Bishwanath Singh:
Ramachandra is considered to be the seventh avatar of Vishnu in Hinduism, and a mythological king of Ayodhya in ancient Indian Puranas. Based on Puranic genealogy, Ram is believed by Hindus to have lived during 1450 BC, during the Rig Vedi...c period. Ram is one of the many popular figures and deities in Hinduism, specifically Vaishnavism and Vaishnava religious scriptures in South and Southeast Asia. Most of the details of Rama's life come from the Ramayana, one of the two great epics of India.Ram was born as the eldest son of Kausalya and Dasharatha, king of Ayodhya, Rama is referred to within Hinduism as Maryada Purushottama,literally the Perfect Man or Lord of Self-Control or Lord of Virtue. Rama had married Sita whom Hindus consider to be an avatar of Lakshmi and the embodiment of perfect womanhood. The life and journey of Ram is one of perfect adherence to dharma despite harsh tests of life and time. He is pictured as the ideal man and the perfect replica of human-being. For the sake of his father's honour, Ram abandoned his claim to Kaushala's throne to serve an exile of fourteen years in the forest. His wife Sita and brother Lakshmana, being unable to live without Ram, decided to join him, and all three spent the fourteen years in exile together. This leads to the kidnapping of Sita by Ravana, the demon king of monarch of Lanka. After a long and arduous search that tested His personal strength and virtue, Ram had fought a colossal war against Ravana's armies. In a war of powerful and magical beings, greatly destructive weaponry and battles, Ram had killed Ravana in battle and liberates his wife. Having completed his exile, Ram returned to Ayodhya along with His brother Lakshman, spouse Sita and Hanuman besides Sugreev,Bibhishan,Angad & other courtiers and was soon crowned as king in Ayodhya (the capital of his Kaushal kingdom) and eventually became emperor, after which he reigned for eleven thousand years – an era of perfect happiness, peace, prosperity and justice known as Rama Rajya. Ram's courage in searching for Sita and fighting a terrible war to rescue his wife and their honour is complemented by Sita's absolute devotion to her husband's love, and perfect chastity despite being Ravana's captive. Ram's younger brothers, namely Lakshmana, Shatrughna and Bharata strongly compliment His virtue and strength, and they are believed by many to belong to the Maryada Purushottama and the Seventh Avatara, mainly embodied by Ram. Ram's piety and virtue attract powerful and devoted allies such as Hanuman and the Vanaras of Kishkindha, with whose help he rescues Sita. The legend of Ram is deeply influential and popular in the societies of the Indian subcontinent and across South East Asia. Ram is revered for his unending compassion, courage and devotion to religious values and duty. Truly, it has been said that Lord Ram is our savior and omnipresent who looks after our all comforts.Let us join all of us to pay our humble obeisance’s to the lotus feet of Lord Ram,his brothers Lord Bharat, Lord Lakshman & Lord Shatrughan and his spouse Her Excellency Goddess Sita and his great devotee like Lord Hanuman and seek their bliss for well-being of all of living-being of this universe!
