Episode 33 - The Hawk and the Dove
Episode 33

These are the last three stories of the long series of tales in the Book of the Forest.  The Pandavas are finishing up their pilgrimage across India and are moving northward for their rendezvous with Arjun.  The first story, Yavakrita, is particularly interesting in that the protagonist is not a Twice-born.  In this case, he's a rude and uppity Vaishya, but he's the main character nonetheless.  I find the little detail about the Shudra gaurd particularly interesting.  He works for Yavakri's father, and he inexplicably blocks the boy from getting to safety, which results in Yavakri's death.  I can only guess that it was thought fitting that a Vaishya rapist be killed at the hands of an even lower-caste menial.

Jantu seems to fit in among these stories in that it is another case of a Brahmin helping a king with his fertility problems.  In contrast to many of the other stories, the king's wives are distinctly un-heroic.

The last story, the Hawk & the Dove, stands out as the most unusual of all the stories so far, especially because it involves a king, two gods, but NO BRAHMINS!  Where are the Brahmins?  The Book of the Forest is a very strong piece of propaganda about the importance of having well-bred Brahmins for all occasions, but then this strange tale caps them all off.

This story has the strongest feel of Buddhism that I've seen so far in the Mahabharata.  The king's self-sacrifice is strongly reminiscent of other Buddhist stories in which the Boddhisatva sacrifices his own life for another's benefit.

Next time, we'll finally get back to the deeds of our heroes, as they make their way to the hermitage of Nar-Narayan way up on the slopes of Mt. Kailash.

The full [1] name of the book is Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School. The book has tried to explain how the brain works in twelve perspectives: exercise, survival, wiring, attention, short-term memory, long-term memory, sleep, stress, multisensory perception, vision, gender and exploration. 2 Each chapter demonstrates things scientists already know about the brain, and things we as people do that can affect how our brain will develop. When the author has encountered certain articles and books with startling claims, such as, "Mozart Effect", on how brain functions and how we should teach or do business, he did not find any supporting evidence in brain science literature he was familiar with. He has concluded that all these misconceptions are there because brain scientists have not sufficiently talked to people at other domains, such as teachers, business professionals, education majors, etc. Therefore, he has decided to close this gap by writing this book. 3 In this book, Medina cites only [3] research that has appeared in peer-reviewed journals and that has been successfully replicated.14 Actually, the author has listed all the references he has used here. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Edit By -Suman Das / SUMAN follow on Instagram https://www.Instagram.com/sumandas030 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Thank you for Watching this video.

Bhagavad Gita Hindi
Yatharth Geeta
श्रीकृष्ण जिस स्तर की बात करते हैं, क्रमश: चलकर उसी स्तर पर खड़ा होनेवाला कोई महापुरुष ही अक्षरश: बता सकेगा कि श्रीकृष्ण ने जिस समय गीता का उपदेश दिया था, उस समय उनके मनोगत भाव क्या थे? मनोगत समस्त भाव कहने में नहीं आते। कुछ तो कहने में आ पाते हैं, कुछ भाव-भंगिमा से व्यक्त होते हैं और शेष पर्याप्त क्रियात्मक हैं– जिन्हें कोई पथिक चलकर ही जान सकता है। जिस स्तर पर श्रीकृष्ण थे, क्रमश: चलकर उसी अवस्था को प्राप्त महापुरुष ही जानता है कि गीता क्या कहती है। वह गीता की पंक्तियाँ ही नहीं दुहराता, बल्कि उनके भावों को भी दर्शा देता है; क्योंकि जो दृश्य श्रीकृष्ण के सामने था, वही उस वर्तमान महापुरुष के समक्ष भी है। इसलिये वह देखता है, दिखा देगा; आपमें जागृत भी कर देगा, उस पथ पर चला भी देगा। ‘पूज्य श्री परमहंस जी महाराज’ भी उसी स्तर के महापुरुष थे। उनकी वाणी तथा अन्त:प्रेरणा से मुझे गीता का जो अर्थ मिला, उसी का संकलन ’यथार्थ गीता’ है। – स्वामी अड़गड़ानन्द #Krishna #Mahabharata #Yoga #Meditation
