Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 2 - Verse 8
na hi prapashyami mamapanudyad
yac chokam ucchoshanam indriyanam
avapya bhumav-asapatnam riddham
rajyam suranam api cadhipatyam
Even if I gain a substantial kingdom beyond compare and the power of the demigods, I see nothing that can remove this grief that is eroding my senses.
This second chapter is where the Bhagavad-gita truly begins. Bhagavad-gita literally means the ‘Song of Bhagavan’ and Bhagavan means the Absolute Truth. Here for the first time in Bhagavad-gita, Shri Krishna is addressed as Bhagavan. According to Vedic scholars such as Parasara Muni, Bhagavan means one who possesses all wealth, strength, fame, beauty, knowledge and renunciation.
