Real interpretation of Mahabharata and Gita- Have you wondered why it’s so relevant in a man’s life?

It is said in the texts that 80% of the fighting male population of the civilization was wiped out in the eighteen days Mahabharata war.

Sanjay, at the end of the war went to the spot where the greatest war took place; Kurukshetra.

He looked around and wondered if the war really happened, if the ground beneath him had soaked all that blood, if the great Pandavas and Krishna stood where he stood.

“You will never know the truth about that!” said an aging soft voice.

Sanjay turned around to find an Old man in saffron robes appearing out of a column of dust.

“I know you are here to find out about the Kurukshetra war, but you cannot know about that war till you know what the real war is about.” the Old man said enigmatically.

“What do you mean?”

The Mahabharata is an Epic, a ballad, perhaps a reality, but definitely a philosophy.

The Old man smiled luring Sanjay into more questions.

“Can you tell me what the philosophy is then?”
Sanjay requested.

Sure, began the Old man.

The Pandavas are nothing but your five senses,
sight,
smell,
taste,
touch
and sound…,

and do you know what the Kauravas are?
he asked narrowing his eyes.

The Kauravas are the hundred vices that attack your senses everyday but you can fight them… and do you know how?

Sanjay shook his head again.

“When Krishna rides your chariot!”

The Old man smiled brighter and Sanjay gasped at that gem of insight.

Krishna is your inner voice, your soul, your guiding light and if you let your life in his hands you have nothing to worry.

Sanjay was stupefied but came around quickly with another question.

“Then why are Dronacharya and Bhishma fighting for the Kauravas, if they are vices?”

The Old man nodded, sadder for the question.

It just means that as you grow up, your perception of your elders change. The elders who you thought were perfect in your growing up years are not all that perfect. They have faults. And one day you will have to decide if they are for your good or your bad. Then you may also realize that you may have to fight them for the good. It is the hardest part of growing up and that is why the Geeta is important.

Sanjay slumped down on the ground, not because he was tired but because he could understand and was struck by the enormity of it all.

What about Karna? he whispered.

“Ah!” said the Old man. “You have saved the best for last. Karna is the brother to your senses, he is desire, he is a part of you but stands with the vices. He feels wronged and makes excuses for being with the vices as your desire does all the time.

Does your desire not give you excuses to embrace vices?”

Sanjay nodded silently. He looked at the ground, consumed with a million thoughts, trying to put everything together and then when he looked up the Old man was gone….
disappeared in the column of dust………leaving behind the great philosophy of Life!

Palindromic Sentence – The beauty and knowledge of ancient Indian Sages – Slokas when read from the start are the story of Ramayana and when read in the inverse order are the story from the Mahabharata.

The sentence ‘Able was I ere I saw Elba’ is often quoted as a great example of a palindromic sentence in English as it can be read in reverse too. This is said to be created in the 17th century.

Now, consider the following:

A Sanskrit poet by name Daivagjna Surya Pandita wrote a Sanskrit work by name “Ramakrishna Viloma Kaavyam” in the 14th century (English-equivalent of the word ‘viloma’ is ‘inverse’). This book is supposed to have 40 slokas (a sloka is a Sanskrit poem). Each sloka makes sense both when read in from the beginning of the sloka to the end AS WELL AS from the end to the beginning of the sloka (a sort of palindrome).

Now comes the best part. When each sloka is read in the forward direction, the book deals with the story of Ramayana and when each sloka is read in the reverse direction, the book deals with the story of Maha Bharata.

One sloka is given below (in devanagari font)

तां भूसुता मुक्ति मुदारहासं
वंदेयतो लव्य भवं दयाश्री

The same sloka, read in backward direction is given below:

श्री यादवं भव्य लतोय देवं
संहारदामुक्ति मुता सुभूतां

In the first sloka, भूसुता implies Sita and hence, Ramayana story and in the second sloka, श्री यादवं implies Lord Krishna.

The meaning of the first sloka is “I pray to Sita, the incarnation of Lakshmi who is affectionate towards a smiling Lava (Sita’s son)”.

