I have vowed to give this slokam to 108 devotees, so am using this forum to spread the greatness of Emperuman Sree Raman and His Siriya Tiruvadi- Sundarar/ Hanumar.
We all know that Sundara Kanda prayanam bestows peace and prosperity in household and minds. It is almost no rules, no bars parayanam. Still, for one like me reading even one sargam in a day is rather difficult till I get used to the words.
For such devotees, this Nava Sloka Sundara Kandam is very effective. And gives the same phalam as reading full Valmiki Sundara Kandam (VSK).
This abridged version comprises nine specially chosen verses from Punya Mahakavi Valmiki's Ramayanam. Each stanza corresponds to an action by Hanumar in searching for and finding Seetapiratti. Also, each slokam corresponds to a particular planet and has a definite phalam attached to its repeated chanting.
Slokam 1 is attached herewith. This slokam corresponds to Sun God, associated gem stone is Ruby.
Phalam: To shine like Surya Bhagawan in life, achieve success and good health.
Meaning: This first slokam is at the beginning of VSK. Jambavan reminds Sundarar of all His divine powers that He has forgotten and exhorts Him to search for Seeta.
Tatparyam: This slokam corresponds to Surya Bhagwan and is considered as good as Gayatri Mantram.
