KARNA VS ARJUNA - FINAL ENCOUNTER
● A DETAILED & COMPREHENSIVE ANALYSIS


THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS THREAD! WHAT KRISHNA -- THE LORD OF ALL WORLDS BELIEVED ABOUT KARNA. BEFORE THE BATTLE HE SAID TO ARJUNA THE FOLLOWING BEAUTIFUL WORDS
Sacred-Text:
[Krishna to Arjuna]

Hear in brief, O son of Pandu! I regard the mighty Karna as thy equal, or perhaps, thy superior! In energy he is equal to fire. As regards speed, he is equal to the impetuosity of the wind. In wrath, he resembles the Destroyer(Mahadeva) himself. Endued with might, he resembles a lion in the formation of his body. He is eight ratnis in stature. His arms are large. His chest is broad. He is invincible. He is sensitive. He is a hero. He is, again, the foremost of heroes. He is exceedingly handsome. Possessed of every accomplishment of a warrior, he is a dispeller of the fears of friends. No one, not even the Gods with Vasava at their head, can slay the son of Radha. No one possessed of flesh and blood, not even the Gods fighting with great care, not all the warriors (of the three worlds) fighting together can vanquish the son of the chariot-rider.

( I beg everyone to cross check this link, if you dont believe me.)

***** Here Krishna clearly said Karna is superior to Arjuna. He even said that not even the Gods fighting with extensive car can defeat him. I ALLOW ALL ARJUNA FANS TO CRY NOW!!! LOOOOOLLLLLL.

Karna Arjuna Battle Starts Now :-----

PART - 1

Beholding that shaft aimed by the Suta's son, O sire, the Pandavas, with cheerless hearts, gave themselves up to great sorrow. That shaft of keen point and endued with the effulgence of Sakra's thunder, sped from Karna's arms, fell upon Dhananjaya's ‪‎chest‬ and penetrated it like a mighty snake penetrating an ant-hill. That grinder of foes, viz., the high-souled Vibhatsu, thus deeply pierced in that encounter, began to ‪reel‬. His grasp became ‪‎loosened‬, at which his bow Gandiva dropped from his hand. He ‪‎trembled‬ like the prince of mountains in an ‪earthquake‬. Availing himself of that opportunity, the mighty car-warrior Vrisha, desirous of extricating his car-wheel that had been swallowed up by the earth, jumped down from his vehicle.

*****Here, see Arjuna's chest was teared by karna's keen arrow. He was "Trembling In Pain" . His gandiva slept from his hand & he "began to reel". Reel means to loose on'e balance ! Arjuna lost his senses, he was weaponless. Karna could have killed Arjuna right away. But he didn't break the rules of war and got down from his chariot to pull the sunken wheel up.

PART - 2

Dhananjaya who resembled the chief of the celestials himself (in energy and might) with three arrows, and he caused five other blazing arrows resembling five snakes to penetrate the body of Krishna. Shot with great force, those arrows, decked with gold, pierced through the ‪‎armour‬ of that foremost of beings and passing ‪out‬ of his ‎body‬ fell upon the earth. Endued with great energy, they entered the earth with great force and arjuna having bathed in ‪blood‬ coursed back towards Karna.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08090.htm

*****Here, see karna shot terrible arrow breaking armour of krishna which passing through body of arjuna & arjuna was "bathed in blood."

PART - 3

Bending then his own loud-sounding bow of irrefragable string, Karna shot showers of shafts. The Suta's son destroyed that burning weapon of Arjuna with his own foe-killing weapon of great power which he had obtained from Rama, and which resembled (in efficacy) an Atharvan rite. And he ‎pierced‬ Partha also with numerous keen shafts.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08089.htm

*****Here, see Karna easily nutralised the burning weapon of Arjuna & once more pierced arjuna by his keen shafts.

PART - 4

Then Karna, with a number of whetted shafts endued with great energy, cut off the string of Arjuna's bow. Similarly he cut off the second string, and then the third, and then the fourth, and then the fifth. The sixth also was cut off by Vrisha, and then the seventh, then the eighth, then the ninth, then the tenth, and then at last the eleventh

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08091.htm

*****Here, see Karna cut the string of Gandiva total 11 times. There is NO such record of Arjuna cutting the string of Vijaya bow possessed by Karna.

