श्रीरामभुजङ्गप्रयातस्तोत्रम् - पारायणाभ्यासः

Learn to Chant Sri Rama Bhujanga-prayata Stotram

Sri Adi Shankaracharya is one of the greatest Vedantic scholars of all time. An unparalleled intellectual giant, he redefined Sanatana Dharma with emphasis on Vedanta, Jnana, and Bhakti. Among the numerous stotra-s composed by him, “Sri Rama Bhujanga-prayata Stotra” consists of 29 verses in the popular Bhujanga-prayata meter. In this Stotra, Bhagavatpadacharya extols the glory of Bhagavan Sri Rama, the scion of the Raghu dynasty. Similar to many of his other Stotra-s, Adi Shankaracharya beautifully presents both Saguna and Nirguna aspects, ultimately guiding the aspirant towards Atma-jnana or self-realisation. In this course, Smt. Brunda Karanam helps learners chant the stotram with accurate pronunciation, adhering to the rules of Samskrita-Vyakaranam & Shiksha-Shastram.

About the Teacher

Know More about the Course

Adi Shankaracharya is one of the most important Acharya-s of Sanatana Dharma. His teachings centered on the concept of Advaita Vedanta, which emphasizes the ultimate oneness of the individual (Atman) with the universal consciousness (Brahman). His philosophical works and commentaries on the Prasthanatraya (Upanishads, Bhagavadgita and Brahma Sutras) form the foundation of Vedanta Shastra.
In addition, Sri Shankaracharya made significant contributions to stotra literature. He developed the "Shanmata" system, which acknowledges six major paths, each devoted to a particular deity, while ultimately emphasizing the underlying unity of the divine. The six paths are dedicated to Vishnu (Vaishnava), Shiva (Shaiva), Shakti (Shakta), Ganapati (Ganapatya), Surya (Saura), and Skanda (Kumara). Each path venerates its chosen deity as the supreme reality while recognizing the validity of other paths. Shankaracharya's intention behind the Shanmata doctrine was to foster harmony and mutual respect among followers of different traditions, emphasizing that all paths ultimately lead to the same divine reality.
Sri Shankaracharya has composed beautiful stotra-s on all devata-s of Shanmata, all infused with the essence of Advaita. Among these stotra-s, Sri Rama Bhujanga Stotra belongs to the Vaishnava-mata, specifically Vishnu's incarnation as Srirama, the Maryada Purushottama. The power of Rama nama is highlighted in various purana-s and itihasa-s. It is a taraka-mantra, i.e., one that can help devotees cross the ocean of mortal life and achieve liberation. Purana-s mention several instances of Shiva himself proclaiming the greatness of Rama nama, including the famous shloka "srirama rama rameti". In the Sri Rama Bhujanga Stotra, the Acharya extols the greatness of Rama in granting liberation to various devotees, spanning men and women of various classes and creeds, vanaras and even rakshasa-s.
