Mahabharata – Parthasarathi£ 155.00 – £ 755.00 BUY
This is the very heart of Mahabharata, this is the moment that decides how the game will be played. This is the very moment upon which the entire Mahabharata has been written.
The majestic chariot enters the battlefield of Kurukshetra, where the armies are lined up, ready to clash. In these circumstances, Krishna reveals to his friend and devotee Arjuna the secret of Vedic knowledge. The fundamentals of wisdom are conveyed, as he speaks of truth and deception, illusion and reality, virtue, passion and ignorance. The deeper aspects of the psyche, the transcendental nature of the self, the relationship with the Godhead and with other living beings, all come to light very clearly in this dialogue whispered in front of the two armies, and recorded in the Bhagavad Gita (the song of God), one of the primary texts of mankind’s spiritual history.
Mahabharata – The Choice£ 160.00 – £ 790.00 BUY
It is the eve of the great battle of Kurukshetra, when the whole Mahabharata epic is about to be resolved. Sitting on His bed, Krishna announces that He is not going to side with either opponent. He leaves them the choice as to whether to incorporate his powerful personal army into their ranks, or to have Him alone, unarmed and in a secondary role.
Duryodhana, chief of the Kurus, has no hesitation in picking Krishna’s army, where as the Panadavas only desire was to have their dear friend Govinda, Krishna on their side. They are fully convinced that His mere presence on their side will ensure them final victory.
So it is, that Krishna accepts the humble role of driver of Arjuna’s chariot, and thus comes to be known as Parthasarathi.
