The others convince him he must rule and fulfill his duty. Stubborn but loyal, Karna could have been king, as eldest of the Pandavas, but he remained with the Kauravas. Bhagabata is one of the oriya ebooks published by www.odia.org. Books 11-18 of the Mahabharata contain events following the war and teachings by Bhishma. The Danavas (a family of demons) need him as their champion (he was born at their request) and appear before him. I refuse greed.” (CN 55). Mahabharata VOL 3 – Vana Parva II, 428 pages, 25 MB. Krishna warns Bhishma not to interfere with the dice game: “If your race must be destroyed to save dharma, would you allow it?” (play) Told by his father that a warrior’s dharma is to fight honorably, not to win at all costs, Duryodhana says,  “The way of the warrior is fixed on victory, whether there’s dharma or adharma on his way.”. “Actions performed in accordance with scriptural injunctions … lead the performer to the heavenly planets for prolonged sensual enjoyment. Both sides agree to abide by certain rules of war: no fighting humans with celestial weapons, no fighting at night, do not strike someone who’s retreating or unarmed, or on the back or legs. Amba practiced asceticism, standing on one toe in the snow for 12 years to learn the secret of Bhishma’s death. Draupadi is about to be stripped naked when she invokes Krishna, who comes to her rescue and creates an endless supply of cloth around her. However, whereas Yuyutsu prospered under the protection of the Pandavas, Durdasa perished. This makes it eight times as long as Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey together, and over three times as long as the Bible (Chaitanya vii). According to the Narasimhan version, only about 4000 lines relate to the main story; the rest contain additional myths and teachings. It is the original Odia Bhagabata written by Atibadi Jagannath Das. He refuses to leave a creature so faithful, and is permitted to enter, for this was a test, the dog was the god Dharma in disguise. It would be morally revolting to swallow Krishna’s description of him. Yudhishthira reports the death toll at six million. Since it is obvious that Shakuni cheated at dice, wouldn’t it be better to stand up and fight? She swears that one day she will be avenged. A chastened Gandhari obeyed without a word. This was how Durdasa’s story began. Duryodhana is so depressed after his rescue that he intends to kill himself. "Mahabharata" is a story that communicates Vedic Ideas such as dharma and karma. Mahabharata Characters The story of Duryodhana In the Hindu epic the Mahābhārata, Duryodhana (दुर्योधन) is the eldest son of the blind king Dhritarashtra by Queen Gandhari, the eldest of the one hundred Kaurava brothers, and the chief antagonist of the Pandavas. Best known for three Odia books — Mahabharata, Vilanka Ramayana and Chandi Purana — he was the first scholar to write in Odia. At this point Arjuna returns to the camp. In the first two books of the Mahabharata, we learn the background of the Bharatas (also called the Kurus) leading up to the conflict between the five sons of Pandu and their cousins the Kauravas. Dharma (variously translated as social duty, righteousness, or universal order) is the moral obligation which each human being should recognize and follow. The Pandavas and Draupadi are condemned to spend twelve years in exile in the forest, and a thirteenth year in an unknown place, disguised so that no one may recognize them. One can hardly find a village in Orissa, where there is no Bhagabata Ghara and a house, where Jagannatha Dass unique creation Bhagabat is neither worshipped nor recited. Ever the gambler, Yudhishthira tells Duryodhana that he can fight any brother he chooses, and if he wins, the kingdom will be his again. Amba then vows that one day she will kill him, even though the gods have granted Bhishma the power to choose the day of his death, because of his vow. Carried away by the intoxication of the game, Yudhishthira wagers and loses all that he possesses: his lands, his kingdom, his brothers, even himself, and eventually Draupadi, who is dragged before the company by her hair, a special insult since a married woman’s hair was sacred. Arjuna counters with his own weapon, which Drona taught both of them; it was only to be used against divine beings, or else it could destroy the world. In his dying speech, pierced by many arrows, Bhishma tells Yudhishthira that in the fourth age (our present age), “dharma becomes adharma and adharma, dharma.” Somewhat paradoxically, he continues, “If one fights against trickery, one should oppose him with trickery. It appears that you were born in this world only recently.” Krishna explains, birth too is an illusion, as men are born countless times. Each of the 12 volumes is about 500 pages and they are huge files, so please be patient when downloading. When the event took place, he probably was too surprised and too shocked to react, and things had happened too fast.

