Welcome to Kasarabada.org

This week we are covering 39th Chapter of Sundarakanda . We are continuing the format of separate pages for Chapter 39 - Slokas in Telugu and and Chapter 39- slokas in Sanskrit with English Translation.

We return to Kathopanishad under Athato Brahma Jignyasa. This is titled 'Kathopanishad in Simple words' . Essentially we looked at all important Sanskrit lines in Kathopanishad , and collated them . While threading through these sanskrit lines the full story of Kathopanishad comes through. This comes in four parts. The first part covers Valli 1 and Valli 2 of chapter 1. We called this "Kathopanishad in Simple words". For an interested beginner this should make it easy . No this is not "Kathopanishad for Dummies" !! . The Athato page also carries links to interesting notes on Kathopanishad !!

One more thing carries the thoughts about Gurus and the lessons , which is a continuation of Uddhava Gita's Avadhuta story of 24 Gurus !

The extracts of an old book( 1899) by an Oxford Scholar on the History of Sanskrit Literature , appeared earlier.

under "one more thing" !!

Athato completes the Kathopanishad 2nd Adhyaya Part 3 or valli 6 We had started the Kathopanishad because it is exciting. It is a dialog on death. Also it is Yama himself teaching !! . So far we have covered Nachiketa's boon in Valli 1, Yama's teaching on good and pleasant as well as the word “om” in Valli 2, Knowledge of Atman in Valli2 (Sloka 21-25) and Valli 3 (Sloka 1-9). Valli 4 went through again nature of Self leading to perception and attainment of Unity. Valli 5 covered more of the nature of inner soul. Then we also added some more notes " good vs pleasant " , "Blind leading Blind" from Kathopanishad

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 now 39 chapters of Sundarakanda and also complete bouquet of articles on Ramayana. These articles include "Role models from Ramayana" namely 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 a prose story !!,.

One more thing is a page where we get articles which could be on anything , informative and educative handled with a light heart and a touch of contemporary realities. The page lists all the earlier stories on its page

The last new column is Athato Brahma Jignyasaa . This page is focused on Indian Philosophy /Darsanas. This has been started a few months ago and all its earlier issues are listed on its page
