Swamiji, Jai srimannarayana
Why Rama has sent Sita to forests when she was pregnant? Just by some comments made by drunkard washer man? As a king, he has to verify/check the allegations made by some body before punishing. Before returning to Ayodhya, Sita has entered the fire and has proven her prativatya. Please clear my doubts. Dhanyavad Swamiji. peram venkata sureshu
AT THE OUTSET, ONE NEEDS TO REMEMBER THAT RAMAYANAM WAS NOT BOOK OF POETRY, WRITTEN BY SOME POET.. IT WAS HISTORY. VALMIKI RECORDED ALL THAT WHATEVER HAD HAPPENED. HENCE THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY QUESTION LIKE ‘WHY IT HAD HAPPENED’. ALL THAT WE NEED NOT KNOW HOW SOMETHING WAS HAPPENED. AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND THE REASON IF POSSIBLE, JUSTIFICATION SHOULD BE ACCORDING TO WHATEVER HAD HAPPENED NOT ACCORDING TO OUR OWN LOGIC.
NOW, RAMA KNOWS THAT SITHA WAS PURE AND SITHA KNOWS THAT RAMA WAS ALSO GOOD. WITHOUT SITHA’S ENTERING INTO THE FIRE ITSELF RAMA WAS SURE OF SITHA’S CHARACTER. BUT HE ALSO WAS A MAN. SO HUMANLY WEAKNESSES BOTHERED HIM. THAT WAS A DIFFERENT ISSUE. SHE PROVED HER GREATNESS, WHILE COMING OUT FROM THE FIRE. BUT
WHO KNOW ABOUT IT? ONE MAN, HIS OWN BROTHER KNOWS. ALL OTHERS WHO WITNESSED WERE MONKEYS, DEMONS AND DEVATHAS. NO OTHER MAN WAS THERE TO SAY. SO THERE IS ALWAYS A ROOM FOR SUSPICION. AND THAT SUSPICION WAS THERE IN ALL THE PEOPLE OF AYODHYA. ONLY ONE CAME OUT AND OTHER WERE HIDING IN THEIR HEARTS ONLY. THAT WAS THE REASON THEY DID NOT ASK RAMA, WHEN THEY CAME TO KNOW THAT SITHA WAS SENT TO FOREST. RAMA GOT IT CONFIRMED BY THEN, SO HE DECIDED TO SATISFY THE WHOLE COUNTRY, RATHER THAN KEEPING HIMSELF AND SITHA HAPPY BY LIVING TOGETHER. SO HE SENT HER TO THE FOREST. THEY MADE THE COUNTRY FEEL HAPPY
AT THE COST OF THEIR OWN LIVES AND JOY.