Bhishma allows her to leave, but her betrothed does not want her any more. [70] She challenges the Kauravas with a question: how can someone who has lost himself wager someone else in a game, but no one can answer her. … His mind is fixed upon the Supreme and he is always peaceful.” (KD 551), There are two paths to liberation: renunciation (, Krishna explains that the knowledge he imparts is ancient, just as he told it millions of years ago. After Karna was born, Kunti remained a virgin, In the medieval Puranas, the story developed that Vishnu had appeared on earth nine times in the past as an avatar or incarnation, in order to set the world back on the right path, and would appear again at the end of the age. In this context the great Odia Poet Sarala Das comes to mind. Krishna tells Yudhishthira: “Under such circumstances, falsehood is preferable to truth. Duryodhana will not listen to warnings. Kunti: “Duryodhana is a blind man’s son, living blindly.” (play), In the Medieval Puranas, Parasurama becomes one of the avatars of Vishnu, but there is no indication of that aspect in the, Unlike many epic heroes, at this point Arjuna thinks before he acts. “Victory and defeat, pleasure and pain are all the same. For months afterward, they live in hiding in the forest. As an originator of Odia literature, his work has formed an enduring source of information for succeeding generations. Act, but don’t reflect on the fruits of the act. Ignoring counsel of his brothers, he had gone there alone and weaponless. Our proper duty is surely to forgive them. Vyasa appears infrequently throughout the Mahabharata, giving advice and also fathering Pandu and Dhritarashtra. But she really deserves no sympathy because she was by no means weak, with the kind of weapon she knew she had, namely her fiery glance, from which there was no protection. To the dead, victory and defeat are the same” (CN 101). After the war, when Krishna exits the chariot, it bursts into flames; only his presence kept the celestial weapons from destroying it earlier. Vyasa’s mother is Satyavati, whose name means truth, so he is the “son of truth.” In telling his story to a descendant of the Pandavas, Vyasa says, “If you listen carefully, at the end you’ll be someone else” (play). A bright light rises out of Karna’s body and enters the sun. Krishna allows even the blind Dhritarashtra to see his glory.

To a bewildered and frightened Yudhisthira, Durdasa said that he had no cause for worry as long as he was alive. Rejoicing, they lay down their arms, leaving Jayadratha vulnerable to Arjuna’s arrow. Like an irrevocable vow, her statement, even by mistake, can’t be undone, so all five brothers marry Draupadi, the daughter of Drupada. S. Khandekar's Marathi novel, Yayati (1960), and Girish Karnad's debut play Yayati (1961) are based on the story of King Yayati found in the Mahabharat. Mahabharat is his magnum opus. Arjuna wins the archery contest easily and Draupadi chooses him. One must never refuse a brahmin anything (see the incident between Karna and Indra below). Ignoring the strict rules of caste, he says, “Birth is obscure and men are like rivers whose origins are often unknown” (play). Years later, Pandu one day surrenders to his passion for Madri. But Karna reveals himself to be a warrior by an excess of bravery, as he does not cry out when a worm bores a hole into his thigh. He sees that life itself is painful, as men are always searching for more material wealth and power, never satisfied. Yudhishthira speaks a half-lie, “Ashvatthama – (and muttering under his breath) the elephant – is dead.” Before his lie, Yudhishthira’s chariot rode four inches off the ground, but now it sinks back to earth. Both Dhritarashtra and Yudhishthira ignore Vidura’s warning to avoid the game, leaving the results to “supreme and unavoidable” fate. When Yudhishthira learns of the massacre, he mourns: “We the conquerors have been conquered.”. As the Pandavas paid their obeisance to them, Gandhari could not control herself and charged them of killing innumerable people for the sake of kingdom. Krishna reveals his divine form: “Krishna laughed and as he did, his body suddenly flashed like lightning. However, Karna does not know his real mother, being raised by a chariot driver. Even though Yudhishthira forgives him, Arjuna insists on keeping the vow. Just Click on the below subjects to Download the PDF file of the books and. Kicaka, a general in Virata’s court becomes infatuated with Draupadi. The Mahabharata (compiled between 300 BC and 300 AD) has the honor of being the longest epic in world literature. Twitter's #ThisHappened2020 list reveals Vijay's tweet of a selfie with his fans and Virat Kohli's celebratory post announcing wife Anushka's pregnancy among the top tweets of the year. But he takes some comfort in knowing that Krishna cannot accomplish everything he wants, as he failed to arrange a peaceful solution to the conflict. On returning home, he learns that one of the sisters, Amba, had already chosen a suitor. He goes to great lengths to possess her, even threatening her life. Finally turning to Krishna, he orchestrated, and was the high priest at, what one can call the last sacrifice at the altar of the Mahabharata war. Portions of the following summary have been adapted from David Williams, Peter Brook and the Mahabharata: Critical Perspectives, 1991. As tension mounts between the cousins, Krishna makes his appearance. Even demons have their own castes and svadharma, which may run counter to human morality. Kunti tells the narrator Vyasa (in play): “You find too much beauty in men’s death. That end which is always sought by virtuous warriors is mine. However, no action can occur in these other worlds, so that a person’s karma doesn’t change until he returns to earth. If, as the knower of the past, the present and the future, Krishna knew