It is said that Valmiki was named ‘Agni Sharma’ at birth and was renamed Valmiki later in life. Through his deeds in his lifetime, he got the title of ‘Maharishi’ meaning ‘the great sage’. While his exact year and time of birth is still not clear and is debated among historians and mythology enthusiasts, his birthday falls on the Ashwin Purnima as per Hindu lunar calendar, or around this time of the year as per the Gregorian calendar. As such, it is honoured and celebrated as Valmiki Jayanti.

Here are some wishes and cards that you can share with family and friends on the occasion — taking lessons from the life of the great safe, who started as a dacoit named ‘Ratnakar’, but later transformed his life and became a better human being who was always at the service of the Lord.
