Bhagavad Gita

Shrimad Bhagavad Gita: Sankhya Yogam: Chapter 2: Verse 8

BG 2. 8


Arjuna knew that the grief he was experiencing as a result of his devotion to his kinsmen was unusual. It sank deep into his personality and became embedded there. His senses were completely thrown off track by this deep-seated sadness. He couldn’t see or hear anything well. It was not going to be easy to get rid of this sadness. Arjuna, who has accepted Shree Krishna as his Guru, now pours out his heart to him, revealing his pitiful condition.

Arjuna had reached a point when the only thing that mattered to him was the ultimate remedy for grief, a permanent cure rather than a temporary reduction of suffering such as wealth. And the ultimate solution he sought was a higher level of discriminating, or Viveka, which would lead to release.
