About INDRA KASHYAP

Indra, in Hindu mythology, the king of the gods. He is one of the main gods of the archaic Sanskrit collection of hymns, the Rigveda, and is the Indo-European cousin of the German Wotan, Norse Odin, Greek Zeus, and Roman Jupiter.

In early religious texts Indra plays a variety of roles. As king, he leads cattle raids against the dasas or dasyus, native inhabitants of the lands over which his people range. He brings rain as god of the thunderbolt, and he is the great warrior who conquers the antigods (asuras). He also defeats innumerable human and superhuman enemies, most famously Vritra, a dragon and a leader of the dasa. Vritra is accused in his dragon form of holding back the waters and the rains, as a dasa of stealing cows, and as an antigod of hiding the Sun. Indra is strengthened for these feats by drinks of the elixir of immortality, the soma, which priests offer to him in the sacrifice. Among his allies are the Rudras (or Maruts), who ride the clouds and direct storms. Indra is sometimes referred to as “the thousand-eyed.”

In later Hinduism, Indra is no longer worshipped but plays the important mythological roles of god of rain, regent of the heavens, and guardian of the east. Later texts note this break in the worship of Indra. In the Mahabharata, the great Sanskrit epic, Indra fathers the great hero Arjuna and tries in vain to prevent the god of fire, Agni, from burning a great forest. In the Puranas, ancient collections of Hindu myths and legends, Krishna, the great god and avatar of Vishnu, persuades the cowherders of Gokula (or Vraja, modern Gokul) to stop their worship of Indra. Enraged, Indra sends down torrents of rain, but Krishna lifts Mount Govardhana on his fingertip and gives the people shelter under it for seven days until Indra relents and pays him homage.

Therefore should one, in keeping to one's duties performing effortlessly, exercise respect for the karma of one's own nature [see varnâs'rama]; by that karma one lives, it is that karma no doubt that is someone's worship able deity.
Let's therefore make a start with a sacrifice for the cows, the brahmins and the hill [Govardhana], and may this be carried out with the ingredients for Indra's sacrifice! [see also footnote 10.8*3]
'Indra then who realized that the worship of his person had been rejected, 'u o King, got angry with the gopas lead by Nanda who had taken to Krishna as their Lord.
Seeing the result of Krishna's mystic power was Lord Indra most amazed and stopped he the clouds, broken in his determination and with his false pride brought down.

Khandava Forest (Sanskrit: खाण्डव वन, khāndəvə vənə) was an ancient forest mentioned in the epic Mahabharata.[1] It lay to the west of Yamuna river, in modern day Delhi territory. Pandavascleared this forest to construct their capital city calledIndraprastha. This forest was earlier inhabited by Naga tribes led by a king named Takshaka.[2] Arjuna and Vasudeva Krishna cleared this forest by setting up a fire. The inhabitants of this forest were displaced. This was the root cause of the enmity of the Naga Takshaka towards the Kuru kings who ruled from Indraprastha andHastinapura.[2]
The Mahabharata states that Indra was the protecting deity (deva) of Khandava forest, which is why the region was known as Indraprastha.[3] When the forest was being burned, Indra attacked Arjun with his bolt (vajra), injuring him.[4]
A little known story is that at the time of the great war when Arjun and Karna come face to face with each other, the Naga King Aswasena desirous of avenging the death of his mother from Arjuna, in that battle quietly slips into the quiver of Karna in the guise of an Arrow. It is this Arrow that had almost killed Arjuna had it not been for Krishna who by pressing his feet on the chariot sank it one cubit deep into the earth hence the arrow missing its aim.
Indraprastha
The capital of the Pandavas. This was situated around current Delhi.
As per Dhritarashtra’s request, Yudhishtira left for the Khandava forest with the other Pandavas. Krishna and sages like Vyasa helped them, and there Yudhishtira built Indraprastha, which was as impressive as devaloka, as per Mahabharata Sabhaparva Chapter 211.
Once Agni razed Khandava but Arjuna saved Maya and five others who were living there. When Maya wanted to repay Arjuna, the latter said it was not proper to take anything for saving a life and if Maya was insistent, he could ask Krishna what he wanted. Krishna thought for a while and then asked Maya to build a palace for Yudhishtira, which would be better than any ever built. After feeding brahmins, Maya drew a boundary of 10000 muzham (1 muzham is a forearm, therefore roughly over 1 foot) and then left for Mainaka, to the north of Kailash. There, in Bindusaras, were jewels that Maya had stored when the asuras had done a yajna. He took those, and a conch named Devadatta and came back to build a palace. This palace was Indraprastha. It had ponds and gardens, and it was built in fourteen months, as per Mahabharata Sabhaparva Chapters 1-3.
After the Pandavas, the Yadava Anirudha was made king of Indraprastha, as per Mahabharata Mausalaparva Chapter 7 verse 11.

