Why are the Mahabharat and the Ramayana not taught in Indian schools? Some people believe they are holy works. However, they are a part of our past; the epic is about tales, not a religion because both children and elders benefit from stories. In front of you, I will demonstrate a realistic method. The top three Mahabharat lessons are still relevant today.
1. Pride is the real enemy of strength:
Man is now the most powerful being on earth. Man has traveled to the Moon and Mars in addition to the Earth… All information is accessible at the snap of our fingertips. We separate oil from the deep of the sea. But still, man has no bend to the vagaries of nature.
Bheema was solid. He was not frightened of anybody. However, one day in the jungle, a monkey appeared in front of him. The monkey seemed to be in poor health. He was not able to get out of Bheema’s way. Bheema requested that the monkey move his tail. Bheema’s path was blocked by the monkey’s tail. Because he couldn’t move his tail, the monkey said, “Please move my tail and go your way.”
Bheema was outraged at the request. He tried to manipulate the monkey’s tail with his foot in a disrespectful manner. The tail, on the other hand, remained motionless.
He set his mace down and attempted to move the tail with his hands, but it remained still. He used all of his efforts, but the tail remained still. By clasping his hands together, Bheema declared his surrender. He quickly recognized that this was no ordinary monkey.
This was Hanuman, the son of Vayu, he realized. Many individuals have strength! Hanuman arrived in his natural form and told Bheema. Some people are physically strong, while others are financially strong, and yet others are mentally strong.
However, “When we begin to take pride in our abilities, pride becomes our downfall.“.
Some jobs can be accomplished via humility rather than power. There is no shame in asking for support.
The tail was only a tool for Bheema; the actual obstacle was his ego, his pride.
Don’t you believe that if we put our egos, pride, and superiority aside, we would be able to improve much more quickly?
This lesson, I believe, is highly relevant now.
2. What is the definition of a true friend?
We anticipate that our friends should uphold us in all that we do. We need their assistance to conceal our errors and indecencies.
Karna and Duryodhan were additionally companions. At the point when Karna’s siblings taunted him, ridiculed him, Duryodhan was the person who supported him.
Karna was given a spot by his side, and he was respected. Karna had promised Duryodhan that he would always be faithful to him.
Karna is a fascinating figure to watch. He’s a shady figure. Karna has a lot to teach us.
Karna is someone with whom we can all connect. Because he has been wronged by a large number of individuals.
Where did Karna go wrong? Karna should have been the first to interfere when Duryodhan set fire to the Pandav home. But Karna didn’t Stop. When Duryodhan, driven by greed, set out to kill the Pandavas, Karna should have intervened to prevent him from committing yet another sin. Karna, on the other hand, did not.
Karna kept his word and stood behind Duryodhan at all times. But the question we should be asking is whether this assistance benefited or damaged Duryodhan.
Karna was a bad buddy. He didn’t just fail once, but several times. Because he never showed Duryodhan a mirror. Don’t you believe a good friend would keep us from doing something we shouldn’t? Friendship isn’t terrible in and of itself, but an unconditional commitment to our friends may be fatal.
This lesson, I believe, is still extremely applicable today.
3. Who is the true hero?
Neither the Pandavas nor the Kauravas were flawless. The Pandavas had weaknesses, but the Kauravas had virtues.
However, it would not be fair if the Kauravas triumphed and the Pandavas lost. It would’ve felt wrong, wouldn’t it?
It appears that the tale is unfinished. But why is that? Why do we want the Pandavas to be victorious?
There was one significant difference between the Kauravas and the Pandavas. The Pandavas had to deal with the fallout of their errors. They acknowledged responsibility for their errors. They won some games and lost others. They never, however, ran away from their errors.
Kauravas, on the other hand, constantly blame others. They never accepted responsibility for whatever they did.
Good and Evil remain in separate worlds in Satyug. Good and evil live in the same universe in Treta Yug. Good and evil live in the same family in the Dwapar Yug. In today’s Kali Yug, Good and Evil coexist in the same individual.
The Mahabharata’s Great War plays out every day in our heads.
Consider that for a moment.
We have Arjun’s attention, Duryodhan’s envy, Krishna’s ability to guide, and Shakuni’s ability to decide. In the end, I believe Mahabharata is attempting to teach us something really valuable. We can have a hundred distinct and devastating flaws, yet with just five positive traits, we can overcome these flaws.
That’s it, Guys. So, share this knowledge with your friends because this is one of Mahabharata’s most significant lessons.
