Consider each brother, sister, comrade, companion, and collaborator of Rama as an example of a person saturated with Righteousness (dharma). In Ramayana, Dasaratha is the representative of the merely physical, with the ten senses. The three qualities (gunas) — serenity, activity, and ignorance (satva, rajas and tamas), are the three queens. The four goals of life, the purusharthas — righteousness, wealth, fulfilment of desires, and liberation are the four sons. Lakshmana is the intellect; Sugriva is discrimination (viveka); Vali is despair; and Hanuman is the embodiment of courage. The bridge is built over the ocean of delusion. The three Rakshasa chiefs, Ravana, Kumbhakarna, and Vibhishana, are personifications of the active (rajasic), ignorant (tamasic), and pure (sattvic) qualities. Sita is the Awareness of the Universal Divinity (Brahma-jnana), which the individual must acquire and regain while undergoing travails in the crucible of life. Be established in the faith that the Lord (Rama) is the Reality in your daily existence.
