Shree Ram Jai Ram mantra translation in English:
„Praise Ram The Great Ram”.
Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram is the mantra that Lord Hanuman is always singing. Rama is the name that Maharaj-ji always had on his lips. It is the sacred mantra that bestows devotion to God and purifies the heart. In addition, chant this mantra with a sincere heart for dissolving the negative karma.
Rama, the perfect avatar of the Supreme Protector Vishnu (the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu), is an all-time favorite among Hindu deities.
Lord Rama is said to have taken birth on earth to destroy the evil forces of the age, and was the eldest son of Dasharatha, the king of Ayodhya. Dasharatha had 3 wives namely, Sumitra, Kaushalya and Kaikeyi. According to some versions of Ramayana (ancient Indian heroic epic poem), Lord Rama had an elder sister also. Dasharatha had a daughter from his first wife Kaushalya. Her name was Shanta and she was given for the adoption to Romapada. Later Shanta was married to Sage Rishyasringa. This daughter was born before the king Dasharatha got married to two other queens Sumitra and Kaikeyi.
More importantly, Hindus believe that Lord Rama lived in the Treta Yug. But according to historians, Lord Rama was not especially deified until the 11th century AD. Tulsidas’ outstanding retelling of the Sanskrit epic into the vernaculars as the „Ramcharitmanas”, greatly enhanced the popularity of Lord Rama as a Hindu god, and gave rise to various devotional groups.
Rama, in the words of Swami Vivekananda (an Indian Hindu monk), is „the embodiment of truth, of morality, the ideal son, the ideal husband, and above all, the ideal king”.
Although Krishna and Rama, both incarnations of Lord Vishnu (the Supreme God), are almost equally popular among Hindu devotees, Lord Rama is seen as an archetype of righteousness and the most sought-after virtues in life, in contrast to Lord Krishna’s shenanigans and dalliances.
Rama was a paragon of virtues. Lord Rama was not only kind and affectionate but generous and considerate of feelings for all around him. Rama had a marvelous physique and captivating manners. He was extremely helpful, noble, chivalrous and fearless. Lord Rama was very simple and absolutely free from flamboyance.
