Just before going to “Arjuna information (story, facts, secrets, greatness, dharma, virtue) | What was Arjuna famous for? | What are the 10 names of Arjun? | How do you describe the character of Arjuna? | Who was Arjun’s favourite wife?“, let us know a brief, basic and very important information.

Meaning of the name Arjuna – There are multiple meanings of the word Arjuna, in that few meanings are silver, a tree name, very bright, superbly shiny, highly alert, etc.

Arjuna wives names are : Draupadi, Ulupi, Chitrangada and Subhadra. Ulupi is a Naga Kanya (Serpent woman), Chitrangada is an avatar of Sachi Devi (Indra’s wife) and Subhadra in her earlier life was Trijata (The demoness who was with Goddess Sita during Ramayana period).

Arjuna parents names are : King Pandu and Kunti Devi. Arjuna took birth with the blessings of Lord Sri Indra (The King of the Swarga Loka / Heaven). Position of Arjuna : Arjuna was highly respected and he was one of the main cause of the victory of the Mahabharata (Kurukshetra) war after Lord Krishna and Bhima.

Arjuna weapon name is : Gandiva Dhanush (Bow), Pashupatastra (An arrow), Agneyastra (Fire), Varunastra (Water), Vavayastra (Air), Parjanyastra (Cloud), etc. Arjuna siblings names are : Karna, Yudhishthira, Bhima, Nakula and Sahadeva.

Arjuna children names are : Iravan by Ulupi, Babruvahana by Chitrangada, Abhimanyu by Subhadra, Shrutakarma by Draupadi, Pragati and Pragya (twins – Both daughters) by Draupadi, Bhargavi (daughter) by Subhadra. Arjuna home is : Hastinapura (Hastinavati).

How Arjuna is related to Lord Krishna : King Shurasena and Queen Marisha’s children were Vasudeva [Lord Krishna’s father Vasudeva (वसुदेव)], Samudravijaya (son) and Pritha (Also called as Kunti) (daughter). Thus both Vasudeva (वसुदेव) and Kunti were brother and sister in relation. Consequently, Lord Krishna is a maternal cousin of Arjuna.

Different names of Arjuna are as given below with meanings of each name:

Kaunteya (कौन्तेय) : Arjuna was the son of Kunti. Here Kaunteya = Kunti + Teya = Mother + born from = Since Arjuna was born from Kunti Devi is called as Kaunteya. Kunti’s original name was Pritha. But, after the birth she was brought up by a foster father called Kuntibhoj and thus she is called as Kunti.

Pāṇḍuputra (पाण्डुपुत्र) : Arjuna was the son of King Pandu and thus this name. King Pandu had two wives, elder was Kunti and younger was Madri. Earlier King Pandu had got the curse from a Sage called Kidamba and his wife that “If King Pandu approaches his wives with the intention of making love, he will die.”

Pāṇḍava (पाण्डव) : Arjuna was the son of Pandu. Earlier all the five Pandavas and all the Dhritarashtra’s 100 sons were known as Kauravas. But, when Duryodhana started to play negative games with five Pandavas, they (Pandavas) were more than happy to be called as Pandavas, the sons of King Pandu.

Pārtha (पार्थ) : Arjuna is the son of mother Pritha (Prutha / पृथा) (Original name of Kunti Devi).  Pritha’s parents names are Shurasena and Marisha. But later, Pritha was handed over to another king named as Kuntibhoja and thus Pritha came to be known as Kunti, the daughter of Kuntibhoja.

Dhanañjaya (धनञ्जय) : Arjuna is someone had conquered the wealth and all the auspiciousness. This means, he was not a lobhi (greedy) person and never went behind the money and fame. Since he was a devotee of Lord Sri Krishna and Goddess Rukmini Devi, he was always prosperous through his life.

Anagha (अनघ) : Arjuna is someone who is sinless. Arjuna was a pure person and almost never went against the Dharma. He always followed Sanatana Dharma Shastras (Hindu Texts) and also practiced many rituals as per his Kshatriya Dharma. Moreover, he was a great devotee of Lord Sri Krishna.

Vijaya (विजय) : Arjuna was always victorious, invincible and undefeatable. As he was an avatar of Lord Indra, and with the blessings of Lord Sri Krishna he never lost any war against anyone. Someone who is a follower of Lord Sri Krishna, will never taste the fruit of defeat.

Guḍākesha (गुडाकेश) : Arjuna had conquered sleep. In Sanskrit Gudaka + Isha = Sleep + Lord = He was the Lord of the sleep, that is, he had complete control over his sleep and he was never wasting time in over sleep. Gudakesha also means, someone with abundant curly hair, that is, Guda + Kesha.

