This part of the book takes the reader back in 2nd millennia BC in the Greek civilization.
In this section various demigods of Greek mythology are connected with the characters of Mahabharata.
There seems to be continuity of demigods in Greek mythology and can be well compared to previously explained Roman demigods. This part of the book further moves into decoding of Mahabharata with descriptive decoding of each character and each and every myth.
Decoding of Mahabharata is one of major component of the entire book and comprises a major portion of Part 2. This book comprises of cross-references made towards Gilgamesh while explaining Ganesh, as a writer of Mahabharata. Vyas has been compared with Zeus of Greek mythology.
Various insights open us when each and every character of Mahabharata is decoded and presented as symbolic presentation of particular human psyche. For example, Bhism is equated to an “Individual Soul” but his association with characters like Chitragandha, Vichitravirya and Vyas as his cousins reveals the real nature of “Individual Soul”.
Character called Dhritrashtra is symbol of Ignorance. Miteiya speaks about various previous births of Dhritrashtra to explain that Ignorance can also be bliss. Miteiya compares Dhritrashtra with “David” of Torah. Miteiya comes heavily against Gandhari, the symbol of Hypocrisy.
Book further decodes all the characters like Pandavs and Kauravs. Miteiya equates 5 Pandavs as five Senses and Madri as a symbol of “Sexual Attraction”. While decoding Madri, Miteiya equates her to Aphrodite Pandemos of Greek mythology.
Miteiya does not make discrete comments about characters and myths. But he follows the conventional Mahabharata systematically. Due to this, there is continuity in the story and each and every character and myth of the scripture is decoded. Reasons behind each and every event are connected to Human evolution. Understanding Mahabharata is key to understand “Human Psychology”.
Post understanding these characters, there begins the battle of Kurukshetra. This battle is beautiful representation of inter-relation between various human psyches. This battle is key to understand the mechanism of controlling one’s own psyches.
Before the beginning of battle, Arjun raises question of “Intent” and “Action”. Krishna beautifully explains as to why a person should participate in this battle of human psyches. Miteiya intentionally does not go deeper in Bhagwat Gita and explains the same in Part 3 during his discourse over “Yogacarabhumikasarita”.
This book ends with the death of characters in Mahabharata. A reader is advised to understand this book in detail, as the definitions laid in Mahabharata would be used extensively during decoding of Buddhism, Quran and Astavakra Geeta.
