With the help of my Sanskrit Professor

I give you some translation of


Nradya Sahita 5.48b-57a
(jmadagnya rmasya mantroddhra
prakra)
The method of recitation of the
mantra of Jmadagni Rma
(Paraurma).

I will describe the attainment of
perfection through the mantra of
Jmadagni Rma.
dvitya aha vargat tu bja
rmasya krtitam
The second letter of the sixth group of
consonants (ra) is the seed of Rma

(i.e. r)
praavnte tu bhagavan naty ugra
padam eva ca 49
Saluting the violent feet of Rma after
chanting okara,
uddhtya tejase pact sanamaska
tu mantrapam
one who loudly chants it (the
bjkara) for the sake of effulgence or
intelligence should prostrate
afterwards.

the water of a flooding river. (Standing
in water doing japa will be more
effective)

Paraurma Dhynas (I still have to do
more research but apparently there
are three meditation lokas one for
Sttvika Paraurma, Rjasika
Paraurma and Tmasika
Paraurma. I have to ask my
Pcartra guru what these different
forms are worshiped for.)
