Ramanavami Day

March 31, 2004

Ramanavami day greetings to one and all!It is on this ninth day of the new moon Rama was born in Ayodhya in Treta Yuga. Very important is that all the four brothers are born on this day and on this same day they got married and on this day Rama was finally on the throne.It is not so easy to pardon Kaikeyi for what she has done that over-night the things have changed from a festive mood to grave situation. But with a noble heart one can pardon her. But it is just impossible to pardon Manthara who poisoned the mind of Kaikeyi for no reason. Bharata too could not pardon her even though in many respects Bharatha showed the qualitites matching with that of Rama. But when Rama returned from the forest and he found everybody with great joy and happiness, he started searching for Manthara. Finally when he found her in the dark room locked up not being able to pardon self. Rama goes to her addressing her as mother. He wiped her tears saying how much he loves her. He recollected all the wonderful incidents from his childhood in how many ways she has taken care of his happiness. He made her forget all her evil doings and brought life to her. Incidents of this nature are in abundance in the life of Rama. Let us look into ourselves and find out how much we can pardon and also make them feel that it is our pardoning but they are also wonderful and potentially divine and only on a freak moment they happened to do a mistake.Why can't we pardon? The reason is we think that our happiness is taken away by someone so we can not excuse. Once we are convinced our deep inner nature is bliss absolute and we can not be disturbed by outside we can only be compassionate to others.
