- In the Mahabharata, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula-Sahadeva had not given answers to Yaksha’s questions and had become like the deceased, Yaksha had asked Yudhishthira what was the biggest surprise?
story- The Pandavas were in exile in the Mahabharata. Tired of wandering around one day, he stayed in a place to rest. When everyone was feeling thirsty, Yudhishthira sent the four brothers one by one to arrange water. But, when the four brothers did not return, Yudhishthira set out to find his brothers.
After walking some distance, he saw a lake. On the banks of the lake, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva were lying in a state of death. When Yudhishthira moved towards the lake, a Yaksha appeared there. Yaksha said, ‘If you want to drink the water of my lake, then my questions have to be answered first. Your brothers did not listen to me and drank water without answering questions, so they have become such a condition. If you answer my questions, then all four of your brothers will be alive again and you can also drink water. ‘
Yaksha had asked many difficult questions. Yudhishthira gave everyone’s answers very well with patience. Then the Yaksha asked the final question, ‘What is wonder in the world?’
Yudhishthira replied, ‘Everyday people die, all see many people dying around them. Yet people do not understand death, but want to avoid it. Everybody has to die one day. I find the most surprising incident is that even after seeing everyone dying, a person cannot understand that if one has to die one day, do not panic.
The Yaksha became satisfied with Yudhishthira’s answers and brought the four Pandavas alive.
Learning We should also understand that live life, but do not be afraid of death. Understand this, one day everyone has to die. This is the absolute truth.
