Mahabharat Chapter 29 Pasupata

Chapter 29 Pasupata

Beginning with their first few days in the jungle, Bhima and Draupadi occasionally quarrelled with Yudhishthira.
They would argue that a kshatriya should only display justified rage and that patience and forbearance in the face of slights and insults were unworthy of him.

They would make forceful arguments in favour of their claims and cite respectable experts. Yudhishthira would firmly respond that they should keep their end of the bargain and that patience was the greatest of all virtues.
Bhima was irrationally impatient to seize control of the kingdom once more, seize Duryodhana, and murder him. He believed that warriors should not continue to live peacefully in the forest.

According to Bhima, Yudhishthira: “You use language similar to those who recite Vedic mantras and are content with the way the words sound while being unaware of their meaning. Your mind has lost its clarity. Despite being a kshatriya by birth, you do not act or think like one. Your disposition has made you a brahmana. The scriptures encourage a kshatriya sternness and enterprise, you know. The evil sons of Dhritarashtra shouldn’t be allowed to rule. A kshatriya’s birth is in vain if he cannot defeat his treacherous foes. In my perspective, if we enter hell by murdering a treacherous enemy, that hell is actually bliss. We suffer more from your patience than from fire. Arjuna and I are tormented by it day and night, keeping us awake. You claim that we should keep our word, yet those rogues have fraudulently taken control of our kingdom and are enjoying it, all the while you lie torpid as a gorged python. How does the famed Arjuna maintain his secrecy? Can a patch of grass conceal the Himalayas? How do the secretive Arjuna, Nakula, and Sahadeva maintain their lion hearts? Can the well-known Draupadi go about unnoticed? Even if we accomplish these impossibly difficult tasks, the son of Dhritarashtra will learn via his spies.

As a result, this pledge we made cannot be kept and was just imposed on us in order to force us to serve another thirteen years. The sastras agree with me when I assert that a promise that has been broken is invalid. For breaching such a vow, a fatigued bull should get no more punishment than a handful of grass. You should make a decision to murder our enemy right away. A kshatriya has no higher obligation.”

Bhima never got weary of arguing for his position. Draupadi would also cite passages from the Vedas that caused Yudhishthira worry when he thought of the humiliation she had endured at the hands of Duryodhana, Karna, and Duhsasana.
On occasion, he would respond by using well-known political adages and making mention of the relative power of the parties. He’d state: “Some of the followers of our adversary are Bhurisravas, Bhishma, Drona, Karna, and Aswatthama.
The brothers and Duryodhana are skilled warriors. Both powerful kings and numerous feudatory princes are now on their side. Even though Bhishma and Drona don’t appreciate Duryodhana’s character, they won’t abandon him and are willing to die fighting beside him. Karna is an experienced combatant who is bold and skilled with many types of weaponry. The outcome of a conflict is unclear, and its progress is unpredictable. It serves no use to act rashly.” As a result, Yudhishthira had to control the younger Pandavas’ impatience.

Arjuna later travelled to the Himalayas to practise austerities in order to get new weapons from the devas, as directed by Vyasa. After saying goodbye to his brothers, Arjuna headed to Panchali to say his final goodbyes.

She uttered: “May you succeed in your task, Dhananjaya. May God provide you all Kuntidevi desired and hoped for before she gave birth to you. You are responsible for our collective happiness, survival, honour, and success. After getting new weapons, come back.” Panchali so sent him on his way with fortunate words.

Even though Draupadi’s wife’s speech was heard, Kunti’s mother’s words of blessing stood out because they read, “May God grant all that Kuntidevi dreamed and hoped for when you were born.”

Arjuna arrived to the summit of Indrakila after traversing thick jungles, where he saw an elderly brahmana. The hermit grinned and said to Arjuna with affection, “You are armed and wearing armour. So who are you? Here, weapons have no use. In this home of ascetics and saints who have subdued rage and desire, what do you seek dressed as a Kshatriya?”

That was the ruler of the gods, Indra, who had come to greet his son.

To his father, Arjuna bowed and said: “I want weapons. Give me weapons, please.” Indra answered: “O Dhananjaya, what use do weapons serve? Ask for joys or try to find happiness in greater worlds.”

Arjuna responded: “I don’t covet the delights of the upper worlds, O monarch of gods.

I left Panchali and my brothers in the jungle and came here. I only seek weapons.”

According to the thousand-eyed “You will be given heavenly weapons if you are granted the three-eyed deity Siva’s blessing and win his favour. Make restitution to Siva.”

Consequently stating Indra vanished Arjuna then travelled to the Himalayas to perform atonement in order to win Siva’s favour.
Siva went the jungle in search of prey while posing as a hunter and was joined by his celestial spouse Umadevi. Arjuna discharged an arrow into the charging wild boar with his Gandiva bow while the hunter Siva transfixed it with a shaft from his Pinaka bow as the pursuit became rapid and fierce.

Arjuna said loudly: “So who are you? Why are you and your wife wandering about in this forest? I was aiming at the game you shot at, how could you?”

The hunter said, perhaps with disdain: “We, who reside there, are the owners of this game-filled forest. You don’t have the physique of a forester.

Your limbs and bearing suggest a gentle, opulent existence. I should probably inquire what you’re doing here.” He also said that the boar had been slain by his arrow and that Arjuna was welcome to engage in a duel if he felt differently.

Arjuna could not have been more pleased. He sprang up and shot Siva with arrows that resembled snakes. He was astounded when they appeared to have no impact on the hunter and retreated painlessly, like rain falling from a mountain summit during a storm.

He began to shoot Siva with his bow once he ran out of arrows. However, the hunter didn’t appear to notice and quickly yanked Arjuna’s bow from his hands before laughing.

Arjuna was taken aback and nearly doubtful after witnessing how easily someone who appeared to be a typical woodland hunter disarmed him. Unfazed, he drew his sword and carried on the battle.

On the hunter’s hardened physique, the sword broke into fragments. Now, all that remained was to face the terrifying unknown. But once more he was outclassed.

In a tight iron clutch from the hunter, Arjuna was rendered completely defenceless. Worn out and overpowered, Arjuna meekly prayed to God and focused on Siva. As he was doing this, a light suddenly appeared in his clouded head, and he realised who the hunter actually was.

He knelt at the Bhagwan’s feet and begged for pardon with a broken voice of regret and affection. Siva grinned and replied, “I forgive you,” handing him back his Gandiva bow and the other weapons he had lost. Arjuna received the magnificent Pasupata weapon from him as well.

A hundred times stronger and more dazzling than before, Arjuna’s body, ravaged in the unfair conflict, was restored whole and faultless by the heavenly touch of the three-eyed deity.

Siva replied, “Go to heaven and give due homage to your father Indra,” and then he disappeared from sight like the sun.
Arjuna, filled with excitement, cried out: “Have I actually encountered the Bhagwan in person and received his holy blessings? What else do I require?”

At that very time, Matali, Indra’s charioteer, arrived there in his chariot and transported Arjuna to the realm of the gods.
