Chapter 1 Ganpati wrote while Vyasa recalled history.
The renowned Vedas’ compiler, BHAGAVAN VYASA, was the famous Parasara’s son. He was the author of the heavenly epic known as the Mahabharata. Ved Vyas is a postion. Krishna Dwaipan (Krishna Dvaipayana) was the birth name of the Dwapar Yug Ved Vyas. Satyavati, Bhishma’s foster mother was also mother of Krishna Dwaipan. As he organised and compiled the Vedas and Purans, he earned the position “Ved Vyas.”
After creating the Mahabharata, he considered how to share the revered history with everyone. He focused his thoughts on the Creator, Brahma, who had appeared to him. “Bhagwan, I have recalled a magnificent past, but I cannot think of one who can take it down to my dictation,” begged Vyasa as he bowingly addressed him with folded hands.
Vyasa was praised by Brahma, who then commanded him to invoke Ganapati and ask him to serve as his amanuensis. After saying these remarks, he vanished. Sage Vyasa contemplated the manifestation of Ganapati in front of him. With appropriate respect, Vyasa welcomed him and asked for his assistance.
“I will narrate the Mahabharata to you, Bhagawan Ganapati, and I request that you would be kindly willing to record it.”
Ganapati answered: “Very good I’ll carry out your request. But while I’m writing, my pen must not stop moving. You must thus speak without pausing or thinking. Only under these conditions may I write?”
Vyasa nodded in agreement, but he put in a caveat: “Be it so, but you must first understand what I command before you write it down.”
Ganapati nodded in agreement while grinning. The Mahabharata’s history was then sung by the guru. When he wrote complicated stanzas, Ganapati would periodically pause to consider their meaning.
According to Vyasa’s instructions, Ganapati eventually wrote the Mahabharata.
Before the invention of printing, the only source of books was the knowledgeable person’s memory. The wise Suka, Vyasa’s son, was the first to learn the vast epic.
He explained it to several more disciples thereafter. If not, the book might not have survived to be read by future generations.
According to legend, Suka taught the Gandharvas, Rakshasas, and Yakshas the Mahabharata while Narada told the devas the history. It is commonly known that the epic was disclosed for the benefit of humanity by the honourable and knowledgeable Vaisampayana, one of Vyasa’s most important pupils.
Vaisampayana requested Vaisampayana to tell the history at a huge Yagna that Janamejaya, the great King Parikshit’s son, performed.
Suta then retold this history, as it had been related to him by Vaisampayana, in front of a group of sages in Naimisa forest, under the direction of Rishi Saunaka.
Suta spoke to the group: “I had the excellent pleasure to hear the Mahabharata history, which Vyasa recalled to instruct humanity in dharma and other goals of life. I’d like to tell you the story.” The ascetics quickly crowded around him at these remarks.
Suta went on: “At the sacrifice led by King Janamejaya, Vaisampayana related the Mahabharata’s central narrative and its episodic episodes. After that, I undertook a lengthy pilgrimage to several holy sites and went to the location of the historic battle’s famous battleground. I’ve came over to say hello to everyone.” He then started outlining the entire Mahabharata in front of the large crowd.
Chitrangada succeeded the legendary King Santanu as ruler of Hastinapura, and Vichitravirya succeeded him. Dhritarashtra and Pandu were his two sons. Pandu, the younger brother, took the kingdom because Pandu, the oldest of the two, was born blind. During his reign, Pandu made a mistake that forced him to flee to the jungle with his two wives, where he spent many years making amends.
The five kids who would grow up to be known as the five Pandavas were born to Pandu’s two wives, Kunti and Madri, while they were living in the wilderness. While they were still residing in the wilderness, Pandu died away. The five Pandavas were raised by the sages throughout their formative years.
The rishis brought them all back to Hastinapura when the oldest, Yudhishthira, became sixteen and gave them to the elderly grandsire Bhishma. The Pandavas quickly attained mastery over the different disciplines, particularly those related to the Kshatriyas, the Vedas, and Vedanta. The blind Dhritarashtra’s sons, the Kauravas, were envious of the Pandavas and made several attempts to harm them.
The family’s patriarch, Bhishma, finally interfered to help the two of them come to an agreement and find peace. In light of this, the Pandavas and the
From their respective capitals, Indraprastha and Hastinapura, the Kauravas started to reign independently.
Later, in accordance with the then-current Kshatriya code of honour, the Kauravas and the Pandavas played a dice game. Yudhishthira was vanquished by Sakuni, who was playing on behalf of the Kauravas. The Pandavas were forced to spend thirteen years in exile as a result. They abandoned the realm and followed their loving bride Draupadi into the wilderness.
The Pandavas lived in the forest for twelve years and remained hidden for the last year in accordance with the rules of the game.
When they came back and requested their paternal legacy from Duryodhana, who had in the meanwhile stolen their kingdom, he refused to give it to them. War was what happened as a result.
Duryodhana was beaten by the Pandavas, who also took back their lands. For 36 years, the Pandavas governed the realm. After that, they gave their grandson Parikshit the throne before heading to the jungle with Draupadi while still dressed modestly in tree bark.
This is the main plot of the Mahabharata history. Along with the story of the Pandavas’ fortunes, this great and old epic from our country has other informative anecdotes and sublime teachings.
In reality, the Mahabharata is a true ocean filled with many diamonds and pearls.
Along with the Ramayana, it serves as a living repository for the morals and traditions of our motherland.
