1. Rama and Varnasrama-dharma

    They sometimes use “Rama-rajya party,” but without Rama. This is their policy. Where is that Rama? When Lord Ramacandra returned from the forest, His brother, Bharata, was ruling as a saintly person. But as soon as the eldest brother came back, he entreated that “Now You sit down on the throne.” But He first of all tested what kind of people in generally there are in the Ayodhya. So when He understood that all the citizens, they are strictly following the varnasrama-dharma, then He agreed to accept the throne.
