Bhakthi Story: Dharmaraaya / Yudhisthira and his brothers in Naraka?

Dharmaraaya / Yudhisthira and his brothers in Naraka ?


It was the end time for all the Yadavas on this earth. All Yadavas fought with each other and got killed. Bhagavan Sri Krishna Paramaatma, after this phase of his life on earth went to aranyam for peace. He sat alone in the aranyam. The hunter by name Jara mistakenly thought the toe of the Bhagavan as the deer's and shot the arrow at the Bhagavan. It got struck at the middle of the toe of the Bhagavan. Later Bhagavan called the hunter Jara and told him that he was Vaali in his previous life. Bhagavan Sri Rama Chandra had told to Vaali that in his next life as Bhagavan Sri Krishna Paramaatma, Vaali can kill swayam Bhagavan similarly as Bhagavan Sri Rama Chandra had killed Vaali.
After the physical body of the Bhagavan Sri Krishna Paramaatma left this earth all the pancha Pandavas along with Maata Draupadi lost there interest in this material life and started moving towards the Himalayas. with them was also a Swanam (Dog). After walking long-long distance all six started to feel the exhaustion. First Maata Draupadi left this earth, then it was Sahadeva, then it was Nakula, later it was Gandivi (Arjuna) and then later it was the Vaayu Swarupi Bhima. Thus Dharmaraaya lost all his brothers and Maata Draupadi.
By this time Dharmaraaya had lost all his interest in life, but he did not lost Dharma. He still kept on walking along with the Swanam. Then after some time Lord Indra Deva came in front of Dharmaraaya along with his ratha and asked Dharmaraaya to come inside the ratha. Dharmaraaya along with his Swanam started to move inside the ratha. But Lord Indra Deva insisted that no Swanams are allowed inside his chariot or inside the Swarga Loka. But the Dharmishtta, Yudhisthira told Lord Indra that without this Swanam he won't come along Lord Indra. Later Swanam took the shape of the Swayam Dharma itself (Lord Yama Deva) and told Yudhisthira that he has not lost his Dharma even at the end of life. Thus Yudhisthira went to Swarga Loka and saw Duryodhana their. He also saw Dushasana, Shakuni and many such kind of people. But he was surprised that he was not able to see his Mother Maata Kuni Devi, his wife Maata Draupadi Devi, his beloved younger brother Nakula & Sahadeva. His very close brother Arjuna. His mighty brother Bhima. Also he was not able to see his Pitamaha Bhisma or his guru Drona or his elder brother Karana. Dharmaraaya was in complete shock and surprised to see only the Kaurava clan and not his closest people. Thus Dharmaraaya asked Lord Indra Deva, why only Duryodhana, the adhama and his brothers & his close friends & relatives are present and why his own people are missing. Than Lord Indra Deva ordered one of the Demi-God and told him to show where all the Yudhisthira's people are.
That Demi-God took Yudhisthira to a place where only blood was flowing, where only bones were spread all over the place, where only hairs were scattered all over. It was a place where the bad smell was present. Where skulls of all types of living beings were present. Seeing all these, in Yudhisthira's mind thousands of questions started to flow. He started to think that what type of sins his sinless wife Maata Draupadi had done to be in this type of place, what type of sins his beloved younger brothers Sahadeva and Nakula had done to be in this type of place. What type of sins his close brother Arjuna has done, what type of sins does his mighty brother Bhima has done, what type of sins does his pitamaha has does and what type of sins does his all close friends, relatives, Gurus and others have done to be in place like this.
After thinking all these types of things, Yudhisthira turned on to the Demi-God and started to question him. Than again that Demi-God changes his Pratiroopam into Dharma (Lord Yama) and tells Yudhisthira that "Oh Great King, Oh Dharmishtta, Oh Dharmaraaya, My Son, you have again passed on the test which was conducted by Bhagavan Srimann Narayana". After this, Yudhisthira starts to see full of light around his. It started to be a blissfull place, full of Demi-Gods and related people of Swarga Loka. Yudhisthira see the place where the Swargadhipati lives. He sees all the Ashtta Digpaalakas. He sees all the Saptarushis their. Yudhisthira's face suddenly started to glow. He sees all his brothers, Maata Draupadi, Bhisma, and all his beloved people including the Kaurava brothers. Now Narada Maharushi comes and explains to Yudhisthira that he has passed the test and infact he is standing in the Swarga Loka.

