Abhimanyu 'The Warrior who learned before birth!' | Mythological Story

This is the story of Abhimanyu, the third son of Pandava Arjun. A brave warrior who not only defeated Karna 4 times in war but also scared the Kauravas. Let's begin the story.

This story starts when Abhimanyu was in the womb of Arjun and Subhadra. One night Arjun was explaining to Subhadra the technique of penetrating the Chakravyuh. Charkravyuh is a very complex formation of warriors in seven circles to attack the enemy. Arjun finished the technique to enter and while he was about to tell how to come out of Chakravyuh, Subhadra slept. It is said that a child starts learning from the womb itself, and the same thing happened with Abhimanyu.


Abhimanyu was the son of Arjun but he was also the reincarnation of Varchas, the moon God's son. When the moon god was asked to let his son incarnate himself on earth by the other devas, he made a pact that his son will remain on earth for 16 years only as he could not bear to be separated from him longer than that.

When Abhimanyu was 16 years old, the story of this brave warrior's fight started. This fight was the war of Mahabharat between Kauravas and Pandavas. Abhimanyu being Arjun's son was fighting against Kauravas.

When Guru Dronacharya became the commander of the army of the Kauravas, he created Chakravyuh, and apart from Krishna and Arjun, no one knew the art of penetrating the Chakravyuh. Yudhishthir was in tension. Abhimanyu asked for permission to go to the battlefield and informed that he had heard half the story of penetrating the Chakravyuh while he was in his mother’s womb.
Yes, he remembered everything he heard when he was in the womb of his mother.

So he knew the art of getting inside the Chakravyuh but did not know the way out. Knowing this, Bhima and other Pandavas prepared to support him and he penetrated the Chakravyuh on the battlefield and entered inside it.

During the war, Abhimanyu showed great valor and defeated many soldiers of the Kauravas’ army. He defeated mighty warriors like Karna, Duryodhan, Kripacharya, and Ashwathama – Here Bhima and other Pandavas tried to enter the Chakravyuh but Jaydrath did not let them enter.

Inside the Chakravyuh, the Kauravas were feeling helpless in front of Abhimanyu’s valor and war expertise. Then, Duryodhan along with the seven mighty Kauravas attacked Abhimanyu who was alone. Abhimanyu fought courageously. His weapons broke while fighting and the chariot too was destroyed.

On one side there was Abhimanyu alone and weaponless and on the other side, there were seven mighty Kauravas loaded with weapons. When no weapon was left with Abhimanyu, he picked up the wheel of the chariot and used it as his weapon and faced the Kauravas. He held his own until his sword broke and the remaining chariot wheel shattered into pieces. Abhimanyu was killed shortly thereafter when Dushasan’s son Durmasana crushed his skull with a mace. At his death, Kauravas blew the trumpet to declare their victory, and Pandavas were very sad.
