Oh Madhusudana ! I do not like to kill these preceptors (teachers), fathers,sons, as also grandsires, maternal uncles, fathers-in-law, grandsons, brothers-in-law and other kinsmen as well , even if they kill me; not even if I get the three worlds; then will I kill them for this earth ?
`I do not like to kill my relatives’
`even if I get three worlds’
`then why for this earth ?’
Arjuna has forgotten the cause of this war. It was for the establishment of dharma. He also has forgotten who he is. He thinks himself as a son, son in law, father, grandfather , brother in law, father in law and kinsman by calling all those by such names.
He has forgotten that he is a kshatriya and his swadharma is to fight on call.
He has also forgotten that Dharma knows no names and brooks no relationship.
