Mahabharat Chapter 63 Yudhishthira Took Blessings of Drona for Victory

Chapter 63 Yudhishthira Took Blessings of Drona for Victory

For the start of the conflict, everything was prepared. Both armies watched in astonishment when Yudhishthira, the tenacious and valiant son of Pandu, abruptly removed his armour and put his weapons aside at this crucial juncture. He got down of his chariot and walked over to the leader of the Kaurava soldiers.

Everyone was perplexed by Yudhishthira’s unexpected and silent action and wondered, “What is this that Yudhishthira is doing?”

Dhananjaya, who was also confused, sprang off his chariot and sprinted toward Yudhishthira. Krishna and the other brothers also joined.
They worried that Yudhishthira could have suddenly resolved to seek peace on any conditions by giving in to his natural tendency and was moving forward to make this known.

“King, why are you making your way to the enemy’s trenches in such an odd way? You have kept your silence. The adversary is prepared for fight, with armoured men and raised weaponry. But you are moving forward unattended and on foot while taking off your armour and setting aside your weapons. Tell us about yourself.” To Dharmaputra, Arjuna spoke as such. But Yudhishthira moved silently because he was really contemplating something.

Then Vasudeva, who was adept at reading men’s souls, grinned and said: “Before starting this horrible war, he is going to the elders to seek their blessing. He believes that starting such a serious process without seeking official blessing and consent is improper. He visits the grandsire to receive Dronacharya’s and his blessing. Thus, he enters unarmed. He is right to carry out this action. He is aware of propriety. Only in this way can we hope to win this conflict.”

The soldiers in Duryodhana’s army observed Yudhishthira moving forward with his hands folded in a modest manner and thought: “Here comes the Pandava, terrified by our might, to demand peace. This individual in fact casts shame upon the kshatriya race. Why did this coward come into the world?”

They discussed Dharmaputra in this manner, mocking him while exulting at the idea of winning without using force.

After passing through the rows of fully armed men, Yudhishthira walked directly to Bhishma and saluted him by bowing low and placing his feet on his “Sir, let’s start the combat now. You are our unbeatable and unparalleled grandsire, and we have the audacity to engage you in combat. Before we start the battle, we pray for blessings.”

“Being a member of the Bharata race, you have behaved honourably and in accordance with our code of conduct, the grandsire retorted. I find it uplifting to see this. Fight, and you will succeed. I do not have any options. I am required to support the Kauravas in battle because of my duty to the monarch. But you won’t give up easily.”

Yudhishthira went to Drona after getting the grandsire’s approval and blessings in this way. He performed the ritual circumambulation and bowed to the acharya, who also gave his blessings, saying: “I am grateful for your permission and blessings.”

Drona added, “O son of Dharma, I have unavoidable obligations to the Kauravas. Our own interests imprison us and take control of us. I have joined the Kauravas as a result of this. I’ll support them in the battle. But the triumph will be yours.”

Similar to how Yudhishthira did, he went to get the blessings of uncle Salya and Kripacharya before heading back to the Pandava lines.
The main chiefs engaged in single combats with equal weaponry to start the conflict. Great wars were therefore fought between Bhishma and Partha,

Satyaki and Kritavarma, Abhimanyu and Brihatbala, Duryodhana and Bhima, Yudhishthira and Salya, and Dbrishtadyumna and Drona. Thousands of other soldiers engaged in several battles in accordance with the laws of war in use at the time.In addition to the countless one-on-one battles between famous fighters, there was also indiscriminate warfare between regular troops. Such unrestrained warfare and promiscuous slaughter were given the label “sankula yuddha”. There were a lot of these “sankula” clashes at the Battle of Kurukshetra, when countless soldiers died fighting and dying for the love of war. There were heaps of dead horses, elephants, charioteers, and troops on the battlefield.

The ground turned into a gory muck that was challenging for the chariots to manoeuvre through. Single combats don’t exist in contemporary warfare. All of it is “sankula.”

For 10 days, the Kauravas battled under Bhishma’s leadership. Drona took the order after him. When Drona passed away, Karna took over as commander. Karna died at the end of the conflict on day seventeen. The final day was the eighteenth, and Salya commanded the Kaurava force.

Many brutal and unchivalrous acts were carried out in the closing stages of the struggle. There is an inherent nobility in human nature, therefore chivalry and the laws of battle endure. But men find themselves in challenging circumstances and temptations that they are powerless to withstand, especially when they are worn out from battle and twisted by hatred and violence.

Even great men make mistakes, and their transgressions serve as poor role models for others. As a result, dharma is ignored more frequently and readily.
As a result, violence produces and feeds adharma, engulfing the world in evil.
