  1. The Swedish Royal family was out in full force for this visit and looking very excellent, all of them. Even Princess Madeline and Chris O’Neil were there! The Queen and the First Lady of Korea were so well coordinated at the banquet. Judging by them, it looked as if both countries were in synchronization- which I guess is the whole idea behind a state visit. I wonder if Queen Silvia and the First Lady spoke in French with each other. They seemed to be speaking to each other very animatedly.

  2. Are Koreans proud of their lineage to Rama ? Y ? I thought Koreans read history and follow Mahayana Buddhism !

    Is Rama the role Model of the Koreans ?

    How can a Korean or a Hindoo even consider Rama as a God or a Prophet or a Messenger or a Seer

    Rama told Sita that he saved her for HIS HONOUR and not for the HONOUR AND DIGNITY OR SEETA OR A WOMAN

    Book VI : Yuddha Kanda – Book Of War

    Chapter [Sarga] 115

    विदितश्चास्तु भद्रं ते योऽयं रणपरिश्रमः |
    सुतीर्णः सुहृदां वीर्यान्न त्वदर्थं मया कृतः || ६-११५-१५
    रक्षता तु मया वृत्तमपवादम् च सर्वतः |
    प्रख्यातस्यात्मवंशस्य न्यङ्गं च परिमार्जता || ६-११५-१६

    “Let it be known to you that this endeavor in the shape of war, which has been successful carried through, due to the strength of my friends was not undertaken for your sake. Let there be prosperity to you! This was done by me in order to keep up my good conduct and to wipe off the evil-speaking from all sides as well as the insinuation on my own illustrious dynasty.”

    यत्कर्तव्यं मनुष्येण धर्षणां प्रतिमार्जता |
    तत्कृतं रावणं हत्वा मयेदं मानकाङ्क्क्षिणा || ६-११५-१३

    “I, wanting for an honour, have done this particular act, which ought to be done by a man, in killing Ravana and thus wiping away the insult meted out to me.”

    निर्जिता जीवलोकस्य तपसा भावितात्मना |
    अगस्त्येन दुराधर्षा मुनिना दक्षिणेव दिक् || ६-११५-१४

    “You have been won by me, whose mind stands purified by asceticism as the southern quarter, which was difficult to be approached by the world of mortals, was conquered by the Sage Agastya.”

    गतोऽस्म्यन्तममर्षस्य धर्षणा संप्रमार्जिता |
    अवमानश्च शत्रश्च युगपन्निहतौ मया || ६-११५-३

    “I have come to the end of my indignation and my outrage has been completely requited as also the contempt against the enemy have been wiped out, all at once, by me.”

    अद्य मे पौरुषं दृष्टमद्य मे सफलः श्रमः |
    अद्य तीर्णप्रतिज्ञोऽहं प्रभवाम्यद्य चात्मनः || ६-११५-४

    “Now, my manly strength has been seen by all. Today, my toil has borne fruit. Now, I have fulfilled my promise. Today, I am the master of myself.”


  3. South Koreans claim that their race and the royal family is lineaged from Rama of the Hindoo land of India

    Are Koreans proud of their lineage to Rama ? Y ? I thought Koreans read history and follow Mahayana Buddhism !

    Is Rama the role Model of the Koreans ?

    How can a Korean or a Hindoo even consider Rama as a God or a Prophet or a Messenger or a Seer

    Rama told Sita to whore herself- this is in the Valmiki Ramayana

    Chapter [Sarga] 115

    तद्गच्छ त्वानुजानेऽद्य यथेष्टं जनकात्मजे |
    एता दश दिशो भद्रे कार्यमस्ति न मे त्वया || ६-११५-१८

    “O Seetha! That is why, I am permitting you now. Go wherever you like. All these ten directions are open to you, my dear lady! There is no work to be done to me, by you.”

    तदद्य व्याहृतं भद्रे मयैतत् कृतबुद्धिना |
    लक्ष्मणे वाथ भरते कुरु बुद्धिं यथासुखम् || ६-११५-२२

    “O gracious lady! Therefore, this has been spoken by me today, with a resolved mind. Set you mind on Lakshmana or Bharata, as per your ease.”

    įatrughne vätha sugréve räkņase vä vibhéņaëe |
    niveįaya manaų séte yathä vä sukhamätmanaų || 6-115-23

    “O Seetha! Otherwise, set your mind either on Shatrughna or on Sugreeva or on Vibhishana the demon; or according to your own comfort.”
