‘Celebrating Dusshera is celebrating the victory of GOOD over evil devil!’
‘So when would we control and kill those invisible multifaceted / multi-headed RAAVANA(s) inside of us?
And the AVATAAR is also inside us, let’s make that AVATAAR expressed and in work!
When will we have the real VIJAYA-DASHAMII – victory of GOOD over Evil Devil?’
VIJAYADASHAMII / DUSSHERA
So by this time, all the RAAM-LIILAA and RAABANA-PODI would have been big time over!
I recall, with the sound of pathakas, crackers, rockets, the big tall RAAVANA would be arrow-targeted perfectly purportedly from RAAM‘s bow – it was all fun, good-will gesture, the festivity!
Celebrating Dusshera is celebrating the victory of GOOD over evil devil!
But I feel how lucky even Lord RAAM and others were! The so-called devil Braahmana-Raakshas RAAVANA was ten-headed! So if one went off, the other could be targeted and so on until the last / main one was done with, and RAAVANA was killed! At least those heads were getting visible one by one or so!
But the (human) devils today have so many invisible, disguising and deceiving faces! They come in form of close relations, friends, or any body in the society or crowd! And enjoy their act of DEVILRY!
But the KALYUG (modern-age) devils (the majority humans) must realize even the so-called Raakshas / devil RAAVANA was doing some good to / for his kindgdom Lanka, his place, his people! It was Swarna Lanka! And at least he also had some principles, followed tapasyaa to appease the Gods and get Vardaan! He was wise, learned; even he believed in the KARMA, but couldn’t help his own nature! Every devil had its end though, so was his. And the downfall is written through a misdeed. The misdeed and contention of RAAVANA was with respect to devii SITAA! And there was Lord RAAM to return the KARMA and mark the DESTINY!
With so many far dangerous than RAAVANAs these days, how many so called AVATAARs we would need and depend on! These modern-days RAAVANAs don’t even spare their own places / land / people! This modern-RAAVANA‘s desires don’t end with a naarii (woman) or prosperity, wealth! It wants any thing and everything! The wealth is misunderstood and has a new name – MONEY though! Lust and desires have new forms apart from women, rather to say more than any married women! Wine / Alcohol is not the only Vilaasa (aristocracy); it’s more than that – drugs, and/or any addiction! It’s just never-ending! Knowledge and wisdom are scarce!
The reality is the devil is within us! Some control it (SANYAM / self-control) and many enjoy relishing and expressing it and making it in work! As it goes, it’s their very nature!
“So when would we control and kill those invisible multifaceted / multi-headed RAAVANA(s) inside of us?
And the AVATAAR is also inside us, let’s make that AVATAAR expressed and in work!”
When will we have the real VIJAYA-DASHAMII – victory of GOOD over Evil Devil?
A Food for Thought for each of us!
