The seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu is known as Lord Rama. Lord Rama, the perfect avatar of the Supreme Protector Vishnu, has always been popular among the Hindu deities. Rama is the symbol of courtesy and virtue, a man of values and morals. Ramachandra is Maryada Purushottama, which means the perfect man. Lord Rama is considered to have taken birth on earth to destroy the evil forces of the age. Lord Rama, in the words of Swami Vivekananda, is “the embodiment of truth, of morality, the ideal son, the ideal husband, and above all, the ideal king”. Rama is widely accepted to be an actual historical figure – a “tribal hero of ancient India” – whose deeds form the great Hindu epic of Ramayana. Here are 16 good qualities of Lord Rama that everybody should learn:
He never spoke lies.
He never spoke foul language.
He will not expect the other person to speak first. He himself will smile and start the relationship.
He never played games that involved luck.
He never remembered what he gave to others.
He never thought about his greatness.
If someone did many misdeeds to him but only one good thing in life, he will only talk about that good thing.
If someone comes and criticize him, he listens about his disappointment and educates him softly to erase his misunderstanding.
Never in his lifetime did he think about any other woman other than Sita.
He indulged in pleasures without transcending social norms.
He never wasted the money he earned. But spent them in such a way that it is useful for everyone.
Though he was king, he was fully aware of the higher truth and did all his spiritual practices.
He was a well-wisher, not just for his people but each and every creature on earth.
He can be satisfied with 50% of what he usually eats. Even with 255 or even a handful of meal.
His appearance was always pleasing. i.e., he presented himself nicely in front others.
The principle of his life was to save anyone who surrendered at his feet. No matter how much harm that person had caused to him.
