The Bhagavadgita -S. Radhakrishnan
Samkhya Theory and Yoga Practice
3. klaibyan ma sma gama partha
rudhirapradigdhan: smeared with blood. If we make real to ourselves the victims of every bloodstained page of history, if we hear the woes of women, the cries of children, the tales of calamity, of oppression and of injustice in its myriad forms, no one with any human feelings would delight in such bloodstained conquests.
6. na cai 'tad vidmah kataran no gariyo vad va jayema yadi va no jayeyuh yan eva hatva na jijivisamas te 'vasthitah pramukhe dhavtarasrah
(6) Nor do we know which for us is better, whether we conquer them or they conquer us. The sons of Dhrtarastra, whom if we slew we should not care to live, are standing before us in battle array.
