Welcome to kasarabada.org :

June 22 , 2012

With the 10 1st Issue of Kasarabada.org ... We covered a major mile stone of completion of Dasama Skandha under Bhagavatam page. We have also completed the role models in Ramayan page.

We are now looking at starting a new series under Bhagavatam which could be the continuation into the 11th Skandha. This may allow us to focus on Uddhava Gita which also treated as " The Last message of Lord Krishna". This a 52 week project !.

Under Ramayanam we may start on Sundarakanda with a chapter by chapter Translation, or "Adhyatma Ramayanam". Both may exceed 72 weeks at the minimum.

The Athato continues with articles on Upanishads and related topics.

Although when we started we did not clearly see the way , for the present we see the site focusing on triumvirate ofJnana , Bhakti and Karma yogas through the three columns of "Athato-Brhama-jgnyasa" ; "Bhagavatam" and "Ramayanam" !!

If you have any suggestions for going forward please let us know . Also like Turaga's contribution onRole Models we welcome suggestions and offers from others to contribute !! you can write to us at the mail id below !!


Welcome to 102nd Issue of Kasarabada.org ! There are new stories on "Bhagavatam", "Athato-Brhma-jignyasa", and "One more thing"

In continuation of our articles on Dasamanyaya , The Story of Devadatta , this time we bring a story on the Jar under one more thing . The Jar is one item referred to many times in the polemics of Hindu Philosophy to establish a point !! The making and the breaking of a pot as well as the pot as it is and even the mud contituting the pot form the narrative in vedanta !!

The Bhagavatam revisits the beginnings of Bhagavatam . Like all our classics there is an elaboration on why Bhagavatam in the first place. This comes right in the beginning. It comes out as part of a dialog between Narada and Sage Vyasa in the chapter 3 and 4 of First Skandha. It comes out that after completing what he thought are seminal works for the welfare of people, Veda Vyasa was left feeling discontented or dissatisfied . Sage Narada who came to visit him, tells him that it is because he has not elaborated on the glory of the Supreme being and that he has actually focused more on the four fold activities of Dharma Artha , Kama and Moksha !. Following this advice Vyasa contemplated and completed Bhagavatam which is a Bhakti oriented. Bhagavatam issue carries this story

Under Athato Brahma Jignyasaa- we revert to Katha upanishad with Yama elaborating on Self in the first Valli of second Adhyaya
