Updated: Jul 4


कबीर दास के दोहे

The Ramayana is an ancient book written by the sage Valmiki in Sanskrit. He narrated the inspiring life of Lord Ram. Goswami Tulsidas composed the Ramcharitmanas in the Awadhi language, which is a retelling of the Ramayana. The Ramcharitmanas consists of 7 Kands (books) and 4608 chaupais.


myNachiketa presents eight Ramayana ki chaupaiyan for children, with simple meanings and impactful messages that praise the inspiring and divine character of Lord Ram. These verses teach us to live an ideal life filled with truth and goodness, just like Lord Ram.


Ramayan ki chaupaiyan 1

1. Chaupai

एक अनीह अरूप अनामा। अज सच्चिदानंद पर धामा॥

ब्यापक बिस्वरूप भगवाना। तेहिं धरि देह चरित कृत नाना॥

Ek aneeh aroop anama. Aj sachchidanand par dhama.

Byapak biswaroop Bhagwana. Tehin dhari deh charit krit nana.


Meaning

This verse from the Ramayana says that God is the one who has no desires, no form, and no name. He is unborn, the symbol of truth, consciousness, bliss (Satchidananda), and the ultimate reality. The entire universe is an expansion of His form. This same God has taken the divine body and performed many sacred acts.


Message

Children, just as God remains always happy without asking for anything, we should also not repeatedly ask our parents for new things. Instead, we should be content with whatever they lovingly give us.

2. Chaupai

पुनि मन बचन कर्म रघुनायक। चरन कमल बंदउँ सब लायक॥राजीवनयन धरें धनु सायक। भगत बिपति भंजन सुखदायक॥

Puni man bachan karma raghunayak. Charan kamal bandau sab layak.

Rajivanayan dharen dhanu sayak. Bhagat bipati bhanjan sukhadayak.


Meaning

In this verse from the Ramayana, Tulsidasji prays to Lord Shri Rama, who is lotus-eyed, carries a bow and arrow, and removes the sufferings of his devotees, bringing them happiness through his thoughts, words, and deeds.


Message

We should always be grateful to God because He removes our troubles and keeps us happy.

3. Chaupai

हरि अनंत हरि कथा अनंता। कहहिं सुनहिं बहुबिधि सब संता॥

रामचंद्र के चरित सुहाए। कलप कोटि लगि जाहिं न गाए॥

Hari anant Hari katha ananta. Kahahin sunahin bahubidhi sab santa.

Ramachandra ke charit suhaaye. Kalap koti lagi jaahin na gaaye.


Meaning

God is infinite; He has neither a beginning nor an end, and His story is also infinite. All saints describe and listen to His story in various ways. No amount of time is enough to describe the beautiful character of God.


Message

Children, knowledge is limitless, the more we learn the more is left to be learnt. Therefore, we should always strive to gain as much knowledge as possible.

4. Chaupai

उभय अगम जुग सुगम नाम तें। कहेउँ नामु बड़ ब्रह्म राम तें॥

ब्यापकु एकु ब्रह्म अबिनासी। सत चेतन घन आनँद रासी॥

Ubhay agam jug sugam naam ten. Kaheun naamu bar Brahm Ram ten.

Byapaku ek Brahm abinasi. Sat chetan ghan aanand rasi.


Meaning

Understanding God with form and without form is not easy, but by chanting His name, both forms can be easily known. This is why Tulsidasji says that God's name is greater than His visible and invisible forms. However, God is one, omnipresent, and eternal. He is truth (Sat), consciousness (Chit), and bliss (Ananda).


Message

God is one but appears in different forms. By remembering God repeatedly, we can understand His true nature.

जा पर कृपा राम की होई। ता पर कृपा करहिं सब कोई ॥

जिनके कपट, दम्भ नहिं माया। तिनके हृदय बसहु रघुराया ॥

Jinake kapat, dambh nahin maya. Tinake hriday basahu RaghuRaya.

8. Chaupai

निज गुन श्रवन सुनत सकुचाहीं। पर गुन सुनत अधिक हरषाहीं॥

सम सीतल नहिं त्यागहिं नीती। सरल सुभाउ सबहि सन प्रीति॥

Nij gun shravan sunat sakuchaahi. Par gun sunat adhik harshaahi.

Sam seetal nahin tyagahin neeti. Saral subhau sabahi san preeti.


Meaning

We should not be proud of our virtues and always treat everyone with the best behaviour.
