There is still a constitutional form of Ram Rajya in Thailand. There the descendant of Lord Rama’s younger son Kush is ruling the emperor “Bhumibal Atulya Tej”, who is called the ninth Rama.
Brief History of Lord Rama Valmiki Ramayana is a historical text as well as being a religious text, because Maharishi Valmiki was a contemporary of Rama, in the Balkand section 70, 71 and 73 of the Ramayana, there is a description of the marriage of Rama and his three brothers, which is a summary.
The king of Mithila was Sirdhwaja, also known as Videha, his wife’s name was Sunetra (Sunayana), who had a daughter, Sita, who was married to Rama. King Janak had a brother named Kushadhwaj. His capital was Sankasya Nagar, which was on the banks of the river Ikshumati. He married his daughter Urmila to Lakshmana, Mandvi to Bharata, and Shrutikiti to Shatrughan.
According to Keshav Das’s “Ramachandrika”-page 354 (Prakash Samvat 1715), Lava and Kush, sons of Rama and Sita, Angad and Chandraketu, sons of Lakshmana and Urmila, Pushkar and Taksha, sons of Shatrughna and Shrutikirti, sons of Bharata and Mandavi, Subahu And there were hostilities.
During the time of Lord Rama, the division of the states took place in this way
Lavpur (Lahore) in the west, Kush to Kushavati in the east, Takshashila to Taksha, Angad Nagar to Angad, Chandraketu to Chandravati. Kush spread his kingdom towards the east and married a Nag dynasty girl. The kings of Thailand are descendants of the same Kush. This dynasty is called the “Chakri dynasty. Since Rama is considered an incarnation of Vishnu, and Vishnu has a cycle of weapons, therefore every king of the Log Chakri dynasty of Thailand is given the title of “Rama”. By giving the number along with the name, just like now Ram (9th) is the king whose name is “Bhoomibal Incredible Bright”.
Thailand’s Ayodhya People call the capital of Thailand Bangkok in English, because its official name is so big that it is considered to be the biggest name in the world. Its name is made up of Sanskrit words, the full name in Devanagari script is as follows –
“Krung Dev Mahanagar Amar Ratna Kosindra Mahindrayudhya Maha Tilak Bhava Navratna Rajdhani Puri Ramya Uttam Raj Navasthan Mahasthan Amar Vimana Avatar situated in Shakradtiya Vishnu Karma fame”
A total of 163 letters have been used in this full name in the Thai language. There is another feature of this name. It is not spoken but sung. Some people also call it “Mahendra Ayodhya” for ease, i.e. the great Ayodhya built by Indra. All the Rams (Kings) of Thailand have lived in this Ayodhya.
Real Rama Rajya in Thailand Despite being Buddhist, the people of Thailand consider their king to be an incarnation of Vishnu, being a descendant of Rama, therefore, there is a kind of Rama kingdom in Thailand. The king there is believed to be a descendant of Lord Shri Ram, constitutional democracy established in Thailand in 1932
It is the position of the descendants of Lord Rama that they can never be brought under controversy or criticism in private or in public, they are revered. In front of members of the Thai royal family, the Thai public cannot stand upright to pay their respects, but they have to bow down. One of their three daughters is considered an expert in Hinduism.
Thailand’s national text Ramayana Although Theravada Buddhists are the majority in Thailand, the national text there is the Ramayana. Which is called “Ram-kien” in Thai language. Which means Ram-Kirti, which is based on Valmiki Ramayana. The original copy of this text was destroyed in 1767, due to which the Chakri king I Rama (1736–1809), rewritten it with his own memory. The Ramayana is declared a national text in Thailand.
In Thailand, it is considered a religious act to watch plays and puppets based on Ram Kien. The main characters’ names are as follows-
Rama (Rama), 2 Luck (Lakshmana), 3 Pali (Bali), 4 Sukripa (Sugriva), 5 Onkot (Angad), 6 Khompoon (Jambavant), 7 Bipek (Vibhishana), 8 Totas Kan (Dashkantha) Ravana, 9 Sadayu (Jatayu), 10 Supana Macha (Shurpanakha), 11 Marit (Marich), 12 Indrachit (Indrajit) Meghnad, 13 Fr Pai (Vayudev), etc. There is also the name of Hanuman’s daughter and Vibhishana’s wife in Thai Ram Keen, which the people here do not know.
Garuda, the national symbol of Thailand Garuda is a large bird, which is almost extinct. In English it is called the brahminy kite, its scientific name is “Haliastur indus”. French ornithologist Mathurin Jacques Brisson first sighted it in 1760, and named it Falco indus, after seeing an eagle in the mountains of the city of Pondicherry in southern India. This proves that Garuda is not an imaginary bird. That is why in Indian mythological texts, Garuda is considered as the vehicle of Vishnu. Since Rama is an incarnation of Vishnu, and is a descendant of King Rama of Thailand, and has unwavering faith in Hinduism even though he is a Buddhist, he has declared “Garuda” as the national symbol. Even in front of the Thai parliament there is an eagle.
Suvarnabhumi Airport We consider this as the weakness of Hindus or misfortune, because despite being a Hindu majority country, many cities of the country are named after Muslim invaders or emperors. Here so that the names of the main roads of the capital Delhi are beyond the names of the Mughal rulers like Humayun. Road, Akbar Row, Aurangzeb Road etc. In contrast, the airport of the capital of Thailand is named Suvarna Bhoomi. It is the second largest airport in the world by size. Its area is 563,000 square meters. Inside its reception hall, there is a scene of ocean churning. According to the legend, the gods and father-in-law churned the ocean to extract the nectar. For this, the serpent Vasuki was used for the rope, the Meru mountain was used for the bath. There was Vishnu in the form of Kachhapa to keep him stable. Anyone who visits the hall of this airport gets mesmerized by the sight of this sight.
