I felt that it was not a historical work, but that, under the guise of physical warfare, it described the duel that perpetually went on in the hearts of mankind, and that physical warfare was brought in merely to make the description of the internal duel more alluring. This preliminary intuition became more confirmed on a closer study of religion and the Gita. A study of the Mahabharata gave it added confirmation. I do not regard the Mahabharata as a historical work in the accepted sense. The Adiparva contains powerful evidence in support of my opinion. By ascribing to the chief actors superhuman or subhuman origins, the great Vyasa made short work the history of kings and their peoples. The persons therein described may be historical, but the author of the Mahabharata has used them merely to drive home his religious theme. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
we are a god one people but we do praying at different and different gods for self. ~ Abhimanyu Kumar
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Abhimanyu Kumar
The fear of losing can make a calm mind restless ~ Aniket S. Sharma
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Aniket S. Sharma
For us the chief point of interest is the place where the game is played. Generatly it is a simple circle, dyutamandalam, drawn on the ground. The circle as such, however, has a magic significance. It is drawn with great care, all sorts of precautions being taken against cheating. The players are not allowed to leave the ring until they have discharged their obligations. But, sometimes a special hall is provisionally erected for the game, and this hall is holy ground. The Mahabharata devotes a whole chapter to the erection of the dicing hall - sabha - where the Pandavas are to meet their prtners. Games, of chance, therefore, have their serious side. They are included in ritual. ~ Johan Huizinga
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Johan Huizinga
Within the infinite myths lies the eternal truth ~ Devdutt Pattanaik
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
The ultimate dreamer is Vishnu floating on the cosmic Milky Ocean, couched upon the coils of the abyssal serpent Ananta, the meaning of whose name is Unending. In the foreground stand the five Pandava brothers, heroes of the epic Mahabharata, with Draupadi, their wife: allegorically, she is the mind and they are the five senses. ~ Joseph Campbell
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Joseph Campbell
Were the stories we told each other true? Who knows? At the best of times, a story is a slippery thing.
Perhaps that was why it changed with each telling. Or is that the nature of all stories, the reason for their power? ~ Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Since ancient times, sacred texts from around the world foretold about a time period in human history when a mighty demi-god would appear on earth. Whether we call this figure Perseus, Krishna, or Messiah, he is epitomized in the figure of Jesus Christ - the modern equivalent of which is Superman! ~ Eli Of Kittim
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Eli Of Kittim
If I was asked what is the greatest treasure which India possesses and what is her finest heritage, I would answer unhesitatingly that it is the Samskrit language and literature and all that it contains. This is a magnificent inheritance and so long as this endures and influences the life of our people, so long will the basic genius of India continue. If our race forgot the Buddha, the Upanishads and the great epics (Ramayana and Mahabharata), India would cease to be India . ~ Jawaharlal Nehru
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Jawaharlal Nehru
May no woman give birth to one who would mutely suffer insults, who is devoid of vigour and manly prowess and one who would bring joy to the enemies.

-Mahabharata ~ Vyasa
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Vyasa
One should never do to another what one regards as injurious to oneself. This, in brief, is the law of dharma. - Mahabharata XVIII.113.8 ~ Gurcharan Das
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Gurcharan Das
Discussions do not lead to definite conclusions. The Srutis are divided in opinion. And there is not a single Rishi whose opinions can be accepted as conclusive. Truth about religious matters is hidden in caves. Therefore that is the proper path which has been followed by great men. ~ Mahabharata
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Mahabharata
The Aryans also composed two of the world's greatest (and longest) epic poems, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, which is eight times longer than the Iliad and Odyssey put together and three times longer than the Bible - all without the benefit of writing. These Vedic recitations, both sacred and secular, form the bedrock of Indian and Hindu culture. The ~ Arthur Herman
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Arthur Herman
As far as cheating goes , you have illustrious predecessors . Theseus escaped from the labyrinth thanks to Ariadne's thread , Jason stole the golden fleece with Medea's help .... The Kaurabas used subterfuge to win at dice in the Mahabharata , and the Achaeans checkmated the Trojans by moving a wooden horse . Your conscience is clear . ~ Arturo Perez Reverte
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Arturo Perez Reverte
If you wish to convince people of something, it is more useful to be entertaining than to be right. ~ Abhimanyu Jha
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Abhimanyu Jha
Dharma is easiest to spot by its absence: the Mahabharata employs the pedagogical technique of teaching about dharma via its opposite, adharma ~ Gurcharan Das
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Gurcharan Das
national television broadcast a fifty-two-episode serialization of the Mahabharata, the script was written by a Muslim poet, Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza. ~ Shashi Tharoor
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Shashi Tharoor
And, having killed him (Abhimanyu), your people danced round his dead body like savage hunters exulting over their prey. All good men in the army were grieved and tears rolled from their eyes. Even the birds of prey, that circled overhead making noises seemed to cry 'Not thus! Not thus! ~ C.Rajagopalachari
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by C.Rajagopalachari
What's in a view? A world, by any other, would remain just as it is, just as wonderful :-) ~ Abhimanyu Jha
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Abhimanyu Jha

