Ram and Valmike’s Ramayana

Truth cometh to the light

Britannica Concise Encyclopedia: Ramayana:

Indian epic poem, composed in Sanskrit c. 300 BCE, is a great epic poem of India. It consist 24,000 couplets in seven books. It describes the royal birth of Ram and the loss of his throne. He banished to the forest with his wife, Sita and his half brother, Laksmana. They spent 14 years in exile meanwhile a demon king carried off Sita. Ram enters into an alliance with Sugriva, a king of the monkeys, and Hanuman the monkey general. They helped him to get her back. Ram regains his kingdom, but Sita is banished when her chastity was questioned. The earth swallowed her after proving her innocence. The epic poem Ramayana was written by Maha Rishi Valmike.

Outward look of the concise description gives a very simple message like a story of an ordinary kingdom and exploitation of woman, but look deeply into the hidden meaning, you will find it altogether different from its outward look. It is a parable conveying different message. Jesus, while on earth, He spoke in similar parables. His disciples asked Him why does He do so? Read below: -

Mathew 3:10. And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11. He answered and said unto them, because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. 13. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.14. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, by hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

Ramayana has a deep meaning, but in absence of spiritual understanding and wisdom, Brahmins have interpreted it differently. They have reduced Ram to the level of an ordinary king that ruled his state for a certain period and vanished. Divine part of his being, they overshadowed to satisfy their personal interests.  They presented the incidence of “Ravna’s taking away Sita treacherously”, without understanding, its spiritual meaning. I appreciate the Devotees (Bhagats) who took a lead and resultantly Sikhism accepted that Ram was not earthly king but the Creator. Sikhism too, like Christianity praised the Creator as He is only worthy of worship. I invite the readers to join the deep investigation into Ramayana to understand the mystery of Heavenly Kingdom that God reveled to Maha Rishi Valmike. 

His Genealogy: -The first question comes to the mind about genealogy of Ram. Ramayana does not speak anything about Ram’s ancestry except that he was son of Dash Ratha of Ragua lineage. Who was Dash Ratha’s father? Ramayana does not answer. It is a strange situation that Maha Rishi Valmike, who wrote a big poetic epic, did not know the name of Dash Ratha’s father. Did Dash Ratha not know the name of his father that he could tell Valmike? It is not acceptable. It is difficult to find a person who does not know the name of his father. I, an ordinary person know the name of my father, grandfather and great grandfather. My brethren, you know the names of your four or five ancestors or even more but why Ramayana is silent on the family lineage of prominent Hindu deity worshipped as god for centuries? Dashratha had a great kingdom and behind his Royal Seat, there could have been a wooden board hung on the wall “Board of Incumbency”, as in modern offices there are boards displaying the names of incumbents. Valmike could have taken a glance upon it to include Ram’s ancestry. He could have asked Ram, Sita or other family members about the name of their grand father, but why he ignored this important aspect?

Genealogy of Sita and Janak: - Similarly in case of Sita, and her Father ‘Janak’ (though not natural father) have no family history. Perhaps Maha Rishi Valmike did not visit his royal chamber too to note down the name of his father.

Genealogy of other Hindu deities: - It is not only Ram but all Hindu deities are missing this important information. This major deficiency denies their physical existence on earth and places them with mythological status. The matter is subjected to debate and anyone, having better information is invited to update my little knowledge. Presently I am constrained to accept that Ram is mythological character that never physically existed on this planet.

Genealogy of Jesus: - See in case of Jesus, His total family lineage, right from God is available in the scriptures. Jesus was 42nd in the family lineage from God the Creator. He lived on earth and people enjoyed His association. His name is available on the record of Roman Kingdom. Read the description of the Lord Jesus as below.

This is descriptive word picture of the Lord written while He was still on earth. It is available on the civil record of Romans as they were in power in the Holy land at that time so authentic as a matter of history.

