Maryada means the finest and noblest traditions of that period. And ‘traditions’ develop within a human society, and as such Maryada is a part of human society and have nothing to do with God or Godliness. One more thing, person who follows ALL the Maryada of their time will be called MARYADAPURUSH, and certainly NOT Maryada Purushottam.
The first thing we have to understand is that emotional answers are NO ANSWERS. Those answers are there to DECEIVE the masses. Understandably the persons who are giving such answers are exploiters, but why are we, as members of Hindu Society getting exploited?
Ramayan is history of Treta Yug and none of the characters had had supernatural powers. Once we reaffirm our faith Dharm Gurus will be forced to accept that Ramayan and Mahabharat are history, and only then the scientific development of that period would reach universities for further research.
Please be informed that you cannot pass jury’s verdict on Maryada Purushottam, without going through lot of evidence, and as such you are requested to open the links of post(s) mentioned here and then decide.
‘Now the big question? Why a Prince, a King, a Kshatriya, broke the existing Maryada by INTERFERING DECISIVELY in a man to man combat?
But persons of royal linage are expected to follow Maryada of their time, then and even today.BREAKING MARYADA, EVEN FOR GREAT REASONS DO NOT GO WELL .
