I like to share some of my realization of Lord Krishna


In Mausala Parva

We speculates that Krishna was cause of the battle of Mahabharata, as he could have prevented this war but did not, as Krishna does not intervene in the actions of men. The chapter concludes by showing how the Pandavas lose interest in earthly matters after hearing about the destruction of the Yadavas and the death of Krishna. They crown Parikshit and leave for a pilgrimage to various places in India before moving towards heaven.


In Mahaprasthanika Parva

The final ascent of Pandavas to Heaven

On their way, a dog accompanies the Pandavas. The Dog follows the Pandavas throughout their journey. As the brothers walk, Draupadi is the first person to die. Bheema asks Yudistra the reason behind the death of Draupadi. Yudistra replies that although all the five brothers loved her equally, yet, she showed more inclination towards Arjuna. It was because of this partiality towards Arjuna, she died midway. The remaining Pandavas continue their journey leaving Draupadi behind. Now, Sahadeva is the next person to fall. Bheema again asks Yudistra the reason for the death of Sahadeva. Yudistra replies that Sahadeva was very proud that none was equal to him in wisdom. It was for this reason he died midway. The others continue to move leaving Sahadeva behind. Now, Nakula is the next person to die. Over this, Yudistra replies to Bheema that Nakula thought that he was the most handsome person in the world. It was because of this pride in him that he too had to die in the middle before they could reach heaven. Yudistra instructs Arjuna and Bheema not to look back and to continue their journey. As they travel further, now Arjuna is the next person to die on their way. Bheema again gets very astonished. He asks Yudistra the reason behind Arjuna's inability to reach heaven in human form. Yudistra replies that Arjuna boasted and took a vow before the beginning of the Kurukshetra war that he would destroy the entire Kauravas in a single day. Being so proud of his archery skills took the vow but he could not do fulfill it and the war took place for eighteen days. So, Arjuna was deprived of reaching heaven on being so proud over his archery skills. Now, they leave Arjuna too behind. Yudistra, Bheema and the Dog proceed further. However, now it was the turn of Bheema to fall down. He asks his elder brother to narrate him the reason behind his own inability to reach heaven. Yudistra replies that Bheema used to eat too much without even thinking about the hunger of others. It was due to this sin that he was now ordained to die. Finally, Yudistra along with the dog continue their journey and reach Heaven with their mortal bodies..



Here my realization of God( Lord Krishna) is that for that one person Yudistra who was all the time intact with Dharma went to Heavan without any itch.

Even thou many men died, one person with Dharma went straight to Heaven and Lord Krishna sided with Pandavas and helped Yudistra in the victory of Dharma to the Heaven.


so Krishna could have stopped the war but the dharma should win and Yudistra should win and win to Heaven.
