rama in gurukul

King Dashratha was immersed in the love of his four sons and soon under his loving gaze the boys grew into young teenagers, on the threshold of youth.

King Dashratha called Sage Vashishtha to perform the thread ceremony or Yagnopavita Samskara for the four boys. Then they were sent with the guru to his Gurukul for their education. The three mothers were extremely upset on their departure but then this was necessary step to mould them in harsher conditions than what prevailed in the palace.

In the Gurukul, along with his three brothers, Rama learnt about Religion, Duty, Polity and Archery. In the Gurukul system of learning it did not matter if you were the son of a King or an ordinary man, everyone stayed together with the same privileges. Every day he worshiped Lord Shiva. In a few years he became well versed in the scriptures including the Vedas and other subjects taught at the Gurukul.
