Mahabharatha is the story line of the world drama which gets repeated in 4 yugas(Satya, Threta, Dwapara and kali). This is an ongoing story and we are the players. Depending on our level of consciousness we take the role of the appropriate player. If we think from the perspective of each player whether it is Duryodhana, Karna, Bheeshma or Arjuna he is perfectly taking the right decision at the right time according to the belief and state of mind at that moment and all there actions are justifiable for them. Each person find it difficult to comprehend the thoughts and actions of people who are in a higher level of consciousness compared to them. The same fact is applicable for any person reading a book or watching a movie. The understanding of a person purely depends on this level of consciousness.
There are hundreds of versions of Mahabharata and Bhagavat Gita interpreted by many people. Some people understand it as a mere story, some believes that Krishna is a cunning King who defines right and wrong according to the situation. I have read a version of Mahabharata written from the perspective of Karna. Here the author could not comprehend the real inner meanings so the story becomes like that of a day today movie where there are all sorts of violence, cheating ,survival of the fittest and success of the crooked.
If we could comprehend the life in Krishna consiousness then we understand that every body is right and everything is perfect. We are beings with ultimate free will and all we see around are our own creations. All other beings we see around in world are reflections of different aspects of our own true nature. There is no past or future save the moment of now. The only question before us is who we are? and we keep on defining it in the eternal moment of now.
Time ,space and matter does not exist and they are illusions which are tools to experience different aspects of our soul. We should not be in illusion but should be using it as a tool by our free will to create, explore, experiment, experience, stay with it and destroy our own creations at our will.
We can never harm harm each other and we cannot act against another souls free will because we are not different. There is only one person here All That IS. What you give out is what you receive from your reflections. We are all splits of consciousness looking at each other.
God talks with Arjuna is really wonderful and is written in pure non-discriminative universal Krishna consciousness. If we keep reading it again and again we find different and higher meanings of it which is nothing but redefining of our beliefs and thoughts which is again pure evolution of our soul quenching its greatest desire to experience and explore itself in the grandest version of greatest desire the soul has about itself.
Please do read it and expand your awareness and consciousness. Blessings