DAY-10- DECEMBER 1st SUNDAY-WITH ARJUNA' ARROWS STICKING FROM EVERY PART OF HIS BODY, BHISMA FELL FROM HIS CHARIOT.
BHISMA RECITING VISHNU SAHASRANAMA TO PANDAVAS.

On the tenth day the Pandavas, unable to withstand Bhishma's prowess, decided to put Shikhandi, who had been a woman in a prior life in front of Bhishma, as Bhishma has taken a vow not to attack a woman. Shikhandi's arrows fell on Bhishma without hindrance. Arjuna positioned himself behind Shikhandi, protecting himself from Bhishma's attack, and aimed his arrows at the weak points in Bhishma's armour. Soon, with arrows sticking from every part of his body, the great warrior fell from his chariot. His body did not touch the ground as it was held aloft by the arrows protruding from his body.
The Kauravas and Pandavas gathered around Bhishma and, at his request, Arjuna placed three arrows under Bhisma's head to support it. Bhishma had promised his father, King Shantanu, that he would live until Hastinapur were secured from all directions. To keep this promise, Bhishma used the boon of "Ichcha Mrityu" (self wished death)given to him by his father. After the war was over, when Hastinapur had become safe from all sides and after giving lessons on politics and Vishnu Sahasranama to the Pandavas, Bhishma died on the first day of Uttarayana.

Sri Vishnusahasranama
Commentary by Swami Chinmayananda
Editorial Review

The Sri Vishnusahasranama was composed by Sri Veda Vyasa,the author of the Puranas,and we meet this great chant in his classical work the mahabharata.Ani nspiring rendition is a familiar sight in may Indian homes.There are several translations and commentaries but perhaps the one by Swami Chinmayananda is the most popular.

Vishnu Sahasranama/thousand ways to transcendental
by Commentary by Swami chinmayananda

Reader Review
The Vishnu Sahasranama is a very long and difficult mantra written in Sanskrit. It is part of chapter 149 of the longest epic poem written: The Mahabarata. Here while laying on his death bed, Bhisma (The grandsire/grandfather) instructs Yudhistara this 1000 names and how this mantra is the most powerful mantra to resolve all of lifes problems and achieve salvation. Onlooking was Lord Krishna and Ved Vyasa (the scribe of the Mahabarata). Once you understand the full story the full depth and beauty of the Mantra comes to life.

I've been looking for a text that would fully cover each of the meanings of the 1000 names of Lord Vishnu. This text has done exactly that and more. It breaks down the names, translates it and even goes beyond and goes into deeper meaning of how this name came into being. I suggest anyone who has keen interest and devotion to this Strotram (Hymn) that they use this book to understand each meaning. It is transliterated with Sanskrit text, so even one who does not know how to read Sanskrit and fare quite well.

It may take a lifetime to fully recite the Vishnu Sahasranama, but we have to do our part and this books helps a great deal.

Lalita sahasranama MP3
Lalita sahasranama is a sacred Hindu text for the worshippers of the Goddess Lalita Devi, i.e. the Divine Mother, in the form of her and the male gods' feminine power, Shakti. Lalita is the Goddess of bliss, an epithet for Parvati. Etymologically, "Lalita" means "She Who Plays". In the root form (vyutpatti), the word "Lalita" means "spontaneous" from which the meaning "easy" is derived and from there-forth the word implicitly extends to "play". It is supposedly one of the most complete stotras, one need only recite it to gain total salvation*.

