Lord Rama’s Promise

Mahanidhi Madan Gopal Das

It takes a lot of love and trust, in short—faith—to fully give one’s heart to another. And the ultimate expression of faith is the act of surrendering to God, which is the terra firma supporting the kingdom of divine love.

For those who are courageous enough to surrender to God, a vast unlimited fortune awaits. The following verse from Ramayana (Yuddha-kanda 18.33) portrays a very sweet current of love between Bhagavan and bhakta. Here Lord Rama promises to reward His surrendered devotee.

Sri Ramachandraji said, “It is My vow, that I will give permanent fearlessness to anyone who surrenders unto Me and prays, ‘O Rama, I am Yours!’”

sakrd eva prapanno yas, tavasmiti ca yacate,
abhayam sarvada tasmai, dadamy etad vratam mama

Man, tan, dan, Sri Rama samarpana ki jai!

Jai Jai Sri Radhe!
