Direct all your energy towards the soul and not the ego

The epic Mahabharata can also be understood as a science of inner Mahabharata happening in everybody’s mind.

Lord Krishna symbolizes the consciousness and the five Pandavas, the five positive qualities of a person namely, righteousness (Yudhishthir), focus (Arjuna), power to fight injustice (Bheem), helping others (Sahdev) and learning to be neutral in difficult situations (Nakul). Panchali indicates the five senses, which can only be controlled when these five forces are together.

Dhritarashtra symbolizes ignorance, Duhshasan negative ruling quality (dusht while ruling) and Duryodhana (dusht in yudh) one who is not balanced in war.

Conscious-based decisions need to be taken to kill the negativity in the mind. Every action, if directed towards the consciousness or the soul, is the right action. To kill all the 100 Kauravas (the 100 negative tendencies a person can have) controlled by Duryodhan and Duhshasan along with Shakuni (the negative power of cunningness), positive qualities have to be redirected towards consciousness and then take right decisions.

The five Pandavas (positive qualities) made soul (Lord Krishna) as their point of reference (Sarthi) and won over the evils (Kauravas).

Bhishma Pitamah, Karna and Dronacharya, individually all had winning powers; but, they all supported negative thoughts and made Duryodhana as their point of reference and ultimately had to die.

The message is very clear, if one directs his or her positive powers towards ego as the reference point in long run, they will be of no use and, in fact, will be responsible for one’s destruction.

Ravana too was a great scholar but he directed all his energies and powers towards his ego and ended up in misery.

Therefore, one should cultivate a positive mental attitude, positive thoughts instead of directing them towards desire, attachment or ego and should direct them to soul/consciousness for a positive outcome.

The epic Mahabharata can also be understood as a science of inner Mahabharata happening in everybody’s mind.

Lord Krishna here symbolizes with consciousness and the five Pandavas with five positive qualities of a person and they are – righteousness (Yudhishthir), being in focus (Arjuna), power to fight injustice (Bheem), helping others (Sahdev) and learning to be neutral in difficult situations (Nakul). Panchali indicates 5 senses which can only be controlled when these five forces are together.

Dhratrashtra symbolizes with ignorance, Duhshasan with negative ruling quality ( dusht while ruling) and Duryodhana (dusht in yudh) with one who is not balanced in war.

To kill the negativity in the mind, one has to take conscious based decisions. Every action, if directed towards the consciousness or the soul, is the right action. To kill the 100 Kauravas (the 100 negative tendencies a person can have) controlled by Duryodhan and Duhshasan along with Shakuni (the negative power of cunningness), one has to redirect one’s positive qualities towards the consciousness and take right decisions.

The five Pandavas (positive qualities) made soul (Lord Krishna) as their point of reference (Sarthi) and won over the evils (Kauravas).

Bhishma Pitamah, Karana and Draunacharya, all had winning powers individually but they all gave support to the negative thoughts and made Duryodhana as their point of reference and ultimately had to die.

The message is very clear – if one directs his or her positive powers towards ego as the reference point in long run, they will be of no use and, in fact, will be responsible for one’s destruction.

In Ramayana, Ravana was a great scholar but he directed all his energies and powers towards his ego and ended up in misery.

One should cultivate, therefore, positive mental attitude, positive thoughts instead of directing them towards desire, attachment or ego and should direct them to soul/consciousness for a positive outcome.

In mythology, the Pandavas represent the necessary five qualities which one should have. Yudhishthir means one who is balanced in war state of mind or in dilemma [Yudh means war and isthir means balanced].  Yudhishthir indicate the quality of being balanced and static during any diversity or facing a problem.

Arjuna indicates the focus quality of a person and Bheema represents the quality of inner strength. Nakul means to be neutral in life and Sahdeva means welfare of all.

These five qualities once acquired are sufficient to fight and kill the 100 Kauravas controlled by Shakuni, Duryodhana  and sushhasana.

Duryodhana means the one who is Dur (Dusht) in Yudha (war) or indicates negative thinking or negative choices.

Dushassana means the one who is Dusht while ruling. Shakuni represents cunning actions to acquire anything using Saam Daam Dand Bhed.

Dhratrashtra who is physically blind in mythology indicates ignorance and Gandhari who keeps he eyes closed willfully indicates the quality of closing the eyes when Adharma takes place (Dekh ke bhi andekha karna).
