Bhagavad Gita – Crowd Read – Chapter 1 – Summary

The armies of Kaurvas & Pandvas are assembled opposite one another at Krukshetra, ready to fight. When Arjuna sees Drona, Bhishma and his kinsmen among the people he must fight against and kill, he is overwhelmed and confused. He speaks to Krishna, his best friend and cousin, about his dilemma.

Arjuna does not desire any victory, kingdom or happiness for which he must kill his kinsmen. The war will result in deaths of innumerable men and destruction of their families and subsequently the whole society. This would be a great sin and anyone who causes this would end up in hell. He would rather be killed by his opponents than commit this sin.

After explaining his reasons against the war to Krishna, Arjuna puts down his bow and awaits Krishna’s reply.
