PrAchetasA

Discussion about this name came in the last Sunday lecture. Valmiki, intervening in the battle between Lav,
Kush and Ram, informs Rama that the former are indeed his children.  Sita now enters the scene. Valimiki in his declaration about Sita being pure refers to himself as PrAchetasA.

Bramha has ten mAnasa putras (mind-born sons). One among them (I think the last one) was Prachetas. Valmiki is the son of Prachetas.