“There lives at the time in Judea, Jesus Christ whom the barbarian esteem as a prophet but His followers love and adore Him as the offspring of the Immortal God. He calls the dead from their graves and heals all sorts of diseases with a word or touch. He is a tall man and well shaped of an amiable and reverend aspect. His hair of a color that can hardly be matched falling into graceful curl waiving about and very agreeably crouching upon His shoulders parted on the crown of the head, running as a stream to the front after the manner of the Nasserites. His forehead high, large and imposing. His cheeks a lovely read, nose and mouth formed with exquisite symmetry. His beard thick and of a color suitable to the hair and parting in the middle like a fork. His eyes bright blue clear and serene, look innocent and dignified, manly and mature. His hands and arms, most delectable to behold.

He rebukes with majesty, counsels with mildness. His whole address whether in word or deed being eloquent and grave. No man has seen Him laugh yet His manners are exceedingly pleasant but He has wept frequently in the presence of men.

He is temperate modest and wise- a man for His extraordinary beauty and divine perfection surpassing the children of men in every sense.” 

The document (letter) is supposed to have been written to the Roman Senate by Publius Lentunus the then President in Judea in AD 33. It was published in the Meadville Pennsylvania Republican in year 1873.

Do we have the description of any Hindu deity like this?

It is not only Jesus that we have descriptive details but Bible contains the details of all prior forty-one ancestors with their family details.

Maha Rishi Valmike lived his life on this earth as we have some details available even today. He was a chosen Seer of the Most High. ‘God the Creator’ shared with him this important vision of His Heavenly Kingdom.

Story of Ram as contained in Ramayana needs decoding to understand the truth. It is merely a parable of Bible. My brethren, do not take it only my speculation but when you read the complete details of the article you will be left with hardly any doubt in this thought.

His lineage: - Ram was son of Dash Ratha (Ten Chariots). Ten Chariots that could generate a prominent Hindu Deity might have been very powerful and mighty chariots, serving the God or His people, contributing forcefully in righteous living on earth that they are remembered as father of great deity. Ram is worshipped as god by followers of a prominent religion of the world. It is not only Hinduism that worships him but other religions falling within its fold are influenced and worship Ram as god. This leads me to accept that the Ten Chariots are none other than “Ten Commandments”.

It is a Vision: - “Ramayana” the story of Ram is a vision, given to Seer named Maha Rishi Valmike, by God Himself. It is about the mystery of His Kingdom. Ten Commandments came from the God, the Lord, the Creator and no one else. Ten commandments are “Ten Chariots”, the law of the kingdom of Most High given to the world to follow them strictly. These are not the suggestions but Commandments of the ‘Most Holy Father’ to be strictly followed by His children. God used Moses to carry these Ten Commandments, written on two stone tablets by God Himself that His people must follow them. These Ten Commandments are the key of the manual given by God for living the life of righteousness. Bible is the manual for the man to live in this world as He wished. See the Ten Commandments as under: -

Exodus 20 (Ten Commandments)

(1) 1. And God spake all these words, saying, 2.  I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3.  Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

(2) 4. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5.  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God AM a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6.  And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

(3) 7.  Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

(4).  8.  Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9.  Six days shalt thou labor, and        do all thy work:  10.  But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

(5). 12.  Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

(6).  13.  Thou shalt not kill.

(7).  14.  Thou shalt not commit adultery.

(8).  15.  Thou shalt not steal.

(9).  16.Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

(10) .17.Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house; thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s. 

Enforcement of the Commandments 

I the Lord thy God AM a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. God commanded the provision of penalties for violation and rewards for following them. (Read the book of Deuteronomy) 

Rhagau: - After discussing Dash Ratha, let me discuss that Ram belonged to Rhagau, ethnic origin. What is Rhagau, ethnic origin?

See “Strong Greek Dictionary”, we find the meaning of Rhagau as: -

Text:  Of Hebrew origin [7466]; Ragau (i.e. Reu), a Patriarch: --Ragau.

Patriarch is a person Revered as Father or Founder. Again we reach the same origin that It is the Lord the God who created everything, He is called  ‘Ragau’.

