(THE COMPLETE YOGA SASTRA)
Nimittaani cha pasyaami vipareetaani Kesava ||
Na kaankshe vijayam Krishna Na Cha Raajyam Sukhaani Cha ||
Krishna means - wisdom cum Bliss. Arjuna said, O, Krishna, the personification of Wisdom and Bliss, I am unable to see any good that can come from this battle in which I will be killing my own people. Therefore I do not want to do this Battle. I do not want the Kingdom or any pleasures that would come to me from winning this battle.
On the face of this assertion, we would feel, it was a very noble ideal that Arjuna was speaking of. But was this so?
Arjuna had already said that he did not want the Kingdom or the pleasures coming from killing "His Own" people in this battle. He was now going further in the same mood. H now said that he saw no value what so ever in either the Kingdom or the enjoyment coming from it, or even in life after killing so many of his nearest and dearest peopl.
Govinda means - (1) Protector of Cows ; (2) One who can be known only from Vedic words and explanations;
