Only the other day there was a query from one of my dear cousins on why Dasama Skandha and that was an interesting question. The same thought was elaborated on the Bhagavatam page . This week we move on to chapter 90 the last chapter of Dasama Skandha. This brings to a close our attempt to bring a chapter by chapter presentation of Dasama Skandha in Bhagavatam. (This excluded the chapter 87 on Vedanta)

Under one more thing there is a story on "Devadatta" it is a name referred to in the polemics of Hindu Philosophy to establish a point !! It is a must read !!

That our philosophies carry a very logical structure in establiashing their tenets must be news to many ( atleast to us surely !). It is assumed by most that what was said in those philosophies was said authoritatively on a take it or leave it basis. No !! In actual practice they went to great lengths to establish their points!. There are mainly six systems of Hindu philosophy apart from the two Nastik Philosphies of Buddha and Jaina. All of them trying to establish primacy of their philosophy and win the minds of people. They always stuck to defining what is the subject , object , sources of knowledge and the methods of validation of such knowledge !! . It seems amazing that they went to such great lengths to be logical.

What is on the kasarabada.org?

For the new visitors we thought of adding a few lines on navigation , so that they may know what is available on Kasarabada.org !

We now have 89 chapters of Dasama Skandha of Bhagavatam. All these chapters ( stories on krishna) are listed by name and are available on a link on the Bhagavatam page.

We have complete bouquet of articles on Ramayana Role models from Ramayana Srirama , Sita , Hanuman , Jataayu , Sabari , Bharata , Lakshmana. Apart from these there were some special articles namely The Message of Ramayana , Going to the Forests and about Hanuman in "In the thick of the Battle " . Along the same lines are the earlier articles in praise of Hunuman 1 , Hanuman 2 and Valmiki Sundarakanda . Added to this bouquet is the Sundarakanda as a Telugu poem by Pandit Vijayraghavrao. We have also added some downloads specifically for the Sankshipta Sundarakanda ( with Sanskrit slokas) reproduced in different language scripts namely Sanskrit , Telugu , Kannada and Malayalam . There is also a Telugu Sundarakanda Katha for those interested in reading the same as prose story !!,.

One more thing page lists all the earlier stories on its page

To see what is available from the earlier issues you only need to visit the three pages of Ramayanam , Bhagavatam and one more thing. Each page of these banner pages carry the list of all earlier articles . The earlier articles on "one more thing" are also listed on the home page.
