Krishna, the Blessed One, filled with love, compassion and pity for Arjuna who was thus smitten with compunction and gloom, and whose eyes were overflowing with tears of grief, spake unto him these words:

"Whence cometh this dejection, O Arjuna, which hath overcometh thee who art standing on the field of battle. This folly and unmanly weakness is most disgraceful, contrary to thy duty --- such weakeneth the foundation of honor. Yield not thyself to this unmanly weakness, for it ill fitteth thee who hath been called the Tormentor Of His Foes. Shake off this despicable fancy, and stand up bravely and resolutely, O Conqueror of Foes I"

Arjuna: "Alas O Krishna, how can I attack with the arrows of the battle, such worthy and honorable men as Bhishma and Drona --- they who are full worthy of my reverence, O Master --- how shall I do this wicked thing?
