KRSNA AND ARJUNA EQUAL VICTORY

KRSNA AND ARJUNA EQUAL VICTORY

18.78: Wherever there is the Master of all mystics, Krishna, and wherever there is Arjuna, the supreme archer, there will also certainly be opulence, victory, extraordinary power, and morality. That is my opinion.
PURPORT
THE BHAGAVAD GITA began with the inquiry of King Dhritarashtra. He was hopeful of the victory of his sons, assisted by great warriors like Bhisma, Drona, and Karna. He was hopeful that the victory would be on his side. But, after describing the scene in the battlefield, Samjaya told the King, "You are thinking of victory, but my opinion is that where there is Krishna and where there is Arjuna, every auspicious thing will also be." He directly confirmed that Dhritarashtra could not expect victory for his side. Victory was sure for the side of Arjuna, because Krishna was there. Some may protest that Krishna incited Arjuna to fight, which is immoral; but the reality is clearly stated: that The Bhagavad Gita is the supreme instruction of morality. The instruction of The Bhagavad Gita is the supreme process of religion and the supreme process of morality-all other processes may be purifying, to lead to this process, but the last instruction of The Gita is the last word of all morality and religion: Surrender unto Krishna. That is the verdict of the Eighteenth Chapter, the last chapter, of The Bhagavad Gita.
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta Purports to the Eighteenth Chapter of The Srimad Bhagavad Gita, in the matter of its Conclusion, and the Perfection of Renunciation.
