Did Krishna or did Dharma save Draupadi's honour?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I read in Mahabharat that when Draupadi was calling out to Krishna, then Dharma, remaining hidden, covered Draupadi with clothes of various colours.

 

Then, why do people say that it was Krishna who did this?

When Sage Vyasa visits the family, he explains to Draupadi that her unique position as the wife of five brothers results from a certain incident in her previous birth. She had in that lifetime prayed to Lord Shiva to grant her a husband with five desired qualities. Lord Shiva, pleased with her devotion, tells her that it is very difficult to get a husband with all five qualities that she desired. But she sticks to her ground and asks for the same. Then Lord Shiva grants her wish saying that she would get the same in her next birth. Hence she gets married to five brothers each who represents a given quality.

Dharma is part of Krishna...

 

But I don't know from whose transalation you've got these statements...

 

 

After hearing about the Pandav's exile, Krishna goes to visit them. He advises the Pandavs to prepare for war and tells Arjun to do penance to obtain divine weapons. Arjun does penance and eventually pleases Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva bestows him with the divine Pasupata weapon and advises him to obtain other weapons in Indralok. Rishi Duruvasa visits Hastinapur. In an attempt to humiliate the Pandavs, Duryodhan requests that the sage visit tha Pandavs as well. Rishi Duruvasa promises to do so

Ganguly's translation

 

Can Any one post a photo of the actress Roopa Ganguly as Draupadi from BR Chopra's Mahabharata --

Ideally I would like a picture of her with hands folded --offering "pranams"?

 

Please, please, pretty please?

 

Roopa Ganguly was so opulently beautiful to look at--along with the personality of Draupadi's bossy 'attitude'.
