Rama Avatar

Jaya and Vijaya the gate keepers of Lord Vishnu who got a boon to be born as Vishnu haters and die at his hand got objectified in Treta Yuga.

In Treta Yuga Lord Vishnu took birth as Rama a warrior prince of King Dashratha of Ayodhya.

Rama’s avatar is hailed as the ideal one for every human born on this earth. Rama’s life is a living example of how a human should be calm and carry out his duties in spite of facing obstacles and pains in life.

King Dashratha had 3 wives, Kausalya, Sumitra, and Kaikeyi. Kaikeyi was his most favorite one. During a war with asuras, Kaikeyi helped Dashratha in a crucial moment and saved his life for which he promised to grant her 2 wishes when ever she asks for.

After performing “Putrakameshti” yagna, Kausalya was blessed with Rama, Sumitra gave birth to twins Lakshmana and Shatrughna, Kaikeyi gave birth to Bharata.

All the prince were equally talented and completed their education together when King Dashratha was about to declare Rama as his successor, Kaikeyi due to her helper’s influence stopped Dashratha and reminded him of 2 wishes he promised to her.

As her first wish, she asked Dasaratha to send Rama to the jungle for 14 years and for the second wish make her son Bharata as the king of Ayodhya.

Dashratha was totally shattered as he could not bear the pain of being departed from his favorite son Rama but Rama very obediently left the palace along with his wife Sita Devi, Lakshmana followed Rama as he has taken a vow to follow his brother everywhere.

In the jungle, Sita Devi is kidnapped by Lanka Raja Ravana a fearsome demon who was a great bhakta of Lord Shiva.

Rama in search of Sita travels through jungles and meet Hanuman a devotee at par and with his help and vanar sena, learns that Ravana has kidnapped Sita.

Rama built a bridge made of stones on the sea and reached Lanka and waged a war against Ravana.

Rama killed both Kumbhakarna and Ravana the incarnation of Jaya and Vijaya and fulfilled their boon.

Lord Rama is celebrated as a great human who stood for values and righteousness.
