English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

11.26 11.27 All these sons of Dhrtarastra like Duryodhana and others like Bhisma, Drona, and Sutas son Karna together with the hosts of monarchs on their side and also the leading warriors on our side, are hastening to their destruction; they enter Your fearful mouths with terrible fangs; some, caught between the teeth are seen with their heads crushed to powder.

Commentary - Chakravarthi Ji

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

This verse relates to verse seven where Lord Krishna states any reality one would care to see is present in His visvarupa or divine universal form. In the visvarupa can be seen the coming victory and defeat in the battle of Kuruksetra which Arjuna will soon be fighting and indeed he sees all the 100 sons of King Dhritarastra with all the kings fighting for the Kauravas along with all the kings and princes and principle warriors on the Pandava side such as Dhristadyumna and Sikhandi rushing into the gaping, fierce mouths and teeth of multitudinous faces of the almighty visvarupa . Arjuna can clearly see Bhishma, Drona and Karna as well entering into these gnashing mouths along with the others. It is not that they are individually entering separately but both sides are speedily entering different mouths at the same time and can be seen to be destroyed therein.
