The epics were set to story,
From the lives and deeds of real men;
The Avatar is allegory,
And inspiration for the real!
Ideal man who walked the earth;
In the act of worshipping him,
We imbibe some of his qualities!
We need lodestars to guide us,
On what's right and what's moral;
Gods are personification,
Of all that's high and good in us!
The Lord didn't have an easy time,
When He chose to walk this earth;
His troubles were like the rest of us,
So were his joys and sufferings!
His life serves as lesson for us,
His deeds act as inspiration;
In each one of us there is Ram,
Waiting to emerge with his blessings!
