Lord Rama

Shri Ram

Lord Rama, the seventh avatar of Lord Vishnu was the king of Ayodhya and is considered as the highest worshipped deity in the Vedic customs (Hinduism). Lord Rama and Lord Krishna are considered to be the most significant avatars of Vishnu. He is considered the Supreme Being, rather than an avatar in a few sects. The Vedic magnum opus Ramayana details His idealistic nature, duties toward others and renunciation.
Rama was the eldest son of the king of Ayodhya, Dasharatha and his wife Kausalya. He is referred to as Maryada Purushottama. It is to be noted that maryada means ‘limit’ and purushottama means ‘the greater than the greatest man’. Purusha means ‘man of honor’. The word uttama is made of ‘ut’ means ‘above’ and ‘tama’ is one of the modes of nature meaning ‘ignorance’. The Lord Rama is above all the tamasik qualities and He is ‘Purushottam’ meaning He is greater than the greatest or the best (uttama) men.

His wife Sita is considered to be a divine incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi and the personification of an ideal woman. The life of Lord Rama is brims with His adherence to His prescribed duties as Dharma. His journey comprised of obstacles and hard tests throughout His life. He abandoned His claim to Ayodhya's throne to honor His father’s word. He also agreed to serve an exile of fourteen years in the forest. He was accompanied by His wife and brother Lakshmana and all three spent the years in exile together. In exile Mother Sita was kidnapped by the demon king of Lanka, Ravana. After a long and grueling search for Sita, the Lord along with His Vanara sena (army of monkeys) fought an epic war against Ravana and his demonic army. This battle involved powerful and supernatural beings, destructive weaponry and magical battles. In the end the Lord defeated Ravana and freed His wife. After completing His exile He returned to Ayodhya and was crowned the king. During His rule happiness, peace, prosperity and justice prevailed. This period came to be known as Rama Rajya.

It is believed that Lord Rama was born during the Treta Yuga about 1.2 million years ago. His birthday is celebrated as Rama Navami and it falls in the month of April/May. According to Valmiki’s Ramayana, He was born in Ayodhya on the ninth day of Chaitra lunar month (March–April).

‘Rama’ is the 394th name of Lord Vishnu as per Vishnu sahasranama. The name Rama has two connotations: the supreme Brahman who is the infinitely blissful spiritual Self in whom Yogis rejoice and the One (Vishnu) who assumed the enchanting form of Rama.

Virtues of Rama

Shree Rama is considered to be the epitome of virtues. Affection, kindness, generosity and compassion for all those around Him are some of His most pious qualities. His body was attractive, awe-inspiring and exceptional. He had charismatic manners, marvelous physique and a magnetic personality. Rama was considered to be exceptionally noble, generous, chivalrous and intrepid and never spoke a lie throughout his life. He leads a simple life without any glimpse of flamboyance. He was articulate and adjusted to situations. His traits were such that He is considered as a son unequalled in the world. He always respected scholars and the elders. People loved Him and He loved them back. He was the omniscient and hence understood the hearts of all the humans in the world. He had all the characteristics of an ideal King and was the beloved to His subjects. He was blessed with all the transcendental qualities and was one of a kind.

Vehicles

His ardent devotee Hanuman was his Vehicle.

Sita as His Consort and the Battle with Ravana:

Mother Sita and Rama are religiously considered to be the avatars of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Vishnu respectively. When Rama was exiled from His kingdom, He tried to convince Sita not to join Him in the exile which would certainly be arduous and potentially dangerous. But Sita rejected this and joins Him to live in the jungle. Even when Rama ordered Her, Sita rejects it, citing that it was the very purpose of a wife to be at her husband's corner regardless of the situation he was in. Rama on His part was particularly protective and caring for Sita throughout their exile.

After Sita was kidnapped by Ravana and during their separation both of them go through great personal hardships. During this period Sita protects her chastity. She survives the year in captivity only on the depth of her love and adherence to religious values and morale. She was never once unfettered despite Ravana's courting and threats.

Rama in the meanwhile often succumbed to despair to an extent that He denounced Himself for failing to defend His wife. He was not even aware of who kidnapped He or where She was taken. He was concerned over Her safety and pains. Mother Sita was discovered by Hanuman but She refused to be rescued by Him as She knew that it is in Rama's destiny to fight and rescue Her. However, aware of Ravana’s power she was sacred for Rama’s safety. The wedding or union of Sita and Rama can be thought of as two entities coming together to form a whole. This union of Rama and Sita on Earth can be compared to the celestial union or rather reunion of Lakshmi and Vishnu.

Metaphorically speaking the union of Rama and Sita represents the relationship between the Soul and its awareness. The fight between Ram and Ravana is the battle of the soul with the distractions in ten directions to win back awareness.
