Mahabharat Chapter 96 Dhritarashtra Cried and Gandhari Controlled Fury of Her Eyes

Chapter 96 Dhritarashtra Cried and Gandhari Controlled Fury of Her Eyes

Hastinapura was a city in grief after the conflict. All of the ladies and kids were sobbing and mourning the deaths of their loved ones. Dhritarashtra entered the field of combat with tens of thousands of grieving ladies. At Kurukshetra, the site of horrible carnage, the blind monarch reflected on everything that had happened and sobbed openly. But what good did crying do?

“O king, comforting remarks said to a grieving person do not take away his pain. For your boys, thousands of kings have devoted their lives in combat. It is now necessary for you to organise respectable last rites for the deceased.” Sanjaya addressed Dhritarashtra.

“It is improper to shed tears for combat casualties. There is nothing like a connection, nothing like a brother, son, or family once spirits have departed their bodies. Really, you have nothing to do with your boys. Relationships terminate with death since they are simply physical connections and insignificant blips in the soul’s everlasting life. Lives emerge from nowhere, and at death, they go back into nothing. Why do we need to cry for them? After a valiant fight, those who pass away in combat are welcomed as guests to partake of Indra’s hospitality. You cannot obtain anything in the form of dharma, pleasure, or money while grieving for the past.” The wise and righteous Vidura made several further attempts to comfort the grieving monarch.

Additionally, Vyasa softly walked up to Dhritarashtra and said: “Nothing has to be taught to you by me, my dear son; you already know everything. You are well aware that all living things eventually pass away. According to Bhagwan Vishnu Himself, the purpose of this significant conflict was to lighten the weight of the world. Because of this, the disaster could not be avoided. Yudhishthira is now considered to be your son. Try your best to love him and, in doing so, bear the weight of life while letting go of sorrow.”

Yudhishthira manoeuvred his way past the mass of sobbing women before approaching Dhritarashtra and bowing to him. There was no affection in Dhritarashtra’s embrace of Yudhishthira.

The blind king was then informed of Bhimasena. Dhritarashtra called out, “Come.”

Vasudeva was nonetheless sage. Since he was aware of Dhritarashtra’s extreme rage, he gently shoved Bhima aside and set an iron figure in front of the blind monarch. Dhritarashtra tightly embraced the metal statue to his chest as he suddenly realised that this man had murdered all of his sons. The iron  statue was destroyed in his hug as his rage reached an all-time high.

“Ha! My rage has misled me, “Dhritarashtra said. “Dear Bhima, I have slain you,”

When the king became blind, Krishna remarked to him, “Lord, I foresaw this outcome and averted the catastrophe. Bhimasena has not been slain by you. Only an iron statue, which I had alternatively put before you, was destroyed by you. I hope what you have done to this statue has calmed your rage.
Bhima has not expired.”

The monarch eventually regained his composure and blessed Bhima and the other Pandavas before they left to travel to Gandhari.

Gandhari was with Vyasa.

“Oh queen, don’t be upset with the Pandavas,” the Rishi advised.

“Did you not say to them before the fight even started,” “Where there is dharma, there will be victory? So that actually did happen. It is improper to let one’s mind linger on the past and harbour anger. You must now appeal for help with your impressive tenacity.”

Gandhari declared: “Bhagavan, I do not envy the Pandavas’ triumph. It’s true that my comprehension has been taken from me by my sadness at the loss of my sons. My sons are these Pandavas as well. I am aware that Duhsasana and Sakuni were responsible for the annihilation of our people. Bhima and Arjuna are innocent. This conflict was started out of pride, and my boys deserved their fate. I don’t bemoan it, though. But after that, Bhima summoned Duryodhana to war and they engaged in combat in front of Vasudeva. Bhima murdered Duryodhana by striking him below the navel since he knew that he was stronger than him and couldn’t be defeated in one on one fight. Vasudeva was observing. This was wrong, and for that reason I can’t forgive you.”

When Bhima heard this, he approached and said: “Mother, I did this to protect my life during combat. Please bear with me whether it was right or wrong. Your son was unbeatable in battle, therefore I unquestionably made a mistake out of self-preservation. He tricked Yudhishthira by inviting him to a game. Your kid had mistreated us in so many ways. He refused to return the kingdom, which he had illegally seized. You are aware of what your son did to Draupadi, who was innocent. You wouldn’t have blamed us if we had shot your kid dead on the spot for acting inappropriately in the Assembly Hall, I’m sure of it. We struggled to control ourselves since we were bound by Dharmaraja’s pledge at the time. Since then, we have paid off our debt to honour and discovered joy in conflict. Mother, you ought to pardon me.”

“Dear Son, if you had murdered all but one of my 100 boys and satiated your rage by doing so, I and my elderly husband would have found comfort in that lone survivor for the rest of our days. Dharmaputra is where? call him.” She spoke.

As he approached Gandhari, whose eyes were wrapped in a cloth as a faithful lifetime penance for her husband’s blindness, Yudhishthira shook as he said this. He knelt down in front of her and whispered, “The murderer of your boys, the evil Yudhishthira, now stands before you, deserving of a curse. Curse me, because I have done tremendous sin. I don’t give a damn about life or kingdom.” As he was saying that, he collapsed to the ground and touched her feet.

Gandhari let out a long sigh before remaining silent. She turned her head away, aware that the moment her gaze touched the prostrate Yudhishthira through the material that closed her eyes, he would instantly burn to ashes. Even though she turned her gaze away, she could still see Yudhishthira’s toe through a little opening in the fabric. The toe became burned black instantly.

Arjuna concealed himself behind Vasudeva because he was aware of the severity of grieving Gandhari’s fury. The sage and upright Gandhari restrained her rage and despatched the Pandavas to Kunti with blessings.

Gandhari turned to face Draupadi, who was weeping after losing all of her sons.

“Dear daughter,” Gandhari remarked. “Do not weep. Who can comfort both you and I? I am personally blame for the complete annihilation of this wonderful people.”
