Or it simply says a journey of five brothers in the jungle. To search for water but he didn’t come for a long time. Moreover, he correctly answers the Yaksha’s philosophical queries. From our perspectives, man without desires can never be rich, nor can we lose our anger. Even I was able to grab some philosophical concepts which have always appeared as my subject of interest. The story seems to tall that we must be faithful and honest on our work. Not to drink water from the pool before answering his questions.
Mero Future August 4, at 2: Or it simply says a journey of five brothers in the jungle. But the deer in their sight disappeared suddenly. Modern people are chiefly concerned with material happiness. We should be as patience as Yudhisthira in time of danger. Posted by Bikalpa Kapri at 6: However, none of them returned for a long time.
Yudhishthira’s wisdom four levels
They were either dead or unconscious. This mythological story is taken from Mahabharata. After a short walk, he noticed a beautiful pool on the bank of which were lying all his brothers either unconscious or dead.
If we have selfish and careless attitude, that ruins our personality in particular and humanity in general. Should students be given such condensed adaptations of texts and then asked to judge them out of context?
Then Yudhisthira chose Nakula on the moral ground. Yama, the God of Justice and Death, whereas his brother had disobeyed him and as such were prostrate flat on the ground. Then Yudhishthira goes to search for his brothers. Here is an example of applying the four reading levels to a particular text. While hunting for deer in a forest, the five Pandava brothers grow thirsty. He saw them lying on the ground near a pool. Once upon a time five Pandavas brother’s were wondering in a forest to hunt a deer.
Critiacl he was travelling with his other four brothers and the day was very sunny and hot. But an unknown voice warned him not to drink water before answering his questions.
Courage is his surest weapon in danger. It sounds a charming tale. Yudhisthira sent his one brother to fetch water from a nearby lake.
As we read the story thoroughly with concentration, we find that from the moral and religious thinknig of view the story is appreciable. As such in all these aspects, we disagree with the writer along with one event in which all the Pandava brothers are restored to life even after the death -this is absolutely impossible in reality.
The Yaksha wisdmo himself as Yama the god of justice and righteousnesstells Yudhishthira how pleased he is with his uprightness, restores to him his four brothers, promises him protection from future hardships, and gives him some useful advice on where to go next.
If we follow his wisdom we can make our life successful. Would life be worthwhile without desires? He gave the answers of all questions asked by Yaksha until Yaksha became pleased.
It was hot and they were tired. Here are a few examples of what skeptics might say about this charming tale. It focuses on wisdom; patience and loyalty to God are great human qualities. Yudhisthira did not no that they had ignored a yakshya’s warning not to drink the water of his pool until they answer his questions.
This might apply, in particular, to orally-derived ancient epics such as the Iliad and Odyssey, and perhaps also to such works as Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Dante’s Divine Comedy, and Cervantes’ Don Quixote.
We have a great concern over the answers given by Yudhisthira, which sound quite simple but such philosophical answers are not expected from the direct questions of Yama.
But now Yudhisthira’s brothers’ restoration of life has wiped out all my illusions and on my part, reverence to god has increased a lot. Patience, right conduct, wisdom, devotion as well endurance are not always rewarded on this earth.
Yaksha become more happy and revived all his brothers and suggested them to go to Matsya’s kingdom for safer life.
HIGHER STUDIES: Yudhisthira’s Wisdom
When he did not return, he sends the other three brothers one at a time. I now think that, in some instances, shorter versions of some texts have some virtues which the original text itself does not possess. The story is about the importance of patience, obedience to god’s wisdom and right conduct without which Pandava brothers would have been lost.
Furthermore, righteousness makes us feel good even after our death. Monday, July 2, Yudhisthira’s Wisdom.
