Rishi Lomasa

INTRODUCTION

Rishi Lomasa was considered as one of the Gem among the rishis for his sincere devotion and constant meditation on the god, and for his kind hearted behaviour. It is believed that he lived during the Treta Yuga, and met Lord Rama, and discussed about spiritual matters with him. Once he has cursed the great rishi Kakapujandar also known as Kakabhushundi to become a crow, and afterwards worried for his act, and narrated the Ramayana incidents to him. And through that, Kakapunjandar has got sincere bhakti on Lord Rama and has become a great rishi.

Once during the treta yuga, due to his great meditation, he went deeper into the earth, since he was doing meditation for several lakhs of years. By hearing his voice inside the earth, lord rama who was returning to Ayodhya after the killing of Ravana, has cleared the place where he was meditating, and took him out. The rishi after a long time opened his eyes and enquired about him. Rama told the entire incidents which was happened in his life.

He also realized that Rama is an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, and paid his respects to him. And from then onwards he has become a great devotee of Lord Rama, and used to frequently chant his mantra “JAI SRI RAM” regularly. It is believed that now he is living in the Rishi Mandala and still doing severe meditation on the god.
