It is important to understand the language and the words of the Lord as expressed in our Vedic Shastras. Many people feel that the Vedic Shastras are a dogma or a cult that promotes religion with a narrow mindset. The reality is far from it. The words in the Scriptures reflect the genuine concern of the Lord for people who care to be genuine and are ready to follow a life of Truth for the sake of liberation. The Lord does not pass a decree for everyone but is careful in delineating a path for the truly interested beings. When one takes up every word of the Lord, the possibilities of liberation open up, just as the night opens up with the first rays of the sun.
Understanding the position of Lord Rama, is to stand with Truth. It is important for man to make sense of opposing ideologies and viewpoints within the world.

If that art is supoosed to be mastered, one should take pains to understand the character of Lord Rama.
