In fact, in a very melodramatic twist, Karna‘s real mother was indeed Kunti, the mother of the Pandavas. Karna was an illegitimate child born to her, before her marriage to prince Pandu, of Hastinapura.
Thus Karna, who now is in the Kaurava camp, was in fact, a step brother of the Pandavas.
I like your comment, “And it just rmneids me to keep showing up, even if I don’t always know why.” I think that is a beautiful image. I read the Bhagavad Gita right before we went to India as part of a class I audited on Hindu texts. We read digestible English translation versions of the Ramayana and Mahabharata, and as a final project I read the Bhagavad Gita, but I think I need to do it again. I didn’t really appreciate it when I read it. At the time I enjoyed more the stories of the Ramayana and Mahabharata.I think I just didn’t understand it, I tend to rush when I read anyway, and I think it is probably a text that needs a lot of time and reflection.
