Dasharatha: The Choice of the Eternal One

There was a king, friend to the wise, a torment to his enemies, endowed with sacred knowledge, Dasharatha by name, whom, being the best by his virtues, the Eternal One chose as His own father on the pretext of benefiting the world.

आभून् नृपो विबुधसखः परंतपः श्रुतान्वितो दशरथ इत्युदाह्र्तः / गुणैर्वरं भुवनहितच्छलेन यं सनातनः पितरम् उपागमत्स्वयम् //

AbhUn nrupO vibhuDHasakhaha paranthapaha shruthAnvithO dhasharaTHa ithyudhAhrthaha / guNaivaram bhuvanahithachCHalEna yam sanAthanaha pitharam upAgamathsvayam //

  1. Dear Sir,

    We find you are interested in finding Sciences in Vedas,and hence we would like to introduce you about initiative eAnveshan, an online platform where we strive to bring out the scientific discoveries in the ancient Indian texts to light. This will help the current and future generation understand and appreciate our heritage and also help us solve many unanswered questions and doubts and also mysteries. We encourage open participation, meaning all the topics on the web site are open for discussion and interested individuals can add their opinion in the topics of their choice.

    We have a panel of experts dealing with mythology,cosmology, Vedas, Vedic Mathematics and etc and we also are on the constant look for some more interested individuals who can contribute their expertise.Please let us know if you are interested in joining experts panel.We are also highly interested in finding scientific reasons behind Hindu rituals and traditions like Janeu Sanskar etc.

    Please support India in exploring its hidden world of Scientific knowledge of Ancient Sanskrit texts.Its now enough saying Vedas contain particle physics and Brahmand Puran contains Cosmology, its time to move on one step further because Science do not demand words, it demands proof, and entire eAnveshan community is dedicated to present the Sciences in Sanskrit before the world.

    Further please let us know if you are interested in Volunteering this effort.eAnveshan needs volunteers for spreading word to science community.Feedback and comments are most welcome.
