Kasarabada.org welcomes all !

This week Sundarakanda moves to Chapter 56 .

Chapter 56 is about Hanuman having accomplished what he set out for (Chapter 1 ) then gets ready to fly back to the northern shore of the sea from Lanka. So the journey we started 56 weeks ago around July 2 2012 is also approaching the end. The completion of Sundarakanda will be in the 68th week which will be 12 weeks from now !!

Last few weeks meant lots of action starting with the Hanuman's battle cry ( Jayatyati balo Ramo !!..Chapter 42) Killing of Kinkaras ( Chapter 43), killing of Jambumaali ( Chapter 44), killing of seven minister's sons ( Chapter 45), killing of the five Generals ( Chapter 46) , killing of Ravana's son Aksha ( Chapter 47) , battle of Hanuman and Indrajit ( Chapter 48), Hanuman's advice to Ravana ( chapter 51) , Vibhishana's advice to Ravana ( Chapter 52) , Sita's prayers ( Chapter 53), burning down of city of Lanka( Chapter 54), Hanuman's sorrow and the good tidings ( Chapter 55) .

As always we are intrigued by the lessons for this generation from the classics of the old. That is what we have from Hanuman under one more thing this week . This is about anger management and walking away !! Every body will have their take. This is ours !!

The three chapters of Sundarakanda that are visited more often are Chapter 1 , Chapter 15 and Chapter 42 The Chapter 1 describes Hanuman's leap across the ocean and the chapter 15 describes Hanuman's first glimpse of Sita. These two chapters in fact have associated legends. Considering the traffic generated on these pages these pages have been updated. You can visit the Chapter 15 on Sita darsanam with Sanskrit slokas and Slokas in Telugu . Now It has more slokas. Chapter 42 has Hanuman roar and Jaya Mantram

The regular features as usual continue !!

The Telugu home Page is not getting updated we are still resolving technology issues we will get it going soon !!.

The Kathopanishad in Simple words continues with Part3, as continuation of earlier Part 1 and Part 2 - this goes as part of our Athato Brahma Jignyasa. This week Part 3 completes the Kathopanishad Second Adhyaya with Valli4. The Valli 1 and 2 were part of Part 1 . Part 2 covers the Valli 3 which threads through a few concepts of duality Jivaatma and Paramatma, Brahman the Un-manifested and the manifested , and the two goals namely one of reaching heaven and the other attaining Moksha. . The Athato page also carries links to interesting notes on Kathopanishad !! . Now we have quite a bit of material on Kathopanishad; and it is not completed yet !!

One more thing automatically carries an updated article " Jayamantram- The victory Slogan "!!

With this Ugadi we started a page in Telugu titled - "Subbalakshmigari Kalam loninchi" . There is also a technology change. We are adding language support so that Indian language text van easily be accepted . Readers may see a bit of not so well formatted texts on the Telugu pages. Hopefully this will be resolved.

The extracts of an old book( 1899) by an Oxford Scholar on the History of Sanskrit Literature , appeared earlier under "one more thing" !!
