Gyaneshwari 20

Gyaneshwari -Sant Gyaneshwar


Despondency of Arjuna

31. And I see omens that are adverse, O Krishna, nor do I foresee any good in killing our men in battle. If I have to slay the Kauravas, then why not Yudhishthira and others? These Kauravas are also our kinsmen, therefore, O Lord, let this war go to blazes. I do not like it. What do we achieve by committing this grievous sin? I foresee that this war will end in disaster, but its prevention will tend to our benefit.
