Story of Baba Khatu Shyam
According to the legend, Barbarika, the son of Ghatotkacha, went to join the battle of Mahabharata after taking his mother’s blessings and promising to support the defeated side. Sri Krishna sensed the end of the war with their arrival. Shri Krishna knew that if the Kauravas were defeated in battle, Barbarik, according to his promise, would side with them, which could lead to the defeat of the Pandavas.
Let us tell you that after thinking all this, Shri Krishna disguised himself as a Brahmin and asked Barbarik for a glass donation, but Barbarik was surprised that why a Brahmin wanted his glass? Thinking this, Barbarika asked the Brahmin his true identity, then Shri Krishna gave him his great vision. Barbarika expressed to Shri Krishna his desire to see the war of Mahabharata to the end and Shri Krishna accepted this and separated his head from the Sudarshana Chakra.
