eSpiritual: Gambling in Indian Mythology

  • Gambling is mentioned during Diwali celebrations and also in the story of Mahabharata. It teaches us about taking calculated risks in life.
  • In Mahabharata, it teaches that excess of everything is bad. If Yudhishthira had not risked Draupadi on that day while plying dice, there would have been no Mahabharata. The same divine dice game became a vice for that moment.
  • Even if you lose while gambling, don’t lose heart; instead take conscious-based decisions. Krishna (consciousness) saving Draupadi (material things in life) means the same.
  • On Diwali day, one starts with new projects in life and taking calculated risks makes sense.
  • Gambling on Diwali can be a symbolic game but should not become a vice.
  • According to mythology, Goddess Parvati enjoyed playing dice with Lord Shiva on this day. It’s a popular saying that those who cling to virtue at this festival time, refusing to gamble, will be reborn as donkeys meaning that it’s foolish not to take calculated risks in business.
  • Losing and winning is part of life and one must learn to balance the two states of mind.
