*'Ra'* means *'light'*, *'Ma'* means *'within me'*, *'in my heart'*.
*Rama* means the *Light Within Me*..
*Rama* was born to *Dasharatha & Kousalya*.
*Dasharath* means *10 Chariots*..
The ten chariots symbolize the *5 sense organs*( *Gnanendriya*) & *5 organs of action*( *Karmendriya* ) ..
*Kousalya* means *Skill* ..
*The skillful rider of the 10 chariots can give birth to Ram*..
When the 10 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*..
*In reality Ramayana is an eternal phenomenon happening all the time*..🙏🏻
