Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Ravan was a very intelligent character in ramayan people viwed him as having ten heads it does not mean ten head mounted on single neck and

having twenty eyes ect . normal creation of god man usess only 5 to 6%

of brain one among us who usees more than say 10% becomes intelligent

in such terms Ravan was master of so many vidhas of life during that time

for normal person it was impossible to bealive that a normal person can master so many things and that is why it is said that he must be having ten heads :idea:

Dear Avinash,


Ravana is born with ten heads. And in birth itself his father named him dasamuka due to this.


The interpretations of him not having ten heads actually, and they symbolically represent his knowledge, is a rational interpretation. If this is true then we should advance the same rational interpretation to all mythological beings including gods. Four headed brahma then would simply mean actuially a one headed person with knowledge of four vedas , Six headed kartikeya really had no six head etc.


If we were to take puranas as such - with out rationalizing - then we need to assume that Ravana was a ten headed being.
