Mahabharat Chapter 30 Balrama's Worry About the Pandavas

Chapter 30 Balrama’s Worry and Yudhishthira Consoled

Balrama and Krishna travelled to the Pandavas’ woodland home with their entourage. Balarama, who was much troubled by what he observed, exclaimed to Krishna: “O Krishna, it would appear that good and evil produce opposing results in this world. See, although the good Yudhishthira dwells in the wilderness wearing the bark of trees, the evil Duryodhana rules his realm while dressed in silk and gold. Men have lost confidence in God as a result of such unearned wealth and suffering. When we observe the actual effects of good and evil in this life, the glorification of virtue in the sastras appears to be mere mummery. When Dhritarashtra is confronted by the deity of death, how will he defend himself and explain his actions? At the sight of the spotless Pandavas living in the forests with the fortunate Draupadi, born from the sacrifice fire, even the mountains and the earth mourn.”

The person next, Satyaki, said: “O Balarama, this is not the time to weep. Should we wait till Yudhishthira requests that we perform our obligation to the Pandavas? Why should the Pandavas squander their valuable years in the wilderness while you, Krishna, and all of your other relatives are still alive? Let’s gather our resources and go after Duryodhana. We can definitely defeat the Kauravas with the help of the army of the Vrishnis. Why is it necessary to remove Karna’s head and thwart his renowned archery? If the Pandavas want to maintain their vow and remain in the forest, let’s murder Duryodhana and his supporters on the battlefield and give the kingdom to Abhimanyu. This benefits them and is appropriate for us as brave mans.”

Vasudeva, who was attentively following this discourse, remarked: “It’s true what you say. However, the Pandavas do not want to accept from others what they have not earned themselves. Draupadi, who was from a brave race, would not agree to it. For reasons of love or fear, Yudhishthira will never abandon the path of justice. The kings of Panchala, Kekaya, and Chedi, as well as ourselves, shall combine our forces when the predetermined period of exile is finished to aid the Pandavas in overcoming their adversaries.”

Yudhishthira was overjoyed by Krishna’s comments. He said, “Sri Krishna is aware of my thoughts. Truth must always be protected because it is more important than wealth or power, not the kingdom. He will discover us prepared to fight when he wants us to. Now that we had met once before, the heroes of the Vrishni race may depart with confidence.” Yudhishthira then gave them permission to go back.

Since Arjuna was still gone in the Himalayas, Bhima’s worry and agitation reached nearly unmanageable levels. Yudhishthira heard him say, “As you are aware, Arjuna is crucial to our survival. He’s been gone for a very long time, and we haven’t heard anything about him. If he were to leave us, neither the king of Panchala, Satyaki, or even Sri Krishna could save us, and I for one could not endure such a loss. All of this is due to the crazy dice game, our pains and anguish, and the increasing might of our enemies. The responsibility imposed on a kshatriya is not to reside in a forest. We must quickly summon out Arjuna and, with the aid of Sri Krishna, fight the sons of Dhritarashtra. I won’t be content until the evil Sakuni, Karna, and Duryodhana are killed. You are free to go back to the wilderness and lead an austere lifestyle once this obvious obligation is completed, if you so choose. Killing an opponent with a stratagem is not sinful if they have used one. I’ve heard that the Atharva Veda has incantations that may shorten and compress time. We would be absolutely justified in doing so if we could condense thirteen years into thirteen days, and you would allow me to execute Duryodhana on the fourteenth day.”

When Dharmaputra heard Bhima say these things, he gave him a warm embrace while trying to calm him down. “Beloved brother, once the thirteen-year span has passed, you and Arjuna, the hero, shall engage in combat and kill Duryodhana with the Gandiva bow. Till then, have patience. The enslaved in sin Duryodhana and his supporters are unable to flee. You can depend on it.”
The renowned sage Brihadaswa visited the Pandavas’ hermitage and was welcomed with the traditional honours when the bereaved brothers were debating at this time.

Soon after, Yudhishthira addressed him and said: “Our cunning adversaries, the revered guru, lured us into this dice game, defrauded us of our kingdom and wealth, and drove Panchali and I into the jungle together with my brave brothers. We have been without Arjuna for a very long time since he departed to get heavenly weapons. Will he come back with angelic arms? When will he return, exactly? There has undoubtedly never been a man in this planet who has experienced as much suffering as I have.”

The wise man responded, “Don’t let sadness consume your thoughts. You will defeat your opponents in the appropriate amount of time when Arjuna returns bearing heavenly weapons. You assert that no one is more unlucky than you are in this world. Now, that is not true, despite the fact that everyone who has experienced hardship tends to assert superiority in their grief since what is felt is more important than what is heard or seen. Have you heard about Nishadha’s king Nala? Even in the jungle, he went through more sufferings than you did. At a game of dice, Pushkara tricked him. He was forced into exile in the wilderness after losing his wealth and country. He wasn’t as lucky as you in that he didn’t have his brothers or brahmanas with him. His discernment and common sense were taken away by Kali, the spirit of the dark ages. Unaware of what he was doing, he abandoned his wife, who had been travelling with him, and went out alone and nearly insane through the jungle. Now contrast your condition with his. In times of struggle, you have the support of your brave brothers, your loving wife, and a few wise brahmanas. You have a clear, stable intellect. It’s normal to feel sorry for yourself, but you actually don’t have it that terrible.”

The great sage then related the incidents that make up Nala’s life.

The sage continued by saying: “Nala through suffering that was more agonising than yours, yet he overcame it all, and his life ended pleasantly. You benefit from clear intelligence and the company of those who are close to you. You spend a lot of time in holy conversation with brahmanas who are versed in the Vedas and Vedantas as well as in elevated contemplation of dharma. Take courage in facing your difficulties since they are part of life for everyone, not just you.”

Yudhishthira was comforted by the sage Brihadaswa in this way.
