Shodasi : Secrets of the Ramayana

A Resplendent Icon of all Arts

This is an exemplary book which elevated the status of Indian Literary Criticism to the peaks of the world literature. Shodasi is a name associated with a great hymn. The title suggests that it’s a book on spiritual discourse. A reading of this book suggests that the spirit of scientific temper is critical to comprehend Valmiki’s Srimad Ramayana. Besides this, command on Vedic or Scriptural knowledge is essential. What does a layman has to say when a towering personality like Viswanatha Satyanarayana himself extolled the critical acumen and serious scholarship of Seshendra Sharma.

Sharma has made it crystal clear that unless one has an apparent understanding of the plot’s context, psyche of the characters, and the milieu of the bygone days supplemented by extraordinary scholarship, sound knowledge of phonetics and awareness on contemporary issues; one cannot easily comprehend the poetic diction of Valmiki. The debate on the phrase “Netraturaha” is a fitting example. The uniqueness of the title, Sundara kanda, Kundalini Yoga, Gayatri Mantra secretly hidden in Trijata’s dream sequence, considering The Bharatha as an image of The Ramayana.... this book is a repository of many such critical discourses. It is replete with inconceivable and unfathomable issues. This magnum opus is an invaluable gift to the Telugu literature.

Valmiki Ramayana – Greatest Medicine for Mankind

The story of Ramayana is prescribed as textbook for students. Sita and Rama are worshiped as prime couple. No need to mention about reciting it. Whether Valmiki was satisfied with simple narration of the story? Seshendra Sharma denies it.

He analyzed it mentioning that to understand the inner meanings of Valmiki Ramayana, the scientific knowledge is essential.

The underlying secret of the sage’s mind will be known through the knowledge of science.

It is the firm opinion of Seshendra that the argument that “the sciences are for scholars only” is a conspiracy hatched by Selfish scholars and lazy uneducated persons.

Seshendra who has democratic ideology and conviction on science and literature informs the public about the secrets of Ramayana expounded by Valmiki. He explains that Valmiki dedicated ambrosia (The Greatest Medicine) named “Kundalini Yoga” to the mankind. The poetry in the metre of Anushtup Sloka is the honey coating to the medicine. It was explained with great introspection and exemplary scholarship. He concludes that the Ramayana is older than the Maha Bharatha and it is another form of Veda. Valmiki introduced the system of meditation in Ramayana. The Introspection and research bent of mind of Seshendra are spread over in the book in two streams. The exuberant fragrance of scholarship is experienced throughout the book.

The present generation can understand the scholarship of Seshendra in Vedas and Mantra Sastra. Seshendra is a poet who has composed unique Ruthu Ghosha (Cry of the Seasons: Metrical Poetry) and revolutionary free verse –Mande Suryudu (The Burning Sun).

Two Great Peaks in the world literary criticism and research

Shodasi: Secrets of The Ramayana and Swarnahamsa Harshanaishada from the mighty pen of the great Telugu poet, Gunturu Seshendra Sharma are considered to be the two great peaks in the world literary criticism and research. This is a truth most contemporary Telugu writers and readers aren’t aware of. The way Seshendra could discover Kundalini Yoga, Gayathri Mantra in Shodasi, he could discern the treasure trove of mantra yoga, Sri Mahatripurasundari, Chintamani mantra in Swarnahamsa.

At a time when our universities which are mere Degrees production Units, churn out “solid waste” in the name of research; Seshendra even while attending to his job as a Municipal Commissioner created research oriented critical volumes like a sage.

Though Shodasi was published in 1967 and Swarnahamsa in 1968; Swarnahamsa was created by him much before Shodasi was conceived. The concepts that Srinatha, Nannayya and Mallanatha, the Telugu Classical poets couldn’t decipher,
Seshendra could. He humbly submits that he is most fortunate that the triumvirate had left behind some pertinent concepts only to be discovered by him at a later stage.

These two great kavyas were serialised under the editorship of late Neelamraju Venkata Seshaiah in Andhra Prabha Daily, Sunday Literary Supplements from 1963 to 1967 and Seshendra’s poems and non-fiction were published in the book forms (6) only after they appeared in serial form in Andhra Prabha.

Bible Book Club has been changed to Bible Wiki's Bible Study program

Bible Book Club program has discontinued and instead replaced with Bible Wiki's Bible Study Program which you can check outhere here
"Attention members of the Bible Wiki Community (and any Christian or anyone who wants to read the Bible!). We would like introduce our brand new Bible Study Forum. We have created this forum to be able to host monthly book discussions on books of the Bible chosen by Admins (of course suggestions are welcome). The goal of this is to increase interaction as a community of Christians, but most of all to help people in trying to read the Bible and becoming comfortable with it. Sadly many do not read their Bibles, or many find it difficult. Reading one's Bible is a very critical part of furthering your faith, and is highly commended by the Bible itself[1] (that's a lot of verses). 

Also since this community is lacking of people who understand and are willing to read the Bible, we cannot have a collaborative bible study tool, nor can the Gospel be shared very well[2]. So it is in the best interests of everyone that we begin this program. Jesus Himself speaks of how those who read their Bible will be rewarded[3]. We also have lack of content for the amount within the Bible, and do not have the rich Bible study enviroment we are looking for. 
This is how the program will work: a semi-random book of the Bible selected by the Admins will be picked to read. Then viewers should particapte by reading that book of the Bible on a daily basis until the reading is complete. Along the way questions, thoughts, or convictions can be shared on the appropiate thread. Then while or after reading content relevant to the book should be created. The books that will be chosen will primairly be historical accounts, as they are often more clear, have an easier context, and are easier to read. We also want you to encourage to dive into reading outside of this program but this is help people become acquainted with the Scripture. In the end it is through the Holy Spirit understanding of the Bible is obtained[4]. I hope and pray everyone who sees this thread is willing to join in with us on the monthly reading. I hope that you carve out the time each day to make one of the most important investments you will ever make in your life, biblical literacy. The world is lacking of biblical literacy and without the Gospel cannot be effectively shared and the goal of our ministry will be that much harder.
In Christ,
Superdadsuper, Bible Wiki Administrator and Bureaucrat"
