Obedient


Today how many of us have people who still obey our parents? In this age, we are forgetting to take care of our parents. But when Dasaratha (father of Ram) asked him to go to exile for 14 years, Ram did not ask any reason for this. Would you expect this to be possible in today's time? In the present time, People are ready to shed blood even of their own family members for money.

Friendship

Friendship is not done by seeing religion, caste or color, this message is clearly well explained in Ramayana. Rama and Nishadraj Guha were very good friends. Nishadraj Guha helped Rama, Sita, and Lakshman to cross river Ganga. Lord Rama came from the mighty Suryavanshi family and Guha was the king of Nishadas. But Lord Rama did not think about which background was Guha from before making him a friend but rather he promised Nishadraj Guha that whenever he comes back to Ayodhya he will meet him first.




Love- The best message of Ramayana



Between the Brothers



Lord Rama respected everyone. That's why he is also called Maryada Purushottam. When Bharat was given the opportunity to be the king of Ayodhya, he rejected this offer and said only Lord Ram will be the king of Ayodhya. This was pure love bonding between the two brothers. Bharat then went to find Rama to bring him back to Ayodhya. Rama did not agree to go back to Ayodhya. Rama said to Bharat that it is his duty to fulfill his father's promise. Also, we can't forget the sacrifices Laxman made for Rama.

Rama was loved equally by his 3 mothers until Manthara provoked Kaikai and it resulted in Rama's exile. Bharat was angry on her mother Kaikai but Rama was not angry on her. This shows the character of Rama. When Rama returned Ayodhya after finishing exile, he first met Kaikai and asked her whether she cooked his favorite food or not. Do you forgive any person who treat you badly? That's why Rama is Maryada Purushottam.

Duty of King is above all family relations


What message does life of Lord Rama and Ramayana convey


Ram had to send Sita to exile despite not wanting because people were doubting Sita's character. People are the first family for a king and for this reason Rama had no option left.
Rama did not send Sita to exile for his happiness because if he was happy in this, he would not have gone to Lanka to save Sita.




Recently Supreme Court Of India announced a judgment in Ram Temple Case. Congratulation to all the devotees of Lord Rama including me. In today's time, we are somehow forgetting the value of our culture and religion. No one can be Rama ever but we can apply some value of Lord Rama.

I am sorry if I am mistakenly have done some errors. I am working on myself. Need your support, so share it with the devotee of Lord Rama. May God Bless You.

Jai Shri Ram
