Do you use any special ablution, spells or herbs? A powerful knowledge of roots drugs?
Some prayer or Fire oblation Yaga or Drug? Tell me the glorious secret of your sexual power, Krshnaa! Krishna with a short vowel sound is Lord Krishna; Krishnaa with a long vowel is Draupadi When Sathyabhama stopped speaking, Draupadi replied: Such questions and uncertainties do not become you. When a husband finds out that his woman uses spells and drugs on him, he gets as frightened of her as of a snake that has got into the house.
What peace that a frightened man have, and what happiness without peace? No husband has ever been made uxorious with a magic spell! It is murderous men who under the name of herbs use poison or the dreadful diseases that have been sent by his ill wishes. The powders a man takes on the tongue or skin will kill him shortly, no doubt of that. In return for their affection I place my soul in theirs, obey them without self- seeking and guard the hearts of my husband without fear or wrong word, wrong stand, wrong glance, wrong seat, wrong walk or misinterpretation of a gesture; that is the way I serve the Parthas, men like sun, fire and moon, great warriors who kill with a glace, awesomely sharp and mighty.
No other men could please me, be a God or man or a Gandharva, youth rich or handsome. The epic does not explicitly discuss this,but the possibility of jealously tearing the brothers apart is repeatedly alluded to.
The sage Narada warns the Pandava brothers of conflict that can destroy their bond. Narada suggests that they make careful bedroom arrangements to allow equal and exclusive access to each husband for a limited period of time. Any brother who enters her chamber when she is with another husband will have to perform penance. Arjuna does stumble in once while she is in the arms of Yudhishtira and so has to go on a pilgrimage to atone.
During this 'pilgrimage', he ends up with three more wives. Every brother has exclusive rights to Draupadi's chamber for a year, and then has to wait for four years for the next turn.
Why one whole year? Perhaps because it gave Draupadi enough time to bear a child for that husband without any paternity issues.Why Draupadi married five Pandavas -Mahabharat
She bore each of her husbands a son. Before she moves to the next husband,Draupadi walks through fire to regain her virginity and purity. Such rules were never placed before polygamous husbands. But Draupadi had a rule of her own for her husbands. She makes it very clear to her husbands that they cannot bring any other wife into the same house. Thus all the Pandavas have other wives, but these wives stay with their parents and the Pandavas have to travel out of the city to visit their other wives in the four years that Draupadi is intimate with the other brothers.
The only exception is made for Krishna's sister, Subhadra, who marries Arjuna.
In a dialogue with Krishna's wife, Satyabhama,Draupadi explains how she serves her husbands, satisfies their needs and makes herself indispensable, and loved. Draupadi comes across as a practical woman who knows she has to work to ensure all her husbands love her and do not feel she favours any one of them.
Stories are told of how Draupadi came to have five husbands. Explanations are needed for a culture desperate to explain such a discomforting practice. Sairandhri informs Kichaka that she is married, and his stalking of her is inappropriate and against Dharma. Kichaka offers her release from being a maid and a life of luxury. Sairandhri says it is wrong for him to continue pursuing her.
Kichaka gets desperate, desires Sairandhri even more. Queen Shudeshna asks Sairandhri to go get wine for her from Kichaka's house.
Sairindhri goes in fear to Kichaka house to get wine. Kichaka meets her there, tries to molest her, Sairandhri pushes him and runs to the court of king Virata. Kichaka chases her, catches and kicks her in the court of Virata in front of the king.
Sairandhri Draupadi demands justice from the king. Virata and Kanka Yudhishthira console Sairandhri, promise due investigation of all facts and then justice. Sairandhri, upset with her humiliation, the delay in justice, scolds both the king and Kanka. The queen learns about the mistreatment of Sairindhri, promises death to Kichaka.
Draupadi meets Bhima, describes her humiliation by Kichaka, as well as how frustrated she has been with the 12 years of exile, for suffering the vice of her husband Yudhishthira.
Draupadi explains why Kichaka is evil, explains she repeatedly rejected Kichaka, and demands Kichaka's death. Next day, Kichaka again approaches maid Sairandhri, and harasses her.
Sairandhri asks him to meet her at a hiding place. Bhima meets Kichaka instead, and kills Kichaka. Friends and family of Kichaka blame maid Sairandhri, for Kichaka's death, catch her and try to burn her to death.
Bhima gets upset, attacks and kills all those trying to burn Sairandhri.