AFTER MAHABHARATA WAR PART III,

1) AFTER CONSECRATING THE GRANDSIRE BHEESHMA'S BODY TO THE FIRE WITH DUE CEREMONY, DHRITARASHTRA & YUDHISTHIRA PROCEEDED TO THE BANKS OF THE HOLY GANGA; WHILE OFFERING OBLATIONS YUDHISTHIRA WAS ONCE AGAIN FILLED WITH REMORSE.

2) SAGE VYASA THEM INTERVENED " IF YOU ARE STILL GNAWED BY FEELINGS OF GUILT ABOUT THE WAR, I WILL SUGGEST A WAY TO PURIFY YOURSELF. PERFORM YAJNAS LIKE THE RAJASOORYA AND THE ASHWAMEDHA AND IF YOU HAVE NO RESOURCES, THERE IS A WAY; FAR AWAY UNDER THE SLOPES OF THE HIMALAYAS LIES BURIED THE IMMENCE WEALTH OF KING MARUTTA. YOU MUST GO & FETCH IT' YUDHISTHIRA WAS ASKED TO FETCH THIS TREASURE FOR HIS YAJNA.

3) PEACE AND PROSPERITY PREVAILED DURING KING YUDHISTHIRA'S RULE..THE WELL BEING OF THE PEOPLE WAS ASSURED AND THE CATTLE WERE CONTENDED.RECALLING HIS EARLIER ADVICE, YUDHISTHIRA PLANNED TO GO TO THE HIMALAYAS, CALLING HIS BROTHERS TOGETHER, HE SAID ' OUR RESOURCES ARE DEPLETED; WE MUST GO & FIND THE WEALTH LEFT BY KING MARUTTA.

4)CROSSING NUMEROUS RIVERS AND LAKES, FORESTS AND VALLEYS THE PANDAVAS FINALLY REACHED THEIR DESTINATION. THE SET UP CAMP IN A SUITABLE SPOT. NEXT DAY AT DAWN, WITH APPROPRIATE RITES AND RITUALS, YUDHISTHIRA OFFERED HIS PRAYER TO SHIVA.THEN THEY PROCEEDED TO THE SPOT WHERE THE TREASURE WAS BURIED; UNDER PANDAVAS SUPERVISION THEIR ARMY BEGAN TO DIG.SOON THEY BROUGHT OUT GLEAMING GOLD VESSELS OF ALL SHAPES AND SIZES.

5) THOUSANDS OF CAMELS AND HORSES AND HUNDREDS OF CHARIOTS AND ELEPHANTS WERE REQUIRED TO LOAD ALL THE TREASURE THAT WAS CARRIED TO HASTINAPURA. JUST FEW DAYS AFTER THEIR ARRIVAL, THE SAGE VYASA VISITED HASTINAPURA AND GRANTED PERMISSION TO CONDUCT THE YAJNA AND SELECTED AN APPROPRIATE DAY. SAGE VYASA PERFORMED THE APPROPRIATE RITES AND SENT OFF THE SACRIFICIAL HORSE. ARJUNA ACCOMPANIED THE HORSE.AFTER ACCOMPLISHING HIS TASK, ARJUNA MADE HIS WAY BACK TO HASTINAPURA. WITH DUE CEREMONY THE HORSE WAS SACRIFICED

6) LATER AS YUDHISTHIRA WAS BIDDING FAREWELL TO KRISHNA & OTHERS, A STRANGE THING OCCURRED. THERE APPEARED A BLUE EYED MONGOOSE, HALF OF GOLD BODY WAS SHINING GOLD AFTER ADDRESSING THE GATHERING IN HUMAN VOICE, HE SAID "YOUR SACRIFICE IS NOT HALF AS MERITORIOUS AS THAT OF THE GENEROUS BRAHMANA OF KURUKSHETRA'". AFTER NARRATING THE INCIDENT THE MONGOOSE DISAPPEARED AS INEXPLICABLY AS HE HAD APPEARED.