Bṛihannalā (बृहन्नला) : Arjuna assumed an eunuch form during the incognito exile (Agyatvas), that is, in the 13th year of their forest exile period. Arjuna was teaching classical dance to King Virat’s daughter Uttarakumari (Also called as Uttara). Arjuna was a master of the Hindu classical dance.

Phālguṇa (फाल्गुण) : Arjuna was born under the star (Nakshatra) Uttara Phalguni (Denebola in Leo) and thus Arjuna is also known as Phalguna. Arjuna was born on Srimukha Samvatsara, Phalguna month, Full Moon Day (Purnima Tithi) during the day in Uttara Phalguni Star (Nakshatra).

Mahābāhu (महाबाहु) : Arjuna was someone who had long and strong arms (shoulders). We should remember that he is an avatar of Lord Indra and he is not an ordinary human. In Sanskrit Mahabahu = Maha + Bahu = Great (Strong) + arms (shoulders).

Savyasāchī (सव्यसाची) : Arjuna is someone who can shoot arrows using the right and the left hand with equal consistency and accuracy (Ambidextrous). For this reason Lord Sri Krishna calls Arjuna as Savyasachi in Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 11, Verse 33.

Krishna (कृष्णा): Arjuna is someone who is of dark complexion and conducts great purity. Similar to Lord Sri Krishna, even Arjuna had the dark complexion and thus Arjuna is also known as Krishna. Likewise, Draupadi Devi, Lord (Sage) Vedavyasa Ji are also called as Krishna because of their dark complexion.

Jishṇu (जिष्णु) : Arjuna was always winning all the battles, he was always triumphant in all the wars and was conquering all his enemies. Originally Jishnu is the name of Lord Vishnu (Krishna). In Sri Vishnu Sahasranama, Lord Vishnu is called as Jishnu in Purna Peethika sloka number 22.

Shvetavāhana (श्वेतवाहन) : Arjuna is someone who had milky white horses mounted to his pure white chariot. Those four horses names are Saivya, Sugriva, Meghapushpa and Balahaka. The white horses always shows about the victory of Arjuna. Who can defeat Arjuna when Lord Sri Krishna himself is the charioteer.

Kirīṭī (किरीटी) : Arjuna is someone who wears the celestial crown presented by the Lord Sri Indra, The King of all the Demigods of the Swarga Loka (Heaven). This crown was no ordinary crown, it was a diadem which was studded with costly diamonds of the Swarga Loka (Heaven).

Along with Gandiva, Lord Agni also gives two quivers to Arjuna which would provide unlimited number of arrows to Arjuna.

Bībhatsu (बीभत्सु) : Arjuna is someone who always fights wars in a fair form, stylish way and terrific manner and never does anything horrible in the war which would go against the Dharma. Arjuna always followed the rules and regulations of the battles through out his life including in the Mahabharata (Kurukshetra) war.

Arjuna defeated Karna in Draupadi Svayamvar : Arjuna easily defeated Karna in the Draupadi’s Svayamvara. Arjuna can shoot arrow in dark : Arjuna had learnt the art to shoot the arrow in the dark also.

Arjuna’s another name Gudakesha : Arjuna had a name called Gudakesha, which means someone who could conquer the senses easily. Arjuna had saved Duryodhana : Arjuna had ones saved Duryodhana against Gandharvas and had defeated Gandharvas’ leader Chitrasena.

Arjuna respected Bhima than other brothers : Arjuna had great respects for his elder brother Bhima more than the eldest brother Yudhishthira. Arjuna Shankha name : The Shankha / conch of Arjuna was called as Devadatta.

Arjuna best archer after Bhima : Arjuna was the best archer of his time after Bhima (many know that Bhima used to fight with only with Gadha / mace, but don’t know that Bhima was a much better archer than Arjuna).

Arjuna avatar of Indra Deva : Arjuna was the svayam avatar of Lord Sri Indra Deva. Arjuna / Indra Deva in his earlier life had taken avatar as Vali (during Tretayuga period, that is, during Sri Rama’s period). Arjuna and Subhadra : Arjuna married Lord Krishna’s sister Subhadra.

Arjuna and Urvashi : Once Urvashi proposes to Arjuna to make love with her. But Arjuna refuses this proposal and thus Urvashi slaps him and gives him curse to be born as woman. And thus Arjuna becomes Brihannala (Bruhannala) and teaches dance to Uttara Kumari during the incognito exile (Agyatvas) period.

Arjuna’s reaction after the battle of Mahabharata (Kurukshetra) : Arjuna, the Pandava Prince, after his victory in the Mahabharata (Kurukshetra) war started shout “I have won the battle, I have achieved it”. Lord Hanuman who was positioned himself on the flag of Arjuna’s chariot stabilizing and protecting it advised Arjuna like this –

“Arjuna, you won the war only because the almighty Lord Sri Krishna blessed you with this position. So, you should not get caught up in the ego of victory by yourself and forget the reality and the truth. So you should know the truths and glories of Lord Sri Krishna (Vishnu) through the right Guru.”

