Kurukshetra Festival: History


Pandavas and Kauravs were the rival forces who fought the battle of Kurukshetra against each other. The Pandavas prince Arjuna found himself in a quandary when he saw himself potholed against his own kinsmen andLord Krishna giving sermon to Arjuna teachers. It was the time when his chariot driver Lord Krishna took the opportunity to explain Arjuna’s duties and responsibilities on the battle field. Different Yogic and Vedantic philosophies were told by Krishna to encourage Arjun on the battle field. This particular state of depression of Arjuna was recorded in the Bhagavad Gita. Krishna taught the larger picture of life and dharma (duty) to Arjuna.

According to Krishna’s belief the soul of every individual is perpetual and immortal but if he loses his life on the battlefield then only his material body is lost. Krishna advised Arjuna to always keep an eye on establishing the universal harmony which is one of the prime and important fundamental responsibilities. Fear and hesitations on the battlefield are the enemies while fighting for a cause.

Yogic paths of Bhakti (devotional service), karma (action), dhayana (meditation) and jnana (knowledge) were described by Krishna. The temporal ego always restricts the flourish of inner soul.