7) FOR FIFTEEN YEARS , DHRITARASHTRA AND GANDHARI HAD LIVED AMICABLY WITH THE PANDAVAS BUT BHEEMA'S CRUEL WORDS OPENED UP OLD WOUNDS. DHRITARASHTRA SAID TO HIS FRIENDS " NOW AFTER FIFTEEN YEARS I HAVE BEGUN TO REALIZE THE VERY SINS I COMMITTED ; TO ABSOLVE MYSELF, I HAVE DECIDED TO FAST AND DO PENANCE'..

7) THEN ONE DAY DHRITARASHTRA TOLD YUDHISTHIRA "GANDHARI & I WOULD LIKE TO RETIRE TO THE FOREST AND SPEND OUR REST OF THE DAYS IN PRAYER AND PENANCE". KUNTI LEADING THE WAY GANDHARI & DHRITARSHTRA SLOWLY WALKED AWAY FROM THE PALACE. AND SO ACCOMPANIED BY VIDURA, & SANJAYA TO SPEND REST OF THEIR DAYS IN THE FOREST IN PRAYER AND MEDITATION.

Lord Krishna saved Bheema from getting killed from the hands of Dhritarashtra when all the Pandavas came to meet him after the war. Dhritarashtra insists each one of the Pandavas to hug him. When, Bheema approached Dhritarashtra, then Lord Krishna instructed him to place Bheema's iron statue that was used by Duryodayana while practicing Gadayudda, before Dhritarashtra instead of Bheema himself hugging Duryodana's father. Dhritarashtra crushed the iron statue into pieces. Thus, lord Krishna prevented Bheema from getting crushed from the hands of Dhritarashtra.

At the end of the 18th day, only twelve warriors survived the war—the five Pandavas, Krishna,Satyaki, Ashwatthama, Kripacharya, Yuyutsu, Vrishakethu (son of Karna) and Kritvarma. Vrishakethu was the only son of Karna who survived the horrific slaughter. He later came under the patronage of the Pandavas. During the campaign that preceded the Ashvamedha –yagna, Vrishakethu accompanied Arjuna and participated in the battles with Sudhava and Babruvahana. During that campaign Vrishakethu married the daughter of king Yavanatha (perhaps a king of the western regions). It is said, Arjuna developed great affection for Vrishakethu, his nephew. Yudhisthira was crowned king of Hastinapur. He renounced the throne after ruling for 36 years, passing on the crown to Arjuna's grandson Parikshit. He then left for the Himalayas with Draupadi and his brothers in what was to be their last journey.Draupadi and four Pandavas—Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula, and Sahadeva—died during the journey. Yudhisthira, the lone survivor and being of pious heart, was invited by Dharma to enter the heavens as a mortal.
 THE END OF ASWASTHAMA'S STORY
In Vyasa Mahabharata, Aswasthama, guru Drona’s son, was cursed by Krishna to undergo a terrible fate: for three thousand years, with a gaping wound on his head, from which would continuously ooze blood and pus, he was to roam around alone in the forests, shunned by humans and shunning human company. Unable, on the advice of sage Vyasa, to withdraw (unlike his adversary Arjuna, who withdrew his narayana astra, another divine weapon as destructive as brahmastra), his brahmastra, that unfailingly hits the target and also causes great devastation in its trail, Aswasthama could only change its target. His original targets were the Pandava brothers and Krishna himself, and now the substitute target was the unborn son of Abhimanyu in the womb of his widow, Uttara. With the destruction of this yet to be born, the lineage of the Kurus would have come to an end, but Krishna intervened, and the child born dead was brought back to life, but that is another story.

Aswasthama had to surrender his “crown", which was not something ordinary; it was a part of his head, and it protected him from disease, hunger and thirst. When it was torn off his head, it not merely left a gaping, festering wound, but also destroyed a very powerful protective shield. He was reduced to an ordinary mortal. He had to undergo Krishna’s curse in this condition. This is in brief the last part of Aswathama’s story.

