Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The Supreme Lord Krishna placed that most excellent of chariots in front of the Kaurava commanders Bhishma and Drona saying: See the assembled Kurus.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Madhvacarya has no commentary so we present Baladeva Vidyabhusanas. Placing the chariot in front of Bhishma and Drona between the two opposing armies Lord Krishna said: O Partha observe all these Kauravas and see those who are favoring them. The use of the word Partha emphasizes that as Arjuna is the son of Kunti who is the sister of Vasudev who assumed the role of being Lord Krishnas father; then He will as family engage Himself by accepting the position of Arjunas chariot driver. The use of the word Hrsikesa signifies that Arjuna will lose his desire to fight so what is the purpose of viewing the enemy army on the battlefield and within Lord Krishnas words an innuendo of taunting was hidden. Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 1, verse 26 Madhvacarya has no commentary so we present Baladeva Vidyabhusanas. Thus having been addressed by Lord Krishna in this way, Arjuna viewed the enemy soldiers among paternal uncles like Bhurisrava, and godfathers like Bhishma and Somadatta, and acaryas like Drona and Kripa, and maternal uncles like Salya, Sakuni and others, and brothers like Duryodhana, and sons like Laksmana the son of Duryodhana, etc, and grandsons like the sons of Laksmana, etc. friends like Asvattama and well wishers like Kritavarma, Bhagadatta and others and also the soldiers fighting on his own side. In this way Lord Krishna placed that most magnificent of chariots between the two armies in such a way as to give a view of both the armies on the battlefield.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

After attentively surveying the army of the Kauravas arranged in battle formation, Arjuna the son of Pandu on whose flag bears the image of Hanuman, who set the kingdom of Lanka ablaze, requested Lord Krishna to place their chariot between the two opposing armies. Requested whom? Arjuna requested no lesser peronality than the Supreme Lord Himself, the treasurehouse of such attributes as wisdom, strength, sovereignity, eternality, omnipotence and splendour. Whom by His will created the complete cosmic manifestation in its triple aspect of inception, preservation and dissolution for His own pleasure as in sport. The Supreme Lord Krishna, Hrsikesa, the master of the senses. The Supreme Controller, internally and externally of all living entities evolving and evolved. Who although the Supreme Lord of all, yet descended down to Earth out of His causeless mercy for the redemption of the faithful and even more, He condescended to be Arjunas chariot driver, carrying out his wish to station their chariot in such a commanding position as to be able to readily view the belligerent Kauravas and put within the range of his vision such heroes as Bhishmadeva, Dronacarya and Kripa and the Kings of royal dynasties. At that time the Supreme Lord Krishna said to Arjuna: see what chances there are for the Kauravas victory over thee.
