Victory Is There, Where Dharma Is

Gandhari’s eldest son, DurOdhana, came to her for benediction. She did not say, “I pray for Our victory!” or “Yours will be the victory!” She said, “Where there is Dharma, victory will be there.” She knew perfectly well that on the other side, in the other party, was Yudhishthira, the Son of Dharma, Dharma incarnate, who would win the victory. She could not bless her son saying, “Yours will be the victory.” So she said, “Where there is Dharma, there will be the victory.”
