Abstracts of Talks 

राम एक चरित अनेक, Dr. Omprakash K Gupta

We believe that Lord Ram took Human form to perform various Lilas, i.e., charit, for the benefit of mankind. He acted like an ordinary human being, but did extraordinary to teach us lessons of brotherhood, friendship, compassion, and many other such noble virtues. He also taught as our duties and responsibilities as a child, youth, husband, warrior, friend, son, etc. This talk will give a quick summary of many Lilas (Charit) of Lord Ram.  

 

Ram as a Husband, Shri Vikas Budhiraja

Maryada Purushottam Lord Rama established the highest principles of ethics, morality and religiosity for the human civilization. In doing so, He made great sacrifices as a son, brother, king and father. However, the greatest sacrifice He made in His manifest pastimes was as a husband. This presentation will make a humble attempt to espouse the Lord's glories and the significance of His sacrifices as the husband of Srimati Sita Devi, His eternal consort."

भक्तवत्सल राम, Dr. Umesh Bhatia

The extraordinary bhakti of Hanumanji will be discussed.

 

गुरु राम, Smt. Vimla Agrawal

The necessity and qualities of a true Guru in life thru Lord Ram's character.  How Lord Ram being Bhagwan Himself is worshipping all the saintly people. How Lord Ram is perfect teacher and perfect disciple.  

 

दूल्हे राम, Smt. Usha Mehra

यद्द्यपि दूल्हे राम अद्भुत सौंदर्य, श्रृंगार, वैभव व प्रीति की चरम सीमा पर विराजित हैं, फिर भी वे सरलता, मनुजता व मर्यादा के निरंतर पालक हैं. तुसली के रामचरिमानस में दूल्हे राम मात्र एक बार बोले हैं. उनका दूल्हे रूप का चरित आज के दूल्हों तो स्पष्ट संकेत देता है कि  विवाह संस्कार में शीलता तथा सादगी का कितना महत्त्व है. विवाह व्यवस्था और व्यवहार पर परिवार एवं सम्बन्धियों का एक विशेष महत्व बताया गया है. वैवाहिक जीवन में राम-सीता जैसा प्रेम और पारवारिक व सामाजिक मान्यता पाने के लिए अपने आचरण पर विशेष ध्यान देने की आवश्यकता है.

 

पुत्र राम (Ram as a Son), Shri Ramaseshu Yaddanapudi

Pum-nama-narakan-trayate iti putraha. In this talk we ruminate what Lord Rama did to fulfill the above. How he followed dharma to ensure his mother and father did not fall from the high pedestal of Dharma.

 

Ram as a Warrior, Shri Chikeersha Puvvada

In the modern U.S. military, there exist a set of guidelines known as the Rules of Engagement or ROE for short. The Rules of Engagement instruct soldiers on when they can and cannot use deadly violence against others. What does the U.S. military's ROE have to do with Rama as a warrior? Throughout the Ramayana, Rama strictly adheres to the U.S. military's ROE. But why is this something worth noting? The U.S. military’s ROE exists because the United States government wants their military to follow an ethical standard on when it’s permissible to kill. It’s an ethical standard the US government believes is befitting of the most powerful nation in the world but also a nation that wants to be perceived as the most just nation in the world. We all believe Rama is justice incarnate, but as a lawyer, it is fascinating that by the US military’s legal standards, Rama is always just during battle.

Ram as a Friend, Dr. Sen Pathak

In this talk Dr. Pathak will speak on Lord Ram as a friend and take his friendship with Sugriv as an example.

 

 

वक्ता राम - ओमप्रकाश गुप्ता

हालांकि रामचरितमानस प्रभु राम की लीला की कथा है, प्रभु स्वयं बहुत कम बोले हैं। क्या हम जानते हैं कि श्री रामचरितमानस में प्रभु राम ने सब से पहले कौन से शब्द (वचन) कहे? उनके श्रीमुख से निकला सबसे पहला शब्द है 'निर्भय'! जब वे विश्वामित्र ऋषि को कहते हैं:  निर्भय जग्य करहु तुम्ह जाई आप अब बिना किसी भय के यज्ञ करें। अर्थात, उनका सबसे पहला संदेश है कि - जब प्रभु साथ हैं तो डरने कि कोई आवश्यकता नहीं। हम प्रभु के बोले हुए शब्दों का एक अवलोकन करेंगे और देखेंगे उन्होनें अपनी वाणी से हमें क्या-क्या उपदेश और शिक्षा दी है।
