The Oracle of Rama, is perhaps the greatest Oracle of India, as well as one of the simplest and easiest to use. Like the I Ching, it consists of various verses that one can get to answer one's questions. While the I Ching uses the symbolism of the world of Nature for providing its forecasts. The Oracle of Rama uses the symbolism of Lord Rama, a Divine incarnation, and the Yoga of Devotion (Bhakti Yoga) as its symbolism. It condenses the laws of karma into the story of Rama and his noble deeds. Rama's story, the Ramayana, is one of the great classics of world literature. The importance of The Oracle of Rama is that Rama, its central presiding symbol, is a figure of heroic proportions--a perfect man. His life is an example of perfect action under every difficulty and misfortune, overcoming all the forces of evil and ignorance. As such, his Oracle is very safe and reliable, and provides the most wholesome and trustworthy guidance.
"The Oracle of Rama uses the insights of Tulsidas, one of the greatest seers of the Vedic tradition, to unlock the secrets of the realm of unmanifest intelligence and open up for us all the creative potentials of the universe. The Oracle shows us how we can make karmically appropriate choices so that we can live a life of joy and fulfilment on all levels of our being. Dr. Frawley offers us a beautiful English version of this classic for our everyday use." - Deepak Chopra, MD, Author of the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.
