Wishing you a very Happy #RamNavami.

Story behind Tulsidasji writing the Sri Ramcharitmanas in Awadhi :

On the command of Hanumanji, Tulsidasji went to Kashi and stayed at a Brahmin’s house. There, at Prahladghat, he began writing the Ramayana in Sanskrit. 1/8. Image
As per Mūla Gosāīm̐ Carita, Chaupais of Doha 37

In the daytime how much ever he would write, would get erased at night. This incident happened everyday and he didn’t understand what to do.
Then finally on the 8th day Lord Shiva came in his dream telling him to write the story in his own language.

Tulsidasji at once got up with the words of the dream echoing in his heart.

When Ravana took Mother Sita, she threw her jewellery on the ground so Lord Ram would find it.

When Lord Ram found it, He showed it to Lakshmana.

He showed the ring, the bracelet, the necklace but Lakshmana did not recognize any of it!!!
But when He showed Him the Nupur of the Feet, Lakshmana recognized it immediately.

Why???

Lakshmana said I have never looked at Mother Sita all my life. I have only looked at Her Lotus Feet……….and that is why He only recognized the Nupur.
Such was the Maryada! Such was the respect!

We must always remember that these examples were given to us so we can also follow them in our lives.

We must learn to live by the ideals that were shown to us by Gods who came in the form of humans to guide us.

For long I was contemplating what to write for #RamNavami because we are amidst a pandemic & no Sobha Yatra is taken out nor are temples open. But then it struck me, "Ram is a continuous process & a journey of life" Raja Ram is to be celebrated each day.
My thread on Raja Ram
Life of Raja Ram Chandra is a journey to attain nirvana, his life & he himself is a path & a journey to attain bliss by adhering to dharma. Ram is a varna of a complete man, Ram is a psyche of strong willed, Ram is the character of the strongest, Ram is synonymous to perfection
Ramayan will keep occurring, it's an episode of many Yuga's where each house will have a Kaushaliya mata,a devoted brother Lakshman,a dutiful wife Sita & pride of Ravan. Ramayan will flow till eternity like the Ganges & Sun. Ram will live till the last dusk of Mahakalyug.

Shri Rama Navami good wishes to all Hindus. Here's a glorious life size 500+ year old Vijayanagara era carving of Rama, Lakshmana, Hanuman, Sugreeva & Angada. Now how do we tell Rama & Lakshmana apart considering that they are so similar? See next tweet for more info. #RamNavami
Both Shri Rama & Lakshmana wear the Kiritamukuta(crown), hold Kodanda(bow) with their left arms & with their right arms gently embracing the figures next to them. Here's where the shilpi has left us a major clue. Observe the feet. Rama's feet r missing Padaraksha(footwear)

This is in line with what's written in the Ramayana, specifically what happens at Chitrakoota, when Bharatha pleads Rama to Ayodhya. When Rama doesn't relent, Bharatha requests Rama to give him his sandals, which he takes back to Ayodhya & places them below the throne (3)
