Bhagavad Gita Chapter 1 Verse 39

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 1 श्लोक 39

कथं न ज्ञेयमस्माभिः पापादस्मान्निवर्तितुम्।
कुलक्षयकृतं दोषं प्रपश्यद्भिर्जनार्दन।।1.39।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी तेजोमयानंद

।।1.39।।परन्तु हेे जनार्दन कुलक्षय से होने वाले दोष को जानने वाले हम लोगों को इस पाप से विरत होने के लिए क्यों नहीं सोचना चाहिये।

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Madhvacarya has no commentary so we present Baladeva Vidyabhusanas. Now the evil consequences of war are described in detail with this verse beginning kula-ksaye pranasyanti. The compound word kula-dharmah meaning the righteous family traditions prescribed in Vedic rites such as the fire ceremony agnihotra and others of this nature due to the destruction of the dynasty causes a lack of qualified family members knowledgeable enough to have them performed. When dharma or righteousness is absent then adharma unrighteousness appears apprehending the remaining dependants along with the whole family destroying the foundations of society.
