Dasharatha
Dasharatha
Description
The Amar Chitra Katha, Dasharatha, has been drawn mainly from Valmiki's famous epic poem - Ramayana. Ravana, an evil Rakshasa, had performed severe penances and obtained a boon from Brahma. No celestial being, be it a yaksha, a gandharva or deva, could kill him. Armed with this boon, he invaded Amaravati, the city of the devas and played havoc among its inhabitants. Distressed, they appealed to Vishnu. On earth at that time, Dasharatha, the prosperous, wise and just king of Ayodhya, bent on obtaining a son, was engaged in performing a series of sacrifices. To help the devas Vishnu decided to manifest himself on earth and destroy Ravana, since Brahma's boon did not protect Ravana from men. And he chose to be born as four sons to the three queens of Dasharatha. As Dasharatha delighted in his growing sons, particularly in Rama the eldest, little did he dream that the curse, hurled at him for a sin committed by him in ignorance when he was a mere lad, would materialize with an impact that would result in his death.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
