Just before going to “Did Pandavas went to Hell (Naraka) or Heaven (Svarga) after death? | Why Kauravas went to Heaven and Pandavas to Hell“, let us have some brief information.

It was the end time for all the Yadavas on this earth. All Yadavas fought with each other and got killed.

Lord Sri Krishna, after this phase of his life on earth went to aranyam (forest) for peace.

(Please remember this is only a vidambana / divine drama / pastime done by Lord Sri Krishna.)

(Lord Sri Krishna is known as “ananda“, means, he himself is the root cause of ananda / divine happiness.)

(Because of Lord Sri Krishna we are happy on this earth. Because he wishes us to be happy and thus we are happy. And if he doesn’t wishes us to be happy, we can’t be happy).

(The biggest example is of the Pandavas. Pandavas, never were having lots of wealth. But still they were happy and satisfied throughout their lives.)

(Whereas, Duryodhana had wealth, money, gold, ornaments etc. etc. etc., but Duryodhana and his group were never ever happy in their lives.)

(Lord Sri Krishna wished Pandavas to be happy, as Pandavas were in the path of Dharma.)

(Whereas, for Duryodhana and his group, Lord Sri Krishna never wished like that and thus Duryodhana and his group were never happy in their lives.)

(Also, remember that Lord Sri Krishna is having ‘aprakrita shareera’ means, Lord Sri Krishna is having a body which is not given by somebody else.)

(Lord Sri Krishna is not not born and there is no end to him. He is called as ‘aadi deva‘, means he is present since ‘Grand Unknown Age’.)

(Also, he is called as ‘ananta‘, means he will be present until the ‘Grand Infinite Age’.)

Let us continue with our main story now:

Lord Sri Krishna sat alone in the aranyam / forest.

A hunter by name Jara (Jara is the avatar of Maharishi Bhrigu) mistakenly thought the toe of the Lord Sri Krishna as the deer’s and shot an arrow at the Lord Sri Krishna.

It got struck at the middle of the toe of the Lord Sri Krishna.

Later Lord Sri Krishna called the hunter Jara and told him that he was Maharishi Bhrigu (some people say he is Vaali, but it is incorrect) in his previous life.

After the physical body of the Lord Sri Krishna left this earth all the ‘Pancha Pandavas’ along with Sri Draupadi Devi lost there interest in this material life and started moving towards the Himalayas

(Pandavas went to in and around today’s Badrinath).

With them was also a Swanam (Dog). After walking long-long distance all six started to feel the exhaustion.

(Again this is also a vidambana / drama / pastime. Pancha Pandavas and Sri Draupadi Devi are not ordinary people, but are avatars of different Devatas / Demigods).

Yudhisthira – was an avatar of Lord Sri Yama Deva (Dharmaraja) (Dharmaraya).

Bhima – was the avatar of Lord Sri Vayu Deva (Also called as Lord Sri Mukhya Prana Deva).

Draupadi Devi – an the avatar of five Devis (Goddesses), that is, Goddess Sri Bharati Devi, Goddess Sri Parvati Devi, Goddess Sri Sachi Devi, Goddess Sri Shyamala Devi and Goddess Sri Usha Devi.

Arjuna – was an avatar of Lord Sri Indra Deva (Also called as Lord Sri Mahendra).

Nakula and Sahadeva – were the avatars of Ashvini Kumaras. As Ashvini Kumars, originally Nakula is called as Nasatya and Sahadeva is called as Dasra.

First Sri Draupadi Devi left her material body from this earth, then it was Sahadeva, then it was Nakula, later it was Gandivi (Arjuna) and then later it was the Vaayu Swarupa Bhima.

Thus Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) lost all his brothers and Sri Draupadi Devi.

By this time Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) had lost all his interest in life, but he did not lost Dharma.

Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) still kept on walking along with the Svanam (Dog).

Then after some time, Lord Sri Indra Deva came in front of Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) along with his ratha (chariot) and asked Dharmaraya to come inside the ratha.

Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) along with his Svanam (dog) started to move inside the ratha.

But Lord Sri Indra Deva insisted that no Swanams (dogs) are allowed inside his chariot or inside the Svarga Loka (Heaven).

