Shri Raama — Prajaanaancha-hiteratah

(continuation of this series of stories)

This series of stories on Shri Raama Chandra Murty try to showcase the 16 important sadgunas or the Shodasha-kalas in Shri Raama.

Prajaanaancha-hiteratah — Shri Raama Yuvaraajyaabhishekam

“My sankalpam is to make Shri Raama as the Yuvaraja. Please tell me your opinion” asked Dasharatha maharaaja to all the members in his Sabha. The Sabha was echoing with people saying “uttamam bahu uttamam”. They said “We are all eager to see the divya Pattaabhishekam of Shri Raama, who is Ajaanubaahu, Mahaveera, Mahaabalashaali”.

Dasharatha then says “are you all praising my Son to impress me or are you telling Satyam?”. The praja replied “Shri Raama is the greatest of all Ikshvaakuvamsha raajas. He always:

  • is a Satpurusha, follows Satya-Dharmas.
  • is Chandra in making the praja have Aanandam.
  • is Bhudevi in Kshamaadi gunas.
  • is Bruhaspati in Buddhi.
  • is Devendra in Paraakramam.
  • is a Dharmagnya, Satyasandha, ….. Has Uttamashiilam, anasuuya, Satyavaadi”.
  • has Indriya-nigraham.
  • does upaasana of Panditas, Vruddha Brahmanas. Because of this only He increased His Kiirti, Ashas, Tejas.
  • knows all shastra-astras (see this story).
  • knows all shaastras. He is a Vidyaavan.
  • there is no one who can surpass Him in Sangeetha Shastram. He knows the 64 Kalaas in Bharata Saampradaayam.
  • gives respect to elders.
  • is Mahaavishnu in Veerya, Shouryaadi Paraakramas.
  • is a sthira-chitta, has sthira-alochanas.
  • can make Dharmam, Lakshmi never leave his praja.
  • does duhkha-nivaaranam of duhkhitas.
  • has Mrudusvabhaavam.
  • has Krutagnyata.
  • is a sarvamangala-pradaata
  • speaks praanahita vaakyas to everyone.
  • takes Lakshmana and returns only after saving the country from enemies, by doing dharma-yuddhas.
  • after Yuddham, comes to each person and asks his yoga-kshemas; asks them kushala-prashnas.
  • enquires if all the bhrutyas are doing the seva only by their own will and doing it whole-heartedly.
  • experiences duhkham if sajjanas get difficulties.
  • If somebody achieves something, he gets aanandam similar to how a father feels happy seeing the growth of his child.
  • is a Dharma-parirakshaka and hence does hitam to all His praja.
  • does hitam to all aashritas (see this for knowing His sharanagati Dharmam).
  • never speaks parusha-vakyas.
  • knows everything about how to do Raajya-paalana.
  • is the only person who can rule the Tribhuvanas.
  • will definitely punish people who deserve punishment according Danda-neeti shastram.
  • never punishes avadhyas.
  • The person with whom Shri Raama is impressed, will get sakalaishvaryas including Moksha-Lakshmi.

Discussion on the story:

In this story the praja themselves tell how much praja-hitam Shri Raama always does. This was the opinion of all the praja in the Raashtram, Raajadhaani, people far off, near by, everyone.

Hitam is like an Aushadham. An Aushadham, though it tastes bitter, does the chikitsa of the rogi. Similarly, Shri Raama used to be like a father to the Sajjanas, Shikshaka to the Durjanas. However usually Durjanas who get punished will do duushanam, even though the King did hitam. But in case of Shri Raama, even the durjanas change and sing songs of His greatness. The example is of Maariicha.

Jayam for Shri Raama Raajyam.

Sadgunam to be learnt: doing Prajaahitam always.
