of problems.”
“Sri Rama knew that Hanuman will be the one who will bring good news, in spite of so many others went for Sita’s search. Why? Hanuman’s admiration, to carry out everything after careful research, his very nature of being a diplomat, the attitude of seeking blessings from the elders etc., Even before Hanuman set forth to Lanka, he got the blessings from Surya, Vayu and Indra and the like.”
“Whenever a good deed is initiated, it is important to seek the blessings of elders, wise men, teachers and the Lord for without blessings, nothing moves. The effect of what mankind goes through is because they forgot this. Those who will understand this, those who follow this will be given at least a peace of mind in this very Kali Yuga by the Lord. He is always ready to protect His devotees. Therefore for those who are like the devotees, those who do the work of the Lord will be helped by the Lord Almighty Himself.”
“Those for whom the Shani period (7.5 years) has started, those who are affected by the Ashtama Shani, those who have Kethu in Shani Maha Dasha, those for whom Shani Bukthi is happening in their Kethu Dasha should recite the first Sarga of the Sundara Kanda slokha everyday which will ward off those difficulties. They will not have anything as a fear.”
“Though trying through straight forward method will get the results, whoever is affected by whichever graha, if they chant the 5th, 6th and 7th Sarga of Sundara Kanda everyday, all their wishes will come true. The marriages which has obstacles will happen. The separated families will unite. Those who are unemployed will get a job. These Sargas were written for this exact purpose, the wise say.”
“Though hope is life itself, those who read the first to ninth Sarga of Sundara Kanda everyday without fail will be relieved from the effects of Rahu, Kethu and Shani forever. This is a true possibility.”
When Agastya Maha Muni recommended Naga Pradishta for Naga Sarpa Dosha, Pithru Dosha, Brahma Hathi Dosha etc., I didn’t understand them then. Now I clearly understood that if one reads all the 9 Sargas, all these doshas will ward off.
I was taking notes without asking any questions. As it was early in the morning, I felt a slight breeze from the window. A pleasant fragrance, Thulasi’s smell appeared in the same room I was seated. As I was focussed so much in taking notes, I had failed to note the fragrance before. I paused writing and looked around.
“This is enough for today. Let us continue later. Blessings!” – said the Maha Muni.
I prostrated in the Sashtanga Namaskara manner. I placed the Nadi carefully at Sri Rama’s feet and looked at him carefully with folded hands for a minute, the Thulasi garland in Sri Rama’s neck got untied and fell on the Nadi. My mind felt the goose bumps as a pleasant feeling pervading my whole body. My eyes became teary.
“This is enough my Lord! Let your blessings ward off any difficulty to those who will read the book when it gets published and bring joy in their lives.” – I prayed and came out of the pooja room. The mind was chanting ‘Om Agatheesaya Namaha’ and I went to another room and sat in the chair with my eyes closed.
