VIDURA

The Meaning

Just as the words of Vidura were a riddle to many people who heard them they were a riddle to Kunthi, the mother of Yudhishtira, and to his brothers. Their curiosity was aroused.

When they had gone some distance Kunthi said: "I could not follow Vidura's words. But you nodded, showing you understood. What does he mean? If there is no objection tell us."

Yudhishtira replied: "Mother, this is what it means-be careful about fire and poison. There is a secret passage-find it out. Be bold. You will be benefited by it."

The Pandavas and their mother could not understand why Vidura cautioned them when they were on their way to Varanavatha. However, they decided that they should be very careful in the new residence, which they were about to reach.
