Aug 23 '15 at 21:37 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @ViruMax That link just contains a summary of some play written by a guy named T. P. Kailasam. I want to know what Hindu scripture actually says.
Aug 23 '15 at 15:32 comment added ViruMax creative.sulekha.com/ekalavya-s-death_115746_blog I think this is the story you want.

Aug 12 '15 at 15:38 answer Annonymous timeline score: -1
Aug 12 '15 at 15:36 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @Annonymous Ekalavya is mentioned in the Drona Parva in the list of kings who were killed before the war so that they would not join the Kaurava side: sacred-texts.com/hin/m07/m07178.htm "If Jarasandha, and the ruler of the Chedis, and the mighty son of the Nishada king, had not been slain, they would have become terrible. Without doubt, Duryodhana would have chosen those foremost of car-warriors (for embracing his side). They had always been hostile to us, and, accordingly, they would all have adopted the side of the Kauravas." Ekalavya is the son of the Nishada king.
Aug 12 '15 at 15:31 comment added Annonymous Keshav Srinivasan = Lord Krishna mentions in gita that he has already defeated or killed the maharathis fighting on behalf of Kauravas, and it is symbolic killing only to be completed by Arjuna. This statement cannot be interpreted as Lord Krishna took weapons (astras) in his own had. Recall in bhishma purva, when Arjuna unable to fight with Grandpa Bhisma, Lord Krishna takes his sudarshana chakra to kill Bhishma and Bhishma being ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu recognizes the avatar of Lord Krishna and comes down from his chariot and bows

Aug 8 '15 at 21:49 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @ShreevatsaR Oh, so Krishna doesn't even meet Ekalavya in that chapter? In that case I think Ekalavya survived that encounter, because multiple scriptures describe Krishna killing him, and I've seen claims that Krishna specifically killed him with a rock.
Aug 8 '15 at 21:46 comment added ShreevatsaR @KeshavSrinivasan The latter. After the first 7 verses, it seems to be Krishna returning from his trip to Kailasa and describing what he saw.

Aug 8 '15 at 21:43 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @ShreevatsaR Thanks! Do you mean you've just read the first seven verses, or do you mean it stops talking about Ekalavya after the first seven verses?
Aug 8 '15 at 21:39 comment added ShreevatsaR @KeshavSrinivasan That mahabharata-resources.org/harivamsa/bhavishyaparva/… at least is not clear about Krishna killing Ekalavya: it (first 7 verses) reads more like Balarama chasing Ekalavya away (and "winning" over him, which could mean killing I guess).
Aug 8 '15 at 17:49 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @Annonymous No, that's not possible, because the Drona Parva chapter I quoted from occurs right after the death of Ghatotkacha: sacred-texts.com/hin/m07/m07178.htm Krishna lists various people that he defeated beforehand so that the Pandavas wouldn't have to defeat them during the Mahabharata war. Note that this chapter occurs before the death of Dronacharya.

Aug 8 '15 at 16:55 comment added Annonymous Ekalavya gets killed in Mahabharata war after death of Dronacharya, he is encouraged to participate in the war by Karna. Lord Krishna vowed not to take weapons into hand.

Aug 7 '15 at 19:34 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @Krishna I looked in the Harivamsha, and right after the death of Paundraka there's a chapter titled "Ekalavya hounded off", which suggests that he survived that encounter: mahabharata-resources.org/harivamsa/bhavishyaparva/… Unfortunately, I couldn't find an English translation of that chapter (the website only has English translations of some of the chapters), so can you take a look at the Sanskrit and tell me if it says whether Ekalavya lived or died?
Aug 7 '15 at 18:36 comment added user808 @@Keshav -H.H.Wilson in his Vishnu purana translation as part of Book 5, Chapter 4, in the notes section says that in Hari Vamsa purana, Paundrika along with Ekalavya attacks Dvaraka in the absence of Krishna and Krishna returns from kailasa and kills paundrika. So, in all probability Krishna killed Ekalavya too in same fight.
