Love is in the Air - Joining



Day 10 A to Z Challenge 2015 - Joining

Sita to Gauri Mata did request
It's only Rama with whom I'll go
Then at Vishwamitra's kind behest
Did Rama lift up the bow

A garland of flowers in Sita's trembling hands
Heart beating in joy and desire
She placed it around the neck of Rama
His demeanour calm but heart on fire

Gauri Mata - one of the benevolent manifestations of Goddess Parvati. 

With Rama remaining firm in his place, Sita requests Divine intervention. Sita's human side takes over, she prays hard for what she wants, just like we do. All through life we believe that we are invincible, we can do it all by ourselves and then when things don't go our way, we look to the heavens and ask Divinity to bring us the things we want. But nothing happens by chance and what is destined is bound to occur but in Divine timing.

Rama waited patiently until Guru Vishwamitra gave him permission to lift the bow. At this time not only was he under the care of the Guru but Rama recognized the need for the perfect moment for this great event to take place. The cosmos is like a musical orchestra and each note finely tuned to create the perfect melody. Each event has its moment in time and space, a moment too soon or a moment later and the balance of the cosmos is shaken, the melody distorted. Rama understood that Guru Vishwamitra would provide him with the most appropriate moment for this momentous occasion.

Rama's lifting of the bow and breaking it signals the crossover from being in the care and protection of his father and teachers to where he now stands in his own right. It also signals the moment when a Divine strength amplifies, the joining together of God and Goddess to commence their spiritual purpose on Earth.  The breaking of the bow sends thunderous reverberations across the cosmos signalling a warning to some and is a cause for great joy to others, just like the thunder and rain that is a blessing to a drought stricken land and a cause for concern where waters are in flood.

Such a moment of joy for Sita and Rama. His gazed lovingly fixed on Sita as she walked up to him, her eyes darting up and down stealing his glances. Sita emotional and heart beating wildly desirous yet nervous, Rama's calm demeanour trying to put her at ease and reassuring her. Their loving energies entwining and setting their hearts on fire. Both savouring this glorious and divine moment and consecrating it to their memory. Both never once doubting if this was the right thing to do, for a soul made connection is never in doubt. God and Goddess enjoying their human encounter.  Such a beautiful moment.

Rama and Sita so in love head off to Ayodhya. What awaits them there is brought to you by the letter K tomorrow.

Love is in the air. May you all know that Divinely blessed love of your life when the moment arrives, never in doubt always in love.

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. Thanks Eli. Yes very true, Banganga was made by Lord Rama's arrow. He brought the Ganges to that part of the land. hence Ban (arrow) Ganga (Ganges), Perhpas this was the Jatayu part of the story.
