It is not part of traditional Sanskrit orthography, transliteration or transcription, but we supply it here to guide readers in the pronunciation of these unfamiliar words. Since no Sanskrit word is accented on the last syllable it is not necessary to accent disyllables, e. The second CSL innovation designed to assist the reader in the pronunciation of lengthy unfamiliar words is to insert an unobtrusive middle dot between semantic word breaks in compound names provided the word break does not fall on a vowel resulting from the fusion of two vowelse. The deep layering of Sanskrit narrative has also dictated that we use quotation marks only to announce the beginning and end of every direct speech, and not at the beginning of every paragraph.
It is not surprising to find many common fairy tales in Katha Sarita Sagara. It is said that Soma Deva composed it to entertain the queen Suryamati suryamatiithe wife of king Anantadeva anantadevaso that she can devote more time to worldly matters than worshipping Lord Shiva.
Katha Sarita Sagara stands in contrast with other Indian Sanskrit scriptures. Almost all Sanskrit text teach or promote an ethical life and moral code of conduct for all.
In contrast to these almost all stories in Katha Sarita Sagara talk about earthly living, earthly pleasure and fantacy. Katha Sarita Sagara is a collection of hundreds of stories tied together through a complex web of different stories tied together in threads.
The very first introduction chapter Katha Pitha mentions about seven volumes of Brihad Katha, written by a scholar named Gunadhya guNaadhyaaya and presented to King Salivahana saalivaahana.
However the King does not approve these stories as these were written in Paisachi paisaachi language and not in Sanskrit. Disheartened Gunadhya then starts burning these volumes, after telling the stories to animals in the forest. However finally King Salivahana reads the last remaining volume and saves it from being burnt.
He translates it into Sanskrit and names it as Brihad Katha. Though Brihad Katha is not available today, there are enough compelling evidences to justify that it was existing and was famous in Indian literature. Many of the stories are derived from stories in Ramayana, Mahabharata, Puranas, and historical events etc.
However almost all the original stories have been altered and written to form the thread of stories in Katha Sarita Sagara than the original story or event. The famous stories from Betal Pachisi are also available in Katha Sarita Sagara as part of a larger thread of stories.
Most of the characters in the stories are vidyaadharas or deme-gods, and similar non-human characters. Concepts like boons, curses, re-birth, devine help, magical power etc. In fact these play an important role in giving a completely new dimension to the different level of stories in which characters from an outer level story can appear in a deeper level story as a different character and tell stories about themselves.
The Katha Pitha of Katha Sarita Sagara itself gives an insight into the magical stories that are part of it. It starts with request of Goddess Parvati to Lord Shiva to tell her some story which has never been told before. Lord Shiva tells the magical stories about the seven vidyadhara princes as their life is more interesting than the human beings or Gods.
His retainer Nandi nandi guards the place and no one else is allowed to enter. However after being denied entry by Nandi, Pushpadanta pushpadanta one of the retainers gaNa of Lord Shiva takes an invisible form and entes the place out of curiosity.
He listens to these enchanting magical stories and later narrates them to his wife Jaya jayaa. She in turns tells those stories to Goddess Parvati.
Goddess Parvati gets angry thinking that Lord Shiva has told her stories that even a servant knows. However, after knowing the actual events, she curses Pushpadanta to become a mortal on earth.
Same fate awaits Maalyavaan maalyavaan another retainer who tries to side with Pushpadanta. After lot of request from them she puts the conditions to get back their former forms.
Pushpadanta is to narrate the stories to Suppratika supratika another retainer who has become a demon under some earlier curse. This will end the curse on Pushpadanta.
Suppratika is to narrate the stories to Maalyavaan and get back his former position. Malyavaan gets the most difficult task of spreading the stores on earth before getting back his original form.
As the flow of events occur, Varuruchi narates the stories to Kanabhuti kaaNabhuti the deamon Suppratika under curseand gets freed from the curse. Similarly Kanabhuti narrates the stories to Gunadhyaya and becomes free from the curse. Later Gunadhyaya writes these stories in Paisachi language and presents to king Salivahana.Tatva Sanshay Nivaran.
