Two boons asked by Kaika

with 3 comments

Kaika asked Dasaratha for two varams1 To caronate Baratha as the would be king to succed Dararatha
2 To send Raama to Vana vaasam for 14 years immediately so that the way for Bharatha’s youva Pattabhuishekam would be paved without any thornes

So Rama left before Bharatha arrived to honour his father’s varam to kaika
It was Dasaratha’s duty to fufill the the other varam given to Kaika
Dasaratha was alive for 3 more days after Raama left and died 5 days before Bharatha arrived
Raama as per his promise never would enter Ayodhya, Kishkinda or Sri Lanka Or any other janavaasam after he entered the forests either for Sugriva’s or vibhishana’s or Bharatha’s or his own caronations for 14 years
Raama could only tell Bharatha do What their father wanted. BHarath awho did not give his word to his father or mother did not care to honour his father’s word!
So he placed Raama’s padukas on the throne and ruled as Raama’s representative until raama’s return

So after Dasaratha , Raama was the ifso facto king of Audhya after Dasratha
He was the king in exile and he behaved like one

  1. Dear Sir,
    What is the context for this observation?

    • When I wrote that Raama who did not show any caste/jaathi feeling in the cases of Sabari, Guha and vanaraas, did not kill Sambuka and the story appears to me as a Prakshiptham done by some anti Raama person, My frien Sri V. Nagesvara Rao said Raama the vana-vaasi could behave differently from Raama the king. He felt Raama the king might have been obliged to kill Sambuka to protect Varnaas’rama Dharmaas. I thought about it and wrote this. That was the context
