KURUKSHETRA
The land of  Dharma

UNIQUENESS

Seldom can one come across any Hindu living here or abroad, who hasn't either heard, or uttered the sacred word 'Kurukshetra' at least once in his life time. Kurukshetra, the land of king Kuru is known by various names, like Brahmavrata, Veda bhoomi, Dharmakshetra etc. Tradition ascribes it to the scat of Vidhatha - the Creator of the world, and it is from here the first civilization sprouted; and was rocked and nourished before shooting up into the cultural firmament to remain as the pole-star for other cultures to flourish, either by partial imitation, or total absorption of its indomitable eternal spirit. It was the Ratna Garbha that gave birth to immortal rishis and deathless emperors, who molded the Aryan culture and spread it to the four corners of the world. It was the heart that throbbed with ennobling aspirations of mankind, and the veritable hub around which heroic exploits and dharmic prabodhas spun hand in hand and enjoyed their heyday. It was here Bhagavadgita, the song celestial and the Testament of Humanity was propounded, and its Dhanna gosha started echoing throughout the world down the ages.