How Ram was born? The good king Dash Ratha of Ayodhaya, who had ruled over his kingdom of Kosala for a long time, was anxious about his successor, for he had no son to take over the kingdom after him. Taking advice of his ministers and priests, Dash Ratha organized “Putrakameshti Yagna”, a ceremony of sacrifice for progeny. Vishnu decided to be born as the eldest to Dash Ratha and caused a divine being to emerge from the sacrificial fire. The divine being gave Dash Ratha a golden vessel filled with nectar and asked him to give it to his queens. Dash Ratha divided it amongst his three queens, Kausalya, Sumitra and Kaikeyi. In due course they became pregnant and gave birth to four sons: Queen Kausalya gave birth to the eldest son, Ram. Bharat was born to Queen Kaikeyi, and twins, Lakshman and Shatrughna, were born to Queen Sumitra.

It shows that Ram was conceived through Holy Spirit of God to a virgin. Hindus do accept that Dash Ratha was impotent so unable for sexual union. Kausalya was still virgin at the time of birth.

Ayodhaya: - He was the king of Ayodhaya. What is Ayodhaya? It is a place without war, means a place of peace. Using the Hebrew language being most original, it is Shalom or Jerusalem.

Who is Sita? Sita is the daughter of Janak. Janak means ‘the Creator’ and He created Sita out of dust. He was the king of ‘Mithila’ means legendary. Mithila pertains to fairy tails only having no physical existence. Sita was not born to any woman but came up from the dust. She too does not have any family lineage. Her birth resembles to Eve’s birth, which God created from the body of Adam. See, how God created Eve? Read the book of Geneses.

Gen 2:21.  And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof. 22.  And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.  23.  And Adam said, this is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Marriage of Ram and Sita: - Vishwamitra, chanced to pass near the kingdom of Mithila and heard that its king, Janak, had offered his peerless daughter, Sita, in marriage to the man who could bend the mighty bow of god Shiva which had been kept at Janaka's court. Ram at once was determined to accomplish the feat, which had been tried in vain by so many suitors. When he presented himself at court, Janak was at once won over by his youth and beauty. Ram, without any apparent effort, bent it until it broke and Janak gladly gave him his beautiful daughter. After the splendid wedding ceremonies were over, the happy pair traveled back to Ayodhaya.

Shiva and what is his mighty bow: - Shiva is the ‘god of death’ as accepted by Hindu mythology. The mighty bow of Shiva is ‘death’. Ram broke the sting of death and married Sita. In reality Jesus broke the sting of Satan by dieing on the cross and His resurrection on third day. Sita the bride of the Lord is the church.

Read book of 1 Corinthian: - 15:54.  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  55. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?  56.  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57.  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Book of Revelation: - Revelation 21: 1.  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  2.  And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3.  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Here church does not mean the building but the body of Christ Jesus, the believers and His saved people from the sting of death. He granted them eternal life to be with Him forever in New Jerusalem. It is the sting of death that is broken to liberate the mankind from Satan’s yoke.

Vishvamitter (their teacher) means friend of the world. Lord, the Creator loved the creation so much that He sacrificed His own begotten Son to die on the cross to save the creation from ultimate perish. Friend of the world is God the creator Himself.

Why Dash Ratha died? As earlier explained, Dash Ratha i.e. Ten Chariot are the  “Ten Commandments”, the law given by the Lord through Moses. It was the covenant of the Lord with mankind. But lately law of God became the strength of sin and sin leaded the mankind to death. To save the world, a new covenant was the need.

Read book of Galatians 3:15.  Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.  16.  Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.  17.  And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. 18. For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. 19. Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. 20. Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. 21. Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.  22. But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.  23.  But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith, which should afterwards be revealed. 24. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.  25. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.  26. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.  27.  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.  28. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Now we have the New Covenant of Faith with the Lord our Savior. We are His children by faith not by promise. So the Covenant of promise has been replaced with the Covenant of Faith. 

