Rama’s life was full of disastrous situations, so why is he sought and worshipped by so many? Sadhguru explains, Rama’s significance is not in his life situations, but in the way he conducted himself gracefully throughout his life. Sadhguru Talks @ Darshan, May 2011, III, USA
Sadhguru narrates a beautiful incident in Rama’s life when, after slaying the 10-headed Ravana, he chose to do penance in deep regret for destroying that one head of Ravana’s which possessed great wisdom, devotion and generosity. As Sadhguru reminds us, we all have 10 heads or more to display at different times, but each individual has at least one head of love, beauty and compassion. Both in ourselves and in others, Sadhguru tells us, it is time that we learned to recognize and acknowledge the beauty of the roses among the thorns.
