“Droupadi is the wife of Arjuna only” Sree Krishna said. “Is this an object to be shared?” Sree Krishna has stated arrowing the question: “Is it the culture to share one’s own wife to others ? Is it the morality to share one’s own wife with brothers ? In the justification of mothers word, is it the righteous argument of Yudhishtra to partake in such a heinous act ? Does sharing his own wife to others is the bravery of Arjuna ? Is it the importance of Yudhishtra and Bhima to make their brother wife their own ? Is it the path of virtue of Nakula and Sahadeva to share the wife of eldest bother ? Is this the greatness of matha Kunti to share daughter-in-law to all sons ? Is it chastity of Draupadi to be wife with several people ? Is it righteous of Draupadi to support these immoral things ?”

About Nadi Palm Leaves (Nadi Astrology)
There were only little space and no facilities in the potters house. But according to the present condition of today, that itself is a blessing. Matha Kunti was meditating on Lord Sree Krishna even while she was preparing food.
When sons reaches home cooking should be finished. Long journey has made Kunti weary. She was tired and nobody was there to help.
While she was preparing food, she immersed in the fond affection of her sons.
Bhima would be famished by now. Yudhishtra could not withstand the pangs of hunger even a short while. Arjuna will not tell anything. Similarly Nakula and Sahadeva will not be contemptuous and make trouble, they will help in all doings !
Five sons ! But fate …? Thoughts was patting Kunti continuosly.
Did she hear the footsteps of her sons outside ? Kunti tried to overhear it minutely. Yes!They are coming !
Kunti consoled to herself.
Kunti has travelled a lot and so her body was in deep pain ! She couldn’t even get up but she ignored all her inconvenience and got immersed in cooking.
In the meanwhile, unexpectedly.
Mother ! Todays special alms !! Yudhishtra outbursted with joy from the verandah to Kunti, who was inside the potters house.
Whatever may be, share it equally among yourselves !!
The reply of Kunti was all of a sudden of not enquiring or examining and these made mysterious movement in Yudhishtra.
When she heard the voice of her sons, she came to the verandah but after seeing Draupadi, she became exhausted !!
She has mistakenly said in considering about the usual alms ….she then shocked to realize the gravity of her thoughtless words.
Oh ! Couldn’t !! Kunti became weary.
Who is she ?
Kunti observed Draupadi in doubt and then courageously enquired about her.
Kunti was in a dilemma but she became attentive in not showing it outside.
This is the appropriate reward for Arjuna’s valour !!
The reply of Yudhishtra according to the circumstances was always been a special !
Isn’t that Yudhishtra was always been so ?.What he intended will not be revealed and it will be with humble, timely, ambiably and presenting so are the special skills of Yudhishtra.
Yudhishtra, then informed the matter to Kunti in a detailed manner which led to the marriage of Arjuna and Draupadi.
After hearing everything, Kunti behaved in a matured way and called Draupadi inside. Then welcomed her with ritual formalities. After that Kunti came back towards her sons.
Sit down children. …
Kunti said with affection.
What can be done now ?… My words should also be made effective but should not happen nothing against righteousness and culture.
Kunti was repenting because of the word which has slipped out mistakenly.
We will do as our mother says …. In the mean while, Arjuna informed his decision inorder not to make his mother into panic.
Is this an object to be shared and she is the wife know ?
The question of Kunti made everybody in silence.
Then we will ask Vyasan ! Who knows the actual of righteousness than him ?.
Kunti became frightened by the instruction of Yudhishtra because he was like strongly decided on something.
What about Sree Krishna ?
Kunti asked instantly in anxiety.
Can be ! But Vyasan has skills in Vedas aswell !!
When Yudhishtra was starting to justify, Kunti became silent. If it is continued then it may lead to quarrel.
Is Yudhishtra using my word as a weapon which I was told mistakenly and is he playing a trick on it ? Kunti became sad.
Isn’t that, when we obey the words of mother then only the sons righteousness will be fulfilled know ? In the meanwhile, the question of Yudhishtra has again made the matter lively.
