।।1.15।।अन्तर्यामी भगवान् श्रीकृष्णने पाञ्चजन्य नामक तथा धनञ्जय अर्जुनने देवदत्त नामक शंख बजाया और भयानक कर्म करनेवाले वृकोदर भीमने पौण्ड्र नामक महाशंख बजाया।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Now the names of the conch shells sounded by the Supreme Lord Krishna, Arjuna and Bhima are being described. The names Dhananjaya is used for Arjuna and means winner of wealth. The name Vikroda is used for Bhima and can mean he of terrible deeds or he whose appetite is voracious just like a wolfs.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Madhvacarya has no commentary so we present Baladeva Vidyabhusanas. Pancajanya is the name of Lord Krishnas divine, transcendental conch shell and the other names mentioned are the conch shells of the five Pandavas. This signifies that there were many such divine conch shells present on the side of the Pandavas but on the side of the Kauravas there were not any and so none were mentioned. By referring to Lord Krishna as Hrsikesa, the director of everyones senses it is indicative that with the Supreme Lord directing their cause victory was certain for the Pandavas. The use of the name dhanajaya for Arjuna meaning conqueror of riches indicates that he would conquer all the wealth by defeating all the rich and powerful kings arrayed against him on the battlefield and with the word karma meaning reactions to actions added to the name of Bhima refers to his slaying the demon Hidamba after he and his mother and brothers were forced to flee their burning house instigated by Duryodhana and indicates what is in store for him in the future.

There is no commentary for this verse.

Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

In order to subtly convey the superiority of the Pandavas, Sanjaya expresses in this verse beginning with the word pancajanyam which is the name of Lord Krishnas transcendental conch shell and then mentions the names of the divine conch shells of Arjuna and Bhima.
