Rama – Gunabhirama -16 – He is Satyakama, how can kaama trouble Him?
In the previous verse we saw Valmiki Ramayana mention that Rama is not affected by any of the defects like anger, envy etc. In the next few verses, we will see why the six enemies, and other defects, do not have any effect on Rama. This is based on Sangraha Ramayana of Narayana Panditacharya. The six enemies – kaama (lust), krodha (anger), mada (pride/intoxication), lobha (greed), moha (illusion), maatsarya (envy).
सर्वत्र सर्वानपि सर्वदापि प्राप्नोति कामान् ननु सत्यकामः |
कामः कथं द्रुह्यति तेन जातु सीतापतिं विश्वपतिं सुतं ते || (सं। रा | २।१।२२)
Lord Rama is ‘Satyakama’. He has all that He desires for, at all times, and at all places. How can such Lord of the world, Lord of Sita, be affected by desire (and lust)?
Rama’s wish never goes waste. He gets whatever He wishes for. When His desires are fulfilled always how can He be troubled by kaama (desire/lust)?
‘aapta kaamasya kaa spriha’ says Veda.
