As we contemplate these Legendary Tales we spot a pattern, a thread, or some map of how the various characters in these tales map into our own Life’s Journey.
That contemplation is the most important part of reading these tales, because the original Rishis who narrate these tales have taken pains to slightly sculpt the characters, and broadly captured the plot, so as to indicate their import for all of Humanity’s journeys in Life.
Very likely they were enacted in auditoriums in the forests and towns, on open stages and inside caves, by traveling actors too, and as they went along in their travels they added local embellishments to their tale. What a trip it must have been!
