Names signify


  1. Dasaratha is the chariot drawn by the ten senses. 
  2. The three wives of Dasaratha represent the three qualities, Kausalya symbolising Sathwik quality, Sumitra, Rajasik quality and Kaikeyi, Thamasik quality.
  3. Ravana is described as a demon with ten heads. These ten heads are the six vices, namely desire, anger, greed, infatuation, pride and jealousy and Manas (mind), Buddhi (intellect), Chitta (will) and Ahamkaara (Ego). Since these ten are present in every human being, all men are Ravana indeed! 
  4. Rama alone can behead ten heads! When a man surrenders himself to Rama, all these ten heads will go and he will attain Rama.

Senses


Ravana was the ten-headed demon. Was he the only demon? That demon is us with ten Indriyas out of control. They are five Janendriyas and five Karmendriyas.

British

A copper coin dating back to the British era with images of Lord Rama, Sita, Lakshmana and Hanuman on one side was found in the hundi of the Sri Sitaramachandra Swamy shrine in Bhadrachalam.
The coin in the denomination of Rupees Two Annas Eight (Rs 2/8) was issued by the East India Company in 1762. The temple staff chanced upon the rare coin during the counting of hundi collection on Monday. They handed it over to the Executive Officer Bhadrinathacharyulu.

The EO told The coin was dropped in the hundi by an anonymous devotee. “We are planning to preserve it in the separate enclosure where the rare ornaments such as Kaliki Turai and Pachala Pathakam donated by the saint composer Ramadasu are put up for public display in the temple complex,” he said.

According to the Shiva Purana, Kumbhakarna had another son called Bheema who fled to Dakini - on the ranges of the Sahyadri mountains with his mother Karkati. Bheema took an oath to destroy Lord Vishnu and began a campaign of terror based on a boon provided by Lord Brahma. When Bheema defeated a devotee of Lord Shiva and interrupted his penances, Lord Shiva destroyed Bheema and manifested himself at that location in the form of the Bheemashankar Jyotirlinga - one of the 12 jyotirlingas in existence.

'Ra', 'Aa' and 'Ma'

The three syllables 'Ra', 'Aa' and 'Ma' indicate the three causes for human birth, namely,
  1. the sins one has committed, 
  2. the troubles one experiences and 
  3. one's ignorance (Papa, Tapa, Ajnanam)

Rama" has the triple power of destroying sins, conferring peace and dispelling ignorance.
  1. "Ra" represents the root letter Agni;
  2. "Aa" represents the letter for Moon;
  3. "Ma" represents the letter for Sun.

Significance
  1. Agni (fire) destroys everything and reduces it to ashes. The letter "Ra" has the power to destroy all the sins committed by human. 
  2. The letter "Aa" (symbolizing the moon) has the power of cooling the fevers any human suffers from, and that of conferring peace on one. 
  3. "Ma" represents the Sun that dispels the darkness of ignorance and confers the illumination of wisdom. 

Many people think the origin of the name Rama was after the Rama avatar, but this name existed even before Lord Rama. It is absolutely fine to associate this name with Lord Rama. Lord Rama lived up to the name. For Krishna devotees this name sounds as Radha Madahavam. So this name is for everyone in the universe. (Living / non-living, moving / non-moving). Remember the name of Lord Rama with love. God can be realized only through love and by no other means.
