In the midst of Mahabharat – Saga Non-pareil, an exploration of the phenomenal epic through the eyes of a mystic, Sadhguru explains how Mahabharat need not remain just a story but could be an opportunity to experience “the depth and dimension of what it means to be a human being.”
Sadhguru: We are in the throes of Mahabharat. Over 450 participants from all over the world have come to take part in this grand epic, a story that happened over 5,000 years ago, but in many ways is as relevant today as ever. Over 100,000 verses depicting a few thousand characters from their births to their deaths – their conquerings, joys, miseries and previous lives. For these eight days, we are not covering the story as a story, but as it is relevant to us. It is an opportunity for people to live through the story, to experience the depth and dimension of what it means to be a human being.
So full of fire she had to be of fire
Of passion, pride, shame and rage
Too fiery to rise, too fiery to fall
Her beauty and passion consumed all
What a lovely snare.
Karmic burden of lives forgotten
Make him mean by things unseen
A good man who is no good
A great being only when he stops being
A fate’s child
