Hi guys!! Wow I had no idea this thread's come back to life, but I'm glad to see that it has... congrats LOL will catch up on the current discussion some time this week, I'm sure I'll like... but until then, just wanted to throw out a new MB related curiosity your way and get your thoughts:

The character of Drishtadyumna is basically created as a mechanism for revenge, an instrument of brahma-hatya at that... how much control did such a character have over his karm, and how would he incur karm-phal if he was made for murder? Did he have some sort of conscience which could influence him and make him lead a different life, other than what Dhrupad wanted him for? And if not, could he really suffer any consequences or would they go straight on Dhrupad's books?

I'm sure Kisari Mohan's might be available for Kindle.


If you are sure, why did you use the word "might"?


Wacko

Based on your characterization above, Drishtadyumna would be referred to as a terrorist in current age.
WMD in nature are not born with a brain or a heart.!

As for Karma, it is not divine retribution as in reward or punishment in later lives but simply a GPS or opportunity to make good in current life.

Every person (WMD or not )is born with a heart & brain whether they use it or not is a different matter .I Would say that karma includes the bolded too.

So Drupada was born as a boon to the father, for purposes of killing Drona.
