The epic tale of victory and defeat... The story of the Ramayana had been told innumerable times. The enthralling story of Rama, the incarnation of God, who slew Ravana, the evil demon of darkness, is known to every Indian. And in the pages of history, as always, it is the version told by the victors, that lives on. The voice of the vanquished remains lost in silence. But what if Ravana and his people had a different story to tell? The story of the Ravanayana had never been told. Asura is the epic tale of the vanquished Asura people, a story that has been cherished by the oppressed outcastes of India for 3000 years. Until now, no Asura has dared to tell the tale. But perhaps the time has come for the dead and the defeated to speak. "For thousands of years, I have been vilified and my death is celebrated year after year in every corner of India. Why? Was it because I challenged the Gods for the sake of my daughter? Was it because I freed a race from the yoke of caste-based Deva rule? You have heard the victor's tale, the Ramayana. Now hear the Ravanayana, for I am Ravana, the Asura, and my story is the tale of the vanquished." "I am a non-entity-invisible, powerless and negligible. No epics will ever be written about me. I have suffered both Ravana and Rama - the hero and the villain or the villain and the hero. When the stories of great men are told, my voice maybe too feeble to be heard. Yet, spare me a moment and hear my story, for I am Bhadra, the Asura, and my life is the tale of the loser." The ancient Asura empire lay shattered into many warring petty kingdoms reeling under the heel of the Devas. In desperation, the Asuras look up to a young saviour-Ravana. Believing that a better world awaits them under Ravana, common men like Bhadra decide to follow the young leader. With a will of iron and a fiery ambition to succeed, Ravana leads his people from victory to victory and carves out a vast empire from the Devas. But even when Ravana succeeds spectacularly, the poor Asuras find that nothing much has changed for them. It is when that Ravana, by one action, changes the history of the world.

Onappottan, a symbolic representation of King Bali. Onappottan visits houses during the onam and gives blessings. Of late onappottan has become a rare sight, confined to villages.Bali, an asura, was the son of Devamba and Virochana. He grew up under the tutelage of his grandfather, Prahlada, who instilled in him a strong sense of righteousness and devotion. Bali would eventually succeed his grandfather as the king of the Asuras, and his reign over the realm was characterized by peace and prosperity. He would later expand his realm - bringing the entire world under his benevolent rule - and was even able to conquer the underworld and Heaven, which he wrested from Indra and the Devas. The Devas, after their defeat at the hands of Bali, approached their patron Vishnu and entreated him to restore their lordship over Heaven. In Heaven, Bali, on the advice of his guru and advisor, Sukracharya, had begun the Ashwamedha Yaga so as to maintain his rule over the three worlds. Vishnu, meanwhile, had adopted the avatar of Vamana, a small Brahmin boy, and, during the rite, ...

Myth and mysticism have reigned supreme in Rgvedic interpretation for more than two millennia and a half. Even now, it cannot be said to be free of these. This study aims at completing the process of rational inquiry in Rgveda begun two centuries ago. It leaves behind myths and mystic experiences, simultaneously drawing the line between fact and fancy, which has eluded the scholars. Two types of evidence - literary and archaeological - have been used. Literary evidence ranges from Rgveda to the Brahmanas. The Archaeological material covers pre-Harappan , Harappan and post-Harappan levels. Through the interdisciplinary approach consisting of linguistic, anthropological and symbolical analysis of the material, the study emphasizes a consistently rational attitude to the study of Rgveda. In fact, as the study amply demonstrates, the fresh air of reason may change our understanding of Rgveda and also of ancient Indian history. Rgvedic hymns from this viewpoint may probably prove to be a valuable source of information of the historical events, which led to the downfall of the pre-Aryan Indus civilization. This is correlated to the archaeological material available on the Harappan sites. This is the first investigation of its kind and the conclusions of the study are no less original. Besides establishing the rationality of the Rgvedic narratives, it shows the events and their agents to be historical in the light of available archaeological material. The theory and the approach hold out a promise and may transform our understanding of these ancient compositions from myth to history.

Le mythe, qui intéresse actuellement tant de disciplines, philosophie, ethnologie, histoire des religions, anthropologie, sémiologie, a reçu des définitions très diverses. Il a tantôt été considéré comme « l’épine dorsale dogmatique de la société primitive », comme le reflet d’une culture qui n’a pas encore conceptualisé ses principes fondamentaux en un langage philosophique ; tantôt sa portée a été réduite à celle d’un modèle dans le domaine rituel ou dans des actions arbitrairement qualifiées de significatives comme la pêche ou la chasse. On a rapproché la pensée mythique du rêve, on l’a qualifiée de « bricolage intellectuel », on a confondu le mythe et l’histoire. Il ne sera pas question ici d’ajouter une nouvelle définition du mythe, on n’entrera pas non plus dans le débat théorique du structuralisme. Les réflexions qui suivent sont destinées à éclairer l’esprit dans lequel on va analyser le mythe du roi Yayāti et à définir la méthode suivie.

Indian mythology is a gem in ancient Indian literature. Ancient Indian literature books are mostly associated with Hinduism and it is undeniable that Ramayana and Mahabharata are the greatest epic of all time. However, apart from Ramayana and Mahabharata stories, there are several interesting stories in mythological books which are also popular among people. Those stories are divine and teach us good morality in life. The category of books where we get those stories is known as Purana. There are eighteen major Puranas which are known as Mahapuranas. Along with these, many lesser-known Puranas known as Upapurana also exist. But there is a severe problem. None of these Puranas tells the stories in a chronological way. Even in most of the cases one story contradicts to another. So, it is a very difficult task to arrange them chronologically and to tell them maintaining the theme intact for those stories. In this book, I have tried my best to deliver the stories among you. The story is started from the beginning when the concept of the universe not existed. And the stories maintain a harmony between the chronology and family tree of different characters as far as possible. I have consulted different Puranas to write down every story. Also, I tried to propagate the storied maintaining the authenticity of the actual story written in books in a storytelling way. I hope you will enjoy it. This is the first book of Mythological Book Series and your kind support will give me the enthusiasm to write more.

