kausalyaa suprajaa raama puurvaa sa.ndhyaa pravartate |
uttiSTha nara shaarduula kartavyam daivamaahnikam || 1-23-2

2. kausalya su praajaa = Kausalya, the lucky, begetter [Kausalya is fortunate because she begot you, such as you are]; raama= oh, Rama; puurva sandhya= eastern, aurora; pra vartate= verily, emerging; uttiSTha= get up; nara shaarduula= man, the tiger; daivam= to gods; aahnikam= daytime tasks; kartavyam= is to be performed.

“Fortunate is Kausalya to beget you as her son Rama… get up oh, tigerly-man, eastern aurora is emerging, daytime tasks towards gods are to be performed.” [1-23-2]

This is another celebrated verse chanted even today. So far Rama is a dear prince to his parents. But here, no less than Sage Vishvamitra said to have deified Rama in asking him to ‘get up’ from divine trance to undertake the human duties to eliminate evil, like the dawn of the sun eliminating the evil darkness. In other ancient manuscripts the same verse obtains as:

kausaly˜ m˜taruttiÿ÷a p¨rv˜ sandhy˜ up˜syat˜m |
paurva ˜hõikam vidhim kartum t˜ta k˜lo’yam ˜gata× ||

This early morning ‘awakening’ of Vishnu or his incarnates from divine trance is a common practice in Vaishnavaite tradition, and is followed even today, called suprabhaata seva , morning service to wake up.

At the rising of the sun as well as at noon certain observances, invocations, and prayers were prescribed which might under no circumstances be omitted. One of these observances was the recitation of the Sávitri, [Gayatri, so to say,] a Vedic hymn to the Sun of wonderful beauty – Gorresio.

Sri Sita Rama Jeyam.