PART - 5

the Suta's son pierced Partha with a hundred small arrows, keen and steeped in oil, winged with the feathers of birds, and resembling ‎snakes‬ freed from their sloughs. He then quickly pierced Vasudeva with sixty shafts, and then Phalguna again with eight. Surya's son then pierced Bhima with ‪‎thousandsupon‬ ‪thousands‬ of mighty arrows. Having pierced Krishna and Partha's ‪‎standard‬, Karna ‪‎felled‬ many amongst the Somakas that followed Partha.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08090.htm

*****Here, see karna teared body part of arjuna apart & destroy "standard" of arjuna totally & slain somakas in front of poor and helpless arjuna.

PART - 6
Accomplished in the use of weapons, the Suta's son, stupefying those advancing warriors with his shafts and baffling all the weapons shot by them, ‪‎destroyed‬ their cars and steeds and elephants. And the Suta's son, O king, also afflicted with his arrows many foremost of warriors among them. Their bodies pierced with Karna's shafts, they fell down on the ground, deprived of life and making a loud noise as they fell. Indeed, those mighty combatants, afflicted by Karna of ‎terrible‬ ‪‎strength‬, perished like a pack of dogs afflicted by an angry lion. And once more many foremost of combatants among the Pancalas and many such (among the Kauravas) fell down after this, slain by Karna . Deprived of life by the mighty Karna with well-aimed arrows shot with great force, many fell down, purging the contents of their stomachs. Then thy troops, regarding the victory to be already theirs, clapped furiously and uttered loud leonine roars. Indeed, in that dreadful encounter, all of them regarded the two Krishnas to have been brought by Karna ‪‎under‬ his power.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08090.htm

*****Here, see frustrated pandava maharathis comes to rescue arjuna but killed by karna's terrible strength & fell down like broken mass. Karna destroyed panchalas in front of frustrated arjuna but arjuna was helpless and FAILED to save them from being slain.

PART - 7

Vaikartana (Karna) also, in the midst of that battle, shot thousands of arrows. These, with a loud whizz, fell upon the son of Pandu like ‪ ‎torrents‬ ‪ ‎of‬ ‪‎rain‬ poured from the clouds. Then piercing Bhimasena and Janardana and the diadem-decked Arjuna of superhuman feats, each with three arrows Karna of terrible might uttered a loud awful roar. Struck with Karna's shafts, the diadem-decked Arjuna, beholding Bhima and Janardana, became ‪unable‬ ‪‎to‬ ‪‎endure‬ (the feats of his antagonist).
Thus urged, Karna, with his best endeavours, incessantly shot many arrows. Capable of cutting the very vitals, those blood-drinking shafts, well sped by Karna, slew large numbers of the Pandavas and the Pancalas.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08090.htm

*****Here, karna's arrows passed through body part of arjuna like torrents of rain. Arjuna & bhima were unable to endure the skill of Karna. Within fraction of sec Karna showered rain of arrows & killed thousand of pandava maharathis & panchalas in front of helpless arjuna.
Another point to be noted here is that Karna is being , again, subjected to a group attack. But the Hero Karna, is like always, faing and defeating them single handedly.

PART - 8

Having said these words unto the holy Keshava, Savyasaci (Arjuna) of immeasurable soul bowed unto Brahman and invoked into existence that excellent irresistible weapon called brahmastra which could be applied by the mind alone. Baffling that weapon, however, Karna looked beautiful as he continued, like a cloud pouring torrents of rain, to shoot his shafts. Beholding that weapon of the diadem-decked Arjuna baffled in the midst of battle by Karna, the wrathful and mighty Bhima, blazing up with rage,

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08090.htm

*****Here, with terror of karna, arjuna started to used divyastras & launch bramhastra. In next moment Karna nutralised it by ordinary shafts. Bhima became angry bcoz of failure of frustrated arjuna. Another thing is that, while handling all this, Karna looked beautiful, which means he was not even a single bit stressed or tensed. He was relaxed !

