"Patience for a While"

Vyasa went into the forest looking the Pandavas. After a few days he came to the place where they were living. I Pandavas were delighted to see the 'rishi’ who came unexpectedly. The Pandavs bowed down to the 'rishi'.They had prepared some gruel for their meal. They offered it to the 'rishi' and then partook o of what was left. Vyasa was overjoyed their warmth and hospitality. When they began to talk of their life in the forest Draupadi could not hold back her tea Vyasa was deeply touched. He said "Daughter, don't grieve. These hardship won't last long. By and by, Dharma (righteousness) will triumph and Adharma (evil) will fall. For the present, you ha to put up with these sorrows. The Pandav are pious and heroic. The very purpose of their birth is to uproot the Kauravas. Do not weep."

The Pandavas felt comforted. Vyasa spent a couple of days with them. Then the Pandavas continued their journey.
