A Role Of Boon (Varadana) In Some Upanisadic Stories
A Role Of Boon (Varadana) In Some Upanisadic Stories
Description
From the Jacket:

The boons and the curses function significantly in Vedas, Epics and Puranas. Sometime the boon becomes remedy over the curses, it leads to the development of the plot of they remain static in a way on the other hand.

Upanisadas refer to devotion, contemplation, sincere faith as means to the boon. The Upanisadas furnish in the Upanisadas we come across many stories, myths, and legends some of which have a boon as the motif.

There are works like stories of dialogues. This book is mere collection of stories from Upanisadas in which Diwakar summarises the theme of the stories. These stories do not deal with story element and the boon bearing. The scholars have touched these stories from philosophical, educational and social point of view. Still they are not evaluated from the Varadana perspective. Hence it is proposed to highlight the genesis of the boon-motif from Samhitas to Puranas and thus thereby to posturlate the concept of Varadana, the prime emphasis being on Upanisadas Upanisadic seers impart in discourses about pancagnividya, paryanka-vidya or Brahmavidya. In the dialogue the light is thrown on the shreyas and prayas or on the two paths leading a man to descend up or to descend down. Five great acaryas commentaries do project on metaphysics, exchatology and metampsychosis so far the relevant passages are analysed.
