said: To him who was thus overcome with pity and who was despondent, with eyes full of
tears and agitated, Krishna spoke these words:Whence
has this perilous strait come upon thee, this dejection which is unworthy of you,
disgraceful and which will close the gates of heaven upon you, Oh Arjuna?
Yield not to impotence, Oh Arjuna. It does not
befit thee. Cast off this mean weakness of the heart. Stand up, Oh scorcher of the foes!