What is the New Covenant: - Ramayana says that Ram had two sons named Love and Kush. In fact these two sons are the two commandments of the New Covenant. Read the New Covenant as: -

Mathew 22: 37. Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38.  This is the first and great commandment. 39. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. 40. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

God the Creator had given Ten Commandments to Moses. First four commanded us on our bond with the Creator, ‘God the Lord’ and other six commanded us on our relationship with our families and with the society. Through these two Commandments, the Law of the Lord automatically binds us as Jesus has written the Commandment on our hearts through His mercy and love. So the new covenant has replaced old one and Dashratha passed away.

Laksmana and Bharat are half brothers of Ram in this mythology representing James and John half brothers of Jesus.

Fourteen years exile to Ram. It represents forty days fasting of Jesus.

Read Book of Mathew: - 4: 1. Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward a hungered. 3. And when the tempter came to him, he said if thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4. But he answered and said, it is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5. Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6. And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7. Jesus said unto him, it is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them. 9. And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.10. Then saith Jesus unto him, get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

We do not find Jesus tempted by Satan, but Ram like Adam gets tempted on Sita’s persuasion. The incidence is parallel to temptation of Eve when Satan tempted her and Adam too fell in the temptation on her persuasion. It shows fall of the creation in the satanic hands. It is the fall of mankind to sinfulness. Adam brought death to the mankind but Jesus restored them to eternal life through His sacrifice on the cross, towards ransom for our sins. Next important character in the mythology is Ravna.

Ravna: - Ravna is Devilish King like Nimrod, the first king of first civilization on earth. He is said to have ten heads and ten crowns on them. Read the book of Revelation: -

Revelation 13: 1. And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 

See the relationship between both the incidences. Beast with ten horns and ten crowns came from the sea. Ravna was the king of Sri Lanka (in the sea) as it is an island below India. He had ten heads and ten crowns, speaking blasphemy. Satan had given his power and seat to Ravna. He was defeated and killed by Ram as Jesus defeated Satan, dieing on the cross and His resurrection on third day, breaking the sting of death forever. 

Read: - 1 Corinthian 15:55.  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

Test of Chastity of Sita on fire. 

In fact it is not the test of chastity of Sita on fire but sanctification of Church with the Holy Spirit of God. It is an event to take place on the ‘Day of Judgment’ by the Lord.

Read book is Isaiah: - 6:5.  Then said I, Woe is me! For I am undone because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. 6. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7. And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 

Read Mathew 3:11.  I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

Similarly this was for sanctification of Sita i.e. woman i.e. church of the Lord in a similar way as Isaiah was sanctified. It is a baptism by Holy Spirit as fire signifies Holy Spirit.

Thousand years confinement for Ravna and kingdom for Ram. Ramayana proclaims that Ravna has to be bound in chains and rule of Ram on earth for one thousand years. Bible says Satan to be imprisoned for one thousand years and Jesus will have His Kingdom for thousand years. This incidence is expressed in Holy Word of God the same way. It is in the book of revelation to John. Read in the book of Revelation as below.

Revelation 20 1:1.  And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3. And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. 4. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. 7. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8. And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

Here it is the end of the mythological story. This entire story is neither real nor a myth but a revelation of the plan of God to the Seer of the Lord, Maha Rishi Valmike.

No religion named Hindu existed on earth in ancient times Valmike was not Hindu, as no religion named Hindu existed in ancient times. No Hindu scripture speaks this word ‘Hindu’. Hindu is an alien word for Indian land that came from Arab countries on coming of Islam into India. Islam too used this word as an abuse in a derogatory way to identify the non-Muslims calling them Hindus. The root of ‘Hindu’ word lies in Persian language, which gives the meaning Kafir, Black and thief.

