The Mahabharata War

Q. Why Krishna being the Lord, could not stop the Mahabharat’s war? What efforts did Krishna make to stop the war?

A. Krishna Himself wanted to root out all unwanted elements…

Still Krishna before starting the war did go as Shantidoot (peace messenger) and tried to convince Dhritrashtra and Duryodhana..Krishna gave many pieces of nice advice and even warned about the outcome of war. But Duryodhana instead of listening to Him, was trying to make Him captive. Duryodhana’s idea was, that if he could catch Krishna, Pandavas will become very weak and they will give up the desire to fight.
