What better day than Dussehra to know more about Lord Ram, who is one of the most revered and worshipped figures in Vaishnavism. He is widely regarded as ‘Maryada Purushottam’, also known as ‘Supreme Being’, or the ‘Man of Self-Righteousness’. As we celebrate Dussehra 2020, it is evident that Lord would be worshipped more, as one of the many reasons to celebrate this festival is that he killed Ravana on this day. As we are all set to worship Lord Ram, his principles, and his devotion to his parents, we at LatestLY, bring you some of the facts that about Lord Ramachandra on this auspicious occasion of Dussehra. Not Only Ravana, Effigies of Kumbhakarna and Meghananda Are Also Burnt During the Festival to Celebrate Victory of Good Over Evil. 

1. Lord Rama is said to be an ideal man of completeness, which is not limited to just being a normal human being, but also mentally and physically. Hence, he is widely regarded as ‘Maryada Purshottam’ in several holy texts.

2. Lord Ram was a devoted son, who strongly believed in ‘your wish is my command’ attitude, when it came to his parents’ wishes. To honour his father’s boon given to his step-mother Kaikeyi, Rama didn’t blink twice before sacrificing his coronation ceremony, leaving his family behind and accepting the 14-year exile.

3. We know Lord Rama as the 7th incarnation of Lord Vishnu. A look at Lord Vishnu’s incarnations before becoming Lord Rama – Matsya (Fish), Varaha (Boar), Kurma (Tortoise), Vamana (Dwarf), Narasimha (Man and Lion), and Parshurama (Sage).

5. Not many people know that Lord Rama was named by Maharishi Vashistha - the Guru of Raghuvanshi.

6. Another interesting fact about Lord Rama’s name is that it is made up of 2 spores (bijakshara) – Agni Beej and Amrit Beej – which provides strength, value, and an edge to the body, soul, and the mind.

7. It is a little-known fact that Lord Rama is a descendent of Raghu – one of the greatest emperors – and hence belongs to the popular Raghuvamsa dynasty. It is said that whoever when visited the emperor back then, never returned empty-handed.

8. In one of the chapters of Hindu epic Mahabharata, Lord Shiva once said that chanting the name of Lord Rama only thrice equals to chanting the names of thousands of gods and goddesses.

9. Well, it is a known fact that Lord Rama had three younger brothers. However, not many people know Lord Rama also had an elder sister, Shanta – who was a daughter of King Dashratha and Kaushalya.

10. It is said that Lord Rama ruled over his kingdom of Ayodhya for nearly 11,000 years, which was later popularly known as ‘Ram Rajya’.
