  • according to mythology it wasn't narada who changed the course of life of valmiki.. it was the saptha rushulu(seven saints). once they were crossing the forest on there way of visiting holy places on the Earth. ratnakar was hiding behind a tree, waiting for his chance to rob travelers. he saw seven saints and attacked them. the seven saints told him that they have no gold or money or any earthily treasure but they have a grater treasure with them-knowledge. they said stealing from others is not a good idea and told to change his course.. and to pray to god to forgive him for all the ill he did. he said as he is illeterate he doesnt know how to pray so they said to him to meditate by saying'MARA'. actually Ma Ra if inverted is RA MA.i.e RAMA.. so when he started to say continuously 'mara'like maramaramara u can do it urself. within few seconds u will observe that instead of saying MARA as u started u r saying RAMA.. so he prayed for a lnog time.. till that time an ant hill was built upon his immovable body.. when the seven sages were returning back from their journey they heard the name RAMA and went to the ant hill and called ratnakar as VALMIKI.. and blessed him that u will b a rushi from now. so once when rushi valmiki was having morning bath he saw two krounch birds being intimately and caring each other. he was enjoying there affection when all of a sudden male bird was hit by an arrow and fell down. the female bird flew down and was crying and trying to lift the male bird and was circling around him and suddenly fell to ground - died beside her partner. seeing this scene valmiki got angry on the hunter and in the angry he told the hunter that he will feel the same feeling of losing some one dear to him. he said this in sanskrit( it started with word ma nishadh...). he was stunned by himself after saying the words.. as he was an illiterate. Suddenly narada appeared before him and told that goddess saraswathi had given her blessings to him due to which he said those word unknowingly. valmiki was so happy to hear that and he inquired naradha that is there any noble man on earth with all goodness. naradha said ' indeed , yes he is lord rama.' and told valmiki to write ramayana {rama+ayana=rama+story).
