Yudhisthira is the eldest son of Pandu and Kunti, the king and queen of the Kuru Dynasty, with a central government in Hastinapura. The first part of the Mahabharata Book (Adiparwa) tells of the curse that Pandu experienced after killing a brahmin named Resi Kindama by accident. The brahmin was hit by Pandu's arrow when he and his wife were copulating in the form of a pair of deer. By the end of his death, Resi Kindama had cursed Pandu that one day he would die when intercourse with his wife. Regretfully, Pandu abandons the throne of Hastinapura and begins life as a hermit in the forest to lessen lust. His two wives, Kunti and Madri, faithfully followed him. After a long period of unproduced descent, Pandu expressed his intention to have children. Kunti who mastered the Adityahredaya spell immediately manifested her husband's wishes. The mantra is the science of the caller of the gods to get a son. By using that mantra, Kunti succeeds in bringing in the Dharma God and gaining the son's gift from him without going through intercourse. The first son was named Yudhisthira. Thus, Yudhisthira became the eldest son of Pandu, as a result of the giving of Dharma, the god of justice and wisdom. The story in Javanese wayang is somewhat different. According to this version, Puntadewa is the son of Pandu who was born in the palace of Hastinapura. The arrival of Bhatara Dharma merely helps the birth of Puntadewa and gives his blessing. Thanks to the aid of the god, Puntadewa was born through Kunti's crown. In Javanese wayang, Puntadewa names are used more often, while the name Yudhisthira is only used after he grew up and became king. This version depicts Puntadewa as a white-blooded man, which is an allegory that he is a sacred heart figure and always upholds the truth.