Mahabharata (3.281.34) 34. adrohah sarva-bhuteshu karmana manasa gira anugrahas cha danam cha satam dharmah sanatanah Never displaying malice towards any living being through actions, thoughts or words, acts of kindness, and giving in charity; this is the Sanatana Dharma adhered to by righteous persons. ~ Hanuman Dass
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Hanuman Dass
This is the sum of duty. Do not unto others that which would cause you pain if done to you. ~ Mahabharata 5 1517 From The Vedic Tradition Of India Circa 3000 BC
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Mahabharata 5 1517 From The Vedic Tradition Of India Circa 3000 BC
It was Vyasa's genius to take the whole great Mahabharata epic and see it as metaphor for the perennial war between the forces of light and the forces of darkness in every human heart. ~ Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa
Every home is a temple and the wife is the deity of that temple. ~ Krishna Mahabharata
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Krishna Mahabharata
A scene of Mahabharata where the Surya Devta(Sun God)would come to bless Kunti with a baby The child watching this on TV says I have been taught that Neil Armstrong had taken several days to reach the moon.Surya Devta took only half a minute to land up in the Kunti's room; that too, he didn't even need a rocket-he had simply walked. Science and Sanskrit had always appeared contradicting subjects to me at school:-) ~ Ravinder Singh
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Ravinder Singh
Just last year, I had to read the old Indian epic, the Mahabharata. Inspired by it, I wished I had been named Draupadi. After all, she, too, had been born differently, even abnormally. She had stepped out of fire, a gift from the old gods to her father the king. There had been no Hindu gods involved in my birth, but the loose parallels gave me a delightful sense of grandeur. ~ Sangu Mandanna
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Sangu Mandanna
'The Mahabharata,' which inspired my novel 'Palace of Illusions,' also has many stories embedded within the main tale. ~ Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
They say every dog has its day, Ganapathi, but for this terrier twilight came before tea-time. ~ Shashi Tharoor
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Shashi Tharoor
As in the great ocean one piece of wood meets another, and parts from it again such is the meeting of creatures. Mahabharata ~ Vyasa
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Vyasa
Suddenly Yudhisthira saw a yaksha approaching him. The being sat in front of him and began firing questions rapidly at him.

What is bigger than the Earth? the yaksha asked.

"A mother" replied Yudhisthira.

What is taller than the sky?

"A father"

What is faster than the wind?

"The mind , of course". Yudhisthira smiled.

What grows faster than hay?


What is the greatest dharma in the world? queried the yaksha

"Compassion and conscience"

With who is friendship never-ending?

"With good people" responded Yudhisthira patiently.

What is the secret to never feeling unhappy?

"If one can control his or her mind, then that person will never feel sad"

The yaksha increase his pace now.
What is the greatest kind of wealth.


What is the greatest kind of profit?


What is the greatest kind of happiness?

"Contentment" said Yudhisthira, ever prompt with his replies.

What is man's worst enemy?


What disease will never have a cure?

"Greed is incurable"

The yaksha smiled again. A last question my friend. What is life's biggest irony?

"It is the desire to live eternally. Every day, we encounter people dying but we always think that death will never come to us. ~ Sudha Murty
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Sudha Murty
Widespread criticisms of jihad in Islam and the so-called sword verses in the Quran have unearthed for fair-minded Christians difficult questions about Christianity's own traditions of holy war and 'texts of terror.' Like Hinduism's Mahabharata epic, the Bible devotes entire books to war and rumors thereof. Unlike the Quran, however, it contains hardly any rules for how to conduct a just war. ~ Stephen R. Prothero
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Stephen R. Prothero
Golden Rule has been rediscovered many times: by the authors of Leviticus and the Mahabharata; by Hillel, Jesus, and Confucius; by the Stoic philosophers of the Roman Empire; by social contract theorists such as Hobbes, Rousseau, and Locke; and by moral philosophers such as Kant in his categorical imperative. ~ Steven Pinker
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Steven Pinker
We condemn the Inquisition in the name of Christian values. After all, we can't condemn it in the name of the Mahabharata, which is comprised of a series of alternating murders, rather like the Iliad! ~ Rene Girard
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Rene Girard
Therefore, do you perform your allotted duty;
for action is superior to inaction. Desisting from
action, you cannot even maintain your body. (Chapter-III, Shloka-8) ~ Gita Press
Abhimanyu Mahabharata quotes by Gita Press
