End of Lakshman is mentioned in the Padma Purana. One day an old saint came to Sri Ram and asked him for a private audience. Bhagavan Sri Ram directed Lakshman to guard the door of the room and said that if anyone entered the room during the conversation he will be put to death. The old saint was Kala Deva, or Time, and He appeared to remind Sri Ram that the objectives of Sri Ram’s appearance on earth were completed and it was time for him return to Vaikunta.

Ekadashi Fasting and Mahatma Gandhi

Ekadasi fasting is observed by Hindus on the eleventh day of a lunar fortnight. Mahatma Gandhi belonged to a Vaishnavite family which observed the fasting dedicated to Lord Vishnu scrupulously. Gandhiji too as a boy joined in the Ekadasi fasting. While in South African and experimenting in dietetics, Gandhiji adopted an exclusively fruit diet and observed a complete fast on Ekadashi. The fasting was more in the nature of an exercise in self-restraint. He wrote in his autobiography, ‘The Story of My Experiments with Truth’, that passion in man is generally co-existent with a hankering after the pleasures of the palate and so it was with him.

Expansion of our spiritual dimension takes place not only through the exercise of intellect but also through purifying, training and refining the mind. Self-realization is the goal of human life.

Ignorance and fear are the two main impediments in the path of self realization. They can be overcome only through pr
