I think one of the most famous mythological story in the Hindu faith. Found it really interesting to read it Aba.

Re: NOt really, but I started learning again after I lost interest a decade ago

Bahut achcha kaha aapne. Since you pronounce 'v' with a 'b' sound as in dhanyabad, I take it you are a Bengali. Prabhu Yeshu ka aashirwaad hi toh sab kuch hai is dining mein.

Re: Hanumanji ki jai; Aur aap ki jai ho: great info.Never-ending details like -

Good girl UKUSA ki bhi jai ho. Do you speak Hindi? Quite likely, I suppose. Hanuman was the Bhakta par-excellence. I will sometime devote a post on Hanuman, but I am not so thorough with him. Bhagavad Gita, yes, if you so like. The real-life teachings are my most faves on which I meditate and had once written my own version on the first nine chapters, there being 18 of them. I so loved your comments on Ravana, a worthy antagonist to Rama, that made Rama achieve what he did. Many thnx, too.

Hanumanji ki jai; Aur aap ki jai ho: great info.Never-ending details like -

life itself, one decision and connection, becomes a labyrithian relationship with people and events! You may have left Hanuman for another post. He was always the most fascinating & purest worshipper (devotee/bhaktha) to me as a child: total devotion to Rama & Sita. He reached Lanka first, before Rama reached his kidnapped wife, Sita. And supplemented Sita's own purity and rejection of every advance from the demon-king Ravana - as his prisoner to boot - Hanuman came in time to prevent Ravana using violence. To his credit, Ravana used his charms & powers, not rape to get his way with other men's wives, or chaste women. He comes down in tradition as a wise king of Sri Lanka, but for that fatal flaw (I was told that his brother Kumbakarna was the glutton; Ravana was not so much greedy as full of lust). I also like the many connotations you gave of Ravana, including "south." ShalomShalom bhaisahib

Re: Re Aba

And it is with appreciation and gratitude that we read them, and learn, and reflect. So beautifully stated.

Re: Pre

I thank you dear Presta for your reading the tale so engrossed. Your comment is a pointer to that. Ancient cultures, the Hindus, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans aside, it is humanity which can separate the good from the bad. From evil we have devil and god from good. The tales, however, are so powerful that they elevate or shame us, but do play storms with our emotions, cathartic at times, or not. I love the art of story-telling and the moral hid behind them in subtly exquisite manner. I gather these nuggets of the legends and try bring these to you all to digest. It is an exercise but I enjoy. Your appreciations are my encouragements. Thank you ever so much, again.

Aba

Wow! That's a lot to digest for the Western mind but fascinating. The ten heads could also signify ten times the intelligence, which I believe you touched upon. But in today's world he would be a what we call a player; a womanizer, or much worse. It seems curses, or stories of curses, are rampant in many societies. Certainly they are not new to my own. How interesting that worldwide, morals and accepotable moral character seem to have a common denominator, a one-size-fits-most compass! lol! No matter which god, which religion, or even no religion, humanity can sense the good from the not so good. And one wonders, why? Good points, and great telling. It is all new to me, so thank you, dear Aba.