Arjuna begged Lord Hanuman to bless him for that. So, Lord Hanuman tells Arjuna, “After taking the incarnation of Bhima, I will be born as Madhva in Kali Yuga. At that time you will be born as a bull and you will hear all my teachings. After the bull birth, you will be enlightened about your previous births and will write commentaries on My Granthas (Hindu texts).”

[Note : Lord Indra (Arjuna) takes first takes an avatar of a bull in Kali Yuga and learn all about the Hindu Texts and later he takes the avatar as Sri Jayateertha Ji and writes commentaries on all the Texts of Sri Madhvacharya Ji. Sri Jayateertha Ji is also called as Teekacharya or Teekagudpadaru.]

Information about Arjuna and Lord Shiva fight story is as given below:

Arjuna did tapasya (penance) of Lord Sri Vishnu and also Lord Shiva with his antaryami Lord Sri Vishnu at a place called Indrakila (इन्‍द्रकिला). After six months Arjuna saw a demon called “mookaasura (मूकासुर / mūkāsura)”, who came in the disguise of a pig.

Arjuna shot an arrow at the boar with his Gandiva bow (dhanush). Lord Shiva who came there in the form of Kirataka (Kiratak) shot those demons with his arrow. Mookasura, a demon disguised as a boar, died in his true form of Rakshasa (demon).

Now, Lord Shiva disguised as Kirataka (Kiratak) told Arjuna that he chased that boar, but Arjuna shot it, so asked him to fight with him. Thus, Arjuna agreed and a battle began between the two. Lord Shiva swallowed all the arrows fired by Arjuna. Now, Arjuna hit Lord Shiva with his Gandiva bow.

Lord Shiva laughed at Arjuna and swallowed Gandiva too. Accordingly both started fighting in Malla Yuddha (Kusti / wrestling). Arjuna was knocked unconscious by Lord Shiva’s severe blows. Later on regaining his consciousness, Arjuna repented of fighting with that Kiratak (Lord Shiva) and worshiped a Shivalinga nearby.

The flowers decorated by Arjuna on that Linga were falling on that Kirataka. Pleased by Arjuna’s worship, Lord Shiva gave him Pashupatastra (पाशुपतास्त्र).

Pandavas Family God (Kuladevata) : Shami (Shamee) tree is the family god of Pandavas and also of Lord Sri Krishna. In Sri Srinivasa Kalyanam, Lord Sri Venkateswara tells that Shami (Shamee) tree is the Kuladevata (Family God) of both Pandavas and he himself).

On this same Shami (Shamee) tree all the five Pandavas had kept their weapons before the start of their incognito exile (Agyatvas) and then later entered the city of the King Virat. During this period of one year Arjuna takes the Brihannala form and teaches classical dance to Uttara (Uttarakumari).

Ayudha Pooja and Arjuna (Pandavas) relationship : Ayudha Puja has been practiced since ancient times. The fact that on the day of Vijayadashami (Ayudha Pooja day) Arjuna retrieved his weapons hidden in the Shami (Shamee) tree to disguise himself (Agyatvas / Incognito exile) for the promised period may also account for the significance of Ayudhapuja.

It is believed that one who begins or renovates his learning to work on the Vijayadasami day (Ayudha Puja day) will secure a grand success as Arjuna did in Kurukshetra (Mahabharata) war.

Arjuna Kruta (Krita) Sri Durga Stuti (Stotram) is as given below in Sanskrit (Hindi), Kannada and English languages:

Before the start of the Mahabharata (Kurukshetra) war, Lord Sri Krishna directs Arjuna to pray to Goddess Durga Devi to ensure victory over the Kauravas in the upcoming war.

Accordingly as per the instructions of Lord Sri Krishna, Arjuna prayed to Goddess Durga with a hymn (stotra, stuti) popularly known as Arjuna Krita (Kruta) Sri Durga Stuti (Stotram). Pleased by Arjuna’s prayers, Goddess Durga Devi appears before him and bestows the boon of victory over the Kauravas in battle.

This hymn is found in the epic Mahabharata – Bhishma Parva. Anyone who recites this Durga Stuti (Stotram) with sincere devotion and faith will get good health, wealth, prosperity, success in all their endeavors and victory over enemies.

One who recites this famous Durga Stotra regularly will be fearless, will not be troubled by evil spirits and will not overcome obstacles in life. Worshiping Goddess Durga with this prayer is very effective and useful when recited during Rahu-kala, especially for those passing through Rahu dasha or afflicted by Rahu dosha.
