Class 83: Why the Ramayan was written, why we worship Lord Ram (the God who embodies Dharma and gives fearlessness to all creatures) and how one's life becomes purified by bathing in the River Ganga
 (chapter 10 verses 31 to 33)
 
     
  • Why we worship Lord Ram (the God who embodies Dharma and gives fearlessness to all creatures). Why Shree Ramchandraji is called Dhanurdhaari Ram and holds a bow in His hands. 
  • A study of the Valmiki Ramayan about why Ram is a role model for using power for the right purposes. How the powerful should behave with the powerless: if one has power but does not abuse or misuse that power than that power suits that person.
  • A study of the origins of the Ramayan and why Valmiki wrote the Ramayan. 
  • The two qualities from which we can we see whether a person is divine: first he should first not fear others and second others should not fear him. Why an ideal devotee is seen like a friend to everyone.
  • A study of prayers to the River Ganga. How one's life becomes purified by bathing in the River Ganga.
  • The difference between vidhyaa (sciences) and kalaa (arts). 
  • A study of the two vidhyaa (sciences): raajavidyaa (the Royal wisdom) and adhyaatmavidyaa (the science of the Self).
  • The three types of vivaad (debates): vaad, jalpa and vitandaa.
  • A study of Sanskrit grammar and the four types of samaas (compounds).
  • The story of how Shree Ramchandraji gave Shiva the name Rāmeshwara.
  • A study of the different units of measuring time.
