Essential message Valmiki Ramayana in haiku

Today, it is Valmiki Jayanti – the birth anniversary of the first ever writer of Sanskrit poetry – a lyrical pattern poetry that was born after a painful episode of a dove killed by a hunter and its companion going around the dead dove with grief.

His essential verses dwell on the greatness of penance, sublime spiritual life and message of self-realisation as the true aim of life while narrating Ramayana or "The Life of Rama".

Here are some of the messages culled out of Valmiki Ramayana and written as haiku.

Be richly blessed
Be sane, sing glory of Lord
In clear, sweet accent.
~*~
Be Rama – the ideal.
There won’t remain any fear,
Nor any failure.
~*~
Wash away your stains –
Of sins of bad words and deeds.
Be good, be a sage.
~*~
Wealth grips you in sin.
Adversity is fortune –
Makes humble, noble.
~*~
We leave, depart,
To seek our own fulfilment
Still bonded by love.
