Any untoward happening is sure to upset the even keel of life and cause restlessness and worries. Whatever be the nature of the occurrence, be it a physical harm, financial loss or psychological upheaval, such dangers are sure to affect any individual deeply and throw life out of gears.
This sloka invokes Lord Rama and describes his adventures. Rama is considered as one of the very important incarnations of Lord Vishnu, the God of protection and sustenance. He lived a life of exemplary character and by his own impeccable practice, demonstrated to the world, the highest standards of morality. The Sanskrit word ‘Rama’ stands for one, who charms all by his noble thoughts, kind behavior and right actions. In his Rama Avatar, the Lord showed to the world the ideal way of living, by he himself being an ideal son, ideal brother, ideal husband, ideal warrior, ideal ruler and above all, an ideal human being.
This prayer to Rama is believed to get his unstinted blessings for the devotees and protect them from all types of threats and dangers.
Lord Rama is the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Lord Rama is said to have taken birth on Earth to annihilate the evil forces of the age. He is always portrayed holding a bow and arrow, indicating his readiness to destroy evils. He is also called "Shri Rama". More commonly he is pictured in a family style, (Ram Parivar) with his wife Sita, brother Lakshman and devotee Hanuman who is sitting near Lord Rama's feet. Lord Rama is also known as Purushottama which means the best of men, or the supreme Purusaa (personality).

I bow to Lord Sri Ramachandran who is the son of Kowsalya, who killed Thadaka, who guarded the Yagna of Rishi Vishwamitra, who removed the curse of Agalya, who broke the Sivadhanush. He is the Consort of Maa Sita, and though he lived in a forest never got upset. He is the one who killed Kara Dushan and Mareesan. He is the God of Hanuman, he alleviates the anxiety of Sugreeva, and he is the son of the Sun, accompanied by monkey troops and his brother Lakshman. He is the one who killed Raavan and is loved by Sita.
By chanting this sloka, one can realize the significant effect of the same and it is especially significant chanting this on Sri Ramachandramurthy’s Janma Nakshatra day i.e., on the day of Punarpoosam Nakshtra; all kind of dangers would then vanish.
