KING RAVANA OF RAMAYANA , HERO OR VILLIAN VADAKAYIL
In the post above Jaya ( Ravana ) stole the wedded wife of Lord Vishnu ( as avatar Rama ).
In this post Lord Vishnu ( avatar Krishna ) will steal Jaya’s ( Shishupala’s ) would be wife .
How do you like that !!
Dantavakra ( Vijaya ) was the brother-in-law of Shishupala ( Jaya ).
Shishupala was the king of Chedi, the son of king Damghosh by his wife Shrutshrava and the sister of Vasudev , Krishna's father. This made him a cousin of Krishna and Balrama.
In his Vishnu's Krishna avatar the killing of Shishupala and Danthavakra is not the main focus but more to reduce the 'Bhoobhara" (The burden on mother earth ).
The effect of the curse of the 4 kumaras was wearing of and they were being born as progressively less evil and less strong characters. Both the re-incarnations Jaya and Vijaya , were first cousins of Krishna, born to two sisters of Krishna's father Vasudeva.
Shishupal was born with three eyes and four arms, and brayed like an effin’ ass.
His parents wanted to abandon the ugly child, but a celestial voice stopped them . This voice said that their son would become very powerful, and the man, on whose lap when placed, and the child would lose his superfluous members, would be the one who would ultimately slay him.
Many kings came to see the weirdo child, and Damghosh placed the child on the lap of each, but no change came about in the child.
One day, Krishna and his brother Balrama came to visit their aunt.
The moment Krishna took the child in his arms, the additional limbs and eye disappeared.. The mother was overjoyed but at the same time she remembered warning given by the sage that the person who will be responsible for the Shishupal’s normalcy will also be the cause of his death in future.
Krishna’s aunt Shrutushravaa was aghast that her nephew would kill her son. She pleaded with Krishna. Krishna said that he was powerless against destiny, but would forgive a hundred offences before letting the prophecy take effect.
Pretty soon Shishupal became a powerful king and was a strong ally of Jarasandha.
Pandav prince Yudhistar was made the king of Indraprasta and Prince Dhuryodhana was the crowned prince of Hastinapur.
Dantavakra ( Vijaya ) too was born with protruding and jagged teeth . Dantavakra literally means "crooked teeth". His mother Pruthudevi , sister of Krishna’s father Vasudeva too was aghast at his ugliness but was hopeful that his deformity would be rectified in due course.
Both Shishupal and Dantavakra grew up together.
Shishupal's father Damghosh was the king of Chedi and Dantavakra's father Vriddhasaman was the king of Karusha. Both were under the sovereignty of Jarasandh, emperor of Magadha.
Shishupal and Dantavakra grew up under Jarasandh's tutelage.
Jarasandh's attempt to subjugate all around him had been thwarted by Krishna and hence he hated Krishna. This hatred was naturally shared by Shishupal and Dantavakra
After Bhima killed Jarasandha, Yudhisthira organised a famous rajasooya yajana. He invited many kings and princes. Shishupal too was invited.
As the yajna began, Shishupal saw Krishna in the crowd. Seeing him there he began hurling abuses at Krishna, Shishupal thought he would get the sympathy of the other guests, who would support him.
The Rajsuya Yajna was nearing its completion. The last rite was to confer honors upon the kings who had participated in the ritual.
Before starting this rite, it was customary to worship the best participant according to the manner prescribed in the religious scriptures. Yudhisthir did not want to choose the best candidate for worship after his own will. So, he decided to consult all the participants present there.
Sahadeva, ruler of Magdha, proposed the name of Krishna , as he was personally obliged to him for his coronation. Most of the kings and the Brahmans seconded the proposal though a number of kings opposed it . The opposing faction consisted of the supporters of Shishupal, who had an old grudge against Krishna because of Rukmini.
Shishupala opposed the worship of Krishna as the best participant using objectionable and disgraceful words for him. He suggested that either Bhishma or Drona should be the candidates for worship. But these two worthy stalvarts had already supported Krishna's candidature. So, a vehement argument started and Yudhishthir was at a loss what to do.
