Teachings from Go-Grahana Parva in Mahabharata

Something that is thought of in one way, may turn out to be another.

Those who are learned in the ancient accounts have said that a war is the worst.

Valour at the right place and right time is recommended for our welfare.

The learned do not gauge how much of load a chariot can take on the words of its maker.

A war guarantees victory only if it is at the right time and the right place. But if it is conducted at the wrong time, it does not bring any fruits.
