Sitting on a hillside, Shri Rama and Lakshmana soak in the beauty of the rainy season. Rama draws many parallels between nature and human nature. For instance, the clear sky reminds Him of a pure soul, devoid of worldly desires. The imagery of nature helps Him unravel His thoughts on dharma, jnana, bhakti and niti.
Swami Tejomayananda clubs his commentary on Kishkindha-kanda with Purajana-gita from Uttara-kanda, which is Shri Rama’s address after His coronation, very much like the Presidential address on the eve of the Republic Day.
Swami Tejomayanandaji’s commentary is lucid and lively.
