Triumph of Lord Rama


http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?NewsID=1056181&CatID=19

From time to time God incarnates on earth to impart His instructions and enact His pastimes. One incarnation is Lord Ramachandra, who appeared in India millions of years ago as the ideal king. His purpose was to teach us what a perfect government — a God-centred government — is. His moral, political and religious teachings and activities were meant to instruct humanity.

The Valmiki Ramayana, an ancient Vedic epic, describes the appearance and glorious activities of Sri Rama. King Dasarath lived in Ayodhya with his three queens, Kaushalya, Kaikeyi and Sumitra. Lord Rama was born to Kaushalya, Bharata to Kaikeyi, Laxmana and Shatrughna to Sumitra.

Just when Rama was to be coronated as the crown prince, Kaikeyi, due to the influence of wicked association, arranged for Dasaratha to banish Rama to the forest for 14 years. Sita, His loving wife, and His brother Laxmana also followed Him to the forest. In the Panchavati forest, Ravana, the evil king of Sri Lanka, became infatuated with the beauty of Sita. He kidnapped her, thus provoking the wrath of Lord Rama. Ravana had received a blessing from Brahma, the secondary creator of the universe, that he could not be killed by any god. The Lord, appearing in the role of a human being, defeated Ravana and saved the world.

The only flaw in Ravana's character was that he wanted to enjoy Laxmi (Sita) without her husband Narayana (Rama). Ravana is the manifestation of the propensity within us to lord it over the resources of material nature.

From the glorious story of the Ramayana, we can understand this point that we will not be benefited by Laxmi Devi in any way, shape, or form, without worshipping Narayana.

Vijayadasami or Dassehra is the day when we remember and glorify the Supreme personality of Godhead and His victory over all irreligious forces. Let us take advantage of this occasion to rededicate ourselves to the real purpose of human life to become loving servants of Sita and Rama.

Legacy and Importance
Ayodhya was one of the most ancient, largest and most magnificent of Indian cities. It is said to have covered an area of 250 km (96 square miles), and was the capital of the Hindu kingdom of Kosala (Kaushal), the court of the great king Dasaratha, the 56th monarch of the Solar line in descent from Raja Manu.1 The opening chapters of the Ramayana, a religious epic of the Classical Hindu period, recount the magnificence of the city, the glories of the monarch and the virtues, wealth and loyalty of his people. Dasaratha was the father of Rama Chandra, the Seventh Avatar of the Vishnu. Many Hindus believe the birthplace of Rama to be in Ayodhya at the place called Ram Janmabhoomi, the site of the demolished Babri Mosque. According to the Ramayana, Ayodhya was ruled by the House of Ikshvaku, who was the son of Manu.

Ayodhya is also the birth place of five Tirthankars, including the first Tirthankar of Jainism, Shri Rishabh Dev. He is known as the father of Jain religion. The city is also important in the history and heritage of Buddhism in India, with several Buddhist temples, monuments and centers of learning having been established here during the age of the Mauryan Empire and the Gupta Dynasty. Ayodhya reached its glorious peak as known to history during the reign of the Guptas over India.

Bhagwan Swaminarayan, founder of the Swaminarayan Sect of Hinduism lived here during his childhood years. It was from Ayodhya that Bhagwan Swaminarayan started his seven year journey across India as Neelkanth.

Tulsidas is said to have begun the writing of his famous Ramayana poem (Shri Rama Charit Manas) in Ayodhya in 1574. Several Tamil Alwar mention the city of Ayodhya. Ayodhya is also said to be the birthplace of Bhahubali, Brahmi, Sundari, King Dasaratha, Acharya Padaliptasurisvarji, King Harishchandra, Shri Rama, Achalbhrata, and the ninth Gandhara of Mahavir Swami.

The Atharva Veda called Ayodhya "a city built by gods and being as prosperous as paradise itself".

Ayodhya was the victim of pillage and sacking during the Ghaznavid raids and Ghorid invasions. Some Hindu temples were allegedly looted or destroyed. Some believe that the Babri Mosque was constructed on the remains of a temple, but this claim remains very controversial. With Muslim rulers established around the city under Mohammed of Ghor, it lost its strategic and economic importance to Lucknow and Kanpur.

Ayodhya today is a small, rustic city with ancient Hindu architecture predominating, and with some Mughal influence. Its population is mostly Hindu with a minority of Muslims, Jains and Buddhists. However, its history and heritage hold an unequivocal importance for over Hindus in India and across the world.

The Thai kingdom and city of Ayutthaya were named for Ayodhya, reflecting the common Southeast Asian practice of adopting place names from Hindu mythology.

Geography
Ayodhya is located at 26.8 N 82.2 E[1]. It has an average elevation of 93 metres (305 feet).

Demographics
As of 2001 India censusGRIndia, Ayodhya had a population of 49,593. Males constitute 59% of the population and females 41%. Ayodhya has an average literacy rate of 65%, higher than the national average of 59.5%; with 66% of the males and 34% of females literate. 12% of the population is under 6 years of age.
