The uniqueness about Lord Rama…!!

As per Hindu scriptures, since the evolution of life on earth, God Vishnu has taken many avatars. In early stage of life, he came as Matsya (fish), Kurma (turtle) and Varaha (boar). Later during human evolutionary phase, he said to be in the form of Narasimha (man-lion) and under civilisation phase of society he appeared as Vamana (Dwarf-god), Parushram (Brahman warrior) and Lord Rama (King of Ayodhya) in Treta Yug (some believe that the Yug is named Treta because of simultaneous presence of three avatars on earth in the same time period).

Later in Dvapar Yug, he came in the form of Lord Krishna, The sampoorna avatar (The complete form). In early Kaliyug is when Gautam Buddha came and towards the end, there will be Kalki avatar, the Tenth Avartar of Lord Vishnu.

Among all nine avatars of Vishnu, Lord Rama is the only avatar with whom normal worldly human beings can easily relate. While all other avatars appeared to be far away from human abilities in terms of consciousness as well as their deeds. Therefore, doing what they have exemplified, is not at all possible by normal human beings. As it is said that do what Lord has instructed to be done But don’t follow what he has done himself. 

But this is not the case with Lord Rama. Apart from being a fully awakened avatar, Rama lived the life of a prince and presented an exemplary ideal king. His life has all the ingredients to inspire household people to follow his principles. The central message of the life of Lord Rama is to inspire all others to do what He has done in his life as a son, husband, father, prince, king and as a human being.

In today’s context, there is lot that people can learn from the life of Rama and implement the same in their lives too..

  • Leaders (business as well as political) can learn how to lead by examples (own deeds).
  • Duties and Responsibilities of an ideal Son, Brother, Husband and Father. 
  • How to prioritise between leader’s responsibilities and family duties. The harsh decisions. 
  • Important of Commitment (Raghukul Riti Sada Chali Aayi, Pran Jaye par Vachan na Jai)
  • And qualities like non-violance, compassion, learning, good conduct, self control, tranquility…. and many more…

Not only this but a simple yet challenging life of Lord Rama was full of life dilemmas, drama, suspense and surprises. People can easily relate to these issues even in today’s world. This again makes Lord Rama’s life lessons more practical to be implemented in real life.

Lord Rama is worshiped not only in India but also other counties. His temples are located in USA, Thailand, Mauritius, China, Japan, Nepal and in many European Countries.

Last but not the least, The need of the current time is that we should not limit ourselves just to worship Lord Rama but to learn from his life examples and try to adopt the way he lived his life.

We may not find it easy and may be able to adopt only few lessons but we can try to implement as much as possible. Not only this but the next generations (our kids) should also be made aware of his life examples so that they can take inspirations from Lord Rama’s life in their own way and apply as per their context and abilities.

  1. Great insights into Lord Rama’s character and qualities to showcase why he is highly revered by the masses and even the Gods themselves in Mahabharata.

  2. I prefer Lord Krishna’s character much more related to normal human beings. Lord Rama’s character was more inclined towards idealism but Lord Krishna’s character was more related to practicality of life. Since chuldhood he played with his friends without discrimninating in terms of caste, creed, or anything. He defined a new definition of love with Radha. He did all the things like normal kids do usually, playing in fields, stealing makhan, breaking handis, and irritating Maa Yashoda. Later, with Draupadi he explained the meaning of true friendship, helped her own sister in eloping with her lover, explained about the rights of a girl about marriage, and married to Rukmini and supported her. While Lord Rama asked Sita for this Agni Pariksha, Lord Krishna didnt had any intension to test her wife’s purity and sanctity. Infact, he married other few ladies to support and uplift them. Later, during he explained Arjun about his duties and responsibilities and enlightened him with Geeta Gyan. He played all politics to save and help Pandavas. He defined right from wrong. One can learn idealism from Lord Rama but I prefer Lord Krishna to be a strong leader, politician, friend, teacher, philosopher, and a guide to live a dignified and respectable life.

  3. Minisha’s comparison between Ram and Krishna is not fair, further can’t compare Math and Hindi teacher to decide who’s contribution is bigger for society.
    I mean to say that when Math is requires to calculate then can’t obtain required results with the help of Hindi, when Hindi is requires to explain/describe any thing then we can’t deliver with the help of Math
    Lord Rama set examples of sacrifice in that era that were required in that era., Lord Karisna set examples of win by hook and crook to establish Dharma and that was required in that era.
    We should not compare any one from any one else to learn on merit. We should learn whatever we require to deliver to attain goal. If we don’t require any thing than can’t say this is not good for society. For example if any Science stream student can’t say that commerce and Art stream students are not good for society like as science, which is wrong.
    I would like to suggest that Lord Rama or Krishna’s role for society can’t be describe in one blog. It should we written in a series by highlighting and correlating each act in today’s era to learn moral values, importance of Karma, strength of unity and truth etc.
