Sundarakāṇḍam (of ŚrīmadvālmīkiRāmāyaṇam) is one of the most celebrated scriptures of the Sanātana Dharma. It is considered as the treasure house of divine values and wisdom which enlighten the seekers and lead them towards Self-realization. Traditional scholars and Gurus mention about Sundarakāṇḍam as an Anugraha Grantha which showers blessings on its devotees and fulfills all desires – śreyas and preyas.
As the name indicates, Sundarakāṇḍa is the most beautiful part of Vālmīki Rāmāyaṇa. It is equipped with an exceptionally beautiful poetry and contains multiple knowledge systems within its womb, along with an interesting storyline.
The entire essence of Rāmāyaṇā is summarized in Sundarakāṇḍa and each śloka of it is considerd as a mantra. Through contemplating on Sundarakāṇḍa regularly, we can understand that the grantha contains Value Education, interesting descriptions about Construction, Political Science, about the Earth and the Moon, about Anger management, about Stress management, about Leadership principles, about Employee behaviour, about Animal behaviour, about Communication skills, about Psychological handling of situations, about ‘what if’ analysis, dreams and prophecies, etc.
The sādhakas who study, recite or even listen to the Sundarakāṇḍa are bestowed with the same auspicious results.
Here, Sundarakāṇḍa is presented in a Pravacana style by Vyoma Sanskrit Brothers, Sri Venkat and Sri Vishwanath, in Tamil language. Through these discourses we can experience those divine aspects of Sundarakāṇda and enhance our knowledge about the scripture.
Special features of these discourses include discussion about greatness of Rāmāyaṇam, Rāma nāma, greatness of the word ‘Sundara’, methods of pārāyaṇam, modern relevance for each incident in Sundarakāṇḍam, and what we can learn and implement today (eg:Maināka, Surasā, Simhikā, Laṅkiṇī incidents, evidence collected by Hanumān, pativratā related stories, etc.) and sharing of few mahāmantras from Sundarakāṇḍam.
