Begetting(forgive my ignorance) - I thought in Dwapara yuga Kunti Begot
Yudishtira,Bhima and Arjuna. Also Pandu/Dhrithrastra/Vidura as well were
result of this?
Were there no sacrifices of Animals in previous yoga?
Did Rakshasas/Asuras sacrifice animals/human beings?
If they did, why is it that in scriptures they consider this happening
only in Kaliyuga?
