Krishna and Yuddhava The question which lies on our mind after reading Mahabharata!…
Krishna and Yuddhava Gita. In this blog, I will be talking about a video that I watch recently on YouTube. The title of this video is “Why Krishna did not help Pandav and Draupadi against Duryodhan before Disrobing”
The seen video depicts communication between Lord Krishna and Yuddhava. He was the cousin of Krishna. He had been with Krishna from his childhood, charioting and serving him in many ways. He never asks for any wish or boons from Krishna. When Krishna was on verge of completing his avatar.
Krishna asks him to ask for any wish or boon from me, he was the only person who didn’t ask for a boon from Krishna. In this avatar of Krishna, many people ask for boons and wishes from him. So Krishna can complete his avatar with the satisfaction of doing good yuddhava also.
Lord Krishna and Yuddhava speech start Part 1
He never ask for boons and wish for himself but he had been observing Krishna from his (yuddhava) childhood. He had always wonder about readily seen disconnection between Krishna teachings and his actions and he want answer from same.
He ask to Krishna that you have taught us to live in one but you lived in different way. In the drama of Mahabharat the role which you played. But he didn’t undertand many thing and he was curious to know reason for lord Krishna actions. He want to fullfill his desire to know. Lord said what I told to Arjuna during the kurukshetra war was Bhagavad Gita and what Krishna reponse to Yuddhava known as he Gita. Krishna said that’s why he gave opportunities to him to ask without any hesitation.
He started asking to Krishna his first question. “ First tell me who is real friend”. Krishna says that real friend is one who comes to help his friends in need without being called. Yuddhava said Krishna , you are dear friend of pandavas and they trust you fully as Apadhabhandava.
Yuddhava said that Lord Krishna not only you know what happening now but also What going to happen. Just now you give definition of true and closed friend. Why did you not stop dhamaraj (Yudhishtra) from playing game of Gambling? Why did you not turn the luck in favour of Dharmaraj, by which you would have ensure dharma wins why did you not do that?
You could saved dharmaraj by stopping the game after lost his wealth ,country and himself . You could have realised him from the punishment for gambling. You could entry the hall when he starting betting his brother. How could you call Apadhabhandava when you help a person during crsis. You only intervened only when draupadi almost lost her modesy and now you claim that you give her clothes. How you can claim after she has been dragged in to the hall by a man and disrobed in front of so many people , What modesty is left for a woman? What have you saved.
Krishna replied that only law of the world is who was viveka ( intelligent and determination wins)
When dharmaraj didn’t not had viveka. While duryodhana not know to play the game but he used his uncle shakuni instead of him that is viveka. Even that Dharmaraj did another blunder. He prayed that Krishna should not come to hall.
Even draupadi did not call me when dushasan held her hair and dragged her to fullfill his brother order and even she was arguing in the hall base on her ability.Happening all this I was awaiting outside the hall for chance to help. Even Dharamaraj was had fate in his abilities.
Even when bhima, Arjuna, nakula and sahadeva were, they were only cursing duryodhana and brooding over their fate as they forget to call me. Finally good sense prevailed; when Dushasan started disrobing her she shouted Hari Hari Abhayam Krishna Abhayam and shouted for me, only then I had an opportunities to help her.
Yuddhava ask you come only when call . Krishna replied that In this life everyone proceeds with their own karma. He did not interfere it He don’t run it . He only witness it and stand near by and observing what happiness this only dharma of god. Yuddhava said lets evil and sins grows. Krishna said people cannot do any good or bad without my knowledge. If they thinks , they can do things without my knowledge then only they enters into trouble.
I think that readers long everlasting doubt and question in minds after reading Mahabharata had finaly solved. So readers understand one things we cannot do bad or good without withness of God.
God is standing in your side and seeing you what you do. So you must pray to god before starting doing anything. God always gives you opportinues which you should understand and use it correctly
For your reference I will upload video in my video section .

Whenever, O Bharat, righteousness (dharma) declines
and unrighteousness is rampant,
I manifest myself.
I manifest myself from age to age to defend the pious,
destroy the wicked, and strengthen dharma
