Rajaram Ramachandran Poems

To make a glass cup
It takes few minutes,
But to break it up,
It takes split seconds.

Gautama Buddha was the founder of Buddhism Religion. He was born in 560 BC and died at the age of 80 in 480 BC. His life story is known to the world as a popular reformer in the spiritual world. His life story goes:


This story is from the famous epic Mahabharat and has been retold by many authours in several languages. The Father of Nation, Mahatma Gandhi loved this story for its moral that speaks of faith in the truth, honesty and courage. Some 600 years ago, a famous Tamil Poet Veerakavirayar wrote in Tamil Harichandran Puranam in the Tamil Venba style. He was an Aasu Kavi (Spontaneous Poet) next to Kalamegam of ancient times. It is next to impossible to translate his work in English word by word. He has written more than 1000 verses running to more than 600 pages. I have, however, brought in some of his excellence in about 76 pages in my own simple style for the reading pleasure of the world poetry lovers. The readers are requested to send their comments to my email address: rajaram1931@gmail.com, for which I will be grateful to them. The story goes starting with a prayer song to Gods in the heaven.

Prayer to Lord Ganesh.

SWAMI VIVEKANANDA (A brief introduction)

Swamiji was the first religious ambassador to America, in which land he was recognized for his talents and deep knowledge in the Hindu ancient scriptures and religion. He was advocating for Universal Religion. Every world citizen should read his speeches in 9 Volumes released by the Ramakrishna Mission Association.. His life story starts with the Birth of Hinduism.

A cow was tied to a peg
But allowed to go on its legs.
Its rope moved in cycle.
It grazed inside this circle,

The day’s newspaper shook my heart.
I can only shed a tear on my part.
A heartless father shot his daughter.
It was like an animal slaughter.

A rich man built up a stadium,
In a ground to play every game.
On the day of inauguration,
There was a big congregation.

Gautama Buddha was born,
In the year 560 BC, as a son
To King Suddhodana, his father,
And Queen Maya, his mother.

Late one night, an old man
Came with his old woman
And his servant to visit
Thyagaraja, the Saint.

Ayodhya, the Capital City
Was famous for its gaiety,
With its entrance gates
Shining like ornaments.

After paying tax, other kings left.
King Harichandran then kept
For counseling a few courtiers
On some important matters.

Time waited for none.
Years rolled on and on.
Child Narendra grew up well,
As a boy strong and tall.

'Oh, Lord! By morn, I blossom,
And by eve, I wither,
Then, of what use, I'm? '
Cried the fluttering flower.

Once, Ananda, the disciple,
Who was thirsty, went to a well
To drink water and saw on the spot,
A girl drawing water in her pot.

From astrologers the King heard,
The same what Sage Asita told,
But added, “He’ll become a monk
In the holy order of highest rank.”

A beautiful courtesan,
Amrapali, had a big garden
Where Buddha stayed once,
Along with his disciples.

All the members met Buddha,
Except Princes Yashodhara,
Who said, “Here he’ll come,
If I’m of any value to him.”

Buddha was always keen
On one taking quick action,
And in support, he told
A story of two birds.

Buddha wanted peace.
He sent two disciples
To Devadatta’s place
To settle any difference.

King Ajatashatru heard
That Devedatta had died.
He had lost his best friend,
Who stood ever by his side.

The Best Poem Of Rajaram Ramachandran

Marriage's Made In Heaven

To make a glass cup
It takes few minutes,
But to break it up,
It takes split seconds.

We smell the rose
Not by crushing it,
But thro' the nose,
By handling it soft.

The baby with care
Her mother fondles
As she wants to share
Her love with kisses.

Likewise, a marriage
That's made in Heaven,
Confirms a life bondage
Between man and woman.

Marriage's a sacred institution,
A bachelor wants to get in
But feeling it a great burden,
Thereafter, out he wants to run.

The wife's like a rose
The husband should feel,
And he is like a glass
With care she should handle.

Any divorce, will there be
If each one respects,
Whatever any difference be,
The other one's feelings?

Will the Heaven pardon
If they break their ties,
Violating its sanction,
For few silly reasons?

Firstly, I bow before you O Great Messenger of Love and Peace! I am a newcomer to this site. I just had a glance through the title of your poems and was highly impressed. That your pen has been able to throw light on the profound greatness of such array of luminaries of humanity and spirituality is really appreciable. In course of time I will take time to read more of them. Meanwhile I would like you to know that I have pasted here a collection of my poems on the well known social worker late Baba Amte. I think you would be interested in reading more about him. I would like you to kindly go through some of them at your convenience, give your valuable comments and help me spread his universal message of harmony between man and man and between man and nature.

You have written - ' And what's seen is unreal! ' But what I have read and felt is real... any other word would be flattery and just leaves me elated. Tears of joy fill my eyes everytime I read those beautiful thoughts expressed in a very simple language that communicates with my brain in a powerful manner. You are a living wonder - an AMUDHASURABHI OF VERSALITY IN THOUGHT AND EXPRESSION. Words fail me as I bow my head in respect to Thee. With lots of prayers and respectful regards, Sarda Mohan
