He was a Brahman by birth belonging to the lineage of Bhrigu. Fate consigned him to a family of robbers which brought him up. Accidental contact with the Saptarsis - the Seven Sages and with the sage Narada changed his life. By the repetition of Ramanama or the name of Ram, he attained the supreme state of a 'maharshi' or great sage. Since a 'valmika' or an anthill had grown over his body during his long period of austerities and poised state of penance, he came to be known as Valmiki.Answered by LIPSIKA, 29 Oct '12 01:05 pm

Valmiki was innocent and very simple in his childhood--he cut the branch on which he sat---such man was turned into a Maharshi by uttering the name of Rama in a long journey of penance.Answered by sisir majumder, 29 Oct '12 01:14 pm
