Re: Bala Kaanda and Uttara Kaanda
We know the rāmāyaṇam consists of 24,000 śloka-s within 7 kāṇḍa-s ( a bundle, joint, heap ~ chapter~). Yet talk to us about the 1st letter of each section ( 1,000 x 24 = 24,000) coming from the gāyatrī hymn¹ (mantra). What is the significance? What is vālmīki-ji¹ telling us?
- tát savitúr váreṇyam |
bhárgo devásya dhīmahi|
dhíyo yó naḥ pracodáyāt || ṛg-veda 3rd maṇḍala, 62.10
- vālmīki’s birth name was ratnakkardaḥ; the term valmiki means 'ant hill'.
because you are identical with śiva
