Dussehra and Spirituality!
Lessons to Learn:
1. Victory of Good over Evil
no matter how powerful is the evil, it will come to an end one day. in the end truth, justice and goodness prevails.
2. On this day Burn the Seeds of Passion and Ignorance inside you
This day the effigies of Ravana, Kumbhakarna and Meghnaad are burnt. This is symbolic that we also burn the qualities which spoil the Mind that is Lust, Anger, Greed, too much Pride, Jealousy, Selfishness, Injustice, Cruelty and Ego. Ravana’s Ten heads represent these ten qualities.
3. Truth and Dharma Always Win at the End
If we are on the side of Truth then we will always Win. At the most Justice might be delayed but you will always get it.
So have Patience like lord Rama and stick to the path of Dharma. Don’t cheat any one. Don’t Claim anything which is ethically not yours. Don’t take Bribe, Don’t Promote Corruption and Don’t be Greedy.
4. Don’t be Egoistic
Ravana became too much egoistic about his powers. he thought that no can defeat him. his super ego was the cause of his fall.
Ravana was one of the most wise and learnt person of his time. He is considered as one of the greatest devotee of Lord Shiva. He had mastered all the four vedas and shastras. he was a great veena player and master of astrology and ayurveda. but he didn’t leave his ego. If he had attained the mastery of his inner self, he would not have been defeated.
So keep your ego in check and listen to your Inner Voice.
These days Man is on the footsteps of Ravana. We are out to Conquer the whole world but we are not Mastering our Inner World.
Despite all these technological inventions, people are Still Miserable, Sad and Depressed. We are Claiming our Rights over the whole Earth but forget that Birds and Animals also have the equal Right to Live.
In our Greed for Power, the Natural Resources of the Earth are being Threatened.
5. Don’t ever try to Deceive or Let Down your own Relations.
If Kekayi had not asked for 14 year vanwas for the son Ram as a boon, Ram would not have gone for Exile.
If Vibhishan had not revealed the secret of his brother Ravan’s Demise, Ravana coyld not have been killed.
6. Don’t Underestimate the Power of Common Men
Ravana always thought that Human Beings and Monkeys are too Weak to do any Harm to him.
When he asked the Boon from Lord Brahma, for Imortality and Protection, he didn’t mention about the Humans.
So, as per the boon given to him by Lord Brahma, No Devta, Deity, Yaksha, Serpents, Heavenly spirits, Wild beasts etc could kill him.
That is why Lord Vishnu have to take the birth in Human form to kill Ravana.
Hence, Never be Over Confident. Stay Humble.
7. Follow the Path of Dharma
Vibhishana Chose to Follow the Path of Dharma instead of supporting his elder brother Ravana.
He was rewarded for this.
8. A Mother Always Protects her Children from Evil Deeds of others.
Always Respect her.
