Stolen statues of Duryodhana, Balarama and Bhima recovered

cambodian_duryodhanaThere’s a nice article on a norwegian site about a thousand year old stolen statues of  Duryodhana, Balarama and Bhima has been recovered and taken back to Cambodia. The image above is of the three statues.

The statues are large, the one of Duryodhana is 158 cm tall (which is about my size). I suddenly picture myself standing among these statues and suddenly I’m at Kuruksethra where it all happened. Suddenly it looms on me that the setting of Bhagavad-gita is war. Imminent war of killing ones family member. How dramatic it is; furthermore, I’m a vegetarian because I don’t want to harm living beings, and here they are in a situation where they have to kill family members.

Just look at the wall hanging/painting behind those statues.
