11 Lessons from Mahabharat Abhimanyu | अभिमन्यु और महाभारत की सीख

mahabharat abhimanyu

Mahabharat Abhimanyu story: The Abhimanyu Story of getting caught in the chakravyuha during Mahabharata war is very famous and popular. Abhimanyu was the son of Arjuna and Lord Krishna’s sister Subhadra. When he heard the news of the war, he too came to Kurukshetra to help his father and uncles. One day during the war, Dronacharya, the commander of the Kauravas, created the Chakravyuha. Apart from Shri Krishna, only Arjuna knew the art of penetrating Chakravyuha. Arjuna not only knew the entry into the vyuha, but he also knew the trick to destroy it and get out from there. But Abhimanyu only knew the method of entering into the vyuha, which he had heard from his father while he was in the womb of his mother. It was mandatory to break the vyuha and Arjuna was at the other end of the battle ground.  

Therefore Abhimanyu was sent to break the vyuha. Yudhishthira’s plan was that as soon as Abhimanyu breaks the first gate of the vyuha. All the remaining Pandavas would enter into the vyuha to assist him, but due to Jayadratha the remaining four Pandavas could not enter into the vyuha. As a result, Abhimanyu got stuck in the chakravyuha while he was disarmed and killed by the Kaurava warriors. Jayadratha had a boon that he would be heavy on the remaining four brothers except Arjuna one day in the battlefield, so the Pandavas could not enter Chakravyuh to help Abhimanyu and Abhimanyu got trapped in the Chakravyuh.

A great example of valor, intelligence and courage is the heroic Abhimanyu Story of the Mahabharata Era.

It is said that incomplete knowledge is the most dangerous. An example of this is Abhimanyu ki kahani.

You should be proficient in your knowledge. There must be proficiency in any one subject for sure.

Do you know why Shri Krishna did not stop Abhimanyu’s death? The reason behind this is that Arjuna was reluctant to cut off the war with the Kauravas because they were all his brothers, although the war was going on, but Arjun’s heart was distracted in fighting against his own people. In such a situation, the death of Abhimanyu reversed this entire war. While distraught over the death of his son, Arjuna forgets all the other things and comes to war with perseverance. It is said that this was Shri Krishna’s war policy.

  • Always Respect your Parents and Elders

During Mahabharata, Abhimanyu took the wheel of his chariot for his protection and took a sword with his right hand. He killed warriors of the Kauravas in an injured state too. After this, Abhimanyu’s sword was also broken by the Kauravas and shattered the wheel of the chariot in his hand. Now Abhimanyu was completely unarmed but still he did not give up and he continued to confront the Kauravas. This teaches us that even in tough situations of life, we should never lose our strength.
