#013 , RAMA threatens a mountain

Aranya Kanda
Chapter 31

Kruddho abraviit girim tatra
simhaha kshudra mrigam yathaa
taam hema varn`aam heema aangiim
Siitaam darshaya parvata
yaavat saanuuni sarvaan`i na
tee vidhvamsayaami

Ravana abducted Sita. Rama and Lakshmana were searching for Sita. Out of grief, Rama requests a mountain to tell him where his Sita was.

Here the poet Valmiki compares Rama's anger to a lion's anger when it sees a puny animal. Rama says 'Show me my golden tinged and golden bodied Sita; no sooner before I destroy all your peaks and valleys.

*Threaten a mountain if you cannot find your wife at home!
*If Rama can destroy mountain peaks and valleys, there will be no need for him to build bridges across seas with the help of monkeys. His outpouring is understandable considering his miserable plight.

Tato Daasharathii Raama
uvaaca s`ilooccayam
mama baan`a agni nirdagdho
bhasmii bhuuto bhavishyasi
aseevyaha satatam caiva
nistrun`aa drumaa pallavaha.

If some mountain is unable to show his lost wife (Rama's wife), will Rama reduce it to ashes, devoid of grass, plants and buds? This type of talk, an ordinary person may make. Definitely not a Purushottama, the greatest among the humans.

Are u quoting this verse to say Rama doubted sita's chastity and thats why he's referring her as 'anindita'? well take a look at the verse below, this verse is said by Kaushalya while rebuking Dasharatha after the trio leaves towards forest.

giita vaaditra nirghoSam shrutvaa shubham aninditaa |
katham kravya ada simhaanaam shabdam shroSyati ashobhanam || 2-61-6

How the irreprochable Sita can bear to hear the horrible sounds of carnivorous animals after she has heard auspicious music here?(in palace)
so hear kaushalya too refers Sita as 'anindita' so now u would want tosay kaushalya too is questioning her daughter-in-law?? No way! 'anindita' is a title which is given to women of good conduct . the verse u mentioned of rama saying so about sita is out of love n respect towards his wife. thats the way of speaking in sanskrit

By quoting verses in isolation what do u want to prove is quite understood. must say u've writtenthis so called 'well researched blog' with a mind full of hatred and ofcourse with a brain with a size of pea
wow u've made quite a breakthrough! congratulations, *celebrate*

Thank U very much for pointing out the error. I have removed the entire piece and replaced it with another verse, which is totally different.

It is unreasonable for you to attribute to hatred to me.

I am happy with a small brain of a pea. If I have a large brain of the size of a coconut, you will not be able to bear its vigor. Anyway, you I welcome rashness. Your rashness will also improve me.
