There is many times the debate; whether Ram, the son of King Dashrath was a normal human being or He was the real Supreme God who is eternal, ever-existing, infinite, omnipresent and primeval? Let’s see what Bhagwat Gita & other religious books say about that.
In Bhagwat Gita Lord Krishna tells Arjuna that:
"yada yada hi dharmasya
glanir bhavati bharata
tadatmanam srjamy aham" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Four verse 7)
"Sri Krishna said: Whenever and wherever there is a decline in virtue/religious practice, O Arjuna, and a predominant rise of irreligion—at that time I descend Myself the Lord of the universe, i.e. I manifest Myself as an embodied being."
vinasaya cha duskritam
sambhavami yuge yuge" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Four verse 8)
"Sri Krishna said: To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I Myself appear, millennium after millennium."
So as per Bhagwat Gita the Supreme God, "Lord Vishnu" descends on the earth to deliver mankind from time to time. In "Treta Yuga" or "Treta Millennium" He took the form of "Lord Rama" & in "Dwapra Yuga" or "Dwapra Millennium" He took the form of "Lord Krishna". So the Supreme God, "Lord Vishnu" descends on the earth from time to time as Avatars & hence both "Lord Rama" & "Lord Krishna" are the forms of Supreme God only.
In below verse, Lord Sri Krishna fully establishes that He Himself is Lord Rama also who is the wielder of weapons like bow & arrow:
Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 31:
"pavanah pavatam asmi
ramah shastra-bhrtam aham
jhasanam makaras chasmi
srotasam asmi jahnavi" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 31)
"Sri Krishna says to Arjuna: Of purifiers I am the wind, of the wielders of weapons I am Rama, of fishes I am the shark, and of flowing rivers I am the Ganges."
In this "Bhagwat Gita Chapter Ten-Verse 31", "Lord Krishna" himself is clearly saying that "Among the wielders of weapons, He himself is Lord Rama." So this verse also clearly establishes that "Lord Rama" & "Lord Krishna" are the forms of Supreme God, "Lord Vishnu" only & hence are one & the same being at two different times.
In the Ramayana also it is said time & again that Lord Vishnu only incarnated as Lord Rama as the son of King Dashrath in the "Treta Yuga" or "Treta Millennium".
In Kabir Ji's Holy Book also Kabir Ji has taken name of Lord Rama many times. Below is a verse from it:
Ek Ram Dashrath ka beta, ek Ram jo ghat ghat mein baitha
Ek Ram ja ka sakal pasaara, ek Ram jo sabse nyaara
Meaning of above verse is:
The one Ram is Dashrath's son, the same Ram abides in every pore of creation
The same Ram created everything, the same Ram is the most unique
So from above verse also it is clear that One Ram who was born as the son of King Dashrath is the one who is Omnipresent God & who sits in each & every atom, pore of this creation. So let’s pray to our Sovereign Lord King who is Sri Ram Chander, the Son of the King Dashrath. Lord Ram alone is the Giver and all creatures are beggars of Him. So the Akaal Purkh who resides in everyone is Sri Ram Chander only who was born to King Dashrath in the "Treta Yuga".
Saint Kabir also says that 'Ram' is the one who is All-pervading Lord. Saint Kabir, always chanted the name of Ram, while in meditation & also kept in mind that the same Ram is the Omnipresent God. So let's worship "Lord Ram" as the incarnation of "Lord Vishnu" & also the Omnipresent God & who sits in each & every atom, pore of this creation, the one who is always all around us.
Jai Shri Krishna
