The hidden truth of Mahabharata

An amazing interpretation of the Mahabharata which applies to all of us, please read the whole story, for it is bound to add value to your life and make you understand something new which you never knew existed.

It was said in the texts that eighty percent of the fighting male population of the civilization was wiped out in the eighteen days of the 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.

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

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.
The Old man smiled brighter and said – “When Krishna rides your chariot!”

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.

He seemed to have disappeared in the column of dust. Leaving behind the great philosophy of Life.


shiv vishnu sivaom

Whose More Supreme – Bhagavan Shiv or Bhagavan Vishnu

“शिव विष्णु रूपायाय शिव रूपाया विष्णवे |
शिवस्या हृदयम विष्णु विष्णु चा हृदयायत शिवाहा ||
यथ शिवम्यो विष्णुहू येवम विष्णुमायहा शिवाहा |
यथान्ताराम न पासचाय ताथा मीस्वस्थी रेयूषी “||

“Shivaaya Vishnu Roopaaya Shiva Roopaaya Vishanave |
Shivasya Hrudayam Vishnur Vishnuscha Hrudayam Shivaha ||
Yatha Shivamayo Vishnuhu Yevam Vishnu Mayaha Shivaha |
Yathaantharam Na Paschyaami Thatha Me Swasthi Ra Yushi”||

IT’S REAL MEANING AS:- “There is no differences between Lord Shiva and Vishnu”, We people Creating the main diferences between them, and we are searching for God in this world there is no God to search, God is everywhere and every human also God,we defined and bring out our inner god, The ‘Man’ is the Special among of the 84lacs lives,Man only occupies this total earth and universe, Man knows everything, But he not realizing to finding his inner God, Upanishads and Vedas says Do good Be Good and Say Good, Spread the Truth, Beauty, Happiness”,

“Shivaya Vishnu Roopaya”:- “Vishnu’s Roopa/Beauty and his avatar is none other than shiva. In other words”:- As:- “SHIVA IS VISHNU”.
“Shiva Roopaya Vishnuve” :- “The one in Shiva Roopa is none other than vishnu. In other words:- As:- “VISHNU IS SHIVA”.
“Shivscha Hrudayagam Vishnu, vishnuscha hrudayagam shiva – vishnu” :- Resides in “Shiva’s Heart”, and “Shiva resides in Vishnu’s Heart”.
“Yatha Shiva Mayo Vishnuhu, Yevam Vishnu Mayah Shiv – Vishnu” :- “Will be found in the same place you find Shiva, and Shiva can be found in the same place Vishnu is. As is if you find one, you have found the other”.
“Yathantaranna pashyami, thathatme swasthirayushi” – As:- “WE ARE ONE AND THE SAME”.

This mantra/sloka is found in the “YAJUR VEDA”. It can also be found towards the end of the “YAJUR-VEDA SANDYAA-VANDHANAM” – Every thing in this world is from “Shiva and Parvathi”. “Who are none other than “Rudra and Adi Shakti”. Every one is a form/avatar of them. They take this form to teach us that one person while a single entity can be different avatars. As:- “In a child is not just a child. It could be a son or a daughter, a sibling, grow up to be father mother etc. Whole the child is one entity, it takes different forms/avatars as time progresses and takes on different responsibilities.

In addition to the above which i personally believe, incase you need evidential proof then
