Hitherto Unknown Secrets !

ShriRAMA after reining Ayodhya for 13000 years once  visited Agastyashram . [ This is after killing Shambuka ] .

Agastyamuni who is born out of pitcher is known as  Kumbhasambhava  . Immediately rose from his seat on seeing LORD RAAMA and offered his prayers .And after prayers offered one beautiful  MAALA [ garland ] which was clean and crystal clear and very pleasing to the mind –  nirmala amalina malaa . With devotion Agastya muni says ”

HEY RAAM ! This garland has been given to me by KING SHWETA to be offered at your LOTUS feet .

Once while Agastya muni saw a  dead body in the midst of the jungle . After sometime SAGE saw a very bright divine aircraft  descending from the heavens .From the PLANE alighted a Luminous KINGLY personality . The KING in divine heavenly form descended from the PLANE and started eating the flesh of the dead body . Looking at the ghastly sight .. Sage AGASTYA asked OH divine King who are You ? why are you performing this dastardly act . what besieges you to eat a dead mans’ flesh . You do not seem to be a demon or demonic creature either .. and you are descending from heaven so you must have done only good deeds in previous birth as you have reached heaven .. then why this evil has befallen you ?

The KING said ” Oh salutation to you Oh Sage Agastya ! its my good fortune and end of bad karma that I have had a holy sight of divine person like yourselves .. Now my miseries have ended … ! Listen Oh pious Bramhin rishi … I am king Shweta .

I was doing tapasya [ penace ] in this region known as Dandakaranya . This region was ruled by a KIng named DANDA . it was once a beautiful KINGDOM full of palaces and streets . Once Danda was infatuated with the daughter if SHUKRACHARYA . For this Shukracharya the guru of demons cursed him and his kingdom to become a uninhabited dense Forest . [ ie king became daridra for having lusted guru’s daughter  ] and this place came to be known as DANDAKARANYA .

KING Shweta had done many tapasya and conducted many vratas , yagnyas . BUT after completing the VRATAS NIYAMA YAGNYA etc ,, KING did not do nay bramhana BHOJANA .. so all his yagnyas became anannayagnya . Because the yagnyas he did get Swarga  but there he could not  eat any food for himself .. All sort of food abhorred him … He was dissatisfied  even in HEAVEN among apasaras and all sorts of enjoyments but Hunger troubled him a lot and all the food available could not be eaten by him … SO unable to bear hunger He asked BRAMHA as to why this evil had befallen him . BRAMHA devaru said .. as he had not given for Bramhana bhojana and annadana after yagnyas …He will be dissatisfied even though he got heaven for his karma , he  will not be able to eat heavenly food . SO king asked where to seek satisfaction from hunger .. He said his heavenly body still in the DANDAKARANYA and he has no option but to eat his own flesh there to find satisfaction ..

Unable to bear this bad situation .. KING shweta pleaded BRAMH deva to relieve him off his pain .. and give him some remedy for his FOLLY ..

BRAMHA ji  took pity on him and said .. Oh KIng SHWETA .. take this garland .. and give it to SAGE AGASTYA to offer this LORD RAAMA .. THis will relieve you from this evil state .

saying so King Shweta offered with devotion a divine garland to Sage AGASTYA .. and the dead body disappeared .. and again KING Shweta went to heaven peacefully in the divine plane .

SAGE AGASTYA offered the GARLAND to LORD RAAMA narrating this incident.

note – why did BRAMHAji not ask KING shweta to offer garland directly to LORD RAAMA .. ?

ans – KIng’s problem was only to get relieved from the state of hunger .. Offering garland to RAAMA would have resulted in much more punya , which KING was not seeking .and was not eligible either … Thus BRAMHAJI asked KING to give garland to sage AGASTYA and it was Sage AGASTYA who offered GArland to RAAMA and became eligible for complete Punya arising out of such offering …

special point to be noted – OFFERING GARLAND TO LORD RESULTS IN OBTAINING ANNA FOOD [ this is a great secret ] ..

“devaay maalarpaNena analabho bhavatiti paramarahasyam ” – poojakalapalata grantham

Thus while narrating this story SUN set in the west and SO LORD RAAMA spent the night among the sages in the ashram .

NEXT day LORD RAAMA said ” punaste darshanam BHUYAAT ” .. to agastya muni that “We shall meet again .Oh Sage you are the one who cleanse the men off their sins and make them pure ” .. sage burst into tears and said ” Oh RAAM ! by constant remembrance of  lotus feet I HAVE BECOME CLEANSED myself  ! You are the very GOD Oh RAAM ! just by listening to your name , remembering your avataras and singing your praises , even those who have sinned with mahapatakas ie unpardonable sins also get purified cleansed and respected devout ”

LORD RAAMA with a soft smile looking at the SAGE boarded the PUSHPAK VIMANA and reached AYODHYA .. and then asked PUSHPAK to return whenever called for .. Having said that PUSHPAK automatically left for KUBERA’s place . on a autopilot mode .

THEN LORD SRIRAAMA invited BHARAT AND LAKSHMAN to his palace and decided to do a YAGNYA .. LAKSHMAN suggested ASHWAMEDHA YAGNYA ! .

    How DID RAAMA KILL LAXMAN ?

      Dear Sir,
      rama did not kill him actually but ordered him to leave ayodhya….as abandoning ram was equal to death for laxman. laxman then gave up his life at banks of river sarayu. rama had to do this coz he had promised the ascetic (yama in disguise who had come to meet him)that whoever interrupts their meeting will be killed. laxman interrupted to ask rama to attend durvasa muni.

