Love is in the Air - Protector



Day 16 A to Z Challenge 2015 - Protector


Forest life largely peaceful
The three made it their home
The wicked should be fearful
With Rama and Lakshman on the roam

Many disturbances often deadly
Rama destroyed them made the forest safe
Lakshman ever watchful and ready
By Rama's side his only place


So why did Lakshman choose to go with them?  Without Rama at the palace, Lakshman's importance would increase as it was Lakshman who accompanied Rama when Vishwamitra took them to continue their education and Lakshman had learned all that Rama had. And then there was Urmilla his wife to think of.

But Lakshman was prepared to sacrifice everything for Rama. He loved Rama with all his heart and soul. He simply could not imagine life without Rama. And he had the perfect counterpart in Urmilla who was the epitome of understanding. Her deep love for Lakshman would never question his decision and she would always stand by his side in the larger interests of others.

But most important of all, Lakshman's purpose on Earth was to assist the Lord. Lakshman was not only Rama's younger brother and devoted in serving him, but also his confidante, his wise counsel and when necessary also his protector. Lakshman took care of the dangers of the forest when Rama and Sita spent their personal time together or when Rama needed a rest after many battles.

Lakshman and Urmilla are true examples of selfless love and understanding who sacrificed their personal lives for the good of others. Urmilla loved her sister Sita dearly and served both Sumitra (her mother-in-law) and Kaushalya (Sita's mother-in-law) with love and care.

And Rama loved them dearly too. Urmilla gave him peace of mind that his mothers Kaushalya and Sumitra would be taken care of by Urmilla. His kingdom would be looked after well by Bharat in his absence and Shatrughan his younger half brother and Lakshman's twin would protect his kingdom until his return.

Even though Kaikeyi hatched the plot for Bharat to be king, Bharat loved Rama so dearly that he refused the kingdom and instead administered it at Rama's request until his return.

But Sita and Lakshman were his dearest. Sita was his cosmic breath, his power and strength, and Lakshman was his armour.

Rama needed them all in his earthly incarnation to bring peace on Earth. Rama started that process by bringing peace to the forest and protecting all who lived in it (creatures great and small) by ending the reign of many evil influences.

But did Did Rama and Sita's love blossom in the forest?  That story brought by the letter Q.

Love is in the air.  May you find love in many forms and may all your relationships be loving and understanding  like Sita and Rama's, like Lakshman and Urmilla's, like Rama and Lakshman's, like Sita and Urmilla's.

The Ramayana is a historical chronicle of events during the life of Lord Rama in an ancient time in a land called Bharatvarsh a part of which is now modern day India. 

This year's theme was given to me through meditation. But more than just a theme I was also asked to write this from the perspective of Divine love and not just a recounting of the events as they took place. Hence the essence of my posts is "Love is in the air".

The individual theme and tone of my verses are also given to me. And I try to convey what Spirit wants to say through my poetry and prose. In essence, I only transcribe what is given to me, the author of these posts is my soul, the Universe, God and Goddess.

Love is in the Air - Opportunity



Day 15 A to Z Challenge 2015 - Opportunity

Opportunity thought Rama and smiled
Affection for Sita to show
The palace walls were to confined
For love to play and grow

For Sita anywhere was home
If Rama was by her side
Her love for him like the sun it shone
No need now for it to hide

Lord Rama could have annihilated evil in so many ways. Did he really have to go into the forest? Why did Divinity choose this fate for Himself?

There were many reasons for this. Rama had more to learn about the harnessing of spiritual powers. He learned that from many ascetics he met in the forest. These were needed if he was to restore balance to the earth by the ending of evil. But annihilation of evil does not come from a single stroke, it needed to occur systematically.

But why did Sita have to leave the comforts of the palace and be with Rama? Sita, the daughter of Mother Earth, was at home in her natural surroundings. For her, home was where Rama was. Without him, she felt she was bereft of life itself. For Rama, Sita was his strength and life force. Soulmates incarnate for a common purpose, and God and Goddess needed to be together, their divine energies needed to be merged to complete their tasks on Earth.

But God and Goddess also arrived to experience and enjoy a human birth. Rama and Sita also came to experience love in human form and for that they needed to be away from the palace, away from the royal protocols, away from the multitude of people that came by their way every moment of every day. And what better than a secluded forest, far away from civilization. Not only did love between them need to be strong but they needed to unconditionally trust each other, for their love would be severely tested in the future.

Rama and Sita had a great love for not only mankind but all creation. Being in the midst of Nature was most conducive for spiritual understanding and for love to grow. There was a sense of freedom for them, like breathing in clean mountain air that invigorates.

And what about Lakshman? Why did he choose to go with them?  Those questions answered in my post tomorrow.

Love is in the air. May you find the perfect means for your love to grow and may it continue to grow.

Love is in the Air - Nexus



Day 14 A to Z Challenge 2015 - Nexus


Rama, Sita, Lakshman in simplicity
Set forth for adventures new
Fulfilling many destinies
Did Rama arrange this too?

Life often takes unexpected turns
Seems desolate and unfair
But blessings lie in many burdens
Though in your face they do not stare.


Rama and Sita embark on a new phase of their lives accompanied by Lakshman. They leave to begin their simple lives as ascetics in the forest. God and Goddess about to commence their journey to fulfil their Spiritual purpose on Earth - the annihilation of evil from the Earth. And along the way, helping to fulfil so many destinies.

In a previous incarnation Sita as Vedvati had cursed Ravana when he had attempted to molest her, that she would be the cause of his death in her next life.  Ravana was the mortal incarnation of a gatekeeper of Vaikunth the abode of Lord Vishnu. Having made fun of some young Brahmins, they cursed him to take a mortal birth. Only Lord Vishnu in a human incarnation could free him from the curse.

Dashrath's destiny and karmic payback lay in the separation with his most beloved son and a realisation that it was Kaushalya who was the divine mother and his strength. Unfortunately for Dashrath, this was the end for him, never to see his Rama again.

Kaikeyi's father's kingdom had been ravaged by demonic and evil men She vowed that one day she would be the cause of their annhilation. Divinity was on the way to fulfilling that wish.  Kaikeyi's moments of sad repentance and understanding of the wisdom within (and not without in the form of Manthara) and the true meaning of selfless love was to begin.

Kaushalya and Sumitra were to face their biggest test of forgiveness towards Kaikeyi.

Urmila (Lakshman's wife) demonstrated the true aspects of selfless love - understanding and sacrifice for a greater cause.

That one event that Kaikeyi started (in my Love Misplaced post)  commenced a series of events and intricately connected destinies. So many for God and Goddess to help fulfil. So many soul lessons to learn, so many sacrifices made. So much love God and Goddess showing for mankind.

How do Rama, Sita and Lakshman adapt to life in the forest?  That's brought by the letter O

Love is in the air. May we remember that in difficult situations lie great opportunities for spiritual learning and soul growth. May we have the faith that in the end life is as it should be.