The mindless brawl over the choice of the rightful candidate for worship was not coming to an end as Shishupal and his supporters were dead against the worship of Krishna.
Shishupala cried, “Have all the kings in this hall lost their senses? Why have everyone accepted a cowboy to be the guardian deity when there are many great warriors in this hall? Why should noble Kshatriyas like us devote our prayers to a cowherd who has no noble family, is dark skinned and is a virtueless person”
Krishna stood up and addressed the gathering saying " Listen all. Shishupala is my cousin— the son of my father's sister. He has been vehemently opposing me at every step for a long time. I would have done away with him far earlier but for his mother's request to pardon him. Now I warn him to come to the right path. I won't say or do anything till he has used at least one hundred disgraceful terms for me. But after it, I won't spare him at all."
Unluckily better sense did not prevail on Shishupal and he went on and on , with his vitriolic abuse against Krishna.
Krishna now calmly said " This fellow Shishupala is hell bent upon meeting with his end and I am helpless."
Krishna wielded his chakra and directed it at Shishupal. It went revolving to Shishupal and severed his neck from the rest of his body. Then it returned to Krishna's hand.
Everybody present was frightened even to look at Krishna who had assumed his divine colossal form (Virat Roop).
Everybody stood up and prayed to Krishna. Soon Krishna assumed his normal form and put on a benign look as before.
Now, Shishupala was a close friend of Rukmi , whose sister Rukmini was very beautiful. Rukmi wanted Shishupala to marry his sister Rukmini. It was known to all that Rukmini , was an incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi , and that she wanted to marry Krishna .
This was the root cause of Shishupal’s rivalry with Lord Krishna According to the Mahabharat and the Puranas, Draupadi was regarded as the most beautiful and virtuous of all women at the time. It is said that if there was any one woman to match Draupadi, it was Rukmini.
Rukmini's eldest brother Rukmi was a friend of evil King Kansa, who was killed by Krishna. Rukmi was an ambitious prince and he did not want to earn the wrath of Emperor Jarasandha, who did NOT want Krishna to marry princess Rukmini.
Ruthless king Jarasandha wanted Rukmini to be married to his friend Shishupala, the crown prince of Chedi. Shishupala was also a vassal of Jarasandha and hence an ally of Rukmi.
When Shishupala started abusing Krishna, Bhima got very angry and wanted to attack and kill Shishupala .
At that moment Krishna stood up and warned Shishupala " I have promised your mother to forgive only 100 of your wrong deeds. You have already been forgiven 100 times. One more abuse from you , and I will slay you.”
Yudhishthira performed the funeral rites of Shishupala , and his son Dhrishtaketu was installed on the throne of Chedi.
Bhishmaka, the king of Vidarbha had five sons and a daughter Rukmini. Bhishmaka, the king of Vidarbha, was a vassal of mighty King Jarasandha of Magadha
Rukmini was in love with Krishna’s having heard so much about him. Krishna too was attracted by Rukmini’s great beauty, and exemplary character.
Her eldest brother Rukmi was adamant that she should marry his friend Shishupala, the king of Chedi.
Soon she became desperate. For her father King Bhishmaka was making lavish arrangements for her marriage with Shishupala. Bhishmaka and Shishupala’s father, Damaghosha, individually performed the propitiatory rituals and offered gifts to the brahmanas with reverence.
Finding no other alternative, she decided to send a brahmana Sunanda to Dvaraka with a letter to Krishna.
She wrote, “O Lord! My marriage with Shishupala has been fixed for tomorrow. I would suggest we get married by the rakshasa mode of marriage, one of the eight methods approved by the Hindu scriptures. According to this, the bride is carried away by force after killing the bride’s relations. I also have another idea to avoid killing my family people. Tomorrow morning, as is customary, I will be led in a procession to the temple of Uma. That would be the opportune moment for you to abduct me. So you will have to reach here well in time for the procession. Failing to win your favour, I will fast unto death.”
