Al-Jahiz 9th century Muslim historian writes:
"The Hindus excel in astrology, mathematics, medicine and in various other sciences. They have developed to perfection arts like sculpture, painting, and architecture. They have collections of poetry, philosophy, literature, and science of morals. From India we received the book called Kalilah wa Dimnah. These people have judgment and are brave. They possess the virtues of cleanliness and purity. Contemplation has originated with them."
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has been in the forefront to enrich Hindus with the grandeur and richness of Sanatana through a volume of literature unknown to the mankind. One of the books dealing with greatness of Sanatana Dharma is carried out by Ramayana. Who ever reads Ramayana, one realize the importance the name “Rama” itself. The one who chanted Jai Shree Rama is like taking bath in holy rivers like Ganga, Yamuna, Saraswati, Indus, Pushkar, Narmada, etc. Also, the one who chanted the name of Ram is like visiting the four pilgrimages.
Jai Shri Ram literally translates as “Victory to Lord Ram,” a popular Hindu deity. But while this seemingly harmless phrase originated as a pious declaration of devotion in India, it is today increasingly deployed not only as a Hindu chauvinist slogan but also as a threat to anyone who dares to challenge Hindu supremacy.
The slogan "Jai Shree Ram" is a popular expression in Hinduism, particularly among devotees of Lord Rama. It carries the following meanings:
1.    Victory to Lord Rama: "Jai Shree Ram" can be translated as "Victory to Lord Rama." It is an invocation and declaration of devotion to Lord Rama, who is revered as the seventh avatar (incarnation) of Lord Vishnu.
2.    Celebration of Lord Rama's greatness: The slogan is a way of celebrating the greatness, virtues, and divine qualities of Lord Rama. It acknowledges and pays homage to his righteous and heroic deeds as depicted in the Hindu epic, the Ramayana.
3.    Unity and solidarity: "Jai Shree Ram" also serves as a unifying slogan that brings together people who share a deep reverence for Lord Rama. It fosters a sense of community and solidarity among devotees, as they join in chanting and expressing their devotion to Lord Rama.
4.    Protection and blessings: Uttering the slogan "Jai Shree Ram" is believed to invoke the divine presence of Lord Rama, seeking his protection, blessings, and guidance in various aspects of life. It is a way of seeking his grace and divine intervention.
Overall, "Jai Shree Ram" encapsulates reverence, devotion, and the celebration of Lord Rama's divine qualities and his triumphs. It has become a significant slogan and a rallying cry for those who hold Lord Rama in high regard and seek to honor his legacy.
An article by “Spread Spirituality” enumerated some of the some of the glories of this holy sentence which are described in the scriptures.
•    It is written in the scriptures that a person should chant the name of Jai Shree Ram or Ram throughout his life. A man who does not do this and indulges in vile things is like a foolish person who has taken a piece of glass by throwing a philosopher’s stone in his hand.
•    Tulsidas says that the name of Ram in today’s age is like that of Wish-Fulfilling Divine Tree that does the welfare of man. Only the name of the Lord can get rid of the vicious cycle of this dark age. Poor Tulsi also became Tulsidas by chanting Jai Shree Ram.

•    The glory of the Lord’s name is so miraculous that the stones float on the water due to his name being inscribed. Lord Ram’s army had tied a bridge over the sea to Sri Lanka by writing the name of Lord Shree Ram on the stones.
•    It is written in the scriptures that Lord Shree Ram has been praised in more than a hundred billion words. Each of its characters is capable of destroying enormity like killing.
•    It has been said in the scriptures that even by deception, by chanting Jai Shree Ram or Ram, all sins are destroyed as if cotton is consumed by burning in fire.
•    Tulsidas wrote that the name of Ram is such a medicine that if his name is taken with full faith, one gets freedom from even the biggest disease.