If so then, whatever may be share it among yourselves of mothers words, isn’t that we are liable to obey it ?
The question of Yudhishtra with a particular intention made Kunti deeply apprehensive.
Even brother has knowledge in righteousness know ? Bhima has left it to Yudhishtran.
Yes ! Let me analyse. The reply of Yudhishtra has put an end to the matter temporily.
Everbody stood up.
Now let us take food. Kunti invited everybody. While she was entering inside, she suddenly stopped !
Draupadi was standing behind the door !!!
As beautiful as Sree Krishna with dual color !
Beautiful ! The daughter of the King Drupadan of Panchala ! She is called as Panchali and Krishna ! Ardent devotee of Sree Krishna.
She would have heard everything. Is the depressed eyes of Draupadi is telling that it shouldn’t ? Kunti became sad.
Come on ! Kunti called Draupadi inside with affection.
Everbody slept after taking supper.
Kunti was praying to Sree Krishna that nothing should not happen unrighteously of the words uttered by her. She confirmed to her that, Sree Krishna will do everything as per His own decisions.
As Kunti was tired, she slipped into sleep and then suddenly awoke up. Is the sound of galloping horses is heard at a distant ? She overheard it.
Whether the enemies have identified ? Had Drupadan grew suspicious ? Had the archery skills of Arjuna exposed him off to the enemies ?
Did Dushasanna hear the news ? For the righteous Duryodhana, his brother Dushasanna is really a disgrace !! Hence, did he play anything crookedly ? Isn’t that his aim is always to grab the power from Duryodhana ? Normally nobody cannot understand his intention !!
When the thoughts are churning up, at a distance the galloping sounds of the horse became louder. Is the sound of the chariots is also hearing ? Kunti quivered with fear and became attentive , she overheard it.
Who could be in the chariot ? Will it be Sree Krishna or other enemies ? Kunti came out from her thoughts, lit a wick in the earthern lamp and then noticed her sons.
The room was very small so everybody was sleeping together.
The tiredness of the journey has made Draupadi exhausted.
The tiredness of the journey has made Draupadi exhausted. It is not usual, innocent girl ! Her fate is to be in this hell. Kunti became sad.
Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva were all sleeping together but Yudhishtra was sleeping separately. Everybody specially respected Yudhushtra always.
Kunti sighed heavily after looking at her exhausted children.
Should I call them ?
While she was hesitating, chariot has reached the home.
Kunti then called everybody.
Everybody, including Draupadi awoke up. Kunti informed everything in a tender voice. In no time everybody became armed themselves.
The galloping sound of the horse was heard louder and louder.
Arjuna became alert, Bhima was armed with club and became ready for anything. Yudhishtra, Nakula and Sahadeva were ready for the battle.
Everybody became ready quickly because of the experiences of the last many days. If there happened a problem here then the innocent man who gave us shelter even temporally, will he behave the same way as in other places ? The experience is like that !
Now Draupadi is also with us.Though five children are strong but there is no place for shelter. These all happened with the consent know ?
When Kunti peeped out to the thoughts of reality then it got shattered due to the strong footsteps from outside.
Hey Pandavas ! Open the door. We are not enemies but friends ! They informed by hitting the door.
Kunti noticed that there is a difference in the footsteps and it indicates the increase in numbers of body guards.
In the mean time Yudhishtra opened the door courageously.
What a surprise !
King of Panchala, Drupada has come with his people !!!
Yudhishtra quickly greeted the King and his people, asked to sit. The greeting for the guests was grant within the facilities !
The presence of Draupadi has stormed sadness in Drupada.
She has lived with aristocratic facilities but one day she became a comman woman ! What a fate !!! Any way she has got the man whom she was longing.
Everything can be made alright ! Let us console like that. Eyes of Drupadan was filled with tears.
I had the doubt in the beginning itself that they are Pandavas. Drupada started the conversation after he was entertained as guest.
When it was enquired to Sree Krishna then the doubt got cleared ; Though Sree Krishna did not attend the marriage, then Drupada made a pause and looked at his affectionate daughter Krishna, so called Panchali.
