Mahabharat Chapter 102 How Yudhishthira Cared for Dhritarashtra More Than Kauravas

Chapter 102 How Yudhishthira Cared for Dhritarashtra More Than Kauravas

Man will not stop till he has obtained the object of his desire. Once he has it, he is quickly content, but he soon becomes a slave to perpetually new longings and new sorrows, and he never finds peace. Although it is a Kshatriya’s dharma to battle and kill his adversaries, what satisfaction can one derive from acquiring power, rank, and fortune via the killing and suffering of brothers and close relatives? When the war first started, Arjuna emphasised this in his fervent appeal before Krishna. In response, Krishna outlined the fundamentals of human behaviour and correct duty performance. However, Arjuna’s feelings and arguments also carried a lot of weight and included more truth than first appeared.

After defeating the Kauravas, the Pandavas established themselves as the undisputed kings of the kingdom. They began their responsibilities and completed them in accordance with dharma. However, they did not experience the euphoria they had anticipated from winning.

“How did the Pandavas handle the kingdom once they had gained it with Dhritarashtra?” Vaisampayana narrates the history of how he recited Vyasa’s Mahabharata to King Janamejaya.

The Pandavas treated Dhritarashtra, who was drowning in sorrow, with the highest care. They made an effort to cheer him up. They took no action to make him feel degraded. No directives were given by Yudhishthira without his consent. Kuntidevi took care of Gandhari, whose one hundred sons had vanished like dream riches, while Draupadi diligently performed their respective duties with respect for both of them.

Yudhishthira equipped Dhritarashtra’s home with opulent furniture, beds, decorations, and anything else that was required. He sent the most delectable and exquisite meals that the royal cook had made for him. Dhritarashtra’s housemate, Kripacharya, kept him company. He was consoled by Vyasa with enlightening tales from bygone eras intended to ease his anguish.

Yudhishthira consulted Dhritarashtra while handling state problems and behaved in a way that gave him the impression that the kingdom was being run on his behalf and that he, as the family’s eldest member, was still in charge.

Yudhishthira was extremely cautious when speaking, never allowing himself to utter anything that would hurt the grieving old man. The princes from all over the globe who travelled to Hastinapura accorded Dhritarashtra the same honours as they had in the past, as if he were still the emperor. Gandhari had little opportunity to experience her declining estate thanks to the female servants. Since their uncle had lost all of his sons, Yudhishthira had given very stringent instructions to his brothers not to do anything that may even remotely hurt him.

The brothers scrupulously adhered to this directive, probably with the exception of Bhima. Dhritarashtra also treated the Pandavas with kindness. While they did not treat him unfairly, he did not harbour any grudges against them. The Pandavas treated their elderly relative in a routine manner. But after a while, Bhima started to occasionally cause offence. Few times, he purposely disregarded the elderly man’s directions out of irritation. He would use phrases like “Those wicked relatives of ours have themselves to thank for their demise.” in front of Dhritarashtra.

Bhima was unable to forget or pardon Duryodhana, Karna, or Duhsasana. When Gandhari observed that Bhima spoke words that hurt Dhritarashtra, she was very distressed. She had a great and wise soul, nevertheless. She would turn to Kunti if she was troubled by whatever Bhima said and find comfort. For Kunti was a true example of dharma and a source of patience. In this way, fifteen years elapsed.
