Sri Rama Stotram Lyrics & Rama Mantra Meditation

In this sri rama stotram collection, I am giving some most popular slokas or verses for worshipping God "Sri Rama" who is an incarnation of Vishnu during Treta Yuga.

There is also one most powerful mantra of Rama (known as Sri Rama Rama Rameti mantra) that brings huge benefits for you. It is believed that Lord Shiva revealed this mantra to Parvati when she asked for a shorter version of Vishnu Sahasranamam.

It is given as the fourth lyric under each of the three language options below.


Hindi / Sanskrit Text

आपदा मप हर्तारम् दातारम सर्व सम्पदाम्
लोकाभिरामम् श्री रामम् भूयो भूयो नमाम्यहम् ॥

श्री राघवम् दशरथात्मज मप्रमेयम्
सीता पतिम् रघुकुलान्वय रत्न दीपम्
आजानु बाहुम् अरविन्द दलायताक्षम्
रामम् निशाचर विनाश करम् नमामि   ॥

रामाय रामभद्राय रामचन्द्राय वेधसे
रघुनाथाय नाथाय सीताया: पतये नमः  ।॥

श्री राम राम रामेति रमे रामे मनोरमे
सहस्र नाम तत्तुल्यम् राम नाम वरानने ॥





Telugu Text

శ్రీరామ స్తోత్రాలు 

ఆపదా మపహర్తారం దాతారం సర్వ సంపదామ్
లోకాభిరామం శ్రీ రామం భూయో భూయో నమామ్యహమ్ ॥

శ్రీ రాఘవం  దశరథాత్మజ మప్రమేయం
సీతాపతిం  రఘు కులాన్వయ రత్న దీపమ్
ఆజాను బాహుం అరవింద దళాయతాక్షం
రామం నిశాచర వినాశకరం నమామి  ॥

రామాయ రామభద్రాయ రామచంద్రాయ వేధసే
రఘునాథాయ నాథాయ సీతాయా పతయే నమ: ॥

శ్రీ రామ రామ రామేతి రమే రామే మనోరమే
సహస్ర నామ తత్తుల్యమ్ రామ నామ వరాననే ॥

Meanings for Sri Rama Stotram in English 

Sloka (1)
aapadaam = troubles, apahartaaram = destroyer or remover, daataaram = bestower or giver, sarva= all, sampadaam = wealth, lokaabhiraamam = chief or Lord of lokas (all worlds), Shri raamam = to that Sri Rama, bhooyo bhooyo = again and again, namaamyaham = I am paying respects (by folding hands or prostrating on floor).

So, the full meaning of this sloka is as follows:-

Sloka (2)

Sloka (3)
Raamaaya = to Rama, raamabhadraaya = one known as Ramabhadra (Rama stayed at a hill known as Bhadrachal. So he is known as Ramabhadra), raamachandraaya = Rama shines like the moon. So he is known as Ramachandra., vEdhase = in the Vedas (Veda is a holy scripture), Raghu naathaaya = among all raghuvansha kings, naathaaya = he is the Lord, seethaayaa pataye = husband of Sita, namaha = salutations.

The full meaning of this third sloka is as follows:-
My salutations to Rama who is also known as Ramabhadra and Ramachandra, who is mentioned in Vedas as the greatest lord of Raghuvansha and the whole world, and who is the consort of Sita.


Sloka (4)- 
This is actually a mantra having the full powers of Vishnu Sahasranamam. 

This sloka was actually disclosed by Lord Shiva himself to his consort Parvati.

Parvati was too much alarmed about the ignorance and the agonies faced by people. When God imparted the Vishnu Sahasranamam as the only remedy for people to get rid of their worldly sins and troubles, Parvati got worried. She felt sorry for the layman who cannot recite those highly standard verses.

So, she asked her Lord Shiva to provide a simplified version of Vishnu Sahasranamam. Then, Shiva disclosed to her about the power of the word "Rama". He tells her that taking the name of "Rama" three times is equal to the recitation of the whole text of Vishnu Sahasranamam.

So, here goes the meaning of this powerful mantra.

Shri Rama, Rama, Raameti = Rama, Rama, and Rama in this manner taking the name 3 times;
ramE = to play or enjoy; raamE = beautiful play with the word of Rama; manOramE = Hey Parvati; (who is good looking and appealing to the heart and soul), sahasranaama = 1000 names; tattulyam = equals to; raama Naama = Rama's name; varaananE = is gifted with.

So, the full essence of this 4th hymn"sri rama rama rameti sloka" is that taking the name of "Rama" three times is equal to and is empowered with the powers that can be obtained by way of reciting the entire 1000 names of Vishnu. Know this fact, You, O Good looking Parvati!
