Chandrahas is the moon blade (sword) from Hindu mythology given to Ravana by Lord Shiva. Ravana accidentally disturbed Lord Shiva's home in Mount Kailash and Shiva pinned him to the ground with his little toe. Ravana atoned for his intrusion by composing and singing songs that praised Shiva for several years, until finally Shiva released him. Shiva was actually quite pleased with his devotion and granted him the Chandrahas (Moon Blade) in addition to naming him Ravana or "of the terrifying roar". He was warned that if the sword was used for an unjust cause, the sword would return to Shiva and Ravana end would be near.

Ravana eventually ruled over all of the human and divine races in Hindu mythology, and is the primary antagonist in the Ramayana. In the epic he used the sword to kill Jatayu and the Chandrahas returned to Shiva.

did ravana misuse this, and how did it return back to shiva

Comment From: sector24 --

Great question, loknath! Ravana used the sword to kill Jatayu in the Ramayana and the sword disappeared. It was in a way the harbinger of his inevitable demise at the hands of Rama. I have updated the article to provide a little more information.

No matter how old the post may be, your cmenomt is more than welcome here! It's always a pleasure to meet other Shivanauts! I picked it up really fast too, and that's one of my big frustrations with my practice: it seems that I am unable to do whatever I'd have to do in order to make it hard enough but it's all part of the game, and that's Shiva Nata's sneaky way to make me work on some big patterns of mine :)Don't hesitate to jump ahead and play with the other levels, to go back and forth between them and keep things fun (and hard!). These days, I'm playing with levels 1 to 5, depending on my mood, and I've even invented a new one somewhere in the middle of those a few days ago.There are several Shivanauts in the UK, and I've even met one of them in person! Maybe you could ask about them in a cmenomt on the Shiva Nata blog, or in a personal ad on Havi's blog. You could also keep your eyes open for them in the cmenomts on Havi's blog people sometimes mention they are Shivanauts, and then you can click through to their blog and find out where they are. Or come hang out with us on Twitter, you'd quickly find quite a few of them there!
