2.10. O descendant of Bharata (O Dhrtarastra) ! Hrsikesa, as if [he was] smiling, spoke to him who was sinking in despondency in between two armies.

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

2.7-10 Karpanya-etc. upto vacah. By the portion in between the two armies etc., [the Sage] indicates this : Beings possessed by doubt, Arjuna had not abstained from the war totally; for, he says thus : Please teach me, who am taking refuge in you. Therefore while he still remains just in between both knowledge and ignorance, he is taught by the glorious Bhagavat.
