Difference between Kamba Ramayana and Valmiki Ramayan

Kamba Ramayana is the Tamil Version of the Valmiki Ramayana but with original poetic touches of Kamban, the Tamil poet who wrote the epic in Tamil. Here are some of the striking difference between Kamba Ramayana and Valmiki Ramayan.

We All Have a Weakness and this is a Trap of Nature

We all have a weakness and this is created by nature to cause our downfall – to open the exit doors from the world. This weakness can be jealousy, over indulgence, avarice, anger, lust, fear, ego, greediness, power, alcohol, superiority complex, inferiority complex, overeating, possessiveness, unwanted attachment to a particular thing, passion etc…

A weakness is not always associated with negative qualities. Even positive qualities, which are in excess and without logic, can cause problems. Love, obsession with studies, things, power, success, name, fame…fear of failure etc are also form of weakness.

Anything that is too much is a weakness.

Ultimately, this weakness causes our downfall. Our success and happiness in the world depends on our ability to keep our weakness in control.

If you take a close look at the life of some people, you will realize that death or their failure in life is due to their weakness.

If we become a slave of our weakness then it will wreck havoc in our life…
