Chapter 74 Karna Met Dying Bhisma and Sought Advice

Karna rushed to the scene after learning that Bhishma was there, dying from his wounds, and he uttered: “Eldest of all. The son of Radha, who did not do anything to deserve your tremendous wrath, humbly bows down before you.”

After a respectful greeting, as Karna stood up, his grandfather, who had been deeply touched, gently laid his hand on Karna’s head and gave him a blessing.

“Young man, you are Kuntidevi’s firstborn, not Radha’s, he stated in a loving tone. Narada, who is aware of all the world’s secrets, directly told this to me. Son of Surya, I genuinely had no ill feelings toward you. But even though the Pandavas didn’t deserve your animosity, I was saddened to watch it grow. I am aware of and respect your bravery and generosity. In terms of prowess, I am also aware that you are in the same league as Phalguna and Krishna. You ought to become friends with the Pandavas. You, their brother, are on the correct track if you follow that. May the chapter of your hostility conclude along with my involvement in this battle. That’s what I want, Karna.”

Karna politely listened and responded: “Grandsire I am aware that I am Kunti’s child, not a charioteer’s child. To be faithful to my own ancestry and Duryodhana, though, I must have consumed his salt. I’m unable to join the Pandavas at this time. I have made many mistakes in word and deed, and you must allow me to atone for them with my life, if that is what it takes. You must accept my apology and grant me your blessing.”

The great acharya said, “Do contemplate for a time and then do as you desire, for it is the appropriate way,” knowing all the rules of proper conduct and what Karna had stated. The fight continued even while Bhishma lay dying and was gravely wounded. The Kauravas ignored the grandsire’s advice and continued their conflict.

When Bhishma ceased to be their commander, the Kaurava troops felt abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd. The men cried out, “O Karna, you are the one remaining to command and safeguard us,” even as Bhishma lay bleeding.

The Kaurava soldiers believed that victory was inevitable if only Karna would consent to accept the command. The son of Surya stayed out of the war for the first 10 days while Bhishma commanded the troops.

Karna had spoken the following after being greatly upset by the grandsire’s disrespect: “I’ll stay away from you as long as you are engaged in battle. I would be happy if you kill the Pandavas and give Duryodhana triumph. And when the king has left, I’ll head to the forest. However, if you lose and depart for the home of the courageous, I—whom you do not regard as an adhiratha (master of chariot warfare)—will ride my chariot and engage in combat with those whom you believe to be more skilled than myself. And by beating them, Duryodhana will triumph.”

Karna had made the aforementioned oath and, with Duryodhana’s approval, had abstained from the combat for the first 10 days. He then walked on foot to Bhishma, who was waiting to die on his bed of arrows. He saluted him and said, “V “You lie on the field of battle, teran grandsire, victor of Parasurama, killed by Sikhandin. It is obvious that no one can achieve in this world what he or she deserves on the basis of merit if you, who had attained the pinnacle of moral life and was the very personification of purity, must lie wounded in this way. The Kaurava princes relied only on you to help them get beyond the deluge of their problems.

The Kauravas will suffer greatly as a result of the heavy blows that the Pandavas will now deliver to them. Arjuna and Krishna will annihilate the Kauravas’ army much as fire and wind tore through the jungle. This is a given. Bless me, who have taken over the command of the army, with your kind gaze.”
Karna received the benediction of Bhishma.

“You are trustworthy and steadfast in your allegiance, much like the wonderful earth is to seeds and rain clouds are to living things. Save Duryodhana by serving him. For him, you defeated the Kambojas. You lower the Himalayan fastnesses’ Kiratas for him. On his behalf, you engaged in battle with and overcame the Girivrajas. You’ve done a lot more things for him. Now take control of the Kaurava army as your own valuable asset, and take good care of it. May you successfully command Duryodhana’s soldiers! May you be blessed with success! Go and fight your foes.”

After receiving the grandsire’s blessing, Karna ascended his chariot and headed to the combat area. Duryodhana was ecstatic as soon as the brave Karna and his war chariot arrived on the scene. In some ways, his grief over losing Bhishma was lessened.