Bhagavan always tests his beloved. Bhagavan tests more who like to follow the path of Dharma. He initially holds the hands of all the people, but he never leaves the hands of the people who follow the path of Dharma and Bhakthi.

Bhakthi Story: Krishna killed Ekalavya, but why?

Krishna killed Ekalavya, but why?




We all know that Ekalavya had made the clay statue of the Guru Dronacharya and he was practicing the Dhanur Vidya and was also had become master in some of the Dhanur Vidyas. 
After some time, Dronacharya comes to know about the Ekalavya practicing Dhanur Vidya by keeping a statue of himself. Once Dronacharya meets Ekalavya and asks him "why are you practicing Dhanur Vidya by keeping my statue in front" and for this Ekalavya replies that "Guru Deva I have accepted you as my Guru and I have been practicing Dhanur Vidya since than". 
Than Dronacharya after few days again meet Ekalavya and asks him right hand's Thumb finger as the Guru dakshina. Ekalavya without any hesitation cuts off his finger to give his Thumb as the Guru dakshina to his Guru Dronacharya. 
We should think why Guru Dronacharya did like this?. Was Guru Dronacharya was jealous of Ekalavya that one day Ekalavya will become a much better Dhanur Vidyashali than the Nara…

Maharshi Kashyapa, his wives and there children

Maharshi Kashyapa, his wives and there children




Kashyapa married thirteen of Daksha’s daughters. Their names were Aditi, Diti, Danu, Arishta, Surasa, Khasa, Surabhi, Vinata, Tamra, Krodhavasha, Ida, Kadru and Muni.

Aditi’s sons were the twelve gods known as the adityas. Their names were Vishnu, Shakra, Aryama, Dhata, Vidhata, Tvashta, Pusha, Vivasvana, Savita, Mitravaruna, Amsha and Bhaga.

Diti’s sons were the daityas (demons). They were named Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakshipu, and amongst their descendants were several other powerful daityas like Vali and Vanasura. Diti also had a daughter named Simhika who was married to a danava (demon) named Viprachitti. Their offsprings were terrible demons like Vatapi, Namuchi, Ilvala, Maricha and the nivatakavachas.

The hundred sons of Danu came to be known as danavas. The danavas were thus cousins to the daityas and also to the adityas. In the danava line were born demons like the poulamas and kalakeyas.

Arishta’s sons were the gandharvas (singers of h…

Fighting between Krishna and Shiva: Story of Vanasura (Banasura), Usha and Anirudhha

Fighting between Krishna and Shiva: Story of Vanasura (Banasura), Usha and Anirudhha

Krishna had more than one lakh and eighty thousand sons. But the best of them was Pradyumna and Pradyumna’s son was Aniruddha. 
Vali’s son was Vanasura and Vanasura’s daughter was Usha. Usha once met Parvati and Shiva. She asked Parvati who her husband would be. Parvati replied that in the month of Vaishakha a person would appear in Usha’s dreams. And this person would be her husband.

As promised by Parvati, Usha did see a person in her dreams. But she did not know how this person was. She told her friend Chitraleka about this. Chitralekha thought that the only way to find out was to show Usha the protraits of various important personages amongst the devas, gandharvas and asuras. But the required person could not be identified from these portraits. Usha was then shown the portraits of humans and immediately she identified Aniruddha."