PART - 9

all of them then regarded the two Krishnas as brought by Karna under ‪‎his‬ ‪power‬, seeing that valour, ‪‎incapable‬ of being borne by foes, of the mighty car-warrior Karna. Beholding that weapon of Dhananjaya frustrated by Karna in the midst of battle,

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08090.htm

*****Here, Karna again brought arjuna under his control & all weapons of arjuna failed against karna. Karna cut his all weapons by his keen arrow, and Arjuna like always was frustrated but Karna the hero, like always, relaxed !.

PART - 10
[Bhima to Karna]
"How, O Jishnu(Arjuna), could this karna fallen off from virtue, this Suta's son, putting forth his might in battle, slay so many foremost of Pancala warriors, in thy sight? Before now thou couldst not be conquered by the very gods or the Kalakeyas. Thou receivedst the touch of the arms of Sthanu himself. How, then, O diadem-decked Arjuna, could the Suta's son pierce thee ‪first‬ with ten long shafts such as are used by car-warriors? That the Suta's son should today have succeeded in baffling the arrows shot by thee seems to me to be very amazing.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08089.htm

*****Here, Bhima makes fun of arjuna for his failure. He asked arjuna, how this karna teared his cheast with "10 long shafts".?? How karna destroyed all weapons of arjuna & killed thousands of warriors in front of frustrated arjuna. Bhima sees the feats of karna very amazing.

PART - 11

Then Vasudeva, beholding Partha's shafts baffled by Karna, said unto the former, "What is this, O diadem-decked Arjuna, that Karna should succeed in crushing thy weapons today with this? Why dost, thou, O hero, lose thy wits? Markest thou not that the Kauravas, (standing behind Karna), are even now shouting in joy? Indeed, all of them know that thy weapons are being baffled by Karna with his.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08089.htm

*****Here, lord krishna also makes fun of frustrated arjuna for his failure. Even krishna is having doubt for skills of arjuna. Krishna asked" How you can lose against Karna, whom you always consider inferior to you..??

PART-12

This arrow, O Karna, will not succeed in striking off Arjuna's head. Searching carefully, fix another arrow that may succeed in striking off thy enemy's head." Endued with great activity, the Suta's son, with eyes burning in wrath, then said unto the ruler of the Madras, "O Shalya, Karna never aimeth an arrow twice.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08090.htm

****Here, See when shalya suggests Karna to fire the same weapon twice in a row then Karna refused bcoz it was against the rules of War.Yes! it was.  Karna gave an ideal example of real fair warrior.

PART-13

Indeed, seeing that snake (in the form of an arrow) aimed by Karna, Madhava, that foremost of all persons endued with might, put forth his strength and thus pressed down with his feet that car into the earth.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08090.htm

*****Here, See when Karna launched Nagastra then Krishna saved Arjuna from Karna by pressing the chariot down with his feet. The arrow striked Arjuna's crown. If Krishna wouldn't have done that, the arrow would have striked Arjuna's neck, beheading him.

PART-14
[ Aswasen to Karna ]
Do not disregard me. Do my bidding. I will slay thy foe. Shoot me without delay." Hearing those words, Karna said, "Karna, O snake, never desires to have victory in battle today by relying on another's might. Even if I have to slay a hundred Arjunas, I will not, O snake, still shoot the same shaft twice."

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08090.htm

*****Here, See Karna was reluctant to fire Nagastra twice as it was against the rule of war. So fair warrior Karna again respected the rules of war.

PART - 15
[ When Karna was trying to unstuck his chariot wheel]
Drawn up with force by Karna, the earth, which had swallowed up his wheel, rose up to a height of four fingers' breadth, with her seven islands and her hills and waters and forests.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08091.htm

***** Here, KARNA LIFTED WHOLE EARTH upto 4 finger's breadth ( approximately 6 cms.) along with his chariot,Krishna,lord shiva, hanuman, all warriors, all humans, animals, mountains,rivers, forest, island all creatures even helpless arjuna also.lol..

