 Deity Name : Ravana
In Hindu mythology, Ravana is the principal antagonist of the Hindu epic, the Ramayana. According to Ramayana, he was a king of Lanka many thousands of years ago.

Ravana is depicted in art with up to ten heads, signifying that he had knowledge spanning all the ten directions.

Ravana was born Dasagriva (One with Ten Heads) the son of the sage Visrawasa by his wife Kaikasi, a rakshasa princess.The name Ravana (One of Terrifying Roar) was given to him by Lord Shiva.

Despite possessing aggressive tendencies as a young man, Dasagriva becomes an exemplary scholar of the Vedas and religious knowledge under the coaching of his pious father.

As a young man, Ravana proceeds to perform a terrible tapas to Brahma, the Creator, lasting several thousand years. Upon Brahma's appearance, he asks a boon of him, namely, immortality. Brahma refuses him this boon, upon which he asks for supreme invulnerability when facing gods, demons, serpents and wild beasts. In his contempt for mortal men, he refuses to ask for protection from them. Brahma grants him the same, and additionally, great power by way of knowledge of divine weaponry and sorcery.
