Lord Shrirama -The Best Leader-Discussing In Detail

As we saw earlier if anybody follows The Life of Lord Shrirama, he can succeed in spiritual and worldly life too.

Here we are going to discuss  Life of Lord Shrirama for successful worldly life and the  successful Management and leadership too, because we can not live without management. It is necessary for everybody students, professionals, homemakers, politicians.

Courage: Any leader should have this basic quality. He or she should be able to take firm decisions quickly and he must take all the responsibility of the decisions taken and of the consequences too.

About Shrirama it is written in the Ramayanas and it is very famous that

कुलिसहु चाही कठोर अति कोमल कुसुमहु चाही ||
Shriramcharitmanas (Lankakand Doha19g)
The meaning is that He is the harder than the Vajra (The hardest weopen of the Lord Indra) and He is the softest than a flower.

And the second thing is that "Ram never says two things". He never lies that is what is called as "Akvachani".

It is really very difficult to behave like this. But Lord Shrirama is naturally on these two principles always for the whole life. ( Here past tense is not used because Shriram is always with us. )

A leader should not be influenced by emotions while taking the toughest and important decisions whichever necessary for the country or the organization. But while being a leader or a manager, he should not be heartless and self centered fellow which is observed in many leaders in the past and no need to tell about the present political scenario.

ShriRama is very very emotional man. He was very emotional when He was not with Seetaji during the Vanavasa and also after banishing Seetaji. Also during the Vanavasa ( When He, Lxmanaji and Seetaji were living in the jungle for fourteen years.), He was very sad and emotional for His brother Bharata, all the mothers( including Kaikeyee who was responsible for their Vanavasa ) and  all the citizens of the Ayodhya. Here one more important point comes out. All the citizens used to love their Yuvaraj or Prince Shrirama and they could not live without Him. But Shrirama also cared for each and everybody of them. This should be the leader. The same thing is taught in modern management. But a question comes in mind how many people are really like this.  Just an example on twitter their are lots of famous people. When we saw there profiles, they have millions of followers but many of these big leaders or public figures  do not follow a single person. It is far away for them to know personally their followers.

Coming back to our main subject, Lord Shrirama! During the war with Ravana, Laxman was unconscious, Lord Shrirama was very very emotional.

But none of the incidents above affected any of His decisions during the Vanavasa or during the war with Ravana. When Ravana kidnapped Seetaji, Shrirama even did not know where She is ! He was very emotional. But He helped Sugreeva and gave back his kingdom of Vanaras from Vali. From the side of Sugreeva when Hanuman met Lord Shrirama, by his way of communication Shrirama immediately understood his personality, talent, his knowledge and capabilities. He told about all this to Laxmana. 

So any good or bad incident in Lord Shriram's life never affected His work, duties and responsibilities. During Vanavasa He knew that His father is no more. Still He completed all his responsibilities in the Vanavasa i.e. to save the sages- Rishis from the Rakshas by fighting with them, killing them. We see throughout the Ramayana Lord Shrirama is very calm and patient. He does every move firmly without any hesitation and much thinking. But whatever he do is the perfect. Especially, we see the best strategies He did during the wars. This is very much needed for India especially to learn and to find the solutions on biggest problems related to Defense, Internal security and foreign relations.

This subject is vast and as we go deeper in the Ramayana, we discover a completely new knowledge on this subject. 

We will extend this discussion further in next articles.

Happy Diwali

Happy Diwali to all the readers!

Diwali is the festival of lights as all of us know. But what is the meaning of the word Diwali? The original word is Deepawali. That is Deep-Aawali. 

Deep means Diya, a lamp. Diyadivaadeepam, or deepak is an oil lamp usually made from clay, with a cotton wick dipped in ghee or vegetable oils - (The Wikipedia meaning.) and Aawali means row. Deep-Aawali means row of Diyas or Deeps. So Diwali is the festival of lights. We lighten lots of Diyas in rows. This looks very very beautiful. Isn't it?

But why do we do this? have you ever thought? See, I like to talk a lot. I am writing this just because I want to share my thoughts with all of you and I would like to know  your thoughts also. We have so many beautiful different kinds of electric bulbs. Then why the oil lamps? Just because this is the festival of light or because this is our custom? What do you think? I will wait for your comments.

Deepawali means the festival of the light of the knowledge, joy and the peace. Festival is not a thing to be celebrated by a single person. As the Diyas are lit as one by another, this festival is to enlighten the Diya of the Gyan -the Highest or Supreme Knowledge, Peace and the Joy. So this is the most joyous and most beautiful festival of India.

If so, then while celebrating this auspicious festival Deepawali how can we keep some one's life in Darkness? How can we disturb the peace and joy of others? How can we pollute our 'Mother Earth'? How can we burn or blast the image of Laxmi Mata especially on the day of Laxmi Pujan?

Yes! Many of us do this. And we think that we enjoyed the Diwali. Is it the light of knowledge or the darkness of ignorance or the darkness of negligence about the reality? 

Boycott the fireworks and the crackers.

See the hazardous lives of children who are working in these fireworks' factories. May be we can not give them education. But at least we should not steal their lives, their innocent childhood. See their Dark faces. They show the Darkness of their lives to lighten up our Diwali.

Second thing is pollution. This is such a big contradiction.We create so much air and sound pollution on this festival, instead of lightening the Diya of joy and peace in the hearts of others, we extinguish the peace and joy of others. Have you ever seen the frightened faces of the innocent animals because of crackers? The effects on the senior citizens, the effect on the students due to this noise?

Third thing, some  Fire cracker have image of Laxmi Mata on them, which gets blasted. So I know nobody will like to do this and enjoy this thing.

On this Diwali, let our hearts be enlightened by the joy, knowledge and peace. Let our faces become that Diyas who spread this all over the earth. The joy for everybody. Share smiles and enjoy the Diwali.

Wish you the enlightened, Safe and A very very Happy Diwali and a prosperous new year.