In the meanwhile, did it become inconvenience when we reached here in the unfavourable time ? Humbleness and courteous of Drupada has made everybody hearty.Then …. They became haste to go ! According to the instruction of the espionagers they started the journey.
Your visit is been a lucky was us !! Circumstantial reply of Yudhishtra has striked them.
Draupadi was born after a very longing and so we did not depart from Draupadi. The separation of my daughter has made deep pain, not only that as a position of a father there were many mistakes in performing the duties towards the daughter. When the instructions of Lord Sree Krishna was heard, then only we are knowing the fact. So we quickly reached here.
As he was clearifying the intention of his visit, does the words of Drupada created uncomfortness in Yudhishtra ? Kunti noticed it.
Your presence has made even this hut great !! The humble reply of Yudhishtra has made the King Drupada satisfied.
In the meanwhile the sounds of the chariot has awakened the citizens. But by the instructions of the King, the bodyguards has done a good job by senting citizens to their own house.
Again the conversation with Drupada has begun.
I myself have marched here to invite everybody to my palace, instead of the messenger because the worthy people has to be invited accordingly know ?
The words of Drupada has caused doubt in Yudhishtra.
Sree Krishnan is waiting for everybody there in palace ! Drupada has glanced at everybody.
As the enemies has recognized …. The security is the most essential know ? Drupada has informed the seriousness of the matter with anxiety.
Kunti doubted that Yudhishtra will stand against it.
Right ! Everything is as per your wish !!! Yudhishtra quickly obeyed it. The prayers of Kunti to Krishna has brought result.
Everybody quickly started the journey to the palace of King Drupada.
Nobody spoke during the travel. Kunti was noticing it specially. Kunti whole heartedly prayed to omniscient Sri Parameshwaran and Sri Mahavishnu. As Kunti has the divine blessing of Krishna, everything will happen righteously and in a good manner. She is the beloved devotee of Sree Krishna. She then immersed in the Krishna devotion.
Whatever may be, as Sree Krishna is there, then there is nothing to worry in the case of Draupadi. Kunti got consoled. What is more shame than to be wife for five brothers?.
Oh ! I cannot even imagine ! What will be the state of Draupadi if she has happened to be the wife for five brothers ? Those who have dignity will not get ready for it. Does the daughter of King Drupadha has lack for dignity ?
Though such heinous matter has happened, Draupadi was obstinate,unfrightned, independent and she was behaving in a matured manner.She might be longing Arjuna that much otherwise why did the daughter of Drupada invite by garlanding Arjuna itself who was just dwelling ?.This might be the wish of Sree Krishna. Kunti immersed in deep thought.
The chariot has reached the palace. The King has already made arrangements for the guests to take rest. Kunti and Draupadi took rest along with Pandavas. The palace where she was grewn up ! Gesture of Draupadi was like as if she has forgotten it.
Kunti was surprised to see the changes in Draupadi within a day. How did she get this maturity ? Kunti liked Draupadi so much.
Drupada has entertained Pandavas in the sabha with hospitality and as per rituals. Sree Krishna was adorning the most respected position, Kunti consoled.
I have made this opportunity ! The sweet sound of Krishna has flown there. Kunti particularly noticed it.
Heh Yudhishtra ! If you want to sustain in righteousness then you can get relieved from todays problems and so this is the opportunity. Krishna started.
But Yudhishtra did not respond to it.
Arjuna is not just Arjuna now !
He is the husband of Draupadi and son-in-law of King Drupada !!! So definitely that glory has to be sustained. The words of Sree Krishna was with profound gesture and so everybody became attentive.
It was not yet decided that who and all should be the wife of Draupadi ?
Yudhishtra has declined the words of Sree Krishna and suddenly started justifying. Everybody became astonished except Sree Krishna !!!
Kunti was shocked !
Is there anything special to say such a blunder ? Though the question of Krishna was normal but it sounds ridiculous and this made Yudhishtra in wrath.
We obey the words of our mother. Though the atmosphere was silent but the words of Yudhishtra made everybody unbearable. Kunti recognized that the situation is getting deviated against the peaceful atmosphere and so she involved in the situation suddenly.
