Yaksha Prashna


Yaksha Prashna - the famous historic questionaire

Interviews! Most people face an interview of some kind during their lifetime. Some interviewers are famous for creative and hard-to-crack questions. Yudhishtara also faced an “interview” containing about 125 questions from Yamadharmaraja disguised as Yaksha. His answers were on the top-notch, unbeatable! The interview is so famous that it made history called Yaksha Prashna in the epic Mahabharatha! (The questions are related to metaphysics – the branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of things, including abstract concepts such as being, knowing, identity, time, and space)

One of the questions in Yaksha Prashna is: “What is the source of strength to the Earth?” In other words: Earth provides the base of life for all species including human beings, but who is supporting Earth to do its job?

Yudhishtara answered, “Satyam and Dharmam” (in brief)

Vedas state, “Vishnuna: vidhruthe: bhu:mi”, Vishnu is the source of life to the Earth. Connecting the dots between that statement in Vedas and the answer given by Yudhishtara, what it means is that a supreme tatthva named Vishnu supports the Earth through satyam and dharmam

What is satyam?

It is a virtue that refers to the sincerity and truthfulness in one’s thought, word, and action.

What does it mean to be dha:rmic?

It means to lead life based on satyam.
