Welcome to kasarabada.org !

This week we have added the twelfth and thirteenth Sargas of Sundarakanda.

The thirteenth Sarga is about Hanuman's dilemma .He has searched everywhere and could not locate Sita. He is at a loss on what to do . Hanuman's mood swings are wild. He imagines the worst possible scenario where in his returning to Kishkindha empty handed may result in the complete destruction of the Ikshwaku and Vanara families and he even contemplated immolation. But good sense tells him by living one can achieve more. Then he renews his efforts and enters Ashoka Grove in search of Sita . The link page for this update is Sundarakanda Slokas with Prose order and Translation

We also have the thirteenth Sarga summaries in English and Sanskrit. Similar links are available on the main link page

The prose order with meanings in English are presented as usual in four languages. The Sanskrit script is provided in Devanagari, Telugu Kannada and Gujarati. While we read through the Devanagari ,Kannada and Telugu text , the Gujarati script was taken as is. Since all of this is Transliteration and transliteration was checked for three languages it was taken as is without a secondary reading in the case of Gujarati due to lack of resources.

Earlier 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

Earlier we completed Devimahatmyam or Sapta Sati Parayana Sanskrit Slokas in Devanagari , Telugu and Kannada

A few weeks ago we highlighted our usual review of the visitors to the site. We are happy with the readership.

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 !
