Everybody has to pass through the adversities of life. It is the nature of pravritti (outward path). There is another aspect to life – nivritti (inward path). A child goes to its mother and says, “I am hungry.” The mother who follows just the outward path says, “Child, go and eat food. Your hunger will be satiated.” This is the pravritti dharma. But the mother who treads the inward path does not merely say so. She would advise the child as to what type of food to eat, when and how to eat too. The mother who follows nivritti path advices you to eat such food which will bestow you with good health. One may have desires, but they should be under limit. They should be based on truth and righteousness. Do not eat whatever you get. Do not speak whatever comes to your mind. Speak only after proper enquiry. The Ramayana teaches the pravritti and nivritti aspects of life in a beautiful manner. There is no morality higher than what is depicted in it. The Ramayana should be the subject of our parayana (worship).
