Welcome to kasarabada.org !
Happy Pongal to all our readers !
This week the addition is the revised editions of Bhagavadgita Chapter 3 and Chapter 4. You may wonder what is the revision about . As we progressed through the various chapters , there were new thoughts of presentation which appealed to us. The primary thought was to bring in more clarity as the transition of concepts flow through the chapters. We hope the additions appeal to our readers
Last week we started on our favorite Upanishad - namely Kathopanishad in Telugu.
When we started the page for " Athato Brahma Jignyasa" we were meandering along like we do on the shore of an ocean talking about Vedas or Mahavakyas etc !
We were tempted to take one Upanishad in its entirety. Then we came across an on stage musical performance of 'Kathopanishad'.
Then we started on Kathopanishad which has gone through two iterations . Presenting the same in Telugu will virtually be a third iteration. Apart from the commentary on each Valli , the Telugu page also will have the slokas too unlike in the English versions. In this week edition we have the commentary on Valli 1 and Slokas of Valli 1. Hope this increases the interest of our reader
Gita Jayanti is celebrated last weekend.
We had our own celebration of Gita Jayanti , with the addition of Chapter 18 of Bhagavadgita. It is the culmination of an effort that started exactly 18 months ago. We did not start with a great planning on what we might accomplish except for setting a goal of one chapter every month. Our thought was to read the slokas and glean what we might based on the import of words constituting the slokas. We are delighted with we went through. This was simultaneously presented in English and Telugu. The Telugu version was always ahead by two weeks. Our thoughts on this project are shared on one more thing
We also have a new announcement on our Trust pages.
That is about the four scholarships offered through Athato Foundation at the Gayathri Vidya Parishad(GVP) Engineering college in Visakhapatnam in AP( India).
Happy reading !
