न हि प्रपश्यामि ममापनुद्या
राज्यं सुराणामपि चाधिपत्यम्।।2.8।।
2.8 Because, I do not see that which can, even after aciring on this earth a prosperous kingdom free from enemies and even sovereignty over the gods, remove my sorrow (which is) blasting the senses.
2.6 - 2.8 If you say, After beginning the war, if we withdraw from the battle, the sons of Dhrtarastra will slay us all forcibly, be it so. I think that even to be killed by them, who do not know the difference between righteousness and unrighteousness, is better for us than gaining unrighteous victory by killing them. After saying so, Arjuna surrendered himself at the feet of the Lord, overcome with dejection, saying. Teach me, your disciple, who has taken refuge in you, what is good for me.
