Edmond Burke said: “Those who don’t study history are destined to repeat it…”
“Even though the Mahabharata is in some ways a compendium and history of the times that preceded Krishna’s appearance 5000 years ago, it is also a cautionary tale about the consequences of quarrel inside the “Family of Mankind.” All wars are between “cousins” and they are painful for anyone with feelings. On the other hand, it is equally a story of the need for action when it comes to protecting Mother Earth and the innocent animals and humans that live upon Her body. The saying is: “Bad things happen when good people do nothing.” The paradox presented in the Mahabharata is first about the wonderful and terrible consequences of human free will. At our best we are simply divine, at our worst we truly are ~ the worst. Because this world is a campus, a place of learning, it goes without saying that we learn first by making mistakes. This means that life on Earth is messy and complicated, especially when many students forget why they are here. In the Mahabharata, the first strategy of the good cousins was to defer to evil in the hope of avoiding conflict. On one hand this is a good strategy for avoiding war. On the other hand, without opposition, the most selfish and ignorant students will rule the campus unless they are opposed.”
