Jal Jaye Jihva Papini Ram Ke Bina
Everyone knows how the Ram Setu was constructed by the Vanaras writing Rama’s name on the rock. The bridge was held afloat by the power of Rama’s name. There is a lesser known story on the power of Rama’s name. After the passing of Ravana, one of Vibhishana’s attendants asked how the Vanaras were able to build the bridge and cross it. Vibhishana explained that the power of the name of Rama is able to conquer all obstacles. The attendant was sceptical and Vibhishana decided that a demonstration was in order.
He handed the attendant a folded up leaf with Rama’s name on it and told him to cross the ocean. The attendant may have been sceptical about Rama’s name but he had faith in Vibhishana’s words. He took the leaf and started crossing the ocean which, to his surprise was only knee deep for him. He kept walking until he reached the midway point. Then out of curiosity, he opened the leaf and read Rama’s name. His scepticism returned. How can such a simple name be so powerful as to make the ocean knee deep? Unfortunately for him, the moment he doubted the power of Rama’s name, the ocean swallowed him up.
