Spiritual Significance of Sri Rama Navami

Spiritual Significance of Sri Rama Navami

By
Swami Chidananda Saraswati
Sri Rama Navami is the birthday of Bhagawan Sri Rama.
On this beautiful birthday of Bhagawan Rama, let us ask ourselves the
meaning of His birth. What lessons do we learn from the Ramayana and
from the glorious example of Bhagawan Rama's life?

Bhagawan Rama exemplified the perfect person; he showed us how to embody the divine on Earth, how to live our lives in accordance with dharma and the divine principles. The story of the Ramayana is a classic, eternal, universal message of dharma versus adharma, of deva versus demon.

Ravana was a Brahmin; he was a great Vedic scholar who wrote numerous
works on scriptural philosophy. He was powerful, dynamic, and beautiful
in appearance. As the brilliant, handsome king of Lanka, he had
everything one would need to be happy and peaceful. Yet, what made him
a demon? He was arrogant, egoistic, greedy and lustful. His insatiable desires led him to crave more and more power, money, and beautiful ladies to fulfill his every whim.

Covetous desires can never be fulfilled, and the ceaseless quest for
them brings only frustration. Therefore, regardless of how smart we
are, how rich we are, or how beautiful we are, we are demons if our
hearts are filled with anger and greed. This is, in essence, the
difference between Bhagawan Rama and Ravana. Both were kings; both were
learned in the scriptures; both were charismatic; both were beautiful. What makes Rama a God and Ravana a demon?

There is one main difference: Bhagawan Rama's heart overflowed with love, generosity, humility, and a sense of duty.
Ravana's heart, in contrast, was filled with avarice, hatred, and
egoism. Under Bhagawan Rama';s divine touch, the animals became his
devotees and his divine helpers. Under Ravana's touch, even humans
became animals.

However, we ask how to be like Bhagawan Rama? How to be godly,
peaceful, and righteous? How to win " war of Lanka " within ourselves?
Bhagawan Rama has given us the perfect example through his life and his
actions…The way to attain divinity, the way to be " perfect, " the way to
be in peace instead of pieces, is to follow his clear example.
Bhagawan Rama' the forest, Bhagawan Rama did not complain, " but
not fair.” He did not fight back in anger. Rather, he helped his
father fulfill a promise; he lived according to his duty as a son and
as a future king. He did not once think about himself, his own
comforts, and his own “rights”. Rather, he abided by his dharma and his
duty.

Ravana's ego led to his own demise, first the demise of his spirit and
heart and then the demise of his body. He thought he was the one who
ran everything. He thought that he was the " doer " of it all. On the
other hand, Bhagawan Rama was always humble, and he never took credit
for anything. Even after he victoriously slew Ravana, he reported it to
Sitaji only as, " and this is where Ravana died. "

As we celebrate this auspicious holiday, as we revel in Bhagawan Rama's
birth, let us ask ourselves, " Has the Rama taken birth inside us? Has
the good in our hearts taken birth?” Ram Navami is not only a holiday about Bhagawan Rama; it’s about examining ourselves.
Life is so short. We never know when the end will come. For how long do
we want to let Ravana live in us? For how long do we want to be
controlled by Ravana? We must give birth today to Bhagawan Rama in our
hearts.
Jai Shri Ram...🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

ஒரு பல்லியால் முடியும்போது நம்மால் முடியாதா இது ஜப்பானில் நடந்த உண்மை சம்பவம் !!! ஜப்பான் நாட்டை சேர்ந்த ஒருவர் தன்னுடைய வீட்டை புதிப்பிப்பதற்காக மரத்தாலான சுவற்றை பெயர்த்து எடுத்து கொண்டு இருந்தார்.ஜப்பான் நாட்டில் பெரும்பாலும் வீடுகள் மரத்தாலயே கட்டப்பட்டிருக்கும் இரண்டு கட்டைகளுக்கு இடையில் இடைவெளி விட்டு கட்டப்பட்டிருக்கும். வீட்டு சுவற்றை பெயர்த்து எடுக்கும்போது இரண்டு கட்டைகளுக்கு இடையில் ஒரு பல்லி சிக்கி இருப்பதை பார்த்தார்.அது எப்படி சிக்கி இருக்கிறது என்று அந்த பல்லியை சுற்றி பார்த்தார்,அவர் அப்போதுதான் கவணித்தார். வெளி பகுதியில் இருந்து ஆணி அடிக்கும்போது அந்த ஆணி பல்லியின் காலில் இறங்கி இருக்கிறது. அவருக்கு ஆச்சரியமாக இருந்தது அந்த ஆணி அடித்து குறைந்தது 3 வருடம் ஆகி இருக்கும்.எப்படி இந்த பல்லி 3 ஆண்டுகள் உயிருடன் இருந்தது இதை நாம் கண்டு பிடித்து ஆக வேண்டும் என்று மேற்கொண்டு வேலை செய்யாமல் அந்த பல்லியை கண்கானித்து கொண்டு இருந்தார் சிறிது நேரம் கழித்து இன்னொரு பல்லி அதன் அருகில் வருவதை கண்டார்.அந்த பல்லி தன் வாயில் இருந்து உணவை எடுத்து சுவற்றில் சிக்கிக
