Conclusion—The Perfection of Renunciation
Chapter 18: Verse- 74

sanjaya uväca
ity aham väsudevasya pärthasya ca mahätmanah
samvädam imam asrausam adbhutam roma-harsanam[1]


Sanjaya said: Thus have I heard the conversation of two great souls,krsna and Arjuna. And so wonderful is that message that my hair is standing on end.


In the beginning of Bhagavad-gita, Dhrtarastrah inquired from his secretary Sanjaya, “What happened on the Battlefield of Kuruksetra?” The entire study was related to the heart of Sanjaya by the grace of his spiritual master, Vyäsa. He thus explained the theme of the battlefield. The conversation was wonderful because such an important conversation between two great souls had never taken place before and would not take place again. It was wonderful because the Supreme Personality of Godhead was speaking about Himself and His energies to the living entity, Arjuna, a great devotee of the Lord. If we follow in the footsteps of Arjuna to understand Krsna, then our life will be happy and successful. Sanjaya realized this, and as he began to understand it, he related the conversation to Dhrtarastrah. Now it is concluded that wherever there is krsna and Arjuna, there is victory.
