Greetings for Ramanavami


Welcome to March 30, 2012 issue .

Kasarabada.org offers all its readers Greetings for Ramanavami which falls on April 1 2012

Ramanavami is of special interest to us. We are presently running a series on Role models from Ramayana. The fifth such model in the Series is Sabari appearing with this issue. The kasarabada.org started essentially with our thoughts on Sundarakanda . Our First issue carried the down loads of SankshiptaSundarakanda in Telugu , Devanagari ( Sanskrit) as well as a Kannada version and a Malayalam version too ! We also carried the complete Telugu "Sankshipta Sundarakanda " in free verse form from Late Pandit Vijayraghavrao" . The Ramayana page has all the links for interested Readers.

Ramayana continues with the story on Sabari in Ramayana Role Models. This appears under Ramayanam

One more thing starts with a shorter version of Sabari we heard in our childhood. In Ramayana it is a story told by Kabandha an ogre whose arms were severed by Sri Rama and Lakshmana. One more thing also carries the earlier story on Chrvakas . That is about Charvaka school which believes in "Here" and "Now". It is too interesting to be left out so quickly !! .

The Bhagavatam Dasama Skandha continues with the Chapter 83 which is about Krishna's Consorts !. No, not about all the sixteen thousand of them . It is about the Principal Nine consorts. We hear them in their own words how they got married to Lord Krishna. This comes as result of women's talk, with Draupadi asking them a question. You can read this in Bhagavatam Chapter 83.

The Kathopanishad continues in Athato with Valli 2 of Adhyaya On e....

... 'This word is Supreme. Whoever meditates on this word obtains all he desires.This word is the best support. He who knows this support achieves what ever he desires....

Thus starts the teaching of Yama on the word "om" .

As stated the Ramayana Role models is appearing under Ramayanam.Shri Turaga has provided two links ( 1 , 2) for further readings.

Om Tat Sat


Witty Wisdom !
