  4. Thank you! Treat to see this!

  5. Thank you for explaining the lyrics pf such a beautiful song...<3 mahabharat<3 draupadi!!♥

  6. Its good but I like the meaning of Tamil version lyrics more :)

    1. can you give me the lyrics of tamil version please?

  7. thanks , saya sangat ngfans sekali sama pemain mahabaratha.. i'm from indonesia :)

  8. thanks a tonne....i m a grt fan of mahabharat...are u too??

  9. The worship of beauty of a woman without any kind of vulgarity... Our best open minded culture..

    1. 🙏🥺 seriously it's touching my heart ❤️

  10. If you could give it thought from scientific angle...

    No one could be born from a fire that too a full grown women not possible...

    Draupadi was an Alien gifted to Drupad from the Gods above so was Dhrustadyumna...So were the Karn, The Yudhisthir, The Bheem, Arjuna and Nakul Sahdev...

    With meaning mentioned here...Sagittarius like arms..is misinterpreted..It clearly states that she originated from Sagittarius constellation..

    It's very first line of the verse... so by common sense it's like her introduction...like we introduce ourselves or someone e.g. he is Ajay from Mumbai...why the writer would describe her arms in the first line???


    She emerged from fire...Could be a spaceship tractor beam...like we see in Hollywood movies...Fire engulfs...doesnt create.

    Third, Amara Varini, can be depicted as her protective gear when she landed on earth...A lady in a protective gear...

    Fourth, There are no words to describe is half explanation...Yasya nasti upama bhuvi...means there are no words or a title of earth that can describe her appearance (Alien appearance)

    The Duryodhan was rightfully kept out of the Swayamvar because he was

    1. Lmao go back to watching your capeshit

    2. Go to hell with your idiotic science!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3. Donot compare our scripts with scientific angle. Science is growing every day and its knowledge is not complete. Clearly mentioned in epic she emerged from middle or yagna i.e. from fire thats why she is called "Yagsainayi". Donot compre her with normal humans. She was Goddess with special powers thats why she emerged from yag or fire.

  11. Duryodhan was rightfully kept out of Swayamvar because he was human born...Karn was the right choice for her but both belonged to fire elements Karn was Son of Sun God and Draupadi the daughter of fire...This couple would hv brought havoc hence Arjun the Son of Indra (Rain) was married to her to keep the elemental balance...Opposites attract theory...many such things can be shared...

  12. Sanskrit shlok padhne me alag h pr song me kuch alag sound krta h mtlb bahut se jagah aap Sanskrit shlok ke sath sun ke dekiye difference dikhega

  13. Lekin translation bilkul sahi hai

  14. Lekin translation bilkul sahi hai

  15. You idiot, stop insulting Indian culture with your modern bullshit. Draupadi was a woman born as an adult from a sacrificial fire. If you don't believe in mythology and gods, you don't deserve to be called an Indian. Go to America or whatever weird modern place you belong to. Actually I think you are only the alien. Go back to Planet: I HATE INDIAN MYTHOLOGY, but DON'T YOU DARE CALL YAGYASENI PANCHALI AN ALIEN, OR ANY PANDAVA, OR KARNA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go to hell with your idiotic science.
    Loads of Hate,
    From an ardent worshipper of Lord Krishna

    1. This was for the person who started explaining the SCIENCE Point of View

    2. Not for the author of the post. The author has explained and translated nicely

    3. Thanks for the meaning of the shloka..draupadi was one of the most sacred and beautiful women of our mythology and epics.
      She was a jewel of women.
      Those giving negative comments can't be called hindu.
      Science is a child that is born some thousand years ago..our vedas,mantras etc are sanatana that is timeless.
