Wrestling In Ancient Hinduism – Malla Yuddha

Wrestling known as Malla Yuddha in ancient Hinduism could be a mock fight or a real one. There is a graphic account of the real kind in the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. The famous wrestling episodes in ancient Hinduism were the ones between Hanuman and the demons, Sri Krishna and Kamsa, Bhima and Duryodhana, Bhima and Keechaka, Bhima and Jarasandha etc. Sometimes when things get out of hand, the wrestlers use mace, boulders or trees or other heavy things to hit each other. This sort of fighting had its precedent in the bout between Indra and Vritra as recounted in Vedas, where a weapon like vajra was used. In a mock fight, however, no weapon was used. Here only the closed fists of the fighters served as the means of fighting. Reference to this form of wrestling goes as far back in India history as the date of Panini, the grammarian. In one of his aphorisms, he refers to the word mustau in the locative case, attending thereby to the rule of wrestling under which one wrestle was sup

Malaya – Mountain In Mahabharata

Malaya is one of the seven chief mountains mentioned in the Mahabharata. The others are Mahendra, Sahya, Shaktimana, Rkshaparvata, Vindhya and Pariyatra. The name of the seven mountains are found in the Bhishma Parva (9, 11) of Mahabharata. Malaya was famous for Chandana (sandalwood). The Pandya and Chola kings are said to have prepared sandal paste essence from Malaya ad presented it in golden pots to Yudhisthira. The southern cool breeze coming from the Malaya is described by Sanskrit poets as an excitant for lovers. The monkeys who went in search of Mata Sita in the Ramayana are said to have crossed this mountain. The sovereign deity of the Malaya Mountain serves Kubera, God of wealth. He has a position in the assembly of Kubera. Mrityu, the God of death, is believed to have performed a penance on this mountain. In the Mahabharata, there is a description of another Malaya besides this mountain of southern India. This Malaya is said to be situated somewhere above Mount Kail

Growing Out Of Symbols

Forms, images, bells, books, temples, and all holy symbols are very good, very helpful to the growing plant of spirituality, but thus far and no farther. In the test majority of cases, we find that the plant does not grow. It is very good to be born within the limits of certain forms that help the little plant of spirituality, but if a man dies within the bounds of these forms, it shows that he has not grown, that there has been no development of the soul. If, therefore, any one says that symbols, rituals, and forms are to be kept forever, he is wrong; but if he says, that these symbols and rituals are a help to the growth of the soul, in its low and undeveloped state, he is right. But, you must not mistake this development of the soul as meaning anything intellectual. A man can be of gigantic intellect, yet spiritually he may be a baby. You can verify it this moment. All of you have been taught to believe in an Omnipresent God. Try to think of it. How few of you can have any idea
