Vijayadasami greetings !!

Greetings for Vijaya Dasami !

Vijaya Dasami is on 14th October 2013 since we do not synch our dates with puja dates, our greetings are a couple of days ahead of the event !!

There are several stories on Vijayadasami ! The most famous being the story of Ramlila or killing of Ravana . The last act of Ramayana is the coronation of SriRama. In fact it is the last chapter of Yuddha kanda. We have added SriRama Pattabhisheka ghatta or SriRama's coronation for reading pleasure !! This extract follows the Gita Press edition of Ramayana. This is added as usual in Sanskrit and Telugu. We have also added this in Kannada keeping in mind that a good fifteen percent of the visitors are from Karnataka !

The large parts of India also celebrate Vijayadasami as the culmination of nine days of Duragapuja !. For them and many others reading Durga Saptasati is a form of celebration ! These nine days are also treated as prayer for Sakthi. For extolling Sakthi there is nothing more exhilarating than reading Sankaracharya's Saundaryalahari !!. Every sloka of Saundaryalahari is a mantra with its own Yantra ! Reading any sloka has its benefits. We provided a page for the first sloka in Saundaryalahari with its meaning !!

This week Sundarakanda moves to Chapter 66 . This chapter is virtually the first occasion we hear the voice of SriRama in a substantial way. In chapter 65 we barely hear a question from SriRama and Hanuman takes over with his reply. Even in Chapter 67 and Chapter 68 we will only get to hear the voice of Hanuman in his response to Rama's queries !! In Chapter 66 for the first time we hear Rama baring his heart about missing Sita on the Prasravana mountain !!. In this chapter we have reproduced almost all the slokas !

A recollection of the kinds of beginnings that happen during these ten days is the story of this week's one more thing !!

This week's Chapter 66 also means that in two more weeks we are completing our Sundarakanda Yagnya !!

Recently there was a query on the archives of kasarabada.org ! The structure is simple. Each of the main pages namely (i) Valmiki Ramayanam (ii) Bhagavatam (iii) Athato brahma jignyasa ( iv) one more thing! carry the links for archives in their domain directly on their pages !!. The archives for the home page are provided with a link on the main page

Happy reading !!

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 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 65 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 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

In effect to have a look at what is available from the earlier issues you only need to visit the four pages of Ramayanam , Bhagavatam , one more thing. and Athato Brahma Jignyasaa. Each page of these banner pages carry the list of all earlier articles .