But the Dharmishtha Dharmaraya / Yudhishthira told Lord Sri Indra Deva that without this Swanam (dog) he won’t come along Lord Sri Indra Deva.

Later Swanam (dog) took the shape of the Svayam Dharma itself (Lord Sri Yama Deva) and told Yudhishthira that he has not lost his Dharma even at the end of life.

Thus Yudhisthira went to Svarga Loka (Heaven) and saw Duryodhana and other Kurus their. He also saw Dushasana, Shakuni and many such kind of people.

But Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) was surprised that he was not able to see his mother Kuni Devi, his wife Sri Draupadi Devi, his beloved younger brothers Nakula & Sahadeva.

Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) very close brother Arjuna. His mighty brother Bhima were also unseen.

Also he was not able to see his Pitamaha Bhishma or his Guru Dronacharya or his elder brother Karna.

Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) was in complete shock and surprised to see only the Kaurava clan and not his closest people.

Thus Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) asked Lord Sri Indra Deva, why only Duryodhana, the adharmi (vile) and his brothers & his close friends & relatives are present and why his own people are missing.

Later, Lord Sri Indra Deva ordered one of the Devata (Demigod) and told him to show where all the Yudhisthira’s people are.

That Devata (Demigod) took Yudhisthira to a place where only blood was flowing, where only bones were spread all over the place, where only hairs were scattered all over.

It was a place where the bad smell was present. Where skulls of all types of living beings were present.

Seeing all these, in Yudhisthira’s mind thousands of questions started to flow.

Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) started to think that what type of sins his sinless wife Sri Draupadi Devi had done to be in this type of place,

what type of sins his beloved younger brothers Sahadeva and Nakula had done to be in this type of place.

What type of sins his close brother Arjuna has done, what type of sins does his mighty brother Bhima has done,

what type of sins does his pitamaha Bhishma has does and what type of sins does his all close friends, relatives, Gurus and others have done to be in place like this.

After thinking all these types of things, Yudhisthira turned on to the Devata (Demigod) and started to question him.

Then again that Devata (Demigod) changes his Prati-roopam (form) into Dharma (Lord Sri Yama Deva) and tells Yudhisthira that:

“Oh Great King, Oh Dharmishtha (follower of Dharma), Oh Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira), my Son, you have again passed on the test which was conducted by Lord Srimann Narayana (Vishnu)”.

After this, Yudhisthira starts to see full of glow around him. It started to be a blissful place, full of Devatas (Demigods) and related people of Svarga Loka (Heaven).

Yudhisthira saw the place where the Svargadhipati Lord Sri Indra Deva lives.

Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) sees all the Ashta Digpalakas (Eight guardians of direction).

Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) sees all the Saptarishis (Seven Sages) their. Yudhisthira’s face suddenly started to glow.

Dharmaraya (Yudhishthira) sees all his brothers, Sri Draupadi Devi, Bhishma, and all his beloved people including the Kaurava brothers.

Now Devarishi Narada Muni comes and explains to Yudhisthira that he has passed the test and in fact he is standing in the Swarga Loka (Heaven) itself.

Lord Sri Krishna always tests his beloved bhaktas (devotees). Bhagavan (God) tests more who like to follow the path of Dharma.

Lord Sri Krishna initially holds the hands of all the people, but he never leaves the hands of the people who follow the path of Dharma and Bhakti (devotion).

Similarly Lord Sri Krishna leaves the hands of the ADharmis (someone who doesn’t follow Dharma).

If we need Lord Sri Krishna and his blessings, we need to be in the path of Dharma and Bhakti (devotion) and nothing else.

Similarly, if we want only enjoyment without the Dharma and Bhakti (devotion) path, then Lord Sri Krishna and his blessings will be away from us.

Lord Sri Krishna’s words are absolutely correct:

‘धर्मो रक्षति, रक्षितः’ | ‘ಧರ್ಮೋ ರಕ್ಷತಿ, ರಕ್ಷಿತಃ’ | ‘dharmo rakshati, rakshitaha’ |

If we save and be in the path of Dharma, Dharma will definitely save us. Similarly, if we are not in the path of Dharma, then we will definitely have to taste the fruit of the Adharma.
