VIDURA

'Follow the Path'

Dhritharashtra's words and behavior disgusted Vidura. He was also worried about the hardships suffered by the Pandavas in the forest. He went to the forest to meet them.

When Vidura came to their hermitage the Pandavas welcomed him and made affectionate enquirer. Thereafter Vidura narrated to them the circumstances leading to his departure from Hastinapura. He told them of the exchange of words he had with Dhritharashtra.

"The patient man triumphs. Whether in difficulties or in happiness one must behave in the same way with relatives; they must be treated with courtesy. Persons with such a noble nature will prosper. Conduct yourselves in this way." Thus he preached to the Pandavas. The Pandavas promised Vidura that they would follow his advice. When Dhritharashtra heard that Vidura had left Hastinapura, he was very unhappy. He lost consciousness. When he recovered, he called Sanjaya and said to him: "Vidura is my brother, my friend; not only that, he knows righteous conduct. Since he left me my mind has been disturbed. If he is not with me I cannot live. Search for him and get him here quickly." Vidura came to know that his elder brother was pinning for him and that he was miserable and returned to Hastinapura immediately. Dhritharashtra was happy at this. But Duryodhana was not pleased with Vidura's return.
