Gita Chapter 1, sloka 27(part), 28 (part)

Jai Sri Ram

Priya Sadhaks,

Delve deep into Krishna’s thoughts with love and respect, recite the dhyana slokas, and the slokas studied in this chapter so far. Memorize the following sloka  as you read it.

Gita Chapter 1, sloka 27(part), 28 (part)

t==n=< s=m=IZy= s= k:=Ent=ey=/, s=v==*n=< b=nQ=Un=< av=òsq=t==n=< ||————27 part

k&:p=y== p=ry==iv={!=e, iv={=Idá< wdm=< ab=>v=It=< + ——————- 28 part

Sloka English Transliteration

tAn sameekshya sa kounteya sarvAn bandhoon avasthitAn ||

krupayA parayAvishto visheedannidam abraveet |

sloka word to word meaning:

s=m=IZy= (sameekshya)- seeing ;  s=v==*n=< (sarvAn)- all ; t==n=< (tAn) – those ; b=nQ=Un=< (bandhoon)- kinsmen ; av=òsq=t==n=< (avasthitAn)- gathered (together ) ; s= (sa )- that ; k:=Ent=ey=/ (kounteya🙂 – Son of Kunti (Arjuna) ; a=iv={! / (Avishta:)overcome with ; p=ry== (parayA)- great ; k&:p=y== (krupaya)- compassion ; ab=>v=It=< (abraveet)- spoke ; wdm= (idam)- thus ; iv={=Idá ( visheedan)- (in) grief

Sloka Short meaning:

Seeing all those kinsmen gathered together, that son of Kunti , (Arjuna), overcome with great compassion, spoke thus in grief.

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

Sanjaya uses `Kounteya’ here. It was Kunti who ordered her sons to fight after Sri Krishna’s visit to hastinapur failed to yield.

Arjuna , now sees `sarvan bandhoon’- instead of my army and the enemy army.

Krupaya- Swamy Ramsukhdas takes this as `cowardice’ instead of just `compassion’. But I have used the direct meaning of compassion since this was the cause and cowardice was the result.

Arjuna’s alienation from his swadharma of warfare is now mentally complete. In he next slokas he reveals these as well in  words.

Hare Krishna