Structure of Valmiki Ramayan Valmike’s Ramayana is the oldest version and the basic scripture for all other versions of Ramayana that exist in different cultures. The text has survived in various complete and partial forms. Valmike’s Ramayana has come down to us in two regional versions i.e. one from North India and the other from South India. Both versions contain seven chapters such as: -

1.     Bala Kand. 2. Ayodhya Kand. 3. Aranya Kand. 4. Kishkindya Kand. 5. Sunder Kand. 6. Yuddh Kand. 7. Uttar Kand.

There are speculations on whether the first and the last chapters (Bala Kand and Uttar Kand) of Valmiki's Ramayana were written by the original author or added at later stage. It is because of many differences in style and contradictions in contents of these two chapters and the rest of the book.

Major discrepancy brought by these two chapters is the ‘induction of caste system in the text’. In first chapter, Ram is shown as born in Kshatriya Caste and in the last chapter Ram kills ‘Shambhuka’ an untouchable saint for worshipping God for Caste System does not permit untouchables to worship God. It seems that Brahmins add these two chapters at later stage to satisfy their vested interests. Read following arguments in its favor.

(1) This cannot be revelation by God to Valmike as it is against God’s basic nature. Basic nature of God is Love, Mercy and Forgiveness not hate and discriminations.

Read book (1 John 4:8,9,16.)  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 16.  And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

(2) God does not grade His people in castes and creeds so Ram’s birth in Kshatriya caste is not from God. Caste System is the invention of Brahmins for purpose of exploitation of the poor. It is satanic tool and a ‘Crime against Divinity’. It is an attempt to design God to fit to misdeeds of man on earth. It is certainly not the revelation of His Kingdom.

(3) Killing is against the commandments of the God. Read sixth commandment: - Thou shalt not kill. How God could have commanded Ram to kill Shambhuka, that too for worshipping Him?

(4) It is difficult to understand, why Valmike should have glorified Ram for killing his own untouchable brother? Hindus label Valmike himself as ‘untouchable’.

(5) God did not give any law that to worship Him by certain caste is a sinful act and its violation invites death penalty.

(6) The act of killing of Shambhuka by Ram speaks that Ram was the messenger of Satan not of God the Lord.

Hinduism is basically confined within the boundaries of Caste System and Gandhi himself confirmed it through his statement that Caste System is the soul of Hinduism (Read annihilation of castes by Ambedker). In absence of Caste System, Hinduism will demolish at its own. The total structure is standing on Caste System.

How ungrateful they are? 

(1) Hindus did not have the courtesy to honor a great prophet of God who gave them their god ‘Ram’ but they disgraced him calling him  ‘UNTOUCHABLE’. They replaced the original Ram with a new version of Ram to justify the theory of Caste System. They used Ram as an instrument to confirm the Caste System that it was designed by God Himself using Ram to kill ‘Shambhuka’ the untouchable saint for violating the satanic law of Manu.

(2) Degrading Valmike to the level of being untouchable could not satisfy them, but they further damaged him framing a new story that he used to be a Dacoit in his early life. They never thought that Valmike did not have any family of his own and there used to be no scarcity of any thing during that age. God had blessed His gifts in abundance to every one to live a rich life. Why he should have committed such heinous crime? Natural prudence vanished from their mind for selfishness as it served their interests to strengthen Caste System.

(3) Hindus invented false gods, worshipped them and also disgraced them calling them sex-maniacs, killers or by some other moral turpitude. They did not spare Brahma, Indra, Shiva, Surya or even goddesses they worship. They labeled derogatory charges upon them to justify their own miss-deeds. They fabricated the story that Ram could not protect his own wife but never tried to understand the mystery. They made him killer to justify the exploitation of lower castes.

(4) Even in modern age, Hindu bureaucracy in India adopts the same tactics to demoralize honest officers belonging to lower community. They assassinate their character and kill their service career. It is unfortunate for India that such satanic people govern the country.

What is war between Ram and Ravna?

The war between Ram and Ravana is not the war fought with earthly weapons but a war between the Lord and Satan where sword, bows and even most modern weapons are earthly toys. These toys are too weak to be used against Him. God the Lord our Savior, Lord Jesus Christ is the Commander in Chief of army of His believers, fighting against Satan and its false prophets. Lord’s weapon is Word of His mouth. He is coming soon with two-edged sword in His mouth.

