‘The Interpretation of Ramayana
As a Philosophy of Life
‘ Ra ’ means light, ‘ Ma ’ means within me, in my heart.
Rama means the Light Within Me
Rama was born to Dasharath & Kousalya.
Dasharath means ‘ Ten Chariots ’
The ten chariots symbolise the five sense organs( Gnanendriya ) & five organs of action( Karmendriya )
Kousalya means ‘ Skill ‘
The skilful 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
