We all know Sri Ram had 3 brothers, Bharath, Lakshman & Shatrughan. His brothers were really dedicated to him, gave him respect and loved him than them. Though this nature is seen nowadays in every sister and brother but no one can beat the amount of service they did to him, especially Lakshman. Not only Lakshman but also Bharat & Shatrughan did a lot and sacriced too*. Bharat too was in vanvaas and denied being king for 14 years and didn’t talk to his very own mother Kaikeyi. Shatrughan ruled ayodhya though it was against the dharm but did it just fir his brothers.
Now, focusing on Lakshman he was a perfect brother, motivator, helper, optimistic, and obviously great. This is one of the rare story of Sumitra & Lakshman’s conversation before leaving to Vanvaas. Sumitra said, ” I was waiting to see you in this costume Lakshman. I gave birth to you and Shatrughan so that you both can do service to Ram & Bharat. Finally its happening. Promise me that for this 14 years you will forgot Me and your father. Your father will be Ram and your mother will be sita. ” Lakshman being so happy always kept his promise.
How sweet. Is it not?
1) He was the only one who left his wife just after a short period of time after his marriage just to do service to bhaiyaa- Bhabhi.
2) He didn’t sleep for 14 years. But nowadays young brothers and sisters sleep earlier and its so hard to find brother like Lakshman.
3) He sacrificed his life by interrupting rama and yama’s conversation just to save Ayodhya without even thinking about urmila 🙁
Ram ( Vishnu ) himself chosen Lakshman as his sevak though Lakshman too was Vishnu’s avatar just to define that there is no such person in this world who can sacrifice anything for him.
IT IS CLEAR THAT GOD IS WANTING US TO BE LIKE ONE OF HIS BROTHERS, AS IT IS THE ONLY way of reaching him _/\_