The meaning of the second sloka is “The teachings of Gita, bestowed upon us by Lord Krishna who draws people towards him with his benevolence, destroy evil and are close to our heart”

And there are 39 more slokas like this.

“Meditation — sitting still and thinking nothing — has a lot of benefits, is stupidly simple and surprisingly hard.

Its goal is to quieten your mind long enough so you can connect to the Source Energy and listen in on your inner guidance. It brings you into the present moment, raises your frequency, opens you up to receiving unlimited information and ideas, relaxes you, relieves stress, strengthens your intuition and your ability to focus, allows you to hear your inner voice more clearly, fills you with light and love, puts you in a good mood and helps you love yourself.

So, learn to meditate. It will do you a world of really good.

When you think about how well-planned and smooth-running the universe you live in is, you can’t help but realize that it didn’t just begin randomly. It was created by an intelligent mind — a Universal Intelligence.

Everything in nature has a place and a purpose, and it works together in its intricately interwoven and compatible way. The Universal Intelligence or the Source Energy is incredibly smart.

Your mind works like that of the Source Energy. Your thoughts are the most powerful tools that you have. You think, so you are able to create awesomeness. Your thoughts essentially equate to your reality. To think what you want to think is to think the truth, regardless of appearances. Your thoughts and your beliefs change your reality, so if you want to change your reality, change your beliefs.

The moment you have the audacity to start believing in the not-yet-seen, your reality will begin to shift. Note that it is not your job to know how your dream reality will be created.

Your job is to know what dream reality you want and to be open to discovering and receiving how you will go about creating it.

“An educated person is one who knows how to acquire everything he needs in the attainment of his main purpose of life, without violating the rights of others.”

A man may become a walking encyclopedia of knowledge without possessing any power of value. This knowledge becomes power only to the extent that it is organized, classified and put into action. Some of the best educated men the world has known possessed much less general knowledge than some who have been known as fools, the difference between the two being that the former put what knowledge they possessed into use while the latter made no such application.

For eg. the successful lawyer is not necessarily the one who memorizes the greatest number of principles of law. on the contrary, the successful lawyer is the one who knows where to find the principle of law, plus a variety of opinions supporting that principle which fit the immediate needs of a given case. In other words, the successful lawyer is he who knows where to find the law he wants, when he needs it.

Henry Ford had but little elementary schooling, yet he is one of the best “educated” men in the world because he has acquired the ability so to combine natural and economic laws, to say nothing of the minds of men, that he has the power to get anything of a material nature he wants.

Swami Vivekanand also said, “Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and run riot there, undigested all your life. We must have life building, man making, character making, and assimilation of ideas. We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one’s own feet.”

Millions of people falsely believe that “Knowledge is Power.”

Knowledge is only potential power. It becomes power only when, it is organized into definite plans of action and directed to a definite end.

An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or it’s equivalent, without violating the rights of others.

Henry Ford once said, “Why I should clutter up my mind with general knowledge, for the purpose of being able to answer questions, when I have men around me who can supply any knowledge I require?”

Through the assistance of his ‘Master Mind’ group, Henry Ford had at his command all the specialized knowledge he needed to enable him to become one of the wealthiest men in America. It was not essential that he have this knowledge in his own mind.

Before you can be sure of your ability to transmute desire into its monetary equivalent, you will require specialized knowledge of service, merchandise, or profession which you intend to offer in return for fortune.

The self discipline one receives rom a definite programme of specialized study makes up to some extent, for the wasted opportunity when knowledge was available without cost. Correspondence schools insist upon prompt payments, whether the student makes good grades or poor, has the effect of causing one to follow through with the course when he would otherwise drop it, giving the greatest lesson on decision, promptness, action and the habit of finishing that which one begins.

Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps, some failure.

When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to Quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do.

Failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning. It takes great delight in tripping one when success is almost within reach.

More than 500 of the most successful men told Mr. Hill, the author of “Think and Grow Rich” that their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them.
