And i want to know where i can find sundarakanda parayanam to read in english (not in translated in english though) but in telugu and we can read it in english you know like this:
Sundara Kandam begins when Sri Hanuman commences his attempts to search Mother Sita. Sri Hanuman successfully crosses the Bay of Bengal from Skandhamana Parvatham reaches Sri Lanka and there he meets Mother Sita. He identifies himself as Lord Rama's envoy (Rama Dootha) and hands over his Lord's Ring as his identity. He gets back to Lord Rama and shared the entire story and about his meeting with Mother Sita as well as her eagerness for reunion with Lord Rama.
This is the most blessed Kandam or section in the whole of Ramayana and therefore it gains this unique name 'Sundara Kandam'. 'Sundaram' means beauty. Lord Hanuman's other name is 'Sundara'.
In Sundara Kandam, Sage Valmiki speaks about the achievements of Hanuman. For Hanuman nothing is impossible. His attitude always reminds us self-confidence, faith and devotion to Lord Rama, fearlessness, and trustworthiness.
Benefits of Sundara Kanda Parayanam
The events in this chapter bring confidence and hope from all corners. Hanuman's indulgence in the destruction of evils has proved that Dharma alone will triumph. People started believing in Dharma (good virtues). Only Lord Rama could destroy Adharma (all evil virtues).
The Kandam teaches us that, if we want to be successful in life we have to practice Dharma. The significance of reading Sundara Kandam will definitely result in prosperity and it will mitigate all problems you face in your daily life.
Reading one chapter or sargam of Sundara Kandam is equal to chanting 1000 times Gayathri Japam.
Parayana Vidhana of Sundara Kandam :
Worship Ramayana Book.
Rama with Sita,Lakshmana and Hanuman always are present wherever Ramayana book is there. So you can worship the Ramayana Book.
Naivedya should be offered to God before and after the Parayana. As Naivedya boiled milk added with Sugar is supposed to be best offering to Lord Rama.
It would be better to the devotee to Chant Rama Gayathri during the beginning, Avahana and end of the worship.
This is given by “Dasarathaya Vidhmahe, Sita vallabhata Dheemahi, Thanno Rama Prachodayath.”
Also it is essential that after the Pooja, meditation is done using the Shadakshari manthra of Rama viz “Ram Ramaya Nama.”.
At the end of the parayana you recite this sloka:
Yatra yatra Raghunatha KirtanamTatra
tatra kritha mastakanjalim
Bhaspavaan paripurna lochanam
Marutim namata rakshasanthakam
Meaning: We bow the Maruthi, Sri Hanuman, who stands with his folded above his forehead with a torrent tears flowing down his eyes wherever the Names of Lord Rama is sung.
You may conclude your Parayana for the specified day with Karpura Harathi.
