Bhagavad Gita

Shrimad Bhagavad Gita: Sankhya Yogam: Chapter 2: Verse 6

BG 2. 6


When deciding on the best course of action, one must weigh the pros and cons & look for several options. Arjuna was contemplating whether defeating the Kauravas or being defeated by them was preferable. Both options seemed to be defeats, for if he won the war by killing the Kauravas, he would have no desire to live any longer.

In the next verse, Arjuna asks Lord Krishna to clear his confusion and guide him.