      • yestreday I visited a relatives house alongwih my family .. there I saw a two year boy agitatingly asking his grandfather 75 years that he should play with him , when his grandfather said please give him 15 min as relatives had come .. he said you always avoid me .. seing that grandfather obliged him …
        ———————————————————————————————–

        this incidence is what prompted me to ask this question ..

        Ramarajya was such that prithvi bhuloka was gaining more importance than Bramhaloka Maharloka …bhuloka had more vaibhava than the swarga mahat satya lokas … this made Bramha decide that the importance of satyaloka should be more .this status shoudl be regained vis a vis bhuloka .. so he sent RUDRAdevaru to ask RAAMachnadra to return ..
        Rudradevaru in a form of ascetic visited Raama and Laxman was appointed dwaarapala for important discussion as it is devarahasya ..
        if failed he would be killed was the dictum of RAAMA ..

        NOw Rudradevaru asked Shriraamachandra to return in a true childlike agraha ..zidd …because bhuloka was shining better than maraloka … NOW MADHVACHARYA says grandfather always likes to fulfill the desires of grandchild …however sily it may be or illogical it may be or however against time it may seem , even if it is hurting or against lokmaryada improper way of talking or even if it looks like small child is arguing pestering and ordering in anger …still forgiving all those grandfather accepts the demands of his grandchildren , this i the relations pitamahaparaputra share ..
        Rudradevaru is prapoutra of Lord NARAYANA and hence Bramha deva sent him to ask Shriraama to stop his avatara kaal .
        as this discussion was going on .. Rudradevaru in another rupa of DURVASA muni came and asked Laxman that he wants to meet Raama urgently becaue his wish has never been fulfilled by anyone and he thinks Raama would fulfill it
        Laxman thought , not leaving durvasa muni would give a apavaada to their dynasty and rule of RAAMa , if he allows that would only result in his death , [ perhaps even that has slight chance of getting pardon from Rama] so he decides to allow durvasa muni to interrupt the meeting between Shiva and Raama .
        Durvaasa muni asked Raama ” I am hungry since many years , I want food , but condition is I should be served that is fresh , that which has not been prepared before i finish words and i should not be served food which has been prepared after I have finished my words ./.
        jUst as Durvasa muni was asking Raama created many types of food though hi divine palm .. and served Durvasa muni .. Durvasa muni was satisfied and went away ..
        rudra deva went away seeking approval from Raama ..
        Raama did bandhu tyaga of brother Laxman .. bandhu tyaaga is bandhu vadha .
        and offered that he would grant Moxa to whoever comes with him ..
        all the people who had some sadhana left and all those who were nitya samsaaris ,. did not follow Raama but rest all including twigs and trees and animals followed Raama .

        Dear Sir,
        why brahma rudra had to ask lord to return…..he was to leave sometime anyway as avtar samapti
        is done for sure after the purpose of avtara is served. then why the pleading?
        “this made Bramha decide that the importance of satyaloka should be more”…..
        why should lord make bhuloka better than even satyalok in first place? and then make brahma think like this? what sense does it make….pls explain.

        Your explanation of pestering of grand father by a grand child reminded me of something I mentioned in one of my mails to you :D….. I was complaining to Rayaru just like a innocent grand child and I wasn’t asking a silly thing after all :D… and yes it is not surprising that bhuloka became more rich in granduer and splendour than other lokas because LORD Himself was present here… sometimes I wonder why LORD has fixed His stay as Krishna for only 125 years…. if He were here for 10000 years we all would have had pratyaksh darshan of Him :D… of course it’s another thing that kali cannot enter as long as He will be present on Bharat khanda…. so He had to go back if kali yuga should start…. and the new point I learned is… it was Rudra devaru that came as the ascetic and not Yama…

      My two cents on this question…

      After 13000 years of Rama Rajya, Yama comes in the form of brahmana [ to request LORD to return to Vaikuntha ] but on a condition that nobody should be allowed to come in the chamber while he is talking to LORD. And whoever barges in should be given death sentance. Shri Raama agrees and keeps Laxmana as dwarapaal to his chamber for safegaurding this secret meeting. While conversation is going on between Raama and Yama, Rishi Durvasa comes and insists on seeing Shri Rama immediately. Laxman requests him to wait but the rishi becomes angry and about to curse Raghu vamsha. Then Laxman interrupts Raams and Yama’s meeting to inform about Rishi Durvasa’s arrival. Then in order to keep Shri Rama’s word, gives up body with yoga and returns to Vaikuntha as Sesha. In this way Shri Rama ‘kills’ Laxman.

      Guruvarya please consider this as purvapaksha, please forgive if I am completely wrong.

      Raama killed Lakshmana by ordering separation/return-to-abode.

      I had a query regarding Yama visiting Lord Raama. I think in MBTN, AchArya has mentioned it as Kaala. But in Sangraha Ramayana, Narayana Panditacharya has clearly mentioned it was Rudra in Kaala form who came to request Lord Raama.

      Also, Sri Vyasanakere Prabhanjanacharya, in his translation of Sangraha Ramayana has quoted AchArya’s Bhagavata Tatparya Nirnaya and concluded it is indeed Rudra who came in Kaala form.

      Please clarify if it was Rudra or Yama who came to request the Lord.
