DRAUPADI

To Heaven

The war was over. Yudhishithira was now to be king. But he wanted to give up everything. "I have killed my own relations and become a sinner, and I do not wish to be king", he said. He would not listen to his brothers who spoke words of consolation. Then it was this heroic woman, Draupadi, who finally convinced Yudhishthira. She told him, "This was a war fought for justice. The Kauravas brought destruction upon themselves because of their own unjust actions. It is now our duty to protect the people who are still alive, and rule over the land justly."

Yudhishthira then agreed to ascend the throne. The Pandavas ruled over the land only for the good of the people. They also looked after Dhritarashtra and his wife Gandhari affectionately.

Some years later Shri Krishna left the world. Meanwhile Dhritarashtra, Gandhari and Kunthi had all died. Krishna had been the soul of the Pandavas; and so the separation plunged the Pandavas in great sorrow. They crowned their grandson and left the capital. Draupadi, of course, followed them.

When they came near Mount Meru, Draupadi fell down on the ground. Leaving the body there, she attained heaven. Likewise all the Pamdavas attained heaven.