Read book of Revelation 2:16. Repent or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

What does the sword of mouth means? For sword, it needs hand not mouth to hold and use it. Understand it is the weapon coming from His mouth as His command. As in the beginning, He commanded: -

Gen Genesis 1:1.  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

  And God said, let there be light: and there was light.

 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. 6. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters, which were under the firmament from the waters, which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. 9. And God said, Let the waters under the Heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13. And the evening and the morning were the third day. 14. And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15. And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18. And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.19. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 20. And God said; Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22. And God blessed them, saying, be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. 24. And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 26. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him male and female created he them.

God creates everything by command of His mouth and everything will parish on command of His mouth the same way. He may speak ‘perish’ and all will perish in a twinkle of an eye. Two edged sword of His mouth means He can command you to perish or to get saved. Where does Satan stand before Him? Worship the true God, the Savior, Lord Jesus Christ repenting for your sins and pray for His mercy. 

As God used Valmike to reveal Ramayana, He used Vyas to reveal Mahabharta too. See there are similar episodes and similar scenes of wars in both the poetic epics. Both were revealed through untouchable prophets of God.

Shaking the Oceans Another episode, where Satan expressed the separation of poison and nectar from seawater. Snake (Satan) used as rope by angels of God and angels of Satan. ‘Sumeru hill’ used as a tool for shaking seawater. In fact, it is the revelation of war in the Heaven for throwing out Satan and his angels on earth. Satan changed the story for his own interests, as he is a liar from the beginning. The story further says that Hindu god of death ‘Shiva’ consumed the poison and kept it in his throat. It is surely for stinging the human race to death. It is Satan that brought death through sin. This mystery too God revealed to ‘Vyas’ an untouchable fisherman.

What Satan can give you?

Read: - Romans 6:23. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Shiva can give you death not life. He has poison in his sting. He carries snakes (the old serpent i.e. Satan) on his entire body. He consumes poisonous things to sharpen his sting. He did not spare his dirty son and wife. He reduced his wife to pieces in madness and scattered her limbs through out the Indian land. Brahmins made temples of goddesses on her scattered limbs to earn their livelihood, by misguiding the Indians living in the age of darkness. What happen when blind leads the blind? Both will fall into ditch. Brahmin is spiritually blind leading every one to spiritual blindness to fall in the ditch.

Read book of Mathew 15:14. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. 

Discard worshipping Satan but seek the gift of God, the eternal life, worship the true God, the Lord the Savior, Lord Jesus Christ.

Persecution of Christians: - Satanic forces are persecuting Christians all over the world. India is perhaps most prominent war field now. Do you think Satan is winning? No, it is not winning but loosing the war, as this earth and his kingdom has very short life span. Satan is fighting to keep its hold on its vanishing kingdom on earth. It is the end time for Satan and its false prophets. Fire of hell is their destined. They will not die bodily only but their souls will also burn in the fire of hell.

Read book of Revelation 19:20.  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21. And the remnant was slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Only the people who have confessed their sins and prayed for forgiveness to the Lord, Lord listened their prayers will be saved. It is the end time to accept Him as Savior to get the gift of eternal life. For Satan the life means the earthly life only but for the followers of the Lord, it is a temporary abode for a short while and we are the citizens of Heaven not of earth. We are His ambassadors on earth. He blessed us eternal life to live with Him in Heaven. For us, to die for His cause is gain and reward is eternal life.

Philippians 1:21.  For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.   

God loves the lost: - For revelation of mysteries of His Kingdom He uses the discarded people of the world. God used Valmike an out caste, Vyas a fisherman to reveal His wisdom. He used Hanuman and Sugriva forest tribal and other ignoble for the service of His Kingdom. He used untouchable saints such as Kabir, Ravidas, Namdev, Tarlochan, Sadhna, Saina Dhanna and others to condemn ‘Brahminical Social Order’ and to promote a new caste-less society in India. They are the roots of Sikhism. They all came up from condemned section of Indian society. They worshipped only ‘God the Creator’ and rejected false gods.

