  • 3. Shantanu Bhadkamkar A.T.C. (Clearing & Shipping) P.L. Samarth RamdasSwami (1608-1681) Narayan Suryaji Thosar (Kulkarni) aka Shri Samarth Ramdas Swami was born on the auspicious day of Ram Navami to Suryaji Panth and Ranu Bai in Jamb, in Jalna District of Maharashtra. As a child, Narayan was inquisitive. He had often seen his elder brother, a Brahmin priest, take certain people into a sealed room, where he would initiate them into meditation. Curious as he was, he started inquiring into and examined religious scriptures, thereby attaining a certain level of understanding of the tenets at very tender age. On an occasion, his mother found him in meditation and inquired as to his. To this he replied, quot;Mother, I am praying for the whole Universe”. A devotee of Lord Hanuman and Lord Rama, the former of which appears in carvings on many of the established maths (monasteries) he constructed. He was also the spiritual guru of Shivaji, one of the most popular Hindu leaders in history. Early life: It was at this point that he began to isolate himself in prayer, at which his mother began to encourage his meditations. However, his family still urged him to remain secularly inclined, afraid that he would become an ascetic, so preoccupied as he was with religious study at an early age. Awakening: When Ramdas (or Narayan as he was known at the time) was twelve years of age, arrangements were made for his marriage. When he was brought before his bride to be, the priests chanted quot;Sawadhan!quot; a Marathi word that means, - quot;Be alertquot; - at which Ramdas bolted away from the ceremony. He thereafter arrived in the town of Takli, near Nasik, where he took up the practice of meditation, praying fervently to Lord Rama, the avatar of Lord Vishnu. After twelve years then, he attained realisation and received the name of Samarth Ramdas. Sajjangad and association with Shivaji: Both first met in 1649. News about plan of Afzalkhan’s attack in 1659 was licked due to few Maratha Sardars in Vijapur’s Darbaar, these sardars took help of Ramdasee people, and finally Ramdas swami has written a letter to Maharaj having secret message. Maharaj met Ramdas swami before Rajyabhishek and gave place for his ‘Ashram’ on Parali fort, later that fort was renamed as ‘Sajjangad’. Few people says Ramdas has opposed “Rajyabhishek” of Shivaji raje, but there is no historic evidence for that, when Brahmins of Paithan opposed Raje’s “Rajyabhishek”, Ramdas swami suggested Shivaji Raje to meet Kashi’s Brahmins saying that those kashi based Brahmins will surely help you. Memorable works: He wrote the 205 verses called Manache Shlok. Of his many works, Samarth Ramdas is best remembered for the Dasbodh, a guide to organising one's spiritual and worldly livelihood, for the establishment of many Matha (monastic schools) throughout the Indian subcontinent, and for the school of thought, which reflects his dynamic personality, and efficient method of organisation. He is also remembered for popularising the 13-character devotional chant of quot;Sri Rama Jaya Rama Jaya Jaya Ramaquot;. Pan-India : Full Service : Global Logistics www.atc.co.in
  • 4. Shantanu Bhadkamkar A.T.C. (Clearing & Shipping) P.L. The Dasbodh is a large book, equally useful for grihastha (married house-holder), brahmachari (bachelor) and sanyasi's (or other religion-minded persons). The seed of Dasbodh is a smaller book called Manobodh, which mainly talks about the religious absolution. Apart from these books, Ramdas also created numerous small songs, and many small shlokas (quadruplets). One such creation was the 205 numbered quot;Manache shlokaquot; (shloka's addressed to one's own mind). Another such creation was the 11 numbered quot;Bhima-Rupee Stotrequot;, which are songs of praise to Maruti, the collective name derived from the starting words of first (and the most popular) of these.
