A gist of epic Ramayana - Part XVI

Updated on December 22, 2011

Coronation of Rama, Sathya Saibaba blesses!

The Coronation of Rama!

Bharatha was stopped in time from self-immolation. Within few hours, they spotted the air borne chariot carrying the Divine couple Rama, Lakshmana and Sita along with other important dignitaries of monkey kingdom. It descended exactly at the place where Bharatha was awaiting anxiously. Rama on alighting went straightaway to Bharatha and embraced him tightly. He could feel that Bharatha was literally living a life of recluse all through these fourteen years. Bharatha could not contain his tears on seeing his brother Rama back. Then Lakshmana fondled Bharatha and expressed his deep appreciation for the vigil he kept for the return of Rama. Bharatha fell at the feet of Sita and she blessed him profusely for the devotion he has showered for Rama. Rama himself has removed the matted hair of Bharatha and loosened the hair as a mark of completion of his vigil.

The citizens of Ayodhya decorated their houses and the paths leading to the palace with colorful fastoons and green leaves. Everywhere there were welcome songs for the brothers and Sita. As the chariot sent to bring Rama entered the precincts of Ayodhya all the citizens prostrated to Rama and Rama blessed his dear citizens and acknowledged their love. Everywhere there was only a festive look. Soon the minister Sumanthra and the queen mothers were near the entrance to welcome Rama, Sita and Lakshmana. They missed Bharatha too since he never entered Ayodhya after he started staying away. Minister Sumanthra consulted sage Vashista, fixed an auspicous hour for the coronation of Rama which was over due. The citizens were really happy to witness the ascension of Rama to the throne of Ayodhya. This was attended by Sugriva and other monkey chieftains. Hanuman was present during the entire festival.

Thus Rama fulfilled the vow to his father and started the righteous administration of Ayodhya. The guests from Kishkintha like Sugriva enjoyed many days of stay at Ayodhya. They chose to return to their kingdom. Rama has poured many precious gifts on them and he sent them safely. But Hanuman has chosen not to leave Rama. One day in the conference hall, Rama has given gifts to all the assembled people and Brahmins. It was gold, precious jewels, cows and gifts of land. Then Rama thought that he has left Hanuman. Then Sita too mentioned that they should gift something to Hanuman. Sita gave Hanuman a precious pearl garland she was wearing. But Hanuman started biting each pearl and he was looking at some thing. He was just throwing each pearl on the ground. None could gauge the reason especially Sita was sad since Hanuman was behaving in some odd manner. Rama asked Hanuman, "Why you are throwing the precious pearls on the ground? Hanuman told Rama, "Lord I wanted to know whether it contained your beautiful form. Since it didn't contain, i have to throw it as worthless! Then somebody asked him, how he is keeping his body? Whether it contains the form of Rama? Hanuman immediately cut open his chest and there every body could see, Rama,and Sita sitting in the throne! Thus he was the greatest votary of Rama. Each hair in his body was repeating the name "Rama". He plucked his hair and proved to the gathering that it is repeating the name Rama! Rama just embraced him and said, I have given myself to you. This is the highest gift I can give.

The story of Ramayana contains many moral teachings for the human race. Though it originated in India, the teachings equally apply to the entire world. Sathya Saibaba has written the beautiful book, "Rama Katha Rasa Vahini" which is available on net from sssbpt.org. Thank you everybody who shared their time to read this historic epic. Thanks to hub pages for publishing this hub. Thanks to all commentators who followed the great story of Rama. Thanks to Saibaba who enabled me to pen this great epic. Om Sri Sai Ram.
