vivah

jab maharaj virat ne yah suna ki unake putr uttar ne samast kaurav paksh ke yoddhaoan ko parajit karake apani gayoan ko lauta liya hai, tab ve anandatirek mean apane putr ki prashansa karane lage. is par 'kank' (yudhishthir) ne kaha- "jisaki sarathi brihannala (arjun) ho, usaki vijay to nishchit hi hai". maharaj virat ko yah asahy ho gaya ki rajyasabha mean pasa bichhane ke liye niyukt, brahman kank unake putr ke badale napuansak brihannala ki prashansa kar raha hai. unhoanne pasa khianchakar kank ko de mara, jisase kank ki nasika se rakt nikalane laga. sairandhri bani huee draupadi dau di aee aur samane katori rakhakar kank ki nasika se nikalate hue rakt ko bhoomi par girane se bachaya. jab raja virat ko tisare din pata laga ki unhoanne kank ke vesh mean apane yahaan nivas kar rahe maharaj yudhishthir ka hi apaman kiya hai, tab unhean apane-ap par atyant khed hua. unhoanne anajan mean hue aparadhoan ke parimarjan aur paandavoan se sthayi maitri-sthapana ke uddeshy se apani putri uttara aur arjun ke vivah ka prastav kiya. is par arjun ne kaha- 'rajanh! maianne kumari uttara ko brihannala ke roop mean varsh bhar nrity aur sangit ki shiksha di hai. yadi maian rajakumari ko patni roop mean svikar karata hooan to log mujh par aur apaki putri ke charitr par sandeh kareange aur guru-shishy ki parampara ka apaman hoga. rajakumari mere liye putri ke saman hai. isaliye apane putr abhimanyu ki patni ke roop mean maian uttara ko svikar karata hooan. bhagavan shrikrishn ke bhanaje ko jamata ke roop mean svikar karana apake liye bhi gaurav ki bat hogi.' sabhi ne arjun ki dharmanishtha ki prashansa ki aur uttara ka vivah abhimanyu se sampann ho gaya.

  • is samay rajakumariyoan ko any shiksha ke sath-sath nachane-gane ki bhi avashyak shiksha di jati thi. is shiksha se ve apana manoranjan to kar sakati thian, sath hi parivarik manovinod ke bhi upayog mean ati thian. dhani ho chahe nirdhan, prabhavashali ho athava sadharan shreni ka, samaj ka bhay sabako rahata tha. yah bhay n hota to sambhavatah uttara ka vivah paandavoan ke vansh mean n hokar kisi any parivar mean hota. vastav mean us samay paandav log sankat sah rahe the. n to unake pas dhan-daulat thi aur n hi raj-pat. unase rishtedari karane mean matsy-naresh ka lokalaj se bachane ke atirikt aur kaun-sa hit tha? haan, paandavoan ko avashy labh hua. unhean ek prabal sahayak mila aur bahut-si sampatti bhi prapt huee.
