Question
Dear Brother William

In the Holy Ramayana epic, we observe
that Lord Rama, incarnation of Lord Vishnu
leaves his wife Seeta after his Victory over Ravana. Victory of good over Evil.

Do you feel It was a mistake in part of Lord Rama in leaving his wife?.

Thanks & regards
Prashant s akerkar

Answer
Dear Mr. Akerkar,

Thank you for your question.

What Bhagavan does is by definition Dharma. Therefore, it is our challenge to understand how the painful action Rama took supported Dharma and furthered His Divine Play.

Best wishes,

Brother William
