Why Lord Krishna selected Kurukshetra for Mahabharat war?
When the decision of the Mahabharata war took place, land was searched for it. Sri Krishna wanted to destroy the people with increased asurism by that war. But the fear was that this war was between brother vs brother. Seeing each other die, do not interfere. Therfore, land should be chosen for war where rituals of anger and hatred are in sufficient quantity. He sent several messengers in different directions that they should be told to describe the events there and tell them.
A messenger told that in such a situation, the elder brother said the younger brother to stop the rain water while flowing through the farmyard. But he refused to be clear and said, why do not you stop? I am your slave. The elder brother was overwhelmed by this. He adopted the younger brother with a rug and dragged his dead body to the farmyard and dragged his dead body from the foot from where water was coming out.
Upon hearing this dishonesty, Shri Krishna decided that this land is suitable for the fight of brother-brother. There will be no possibility of intercourse with love or a discussion of arthritis as it will affect their brain when they arrive. The place was Kurukshetra where the war was organized.
This story of the Mahabharata indicates that the rites of auspicious and inauspicious thoughts and actions are long in the land. That is why it should be residing in such a land wheregood ideas and auspiciousworks have been included.