PART - 16

Displaying also his own prowess, he seemed to get the better of Dhananjaya at that time. Then Krishna, beholding Arjuna afflicted with the weapons of Karna, said these words unto Partha.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08091.htm

***** Here, FINALLY LORD KRISHNA HIMSELF ACCEPTED SUPERITY OF KARNA OVER ARJUNA. Krishna said to Arjuna, Karna is giving better archey performamce than him.
Karna >>>> Arjuna

PART - 17

Meanwhile the diadem-decked and high-souled Arjuna, recovering his senses, took up a shaft, fatal as the rod of Death, and called anjalika.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08091.htm

******Attention, See here when karna was lifting wheel of chariot, arjuna was totally unconsious. So in last moment It was karna who was winning. Arjuna was nearly defeated by karna. But instead of  killing arjuna  Karna was engaged in lifting wheel. Meanwhile, Arjuna regained his sense, with fear of defeat he invoked Anjalika & killed weaponless Karna from behind breaking rules of war.

PART-18[Krishna's words after Pandavas won the battle]
Hearing (invisible beings cry out) that Bhishma and Drona and Karna and Bhurishrava were slain unrighteously, they became afflicted with grief and wept in sorrow. Beholding the Pandavas filled with anxiety and grief, Krishna addressed them in a voice deep as that of the clouds or the drum, saying, "All of them were great car-warriors and exceedingly quick in the use of weapons! If ye had put forth all your prowess, even then ye could never have slain them in battle by fighting fairly! King Duryodhana also could never be slain in a fair encounter! The same is the case with all those mighty car-warriors headed by Bhishma! From desire of doing good to you, I repeatedly applied my powers of illusion and caused them to be slain by diverse means in battle. If I had not adopted such deceitful ways in battle, victory would never have been yours, nor kingdom, nor wealth! Those four ( Bhisma, Karna, Drona, Bhurisarvas) were very high-souled warriors and regarded as Atirathas in the world

http://sacred-texts.com/hin/m09/m09061.htm

*****Here, See Lord Krishna said that through deceits you all 5 brothers have survived in war .He further said he used his divine illusionary powers against drona bhishma and karna so as to make sure they get slained otherwise it was impossible for all of you to defeat those atirathas in a fair battle .

》》FINAL ANALYSIS OF FINAL ENCOUNTER《《

1) IN FINAL ENCOUNTER, ARJUNA OVERPOWERED OVER KARNA ONLY ON 2 TIMES & KARNA OVERPOWERED OVER ARJUNA TOTAL 9 TIMES.

2) ARJUNA SUCCEED TO INJURED KARNA ONLY AFTER KARNA FORGOT KNOWLEDGE OF DIVINE WEAPONS & HIS WHEEL OF CHARIOT SINK INTO GROUND. KARNA'S CHARIOT WAS SUNK IN GROUND, SO THAT THERE WAS TOO MUCH DIFFICULTY FOR KARNA WHILE STANDING ON CHARIOT BCOZ IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT TO MAINTAIN BALANCE.

3) KARNA OVERPOWERED OVER ARJUNA TOTAL 9 TIMES. BEFORE EFFECT OF CURSES HE CLEANLY GOT UPPER HAND TILL THE END OF BATTLE.

4) IN LAST MOMENT, WHEN KARNA WAS ENGAGED IN LIFTING WHEEL OF HIS CHARIOT, ARJUNA WAS 'UNCONSIOUS" . " TREMBLING IN PAIN" ," BEGAN TO REEL" MEANS HE WAS GOING TO SUFFER CLEAR DEFEAT BY KARNA THATS WHY WITH FEAR OF DEFEAT HE KILLED WEAPONLESS KARNA FROM BEHIND AGAINST RULE OF WAR..

KARNA WAS THE ONLY WARRIOR OF HISTROY WHO GOT "VICTORY OVER DEATH" THATS WHY KNOWN AS "MRUTYUNJAYA"....

  1. Sir ,while fighting with Arjuna ,Karna vehicle was struck but still he continues to fight that means he has no problem fighting with an damaged vehicle,then he made unconscious Arjun but why did he go down to uplift his vehicle he could have waited until Arjuna recovering his senses and what was shalya doing in that case. And when Arjun was awake he take his weapon so why do Karna still uplifting his vehicle
