Ram Navmi - the blessed day when Lord Rama descended on earth

The enchanting name – ‘Sri Ram’ has a magical spell that creates an eternal sensation for us. The word Ram stands for someone who is supreme power or the absolute one. Sri Rama is not only regarded as divinity but he is the symbol of sensitivity for Indian ethnicity and spiritual heritage for unknown period of time. As per our mythological sources, Lord Rama was born in the era of Treta and he was the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu who is known to be the redeemer of the whole Universe.

He embodies truth, honesty, generosity, benevolence, and responsibility and courageousness altogether. Born in a royal family, Sri Rama was free from majestic extravagance that life had offered him.  He lived with his principles and virtues that had made him a living God when he actually existed.

As per the mythological and Vedic studies, Ram was born in the royal family of Ayodhya to King Dasharath and Queen Kaushlaya some 7000 years ago which was calculated as 5114 BC, Shukla Paksha, on the ninth day of chaitra Navratri. Following legendary beliefs, whenever there will be injustice or inequality on this earth, the Saviour, Lord Vishnu will descend to save humankind, to do justice and honour truthfulness. Rama was born in the age of Treta to fight against immorality and wickedness.

Rama, the eldest son of the royal family was endowed with selfless love, compassion, and respects for everyone, for him, his step mothers Mata Kaikeyi and Mata Sumitra both belonged to the equal level of respect with his own mother. He had pledged that being the successor of the royal dynasty he would never be biased and the residents of the legendary city of Ayodhya would never face injustice or inequality. Ram faced the hardest ever situation when his step mother Kaikeyi conspired against him and planned for his exile for 14 long years. Rama was the son of the soil and he loved his people from the core of his heart. He was in distress when he had to get separated from his family and the natives but to honour the wishes of his step mother he never retreated from his decision.

Sri Rama was accompanied by his wife Sita and his step brother Sri Lakhsmana, during his exile of extended 14 years. A prince lived in the midst of woods and renounced every magnificent luxury of life. Lord Rama’s life is considered to be a greatest ever teaching that negative situations or hardships may come to all but bearing that pain with smile is what we should focus on. He sacrificed his own happiness for the sake of others and that was the justice that he decided to do for all instead of facing sufferings. He has always been revered during all ages and distinctively called as Maryada Purushottama. This is to clarify that Maryada means 'limit' and Purushottama stands for 'the greater than the greatest man'.

Being the seventh reincarnation of Lord Vishnu, Rama could live a happy life but he chose to live the life of a simple human being who experienced pain and agony throughout his life. He lived with his virtues and taught us how to sacrifice life for the sake of others and how to show mercy. He showed what selfless love could be. He also proved that his love for his wife Sita was pure but he was committed to his promises and sacrificed his beloved also.

Sri Rama is not only the divine authority but he is the mirror reflection of common human being who has to go through all agonizing phases of life. Lord Rama should exist forever in our soul  with his purity.
