Jai ShreeKrushna!


Class 2: The essence of teamwork: the order in which the conches were blown (chapter 1 verses 4 to 21) 

This class covers:

  • The respect for and higher position given to women in Indian Sanskrit culture, as seen by how the Mahabharata warriors were referred to.
  • The difference between infancy, youth and old age: the worrisome nature of Duryodhana and the reassurance by Bhisma, advanced in knowledge, advanced in experience and advanced in enthusiasm.
  • The signs of a great Poet, Vyasji, who could talk about the present and imply the future with the same beautiful words.
  • The deeper meaning behind the full order in which the conches were blown on both sides: the Pandavas and the Kauravas, and the great story behind Shree Krushna's conch (Pāncajanya) .
  • Arjuna's flag of Kapidhvajah (the signs of movement and flickering) and Shree Krushna's name of Acyuta (one who is firm).