Aswasthama was granted the boon of immortality. He was condemned to undergo three thousand years of disgrace, humiliation, and pain, and the boon turned into a curse. Although, we, ordinary mortals would never know what three thousand years would mean to one whose existence spans eternity, we can well imagine what three thousand years of agony does to the sufferer. How much relief would one in pain get from the knowledge that one day the pain would come to an end, even though that day would take three thousand years to come?

In the eighteenth century Odia poet Krushna Singha’s version of Vyasa Mahabharata, all was not lost for Aswasthama. Krishna had put a limit to his terrible curse. This was what gave the condemned man hope. The curse had calmed him. Before he left on his three thousand year journey in wilderness, he prayed to sage Vyasa to allow him to return to his ashram on the completion of those years.

Sarala’s story is different. Aswasthama was a great warrior, and was one of the greatest archers of his times and like Bhishma, Drona, Arjuna and Karna he had divine weapons in his armoury too. But Duryodhana did not think highly of him, and made no secret of his opinion of him either. For Duryodhana, one who sought immortality was afraid of death, and one who was afraid of death was a disgrace to the community of warriors. In his army was Bhishma, who would die only when he chose to die. He could not be killed. But Bhishma’s case was different from Aswasthama’s. Bhishma never sought this privilege. In Sarala Mahabharata, what his mother, Ganga, said when she left him moments after his birth turned out to have this effect, unintended by Ganga herself. Details are out of place here.

After his father’s decapitulation in the battlefield, Aswasthama tried to destroy the Pandavas but did not succeed, on account of Krishna. Duryodhana refused to make him the commander-in-chief of the Kaurava army. But he had no motivation to fight in the war any more. He performed the last rites of his father, and resolved to go on pilgrimage. Lest he felt tempted to rejoin the war, he decided to give away his weapons to someone worthy. Informed of this by Sahadeva, Krishna in the guise of a wise brahmin received his weapons from him. When Sakuni told Aswasthama that Krishna had cheated him, he was not upset at all. By making a ritual gift to Krishna himself, he told Sakuni, he would acquire great religious merit. Besides, Krishna, in his Parashuram avatar had given him all those weapons and now took them away in a different incarnation - what was his, went back to him. Therefore, he told Sakuni, he had nothing to regret about.

Aswasthama entered the batlefield after he heard that Duryodhana was lying mortally wounded. He was terribly upset, and he requested Duryodhana again to make him his commander-in-chief to enable him to avenge his father’s killing. Duryodhana agreed. In the darkness of the night he went to the Pandava camp and killed Dhristadyumna, who had committed the mean act of killing his grief-stricken, unarmed father. He also killed the five sons of Draupadi during their sleep, mistaking them to be the Pandavas. Duryodhana rebuked him when he saw those heads the following morning, regretted having made him commander-in-chief, and dismissed him from his presence. Rejected for ever by his friend and his king, Aswasthama left in disgrace.

The Pandavas were in Dwarika when this happened. Draupadi was inconsolable. She wanted revenge. She asked Krishna to kill Aswasthama. Krishna did not kill Aswasthama but dispossessed him of his weapons. Ignoring details, he cheated Aswasthama again in the guise of a brahmin. He advised him to leave his weapons under water, and at night he stole them and brought them to Draupadi’s presence to pacify her. The following morning Aswasthama heard what had happened from his maternal uncle, Kripacharya, the family preceptor of the Kurus, who, like Aswasthama had survived the Kurukshetra war. This time Aswasthama’s reaction was very different. He lost his cool, and did what he should never have done.

It did not matter to him that he did not have any weapon. He uprooted a kainsika grass (a kind of grass that grows in water), made a bow and an arrow from it, and sanctified them with the enabling mantra, thereby transforming them into a proper bow and arrow. He invoked the mantra for brahmastra and shot the arrow instructing it to destroy the Pandavas, and Krishna, along with his seven generations too, in case he intervened on their behalf. Which is of course what Krishna did. In Dwaraka, the Pandavas, his guests, were under his protection. When all his efforts to counter brahmastra failed, he used narayana astra against it. The destructive power of these two weapons was so great that Brahma himself, who was the god of creation and also the creator of brahmastra, had to intervene without the knowledge of Aswasthama. Krishna must have known, because inSarala Mahabharata there was nothing that he did not know. Brahma pacified the weapon of Vishnu, but his own weapon wanted a sacrifice – someone like a Pandava. So Brahma directed it to the womb of Uttara.

