Ancient wisdom: PRITHVI-SUKTA: HYMN TO THE EARTH (ATHARVA VEDA)
PRITHVI-SUKTA: HYMN TO THE EARTH (ATHARVA VEDA), compiled and written down c. 1200–900 BCE, in oral tradition from eons back. Truth, high and potent Law, the Consecrating Rite, Fervour, Brahma, and Sacrifice uphold the Earth. May she, the Queen of all that is and is to be, may Prithivī make ample space and room for us. || 1 Not overcome by the crowd of Manu’s sons, she who hath many heights and floods and level plains; She who bears plants endowed with many varied powers, may Prithivī for us spread wide and favour us. || 2 In whom the sea, and Sindhu, and the waters, in whom our food and corn-lands had their being, In whom this all that breathes and moves is active, this Earth, assign us
Ancient Wisdom: Bhandasura
“Bhandasura was a demon created from the ashes of Kamadeva by Chitrakarma. This character makes his appearance in, and is the main antagonist of the Lalitopakyanam, part of Brahma Purana.

For obvious reason, no god, man or demon dared to attack him. He
Ancient Wisdom: Tripurasura
“Tripurasura (Sanskrit: त्रिपुरासुर) is a trio of asura brothers named Tarakaksha, Vidyunmāli and Kamalaksha, who were the sons of the asura Tarakasura. These three began to perform tapasya. For a hundred years they meditated standing only on one leg. For a thousand more years they lived on air and meditated. They stood on their heads and meditated in this posture for yet another thousand years. Brahma was pleased at this difficult tapasya. He appeared before them and said, "What boon do you want?" "Make us immortal", answered Tarakasura's sons. "I can’t make you immortal", replied Brahma. "I don’t have the power. Ask for something else instead". "Very well", then, said Tarakaksha, Vidyunmā
