ATHA: SRIMAD BHAGAVAD GITA

ATHA: PRATHAMODHYAYA: ( FIRST CHAPTER)

ARJUNA VISHADA YOGA: ( ARJUNA’S DESPONDENCY)

sloka 1 transliteration; Sanskrit to English

Dhrutarashtra Uvacha

dharmakshetre kurukshetre samaveda yuyutsava:

mamaka pandavaschaiva kimakurvata sanjaya ——–1/1

Word to word meaning:

(Q=&t=r={!M Wv==c=) (Dhrutarashtra Uvacha)- Thus Dhrutarashtra said

s=]j=y= (Sanjaya) – Sanjaya!, Q=m=*Z=eF=e (Dharmakshetre)- (In the )the Dharmabumi of ,
ku:oZ=eF=e (kurukshetre)- Kurukshetra, s=m=v=et== (samaveta:) those assembled , y=uy=uts=v=/ (yuyutsava:)- with a desire of fighting , m==m=k:=/ mamaka:- my people , p==[#v== c= Av= (pandava: cha eva)- and these sons of Pandu , ik:m=< aku:v=*t= (kim akurvata:)- What did they do ?

Sloka meaning:

 

Dhrutarashtra said, “Sanjaya ! What did my people
and the sons of Pandu, assembled with the desire of fighting in the Dharmabhumi of Kurukshetra do ?”

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Dharmakshetre- because it was here that the devas conducted a yagnya.
Krurukshetre- because it was here that King Kuru did tapasya. Since
Dhrutarashtra was a descendant of Kuru, it was natural that he praised
the land. Dhrutarashtra’s partiality is totally exposed here in the
way he asks what his own sons and pandu’s sons did. It was
Dhrutarashtra’s inept handling and his silent approval of the conduct
of his sons that led to this war. Sanjaya also told the blind king
after the war that he alone was responsible for the total annihilation
if Kuru Dynasty and a mammoth number of kshatriyas.
