Episode 29 - Damayanti & Nala, part 2
Play
Episode 29 - We finish the story of Nala.  Brhadashva suggested that this story would cheer up the Pandavas, since there was indeed a king who had it worse than they.  But shortly after hearing the story, they get news that Arjun was up on a mountain top starving himself and they were once again plunged into depression and hopelessness.  At least Yuddistira learned Nala's dicing secrets, so he need not worry about another match with Shakuni.

The story of Nala as it is told in the Mahabharata has some significant discrepancies in the storyline.  They are too obvious and numerous to list out in full, but an example would be that Damayanti remained in hiding in her aunt's palace even though she could have told the queen the truth at any time, and could go home at any time.  Stranger still, the queen mother does not recognize her neice, because the girl was covered in mud all the time and so her famous mole was concealed by the dried muck.

On the other hand, the scenes are very dramatic and would have made a wonderful 19th century opera.

I found the detail about the size of Nala's army to be interesting.  Clearly, chariots were not the most common vehicle on the battle field.  There were 19 elephants and numerous horses, and hundreds of infantry, but just one chariot.  Perhaps by this time the chariot was more of a status symbol than an effective military weapon; alternatively, were they so expensive that one chariot was all that could be afforded on this mission!?!

Finally, thanks for the feedback on the identity of Kali.  They tell me that Kali is the kali in kaliyuga.  His buddy Dvapar is of the Dvaparyuga.  I had always thought the names Dvapar & Kali, in that context, were modifiers that somehow described these various epochs.  But now it seems Kaliyuga is the epoch that is dominated or (perhaps) ruled by the entity Kali.

I always thought a little better of the Dvaparyuga, since during that period people were more humane, but the character of Dvapar is not at all appealing.  As for Kali, he comes off as a small-minded little bastard-- hardly fitting for the demon who dominates an entire Epoch!

प्राक्कथन
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

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.