Listen Krishna ! While I was preparing food they came here with Draupadi. When Yudhishtra has informed from the verandah that they have bought a special alms then, actually without enquiring it I told them that whatever may be, you all share it equally among yourselves. For that Yudhishtra is telling all these !! The words of Kunti was timely to the circumstances.
The eyes of Draupadi has blossomed and expanded with relaxation. Drupadha,his wife and everybody became apprehended.
Only this much ? The answer of Krishna made Yudhishtra perturbed.
Does the words of mother have no value ? Does it not that be obeyed ? The words of Yudhishtra has become sharpened.
Heh Yudhishtra ! Matha Kunti has revealed a little while before that she has considered it as ordinary alms from her pre-conceived notion and without enquiring the fact. Not only that, the thing which was not known or the matter which is not enquired, examined, not evident, which is told in a general way can only be considered as opinion and not the decision.
Sree Krishna has started to examine the matter in a detailed manner.
Is this an object to be shared, she is the wife of Arjuna now ? Sree Krishna has stated arrowing the question.
Is it the culture to share one’s own wife to others ? Is it the morality to share one’s own wife with brothers ? In the justification of mothers word, is it the righteous argument of Yudhishtra to partake in such a heinous act ? Does sharing his own wife to others is the bravery of Arjuna ? Is it the importance of Yudhishtra and Bhima to make their brother wife their own ? Is it the path of virtue of Nakula and Sahadeva to share the wife of eldest bother ? Is this the greatness of matha Kunti to share daughter-in-law to all sons ? Is it chastity of Draupadi to be wife with several people ? Is it righteous of Draupadi to support these immoral things ?.
These cannot be accepted in the comman life and so I, the eigth incarnation cannot be a part to these immoral act. Everybody lowered their head as they don’t have any answer to Sree Krishna.
Draupadi got consoled. From the childhood days of Draupadi, Krishna used to tell about Arjuna to Draupadi. She liked Arjuna from thereon. Whatever may be, she got Arjuna itself as her husband! Drupada whole heartedly paid obeisance to Sree Krishna.
Kunti also got consoled. Draupadi is called as Panchali because she is known by the name Krishna and she is the daughter of the King Panchala. She has become self-gratified with the ardent devotion of the eighth incarnation Sree Krishna.
Though Arjuna was little bit embrassed but he became proud to hear the divine words of Sree Krishna
All the matters of the eighth incarnation of Sree Krishna will be emphasized on morality, practicality and it will be accomplished righteously. Sree Krishna will not support anything which is unrighteous. Sree Krishna is the eighth incarnation of Lord Mahavishnu. Since this matter has reached before Sree Krishna and so this disgraceful matter will end up here. Definitely, Kunti thought about it.
In the meanwhile Sree Krishna continued.
The position of mother is unique with her divine love. A women itself is upholding different positions as mother towards children, wife to husband, sister towards brothers.In that mother is the most noble.
For a mother children are all alike so the words of Kunti, whatever may be, share it among youselves, should only be considered as just fulfilling the responsibility of the position of a mother.
According to the righteousness and deservingness, each one of them can share it. This is the rule of the country in the state administration otherwise anarchic, unrighteous and evil custom will be staged. As a result, insecurity will subdue that nation.
Any matter should be implemented in a righteous way. Then only the blessings of Lord Parameshwaren Shivan and Lord Mahavishnu can be received.
Draupadi should only be the wife of Arjuna, younger brothers wife for Yudhishtra and Bhima, eldest brothers wife for Nakulan and Sahadevan, according to the righteous of the position and family relation can be shared equally in a practical and logical way. The judgement of Sree Krishna was based on justice and it adorns the caste-mark which pertains to the culture of sages of Bharatha.
