GAME OF LIFE – PART 13
Make efforts to go extra mile
Ram, Laxman & Sita travelled far & wide in Dandaka forest feasting their eyes on scenic beauty-Mountains, woods, streams, hillocks, pools, flowers, animals, birds etc. It was sunset as they reached a beautiful lake where lovely lotuses carpeted its waters
From the crystal depths of the lake arose the sound of songs, music & dance although there was no creature around. Ram asked a sage reason for the same. He replied-This is due to sage Mandakarni, who practiced strict austerities. Indra & other devas were afraid that sage was striving for a place amongst them & sent 5 Apsaras to entangle him in love. They did & he still stays with the celestial damsels in a mansion inside this lake. The sweet music heard is due to their ornaments & dance
10 long years passed in the forest enjoying the hospitality of holy men. The trio of Ram, Laxman & Sita again came back to Sage Sutikshna’s hermitage. Ram asked-O venerable sage! Hermits informed me that Maharishi Agastya has his abode in this forest. Pls guide me to locate it as I would like to meet saintly sage & serve him
