Sanjaya, the One with Divine Vision

The blind king, Dhritrashtra, was eager to know the happenings of the Mahabharata war. Sanjaya was Dhritrashtra’s advisor and charioteer. The great sage, Vyas, had granted him the divine ability of seeing events from a distance. So, he narrated the daily events of the war for Dhritrashtra. Sanjaya was the first one who narrated the Bhagavad Gita other than Lord Krishna himself. The Bhagavad Gita is a discussion between Lord Krishna and Arjun. However, this discussion was repeated as a recital by Sanjaya to Dhritrashtra. One day, after describing the scene on the battlefield, Sanjaya told King Dhritrashtra, “I know you are hoping that the Kauravas will be victorious since they are assisted by great warriors like Bhishma, Drona and Karna. However, in my opinion, victory lies on the side where Lord Krishna is present.” Victory was certain for the Pandavas because Lord Krishna was with them as Arjun’s charioteer.