Our Savior Lord ‘Jesus Christ’ while physically on earth used commoners like fishermen and tax collectors as His Apostles. God chooses the ignoble to make the wise ashamed of. 

Read Luke 10:21. In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

Dr Bhim Rao Ambedker (an untouchable) drafted a beautiful constitution for the country. But satanic forces governing the country have miss-used it. Constitution of India gives protection to the untouchables but the Government of India protects untouchability. Constitution grants freedom to follow any religion but Government amends it barring conversion to another religions.

What is the merit of Brahmins except miss interpreting the Word of God and leading poor Indian to spiritual blindness. God revealed all Hindu scriptures to untouchable seer but they have given twist to them to justify their own misdeeds. Day of judgment is at hand and all these false prophets will be confined to the fire of hell.

Read the book of John 8:44.  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

Read Revelation 20:9,10.  And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 10. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever. 

Let us understand the mystery of Ram, who he is?

Who is RAM?

See Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary: -

Ram is the combination of three alphabets, resh+aleph+mem. Resh stands for the ‘king or supreme’, aleph for ‘from the beginning’ and mem for ‘water’.

Ram is “Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters in the beginning.”

Read the Holy Word of God: -
Genesis 1:1. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Ram is the word of God that came in the beginning as
He commanded, let there be light and light was there.

Reading further Gospel of John: -
John 1:1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2. The same was in the beginning with God. 3.All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, this was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16. And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.

Another meaning of ra’am is as below

“Strong Greek Dictionary”

Strong's Number: 7213, Transliterated: ra'am, Phonetic: raw-am'

Text:  a primitive root; to rise: --be lifted up.

We reach the same result as the meaning of word ra’am is ‘Be Lifted Up’

Who is lifted up?

It is only Jesus who resurrected (lifted up from) the dead and subsequently lifted up to Heaven after forty days of His ministry on earth.

Why to discuss Hebrews Dictionary?

To understand the mystery of God, we have to understand the original language. Concept of Ram is as original as Creation. He is beginning and the ending.

Read book of Revelation 1:8.  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

In fact Babylonia is the first civilization on the earth. All nations of the world have come up after the project of Tower of Babel. Nimrod the first king (Devilish) on the earth leaded people to construct the Tower of Babel revengefully (against God as God had finished the mankind from earth except eight members of the family of Noah). God did so for inequities of man on earth. Man had become sinful and immoral but only Noah was the righteous person so his family got saved.  God used Noah to revert the people back to Him from idol worship and discard all inequities and sinful living. Noah preached the message of God for one hundred twenty years like believers are preaching the Word of God now. Men did not turn to God and God subjected them to judgment and punished them. All perished at the command of God.

Now again mankind is to be subjected to judgment, not by water but by rain of fire. The preachers of the Word of God are working to save the mankind from final devastation but children of Satan are persecuting them. Satan tries to hold its reign on earth, whereas he knows that he will loose it. Satan will be in chains for one thousand years while Jesus will have His Kingdom for one thousand years. Ultimately Satan and his false prophets with followers will be burnt in the fire of hell.

Entire human race has its origin in Babylonia and God scattered them to the ends of the earth. So all countries of the world have come to existence afterward.

Read the book of Geneses. How God scattered mankind from Babylonia (Modern Iraq).

Genesis 11: 1-9.  And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2.  And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3.  And they said to one another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.
4. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5.  And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men built. 6.  And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7.  Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8.  So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9.  Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

On the basis of the facts enumerated above, we find that: -   

Ramayana is the story of Lord Jesus Christ


JAISA TU TAISA TUHI
KYA UPMA DEEJE

Father, Thou are only
Thyself, the Supreme
Above appraisal.

Saint Ravidas

Know: That God loves His creation. He loves you too.
Feel: He loves you unconditionally.
Do: Seek the intimacy of His relationship with you.


PRAYER

Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory, for ever.
Amen.
