Dharmakshetra and Kurukshethra are not merely places near Delhi or Hastinapur on the map of India. Nor are the Pandavas and Kauravas merely princely clans figuring in the tale. The human body is called kshetra (field), and so Dharmakshetra, is in every one. When the owner of the body discards all desires, passions and impulses, then the body becomes Dharma-kshetra (the field of righteousness)! A child has in its heart only Dharmakshetra, for it has not developed sensual desires. It accepts whatever is offered. Its ego is not yet ramified into the objective world of multiplicity. But later, when it grows branches and foliage, the Dharmakshetra takes the shape of Kurukshetra – the battlefield where the mind struggles between hope and despair, and is forced to consume the diverse fruits, sweet and bitter, as a result of its own choice of actions. Actions illumined by Jnana or wisdom bring about success. The Jnana that God alone exists can win the grace of God!
