I read a very nice story in The Hindu website today.

Sharing it here...hope you all like it.

Krishna to the rescue


Krishna had refused to take up arms in the Kurukshetra war, but His presence on the side of the Pandavas was beneficial to them in many ways, because Krishna, the Supreme One, guided them in times of crisis. He also helped them find their way out of tricky situations, explained V.S. Karunakarachariar, in a discourse.

Arjuna was a man who had taken many vows. Two of them landed him in trouble. One vow was that he would kill anyone who insulted his skill in archery. Another vow was that he would kill anyone who hurt Yudhishthira. During the battle with the Kauravas, Yudhishthira is injured and comes back to camp dejected. Arjuna and Krishna arrive, and seeing Arjuna, Yudhishthira gives vent to his anger. He insults Arjuna and says that Arjuna must give up his bow, if he cannot kill the enemy.

Arjuna is bound by his vow to kill anyone who insults his bravery. So he is now in the terrible situation of having to kill his own brother.

As always he looks to Krishna for help, and Krishna does not let him down. It is suggested that Arjuna should insult Yudhishthira. Arjuna accuses Yudhishthira of having brought the family to this pass. Was it not his gambling that had seen the family lose its hard earned wealth? Was it not Yudhishthira's gambling that had resulted in Draupadi being shamed? As Arjuna lists Yudhishthira's mistakes, Yudhishthira hangs his head in shame. Can there be anything more troubling, than having one's sins pointed out to one, and being told that one is responsible for the sorrow of others? It is akin to death. Thus Arjuna by insulting Yudhishthira has killed him in a metaphoric sense.

But what about the other vow, whereby Arjuna should kill anyone who kills his brother? Shouldn't Arjuna now therefore kill himself? Again, Krishna comes to the rescue. It is suggested that Arjuna praise himself.

Self praise is also akin to death, and thus by praising himself, Arjuna has committed suicide, and so the other vow is also kept by him. Thus we find that at every turn Krishna helps the Pandavas.

Krishna's cleverness
 
 
Lord Krishna goes to the court of Duryodhana to negotiate on behalf of the Pandavas. The mission, aimed at peace, fails as the Kauravas are adamant that they will not yield even an inch of land to the Pandavas.

War between the Kauravas and the Pandavas, therefore, becomes a certainty. Krishna's task now is to ensure the victory of the Pandavas, and how He goes about achieving this shows His cleverness, explained V.S. Karunakarachariar in a discourse.

Army chief appointment

As the first step, the Lord has to make sure that the Kauravas do not have an invincible army chief. On their side is Aswattama, son of Drona. He is an incomparable warrior.

It would have been the most natural thing for Duryodhana to appoint him as chief of the Kaurava forces.

And Krishna wants to make sure this does not happen. As His task of trying to make the Kauravas see reason fails, Krishna decides to leave.

Sakuni's suspicions

Though all the allies of the Kauravas are present, Krishna asks Aswattama to step aside for a moment. This is viewed with suspicion by Sakuni and Duryodhana. They wonder what could be the reason for Krishna trying to have a private conversation with Aswattama.

This is what Krishna wanted.

Krishna then drops His ring and Aswattama picks it up and hands it to the Lord.

This gesture heightens the suspicions of Sakuni.

When the time for appointment of the army chief comes, Aswattama name is not given a thought at all as Sakuni now sees him as a secret ally of Krishna or a mole planted by the Lord amongst the Kauravas.

It is only when the Kaurava army is routed and Duryodhana is on the verge of death, Aswattama is made the army chief. But only three survivors, including Aswattama, are left.

Thus the services of the person who would have been the ablest commander are lost to the Kauravas because of Krishna's cleverness.

Success is assured to those on whose side the Lord is and defeat is guaranteed, if He is not on one's side.

Respect for devotees
 
 
Sugriva is suspicious of Rama and Lakshmana who have entered the forest. He is afraid that they might be friends of Vali and they might harm him. So he sends Hanuman to find out more about them.

After meeting them, Hanuman goes back and dispels Sugriva's doubts. Sugriva's fears having disappeared, he tells Rama that he has had a report from Hanuman about Rama's qualities, and he therefore wishes to make friends with Him. But Hanuman wants this pact of friendship to be entered into fully. So he lights a fire and asks Rama and Sugriva to circum-ambulate it and seal their pact. Sugriva remarks that now that they are friends, they will share their joys and sorrows. He then breaks the branch of a tree, and seats himself on it beside Rama. It is left to Hanuman to offer Lakshmana a seat on the branch of a sandalwood tree. Sugriva should have himself remembered to offer a seat to Lakshmana too, but he doesn't, and later suffers for ignoring Lakshmana, a staunch devotee of the Lord, said Akkarakkani Srinidhi, in a discourse.

Rama vows to eliminate Vali, who has usurped Sugriva's throne and captured his wife. Rama says that His arrows never fail to hit the target, and that using them he will kill Vali. But the first time Sugriva engages in a fight with Vali, the Lord does not kill Vali, and Vali thrashes Sugriva soundly. The reason Rama offers is that since the brothers look alike, He has to be careful not to kill Sugriva accidentally. But the real reason must have been Rama's displeasure at Sugriva not offering Lakshmana a seat, when he offered Rama one. So Rama must have decided to allow Sugriva to get a delayed relief from his problems.

Guha's behaviour is a complete contrast to Sugriva's. Lakshmana stands guard as Rama and Sita sleep in the forest. He is distressed to see Lakshmana spend the night standing. He makes up a bed for Lakshmana and suggests that Lakshmana rest, while he takes over the job of guarding Rama and Sita. By offering to relieve Lakshmana of stress and offering him a bed, Guha shows he has respect not only for the Lord but also for His devotees. Disrespect shown to His devotees never fails to anger the Lord.
