Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 1 - Sainya Darshana - Observing the Armies on the Battlefield

Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 1 - Verse 32-34

O Govinda (Krishna), of what avail to us are kingdoms, happiness, or even life itself when all those for whom we may desire them are now arrayed on this battlefield? O Govinda, of what use is a kingdom and it’s pleasures if those for whom we desire all this – our teachers, elders, sons, grandfathers, maternal uncles, fathers-in-law, grandsons, brothers-in-law and other relatives that are present here on this battlefield – are ready to jeopardize their kingdoms and their lives in this battle? O Madhusudana, even if they wish to slay me, I have no desire to slay them.

Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 1 - Verse 35

O Janardana (Maintainer of all living beings), what to speak of ruling this world, even if we gained sovereignty over the three worlds, what happiness would be attained by killing the sons of Dhritarashtra?
