The renowned embodiment of righteousness & virtuosity – Maryada Purshotam

With most adorable traits with immense prowess full of idealism

The Avtara of Lord Vishnu – the one who stood for Truth

A reservoir of humility with simplicity in abundance

Tolerance, harmony and elderly reverence

That an offspring should profusely be having

For the parents the most adoring.

Lord Rama left for exile, leaving everything and everybody

Most dear ones too in Ayodhya,

When his father King Dashratha of Ayodhya

Is constrained to act on the promises made in the past

To his wife Kakai – mother of Shri Bharata

And step-mother of Lord Shri Rama

Who had saved Shri Dashratha’s life once,

By putting her own life in danger,

Consequently, extracting two promises for fulfilling

At a time and occasion of her own choosing,

Manthra – the courtier of Kakai too showed her true color,

In making Queen Kakai realize the promises,

Crown for her son Shri Bharata

And 14 years in exile for Shri Rama.

Shri Ramji, as expected, accepted exile for fourteen long years.

And that too without slightest demur,

He embraced the life simplest in the forest,

Subsisting on the fruits and herbs that existed there,

Truly speaking, that is the crux of a lesson for today’s younger generation,

Maa Sitaji the consort of Shri Rama

With brother Lakshmana too accompanied Shri Rama.

Who despite his knowledge of Vedas and being the fondest Bhaktas of Lord Shiva

Ruined his name and fame along with the knowledge he had had thus attained

Vijaydashmi should establish a kingdom of love,

Overflowing with peace, full of tolerance, a feeling of goodwill for all,

A kingdom of love for everybody, leaving none

For it is a celebration for destruction of evil

  1. Good morning and thank you very much for this great article, my dear spiritual friend across the oceans. Besides it seems that you could fix the issue with the obnoxious transposition of the ads on your list of articles, which had impeded me to access this one a few days ago. This may be one of the shortest and yet most substantive articles that you might have penned (according to my humble opinion at least) It is indeed auspicious that, in order to celebrate the birthday of Lord Rama (a major deity of Hinduism), you had chosen to say in a few words how he has influenced the lives of millions of Indians, prodding them to follow the righteous path. Moreover your account of how Shri Ramji accepted his exile for fourteen years and led a simple life in the woods, eating Natures’ produce without harming any living beings, is a major lesson for all of us.We do not really know what world will come out of this tragic pandemic but we hope that it will be more benign, tolerant and equal than this one. We will survive or perish together. My regards to your lovely, devoted wife.
    A big hug. Arrivederci.