And with this, the narrative changed its direction. Aswasthama was simply pushed out of the centre stage to some quiet edge. He would not emerge from there for a long time. Now the focus was on the dead child, and Krishna was the supreme actor on the stage. He gave life to the child, and a touch of grandeur to the story of a kind that only he could. After the birth of her son Uttara died. The mother had done her job. She had given a son to continue the line of the Kurus and a successor to the throne of Hastinapura. The story did not need her anymore.

Then came the time when Krishna and his brother Balarama left the mortal world. Dhritarastra, Gandhari, and Kunti had retired to the forest, and had perished in a forest fire. Bidura had died. Yudhisthira experienced a deep sense of emptiness after the departure of Krishna, and he and his brothers soon decided it was time for them to go for vanaprastha. Yudhisthira handed over the kingdom to his grandson Parikshita and with Draupadi, the brothers left for the forest never to return.

In the last phase of their pilgrimage they went to the ashram of Parashuram in Prag tirtha (Prayag), where they met Aswasthama and Kripacharya. In just thirteen couplets of meditative grace the poet Sarala describes their meeting in that serene and sublime environment. These few verses provide one of the very few eloquent articulations of peace, calm and hope in this long narrative of intolerance, hatred, revenge, and destruction. The meeting of the Pandavas with Aswasthama was as elevating as blissful. This was no reconciliation; there was no place for it since all enmity and hostility of a lifetime had disappeared. They met as friends and well-wishers. Yudhisthira paid due respects to Aswasthama and Kripacharya, and in an expression of spiritual surrender, he prostrated before Parashuram – duti brahma(“second Brahma”) as Aswasthama described him to Yudhisthira. As Parashuram told them about the events of satya yuga (“the aeon of Truth”), Aswasthama spoke about the Mahabharata war and the glory and the greatness of the Pandavas. They all took their ritual bath in the sacred waters of the rivers, and had darshan of Bhagavan Madhava. Aswasthama most affectionately invited Yudhisthira to stay with them. They were on their way to the seat of goddess Hingula, he told Aswasthama, as the Pandavas resumed his journey. They would return to the ashram on their way back, and would join him, he told Aswasthama. They never came back; their path led them to the Himalayas.

This is how the immortal Aswasthama’s story ended in Sarala Mahabharata. It is through some kind of ending that the immortals can leave a story, and that, not merely because a story must have an end. Perhaps Aswasthama continued to stay in that ashram; perhaps he went elsewhere. In that deathless existence of his, what did he seek and what did he get? One does not know. Nobody ever told that story. There are no stories of immortals; only the mortals have stories.

In his retelling, Sarala saved Aswasthama from an utterly humiliating and miserable existence for three thousand years and his audience from yet another degrading experience: of confronting the endless howls of a man in terrible agony, not only disturbing the profound calm of the forests but also paralysing their sensibilities from fear. One such event was enough, both for those who were present in the battlefield of Kurukshetra, when it happened, and for those who centuries later listened to it as the poet retold the story: Dussasana’s screams and screeches, and Bhima’s bays as he severed his hands and dug a hole in his chest. But more than Aswasthama and his audience, Sarala saved Krishna. Some punishments, no matter in whose name, that of justice or whatever else, are a crime against humanity. And no punishment could be harsher and crueller than the one that was meted out to Aswasthama in the canonical text. Krishna was The Supreme Being’s avatara on earth, and Sarala was his devotee, and he saved him from the indignity and the disgrace of pronouncing that demeaning curse.

36 YEARS AFTER MAHABHARATA WAR PART V-C--THE END OF PANDAVAS.

1) AS PER VYASA'S ADVICE THAT THE TIME HAS COME FOR PANDAVAS, TO LEAVE THE EARTH AND DEPART FOR HEAVEN. AFTER ARRANGING THE CORONATION OF PAREEKSHIT AND LEAVING YUYUTSU AS IN CHARGE OF MATTERS OF STATE. ALL FIVE OF THEM ALONG WITH DRAUPADI SET OFF ON THE JOURNEY; A DOG FOLLOWED THEM.

