Hinduism - Who Is Lava In Hindu Mythology?

 


Lava is one of the twin sons of Rama, the epic's protagonist, in the Ramayana, the earlier of the two major Indian epics.

Lava is born in the typical manner after their mother, Sita, is exiled to the ashram of the guru Valmiki.

Valmiki mysteriously creates his sibling, Kusha, out of kusha grass.

Lava and Kusha later accompany Valmiki to Rama's court at Ayodhya.

They first read the epic poem written by Valmiki, the Ramayana, at Rama's court.

Rama splits his kingdom between Lava and Kusha when he relinquishes his reign.
