Sathya Sai Baba

The Ramayana unfolds the story of Rama. It is also the story of Divinity. Further, the Ramayana is the epic that unfolds the story of Sita, which is that of the individual self. The third aspect of the Ramayana is the annihilation of Ravana. The destruction of Ravana signifies the destruction of ignorance. Ignorance is extinguished when we realise perfectly the relationship between the individual self and the Absolute Self. There are three syllables ‘ra, aa, and ma’ in the word Rama. ‘Ra’ signifies the principle of fire; ‘aa’ signifies the principle of the Sun; ‘ma’ signifies the principle of the Moon. The Sun principle dispels the darkness of ignorance. The Moon principle cools the inner heart. And the fire principle destroys illusion.

- Summer Roses on Blue Mountains, 1976, Ch 1

Every living being in this world is knowingly or unknowingly on a spiritual pilgrimage. - Baba
