Extract from Bharathathil Dharmam by Sri Velukkudi Krishnan
Dhirtharashtran sends Sanjayan as his messenger to the Pandavas. Sanjayan returns to Hastinapura late in the evening and tells Dhirtharashtran that he is too tired to talk and would give all the details of his trip the next day.
An anxious Dhirtharashtran is unable to sleep and calls Vidhuran for guidance expecting the latter to talk only in his favour. Vidhuran being the incarnation of Dharmaraja asks Dhirtharashtran point blank if he has usurped another’s property that he is unable to sleep. That Dhirtharashtran avoids Vidhuran’s question and all this lead to the battle of Kurukshetra is another story. But the example Sri Krishnan gave for usurping one’s property was classic. Every human is a Jeevatma and is part of God – the Paramatma. We are HIS property – a part of HIM. But all the time we see ourselves as separate from the Paramatma thereby stealing HIS property! We must think that all of us are HIS parts and HIS property.
