Hiranyakashipu and Hiranyaksha; One wanted his idol or painting hung in every home and worshipped. The other took the Mother Earth Underwater.
Today we have two such Asuras: Moodasura and Meetasura, this duo have this Nation in their Grasp.
Sura means to be in Harmony, Asura means Disharmony. One is Light, the other Darkness. One is Knowledge the other Ignorance.
The main cause of Ignorance is the Shield of Ego or Ahankar, that separates atma from paramatma.
(derived from the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa)
