A Summary of the Srimad Bhagavatham : Ch-7. Part-8.

7.Sri Krishna’s Kurukshetra Lila :


“Arjuna, how come you are here at this moment?” said Sri Krishna.

“No sir! I have come first,” said Duryodhana from behind.

“Oh! You have also come,” said Krishna.

Students of the Mahabharatam tell us that Krishna’s sideward glance at Duryodhana was enough to seal Duryodhana’s fate at that moment.

It is believed that it is very inauspicious for a person to be looked at askance by anybody; and that is what happened.

Sri Krishna said, “You have come first, but I saw Arjuna first. Also, he is younger, you are the elder. Don’t you think it is proper for me to speak to the younger one first, especially as I saw him first?”

Then turning to Arjuna, Sri Krishna asked, “What made you come here?”

Arjuna replied, “Great Master, you know what is going to happen. War has become inevitable. We all want your help.”
