Life story of Maharishi Valmiki

Maharishi Valmiki is believed to have been born in the house of Maharishi Kashyapa and Aditi’s ninth son Varun and his wife Chadhaishi. Maharishi Bhrigu, brother of Maharishi Valmiki, was also a great knowledgeer. The life story of Maharishi Valmiki has been very well known. According to legend, before becoming Valmiki Maharishi, his name was Ratnakar. Ratnakar used to loot others to follow his family. Once he met Narada Muni. Ratnakar tried to rob them too, so Narada Muni asked them why they do this work? Ratnakar replied that he does this for the upbringing of the family.

Narada Muni told Ratnakar that he would be willing to share the sins of the family for whom he is committing the crime. Confused, Ratnakar tied Narada Muni with a tree nearby and reached his home to find the answer to that question. His family refused to share in his sins. He was disappointed to know this. Hearing this Ratnakar returned, opened Narada Muni and fell at his feet. After that Narada Muni introduced him to the knowledge of truth and advised him to recite Rama-Rama. Ratnakar then took a dhuni rama and he started meditating on the name Ram. In meditation, the termites made their home around the body of Valmiki.

When Valmiki ji’s practice was complete, he came out of the termites’ house. Since the termites house is called Valmiki, they became known as Valmiki. Just before chanting the name of Rama, Ratnakar became Maharishi and later became famous as the great Maharishi Valmiki. Hence Maharishi Valmiki’s birthday is celebrated as Valmiki Jayanti.
