Evoking Rama in others
Gurjas Chahal awakens to the truth that cultivating goodness in oneself can have a positive and transformational effect on others
Gurjas Chahal

I came across a very nice talk on social media, emphasising the wonderful quote: “The power to evoke Ravan or Ram in the other person lies within us.” A beautiful thought and a beautiful truth, I thought. This talk received various favourable comments and likes. The interviewer’s story supporting the quote caught my attention. It was fairly long but added the required weight to the quote’s import. He narrated that one day, he chanted the mantra ‘I am love’ throughout the day and went to sleep meditating on this mantra. When he woke up around 2.30 a.m. the next day, the mantra ‘I am love’ came automatically to his lips. And courtesy such thoughts, he had a wonderful day at the office, where he found himself talking to everyone with lots of love. The staff was amazed to see the complete turnaround in him, for he was far different from his erstwhile image of an angry boss.

Our thoughts can change others

The interviewee linked this experience with the quote mentioned above, by explaining that if our thoughts can change ourselves, they surely hold power to change others. By chanting the mantra, ‘I am love,’ the person became love the next day and this brought about a change in his behaviour towards others and vis-à-vis their perception of him.
