Sri Laxmana is the very personfication of Death, the highest reality. King Sugreeva, in the ramayana is a representation of the common man, who has lforgotten his eternal duties towards God. He has given up Bhakti and has immersed himself in worldly activities. This is gross neglect of Dharma. It is important that man follows the teachings of the Ramayana and awaken to His pure conscience.
Sri Laxmana verily represents Death. In the form of Sri Sheshanaga, he is the eternal attendant of Sri Narayana in the milk ocean. As Sri Laxmana he is the faithful servitor of our eternal Lord Sri Rama. Understanding Sri Laxmana in the context of the Ramayana is vital towards the understanding of the concept of Death and Time.
