Sage Sutikshna was a disciple of Sage Agastya, and he has learned all the divine subjects under his guidance. After finishing his education, he decided to grant Guru Dakshina to his Guru Agastya, and asked his wishes. Sage Agastya had demanded him to bring Rama before him in order to discuss with Lord Rama. But that time, Lord Rama didn’t take his avatar in this earth. But the great disciple didn’t think all about these. He had constructed an ashram in the forest, and started meditating by chanting the Rama Mantra “JAI SRIRAM”. He didn’t take any food and keep on chanting the Rama Mantra for several years, and due to that, he has become very weak, and he looked very thin.
Finally one day, Lord Rama came to the forest during his exile period. He met Sutikshna and both of them embraced each other. Afterwards, Sutikshna had told to Lord Rama to meet his Guru Sage Agastya, and both of them met each other, and they gave several boons to the great sage Sutikshana.
It is believed that Sage Sutikshna’s ashram is located in the present day Uttar Pradesh, and he is considered to be the true disciple of Sage Agastya.
Let us worship the great sage and be blessed.