2) AFTER VISITING THE SUBMERGED CITY OF DWARAKA, THEY WENT TOWARDS THE HIMALAYAS. THEY WERE ALL WALKING UP TO THE MOUNTAINS AT FAST PACE. ON THE WAY THEY SAW MOUNT MERU, AFTER WHILE DRAUPADI COULD NOT KEEP STEP WITH THE REST AND FELL DOWN.. A LITTLE LATER SAHADEVA FELL; NAKULA COULD NOT ENDURE THE SEPERATION FROM SAHADEVA. SOON ARJUNA COLLAPSED. WITH APPARENT GRIEF. NONCHALANTLY, YUDHISTHIRA WALKED ON.BEEMA CALLED OUT AS HE FELL.

3) YUDHISTHIRA MARCH ON ABOVE FOLLOWED BY THE DOG. JUST THEN LORD INDRA ARRIVED AND ASKED HIM TO GET IN IN THE CHARIOT TO GO TO HEAVEN, LEAVING THE DOG. YUDHISTHIRA SAID, " NO I SHALL NOT DO SO;I SHALL NOT LEAVE HIM FOR MY SELFISH PLEASURES". JUST THEN LORD DHAARMA, WHO HAD BEEN TESTING YUDHISTHIRA IN THE GUISE OF A DOG SAID, " YOUR RIGHTEOUS BEHAVIOR AND YOUR KIND & GENEROUS NATURE TOWARDS ALL LIVING CREATURES, MAKE YOU THE GREATEST OF ALL KINGS".

4) THEN ON INDRA'S CHARIOT, YUDHISTHIRA ROSE UP TO THE HEAVEN & SAID, " I WANT TO BE WITH MY BROTHERS WHEREEVER THEY MAY BE". THE TEMPTATIONS OF HEAVEN DID NOT LURE YUDHISTHIRA. FILLED WITH RAGE ON SEEING DURYODHANA SEATED ON A THRONE, YUDHISTHIRA TOURNED BACK" IF THIS SINFUL DURYODHANA IS PLACED IN HEAVEN AND WERE HAVE MY BRAVE BROTHERS?". THE DIVINE MESSENGER LED YUDHISTHIRA ALONG A TREACHEROUS PATH- DARK DISMAL AND GLOOMY; YUDHISTHIRA WAS PERPLEXED & WAS QUITE WILLING TO GO AWAY FROM THERE; BUT AS HE TURNED HE HEARD HUMAN VOICES CALLING HIM OUT PITEOUSLY, WERE ALL HIS BROTHERS OF COURSE..

5) YUDHISTHIRA HAD BEEN ALONE FOR JUST A COUPLE OF MINUTES WHEN MESSENGER RETURNED WITH INDRA & OTHER DEVAS. THE DARKNESS DISPELLED WITH THEIR ARRIVAL. THE TERRIFYING SCENES MAGICALLY DISAPPEARED. " DON'T' BE ANGRY BECAUSE YOU HAD A GLIMPSE OF HELL. IT ALL DEPENDS ON YOUR ACTIONS ON EARTH. BEFORE YOU , YOUR BROTHERS WERE ALL GIVEN A GLIMPSE OF HELL. NOW THEY ARE ALL IN HEAVEN AS ARE THE OTHER KINGS WHO FOUGHT FOR YOU..

6) YOU WILL NOW DWELL AMONG-ST BEST OF MEN AS A RESULT OF ALL THE MERIT YOU GAINED ON EARTH.. DHARMA, THE LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS APPEARED AGAIN & SAID, "THIS IS THE THIRD TIME I TESTED YOU, SON. BUT NOTHING COULD SWAY YOU FROM THE PATH OF GOOD CONDUCT"". YUDHISTHIRA THEN BATHED IN THE CELESTIAL GANGA AND ABANDONING HIS MORTAL BODY AT LAST, WENT TO MEET HIS KINSMEN. .
