India/Bharat Republic day

January 26, 2024.


Welcome to Kasarabada.org.

Jan 26 is the Republic day of India celebrated all over India reminding ourselves of the greatness of our country. Currently India seems to be swept up in a great religious fervor all over the country. Hopefully this fervor ennobles all religious people of all religions, resulting in  universal peace.

This week also marks an important step for us. This week  we are uploading  Slokas of Valmiki Sundarakanda  Sarga 67 , along with the word meanings and commentary in English and Telugu .

In addition we are also uploading  Slokas of the last Sarga of Valmiki Sundarakanda namely    Sarga 68  ,  along with the word meanings and commentary in English and Telugu.

This heralds the completion of the task of elaborating on the word meanings of all the Slokas in the sixty eight Sargas of Valmiki Sundarakanda. Sundarakanda related activity has been going for nearly ten years as a Kasarabada Sundarakanda Project ( elaborated elsewhere on this page).

The concluding process will be in the form of releasing e-Books which will be about book of Slokas ( in multiple languages), book of Slokas with summary meanings in English and Telugu in the traditional form, and books with word meanings and commentary  in Telugu and English, with the usual twist of Sloka text in multiple languages Sanskrit, Telugu, Kannada, Gujarati etc.

    The first of these  eBooks is Slokas of Sankshipta Sundarakanda inTelugu, which were originally published in the form of a book in 1998. The extensive study of Sundarakanda meant that there are Slokas which were commented upon extensively which were not in the original Sankshipta Sundarakanda. We undertook the activity of adding a few more Slokas while maintaining  continuity in the flow of narration. The revised Sankshipta Sundarakanda now has 324 Slokas of the original Valmiki Sundarakanda. 

This week the first set of e- Books of Sankshipta Sundarakanda Slokas in Telugu   and Devanagari  are made availabe for  downloads. 

Happy reading

Kasarabada Sundarakanda Project :

The Kasarabada Sundarakanda Project or Kasarabada Project is as follows:

- Put together a smaller version of Sundarakanda in about 300 Slokas encompassing the entire story of Sundarakanda told in nearly 3000 slokas of Sundarakanda of Valmiki Ramayan.

- The first version of this is to be in Telugu , followed by one with English Translation. This is to be called Sankshipta Sundarakanda

- Create an on line version of Sundarakanda all Slokas of Sundarakanda for daily Parayan. This is to be available in multiple languages starting with Telugu, Kannada, Devanagari and Gujarati

- Create a version of Sundarakanda with all slokas rearranged in a prose order form for students of Sanskrit to discern the meaning very easily. This is also to make the later translation of Sundarakanda easier and also ease the path to a Sanskrit version of Sundarakanda in prose form.

- Create a version of Sundarakanda with English Translation with Sloka text in multiple languages starting with Telugu. This may not be new but this is the kasarabada version

- Create a version of Sundarakanda with Telugu Translation.

- Create a version of complete Telugu Sundarakanda in prose covering the meanings of all Slokas of Sundarakanda in Valmiki Ramayanam.

- Create a version of complete Sundarakanda in English covering the meanings of all Slokas of Sundarakanda in Valmiki Ramayanam.

- Create a version of Sanskrit Sundarakanda in prose form covering all slokas of Sundarakanda in Valmiki Ramayan

- Create a version of Sundarakanda bringing out the inner meaning of Sundarakanda in Telugu and English. This version could be called "Anatarartham" or Tattva Dipika . The main reference would be Tattva Dipika of Sri Bhashyam Appalaacharyulu garu .

The above is the broad scope of the Sundarakanda Project of kasarabada.org. This project has been in the works since 1994 , when we started the first project of making a Samkshipta Sundarakanda .
