Sanskrit poem on Ramayana – read in reverse becomes Mahabharata!

RamaKrishna Viloma Kavyam, a 14th century Sanskrit poem written by Surya Pandita is an amazing work of literature. Works like these are testimonials to the greatness of Sanskrit language. Below is the first verse of this poem.

तं भूसुतामुक्तिमुदारहासं
वन्दे यतो भव्यभवं दयाश्रीः ।
श्रीयादवं भव्यभतोयदेवं
संहारदामुक्तिमुतासुभूतम् ॥ १॥

The first half of each verse of this poem is about Rama and Ramayana. The second half of each verse is about Krishna and Mahabharata. Now comes the most important aspect of this magical work of Sanskrit literature. The second half of each verse is the exact reverse of the first half!

As you can see in the first verse above, “श्रीयादवं भव्यभतोयदेवं संहारदामुक्तिमुतासुभूतम्” is the exact syllable reversal of “तं भूसुतामुक्तिमुदारहासं वन्दे यतो भव्यभवं दयाश्रीः” !! All the verses of this poem are like this.

In other words, each verse of this poem is a perfect palindrome, the first half of the palindrome being about Ramayana and the second half being about Mahabharata! Hats off to the author of this great work.

This poem is in Tristubh meter. It is a vedic meter with 44 syllables, so 4 lines with 11 syllables each.

Hence, the first 22 syllabes of each verse in this poem are about Rama and Ramayana, while the last 22 syllables are about Krishna and Mahabharata. Reading the first 22 syllables in reverse will yield the last 22 syllables of each verse!!

No wonder that Sanskrit, a language designed by ancient Indians, is a treasure trove of knowledge.
