Link:- In the next verse, the Lord answers Arjuna's question.
khlo'smi lokaksayakrtpravrddho lokansamahartumiha pravrttah
rte'pi tvam na bhavisyanti sarve ye'vasthitah pratyanikesu yodhah
The Blessed Lord said:-
I am the mighty world-destroying kala now engaged in wiping out the world. Even without you the warriors arrayed in the hostile army will not survive. 32
[After reflection, the Lord's cosmic form, seems very extraordinary, because even for Arjuna, possessing the divine eyes it was hard to look at (11/17). Being terrified, Arjuna asked him Who, He was. It seems, that if Arjuna had not put this question to Him, He might have continued to reveal Himself,
to him. But when Arjuna, questioned Him, He ceased revealing Himself and answered his question.]
Kalo'smi lokaksayakrtpravrddhah:- In the preceding verse, Arjuna asked the Lord, Who He was. So the Lord replied, that He was the mighty world-destroying Time.
Lokansamahartumiha pravrttah:- Arjuna, said to the Lord, that he did not know His purpose, what He wanted to do. So the Lord answered, that He wanted to exterminate, the warriors of the two armies.
Rte'pi tvam na bhavisyanti carve ye'vasthitah pratyanikesu yodhah:-Arjuna had said that he would not fight (2/9). So Lord Krsna says, that even without him, the warriors arrayed in the hostile army will not survive, because He Himself is bent upon their destruction, and their chances for survival, are nil. Moreover, he himself has seen that the warriors of both the armies were rushing headlong, into His terrible mouths.
