    Out of all the characters mentioned in Hindu mythology, the character of Rama is one of the most famous ones. It would probably be a difficult task to find a Hindu who is not familiar with this hero or his exploits. He is the main protagonist of the Ramayana, still considered to be one of the greatest Indian epics of all times. Till date his story is taught in schools in India in the form of history and to instill morality in children. Standards set by him, though hard to attain, are ones that are

    One of the most striking relationships throughout the entire Rāmāyaṇa is that between India's epic hero Rāma and his half-brother Lakṣmaṇa. What is interesting about this affair is Lakṣmaṇa's pure fidelity toward his brother and all his goals. While Rāma is the king on leave throughout most of the Hindu epic, Lakṣmaṇa acts more or less as his royal servant and bodyguard of his most prized possession, that being Rāma's wife, Sītā. Interestingly enough, Lakṣmaṇa is very much an intelligent being

    In R.K. Narayan’s version of The Ramayana, Rama certainly appears to be an ideal king, one who fulfils his responsibilities, the sort of king and person that others should use as a template for their own actions. Rama uses dharma to represent the ideal qualities of kingship by adhering to the social conventions of familial roles and gender constructs, following ethical codes, and acting with morals and restraint. Through his actions, Rama sets an example for all as to how one should act in order

    Rama as an Empire Builder The story of the Ramayana reminds me much of the hard times that USA is in today. I see many similarities between Rama and the USA. Rama is a warrior against evil, and so the United States are claiming. He creates a strong army, which fights by his side until the end. He has allies that contains people such as Sugreeva whom he helped to retain his kingdom from his evil brother. So Sugreeva felt a strong feeling of loyalty towards Rama and it made him fight to the end

    religions’ gods Vishnu who is reincarnated as Prince Rama, son of Dasaratha. The reason that Rama is considered to be such a great religious, ethical and moral example is that he shows throughout the work that he is an individual of upstanding moral and ethical character. Rama’s role changes from one of unquestioning servility, to student, to pardoner, to enforcer, and finally to being a just ruler as he interacts with other key figures throughout the work. Rama shows unquestioning servility towards his parents;

    From a young age it was known that Rama was a special human being. This was apparent to Viswamithra who saw something special in Rama and eventually became his spiritual guide. In Ramayana, Rama’s quest to fulfill his Dharma is an ongoing process that is continually changing. Even though being ‘perfect’ is subjective based each persons views, in my eyes Rama captures all the traits that exemplify a perfect man. Many of Rama’s qualities and philosophies come from his initial quest with Viswamithra

    Page 564 I gave the realization of love to Rama. I also gave him a glimpse of the intriguing life experience. My delightful mantra about selfless love for the world sanctified the path of Rama's journey. “Hello Rama! I am exalted by the depth and sincerity of your touch. I am confessing you my sin with no pretension. Gautama and Indra are not the doers of my sin. I am myself responsible for that. With the shameless hunger of my body I contaminated it and my soul. I thought my body was lacking the
