Jealousy

In the book, Miteiya equates Jealousy with the character of Dussasan. Dussasan was brother of Duryodhan and has been shown like his shadow. The traits of Dussasan are linked with traits of Duryodhan. The feeling of insecurity is the main reason of jealousy. Dussasan was constantly under threat of loosing the status, as Pandavs would arrive in Hastinapur.

Miteiya compares Dussasan with Envy of Greek mythology. While Envy could be an important constituent in self-evolution and improvement, it has been treated as a vice. This is due to the fact that envy and jealousy have same roots of origin. Jealousy is closely associated with anger as seen in the epic of Mahabharata, wherein Duryodhan and Dussasan remains as close brothers.

Dussasan did have any single mode of exhibition but was rather present in all the meetings and discussions. This suggests that feeling of Jealousy could manifest through various means.

Miteiya’s discourse during the death of Dussasan is also an enlightening discourse. At this stage, he compares Dussasan with Envy of Greek mythology. The remedy to resolve such psyches has been beautifully painted by Miteiya.
