Ramayana isn’t a Myth, says the studies
Though the most part of the population in India belongs to Hinduism, though most of them grow up listening to the epics and stories of Gods and Yugas, there are still questions among the generations regarding the existence of a lot of characters from the epics. Lord Rama isn’t an exception to it. People still debate if his existence is a real or he is just a mythological character for the stories of Valmiki. The recent studies shows he is real. Have a look at these.
Valmiki, the author of Ramayana has mentioned 182 different kinds of plants in his epic and recently a couple of botanists from CPR Environmental Education Centre, Chennai has released a report where they’ve mentioned that they actually can confirm the existence of all those geographical elements including Flora and Fauna. They had to track down the route of Rama, Sita and Lakshman starting from Ayodhaya into the North and South and found the species of the plants.
A lot of archeologists support Valmiki’s observations and narrations in Ramayana and there are still a lot of geographical proofs to do so. Valmiki mentioned there are many wild animals in the Dankaranya Forests and the trio took a lot of cautions before they enter. In fact there are no lions there now as they all had been killed by poachers but the pre historic paintings in Bhimbetka Rock Shelters clearly shows the existence of lions and tigers.
Chitrakuta, Dandakaranya are the places that are mentioned in the epic and in modern times they are spread across the states Madhya Pradesh, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. The various kinds of Animal and Bird Species of these regions were mentioned by Valmiki in Ramayana such as Hamsa (Swan), Mayura (Peacock), Karandava (Coot), Sarasa (Crane), and Kraunca (Pond Heron). The studies proves that these species are still visible in these areas even today.
According to Valmiki’s narration, Lord Rama explains about the significance of plants and trees to Sita and Lakshmana that they came across in different locations during their journey. According to the Botanists, even today we have Sthala Vrikshas in every spiritual places and those trees and plants are worshipped equal to gods in respective locations. Some of them say that Ramayana is not just a story but is a compete documentary.
There are Lord Hanuma’s Foot prints in Lepakshi which are still present. That was the place where Hanuman met Jatayu and that is where Lord Rama attain Moksha to Jatayu uttering the words ‘Le Pakshi’ and that’s how the place was named after that incident.
There are documented proofs for the existence of ‘Rama Sethu’, the stone bridge that still exist underwater.
Valmiki carved the whole epic into 23000 Slokas and 7 Kandas. The wonder is whatever he mentioned in his composition is absolutely accurate along with the topography, geography and ecology facts. Talking monkeys, and flying chariots has their own explanations too. So, Ramayana isn’t a Myth. Believe it or not. It’s true and did happen.
