About *Ram* and *Ramayana*
The Interpretation of Ramayana as Philosophy of Life..
‘ Ra ’ means light, ‘ *Ma* ’ means *within me*,
So, Rama means the *Light Within Me*..
*Rama* was born to *Dasharath & Kousalya*.
*Dasharath* means ‘ *Ten Chariots* ’..
The ten chariots symbolize the *five sense organs*( *Gnanendriya* ) & *five organs of action*( *Karmendriya* ) ..
*Kousalya* means ‘ *Skill* ’..
*The skillful rider of the ten chariots can give birth to Ram*..
When the ten chariots are used skillfully,
*Radiance* is born within..
*Rama* was born in *Ayodhya*.
*Ayodhya* means ‘ *a place where no war can happen* ’..
When There Is No Conflict In Our Mind, Then The Radiance Can Dawn..
The *Ramayana* is not just a story which happened long ago..
It has a *philosophical*, *spiritual significance* and a *deep truth* in it..
It is said that the *Ramayana is happening in our Own Body*.
Our *Soul* is *Rama*,
Our *Mind* is *Sita*,
Our *Breath* or *Life-Force* ( *Prana*) is *Hanuman*,
Our *Awareness* is *Laxmana* and
Our *Ego* is *Ravana*..
When the *Mind* (Sita),is stolen by the *Ego* (Ravana), then the *Soul* (Rama) gets *Restless*..
Now the *SOUL* (Rama) cannot reach the *Mind* (Sita) on its own..
It has to take the help of the *Breath – the Prana* (Hanuman) by Being In *Awareness*(Laxmana)
With the help of the *Prana* (Hanuman), & *Awareness*(Laxmana),
The *Mind* (Sita) got reunited with The *Soul* (Rama) and The *Ego* (Ravana) *died/ vanished*..
*In reality Ramayana is an eternal phenomenon happening all the time*..
