Let go

I got home on time yesterday (three cheers..) and managed to catch Mahabharat on TV.

For some reason, I got wondering about Karna. Now, this man was intelligent, learned, strong willed and skilled - all the characteristics of a great epic hero. Right?

Wrong.. He didnt have that one characteristic that marks the truly great ones - the power to let go, to forgive and forget.
Only one flaw, and he lived a bitter life. And died a bitter death.

Moral of the post: Its up to you, the individual, to not let the past overshadow your present. Let your life be a clean slate and live in present. That'll make life easier, for better.

Thats right. we all need to know when to forgive and move on. Because if we dont, the baggages of our non-forgiveness will pull us back and down.

No Body is perfect.. One can say that Even Pandavas didnt forgive Duryodhana.. But they have great GUIDE - Krishna with them.

Karana has one great quaility - Dont Leave your Friend, even in worst situations.

His life was bitter just because of his loyality..