Krishna went into quick action. He harnessed his best steeds with Daruka as the charioteer. In the company of elder brother Balarama and the brahmana, he covered the long distance overnight. Balarama anticipated a stiff opposition when he heard about Krishna’s abduction plan. Therefore he took along his best fighters , to retaliate, if the situation demanded.
In the meanwhile, Rukmini was getting restless as the brahmana she had sent to Krishna had not returned even after dusk. She was apprehensive that her action was impulsive and had earned Krishna’s displeasure.
While Rukmini’s thoughts were oscillating between uncertainty and hope, the brahmana’s arrival in her inner apartments infused life and delight in her.
When her father Bhishmaka heard of the arrival of Balarama and Krishna, he thought they had come with eagerness to participate in the wedding festivities of Rukmini. He extended a wonderful welcome to the honourable guests.
The people of Vidarbha were great fans of Krishna. They thought he would be an ideal match for their princess and prayed that God should make the union possible. Rukmini was led to the temple of Ambika, next morning, in a well guarded procession.
Rukmini prayed and broke her fast by having the temple prasadam. As she came out of the temple, she looked round and spotted Krishna. Meanwhile several kings who had come skippety skip to win her hand in marriage were looking on .
When she approached Krishna, he came forward , effortlessly lifted her and drove her away in his chariot. Balarama and others secure their safe passage by fighting those who tried to resist the union.
Shishupala’s friends never expecting this, stood aghast at the turn of events. Jarasandha and many other wannabe husband kings cursed themselves for helplessly looking on while a mere cowherd carried away the coveted prize.
They said, “Fie upon us to call ourselves warriors. We are unworthy of wielding the bow and arrow.”
The enemy army chasing Krishna’s chariot, came under severe attack from Balarama and marched a hasty retreat.
The crest fallen Shishupala was comforted by Jarasandha who quoted his own case as a morale booster. He said, “I have been defeated by Krishna seventeen times but I am not demoralized. I am still hopeful of a win against that cowherd boy. You see, Krishna’s luck is now at an all time high. But in the near future, it will surely come down like the rim of a wheel, when we can ensure our victory over him.”
TEE HEEE !
Shishupala pretended to be somewhat consoled .
Meanwhile Rukmini’s father Bhishmaka secretly rejoiced with his wife when he knew that their daughter Rukmini would marry Krishna .
However when he heard the revenge oath of his son Rukmi , he trembled.
He ran to his son and pleaded….'Rukmini loves Krishna! She was the one who invited Krishna to come and take her away . Please my dear son , let her be happy! Let it go !'
Rukmi took it as a personal insult because this match had been opposed by him from the very beginning. He refused to listen to his parents.
His mind was overpowered by two thoughts, revenge on Krishna and the recovery of his dear sister. He vowed not to rest in peace till he had successfully executed his resolve.
Pretty soon he caught up with Krishna and attacked him. But Krishna easily parried his arrows and broke his sword broken to pieces.
When Krishna was about to kill Rukmi, Rukmini fell at his feet and pleaded to spare her brother’s life. Out of respect for her words, he tied him with a cloth.
He sliced off half his sikha ( kudumi or hair tuft ) . Cutting the whole tuft would be equivalent to killing him in battle due to the enormous disrespect involved .
Krishna with his sword raised said. ‘The only reason I am letting you live is because of my wife Rukmini!…’
Krishna spared Rukmi’s life. But Rukmi had resolved that he would not return to Kundina without killing Krishna.
So he had to build a new city known as Bhojakata where he began to live. Later on he would die in the hands of Balarama, Krishna’s brother in a bizarre incident.
Krishna’s son Pradyumna married King Rukmi’s daughter and had a son named Aniruddha.
Aniruddha married Rukmi’s grand-daughter. On the occasion of this marriage, Krishna, Balarama and the other Yadavas arrived at Rukmi’s capital Bhojakata.
After the marriage was over, some kings told Rukmi, “Balarama loves to play dice, and he is no good at it. Why not arrange match of dice in which we can defeat Balarama?”
