Buddha praised King Yudhiṣṭhira as wise, righteous, greatest alms-giver.




If Yudhiṣṭhira was just a "character of an Epic created 2000 years ago", how did Pāṇini mention Yudhiṣṭhira in Aṣṭādhyāyī (8.3.95) dating back to atleast 2400 years? How did Sātavāhanas mention him in inscriptions dating back to 2100 years?

In Aṣṭādhyāyī (8.3.95), Panini explains गवियुधिभ्यां स्थिरः Sutra. Basically, he says that the sibilant *s preceded by front vowel * I becomes the palatal retroflex *ṣ. As an example, he cites the name of Yudhiṣṭhira. What Pāṇini explained is what today's linguists call "Ruki"


If Yudhiṣṭhira was a "2000-year-old fictional character" inspired by King Ashoka as Romila Thapars and Devdutts of this world claim, how did Chanakya (c.320 BC), the minister of Ashoka's grandfather, mention Yudhiṣṭhira in his Arthaśāstra? I dare you to answer Devdutt Pattanaik.

In Chapter 8 of Arthaśāstra, Kautilya compares hunting to gambling. Kautilya says gambling is a bigger vice than hunting and recounts "the history of Yudhiṣṭhira" who lost everything in gambling From Arthashastra 8.1 (English translation by Shamsastry)
