1/16/22 Mahabharata Class Notes



CMP Bala Vihar® Grade 8A

Class 16 : Summary

  • RAW review: We reviewed the RAW on imperialism - its ills and benefits. We looked at examples of Britain, Germany etc and talked about the difference between them and the Pandavas' intentions.

  • Story: We covered the Rajasuya yajna, Sishupala's death and Duryodhana's humiliation and envy leading to Shakuni devising an evil plan to cheat the Pandavas out of their wealth through the means of a dice game.

  • Reeflections: We reflected on the reward and price to pay for imperialism and different ways in which Pandavas' show of strength and riches was interpreted. We talked about Krishna's decisive action against adharma as in regards to Sishupala and Duryodhana's negative emotions and the wrong turn he takes to achieve his ends.

  • RAW: What does covetousness mean? How does this destroy one? What are some of the opposite virtues? How to develop those?

  • Bhagavad Gita Chapter 12: We learned to chant shlokas 12 & 13.
