I wonder how much do we know about our God about which we hear through folk stories that has been passed down the generation as part of the Indian culture.
Would It surprised you when you come across story that makes the same God act immorally in order to have advantage over the demons that threaten their prowess.
Came across one such story which makes me wonder if at all God to whom we worship are no different than us humans, who make mistakes and then make amends.
Of late, have been watching Devon Ke Dev Mahadev soap on TV, when I came across the story of Jalandhar.
Had never heard of the story before but did wonder if it’s the same name of the place in Punjab.
The weird part of the story was that a win over the demon could only be possible when the chastity of his wife, devoted to Lord Vishnu was broken. For which, Lord Vishnu appear before her in the disguise of her husband. You can read more about it at this link.
The demon was defeated after that. The question that arises is the way and the length Gods went to win the war. Is it acceptable? Does that mean that everything is fair in the game of life if you are trying to win it?
It also makes me question Indra, the god of the Gods, who has done most of the vices done by humans. Yet he continues to remain the God that he is.
I guess questions are all that I have which is in need of answers. If you have any, please do share your thoughts.
