Authentic narration of the epic with life lessons
Life is a constant reminder that nothing, however powerful in one season, remains so in the next. These endless cycles of change could really spook someone who is unprepared to face the realities. Remember that situations of helplessness are always created by one’s own limited imagination.
- Perception appears larger than reality. Many were afraid to battle the Lankans, but grounded in reality, Rama and his army managed to free Sita.
- Fear results in pain. Lying broken and bruised, Sampati did not believe he could help until he did and it made all the difference.
- Clarity leads to freedom. Rama never wavered in his single-minded pursuit, and eventually got exactly what he wanted.
Do you have the courage to face your fears?