Mother gives food to her children equally but the quantity intake of food is varied according to the age and physical structure and so mother will be satisfied only when she abate hungry of her children by giving necessary food to children. Moreover it is not necessary even in children that youngest brother shall take food like the eldest brother. When the quantity intake of food of the eldest brother is more than the youngest brother then, is it righteous to force the younger brother to take food as the eldest brother ? If the quantity intake of food of younger brother is less when compared to the eldest brother then, can we compel the eldest brother to take the same quantity of food as the youngest brother ?As a result eldest brother will also suffer hunger know ? The divine words of Sree Krishna has made Kunti consoled.
Draupadi was also seen cheered up. The divine words of Sree Krishna made Draupadi consoled.
Mother gives to all children equally. If it is equal then the quantity to small child and big child is of the same quantity. But it will make more difficult because when it is of the same quantity then, for the small child, the quantity will be more but for the big child it may not be sufficient. Mother will only give food to children by taking into account of their age, body state or health conditions, positions, diseases etc. When food is equally divided ,it will not be balanced and so it is unrighteous. Dharma means equilibrium . Food should be given equally to each children according to their age, positions and health conditions.
The duty of mother is the wellbeing of their children. So mother is giving the sufficient food to her children equally in considering the body structure, age and position. Then only the duty of mother will be fulfilled. Similarly matha Kunti has just told to take it equally and so everybody can take equally as per their positions and relations.
If the Pandavas of the royal dynasty has himself done against the culture then what will be the state of citizens ? Sree Krishna paused a while then noticed every body, especially Draupadi.
As a woman, Draupadi was not at all so obstinate like Yudhishtra to accept as wife for five brothers and to welcome Arjuna as husband. Treacherous ! There is no authority even for the ruler to object a woman from living according to the culture and so injustice in the Kings family cannot be made effective and it cannot be agreed at any cost and in any names.
Sree Krishna continued.
Righteousness based on true intention, alertness, understanding, observation, analysis and wisdom is most essential for taking any decision in any matter then only those can be implemented logically and practically as per the culture and righteousness.
Therefore before accepting any persons words, it should be examined keenly, whether it is suitable as per righteous, can it be accepted as per position, whether it is logical and practical and it should be examined minutely. Then only it can be decided whether to accept it or to neglect it.
Here what was the object was not even enquired and if actually, the words of matha Kunti was examined by the eldest brother Yudhishtra and upholded righteousness and culture then this matter which was totally disgrace would have solved in no time. Not only that, for this silly matter there would not been that importance and this not agreeable to the society know? Sree Krishna continued about the description of how should be the righteousness.
All above that, Drupada has counted that skills in martial art is the eligibility for the marriage which is his understandings and it is against righteousness. Actually, the eligibilities required for a fiancé in state administration is that, he should have definite outlook towards life, righteousness, practical insight, honesty, readiness for hard working, zeal for effortness, effortness in earning money in a righteous ways, alertness in implementing duties, alertness in doing responsibilities for parents, brothers, sisters and friends. By recognizing superstitious beliefs, unrituals and not getting involved in that, he shall sustain in devotion, his life style should be based on culture, he should maintain strong righteous social relations, according to the oppurtunities and circumstances, he should skillfully achieve the needs of life according to the changes in accordance with the time. Active movements with accurate performance, punctuality in work, tolerance, study of science and devotion towards God should be the eligibilities.
It is necessary to have a keen observance on the above mentioned abilities. Marriage is not a competition. As it was conducted here, when the fiancé has selected the groom, as a result it is insulting everybody who has attended the marriage. Marriage is the matter of one’s own personal likings and wishes. It should not be staged in public. Privacy should be there for choosing the life partner. It is the stage where only necessary people and that too who is responsible in the family and friends shall be present and it is the personal ceremony.
When several people are lined up in one stage and at the same time, when fiancé is selecting a particular person whom she liked in keeping witness of the court then definitely it is insulting by inviting everybody and this cannot be allowed. Not only that while insulting only enemity will be there. It will be the reason for all the friendly nations to become enemy and insulted.
Long back ago, I have made clear it to the King Drupada but he did not take this matter seriously. That and all is the decision of their own.On revealing how should be the righteous , at the same time I will not support which is injustice and this is my faith in righteousness. If it is necessary then it can be obeyed otherwise you can neglect it. For everything there will be result of its own.
