Transcript

  • 1. About Quizot Thousand of questions across multiple topics! Questions compiled from Quizot.com
  • 2. Question 1 In Hindu Mythology, what is the name the vehicle of Ravana in which he could fly to any destination and which had unlimited seating capacity?
  • 3. Answer 1 Pushpaka Vimana It is the first flying vimana mentioned in existing Hindu mythology texts (as distinct from the gods' flying horse-drawn chariots). Pushpaka was originally made by Vishwakarma for Brahma, the Hindu god of creation; later Brahma gave it to Kubera, the God of wealth; but it was later stolen, along with Lanka, by his half-brother, king Ravana.
  • 4. Question 2 X was a soul-eating goddess in Egyptian Mythology. She was depicted with the head of a crocodile, the forequarters of a lion and the hindquarters of a hippopotamus. X would sit beside Ma’at at the Hall of Two Truths and would eat the souls that were full of sin and weighed heavier than the feather of Ma’at. Give X ?
  • 5. Answer 2 Ammit
  • 6. Question 3 In greek mythology, who gave fire to man,and as a result was chained to rock and had his liver eaten out daily?
  • 7. Answer 3 Prometheus Prometheus was the Titan god of forethought and crafty counsel who was entrusted with the task of moulding mankind out of clay. His attempts to better the lives of his creation brought him into direct conflict with Zeus. Firstly he tricked the gods out of the best portion of the sacrificial feast, acquiring the meat for the feasting of man. Then, when Zeus withheld fire, he stole it from heaven and delivered it to mortal kind hidden inside a fennel- stalk. As punishment for these rebellious acts, Zeus ordered the creation of Pandora (the first woman) as a means to deliver misfortune into the house of man, or as a way to cheat mankind of the company of the good spirits. Prometheus meanwhile, was arrested and bound to a stake on Mount Kaukasos where an eagle was set to feed upon his ever-regenerating liver (or, some say, heart). Generations later the great hero Herakles came along and released the old Titan from his torture.
  • 8. Question 4 In Hindu mythology, X is regarded as the mother of all cows. She is not worshipped independently as such, and temples are not dedicated to her alone ; rather she is honoured by veneration of cows in general. Identify X.
  • 9. Answer 4 Kamdhenu Kamadhenu, is a divine bovine-goddess described in Hindu Religion as the mother of all cows.
