Give up an individual if it is for the sake of the family.
Give up a family if it is for the sake of a community.
Give up a community if it is for the sake of the nation.
Give up the entire world if it is for the sake of Atma.

This is the advice that Vidura and the elders gave Dhritarashtra when they saw the omens at the time of Duryodhana's birth.
This boy will uproot the Kuru Vamsha.
What were these omens?
After he was born, Duryodhana started crying like a donkey.
All the donkeys around also started crying after him.
Not just donkeys - foxes, dogs, crows - they all started crying loudly.
There was a storm.
The atmosphere started heating up.
The heat became unbearable.
Yudhishthira was already born.

Dhritarashtra called all his advisors and asked - I know Yudhishthira is the eldest.
He should be the next king of Kuru Vamsha.
But at least after him, will this son of mine become the king?
That's when Vidura and others told - the omens are not at all good.
It is better to give up this child in the interest of the nation.
If he ever becomes the king, the kingdom will be destroyed.

But Dhritarashtra couldn't and didn't.
His emotions overpowered him.
He didn't follow Rajadharma.
He didn't think in the interest of the kingdom.
And we know the consequence.