Many years ago, Vanasura had prayed to Mahadeva," he had said,…

Atithi Devo Bhava - Guest is God - Story of Kapota pakshis (Dove birds)

Atithi Devo Bhava - Guest is God - Story of Kapota pakshis (Dove birds)



In a parvatam known as Brahmagiri there used to live a hunter who was very kruri. He not only killed pakshis and praanis, but also brahmanas and rushis as well.

The hunter once went on a hunt. He killed many praanis nand pakshis and some he put in his panjaram. He had penetrated so far inside the aranyam that he was far from his gruham. It became raatri and also started to varsham. Hungry and thirsty, the hunter lost his way. He climbed up a vruksham and decided to spend the raatri there. But his mind kept going back to his ardhangini and shishus at his gruham.

For many years a dove and its kutumbam had lived happily on that vruksham. Both the purusha and the stree pakshis had gone out to look for aahaaram. But although the purusha dove had returned to the nest, the stree dove had not. In fact, the stree had been captured by the hunter and was now inside a panjaram. The male did not know this. He mourned for his wife…

The real meaning of Arya:

The real meaning of Arya:



We all think that Arya is only used by the north Indians, whereas it is Dravida in south India. 
But is it true? Is it correct? But according to our great sages the real meaning is something different. ARYA according to Rushi Valmiki means giving respect to any person. Just like at present day we use Sri, Sir, Mr., etc, our ancestors were using as Arya Putra or Arya Kanya or Arya Rama or Arya Arjuna etc. Arya is nothing but the prefix to any name. Just like we use Sri. Mahatma Gandhiji. Earlier it was Arya. Mahatma Gandhiji.
In Vedic Literature, the word Arya is nowhere defined in connection with either race or language. Instead it refers to: gentleman, good-natured, righteous person, noble-man, and is often used like ‘Sir’ or ‘Shree’ before the name of a person like Aryaputra, Aryakanya, etc.
In Ramayana (Valmiki), Rama is described as an Arya in the following words: Arya – who cared for the equality to all and was dear to everyone.
Etymologically, according to M…

Yudham (War) between Suras (Gods) and Asuras (Demons)

Yudham (War) between Suras (Gods) and Asuras (Demons):





There were twelve major wars between the devas and the asuras. The first of these was known as the Narasimha War. This took place when Hiranyakashipu was the king of the asuras. Vishnu adopted the form of Narashimha and killed Hiranyakashipu. He then made Prahlada the king of the demons. The second war was the Vamana War and it took place when Vali was the king of the demons. Vishnu adopted the form of a dwarf (vamana) to subjugate the demons. The third war was the Varaha War and this took place when Hiranyaksha was the king of the demons. Vishnu adopted the form of a wild boar (varaha) and killed Hiranyaksha. The fourth war was the Amritamanthana War and this took place over the manthana (churning ) of the ocean for amrita (nectar). 

The fifth war between the devas and the asuras took place over the abduction of Tara and this came to be known as the Tarakamaya War. The sixth war was known as the Ajivaka War. The seventh war took pl…

Prachetas and there wife Marisha

Prachetas and there wife Marisha





In the vamsham of the Raaja Prithu, there was a Raaja called Raaja Prachinvarhi, whose vivaaham took place with the putri of Samudra Raaja, Savarana. With this vivaaham ten putras were born and they were known as Prachetas. These ten Prachetas performed ghana-ghora tapasya for ten thousand years inside the samudram. Here we should know why the ten Prachetas performed this type of tapasya for ten thousand years. Earlier BrahmaDeva had informed Raaja Prachinvarhi to make this bhoomandalam with lot of manushyas (people). So Raaja Prachinvarhi passed this kaaryam to his ten putras. But the ten Prachetas were unaware to how to go ahead with this kaaryam. Also Prachetas' father told his putras to pray to Bhagavan Vishnu to initiate the kaaryam as told by BrahmaDeva. Thus after hearing from there father, Prachetas started the ghana-ghora tapasya under the samudram.
When the ten Prachetas completed ten thousand years of ghana-ghora tapasya, Bhagavan Srimann …
