Rama’s name is the biggest name in Hinduism. Many people keep chanting Ram’s name day and night. But today we are going to tell you about some people who have Ram’s name not only on their mouth but on the whole body.
We are talking about the Ramnami society of Chhattisgarh, whose people get tattoos of Ram’s name all over their body. These people do not go to the temple and do not even offer prayers. Along with devotion to God, social rebellion is also a reason behind tattooing.
About 100 years ago Hindus made people of this caste feel like entering the temple, since then they started tattooing Ram name on their body. The Ramnami society is also known as Ramarmiha. Many people have been following this tradition for the last 50 years.
Ramnami caste people have a population of about one lakh and their number is high in four districts of Chhattisgarh. Everyone has tattoos of Ram’s name on their entire body. These people cannot drink alcohol and it is also necessary to speak the name of Ram daily. Some people wear clothes written by Ram’s name, and on the walls of many people’s homes, you will find the name Ram.
Those who wrote Nakhshikh Rama-Rama said that the Rānamānīs are identified according to the way Rāma-Rāma is rendered. Ramnami who writes Rama-Rama in any part of the body. Shiromani to the one who wrote Ram’s name on the forehead.
