Victory Chariot of Lord Ram

Victory Chariot of Lord Ram

Every individual in the world wishes to see only victory in life. No body wants to get defeated. From the point of view of the body, thoughts, speech, dialogue, property, dignity, wearing, residence, vehichles, resources, social status, etc, everyone wants only to win. He wants to win the whole world. But in Geeta, Lord Krishna said that one who has control over his body, mind, habits, nerves, sensual desire, etc, is the real winner. The person who wins in this world, internally or externally, is great. Vedas too inspire us for victory: 

'Ahamindro na parajigye. Aganinrasmi janmana jaatveda, ghreetam men chakshuramritam ma aasan. Arakstridhatoo rajaso vimanoajastro gharmo havirsmi nama. Kritam me dakshine haste jayo me savya aahitah. Vijay arthat Vishesh jay.'

Getting victory is not an easy affair. Efforts made for a long period of time non-stop and full of dedication lead us to victory. Describing victory, a poet said, "Victory and earth are daughters of some affluent person. They always go to a powerful person and not to a coward. If you choose victory? Will you become winner of the whole earth? Then learn how to sacrifi ce your blood."

In this context, I remember an instance in Ramayana. In the 57th Sarg of Yuddhakand, when Lord Ram and Ravan were in front of each other, Ravan has a huge and well equipped chariot and he is also equipped with arrow, shield, bow, sword, and all other means to attack and defend himself, and on the other side Lord Ram, in a very humble state, wearing simple dress, simple slippers in the feet. He is standing on the ground without any chariot. Seeing this state, Vibhishan became frightened and said- O lord, you don't have any strong weapon to attack your enemy or defend your enemy. I am frightened, how will you defeat this giant?

Ravan Rathi Virath Raghuvira,
Dekh Vibhishan Bhayahu Adhira,
