सीदन्ति मम गात्राणि मुखं च परिशुष्यति।
वेपथुश्च शरीरे मे रोमहर्षश्च जायते।।1.29।।
।।1.28 1.30।।अर्जुन बोले हे कृष्ण युद्धकी इच्छावाले इस कुटुम्बसमुदायको अपने सामने उपस्थित देखकर मेरे अङ्ग शिथिल हो रहे हैं और मुख सूख रहा है तथा मेरे शरीरमें कँपकँपी आ रही है एवं रोंगटे खड़े हो रहे हैं। हाथसे गाण्डीव धनुष गिर रहा है और त्वचा भी जल रही है। मेरा मन भ्रमितसा हो रहा है और मैं खड़े रहनेमें भी असमर्थ हो रहा हूँ।

1.12 1.29 Sri Abhinavgupta did not comment upon this sloka.
1.26 - 1.47 Arjuna said - Sanjaya said Sanjaya continued: The high-minded Arjuna, extremely kind, deeply friendly, and supremely righteous, having brothers like himself, though repeatedly deceived by the treacherous attempts of your people like burning in the lac-house etc., and therefore fit to be killed by him with the help of the Supreme Person, nevertheless said, I will not fight. He felt weak, overcome as he was by his love and extreme compassion for his relatives. He was also filled with fear, not knowing what was righteous and what unrighteous. His mind was tortured by grief, because of the thought of future separation from his relations. So he threw away his bow and arrow and sat on the chariot as if to fast to death.
