Searching for Him who is everywhere
Lord Rama (or Lord Krishna) exists in every atom of India, wise men say. Stones come to life when touched by Rama as was the case with Ahalya and rocks begin floating when inscribed with Rama's name as in the Ramasethu.
We live in a nation where everyday life begins with greeting one another ‘Jai Ram ji ki’ or simply ‘Ram Ram’ and one finds solace at the end of life with ‘Ram naam sat hai’.
Life goes on by eating veggies like Ramtori or fruits like Sitaphal in cities like Rampur in Uttar Pradesh, Ramnagar in Uttarakhand or Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu.
In such a nation, I began searching for Rama (and Krishna), not the one of belief but the historical one. And my search took me beyond the warrior class (Kshtriyas) to which Rama (and Krishna) belonged, beyond the religion of Hinduism and beyond the confines of the Indian state.
No wonder, the ‘Vishnu Sahasranam’ declares the name of Lord Rama to be equal to the 1,000 names of Lord Vishnu: "Sahasranaam tat-tulyam Rama-naam varaanane".
