In the previous episode, we had witnessed the continuation of Bhagawan Krishna’s accord on how Yudishtra meticulously follows the path of “Dharma”, no matter whatever happens. We’re witnessing this important accord by setting the context to our present-day life, wherein we’re struggling to follow certain important aspects of “Dharma”, and moreover, we’re also struggling to pass on the “Dharma” to the younger generation. This is where we were talking about how “interest” is very important for any task to attain perfection. In the case of following “Dharma” too, we should first have the interest in us, which would automatically aid us in exploring this path. While we’re cultivating the interest in ourselves by listening to various spiritual discourses, reading various aspects of the Sanaatana Dharma Literature, etc. we should also ensure that the younger generation is also into it on a gradual basis. This is because of the primary reason that the younger generation today is exposed to enormous amounts of disturbances in the form of social media and other things, wherein they get confused as they attain adolescence. Hence, we’ve to be patient with them and at any cost, we should never force them to do something which is not of their interest. We should let them develop interest gradually in them as time progresses and with this, their path towards “Dharma” will be sustainable and long-term with full dedication. We should always remember this point as we move forward.
Emphasizing all these points to Yudishtra thus, Bhagawan Krishna explains to him, “Oh Yudishtra! Since you’re an embodiment of all the above-mentioned characteristics, you will definitely get to rule your kingdom one day very soon. “Dharma” will definitely win! Please be patient for some more time. You’re not only going to rule the Indraprastha kingdom alone, but also the entire world with your “Dharma”. The world needs your administration and the “Dharma” path that you follow! Oh Yudishtra! Please do not think that you’re in the forest with nothing at all in your hands! The “Dharma” and the “Gunas” that you possess are the real aspects of wealth that you have, which not many people have outside! Some people might think that they have all the prowess in the world, like swords, arrows, bows, “Gadha”, and other weapons. Some people might think that they have all the powerful people with them who can win any war easily! But let me tell you one thing very clearly – All these are not going to help anyone! It is only the “Dharma” that will win finally! Hence, don’t worry! Only those people who have the “Dharma” in them are going to win the fight at the end of the day! It is not only about the fight here – Mother Earth also wants to be ruled by a king who is an embodiment of “Dharma”. Right now, Mother Earth is feeling very bad and depressed that she hasn’t got the right ruler for herself. However, things will change very soon. Mother Earth will get what she deserves! Hence, please be patient with things and do not make any hasty decisions in the middle. Let things go by the flow. You will definitely rule the entire world! These are my firm words!”
As Bhagawan Krishna is talking thus, Yudishtra is also getting motivated and is extremely happy. Yudishtra thanks Bhagawan Krishna for His kind words of appreciation and bows down to Him with all his respect. As this is happening, Sage Maarkandeya makes his way to meet Yudishtra and Co. So for today, let us understand up to this point and we shall wait till the next episode to understand what Sage Maarkandeya has to say to all of them! An interesting accord awaits us! Stay tuned! 🙂
