04 Mar Getting Ready to Welcome Shree Ram
As Shree Ram Navami fast approches, Radha Krishna Temple is getting ready to welcome Shree Ram! We started the month of March with one of the greatest epics of all times, Shree Ramayan. The Akhand Ramayan Parayan at the Radha Krishna Temple of Dallas was a grand success! For glimpses of the event, please visit our Akhand Ramayan Parayan album
Shree Ramayan , the stress reliever
In everyone’s life there comes situations, when one has to make tough decisions. Often we wonder whether what we are doing or did was the right thing. The best solution for this is to refer to our scriptures, especially the Ramayan. Ramayan is the treatment and medicine for those tough times that people face in their lives. No decision can be more than difficult than what Shree Ram had to face, whether to rule the earth as a king or whether to agree to His father’s words and go to the forest. Shree Ramayan has the ethical answer for every question and will help relieve one’s anxiety and make peace prevail during tough times. As devotees enagaged in the the Ramayan Parayan, there was a sense of awe at how Shree Ramayan is as applicable to life today as it was two yugas back!
How is Shree Ramayan Current in the todays world?
The Akhand Ramayan Parayan gave devotees a glimpse into how Shree Ram’s life is a textbook for everyone to follow in order to lead a happy, honest and a successful life. Out of His causeless mercy, Shree Ram took the human form and lead the life of a perfect citizen, a perfect son, a perfect brother, a perfect disciple, a perfect husband, a perfect friend, a perfect enemy and a perfect king who brought prosperity to everyone. Shree Ram was such a master at managing so many relationships, that even His enemies admired HIM. Shree Ramayan shows us the path to handle disappointments and do the right thing even in dire situations. HE showed us how to handle disappointments by happily agreeing to his father commands and starting to the forest. He happily gave away anything that He does not need in charity, when he started for the forest. He did whatever he could to protect those who needed help. He showed how to be a good friend helping Sugreeva get back his family and kingdom. He showed how to respect and value one’s spouse by taking an entire army and marching to retrive her from captivity. He showed us how to be a good brother by being readily willing to give up everything for His brother Bharata, if asked. He showed us how to be a good disciple to our Guru. He showed how to not hold a grudge against anyone and forgave Kaikeyi and was even ready to forgive Ravana. Shree Ramayan is the eternal story of maintaining and honoring various relationships in life by being truthful and ethical.
