How Karna Lost His Earrings and Armour in the Mahabharata?

It was impossible to defeat Karna as long as he was in possession of the earrings and armor gifted to him by Surya, the Sun God. The story as to how Karna lost his earrings and armor is mentioned during the Kurukshetra war in the Mahabharata.

One day an old man came to Karna begging for alms. Karna gave the word to the old man that he will gift whatever he asks.

The old man immediately asked for the earrings and armor of Karna.

Both were part of this body since the day of his birth. It was like a part of his body.

Karna knew losing them meant he would become vulnerable to any weapon. As long as Karna wore the earrings and armor, he was impermeable to any weapon.

To keep his word, Karna parted them. He cut them off from his body and gifted to the old man.

The old man was Indra, the king of Devas and father of Arjuna. He had come to secure them, as he knew the Pandavas could never win the war and it also put the life of his son in danger.

Inner impurity is the result of desire, anger and fear – Jagadguru Kanchi Paramacharya

All of us take care to keep our bodies and our clothes clean. But do we bestow any attention on our inner or mental cleanliness?

Inner impurity is the result of desire, anger and fear.

It is common knowledge that when one is in the presence of one’s mother, one keeps all evil thoughts under control. Similarly in the presence of the Divine mother we should control our evil thoughts.

We can cleanse our hearts only by the holy water of meditation of the Divine mother.

When the heart is so cleansed, it will learn to distinguish the real from the unreal, which will result in the end of births.

A day spent without a conscious attempt to clean one’s heart, is a day wasted.

Impurity of cloth or body will lead to disease which will last only for one lifetime. But impurity of heart will lead to diseases which will afflict the soul for several births.
Jagadguru Sri Maha Periyava - Kanchi Paramacharya
