Mahabharata of Life

Mahabharata of Life

Every one of us wage Mahabharata war at all crucial moments. The Kauravas (negative forces) are more than the Pandavas (divine forces). And the guiding force, the Self is our Krishna. Our mind is our Kurukshetra. In the light of consciousness of the Self we choose our path of Sat (eternal) and Asat (intermittent). With open eyes we shall walk on right path of light and with delusion (moha) of blindness we lend up in darkness.

It is interesting to note the correlation between the Rigveda and the Mahabharata. Rigveda talks about two queens, the queens of day light and the queen of night. The day light queen Usha (Kunti) (dawn) (awakening) gives birth to four Mantra Children Karna, Yudhisthira, Bhima, Arjun; through four deities of the Rigveda (Sun, Yama, Vayu, Indra) and her co-wife Madri (Sandhya) (dusk) gives birth to two children Sahdeva and Nakul through the two deities of Rigveda, the two Ashwini Kumars. And all these six children carry the power and characteristics of their father deities. The queen of night Gandhari marrying to a blind man, deliver 100 children through the dark pots, who walk on the path of Asat. They last till they had the strength of the first son of the day queen Karna.

We are all active on our Kshetra (the field of objective and subjective mind) with the strength of our Kshetragna (self) (the knower) (the witness) and decide our path of good or bad acts (karma).

O God, give me the strength to walk on the path of Sat, the righteousness.
