Day 4 A to Z Challenge 2015 - Delight
Young Rama he stole the hearts of all
So proud his mother Kaushalya
Sweet Sita prayed the Lord to grace her hall
She was the golden girl of Mithila
Divinity delighted every heart
Citizens of heaven included
Sita Rama though far apart
Rama and Sita in their respective homelands of Ayodhya and Mithila were the delight of all the people. Both had endearing personalities.
Though Kaushalya was proud of her son, she was never arrogant. She was a devoted mother as she was a neglected wife. King Dasharath though a dynamic,shrewd and kind king, showered his devotion on his younger and favourite queen Kaikeyi.
Why you may ask do I write about Kaushalya and not Dashrath? I believe that it was Kaushalya's influence that shaped the character of Rama. Kaushalya showered her love on Rama and was a devoted mother. Her love and devotion to her son made him a loving, secure and confident person.
The vision of Lord Vishnu that Kaushalya experienced before Lord Rama was born, is a clear indication that she would be a great influence in his life and shape his character. Being the eldest son, he would be moulded to be the future king - powerful, dynamic, courageous, discerning. But Kaushalya shaped the wise, gentle, respectful, loving and gracious side of Rama.
In Mithila, young Sita, turned her devotion to Lord Vishnu. Perhaps somewhere in the depths of her soul, she felt a stirring, a knowing. Devotion to Him gave her the greatest joy. King Janak played a big part in shaping her character. He was a brave, wise and learned king, well loved and respected by his people. Sita grew up to be not only loving, compassionate and kind but also with great wisdom and tenacity two key characteristics she needed in her adulthood.
Rama and Sita, growing up to be perfectly aligned to each other, complementary and balanced. The convergence of their paths in the future required them to be both individually whole and perfectly complete when merged like two interlocking pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.Though far apart on Earth, they were connected through time and space, eternal soul mates.
But what roles will they play on the Earth? That's coming up in future verses.
Love is in the air. May we always find delight in the Divine.

The Ramayana is a historical chronicle of events during the life of Lord Rama in an ancient time in a land called Bharatvarsh a part of which is now modern day India.
This year's theme was given to me through meditation. But more than just a theme I was also asked to write this from the perspective of Divine love and not just a recounting of the events as they took place. Hence the essence of my posts is "Love is in the air".
The individual theme and tone of my verses are also given to me. And I try to convey what Spirit wants to say through my poetry and prose. In essence, I only transcribe what is given to me, the author of these posts is my soul, the Universe, God and Goddess.
