We often trick ourselves into thinking that our identity is only individual, but we are much more than that.  We have a family identity, where would we be without our parents and forefathers who laid the path for our safety and success in life.

What is true beauty? What good is a precious jewel if left at the top of a mountain? The splendor of a jewel is surely appreciated when adorned by a beautiful lady or a great King.

There is no charm in the songs of worldly men; the wise alone know it is the by the power of Shri Rama’s story which purifies us in the Kali age. The heart of a poet is like the sea, his mind is like shells which contain the goddess of poetry (Saraswati). As the poet pours fourth his beautiful verses, pearls of wisdom shine brightly throughout the ever dark ocean of the Kali age. And if those pearls are strung together by the glorious thread of Shri Rama’s story, then the hearts and souls will find eternal delight.

I am born a demon with no purity, unable to perform any ritual or spiritual exercise. Neither am I able to dedicate my mind to Lord Rama. But,.. - Sundarkanda, Sri Ramacaritmanas.
