One example to justify this can be read in Valmiki Ramayana wherein King Dasaratha expresses that his birth star was being encroached by Raahu. This foretells some impending danger to the life of the person (Dasaratha). This prompted Dasaratha to arrange for the transfer of the crown to his son Rama and he announced Coronation the very next day. But the inevitable effect of this encroachment by Raahu happened as seen in the death of Dasaratha and chaos in the transfer of power.
- One is that when a person does a work in the name of service to (kainkaryam) and love (preethi) of God, he or she can overcome any hurdle. The supposed evil of Raahu Kaalam will be nothing.
- Another is that our sages who have narrated the Ithihasas and Puranas and other dharmic matters were not interested in spoon feeding us. They have wanted us to see through and sift the materials and get hold of the facts. In one of the Upanishads it is said that Devas are fond of keeping things as secrets. It is a playful joy to find out those secrets. The purpose of creation itself is described as playful sport. We also derive that joy of a game when we seek through the mysteries. This joy of unraveling the mystery of a small episode in Ramayana is akin to the joy of finding a new planet in the sky!! If we face the ups and downs of life in the same spirit of a sport, we will not incur any papa or punya and overcome the cycle of birth and death,
