Instructions on how to write Raama Naamam or Likhita Japa

Lord Sri RamaWhy Should We write the Raama Naamam?

  • It is said that the word "Ram" is more powerful than the Lord Himself. Lord Hanuman could accomplish the impossible by simply uttering the Divine name of Lord Ram.
  • "Ra" is the agni beejam and "Ma" is the amrita beejam. "Ra" indicates the destroyer of ignorance in humans while "Ma" indicates the praana vaayu being nourished. Hence, the great composer, Thyagaraja Swami, a huge devotee of Lord Ram, often stressed on these beejams in his compositions.
  • The Rama naamam activates the Kundalini shakti. Continuous repetition of Rama nama discourages people to commit sins and induces in them the qualities of Lord Ram Himself.
  • One can write "Sri Rama", "Rama" or "Ram" in either English or in their own native languages.


Instructions on how to write Raama Naamam or Likhita Japa

  • It is difficult to follow stringent rules to write the Raama naama when all the members of the household are either employed or studying. So a very few, simple rules, can be followed. Otherwise, we can do it "Yadhaa Shakti", according to one's own convenience.
  • It is mandatory to take bath and wear fresh clothes while writing the Rama Naamas.
  • Before or after meals, during day or night, in all conditions and at all times, when time is available, one can write the Divine Name.
  • When writing, do not look here and there. Do not talk, do not deviate from your object. Thought, action and utterance should be united and pure.
  • With lot of enthusiasm, happiness, devotion and faith, one should write the Divine Name. One should not consider this as a burden or imposed duty and feel irritated.
  • Handwriting should be neat and arousing joy when looked at. Devotion is more important than the number.
  • With selfless mind, one should consider this as a service unto the Lord and perform it with complete dedication.
  • After completion of a Rama Koti book, if one has an opportunity, a holy person should be fed.
  • After completion of each book, one has to offer the Likhita Japa mentally unto the Lord, and keep it in their Puja room and worship it like the Chosen Deity.


రామకోటి రాయడానికి కొన్ని నియమాలు పాటించాల్సి ఉంటుంది.

  • రామకోటి రాయాలన్న మీ సంకల్పాన్ని ముందు దేవుడి దగ్గర మానసికంగా సంకల్పం చేసుకోండి.
  • శ్రీరామ అని రాసే వీలున్న కోటి గళ్ళు ఉన్నా పుస్తకం తెచ్చుకోండి. లేదా మీరే ఒక తెల్లకాగితాలతో పుస్తకం తయారుచేసుకోండి.
  • మంచి రోజు చూసుకుని పుస్తకానికి పసుపు, కుంకుమ రాసి దేవుని సన్నిధిలో ఉంచి పుష్పాలతో, శ్రీ రామ అష్టోత్తరశతనామావళి తో పూజించండి. తరవాత పుస్తకం కళ్ళకద్దుకుని రాయడంప్రారంభించండి.
  • రామకోటి రాసేటప్పుడు ఇతర వ్యాపకాలు, ఆలోచనలు పెట్టుకోకుండా స్థితిమితంగా శ్రీరామ అనుకుంటూ మనసును కేంద్రీకరించి రాయండి.
  • అనుకోకుండా మంధ్యలో ఏదైనా పని మీద వెళ్ళవలసి వస్తే ఒక సరి సంఖ్యలో రాయడం ఆపి పుస్తకంమూసి నమస్కరించి వెళ్ళండి. పని అయిపోయిన తర్వాత కాళ్ళు , చేతులు కడుక్కొని శుచిగా మళ్ళీ రాయడం మొదలుపెట్టండి.
  • రామకోటి రాసే పుస్తకం జాగ్రత్తగా భద్రపరచండి. అందులో ఇతర విషయాలు ఏవీ రాయకూడదు. దానికి ఉపయోగించేకలాన్ని కూడా విడిగా ఉంచుకోవడం శ్రేయస్కరం.
  • రామకోటి రాయడానికి ప్రత్యేకమైన సమయం అంటూ ఏదీ లేదు. కాని శుచి, శుభ్రత, పవిత్రత, ప్రశాంతత మాత్రం తప్పక పాటించాలి. ఒకవేళ ఎప్పుడైనా నిద్రవస్తుంది అనుకుంటే బలవంతంగారాయకుండా ఆపేయాలి.
  • ప్రతి లక్ష నామాలకు ప్రత్యెక పూజ,నివేదన చేసి ప్రసాదాన్ని పంచాలి.
  • రామకోటి రాయడం పూర్తీ అయిన తర్వాత శక్తి అనుసారంగా పూజ,నివేదనలు సమర్పించి ఆరాధన చేయడం మంచిది.
  • పూర్తయిన రామకోటి పుస్తకాన్ని పసుపు బట్టలో కట్టి భద్రాచలంలోని రామచంద్రుడికి సమర్పించాలి. లేదా ఏదైనారాముని గుడిలో ,ఆధ్యాత్మిక సంష్తకు అప్పగించాలి. అదీ వీలుకాకుంటే నదిలో వదలాలి.
