Episode 58 - The Bhisma Parva
Play
Episode 58 - The Battle Books, but not the battle, begin here.  Since we are at the second most important beginning of the epic, aside from the very beginning, there is a lot of unnecessary material stuffed into the narrative.  I tried my best to make sense of it, and to leave out the voluminous details that had nothing to do with the story at hand.  I also tried to iron out the repeated descriptions of the armies' dispositions, and the scene of the two sides lined up prior to battle.  This is one of the most difficult episodes I've had to produce, so I hope I was able to make some sense out of it.

We also belatedly get an explanation for Sanjay's magic vision.  It turns out Vyasa popped in and granted him that ability.  Maybe this scene really occurred when Krishna was still in town for negotiations, because it was Krishna's conversation with Karna that Sanjay was first able to report on without actually being there.  Otherwise, there is no explanation for those earlier feats of clairvoyance.

This confusing little prelude leads right up to the Bhagavad Gita, which is the very next chapter in the Bhisma Parva.  We'll begin on that in the next episode.

It is also worth repeating the observation J.A.B. van Buitenen made about the composition of the two armies facing off at Kurukshetra.  It turns out that the armies that allied with the Pandavas all came from kingdoms to the south and east of Hastinapur, while the Kauravas' allies were all from the north and west.

The timeless pattern of Indian migrations and invasions has always been a flow of people coming out of the northwest and conquering or settling in the richer lands of the south and east.  If there is some macro-economic or demographic movement happening behind the human drama, perhaps we are looking at a folk recollection of some past invasion, which was stopped by the Indian heroes and their advisor Krishna.  Maybe Alexander was in there somewhere, on the Kauravas' side?!?

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.
