Greetings all, I wanted to discuss about the rules and Principles in this post based on our Epic Hero’s Lord Rama from Ramayana and Lord Krishna from Mahabharata .
Here Principle Refers to Dharma ( right behavior and social order )
Lets me start with
Yuga’s embedded with these epics –
Ramayana is about the Treta Yuga, which is the earlier innocent age. As a person, Rama personifies the characteristics of an ideal person (Purushottama) who is to be emulated. He had within him all the desirable virtues that any individual would seek to aspire, and he fulfills all his moral obligations (Maryada). Rama’s purity and piety in his intentions and actions inspires affection and devotion for him from a variety of characters from different backgrounds.
Mahabharata is about the Dwapara Yuga, which is slightly more corrupt and darker age where people know what to do but no one follows. At that time Krishna showed a path (Just showed) which to follow. If he wants he could finished the whole Kurukshetra war in a single day. But he did not do, instead of that he directed Pandavas, so that they will know what to do.
Portrayal of these Epics –
The Ramayana is a Sanskrit epic written by Valmiki. It is regarded as one of the two great works of Indian literature, along with the Mahabharata. The Ramayana also plays an important role in Hindu literature. It depicts the duties of relationships, portraying ideal characters like the ideal father, the ideal servant, the ideal brother, the ideal wife and the ideal king. On the other side Mahabharata depicts characters like Krishna, who always breaks the rules, Yudhishtir who always follow the rules.
But the question arises when we compare Rama and Krishna. Whom should we follow? Rama, who strictly follow the rules? Or Krishna, who breaks the rules? And what can be drawn from these two great epics and applied to the current business situations?
