or Sreerama Chandra is the seventh incarnation of
Lord Rama is one of the popular
deities in Hindhuism. He is considered as the perfect
man in the world. He is called ‘Maryadha Purushothaman’ in
this sense. Our famous epic ‘Ramayana’ describes
the story of Sreerama from his birth. Devi Sita, the
avathar of Mahalakshmi, is the wife of Sreerama. Sita
is here represented as a concrete example of perfect
woman. Dasaradha, the king of Ayodhya is the father of
Rama. Dasaradha has three wives, Kausalya, kaikeyee and
Sumithra. Kausalya’s son is Rama, Bharatha, Lakshmana,
Sathrughna are the brothers of Rama.
For keeping the word of his father, Rama even decided
to avoid his kingdom and live in forest for 14 years.
His wife Sita and brother Lakshmana accompanied
him through the way. On the way devi Sita was kidnapped by Ravana, the king
of Lanka. Then Rama made an army with the help of Hanuman
and the monkey king Sugriva.
Then they killed Ravana and demolished his kingdom. Lanka then handed over
to Vibhishana, brother of Ravana. After 14 years Rama
came back to Ayodhya and became
the king. This full story is written in our epic ‘Ramayana’. Even
though he is incarnation of Lord Vishnu, he lived as a human, with all qualities
of an ideal man. He thus showed others, how to live like an ideal man.
