Shree Krishna’s words had a profound impact on Arjun. As he gazed upon the vast armies assembled on both sides of the battlefield, a heavy feeling of despair enveloped his heart. It was a stark realization that all those who stood before him, ready for battle, were his own kin, belonging to the same Kurus lineage.
The valiant warrior who, just moments ago, had been determined to exact vengeance on the Kauravas for their wickedness, now found himself overwhelmed with fear and doubt. The magnitude of the impending destruction and suffering that this war would bring began to erode his once unwavering resolve. In light of his inner turmoil, Sanjay aptly referred to him as “Kaunteyah,” signifying that Arjun had, in that moment, adopted a more tender-hearted disposition, reminiscent of his mother, Kunti.
However, amidst his confusion and inner turmoil, Arjun’s mind was filled with a barrage of questions, leaving him seeking clarity and guidance.
