Lord Rama is a very popular deity in Hindu mythology and religion. One of the greatest epics of our time, The Ramayana – written by the great Saint Valmiki, boasts Lord Rama as the protagonist. He is shown carrying a bow and arrow depicting that he is ready to destroy evil and protect righteousness. With his wife Sita Devi, and humble brother Lakshmana, Lord Rama sets on an epic adventure. On his journey he meets Lord Hanuman, and other friends who become his dearest devotees and legends themselves.
According to the Ramayana, the purpose of Rama’s incarnation is to fight evil and subdue it. In this incarnation, that evil takes the form of Ravan – the demon king of Lanka. Rama is THE IDEAL MAN, IDEAL KING, IDEAL SON, IDEAL BROTHER, and the form of righteousness (Ramo Vigrahavan Dharmah).