something about him that damned him as the enemy of the Pandavas, he did not share it with others. If everything happens by the will of god, then why do the good suffer? Arjuna then spends five years with his father the divine Indra learning to use the weapons fighting demons. War draws even closer. Forget desire, seek detachment.” (play), Likewise, Yudhishthira told Draupadi during the exile that he performs, “Actions performed under the direct guidance of the Supreme Lord or His representative are called, “Such a person takes no delight in sensual pleasures. Drona continues to challenge the Pandava armies, slaying thousands. A suspicious Krishna quietly asked Sahadeva what her intentions were, and Sahadeva said that she wanted to destroy the Pandavas with her fiery glance. But one of Dhritarashtra’s advisors tells him: “O king, surely a man who meets with calamity as a result of his own acts should not blame the gods, destiny, or others. Yudhishthira accepts his offer in the hope of averting a war. 3 03 Mahabharat Aranyaka Parva Part 1 - SD Satwalekar 1960.pdf. In the darkness of the night, Duryodhana, rattled, scared, intensely lonely and blood all over his body, fled from the battlefield. Thus he remained the enemy, the. Duryodhana asks Karna to avenge his brother Duhsasana, and he finally meets Arjuna in the decisive confrontation. These 30 quotes from the epic Mahabharata will add some clarity to your life and make you see it with a different perspective. Stung by Durdasa’s decision and Krishna’s celebration of the same, Duryodhana ordered his army to attack both Durdasa and Yudhisthira, who was still in the enemy’s part of the battlefield. Sarala Das was one of the great scholars of Odia literature whose work formed a perennial source of information for succeeding generations.He is also Known as “Adikabi” and “Sudramuni”. After the war, out of gratitude Yudhishthira makes Yuyutsu king of his old territory Indraprastha. Assuming the form of a beautiful woman, she falls madly in love with Bhima, who fights and kills her venomous brother. Later Durdasa went with the victorious Pandavas and Krishna to meet Dhritarashtra and Gandhari. His father wanted to marry again (Satyavati, mother of Vyasa), but the conditions of the marriage were that the second wife would be the mother of a king someday. Using magical mantras, Arjuna causes his arrow not only to sever Jayadratha’s head, but to carry it miles away to fall into his father’s lap.

When the spirit-possessed arrow returns to him and says try again, this time he will not miss, Karna won’t admit failure by shooting the same arrow twice, even if he could kill 100 Arjunas. There will be a great war, a war without mercy. Oriya Bhagabat Ghara bears ample testimony to this fact. If there was a cosmic design behind his destruction, Krishna did not explicate it to make the unfortunate event intelligible to the ordinary mortals. His brothers and Draupadi, who left the earth with him, have fallen from the mountains into the abyss along the way. Meanwhile, Dhritarashtra has become king, despite his blindness. The secret is detachment: do your duty without concern for the personal consequences. He drinks his blood, saying that it tastes better than his mother’s milk. What then can I do? And that was a catastrophic night. The story spans over 100000 shlokas, or over 200000 verses, as each shloka is a couplet. Karna, still stinging from his rejection at the swayamvara, calls her a harlot who services five men. Sarala Dasa (Odia:ସାରଳା ଦାସ) was a 15th-century Poet and scholar of Odia literature. And the brave son of Gandhari fought valiantly against the Kaurava warriors until Bhima arrived on the scene. It says something of Duryodhana that he fights with Bhima rather than one of the weaker brothers. He meets the god Shiva who gives him powerful weapons. His writing was the first of its kind to compose a complete eighteen parvas of the Mahabharata. The other defining work of that period which went a long way in giving Odias an identity was Odia Bhagabata by Jagannath Das. Earlier during the time of exile, Jayadratha had tried to kidnap Draupadi, thus another reason for the Pandavas to hate him. Krishna offers Arjuna first choice: either he can have all of Krishna’s armies, or he can have Krishna alone. He began to grow in size and various gods issued from him. Why? Later in the war, Drona and Bhishma will fight on the side of the Kauravas not so much out of loyalty but because their mortal enemies (Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandi) fight with the Pandavas. Without doubt, the fruits of virtue will be manifest in time, as will the fruits of sin. Sarala Das is known as the "aadikavi" (the first poet) of Oriya Literature.

The name Mahabharata means “great [story of the] Bharatas.” Bharata was an early ancestor of both the Pandavas and Kauravas who fight each other in a great war, but the word is also used generically for the Indian race, so the Mahabharata sometimes is referred to as “the great story of India.” Mahabharata was written by the great sage named Vyasa (the grandfather of the Pandavas and the Kauravas). Such a sinful trader of virtue will never reap the results. According to one tradition, there are six planes of existence (lokas) above earth and seven lokas (hells) below. Vyasa [Vee-YA-sha]: narrator of the story and father of Pandu and Dhritarashtra, BHISH-ma: half-uncle by marriage of Pandu and Dhritarashtra, Dhri-ta-RASH-tra: blind king, father of Duryodhana and the Kauravas, KUN-ti: wife of Pandu and mother to the five Pandavas and Karna, Yu-DHISH-thira: leader of the Pandavas, rightful heir to the throne, BHI-ma: strongest of the Pandava brothers, KRISH-na: supporter of the Pandavas and avatar of Vishnu, DRO-na: teacher of the Pandavas and Kauravas, KAR-na: warrior, secret son of Kunti, ally of the Kauravas.
