    Giving asylum to a person from enemy side. Lord Ram shown the way

    Amidst Ramayana when there was hectic preparations for getting back Sita from the captivity of Ravana in Sri Lanka, Vibhishana, the brother of Ravana approaches Lord Ram along with four Mantris to seek surrender and asylum. While many are against this move but only Hanuman as supported that Vibhishana can be considered for asylum. In this context Ram says that who ever for that matter even if Ravana comes to seek pardon , he would be ready to do so. That was the biggest lesson being taught in Ramayana as to how one must be so humble even to enemies.

    This is true we should be humble with our enemies too, but today's situation is something different. When talking about enemies in our personal life we may easily pardon them if they admit their mistakes and now want to be a friend, but when this situation will arise with another country especially an enemy country, it will not be easy to trust them. The Ramayana is a religious book of Hindus which gives us many more important points for a person to live a respectful life by being a social person. On the other hand, Mahabharat teaches us the value of our rights and fight for them, so what we should do is that we need to understand the situation and then follow their lesson as per the situation. Pardoning others is always a better way to live a happy life but sometimes an act of revenge also becomes a need to stop injustice.

    A person who comes asks for excuse and surrenders himself should be excused. That is one point we understand from the above incident. Another point to be noted is welcoming a person from enemy's camp will be useful for the team as the strong and weak points of the enemy can be known to us. That will help us in making the strategy. Vibhishana really helped Rama by informing where Ramana should be attacked to kill him.
    Even we see this in many manufacturing industries. When a new company comes into production they will try to get key persons from competitor by giving them good salary and perks. That will allow the new company to know the important tips in maintaining quality and productivity.

    Before giving asylum to someone, we should ensure to whom we are giving asylum. Enemies also can send their informers to seek asylum, to get information from the other camp. It happens in politics and business. We should pardon someone, but with utmost care and vigilance.

    That is also an important point Sun. People will come and join and try to pass on the information to their team and generally, these people are spies. But such persons will never tell the secrets of their original team to the team now they joined. That is why people will be very vigilant with such new joining and observe them very carefully and any doubt they will try to dislodge him for their team.

    But in the case of Vibhishana, Lord Hanuman visited his home in Lanka and when entire Island was burning because of Ravana chose to torch Hunuman's tail, the house of Vibhishana never torched and that proves his devotion for Lord Ram.
