A question to Hindus and readers of the Ramayana: How do you reconcile Rama's actions, specifically his treatment of Sita, unchivalrous killing of Vali and mutilation of Surpankha with the popular depiction of him as the ideal man? I've been meditating of the Ramayana for the past two weeks or so. It seems to me that right after he is proclaimed to be the ideal man by Narada (at least in Valmiki's Ramayana), the rest of the epic actually goes on to say why he was not. Any thoughts on this?
