From reading Ramayana...
This is just some musing by me.
From reading Ramayana, one can get:
i) Dispassion - From the way Sri Rama renounces his kingdom, his own mother, kith and kin and embraces the forest life, at the behest of his father.
ii) Dedication to cause (Vairagya) - From the way Sri Rama dedicatedly lives the entire 14 yrs in forest...
iii) Bravery - From the way Sri Rama singlehandedly kills Kara and Dhooshana and later faces Ravana, though assisted by the simple Vanara Sena and Shri Hanuman and Lakshmana in his war with lankadhipathi.
iv) Mercy - From saying to Ravana, "Go today and come back tomorrow" and from the way he forgives Kakasura who assaulted Ma Sita.
v) Respect for women - From the way Sri Rama took only 1 wife and remained an 'ekapatni' vratha.
vi) Simplicity - From Sri Rama taking the simple fisherman Guha for his friend. Also for accepting the rakshasa Vibeeshana as his another brother.
What else can be learnt from Ramayana? Can you share your insights?...
