Love is in the air - eXit



Day 24 A to Z Challenge 2015 - eXit 

Ravana knew not who he faced
He laughed at the man with the bow
But death was ready to him embrace
At Rama's command from below

At last the demon fell to his death
As arrows pierced his body
Rama gave him due respect
Divine love even for the enemy

Ravana could not see the divinity in Rama and thought himself invincible. Rama gave Ravana many chances to surrender Sita.

Ravana was highly knowledgeable and intelligent but lost his way and used his knowledge and intelligence in the wrong way.  Rama gave Ravana many chances to surrender Sita and tried to get him back on track several times and only destroyed him when the demon stubbornly refused.

It was only at the point of death that Ravana realised that he faced Lord Vishnu in the form of Rama. As he fell he looked at Rama and called out his name. The ever forgiving Rama gave the demon due respect. Divine love shining through for all.

Lord Rama's name is bliss. It brings us peace. He loves us unconditionally and forgives us if we truly repent our misdeeds, seek forgiveness and takes steps to redeem.

So how will Rama and Sita react when they face each other again? Brought by the letter Y.

Love is in the air. May you always feel that Divine love. May His name always bring you peace. May you use your knowledge wisely.

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.



Warm Regards

  1. It takes a very big heart to show kindness to an enemy. Your post brought that out, Suzy.

  2. "Divine Love even for the enemy". That is, as we would have said years ago, "pretty heavy". Who of us can truly love our enemy? I hope I use my knowledge wisely. Alana - ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

  3. It is said that even if you have never chanted the name of the divine Lord in your life, yet the lord forgives those who do so in their final moments! Ravana realised that..although quite late!

  4. Loved how you ended the poem, divine love even for an enemy. That sums up how strong Rama's character was.

  5. Yes, sometimes we realize our mistakes only when it's too late and not everyone is like Lord Rama, to forgive us. Waiting for tomorrow's post for the reunion of Lord Rama and Sita :)

  6. Showing your enemy mercy is something that's not easy, especially when you have tried your best to avoid a war. The story's coming to an end!

  7. Giving your opponent several chances to redeem themselves, and showing them kindness in-spite of what they have done is never easy. It speaks volumes about the strength of character of a person.
