Ramayan Wars: The Ocean Leap is based on Sundarkand - a chapter in Ramayan that
tells story of Hanuman crossing the ocean.
The Ramayan is the story of the epic battle between the forces of light and the
forces of darkness and ignorance. The heroes, embodying truth and goodness, fight
against the dark forces of the demon race, known asRakshasas. These demons are powerful,
war-like and horrifying creatures bent upon enslaving the world for their own power
and enjoyment. Our heroes—Ram, Lakshman and Hanuman—are determined to halt the expansion
of the dark forces and preserve truth, wisdom, freedom and wholeness of life throughout
the world. Although they prefer not to wage war, our heroes know they must conquer
or destroy these demons to achieve their goal and bring lasting peace to the universe.
Going back in history, the ancient stories told of a time when there were two powerful
races of beings—the Devas and the Asuras. The Devas were demi-gods who upheld the
creative forces in nature. The Asuras, dark and more gruesome in appearance, upheld
the destructive forces. Even though these two races were actually cousins, they
were constantly battling each other. Through their cosmic conflict, the Devas and
Asurasdid manage to keep the evolution of life moving along because a balance was
maintained between their creative and destructive forces. From time to time, the
destructive forces of the Asuras and demons would grow too strong and threaten to
overtake life on Earth and the entire universe. Now was such a time. Ravana, the
ten-headed king of the demons, had won great boons making him invincible in battle,
and now he wished to take complete control of the universe for his own glory and
power. Yet even though Ravana was a demon, his own father was the great sage Vishvaras,
and his half-brother was Kubera, Lord of Wealth.
- Ramayan as a Spiritual Journey
The Ramayan is both a heroic quest and a deeper spiritual journey. From the outer
level, Ram is on a quest to recover his beautiful wife Sita, and ultimately to purify
the world of the stress and negativity of the demons. On an inner level, Ram's journey
reveals the unfolding of wholeness, of enlightenment in the consciousness of the
world. As we follow in Ram's footsteps, we also find ourselves on a personal journey
to uncover the truth of life, the truth of ourselves-- our spiritual journey within.
This is one of the secrets of the Ramayan. It can become a “map” for a journey into
our own soul. The impulses of the Ramayan are actually structures of our own consciousness,
our own Self. At this deepest level, all the characters of the Ramayan can be seen
as aspects of our own nature, playing out all of their possibilities and tendencies.
Like Ram, we encounter many challenges in our spiritual journey.
Sometimes we struggle against these challenges and they may seem like “demons” blocking
our path. But even these seemingly negative energies can spur us on to purify us
of our limitations, expanding our nature and our capabilities to become bigger,
more whole human beings.
These demons can be seen as negative tendencies of our own mind-- lust, greed, anger,
pride, attachment and covetousness. The positive forces of the mind—our heroes within—help
us transcend or go beyond our limitations by becoming more established in our true
inner nature. When we are established in our big Self, these demons seem small in
comparison and are easily defeated...