Example in this ebook This volume deals with the myths and legends of India, which survive to us in the rich and abundant storehouse of Sanskrit literature, and with the rise and growth of Brahmanism, Buddhism, Jainism, &c. The reader is introduced to the various sacred works of the Hindus, including the ancient invocatory hymns of the four Vedas, the later speculative and expository “Forest Books” in which “the Absolute is grasped and proclaimed”, and those great epic poems the Rámáyana, which is three times longer than the Iliad, and the Máhábharata, which is four times longer than the Rámáyana. In no other country have the national poets given fuller and finer expression to the beliefs and ideals and traditions of a people, or achieved as a result wider and more enduring fame. At the present day over two hundred million Hindus are familiar in varying degrees with the legendary themes and traditional beliefs which the ancient forest sages and poets of India invested with much beautiful symbolism, and used as mediums for speculative thought and profound spiritual teachings. The sacred books of India are to the Hindus what the Bible is to Christians. Those who read them, or hear them read, are believed to be assured of prosperity in this world and of salvation in the next. To students of history, of ethnology, and of comparative religion they present features of peculiar interest, for they contain an elaborate sociology of the ancient Aryo-Indians, their political organizations, their codes of laws, their high ethical code, and above all their conceptions of God, the soul, and the Universe. Some knowledge of them is necessary for those who desire to approach with sympathy the investigation of the religious beliefs of our Hindu fellow men and to understand their outlook upon life and the world. The Introduction deals with various aspects of the study of these ancient myths and legends which have been the inspiration of a national literature infused with much grandeur and sublimity. The historic Aryan controversy, of which the science of comparative mythology is a by-product, is passed under review, and it is shown to what extent philological theories regarding race problems have been modified during recent years as a result of the adoption of broader and more exact methods of ethnic and archæological research and the ever-extending study of comparative mythology. There has also been condensed much important data dealing with the early phases of Aryo-Indian civilization accumulated for historical purposes by industrious and painstaking Sanskrit scholars who have been engaged in investigating and systematizing the internal evidence of the various religious poems and treatises. It will be found that no general agreement has yet been reached regarding Aryo-Indian chronology, but it now appears to be well established that although there were early cultural as well as racial “drifts”, fresh invasions, which had far-reaching results in the social and religious life of northern India, occurred at a late period in what is known as the Vedic Age. In consequence, the problem presented by this ancient civilization tends rather to grow more complex than to become simplified. Its origin is still wrapped in obscurity. At the very dawn of history Aryo-Indian culture had attained a comparatively high state of development, and a considerable period must be allowed for its growth. To be continue in this ebook

Les spiritualités nées en Orient -Inde, Chine, Japon, Tibet- éveillent un intérêt constant chez les Occidentaux depuis maintenant plusieurs dizaines d'années. Les pratiques, les concepts, les philosophies qui en sont issus s'intègrent peu à peu dans notre patrimoine culturel et on commence à rencontrer, au détour d'un texte ou d'une conversation, certains des mots qui les expriment. C'est pourquoi cet ouvrage correspond à une double nécessité : définir des termes dont l'usage se répand et qui n'ont pas d'équivalent en français (karma, yoga, lama, tao, zen, etc.) ; donner à tous ceux qui s'intéressent de près aux pensées et aux spiritualités orientales un instrument qui regroupe le vocabulaire indispensable (avec les développements sur des notions moins connues, des correspondances sans écrit - tibétain - chinois - japonais pour certains mots, des filiations d'écoles et de patriarches). On y trouvera donc les termes définissant les notions, les écoles, les pratiques, les principaux textes et divinités de l'hindouisme (des Védas au tantrisme), du bouddhisme (Inde, Tibet, Chine, Japon), du taoïsme et un aperçu des autres grands mouvements religieux de l'Asie (jaïnisme, sikhisme, shinto, etc.).

Ce livre étudie l'origine des populations de l'Inde actuelle (Indo-Arya, Dravidiens, Mundâ, Tibéto-Birmans) à partir des documentations anthropologique, génétique, linguistique, archéologique, mythologique. Il examine la première grande civilisation de l'Inde, la civilisation de l'Indus, son origine et ce qu'elle a laissé à la civilisation indienne ultérieure. La partie la plus innovante concerne l'apport des découvertes archéologiques récentes en Asie centrale, qui a permis une approche récente en Asie centrale, qui a permis une approche nouvelle et décisive quant à l'origine des Indo-Arya : issus de Bactriane (en Afghanistan du Nord), si ceux-ci ont échoué à l'est (au Proche-Orient) au IIe millénaire avant notre ère, ils ont formidablement réussi à l'est, donnant naissance, en quelques siècles, à l'Inde historique. L'apport de ces Indo-Arya, lointainement venus d'Europe, à la civilisation de l'Inde, est évalué sous les points de vue de la mythologie, des fêtes et rituels, de l'astronomie, de la médecine, des noms propres. Mais on scrute également l'apport d'une mythologie et de traits culturels d'origine est-asiatique, et la synthèse qui s'est faite progressivement pour aboutir à l'hindouisme moderne.
