He reacted upon the griefs of other people. He took pleasure in the happiness of others. He stood for what is right at all times. As a Model Man, He shows us how one should make use of knowledge that any other creature cannot. All other creatures can use their knowledge just for their survival within the current body, but cannot plan for the ultimate journey, they lack that level of knowledge!
A perfect human being is one who is able to use the knowledge and apply in five levels without contradicting or compromising the values of any level.
Several characteristics that define a perfect individual, such as: eating what is right (satvik food, faultless by origin, or feel), speaking correctly (satyam, hitham, priyam, mitham, madhuram), ability to correct mistakes and many more! Once this is achieved, major step is achieved.
Snighdha jana samvibhkatham hi sahyavedanam bhavathi, said Kalidasa! Only when you share an emotion with people who love you, then it is considered worth experiencing. Rama dealt with family very compassionately, not forgetting or contradicting to his knowledge on ‘Individual’ level. His father did not say a word about taking back the promise he made to Kaikeyi, but he wanted Rama to ignore his given word and take the throne. Rama knew the pulse of human psychology at right depth. So, he did not get swayed by the words that his father’s emotion was talking, he went by what his father really wanted to happen. His father wanted his word to be kept.
He also heart-fully thanked Kaikeyi and respected her. The 14 years he spent in exile are talked the most, not the entire 11,000 years that he was alive on the Earth! And he considered Kaikeyi to be a key player in such great time when he met many scholars and sages in forests!
Rama raised above caste, creed, race, and all when he conducted himself in the society. Guha was his friend, Sugreeva almost a King to him, Vibheeshana as a brother. He sincerely believed that there is any enmity is with the conduct of a person, but not the person himself. Bhagavad Ramanuja applied the same, where he raised above all differences, not eliminated them. Elimination is not practical, one should raise above them to find the actual common ground where everyone as souls are equal in the eyes of God!
When your heart is full of concern, the nature responds to you without a doubt. When Rama came back to the forests from Lanka, it seems the trees that were dry began to grow green from the beginning of the trunk! Understand your role in nature, don’t be greedy and assume all resources exist for your luxury! Learn to satisfy your needs from the nature and be more attentive towards enhancing spiritual/mental [manasika] abilities for higher purpose than increased luxuries.
Knowing that the ultimate saviour, and controller is God keeps one humble to ground. This knowledge makes one stick to his true nature – obedience towards almighty, equality towards everyone else, respects towards elders who share the divine wisdom, and servitude towards all beings as service to God!
