Narada is known to have reformed Lord Valmiki by teaching Him to worship God. He meditated for many years, so much so that Ant-hills grew around his body. Finally, a divine voice declared his penance successful, bestowing Him with the name 'Valmiki': "one born out of ant-hills" (Valmikam in Sanskrit means Ant-hill). Happy Valmiki Jayanti!
