RAMA DARBAR or RAMA PARIVAR is shown with multiple deities: Shri Rama, Shri Laxman, Shri Sita Jee, and Shri Hanuman ji. In some depictions Bharat and Shatrughna, the other two brothers of Rama, are also shown. Almost all temples of Rama have RAMA DARBAR.
Significance. The entire Rama Darbar is a symbolic representation of YOU, your own complete self. You have several parts of yourself: the body, the mind, the intelligence and the soul. The first three are easily identifiable by all. The last one, the soul-the divine spark in us- can be easily inferred. It is the soul that keeps the body, mind and intellect functioning and held together.
Hindus worship one supreme reality (God) but in many forms, or no form, with various attributes of these forms. These deities represent various aspects of God's powers and qualities etc. A better understanding of these forms, decorations on them, things held by them in their hands, things around them, their vehicles etc. will allow us to connect better with these deities, and help us advance in our goals. Ultimately, when thoroughly understood, we realize that these are the powers and qualities hidden in our own self, of our own real self (Atman). By proper control, training and practice of Prana, mind, body and intelligence we discover our own self.
So, when the body, mind and intellect are totally in contact with and surrendered to the soul, and allow the soul to direct their functions, our life becomes “ayodhya”, a place without any conflict or tension. Joy, harmony, knowledge and perfection are established in our lives since that are the nature of soul.
So next time you see a temple of Rama Darbar, remind yourself that it is YOU who is represented in those images.
