Mahabharat - Evil Vs. Evil ? ( book review)

Good can never win over evil if the methods of fighting the war are as unfair as the evil energy being fought against . If evil is use to defeat evil, it becomes a war of evil vs. evil wherein good is sidelined as an unnecessary obstacle to progress. For good to win over evil, the energy of goodness has to be kept in the centre while making every choice or taking every decision.

Evil mocks goodness by defying it in application. Evil is an energy which  cannot be defined by caste , class or regional difference. Evil can only be defined as that which preaches goodness but spreads disharmony in people's hearts thus creating a duality between the words spoken and the actions taken .
Why Good never won over evil is correctly depicted in books by Anand Neelkanthan , Devdutt Patnaik and similar contemporary writers who give a new perspective to existing scriptures , thus opening up new awareness on the path of evolution which have remained hidden over centuries due to blind faith ruling over sensible worship to a higher,  divine consciousness.

At the ending of Kaliyug and the beginning of Satiyuga, these books shed light on why hypocrisy has ruled over Earth and why fake good image structures have to be demolished for happiness and positive energy to rule over Earth in the future. .

The war of Mahabharata , which depicts how life functions in Kaliyuga, is more a revenge against hyocrisy of royalty than a war of good vs. evil . The methods of cheating truth to win were used rampantly which successfully won the Pandavas the war, but the principles of hypocrisy continued to rule as evil felt it was too powerful to be won by fair mans. The same means of cheating to win which were used for defeating  the sons of god in the Game of dice, were used to kill the sons of man ; thus portraying that fairness and truth never won any war.
Till shortcuts of winning are refused and the war of truth is won by practising truth wining the self , good cannot win over win. For God to win over the devil or good to win over evil, all that is preached as good has to be applied in action, verified by application , accepted or rejected depending on the radiance of positive energy from the thoughts and feelings when applied in action. Goodness is an evolving concept and cannot be rigidly held as bricks of stones held by tradition. Goodness has to change with context and circumstances such that spiritual awareness flows with technological development and progress is accentuated , not blocked by following spirituality in action.

The book, RISE OF KALI ( Ajaya book 2 ),  reads more true than the original Geeta. The author, Anand Neelkanthan , is a channel used by Gods clearly as he gives unseen perspectives which are clearly explainable by karmic laws. There is a bias towards the negative side but that is just to balance the bias from those who claim to be the positive side, but are effectively as negative in action. The war is virtually shown as a battle between Shakuni and Krishna. Shakuni fools Duryodhan and insults the Pandavas repeatedly while Krishna takes back revenge in the war by killing them with deceit, by claiming to be God. However, he cannot save his own wives and the city from ruin subsequently as he is cursed by Gandhari.
The energy rotation can be completely explained by the law of vibrations. For example, Abhimanyu betrayed his best friend who was the son of Duryodhan and was a poet at heart to marry Balram's daughter, by mocking her fiancée and his friend in public; but later betrayed her also as he married another woman who he loved more; later, he killed this best friend in war, when he stood without weapons only to bring glory to his father; and this attracted the same energy of betrayal by elders.. These facts are also written in the Gita but from a different perspective which does not explain the law of vibrations. Karma circulates such that if you betray those weaker than you, you are betrayed by those stronger than you at a different time. How your intentions circulate out and attract the same energy is explained in the current perspective, in detail in my book Creation of Happiness; The ENERGY WAR, a soul's perspective.

The book also indicates that Duryodhan is not a good king in spite of his stand on caste system where he seeks equality for all. It shows that his family lives in opulent luxuries while the masses starve. He insults Draupadi to gain an edge over Pandavas in the game of dice which is won by treachery of which he is not aware and hence, is shown as a politically inept prince who is more concerned with personal victory than welfare of the masses.  When the same treachery is used against him by Krishna in war, he feels cheated but does not realize that his own actions were at fault from the beginning as he trusted the uncle who was plotting against Bheeshma and creating rifts between brothers, where none existed.  Divide and Rule was a strategy employed by Shakuni and other politicians of the era, which divided the family of rulers and created expenses of war, wherein mass welfare and education were sacrificed to create soldiers who were virtually used as sacrificial goats in war.

Draupadi is a created reason for war but is treated just a show piece to be protected than a woman with sensibility. As a spirit involved in co- creation, she attracts the ''cheer haran'' as the law of vibrations escalate the feelings which you focus upon .She always is focused on sadness that she has to marry five men and she is made to realize through the cheer haran that she is saved from marrying a 100 men, which could have been had Krishna not saved her in time.
Krishna is shown to be a man who receives intuitions more than as a God. He upholds the caste system but realizes at the end, that a Brahmin's spirit can be as corrupt and negative as a Shudra. He dies with repentance, unable to protect his wife and city due to a curse by Gandhari, which becomes effective as the war is won by deceit and hence, the same energy gets attracted in Krishna's own life.  His son, to protect whose actions, he kills Eklavya, a Naga leader of fame, is known to be rapist who takes the kingdom to ruin. Eklavya’s story also follows the law of vibrations wherein his amputated thumb is only a symbol of karmic repayment and is no reason for his defeat anywhere. In spite of the missing thumb, he has the power to defeat Arjuna in a dual and can only be killed subsequently from behind, by deceit. All these facts are also verifiable by other versions of the Mahabharata.

The book explains how truth can get biased by people seeking revenge over peacefulness and that good cannot win over evil if those portraying to be good are as hypocritical as those called evil.

The book also points to the fact that Karna  or Krishna could have prevented the war .

Krishna could have prevented the war by not instigating the Pandavas against Duryodhan because he felt that Duryodhan was against Brahmins while he supported the caste system. However, Brahmins turned out to be as corrupt as others , as he found out later.

Karna could have prevented the war by accepting in public that he was son of Kunti. Yudhishter was ready to offer him the post of the king and marry Draupadi to him, also. Karna was in love with Draupadi before she got married to the Pandavas. However, he thought he was being bribed with temptation and did not realise that he could have saved thousands of lives by choosing his love over war . He had refused to reveal to Duryoudhan that he was the king in fear of betraying his friendship to Duryodhan while being aware that there was large scale starvation in the country when the war was announced. When all sons of the Pandavas had died by being murdered brutally and Yudhishter found out that Karna was their eldest brother, after the war, he cursed Kunti by saying that no woman would be able to keep a secret for long .

Love and peace are the highest vibrations which uphold truth, justice and fairness. Victory of love leads to spread of justice and innovation, while betrayal of love leads to spread of injustice and destruction, as has been proved again and again by subsequent wars in history.

It is no coincidence that the book comes at a time when the age of Kali is ending. As predicted, Kaliyuga is to begin its end by 2025 and the age of truth vs. Satiyug is to rise. Books and other means of spreading awareness seek to help people understand that hypocrisy may win a war and a good image but serves no purpose in generating satisfaction or inner happiness.
