When all the 5 Pandavas married Draupadi it was a difficult decision for all those who were involved in making the decision.
Any one would have experienced a foul smell in this marriage. But, the marriage was not the height of whimsicality, or an animalistic indiscriminative relationship. Neither was it arrogant or sensual rather it was their strong destiny which forced them to go through what normally or abnormally one would not even think of in a dream.
Lord Krishna and the great sage and compiler of all sastras, Vyasadeva also gave their approval for this marriage.Yudhisthira maharaja, who was a personification of Dharma agreed and said, he could do nothing that was not dharmik.
From another perspective, how difficult it must have been to manage such a marriage. It could have led to so much of suspicion, mistrust, conspiracy and conflict amongst them. Each could have complained and fought for Draupadi’s exclusive affection. On the other hand this marriage was one of the most efficiently managed marriages in history.
Who gets the credit for this?
All of them, because even if one was on the wrong path, it could have created disaster.
The pandava's marriage teaches us unity in diversity. Even if one unit in diversity, makes the claim that he is the best then it creates an artificial oneness, because others are eliminated, which is anti-nature. It creates war. And at the same time there has to be one uniform goal other wise it is only diversity, not unity in diversity .
without unity in diversity the marriage would have been chaotic, indisciplianary, hazy and ultimately would have no destination.
Panadavas so dynamically represent diversity while having a unified goal. Kurus on the other hand were united but lacked diversity. There was no intellectual rigor and independent thinking. They became a herd going down the valley of death.
Pandavas were united, and diverse at the same time They were a herd but were guided by Lord Krishna about when to come together and when to have a separate identity. So they were victorious, not only in war, but in the war of life, which was full of diversity and challenges and yet they sailed through it successfully unitedly and at the end of the day were ready to walk their journey alone confident of the final destination of life- from death to divinity.
We have to make a choice---
Whether we want a journey of death to divinity or death to destruction?
