रामाय रामभद्राय रामचन्द्राय वेधसे ।
रघुनाथाय नाथाय सीतायाः पतये नमः ॥
रामं रामानुजं सीतां भरतं भरतानुजम् ।
सुग्रीवं वायुसूनुं च प्रणमामि पुनः पुनः ॥
वेदवेद्ये परे पुंसि जाते दशरथात्मजे।
वेदः प्राचेतसादासीत् साक्षाद् रामायणात्मना ॥

Ramaya Ramabhadraya Ramachandraya Vedase.
Raghunathaya Nathay Sitayaah Pataye Namah Om
Ram Ramanujam Sitam Bharatam Bharatanujam.
Sugriva Vayusunuch Pranamami again.
Dasharatmaje go beyond Vedavedeya to Punsi.
Vedas: Prachetasadasit Sakshad Ramayanaatmana.

Introduction of Maharishi Valmiki:-

Some people call Maharishi Valmiki a low caste. But in Valmiki Ramayana (Ramayan in English) and Adhyatma Ramayana, he himself has called himself the son of Pracheta. In Manusmriti, Prachetasam Vasistham ch Bhrigun Nardamev ch Pracheta is written as Vasistha, Narada, Pulastya, brother of poet, etc. In the Vaishakh Mahatmya of Skanda Purana, he has been described as a huntsman of birth after birth. It is proved from this that they were huntsman after birth. Even before the birth of the huntsman, there was a Brahmin named Stambha, Sri Vatsagotriya. He became ‘Agnisarma’ (Ratnakar from Matantar) in the second birth by chanting the name of Rama from the satsang of Shankh Rishi in the vyadh birth. There too, some days with the association of hunters, they were engaged in hunting activities due to certain rituals. Then, by chanting from the Satsang of the Saptarishis, Valmiki (earth heap with termite) fell to him and became famous as Valmiki, and Valmiki composed the Ramayana. In Bangla’s Krittivas Ramayana, Manas, Adhyatmarama, Anand Ramayana Rajya Kand Bhavishya Purana Pratisarg, this story is a little bit turbulent and clear. In fact, Goswami Tulsidas did not write this story baseless. That’s why considering them as a low caste is a complete illusion.
