King Sarangathdwaja wanted to attack Dwaraka to avenge his father’s Death, the Pandya King after obtaining weapons from Bhisma, Drona, Balarama and Kripa.
However wiser counsel prevailed and he dropped the idea.
Later he fought alongside the side of the Pandavas against Drona(7:23).
He was rate as an Athiratha by Bhishma( (5,172)
Interesting that The Jews were the descendants of the Yadavas, Lord Krishna’s Clan.
Twenty two tribes left India after the Mahabharata War.
Of the 22 tribes that left the region in quick succession, the tem that preceded North met with disaster and perished.
Out of the remaining 12 a few families dropped off and settled down in regions currently known as Iraq, Syria, Palestine, Egypt Greece and Russia.
That great exodus took place 5,743 years ago. The Passover year which the Jews commemorate provides a tally of the period elapsed from the time they left India. … One of their monarchs was Solomon.
And, He having arrived at the sea-shore, then dispatched with great assurance messengers unto the illustrious Vibhishana, the grandson of Pulastya and the ruler of Lanka (2:30).
Vasudeva Krishna slew king Pandya by striking his breast against his, and moved down the Kalingas in battle (5:48). The Cholas and the Pandyas were mentioned as vanquished by Krishna at (7:11).
The mighty Sarangadhwaja, the king of the Pandyas, has white steeds, decked with armour set with stones of lapis lazuli.
His country was invaded and his father was slain by Krishna in battle. Obtaining weapons then from Bhishma and Drona, Bala Rama and Kripa, prince Sarangadhwaja became, in weapons, the equal of Rukmi and Karna and Arjuna and Achyuta.
He then desired to destroy the city of Dwaraka and subjugate the whole world.
Lord Krishna was so impressed with his Archery, he made sure, when he visited Duryodhan to negotiate peace before the onset of the Mahabharata War,he made sure that Duryodhan insulted Vidura, as a result Vidura did not take part n the Battle .
Vidura was also known for his Righteousness and moral judgment,
While every one kept quiet when Draupadi was being stripped in the open court of Duryodhan,he was the lone figure to condemn the act,even Bhishma kept quiet on this occasion.
His Vidura Needi, dealing with Dharma, Righteousness is a standard text.
Vidura had been on pilgrimage and he planted an Aswatha tree, near Bangalore, India.
The name Vidurashwatha is derived from that of a big Ashwatha (Ficus religiosa) tree is in this village
According to a legend of the times of Mahabharata, this tree was planted by Vidura, a courtier in the kingdom of Dhritarashtra; and hence the name Vidurashwatha.
There are three issues(?), which a Non Hindu uses to pick on Lord Krishna and uses them to discredit Hinduism and Lord Krishna.
1.Lord Krishna was with many a woman for pleasure,Rasa Kreeda,
2.Lord Krishna had 16,000 wives and
3.Lord Krishna won the Mahabharata War by unfair means and he advocated killing.
Krishna himself answers to His ways in the conduct of the Mahabharata War in Bhagavad Gita.( if one can understand what He says, for it is very subtle)
On his 16000 wives I shall be posting an article.
