Lord Chandrama (Moon) never wanted his son to fight in Mahabharat. But under a few circumstances, he had to let his son travel to earth & fight in Mahabharat.
How & why did Lord Chandrama (Moon), felt so helpless? How did his son Varcha fight in Mahabharat? Let’s find out in today’s episode.
As you all know, whenever the balance between good & evil was disturbed, when evil took over the world At that time Lord Vishnu used to take an avatar & defeat the evil on earth. Also, to help Lord Vishnu other gods had to either take an avatar on earth or send their newborn son.
In Treta Yuga, Lord Vishnu took the avatar of Lord Ram & the other gods incarnated their son as monkeys & bear. In the same way in Dvapara Yuga, Lord Vishnu took the avatar of Lord Krishna to defeat evil.
At that time Lord Brahma told all the other lords, To help Lord Krishna, either incarnate themselves on earth or send their newborn sons. In the next episode, we shall talk about which gods gave birth to their newborn sons during Mahabharat? In this episode, we shall discuss Lord Chandrama’s, Son Vargas.
When Lord Chandrama (Moon) heard the news, that his son Varchas had to incarnate on earth Lord Chandrama decided not to accept Lord Brahma’s decision.
And said, that his son Varchas will not incarnate on earth. At that time, all the other lords told Lord Chandrama, that it’s our duty to protect our religion.
Then how can you or your son say no to your duty? Lord Chandrama felt cornered by the other lords. But he had one condition, that his son will not stay on earth for a long period.
He will be born as Abhimanyu, son of Arjun. Who is the son of Lord Krishna’s friend Devraj Indra? And, in the absence of Lord Krishna & Arjun, Abhimanyu will take part in the war & die a warrior’s death. And that’s how he will be praised as a great warrior.
After that, Lord Chandrama had another condition, That Abhimanyu’s son will be the next in line for the throne. As you all know, Yudhishthira was the eldest of all the Pandavas. And according to the rules, he was made the King.
And keeping the rules in mind, Yudhishthira’s son had the birthright to his throne & Kingdom. Then how could Arjun’s son become the next king as Bheema was elder to Arjun? But due to this condition, all the lords were thrown in a tizzy.
All the lords collectively decided to agree to Lord Chandrama’s (Moon) conditions. And then Lord Chandrama’s son Varchas incarnated on earth as Abhimanyu.
And in the web spun by Dronacharya, Abhimanyu decided to fight alone & died a warrior’s death. And that’s why Lord Krishna did not save Abhimanyu on the battlefield.
