THE KURU FIELD OF JUSTICE

I see them here assembled,

I see them here assembled,

ready to fight,

seeking to please...

I see them here assembled,

I see them here assembled,

ready to fight,

seeking to please

the kings sinful son,

the kings sinful son,

by waging war.

And thus addressed by Arjuna,

Krishna brought...

Krishna brought

that splendid chariot to a halt,

to a halt

between the two armies.

Seeing them, all his kinsmen,

thus arrayed,

seeing them, all his kinsmen,

thus arrayed,

Arjuna was filled

with deep compassion

and turned to Krishna.

Arjuna was filled

with deep compassion

and turned to Krishna:

""My very being is oppressed...

with compassions harmful taint...""

""My very being is oppressed...""

""With mind perplexed

concerning right and wrong...""

""With mind perplexed

concerning right and wrong,

I ask you,

which is the better course?""

""With mind perplexed...""

""Tell me

and let your words

be definite and clear.""

""Tell me...""

""I am your pupil

and put all my trust in you.""

""You teach me.""

""I am your pupil...""

Seeing them, all his kinsmen,

thus arrayed...

...Arjuna was filled

with deep compassion

and turned to Krishna.

Seeing them, all his kinsmen,

thus arrayed...

But if you,

if you will not,

will not wage this war,

this war

prescribed by your duty...

...then, by casting off

both duty and honor,

you will bring evil on yourself.

If you are slain,

paradise is yours,

and if you gain the victory,

yours is the earth to enjoy.

If you are slain...

Stand up then,

son of Kunti,

resolute for the fight.

Stand up then...

Hold pleasure and pain,

pleasure and pain,

profit and loss,

victory and defeat to be the same.

Then brace yourself for the fight.

So will you bring no evil

on yourself.

Then brace yourself...

To him thus in compassion plunged,

his eyes distraught

and filled with tears,

to him desponding,

Krishna spoke these words,

Krishna spoke these words:

""Whence comes

this faintness on you,

this faintness on you,

now at this crisis hour...?""

""This ill beseems a nobleman,

wins none a heavenly state...""

""This ill beseems a nobleman,

wins none a heavenly state,

but brings dishonor, Arjuna...""

Hold pleasure...

Hold pleasure and pain,

pleasure and pain,

profit and loss,

profit and loss...

...victory and defeat

to be the same.

Then brace yourself

for the fight.

Uo will you bring

no evil on yourself...

TOLUTOY PARM:

When the motives and the fruits

of a mans actions

are freed from desire,

his works are burned clean

by wisdoms fire,

the white fire of truth.

Do the allotted task

for which one is fit,

for work is more excellent

than idleness

and the bodys life

proceeds not without work.

Between theory and practice,

some speak as if they were two,

making a separation

and difference between them.

Yet wise men know

that both can be gained

in applying oneself

whole-heartedly to one.

Do the allotted task

for which one is fit,

for work is more excellent

than idleness

and the bodys life

proceeds not without work.

Between theory and practice

some speak as if they were two,

making a separation

and difference between them.

Yet wise men know...

- Do the alloted task...

Freed from desire...

Freed from desire...

When he casts off attachment

to his deeds,

a man embarks on his work

ever content, on none dependent.

When he casts off attachment...

With thought and self controlled

giving up all possessions,

he cares for his

bodily maintenance without excess.

With thought and self controlled...

- Do the allotted task...
