Yogic significance of Ramayana

The Ramayana is not just a story which happened long ago; it has a philosophical, spiritual significance and a deep truth in it. 

The words ‘rays’ and ‘radiance’ come from the Sanskrit root word ‘ra’. ‘Ra’ means light, ‘Ma’ means within me, in my heart. So, Rama means the light within me. That which is radiant in every particle of the being is Rama.

Rama was born to Dasharath and Kousalya. Dasharath means ‘Ten Chariots’. The ten chariots symbolize the five sense organs and five organs of action. Kousalya means ‘skill’. The skillful rider of the ten chariots can give birth to Ram. When the ten are used skillfully, radiance is born within.

Rama was born in Ayodhya. Ayodhya means ‘a place where no war can happen’. When there is no conflict in our mind, then the radiance can dawn.

The Ramayana is not just a story which happened long ago; it has a philosophical, spiritual significance and a deep truth in it. It is said that the Ramayana is happening in your own body.

Your soul is Rama,

your mind is Sita,

your breath or life-force(prana) is Hanuman,

your awareness is Laxmana, and

your ego is Ravana. 


When the mind was stolen by Ravana (the ego) then the soul got restless.

Now the soul cannot reach the mind on its own, it has to take the help of the breath – the prana.

With the help of the prana, the mind got reunited with the soul, and the ego vanished.
