O foremost among the great thinkers [munis, aunaka], seeing the glaring brahmstra proceeding towards them, the Pavas took up their five respective weapons.
PurportThebrahmstrasare finer than the nuclear weapons.Avatthm discharged the brahmstrasimply to kill the Pavas, namely the five brothers headed by Mahrja Yudhihira and their only grandson, who was lying within the womb of Uttar.Therefore thebrahmstra,more effective and finer than the atomic weapons, was not as blind as the atomic bombs.SANKHYA
E.T. HallCarl G. JungCONTEXT
Sages x SutaSrimad Bhagavatam is the ShelterHistory of SBWho is Maharaja Pariksit and What is the AmbienceSB 1.8.6Lord r Ka caused three well-performed avamedha-yajas [horse sacrifices] to be conducted by Mahrja Yudhihira and thus caused his virtuous fame to be glorified in all directions, like that of Indra, who had performed one hundred such sacrifices.SB 1.8.7Lord r Ka then prepared for His departure. He invited the sons of Pu, after having been worshiped by the brhmaas, headed by rla Vysadeva. The Lord also reciprocated greetings.SB 1.8.8As soon as He seated Himself on the chariot to start for Dvrak, He saw Uttar hurrying toward Him in fear.
SB 1.8.9Uttar said: O Lord of lords, Lord of the universe! You are the greatest of mystics. Please protect me, protect me, for there is no one else who can save me from the clutches of death in this world of duality.SB 1.8.10O my Lord, You are all-powerful. A fiery iron arrow is coming towards me fast. My Lord, let it burn me personally, if You so desire, but please do not let it burn and abort my embryo. Please do me this favor, my Lord.SB 1.8.11Sta Gosvm said: Having patiently heard her words, Lord r Ka, who is always very affectionate to His devotees, could at once understand that Avatthm, the son of Drocrya, had thrown the brahmstra to finish the last life in the Pava family.
SB 1.8.12O foremost among the great thinkers [munis] [aunaka], seeing the glaring brahmstra proceeding towards them, the Pavas took up their five respective weapons.SB 1.8.13The almighty Personality of Godhead, r Ka, having observed that a great danger was befalling His unalloyed devotees, who were fully surrendered souls, at once took up His Sudarana disc to protect them.SB 1.8.14The Lord of supreme mysticism, r Ka, resides within everyones heart as the Paramtm. As such, just to protect the progeny of the Kuru dynasty, He covered the embryo of Uttar by His personal energy.
SB 1.8.15O aunaka, glory of Bhgus family, although the supreme brahmstra weapon released by Avatthm was irresistible and without check or counteraction, it was neutralized and foiled when confronted by the strength of Viu [Lord Ka].SB 1.8.16O brhmaas, do not think this to be especially wonderful in the activities of the mysterious and infallible Personality of Godhead. By His own transcendental energy He creates, maintains and annihilates all material things, although He Himself is unborn.SB 1.8.17Thus saved from the radiation of the brahmstra, Kunt, the chaste devotee of the Lord, and her five sons and Draupad addressed Lord Ka as He started for home.
