Rakshasha Description in Mahabharata

People,

As follows is a description of a Rakshasha from the Mahabharata, Chapter Hidimba-Vadha Parva: The Mahabharata, Book 1: Adi Parva: Hidimva-vadha Parva: Section CLIV

Don't forget to click on the "Next Section" at the bottom and, after you read that part, you'll click on the "Next Section" again until the chapter ends.

You'll see that Rakshashas have pointed ears, that they live in trees, they like to eat human flesh and drink frothy blood (like a vampire or chupa cabra), they are shape-shifters and that they fly very swiftly in the sky.

Do check it out.

Cheers!

"In the Kali-yuga demons take birth in the families of brahmins." (From the Varaha Purana)

And they also engage in shapeshifting, possession of souls, and they often live in the White House.

Cheers!
