The story of Arjuna

Arjuna was a great legendary hero and warrior in the epic of MAHABHARATA.  He became a great warrior in archery through his sheer hard work, dedication and continuous die-heart practice.

When he was learning his art of warfare in the ashram of his guru Dronacharya; he continuously practiced with his bow and arrows. When his brothers and other fellow students were busy in playing games and sports; he kept himself engrossed in practicing his art of archery. He never wasted his time in any other useless things. He was devoted towards one goal.

When all the students of the ashram were fallen in deep slumber at night, Arjuna woke up in the dead of the night and practised with his bow and arrows and hitting the target.

One day guru Dronacharya woke up suddenly with the thrilling sounds of something hitting. He came out from his room and found Arjuna who was practicing with his bow and arrows.

Guru Dronacharya asked Arjuna in a surprised tone, “Son, why are you practicing with your bow and arrows at this hour? You don’t want to sleep?”

Arjuna halted his practiced in the middle; he folded his both hands with revere and said, “Gurudeva, I couldn’t get sound sleep until I wouldn’t learn the art of archery very well.”

“Gurudeva, I want to become the best archer in the whole world,” Arjuna added.

Guru Dronacharya was so pleased that he blessed Arjuna.

“All my blessings are with you, my dear, son.”

As time elapsed, Arjuna became the greatest archer in the entire world. No one could ever dare to challenge him. Even gods and goddess paid him great respect.

Arjuna wanted to become the best archer in the world, so he became; you too become like Arjuna with your sheer hard work and dedication.
