Significance of Sage Valmiki Despite his upbringing as a hunter, the holy saint Narada enlightened him about the purpose of his life and made him a revered sage. He is regarded as the forerunner of Sanskrit poetry. The Ramayana, Valmiki's work, is regarded as the world's first epic poem and as such, Valmiki is hailed as Adi Kavi, the world's first poet. Sage Valmiki's mythology The legend of Valmiki tells the remarkable story of how a vicious con artist became a great sage. He was born Ratnakara to the sage Prachetasa, but when he was young, he somehow got lost in the forest. He was discovered and raised by a hunter who went by the name Valia Koli. He became a hunter, got married, and had children as time went on.

However, as he was unable to provide for his family, he began quickly to rob travelers and forest residents. He also hurt them, and over time, he turned into a feared con artist who was merciless with those who fell under his control. Valia stopped the great sage Narada as he was passing through the area once for stealing everything he owned. The coward replied that he had no choice because that was the only way he knew of supporting his family when Narada asked him if he was aware of what he was doing. But the wise man smiled and asked him a very important question: Would his family, for whom he was committing such heinous crimes, be willing to share the burden of his sins? Valia was taken aback by this liar, so she ran to his house and was shocked to find that none of his family members were willing to even consider his enormous sins. Completely baffled, he ran back, fell at Narada's feet and begged him to save him. Valia completely shattered his past under Narada's direction and undertook a severe penance, meditating on God alone and without any other thoughts. His entire body was covered in anthills as time went on. He finally became a great sage after all his sins were forgiven, and he was called Valmiki, which means "the one who was born out of the anthill."
Likewise, it was wise Narada by and by, under whose inciting that Valmiki embraced the errand of composing the holy text Ramayana, the existence history of Rama, who was the image of honorableness, the exemplification of endless respectable qualities and a vital manifestation of Master Vishnu. The enormous poem was written by Valmiki, who also remained an important character. While Rama was in exile in the forest, he went to Valmiki's Ashram with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana. They only stayed in Chitrakoot, near the sage's Ashram, on his advice. Likewise, when Rama was obliged to exile hispregnant spouse Sita to the woodland, it was Valmiki who gave sanctuary to her in his Ashram, where she conveyed her twin young men, Lav and Kush. Also their teacher and Guru, Valmiki taught the young boys everything the princes needed to know and do. Additionally, he provided them with information about Rama's life and helped them join their illustrious father.
