Welcome to kasarabada.org

Dasama skandha of Bhagavatam moves this week into chapter 86 covering Subhadra kalyanam.

Dasama skandha being the complete story of Krishna one may expect a more detailed treatment of Krishna's sisters's kidnapping and marriage. In fact though the whole story is narrated in twelve slokas only. There after it continues with a story of two of Krishna's disciples Srutadeva and King of Mithila . In the Bhagavatam itself the chapter 86 is named as " srutadeva anugraho naama Shadaseetitamodhyaayah".

An earlier posting ( mail announcement ) confused the Subhadrakalyanam with Sasirekhaparinayam , Sasirekha parinayam is Mayabazaar. Thanks to an alert reader ( L kotcherlakota) this was corrected . As for the detailed story of Subhadra Kalyam one may have to look into one of the eighteen Puraanaas !! We will talk about these eighteen Puraanaas some other time !!!

The story of Dasamanyaya talked about the ten men trying to cross a tumultuous swift flowing swirling river . That is a symbolic reference to the vedantic search . This issue also carries an elaboration on what is the Vedantic enquiry about. Vedantic enquiry is about the nature of relationship between Paramatma(the ultimate being) , Jeevaatma and Jagat ( universe). The various schools of Advaita ( only one with no second), Dvaita ( the two) , Vishishtadvaita are all based on the trio of Vedas , Brahma sutras and Bhagavadgita.

The story, "dasamanyaya" rings a bell for most people familiar with the story of Paramanndayya sishyulu - the disciples of a Swami Paramanandayya !! It is presented under one more thing

The information on a Trust in the name of a person dear to Kasarabadas namely Prof Bhavaraju Sarveswara Rao who scaled Academic and Professional heights. A profile of Prof Bhavaraju Sarveswara Rao is also added for information. This information is available at the links indicated above and the same are also carried under Trust
