Saurabh: Does sahasra also means “one”. In the shloka of Ramayana, In Baalkanda, when Dashrath resists from sending Ram with Vishwamitra, “shashtirvarshasahasraani Jaatasya mam kaushik.
Dukhenotpaaditashchaayam na raamam netumarhasi. The first word means sixty years , then what for is SAHASRAANI placed in the word?
Swami Ram Swarup: You see, you have already written, which is also correct that one sahastra(1000) means one year. So, Shashtivarshsahastranni=60,000 years i.e., 60 years.
Anonymous: Ramayana me kitni chopaiyan hoti hain?
Swami Ram Swarup: Sorry, being lengthy task, I am unable to count as my life is extremely busy in daily routine spiritual task.
