Sri Rama Karnamrutham English
Rama Karnamrutham is a series of 178 verses praising Rama and was composed by Bodhendral. It is our misfortune that this book is not as famous as Sri Krishna Karnamrutham of Leela Shuka. One reason could be that again by our bad luck, its popularity is confined only to Tamil Nadu. This is a humble attempt to popularize it.

I salute with my head Lord Ramachandra who is friend of Sugreeva ,
Who is divinely pure , who is consort of Sita , Who has new golden belt,
Who is treasure of mercy and who has eyes like the lotus leaf.
171.Sri Raghavethi Ramanethi raghudwahethi ,
Ramethi Ravana harethi Ramaadhavethi,
SAketha nadha sumukhethi scha suvrautheyji,
Vani sadaa vadathu Rama , hare harethi.
Oh Rama let my speech always tell , Oh Raghava , Oh Lord who makes others happy ,
Oh the best of Raghu clan , Oh killer of Ravana , Oh consort of Lakshmi ,
Oh Lord of Ayodhya, Oh Lord with a good face , Oh Lord who observes great penances,Oh Hari. Oh Hari.
172, Sri ramamrutha manthra bheejam sanjeevanam chethmanasi prathishtam,
Halahalam cha pralayaanalam vaa mruthyor Mukham vaa vithadhi karothi.
The seed of the nectar like Rama is a life giving chant ,
Which if planted and grown in the mind would make useless ,
The Halahala poison , The fire of deluge and face of God of death.
173.Kim Yoga sasthrai kim sesha vidhyayaa ,
Kim yaagangaathi visesha theerthai ,
Kim Brahmacharyaasrama sancharena BHakthir,
Na che ththe Raghu vamsa keerthiyaam.
Oh mind , if you do not have at least little devotion on the famous,
Lotus like feet of Sri Ramachandra, What is the use of learning and practicing Yoga?
What is the use of other knowledge?, What is the use of fire sacrifices,
What is the use of visiting sacred waters ? and What is use of practicing Brahmacharya?
174 Idham sareeram sladha sandhi jarjaram ,
Pathathya vasyam parinaama pesalam,
Kimoushadham pruchasi mooda, durmathe ,
Niramayam Rama kadhamrutham pibha.
oh evil brained , the joints of your body have become weak,
And one day without informing you it will fall down and you are asking now,
“What is the medicine for this?” , oh fool by drinking the nectar ,
Of the story of Rama, you would never again get a body.
175.Hey Ramabadhrasraya, hey krupaalo , hey bhaktha lokaika saranya moorthe,
Puneehi maam thwad charanaravindham jagath pavithram saranam mamaasthu.
Hey Ramabhadra whom every one depends, Hey merciful one, Hey protector of devotees,
Please make me pure and let your lotus like feet whichmakes everything pure be my support.
176.Neelapradehanikhil- esa, jagannivasa,
RAjeeva nethra, Ramaneeya gunabhirama,
SRidhama, daithya kula mardhana Ramachandra ,
Thwad pada padmamanisam kalayaami chithe.
Oh God of blue colour , Oh God of all , Oh Lord who is everywhere in the world,
Oh lotus eyed one , Oh pretty one with pretty qualities,
Oh residence of Lakshmi , Oh killer of Rakshasas, Oh Ramachandra,
I always think of your lotus like feet in my mind.
177,Sri Ramachandra, Karunakara , Dheenabhandho,
Sita samedha, BHarathagraja Raghavesa ,
Paparthi banjana Bhayathura Dheena bandho,
Papambudhou pathitha mudhara maam anadham.
Oh Ramachandra , oh merciful one , Oh friend of the oppressed,
Oh Consort of Sita, Oh elder brother of BHaratha, Oh God Raghava ,
Oh friend of those suffering due to great fear ,
Please uplift me who is drowning in the ocean of sin.
178.Indheevara Shyamalam INdhu koti nibhananam,
Kandharpa koti lavanyam Vandheham Raghu nandanam.
I salute the son of Raghu clan, who is black like Indheevara flowers,
Who has a face like crores of moons and who is as pretty as one crore Manmathas.
Sri Rama Karnamrutham SAmpoornam
Thus ends the honey ears of Lord Rama.
