I just think it depends on what we believe.Smile Some people connect to the "real Sita" concept more while some people connect with the "chhaya Sita" concept.
 
Personally, I believe the real Sita was kidnapped. I find the Chhaya Sita concept hard to believe because then, the suffering of Ram and Sita was all fake.Ermm I feel like we all can learn a lot from their suffering and how they bore their pain, and to think that it was all a drama for others to see doesn't hold with me.
 
So when Sita blesses Hanuman in Sundar Kand, it was a fake Sita who blessed him?Stern Smile Then how can that blessing be real? The Sundar Kand is really special to me and I don't want to imagine that it was Chhaya Sita who blessed Hanuman.
 
Although Sita Haran is very painful for devotees, I still prefer to think it's the real Sita who was kidnapped. I can connect more with the characters that way.

What exactly does Chhaya mean? It translates to "shadow" right? So does that mean it was Sita's shadow that Ravan kidnapped? If it was another aspect of Sita Ma, then why would the real Sita go with Agni Dev? It wouldn't really make a difference, would it? If the explanation was that Ravan would not be able to touch the real Sita, how could he touch her Chhaya if it was another aspect of her?
 
I guess this is what confuses me about this version. I'd rather believe that it was the real Sita who was kidnapped by Ravan. It's more simple and meaningful that way, at least for me.

As others have said, it depends upon which is your favourite version of Ramayan, and you are free to choose your favourite. But as nneeiill said (bit tricky, typing her username correctly), real or chaya, simply doesn't matter. Big smile
