The Legend of Mount Arjuna

       In the Mahabharata, Pandawa are the five acknowledged sons of Pandu. Their names are Yudhisthira, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva. Compared to his brothers, Arjuna had the most supernatural power.

     However, he still wanted to have more power by meditating. So He planned to meditate on the top of a mountain to ask the gods to give him supernatural power. He then climbed one big mountain and started meditating on the top of the mountain. (Also read : THE LEGEND OF WATU ULO BEACH)

      Arjuna concentrated meditating very hard days and nights. He was not disturbed by anything around him. While he was meditating, suddenly the mountain was slowly getting bigger and higher. The mountain was so high that it finally touched the heaven. It was the home of the gods. The touching of the mountain made the heaven shaking. The gods and the goddesses were restless.
