Story of Jaya and Vijaya in Bal Kand of Shri Ramcharitmanas clarifies one reason why Lord Vishnu took Rama symbol.

In the Bal Kand "Youth Episode" of Shri Ramcharitmanas, Lord Shiva clarifies five unique reasons with respect to why Rama manifested on earth in various ages Kalpa (age). Every one of these accounts is examined in detail, with the essential message being that Rama manifested on earth to secure the exemplary who pursue the way of Dharma.

Out of the five reasons, the principal reason expressed by Lord Shiva for the manifestation of Shri Hari as Lord Ram, was the narrative of "Jaya and Vijaya".

Story of Jaya and Vijaya – Reason for Lord Ram's Incarnation


As indicated by a story from Bhagavata Purana, the Four Kumaras, Sanaka, Sanandana, Sanatana, and Sanatkumara who are the manasputras of Brahma (children conceived from the brain or thought intensity of Brahma), visited Vaikuntha, the home Vishnu, to see him. Jaya and Vijaya are the two guardians (Dwarapalaka) of the dwelling place Vishnu, known as Vaikuntha, halted them at the entryway. They likewise tell the Kumaras that Sri Vishnu is resting and that they can't see him now. The maddened Kumaras answered Jaya and Vijaya that Vishnu is accessible for his aficionados whenever, and reviled both the attendants Jaya and Vijaya, that they would need to surrender their heavenliness, be conceived as humans on Earth (bhuloka, or physical plane), and live like typical individuals. Because of the quality of their tapas, the four Kumaras seem, by all accounts, to be unimportant kids, however they are of extraordinary age. Jaya and Vijaya, the guards of the Vaikuntha intrude on the Kumaras at the entryway, believing them to be youngsters.

Vishnu showed up before them, and the guards mentioned Vishnu to lift the scourge of the Kumaras. Vishnu said that the scourge of the Kumaras can't be switched. Rather, he gives Jaya and Vijaya two alternatives. The primary choice is to accept seven births on Earth as an enthusiast of Vishnu, while the second is to accept three births as his foe.

In the wake of carrying out both of these punishments, they can re-achieve their stature at Vaikuntha and be with him for all time. Jaya and Vijaya can't hold up under the idea of avoiding Vishnu for seven lives.

Thus, they decide to be brought into the world multiple times on Earth despite the fact that it would need to be as adversaries of Vishnu.

As Hirakyakasipu and Hiranyaksha in Satya-yuga, as Ravana and Kumbhakarna in the Treta-yuga, and as Shishupala and Dantavakra toward the finish of Dvapara-yuga.

First Life – In the main life, they were conceived as Hiranyakashipu and Hiranyaksha in the Krita Yuga, to Diti (little girl of Daksha Prajapathi) and sage Kashyapa who were slaughtered by Vishnu Varaha symbol (a pig) and Narasimha symbol (a man-lion) in the Satya Yuga.

Second Life – In their subsequent life, they were conceived as Ravana and Kumbhakarna and were killed by Vishnu's Rama symbol in the Treta Yuga.

Third Life – In their third life, they were conceived as Shishupala and Dantavakra who were slaughtered by Vishnu's Krishna symbol in the Dwapara Yuga.

It has been noted by numerous that the qualities of Jaya and Vijaya steadily declined with each resulting birth. Vishnu required one symbol each to execute Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu. Conceived as Rama he had the option to vanquish both Ravana and Kumbhakarna.

In his Krishna symbol the slaughtering of Shishupala and Dantavakra isn't the fundamental concentrate yet more to lessen the 'Bhoobhara" (The weight on mother earth by such a large number of miscreants).
