Lineage of Mewar

79 - 117 Vishvash (or Vidhyuti) - Shakay

79. Vishvash or Vidhyuti
1675 B.C.E
‘Rashtra’ and righteousness became paramount as Aryan culture became the dominant force across the Gangetic plain. And Veer Vinod delved into the epic Mahabharata to focus on the lineage of the Suryavanshi Kings.

In the epic battle fought in Kurukshetra, north of Delhi, between the Pandavas and Kauravas, all the major kingdoms and tribes of the sub-continent were pitched in battle against each other. The Kings of Madhyadesa and Kasi, Kosala, Magadha, Matsya, Chedi, and the Yadus of Mathura had allied with Pandavas; the allies of Kauravas comprised the King of Pragjyotish, the Kambojas, Yavanas, Sakas, Kaikeyas, Sindhus and Sauviras, Mahishmati and Avanti in Madhyadesa.

Mahabharata, the single longest poem of the world, enunciated the core values of Kshatriya kingship: Truthfulness and honour, valour and sacrifice for the kingdom, ethical code in peace and war, respect for the Guru or teacher, loyalty and gratitude.

Kshatriya Kings, across the ages, embodied these core values and traditions. Territorial integrity not acquisition remained foremost; common good not self-interest became the goal. The Rig-Vedic concept of ‘Rashtra-sutra’ came alive in the thoughts, words and deeds of the Suryavanshi Kings.

Veer Vinod mentioned the supreme sacrifice of Brahadbal on the battlefield of Kurukshetra.

The ascendancy of Magadha and the rise of the Shakyas was a testimony to the indomitable spirit of Kshatriya-Kings among whom; Bimbisara was one of the greatest.

Dynastic relations with King Prasenjit-II of Kosala helped Bimbisara expand the empire of Magadha.

Under Ajatshatru, Magadha established the monarchical system across the Ganges plain.

The divine nature of Kshatriya kingship was now firmly entrenched. Elaborate ritual sacrifices - the Rajasuya and the Ashwamedha were performed by the Kings to affirm their divinity and keep alive the Vedic traditions.
