On Rama Navami we celebrate the appearance of Lord Rama. And most important for all of us to understand about the appearance of the Lord, is how to cultivate the appearance of the Lord within our own hearts. Until people establish the Kingdom of Ram within, there is no possibility of doing so without. In other words until our hearts are restored to their natural state -full of devotion — there will always be the difficulties of corruption, and quarrel. The Lord descended to this world as Lord Ram to show us how to fulfill this most important mission in all of our life, to realize that the kingdom of the God is within our own heart. This is the universal principle. In Bible it is also said, “The kingdom of God is within”. Krishna tells in Bhagavad-Gita, “sarvasya caham hridi sannivishto mattah smritir jnanam apohanam ca”, that He is seated in everyone’s heart, and from Him come remembrance, knowledge and forgetfulness. Wherever the Lord is, that is the kingdom of God. Ram is dwelling within us. But why don’t we feel Him? Why don’t we love Him? Why don’t we see Him? How to revive that original consciousness that is within the soul? This is the subject of all great sacred texts.
