Lord Ram is humble, dignified, a perfect personification of THE IDEAL HUMAN BEING. Lord Rama is the 7th incarnation of Lord Vishnu as a mortal being in this realm of reality. In a high juxtaposed way to his other avatar(Lord Krishna), Rama has marked his presence with an extremely mild attitude and very cool take on things. He stands an epitome for Truth, Justice and the true Hindutva.
These 7 life lessons from Lord Ram will motivate you to become a better version of yourself. Listed down are the best there is to learn from this exceptional mythical god which will stay as:
1. Never Give Up
It may take a day, weeks or even years, when you fix onto a goal, never back down. Sita was held captive by Ravan, king of Lanka and searching for his beloved took Rama an enormous amount of time and he never backed down or even thought of giving up. Such is the power of love and the dedication one has towards his/her goals.
If Rama took up a task, He always completed that successfully. He never did anything half-heartedly, be it killing the demons in the forest or helping Sugreeva kill Vali or completing the 14 year in exile. Determination and commitment will never fail you.
2. Respect Your Elders
Lord Ram showed us that the dharma of a child is to obey the elders, by following the words of His parents and Guru always. We should value and follow the advise of our elders and teachers. He agreed to take on monsters like Thataki at the mere asking of his father and went to a life of exile at the wish of his stepmother. He is the very embodiment of Aadharsh Balak.
You might not approve of your parent’s actions but in the long run, they might have made the best choice for your own greater good.
3. Importance Of Friends
Once He made friends with anyone, He did everything He could to help them…like Sugreeva and Vibhishana. He never forgot His friends. Be a true friend! Laxman and Hanuman are more than brother and a devotee of Lord Rama. They’re the closest friends to Rama and have proven that time and again. As a brother, he had trusted the weight of the kingdom to his brother Bharat and the responsibility of the family to his brother Shatrughna.
Friends always have your back in however tight the spot your in. Your family and siblings are the best of the friends you’ll ever find in your life.
4. Modesty is the Best Policy
He’s the most skilled archer there is. He has a thorough knowledge of the greatest Astras and Shastras to employ upon. But all of that power and knowledge has NEVER put an ounce of arrogance in his path of vision and his humility is unparalleled.
You may be the best there is at what you do. But keeping that output in a check is a must
Lord Rama savoured fruits offered to Him by Shabri, a poor old women, after she had tasted each one of them. She had nothing much to offer – but love. Love can come to us in any form and from anyone…be ready to accept it.
5. Keep Calm
He has fought great wars, mythical monsters and has had traumatic experiences but never did he lose his cool or even filched a bit. An enormous level of control and impeccable control over his feelings and emotions has been the signature attribute of Lord Rama since the beginning of the mythos.
Whatever may be the situation, try and keep a cool head. You panicking won’t help solve the crisis.
6. Prejudice Is Never The Solution
When Ravan’s brother Vibhishan came to Rama as he was banished from his own kingdom, Rama never a moment, had any prejudice against him even when his followers were not sure about it. When they all understood the value of Vibhishan’s knowledge and expertise and how it helped them, they began to see the foresightedness of Rama.
Prejudice is never the key. Something might seem off about what you might have encountered but look past the common attributes and you will see the real values of people and situations/opportunities.
7. True Love
Lord Rama left no stones unturned when it came to rescuing his wife Sita from the clutches of the King of Lanka, Ravana. He was left heartbroken to find Sita abducted by the cruel demon King but his strong will and ardent efforts helped him stage a war against Ravana and take his wife back to home
Lord Rama has never in his life thought of any other woman in his life than Sita. He took upon to battle the greatest villain of all times when his wife has been abducted. His love for his wife was the main blurb and the entire Jist of Ramayana.
