The Lord has come as Ramachandra to save His devotees and to exhibit His wonderful pastimes. Ravana is compared to lust personified because he was completely controlled by his lust. We should be careful. We don’t want to be like Ravana, controlled by our material desires or lust, rather we want to engage ourselves as the eternal servitors of Lord Krsna.
