Chapter-3. Rama – The Apotheosis of Human Perfection ( Sri Ramanavami )
The moment you begin to know what God thinks about you, you will not speak afterwards; your mouth will be hushed.
It will be hushed for two reasons.
One reason is that you would look so small and insignificant, a nothing, and all your importance vanishes in toto when you compare yourself in His light.
The other reason is that you would feel lifted up into a state of joy that the time has come for you to realise your true duty as a human being, which is nothing but realisation of God.
This is what Sri Rama teaches us in the Rama Gita, as His final message – how the soul should come out of the cage of flesh, like a lion breaking its boundaries and roaring in its majesty or power.
The moment you begin to recognise your true status in this world, you become powerful, not because you possess large wealth or you have a seat in the Parliament or in the cabinet, but because you have a seat in the constitution of the universe.
When this seat is given to you, you become a member of the government of the cosmos.
And here the powers are not given by votes or by plebiscite.
People do not raise hands to make you a member. Something else – mysterious and miraculous – takes place. Your cells become revitalised.
They get charged with a power totally unknown up to this time. From where does this power come? It does not come from anywhere.
