On this Ram Navami, let’s imbibe this shlok from Valmiki’s Ramayana and let us work toward our individual goal with more vigor, enthusiasm and determination. This shlok is part of the conversation between Angada (son of Sugriva) and his army (Vanar Sena) when they were on their mission to find Sita. Angada motivates his army when they had started losing their enthusiasm as they were not able to find her despite of the extensive search.
The shlok in short means, relentless efforts will bring the fruits of pursuit. On taking up an activity it is to be continued without abandoning for reasons of personal disinterestedness or laxity.
Valmiki’s Ramayana 4.49.6
अनिर्वेदम् च दाक्ष्यम् च मनसः च अपराजयम्।
कार्य सिद्धि कराणि आहुः तस्मात् एतत् ब्रवीमि अहम्॥
anirvedam ca dākṣyam ca manasaḥ ca aparājayam।
kārya siddhi karāṇi āhuḥ tasmāt etat bravīmi aham॥
Insistency, ingenuity and indomitability of heart are required for achieving results. Therefore I say so!
मन की प्रफुल्लता, उत्साह और धैर्य कार्य की सिद्धि के साधन कहें जाते है। इसीसे मैं तुम से यह केहता हूँ॥
