Listen Online Now
For each of the Lord’s incarnation (Avtaar), there are various reasons (Hetu) and to fulfill each of the reason (Hetu) Lord takes incarnation (Avtaar) for the welfare of Lord’s devotees (Bhaktas). Baal Kand of Shri Ram Charit Manas states:
राम जनम के हेतु अनेका, परम बिचित्र एक ते एका ||
जनम एक दुई कही बखानी, सावधान सुनुसुमती भवानी ||
Shri Ram took avtar in human life and led his life within the constraints of human life, to give realistic inspiration to us human beings to be an ideal son, brother, husband, dharma-protector warrior, courageous, compassionate person and a righteous King.
Param-atma can be achieved through satsang. This is why, Maharishi Agastya narrated this katha to Bhagwan Shiv ji and Sati ji. As Swami ji says: “श्याम तुझे मिलने का सत्संग ही बहाना है”| By listening to the leela of Lord Vishnu, the mind becomes purified and get focused on the divine qualities of the Lord. To get the maximum benefit from Shri Ram katha satsang, we should listen to with shradda, submission and devotion.
Swami Ram Kamal Das Vedanti ji is from the pious city of Banaras or Varanasi. He has studied 285 versions of Ramayans, and therefore connects teachings from different passages beautifully and very logically. It is indeed a God-given opportunity to listen to divine character of Shri Ram and uplift oneself on the Bhakti platform.