Rukmi agreed to this proposition and a dice match was arranged in which Rukmi would take on Balarama. In the first round, Rukmi won four thousand gold pieces off Balarama. This happened a second time and a third time as well. At this, the king of Kalinga and Rukmi began to sneer and get sarcastic with Balarama.
Balarama got annoyed andwagered four crores of gold pieces as a bet. Rukmi threw the dice, but this time Balarama won.
“I have won,” cried Balarama in triumph.
“ Absolutely not, you haven’t”, replied Rukmi. “You did place your bet, but I did not accept it. So you have not really won.”
Words were then heard from heaven which said that it was Balarama who was in the right. For although Rukmi had not verbally accepted the bet, his throwing of the dice meant that the bet was acceptable to him, to even a idiot onlooker.
Pissed off , Balarama who has a short fuse, picked up a dice and killed Rukmi with it.
He also caught hold of the constantly sneering king of Kalinga and broke off his sparkling front teeth.
Krishna had married Rukmini according to the rakshasa form of marriage. Their son Pradyumna was kidnapped by Shambarasura as soon as he was born. But later on , Pradyumna would kill Shambarasura.
Shalva a small time king, and a close friend of Shishupal, who had an axe to grind with Krishna.
He attacked Dwarka, Krishna's kingdom, but was killed on the battlefield by Krishna.
King Dantvakra ( Vijaya ) was the ruler of Karusha kingdom. He was the best friend of Shalva who had been slain by Krishna , despite having a vimana obtained from Shiva through a boon after long penance.
Dantvakra saw the dead body of his friend Shalva, he became mad in rage and his eyes began to emit fire.
Dantavakra decided to avenge Shalva's death. Proud and overconfident he fought without armour and a chariot , with just a mace.
Lord Krsna saw him approaching alone in a very gung ho mood. He immediately got down from his chariot, for it was a rule of military etiquette or dharma that fighting should take place only between equals.
Krisna dismounted fromhis chariot, took off his armour and waited with his mace.
Like Shishupal before him Dantavakra heaped abuses on Krishna and then punced on him.
Krishna easily bore the brunt of Dantavakra's attack and ultimately he tore open Dantavakra’s ribcage with his mace, known as Kaumodaki.
His heart popped out of his ribcage, Dantavakra with his hair scattered , staggered over a few steps vomiting blood, and soon fell down lifeless.
Onlookers had noticed that when Shishupala and Dantavakra fell down dead, a ball of light as of spiritual effulgence came out of their bodies and merged into the body of Lord Krisna. The prophesy of Jaya and Vijaya had finally been fulfilled. They would be Lord Vishnu’s gatekeepers in Vaikunta again.
The place where Dantavakra was killed is today called Datiha .
Now, Dantavakra had a brother named Viduratha who became overwhelmed with grief at the death of Dantavakra. Out of grief and anger, Viduratha attacked Krishna with a sword and a shield in his hands.
Krishna employed his mind controlled scalar discus , the Sudarsana chakra, and without further fuss he cut off the head of Viduratha, with its helmet , earrings et all.

Indeed, i read the above post and its exactly same. Sir, however one question - usually we offer water on shiva lingam (due to reasons explained in one of your earlier post), then at vatican and kabba, are they still continuing the same practice covertly ?... What happens if this is not continued or are there any other alternatives (may be a silly question).. I am still learning...

You will find millions of funda on the internet and Hindu literature – even by learned gurus like Vivekananda and hundreds of shankaracharyas..
NOBODY HAS UNDERSTOOD HINDUISM SINCE ADI SHANKARACHARYA OF 2000 BC—and few German Quantum physicists ( who all converted to Hinduism and got cremated. .)
Shiva Lingam contains the soul-seed ( DNA ) within which lies the essence of the entire cosmos.
Water holds memory.
Copper kalasha drips water right on top of the shiva lingam and this water bathes the lingam uniformly. In ancient days this water used to be LIVING ganges water.
The base has a run off for water – and this water is holy theertham . The white man called the Lingam as Shiva’s erect phallus and the run off base for water as YONI( vagina – note the extreme sarcasm ).
