Lord Rama is always remembered as “Maryada Purushottam” or the “ Ideal Man” – The Man without any flaws!

Whether the incidents really took place or whether it is an author’s imagination, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is the message that Ram’s life tries to convey.

Being the eldest of all brothers, responsibility, maturity & sacrifice came naturally to Him & He was always ready to sacrifice self for the good of others. No wonder, people took undue advantage of Him and put Him through difficult situations but He was unflustered and stuck to His dharma – because that’s what real men are supposed to do.

  • He spent 14 years in exile facing extreme hardships for a promise that was made by His father – Promises are to be kept irrespective of whether they turn out to be a loss-making proposition. That’s what he taught the world.
  • Sita & Lakshman walked beside Him without asking any questions – your Actions make you Trustworthy Dependable in the eyes of others and once that is established people will go to any extent to stand beside you.
  • The only constant thing in this world is change & the biggest master in this world is Time. However, you can make the master as your slave, if you are prepared to Adapt in any situation. He was at ease in the palace and He happily adjusted to the life in the forest.
  • If you choose to do what is Right over what is convenient, the results will be long-lasting & sweet. He upheld Dharma ( The Right Way ) in all circumstances.
  • Forgiveness is a virtue which will help you not only travel light, without any past baggage but will also free your mind to focus on building the future. He Forgave people & freed his mind to focus on better things in life.
  • People are not wrong, circumstances drive them towards wrong objectives. He killed Ravana but at the same instructed Lakshman to Learn as much from him because He knew that despite Ravana’s wrong actions, he was a great scholar. Learning is a continuous activity and one must not hesitate to pick up the good in others.
  • People might criticize his decision to abandon Sita but symbolically it was a big message to the world – Uneasy lies the Head that wears the crown. With authority comes great responsibility& any person at the helm of the affairs has to act with great diligence.

All these qualities made him Godlike and when He returned home on a dark night, the entire country people lit up their houses and streets to welcome him. The pitch darkness was killed by the bright light of positivity and happiness. Symbolically this also teaches us that if you make a concerted effort to light up your mind with knowledge & positivity, then even the darkest of fears & uncertainties can be dispelled.

His life is such a large ocean of learning s that if we just drink one drop, our entire life can become an enlightened one.

This Diwali, let’s make a conscious effort to connect with our loved ones and try to imbibe Lord Rama’s life lessons in whatever small manner possible in our lives. Even a small change is capable of bringing large impacts in our lives.

Happy Diwali !!
