The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Ramachandra
Appeared on this earth in Raghu-kula in Avodhva
As the son of King Dasaratha and Queen Kaushalya
Elder to the princes Bharata, Lakshmana and Satrughna 

He is ever seen in the company of Mahalakshmi as Sita
His eternal servitor Hanuman, and loving brother Lakshmana
Both brothers wielded a bow and arrows and other weapons
As kshatriyas, it was their bounden duty to protect their citizens 

Lord Rama is maryada-purusottama, the most perfect among human beings
In which role he traversed the earth and engaged with all earthly beings
Compassionate to the weak, kind to the poor, helpful to those in penury.
A nemesis for all demons and miscreants, whom he dispatched vigorously 

Out of his great sense of duty, he agreed to spend fourteen years in deportation
Deep in the forest, with Lakshmana and Sita, living in desolate deprivation
They lived on fruits and roots, far away from the luxuries and opulence of the city
They chose the life of hermits, and underwent much hardship and poverty 

Towards the end of their vana-vasa, the demon Ravana took a fancy for mother sita
By various devious means and subterfuge, he managed to kidnap mother Sita
And imprisoned her in Lanka, where she refused to submit to the demonic desires of Ravana
Eventually Hanumanji found Mother Sita, and the Lord led his army towards Lanka 

Being a demon, Ravana had not listened to the saintly counsel of brother Vibhishana
He mounted a counter attack on the army of Lord Ram, but all his efforts were in vain
After a lengthy battle, in which numerous warriors on both sides gave up their life
The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Rama, snuffed out Ravana's life and rescued his wife 

The Lord's vana-vasawas at an end, and Ayodhya was his for the asking
He ruled Avodhva for many years, as a wise, much loved and magnanimous king 

The Lord lived a life of service to others, with great humility and sense of duty
His life is an example for all, in its sacrifice and values which reinforce His great divinity 

His great affection for the poor old woman Sabari is a glowing example of love's expression
Even though of lowly birth, Lord Rama accorded to her the highest platform of pure devotion
Lord Rama thus enacted his transcendental lila on this earth
Ramachandra reigns supreme in every devotee's heart!