ALL LIFE ON THIS PLANET EARTH CAME FROM SHIVA LINGAM – A BLACK METRORITE STONE . WHEREVER WE FOUND SUCH A STONE, THE HINDUS MADE A TEMPLE OVER IT .
I have been telling this in my posts .
One day, three years ago NASA agreed with capt ajit vadakayil.
Punch into Google search-
You will find it on page one item one among 8 million posts—even ahead of NASA’s post on this subject .
If you cant see it by some quirk, enter-- NASA DNA METEORITE VADAKAYIL.
Theertham water holds memory .
The computers of the future ( maybe 200 years in future ) will NOT contain silicon chips.
They will hold water . In another 400 years I predict computers will be conscious and they can laugh at a joke or tell the moral of a story narrated to it .
Punch into Google search-
WATER VALLEY VADAKAYIL .
MILLIONS OF HINDUS WERE MADE SELF LOATHING BY THE STORY OF SHIVA’S PRICK DRIPPING SEMEN ALL AROUND THE PLACE , RIGHT?
We had INDOPHILE white men and women ( like Wendy Doniger ) interpreting Hindusim for us , right?—all wolves in sheep’s clothing !
TIME FOR THESE IMMORAL WHITE MEN TO EAT HUMBLE FU#KIN’ PIE !
IT IS THE INTERNET AGE—
IT IS PAYBACK TIME !

I was wondering what your thoughts are on "Nirvana Shatakam" written by Adi Shankaracharya. I've read your views on Jaggi Vasudev, and considering that he touts Nirvana Shatakam as one of the 'Vairagya' mantras, I wanted to get your take on it, if you have the time. Thanks!

THIS FAKE GURU SADGURU JAGGI VASUDEV DOES NOT KNOW THAT ALL HINDU GODS ARE COSMIC ALLEGORIES--EXCEPT VISHNUs MORTAL AVATARS VAMANA/ PARASHURAMA/ RAMA/ KRISHNA/ AYYAPPA.
THIS RASCAL SADGURU JAGGI VASUDEV MADE A LARGE STATUE OF ADI YOGI ( SHIVA ) AND APCO MODI RAN FASTER THAN USAIN BOLT TO INAUGURATE IT...
SINCE MODI SAT ON THE PM CHAIR HE HAS REGULARLY STRUCK AT THE ROOTS OF HINDUISM.. MODI HAS PROPPED UP EVERY JEW ROTHSCHILDs FAKE AND BACDATED CREATION.
I HEARD SADGURU JAGGI VASUDEV TELLING ON NDTV THAT SHIVA WAS BORN 15,000 YEARS AGO AND HE WAS GOOD IN DOING WHAT HE DID -- LIKE HOW SACHIN TENDULKAR IS WORSHIPED AS GOD OF CRICKET
ALL READERS PAY ATTENTION-- THIS IS CRITICAL--
THE GOD OF SANATANA DHARMA IS A "MORHOGENETEIC CONSCIOUSNESS FIELD- BRAHMAN " WHICH CANNOT HE PICKED UP BY THE 5 SENSES--ON MICRO AND MACRO SCALE.
ON MICRO SCALE THIS EMPTY SPACE ( INTELLIGENT FIELD ) PROVIDES PERPETUAL MOTION WITHIN AN ATOM.
ON MACRO SCALE IT IS AKASHA ( ETHER ) WHERE THE ENTIRE COSMOS HOLDS THEIR POSITIONS
ABOVE IS THE BASE TEMPLATE --ADVAITA
ON TOP OF THIS DVAITA TEMPLATE --WE HAVE SUPERIMPOSED THE DVAITA TEMPLATE OF THE TRINITY BRAHMA ( CREATOR -RAJAS) - VISHNU ( MEDIATOR-SATTVA ) AND SHIVA ( DESTROYER -TAMAS)
THIS IS THE DANCE OF OPPOSITE POLES --LIKE EVAPORATION AND CONDENSATION.
