The Birth of the Pandavas and the Kauravas

I love stories.  Especially Yoga stories.  Especially when they're told by really good storytellers.

Here are a couple of videos if you like Yoga stories too.  They come from the Mahabharat, or the Story of India which is the setting for the jewel-like 18th chapter, the Bhagavad Gita, or Song of God.

Many people bristle at the setting of the Bhagavad Gita, a tense battleground where God Himself (Krishna) urges a young Prince (Arjuna) to fight against family, friends, and teachers.  I did too until I actually read the Mahabharat.

Learning more about the two sets of warring cousins, the Pandavas, and the Kauravas, their exploits and their ancestors helped me relate to the "inevitability" and "righteousness" of the war.  It illuminated the need for action, even when there was no positive outcome in sight.

Sadhguru, founder of Isha is a gifted storyteller.  In these two videos, he really brings the background of the Bhagavad Gita to life. 

I hope they will help you in your study of Yoga, the Bhagavad Gita, and your Self.
