Lord Narada told Maharishi Valmiki that the good deeds of the sins we commit have to be endured in this world. That is why all the sins that you will commit in this birth, you will have to suffer in this birth. In this way Maharishi Valmiki received divine knowledge at the behest of Narada. After receiving the divine knowledge of Maharishi Valmiki , he went to the Ratnakar forest to do penance for many years. It is said that during the austerity, ants made their home on Maharishi Valmiki body. Even under so much pain, Maharishi Valmiki did not break his penance.

In this way Narada ji introduced Maharishi Valmiki to the knowledge of truth and also taught Maharishi Valmiki  to chant Ram-naam. But the special thing is that Maharishi Valmiki could not pronounce the name ‘Ram’. Narada ji then told Maharishi Valmiki a way to chant mara-mara. At the behest of Narada Ji, Maharishi Valmiki spoke mara and this became ‘ram’.