THE WIVES OF TRINITY GODS ARE PART OF THIS DANCE WHICH SUSTAIN THIS COSMOS.
SARASWATI WIFE OF BRAHMA IS THE MOTHER LIGHT ENERGY FROM QUASARS ( FASTER THAN LIGHT IN SPEED )
KALI THE WIFE OF SHIVA IS DARK ENERGY OF THE COSMOS --SHE REPRESENTS THE BLACK HOLE
In Dvaita Hinduism opposite poles Tamas and Rajas are conscious of each other. Tamas creates Rajas, and Rajas activates/ excites Tamas. Sattva preserves and mediates .
7000 year old Vedas say that the only constant in the cosmos is change, everything is in a state of flux, nothing is static-- everything is vibratory. This is what guarantees growth and evolution. It is a cosmic spiraling dance of separate opposing forces, which sustains this universe
One cannot exist without the other and they are dependant . No phenomenon in this universe is completely devoid of its opposite. They consume each other yet support each other.
CONTINUED TO 2-
CONTINUED FROM 1-
If the restraining balance or equilibrium is lost by the mediator ( Vishnu ) , the universe will spiral out of control and end. This is why Lord Vishnu is called the PRESERVER god. And only Vishnu can have mortal avatars.
As for the opposing forces TAMAS/ RAJAS ( Brahma/ Shiva ) it really does NOT matter as who is who, like in AC electricity-where you can plug into the socket both ways.
These two opposing forces are natural and transform each other , in perfect harmony. Harmony can never be stagnant . Lessening of Tamas always results in increase of Rajas and vice versa.
Balance can never be permanent— Tamas and Rajas continiously devour each other – and life flows on. This universe cannot exist without vibrations between two poles.
THE THIRD TEMPLATE IS SAMKHYA
This is about the male and female joint TEAM effort. This is NOT a dance of opposites. In Hinduism we call the MALE- purusha and FEMALE- prakriti.
In the Tantric cosmology, the whole universe is perceived as being created, penetrated and sustained by two fundamental forces, which are permanently in a perfect, indestructible UNION. These forces or universal aspects are called Shiva ( Purusha ) and Shakti (Prakriti ).
Each of the trinity gods are powerless without their consorts.
Purusha and Pragati is expressed as Shiva and Shakti in the same body 50:50 – this is NOT a she boy or a transgender . It is a mindboggling, intelligent concept.
Both Shiva and Shakti are Consciousness---- Shiva is the changeless static aspect of Consciousness, and Shakti is the kinetic, active aspect of the same Consciousness.
Through uniting with Purusha , Pragati gave form to his spirit and created the universe.(we are talking about CREATION OF THE COSMOS here- not street side sex as figured out by small minds)
When the insentient Prakriti comes in contact with the sentient Purusha , the universe evolves.
Purusha symbolizes consciousness, the masculine principle. Pragati symbolizes the feminine principle, the activating energy.
The cosmos in all its manifestations, as an act of love. The relationship between say- Shakti and Shiva is the dance of consciousness and energy
Prakriti cannot be perceived, not because of its non-existence, but because of its subtlety. It is perceived in its effects.
The eternal and indestructible union between Shiva and Shakti gives birth to the whole Macrocosm, in its stable, static aspect as well as in its dynamic one. Not only is Shakti responsible for creation, it is also the agent of all change
Shakti is manifested by Shiva only during creation and is withdrawn into himself at the end of creation. This is for the perceptive.
Modern science repeats from our Vedas that matter and energy are interchangeable. So does consciousness and energy .
Samkhya as you can see was a masterpiece of modeling the ways of the inner universe.
The union of Shakti with Shiva by Kundalini rise is the liberation of seeker from the cycle of endless birth and death.
DO YOU THINK IDIOTS LIKE SRI SRI RAVISHANKAR AND SADGURU JAGGI VASUDEV CAN EVER UNDERSTAND THIS—THEIR PADMA VIBHUSHAN MINDS ARE TOO SMALL AND THINKING PROCESS TOO PETTY