I did not attend the marriage but I know what will happen. That is the reason, why I have directly came over to the palace of Drupada palace for making know the judgement regarding this matter which is against the righteousness. There should not be any bad tune in the history of my incarnation. I will not support Yudhishtra who has mistake in understanding. So in this matter, how actually should be the righteousness has been cleared and to the gesture of Sree Krishna a profound caste-mark has adorned. Sree Krishna continued.
All the above, in the present state there is no place for Pandavas to fulfill their basic needs and they are wandering so first there should be a solution for that. Always there should be righteousness towards problem then only creativeness will be formed.
What did Dasharadha do when Queen Kaikeyee claimed to sent Sree Rama, seventh incarnation to exile forest for the reason of Dasharadha giving boons ? Dasharadha has enquired Sree Rama and then gathered the rajasabha, presented the questions in a indirect way as questioning to Sree Rama in front of the citizens and chief among the ministers. Sree Rama has then implemented the verdict lawfully. When Dasharadhan has recognized as the culprit then he himself has withdrawn from the authority of the King, blessed Sree Rama was coronated as the King. Rama examined the situation from where the boon was given, whether it is righteous or not, traced the culprit and finally punishment was verdicted but Sree Rama did not get attached to relatives, the punishment was verdicted by independently and righteously cross-examing. Though Dasharadhan, Kaikeyee and Mandhara was judged the culprit, but crime couldn’t be implemented on the basis of evil intentions, they were found guilty in front of the citizens, the insult caused than the duration of experiencing punishment and it is serious so for one crime only one punishment should only be experienced and so on the basis of righteousness, Dasharadhan and Kaikeyee was made free from punishment. The citizen who uses the circumstances as an oppurtunity for treachory , influence others and inspire others to commit crime then definitely it is necessary to give an exemplary punishment for them and for making others to recognize this, Sree Rama has punished Mandhara.
There is no need to obey anybodys unrighteous words and no need to give boon for implementing of duties. The King who is in the position of ruler and who exploits the authority of the King for his own wishes and family and those who are doing duties with the criminal inclination should be cross-examined righteously beyond family relations and positions, as per the state administration and punishment should be verdicted. It is most legitimate and inevitable for the well being of the citizens and state administration which has made known to the world by Sree Rama in the real history of seventh incarnation is now important here in this situation when crooked steps are planned against the culture and where heinous crimes were planned to implement it and now it is helping here in this present situation of the verdict ( Read the real history of Sree Rama-Most Important scene from the first part by Kalkipuri Publications)
The divine words of Sree Krishna has made Kunti surprised! Kunti prostrated with devotion. Though Yudhishtra was silent but revenge was taking form in him but he was unable to counter question.
Matha Kunti, Draupadi and including Pandavas can decide righteously on their security and necessary things for the success in their life. The great presence of Sree Krishna should be there! The words of Drupada was apt for the circumstance
Yes ! Everything can be decided in accordance with state administration and in a righteous way. Draupadi is only the wife of Arjuna. Draupadi is younger brothers wife for Yudhishtra and Bhima, Draupadi is eldest brothers wife for Nakula and Sahadevan.Sustain the culture of Bharatha with greatness thus glistening the culture by considering equally, righteoslly and lawfully in accordance with family relations.
Draupadi should only mingle with everybody according to their positions because normally brothers will ever have such ambition. It did not happen as reality but here it has come in the form of desire. So Draupadi has to mingle carefully as per their positions. Otherwise it will built the base for suspicious , criticism and will effect the life itself. Noblest wisdom is to allow the welfare rule and the wellbeing of the citizens by the state administration through the blessing of God.
Though the divine words of Sree Krishna has caused inconvenience in Pandavas, including Yudhishtra but they were forced to accept it. Kunti salutated on the lotus feet of Sree Krishna for the blessing and making opportunity for Draupadi to live with dignity as the wife of Arjuna only. For making opportunity and blessing Draupadi to live with dignity as the wife of only Arjuna, Kunti prostrated on the lotus feet of Sree Krishna !!!
