- Due to Shri Krishna, Hanumanji and Sheshnag, Arjuna’s chariot was hit by all the warriors.
Arjuna’s chariot was very special in the Mahabharata war. Because, Lord Krishna himself was driving that chariot. Before the war, Shri Krishna had told Arjuna to pray to Hanuman and worship him with the flag above his chariot. Arjun had accepted this and placed a flag on the chariot bearing the mark of Hanumanji.
The war chariots of Bhishma Pitamah, Dronacharya and Karna were attacked several times on Arjuna’s chariot. However, they could not harm the chariot. When the Pandavas won the battle, this chariot was burnt as soon as Arjuna and Shri Krishna descended.
Arjuna asked Sri Krishna why this chariot burned, so Sri Krishna said that this chariot was already finished by the blows of Bhishma Pitamah, Dronacharya and Karna’s divisions. Hanumanji was on this chariot, I was the charioteer myself, that is why this chariot was running only because of my resolve. Now the work of this chariot has been completed. That’s why I left this chariot and it burned.
Special features of Arjuna’s chariot
Lord Krishna was driving the chariot of Arjuna himself and Sheshnag himself held the wheels of the chariot, so that the chariot would not fall behind even with the stroke of the Divine. Shri Krishna, Hanumanji and Sheshnag were protecting Arjuna’s chariot.
When the war was over, Arjuna told Shri Krishna that first you get off the chariot, I will come after you. Then Shri Krishna had said that Arjuna first get off the chariot.
By obeying God, Arjuna got off the chariot, after which Sri Krishna also got off the chariot. Sheshnag Patal Lok walked and Hanumanji disappeared from the chariot. Shortly thereafter, the chariot caught fire. The chariot was completely burnt in a short time.
