महाभारत का युद्ध चल रहा था। एक ओर अर्जुन थे, जिनके सारथी थे ‘श्री कृष्ण’। तो दूसरी ओर कर्ण थे और उनका सारथी ‘शल्य’। भगवान श्री कृष्ण ने कर्ण के सारथी से कहा- ‘तुम हमारे विरुद्ध जरूर लड़ना पर मेरी एक बात जरूर मानना।’
The war of was going on. On one side were Arjuna, whose charioteers were ‘Sri Krishna’ On the other hand, Karna and his charioteer ‘Saliya’ Lord Krishna said to Karnal charioteer: “You definitely must fight against me but I have to accept one thing.”
When the curse strikes, say, ‘This is also a blow, you do not know how to strike’. Just keep repeating these sentences. Sarathi Shalya accepted the word of Krishna. The war started. On every strike of the ear, the surgeon said, ‘Is this also a blow? You do not know how to strike. ‘
On each and every attack of Arjuna, Krishna says, “Wow what a blow is. What is the target? Karna was discouraged every time he was told by his charioteer. ‘ Arjun’s power grew and Pandavas became more powerful than before. That is why the promotion is nectar for the mind while the discouraged mind is the first ladder of defeat.
